GraemeWritten by Graeme

Hey guys,.

Sorry for no tips yesterday I wasn’t around.

I’m also fairly hungover today so todays tips are going to be short. Very short ha.

I’m taking:

Bucks -4:Gotta roll with the Bucks atm even if missing Brogdon.

Heat -2: Mavs struggling hard great spot for the Heat here

Timberwolves -6.5 Minnesota know their issue is on the road and they gotta start picking up big wins here. This is the perfect spot to do that going against the weak Atlanta Hawks. Butler will be playing as well which will help things.

It was a disappointing 1-2 last night.

Pacers -7.5 was a nice and easy one to come in as they thumped the Suns 116-101 and that was even with the Suns putting up a big 36-17 4th quarter.

It was just an excellent team performance by the Pacers and something to take note of – so nice to see something like that.

Pity we couldn’t say that for the other teams in action last night that we had bet on.

The Raptors came to play in Atlana and got off to a big start. They just didn’t give up and won 108-93. We had Atlanta +6 but needed a lot more than that.

I also decided to risk backing the Grizzlies against the Spurs after their win over the Cavs and man I am not sure what happened there. Aldridge took the night off and that sounded great in theory but NOPE. Grizzlies just couldn’t keep up with the Spurs and it was a frustrating one.

Oh well let’s put those two woeful performances behind us and try and get back to it tonight:

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Washington Wizards Betting Tips:

I’m going to take Thunder -5 here.

Record wise it’s a tight matchup but the way either team is performing at the moment – no it is not. Thunder are coming into this on a 5 game win streak and are just rolling. The Wizards meanwhile are losing and not just losing – but losing to BAD teams who are below .500. That’s horrible.

The Wizards defense is not good lately and are letting in a lot of simple ones. While Thunder have amped up their D with Roberson back and the offense is clicking.

Wizards obviously have the players to turn a game around at a moments notice but man do I love me the Thunder tonight.

Nuggets vs Knicks Betting Tips:

Also on Nuggets -5.5. Denver are a beast at home with a 17-6 record. A couple of losses to the poorer teams sure but they are looking to get a good little win streak going at home here and I like them to do that. Knicks coming off that big Warriors loss where Porzingis sat out and while he is expected back tonight he can’t be in the best shape.

Knicks are a bad road team too and I can’t see this game changing that at all.

Well it was a 1-1 day yesterday and if you took the over in the Knicks vs Warriors game that my system suggested, it was a 2-1 day for you.

I was very disappointed in the Magic who led for 3 straight quarters and then just completely dropped the ball at the end of the game. They allowed the Kings to take over and wipe out the deficit and win.

What’s really annoying is that’s something the Kings haven’t been able to do lately. Where the hell did Temple come from??? I mean nothing you could do there – even if you told me beforehand “Hey Garrett Temple is going to enter beast mode in the final quarter” I’d just laugh it off.

We won with the Spurs who beat the Cavs. That one had me nervous too as there was a fair amount of people I saw backing the Cavs. However despite Lebron putting up 28 points the Spurs saw them out to the end with a great performance.

And the over in the Knicks/Warriors was 225pts and that one had a nice 235 points going 10 points over. Thanks system!

Pacers vs Suns Betting Tips:

Going to go with Pacers -7.5 in this one.

I think this will be a tight one but the Pacers are performing well at home lately and are one of the teams to beat the Spurs recently. They’re going up against a Suns team who have been struggling on the road lately.

The Pacers dressing room is a good place to be at the moment with everyone on good terms and willing to fight for each other and that’s the type of thing I like to back.

Hawks vs Raptors Betting Tips:

I’m taking Hawks +6 here.

Hawks come into this having one 3 of their last 4 home games with victories over the Jazz, Pelicans and Spurs.

Raptors beat them a month ago in Toronto but Raptors are really starting to struggle on the road.

Lowry is back but that never seemed to help them against the Timberwolves and having been beaten by the Raps twice, that should motivate Atlanta.

I could totally see it being a win for the Raptors but I like Atlanta to at least keep it nice and close and 6 points is the sweet spot for me.

Grizzlies vs Spurs Betting Tips:

Fading the team that won us money yesterday with Grizzlies -1. Seem’s crazy backing the 17-29 Grizzlies vs the 31-18 Spurs but here we are.

Yeah I loved what the Spurs did last night but I also love the Grizzlies and their performances lately. No matter the opponent they’re putting up some damn solid home performances.

Spurs will be hungover after that victory last night and they have struggled on back to backs lately as it is. I can see them hanging with the Grizzlies early on but I think Memphis will pull away.

Grizzlies -1 is a nice line and I’m happy with it.

It was an 0-1 night last night. We had the Hornets -10 however the Kings came back back in the 3rd beating them 32-20 there. That 12 points was enough for the Kings to cover unfortunately as the Hornets only won by 5 points.

Sorry for the lateness in picks today. I wish I could say there was a good reason for it but really after watching WWE RAW 25th anniversary show, both me and Vin stayed up late drinking and watching the Royal Rumble 94.

So yeah. As someone who is usually in bed by 9pm, staying up till 1:30am drinking and watching the Rumble messed up my day and I actually had a 90 minute freaking nap today.

Quiet night tonight with only 5 games on the board. The Warriors look to bounce back off their 10th loss of the season as they take on the Knicks, and the Celtics look to end their 3 game losing streak in LA as they take on the Lakers.

Magic vs Kings Betting Tips:

We’re going with Magic -6.5.

