Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 12/31/21


Sports Bet Picks for 12/31/21

PHX (-4) at BOS (4)

Pick: Bet $10 PHX ML

Total: 215 (Lean Under – 208)

Predicted Score: PHX 108 – BOS 100

Notes: Time to rip the bandaid off. Boston has lost 3 games in a row and find themselves a sub .500 team.

Sure, you can argue that the Covid protocols and injuries have impacted them. But they have impacted every team.

The fact is, even with Tatum and Brown on the court, this Boston team is not very good. And the coaching change has not been enough this season to get them on track.

For Phoenix, they will be without Ayton today but they still have Chris Paul and Devin Booker.

Many moons ago, my wife and I traveled up to Boston for New Years and I got to see Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets shred my Boston Celtics at the Garden.

Well, fast forward 4 teams later and Paul will help do the same today.

$10 moneyline bet on the Suns.


CHI (-4.5) at IND (4.5)

Pick: Bet $10 ML CHI

Total: 222 (Lean Over – 234)

Predicted Score: CHI 120 – IND 114

Notes: The Bulls will continue to be without Lonzo Ball but that has not stopped them from winning 5 games in a row.

For Indy, I put my trust in them the other night against Charlotte and they failed me. They are one of the most mediocre teams in the league and now they are dealing with a bunch of injuries.

Chicago is the more talented team. They have the hot hand right now. And they beat this Indy team just last week.

So I think they do it again.

$10 moneyline bet on the Bulls.


NYK (-5.5) at OKC (5.5)

Pick: Bet $10 OKC ML

Total: 205.5 (Lean Over – 208)

Predicted Score: NYK 105 – OKC 103

Notes: My last few times betting the Thunder have not turned out well but third times a charm, right?

The Knicks have won 4 of 5 games but find themselves without Julius Randle tonight.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is listed as questionable for this game but he should play. It should be fun to watch him and Kemba try to outscore each other tonight.

I have the Knicks sneaking out a win here but its super close. So close that I will take a leap of faith on this Thunder team to steal the win.

$10 moneyline bet on the Thunder.



DAL (-1) at SAC (1)

Pick: Lean DAL

Total: 217.5 (Lean Over – 219)

Predicted Score: DAL 112 – SAC 107


MIA (-3.5) at HOU (3.5)

Pick: Lean MIA

Total: 217.5 (Lean Over – 222)

Predicted Score: MIA 115 – HOU 107


ATL (1) at CLE (-1)

Pick: Lean CLE

Total: 215.5 (Lean Over – 222)

Predicted Score: ATL 102 – CLE 120


LAC (7) at TOR (-7)

Pick: Lean LAC

Total: 210.5 (Lean Under – 210)

Predicted Score: LAC 106 – TOR 104


SAS (6) at MEM (-6)

Pick: Lean SAS

Total: 226 (Lean Under – 223)

Predicted Score: SAS 114 – MEM 109


MIN (11) at UTA (-11)

Pick: Lean MIN

Total: 221.5 (Lean Over – 226)

Predicted Score: MIN 110 – UTA 116


POR (5.5) at LAL (-5.5)

Pick: Lean POR

Total: 229.5 (Lean Under – 221)

Predicted Score: POR 113 – LAL 108



Sports Bet Picks for 12/31/21

New York Rangers (130) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-150)

Pick: Bet $10 New York

Notes: The Lightning are coming off an embarrassing loss yesterday against the Panthers and now head home to host the Rangers who are also coming off a loss to the Panthers.

Igor Shesterkin returned to that game. He was a but rusty but it was a great addition to the Rangers as they try to get back to their winning ways.

Tampa is dealing with some injuries and Covid protocol absences. So while its hard to see them losing two games in a row – they are a bit vulnerable here.

I’ll take a value shot here and bet $10 on the Rangers.



Edmonton Oilers (-150) at New Jersey Devils (130)

Pick: Lean Edmonton


Anaheim Ducks (158) at Vegas Golden Knights (-192)

Pick: Lean Anaheim


Washington Capitals (-145) at Detroit Red Wings (125)

Pick: Lean Washington
