Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 12/15/21
NOP (-1.5) at OKC (1.5)
Pick: Bet $10 NOP ML
Total: 210.5 (Lean Over – 213)
Predicted Score: NOP 108 – OKC 105
Notes: Considering how bad New Orleans started, having as many wins as OKC does is kind of a testament of how they turned things around.
Or, you know, a testament to how shitting both teams are.
The Thunder are capable of beating the dregs of this league. Any other team though, they struggle to crack 100 points in a game.
New Orleans is coming off a loss to the Spurs where they failed to score 100 but still, recently they are averaging 10 more points per game than OKC is. The Pelicans are also shooting the ball much better than OKC and playing better defense.
It’s a road game and the Pelicans are only 4-12 on the road but I think they nab this one today.
$10 bet on New Orleans.
CHA (3.5) at SAS (-3.5)
Pick: Bet $10 SAS ML
Total: 228.5 (Lean Over – 232)
Predicted Score: CHA 114 – SAS 118
Notes: The Hornets continue to be without Lamelo Ball and without him, they are still competitive, but nowhere near as good. He is close to returning but reports are saying he is still out tonight.
They head to San Antonio where the Spurs are decent enough. San Antonio is pretty much what you describe as an average team. They fall into that category both defensively and offensively.
There’s just nothing special about them.
But I do think they can take down a Hornets team that is missing their best player and also a couple of other key players in Ish Smith and Mason Plumlee.
$10 bet on the Spurs.
MEM (1) at POR (-1)
Pick: Bet $10 MEM ML
Total: 219.5 (Lean Under – 206)
Predicted Score: MEM 108 – POR 98
Notes: I made money fading Portland yesterday and I will try to make money fading them again today.
The Blazers have lost 6 in a row and if the grumblings about Damian Lillard wanting to leave were not strong in the offseason, well then, get fucking ready for some major problems if Portland can’t right the ship soon.
Memphis continues to find ways to win games – even without Ja Morant. One issue is their road shooting is pretty terrible but they make up for it by being efficient in each possession.
Memphis is 5th in the league in offensive efficiency. Portland is the second worst in defensive efficiency.
I’ll take Memphis here. $10 bet on the Grizzlies.
MIA (5.5) at PHI (-5.5)
Pick: Lean MIA
Total: 208.5 (Lean Over – 209)
Predicted Score: MIA 104 – PHI 105
ATL (-7.5) at ORL (7.5)
Pick: Lean ORL
Total: 224.5 (Lean Under – 224)
Predicted Score: ATL 113 – ORL 111
HOU (10.5) at CLE (-10.5)
Pick: Lean HOU
Total: 221.5 (Lean Over – 222)
Predicted Score: HOU 108 – CLE 114
LAL (2.5) at DAL (-2.5)
Pick: Lean LAL
Total: 216 (Lean Under – 206)
Predicted Score: LAL 105 – DAL 101
IND (1) at MIL (-1)
Pick: Lean IND
Total: 217.5 (Lean Over – 221)
Predicted Score: IND 110 – MIL 111
MIN (4.5) at DEN (-4.5)
Pick: Lean DEN
Total: 217.5 (Lean Over – 223)
Predicted Score: MIN 109 – DEN 114
LAC (8.5) at UTA (-8.5)
Pick: Lean LAC
Total: 215.5 (Lean Over – 231)
Predicted Score: LAC 113 – UTA 118
WAS (1.5) at SAC (-1.5)
Pick: Lean SAC
Total: 225.5 (Lean Under – 224)
Predicted Score: WAS 111 – SAC 113
New York Rangers (-220) at Arizona Coyotes (180)
Pick: Bet $10 New York
Notes: The Rangers lost to the Avalanche yesterday. It was their second loss in a row and second loss to Colorado this past week. So they will be happy to head to Arizona today for a very winnable game.
The Rangers have been without their star goalie – Igor Shesterkin – so this makes the line somewhat bearable to be. It’s chalky, but not as chalky as it could be considering how bad Arizona is.
The Coyotes are mired in another losing streak and I fear it only continues today.
$10 bet on the Rangers.
Washington Capitals (-150) at Chicago Blackhawks (130)
Pick: Lean Washington
Seattle Kraken (130) at Anaheim Ducks (-150)
Pick: Lean Anaheim