The Magic have a good little thing going at the moment. They played 4 top teams and didn’t perform too badly at all. Tight games against the Wiz & Cavs and victories over the Celtics and Timberwolves.

They’re going to be pumped for this game and winning twice in a row as they go on against the Kings. The Kings are seriously struggling at the moment and their last road win was against the Nets in December 20th.

Magic seem to have worked things out since Vucevic went out and figured out how to play without him and I like that. They’re showing a lot of fight. The Kings are just a mess on defense at the moment and can’t seem to stop anything. If they are down they don’t seem to know how to come back etc.

Let’s hope the Magic take these guys seriously.

Spurs vs Cavaliers Betting Tips:

We’re going with Spurs +2.5. A lot of the money has went on the Cavs in this one interestingly, changing the line a fair bit.

We know the Cavs can show up for the big games but they are a mess at the moment and getting points at home against them with the Spurs? Think you just gotta go with that.

Granted the Spurs themselves are struggling but they know there is no better time to beat the Cavs than right now and hopefully their offense can get clicking again.

I must admit I do have my fears tha the Cavs offense can run loose and the Spurs won’t be able to keep up with them. But this Spurs D should be good enough to really frustrate the Cavs and you have to expect them to all be up for it as well. I’ll take the points.

Knicks vs Warriors:

Not a tip as I generally don’t do over/unders, but my betting system seriously likes the over 225pts in this game. I usually stay away from them but it likes it enough that I thought I’d mention it for anyone flirting with that bet.

It was a nice 1-0 night last night as we took the Heat and they beat the Bucks.

I must admit I was nervous about that one. I did my reseach in the morning and my system liked it so I went with it. However then I went downtown to the dentist and to get a haircut.

I was talking to my barber about the game as he had lost a bundle on the Heat vs Bulls game and said he was going to blindly take the Heat in their next game. But then we went over this game and he decided against it as hey it’s going up against the Greek Freak. Probably helps that my barber is Greek.

The more I thought about it and our history with the Bucks the more I got concerned with it to the point that I was not sure I was going to take the pick yesterday. Then I went to the dentist, got knocked loopy and came back and slept. Woke up and it’s “oh crap I don’t have the tips out yet” so just went with what we had and we won!

So that was very nice and nice to break our Bucks curse.

It’s January 18th, 2018 and we’ve got 4 games on the board.

Celtics vs 76ers Betting Tips:

I don’t see how we can’t take the Celtics here. They had that tough loss to the Pelicans but that was the Davis show plus they were rusty on the break. They’ve had a great run before that.

76ers barely hung on against the Raptors which was poor after a big lead. Redick is out now and Fultz if he is back tonight won’t be healthy.

They’ll also be losing Holmes who is a key member of the squad down the stretch and in my opinion was a factor in that close one against the Raptors.

I’m taking Celtics -4 here and I fully expect them to make this a nice and relaxing night for us.

That’s the only pick I have today. The other games are just too iffy for me. FWIW it’s worth my system likes Magic +10.5 and Timberwolves +5 but I’m not too certain myself so going to stay away.

A big performance from the New Orleans Pelicans, and Anthony Davis in particular, saw us lose our Celtics -4.5 bet last night.

The Pelicans came out hungry for this one and Davis was in absolute beast mode. They controled the game and Davis put up a whopping 45 points and 16 rebounds in that one.

Cousins was also in spectacular form with 19 points and 15 rebounds. Just can’t predict a performance like Davis put in. The Pelicans held up strong and even when the Celtics took over, they hung in there in the 4th.

A much busier day in the NBA with 10 games to pick from.

Heat vs Bucks Betting Tips:

I think we’ve lost more this season on the Bucks than any other team so I almost feel like an idiot for going with this game but I’m taking Heat +4.5 regardless.

The Heat look to be missing Tyler Johnson I expect and that sucks but I think they have enough in the tank for this one. The Bucks got thumped by the Heat recently and while the Bucks had a bad performance in that game, I don’t know if they have what it takes here.

They aren’t really a ‘revenge’ type of team and the Heat have a good record against the Bucks.

I’m taking the points in this one with Heat +4.5.

Unfortunately I wrote the above tip and then I had to go to the dentist. Quite a few lines weren’t up so I thought I’d wait till I’m back to do the rest of the tips. But now I am woozy as all hell and came back and slept for a couple of hours and am a bit out of it.

Also want to get these tips up ASAP so just going to post them now with the one tip. Sorry about that!

The big game yesterday saw the Warriors run out 118-108 winners as they beat the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

That was a hell of a game and how about Curry with the dunk! The game fizzled out at the end unfortunately but it was a good one up until that.

We had Warriors -5.5 in that one and so won our bet there. Hope you all got on that one. Unfortunately the other two teams let us down which were the Spurs and the Pistons.

We move onto tonight, January 16th 2018. Quick note for anyone who likes to bet golf that my golf betting tips have returned for the 2018 year. We even had a small cash in the Sony Open to kickstart things so that was nice.

Alright only 4 games tonight.

Celtics vs Pelicans Betting Tips:

The Celtics are on another winning streak and are coming off a good little break so they should be refreshed and ready to put up 100+ points in this one.

That’s exactly what they will need against a team like the Pelicans. While the Pelicans are a solid road team they shouldn’t cause many problems to the Celtics here.

I think the Celtics might start a bit slow but will pick up as things go on and end up dominating down the stretch putting this game beyond reach there.

The Celtics have won 3 in a row against the Pelicans at home and I expect 4 in a row and for them to cover the spread tonight.

That’s the only pick today which is Celtics -4.5.
