Max’s NBA Bet Picks for 1/1/21


LA Lakers at San Antonio

NBA Bet Picks for 1/1/21

Spread: LAL -7 (Bet Spurs)

Total: 230.5 (Lean Under)

Predicted Score: Lakers 113 – Spurs 110

Overview: These two teams met up 2 days ago and the Lakers got the better of the Spurs by 14 points. It was LeBron’s birthday and he wanted to prove his age means nothing. Only he re-tweaked his ankle and is once again listed as questionable for tonight’s game. San Antonio did make news by having the first female head coach after Pop got tossed in that game. It didn’t result in a win but hey, progress. I think San Antonio can keep this one a bit closer despite the fact that LeBron probably does end up playing. I’ll bet $25 on the Spurs.


Portland at Golden State

NBA Bet Picks for 1/1/21

Spread: POR -4 (Bet Blazers)

Total: 231 (Lean Under)

Predicted Score: Blazers 113 – Warriors 106

Overview: Don’t look now but the Warriors have won 2 in a row… against the Pistons and the Bulls. But hey, it’s something. Portland will look to shake off a bad loss to the Clippers by riding the hot hand of CJ McCollum – who is averaging 28 points per game. The Blazers have a well-balanced offense and some depth. That makes them dangerous because if one player is off, there are a few that can step up. The same cannot be said about Golden State as they live and die by Steph Curry.

Golden State’s defense is a huge liability right now and trying to guard this Blazers team should be a problem for them. I like Portland on the road to cover this one. Betting $25 on the Blazers.


Boston at Detroit

Spread: BOS -9 (Lean Celtics)

Total: 215.5 (Lean Over)

Predicted Score: Celtics 113 – Pistons 103


Miami at Dallas

Spread: DAL -1.5 (Lean Mavs)

Total: n/a

Predicted Score: Mavs 114 – Heat 107


Memphis at Charlotte

Spread: CHA -5 (Lean Grizzlies)

Predicted Score: Grizzlies 110 – Hornets 103


Atlanta at Brooklyn

Spread: BKN -6.5 (Lean Hawks)

Total: 245.5 (Lean Under)

Predicted Score: Hawks 117 – Nets 115


Washington at Minnesota

Spread: WAS -1 (Lean Timberwolves)

Total: n/a

Predicted Score: Timberwolves 116 – Wizards 113


Chicago at Milwaukee

Spread: MIL -14.5 (Lean Bucks)

Total: 231.5 (Lean Under)

Predicted Score: Bucks 121 – Bulls 103


LA Clippers at Utah
