Pick of the Night

Dallas Mavericks -3 at Philadelphia 76ers

The Scuttlebutt losing streak continues and I am getting desperate. The Mavs were favored by 3.5 a couple nights ago against the Wiz and only won by one point. This line looks nice for the Mavericks and I am hoping looks will not be deceiving. The Mavericks are one of the best teams in the strong West while the 76ers are still a weak team in the even weaker East. Dirk is an MVP candidate and Iverson is the only likely All Star on the Sixers, he shouldn’t be but I guess it is what the fans want. At this point I am begging you Mavericks to beat this spread.

Mavs over Sixers – Scuttlebutt Record – (13-18)
Last pick, Lakers +3.5 over Cavaliers, resulted in a loss with the Cavaliers winning the game 93-87.

Dallas Mavericks -4.5 at Washington Wizards

I really need a victory here as I have lost 5 picks in a row. Looking through all the NBA action tonight this looked like the most sure thing to bet on since the question, “Is Big Mac on roids?” Dallas is one of the top 5 teams in the NBA right now and should have no trouble beating the wandless Wizards by 5 or more. The Wizards are having all kinds of troubles this season, on and off the court. Antawn Jamison is a great player stuck in an awful situation. As good as he and his number are this season, he can not single handedly stay with Dirk and the Mavs.

Mavericks over Wizards – Scuttlebutt Record – (13-16)
Last pick, Pacers +6.5 over Heat, resulted in a loss with the Heat blowing out the Indiana 113-83.

Dallas Mavericks -2 at Oklahoma City Thunder

One of the brightest young stars in the league, Kevin Durant, gets the opportunity to showcase himself on national TV tonight.  The Mavericks are coming to town and the trio of Jeff Green, Russel Westbrook, and Kevin Durantula will prove they are all rising stars and a rising team.  The Thunder are playing great basketball and have a very tough test in the Mavericks tonight.  Dallas isn’t getting too many points but I have confidence in the home crowd and team.  Thunder will reign supreme tonight.

Thunder over Mavericks – Scuttlebutt – (8-8)
Last pick, Lakers -10 over Bulls, resulted in a loss with the Lakers only winning by 9, 96-87.
