NBA Picks Friday Night 07/12/12

Today I would like to focus on teams totals, because I feel we get offered some really nice offers today that we can’t pass on.

Oklahoma Thunder – LA Lakers

I have Lakers here at minimum of 103 points, so for me to get them at total 100.5 is a must bet, because I predict they will score 105+ points and Thunder 110+ points.

Lakers have draughts here and there, but overall, they are a very steady 100+ points and you can put money on that.

Thunder gave two great defensive performances against Charlotte and Hornets, but has no problem to speed up the game and knows that they really don’t need to stop their rival below 100 points to win.

I predict very fast pace game and Lakers crossing 100 points line.

Lakers Over 100.5, 1.83 odds – 7 units play- PaddyPower

Philadelphia 76ers –Boston Celtics

I like Over in this game, but decided to take Boston’s Over as the bet here.

This is first leg of B2B game, notoriously known Over spot for Boston, that usually goes all offense in such spots.

Sixers also usually let go a bit and allow slightly more to their opponents, playing at home.

The fact that Boston and Sixers been taking one each lately in the last 6 games and Boston having small revenge angle, after losing at home, adds to the feeling that maybe Boston is the better choice than overall Over.

Boston scored 100 points to Philly, even when they lost the earlier game this season and the fact that it was also first leg of B2B, adds to the feeling that it should be a high scoring game with Boston scoring 98+ points.

Boston Over 95 points, 1.91 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes

Indiana Pacers –Denver Nuggets

I like Over and Indiana, so for me, Over TT Pacers is the perfect choice. Numbers show us that 101 points would have been much more accurate number here, given the way that Pacers improved their offense and the poor defense Nuggets show on defense so far this season.

I think that there is a good chance, both teams score 100+ points here and Pacers still win.

Pacers Over 98 points, 1.98 odds – 7 units play- 5Dimes

New Orleans Hornets –Memphis Grizzlies

Memphisscores 99 points on average on the road. Hornets concede 95 points at home. Furthermore, Hornets conceded above the total set for today forMemphis in 12 out of last 13 games.

Memphis not perfect team on offense, but I fully expect them to control the paint and big time and that will allow them to overcome even a poor shooting day, feeding the ball to Gasol and Z-Bo.

Memphis should score closer to 100 points I believe here.

Memphis Over 94.5 – 1.91 odds – 7 units play – 5Dimes

Detroit Pistons –Chicago Bulls

I like Pistons tonight, but I like Over even more. Bulls allow 94 points on the road.Detroitscore 99 points at home. Pistons lost last home game to the Warriors and after tonight’s game, go for two games on the road, while Bulls have a giant look ahead, playing Knicks at home tomorrow.

I can easily see Bulls letting up a bit on the great defense they been playing lately and concede 94 – 96 points here.

Pistons Over 89.5 points, 1.91 odds – 5 units play- WilliamHill
