the Heat are 22-8-1 against the number in their last 31 games playing on zero rest. More importantly, this is D-Wade's last professional game in his hometown of Chicago. He will put on a show against a Chcago team with no offensive Identity. Heat Cover.
My Pick: Miami -3
Line has shaved a few points and Harden was off last night in record-setting fashion. ATS, Grizzlies are 1-6 in their last 7. I'm going with law of averages and saying Grizzlies cover tonight. Too many vets imo to not at least put up a fight and they're rested.
My Pick: Memphis +4.5

Wow, Cuse at +17! That's the biggest dog position they've been in since 1997-98! Zion was out the entire 2nd half against FSU with an injury. Cuse lost a game they should've won and will be motivated for this one.
My Pick: Syracuse +17

Money keeps rolling in on Indy. So I am switching my gears. While I thought originally this line was too high on the Chiefs and that Luck and Co. can compete in a shootout, I'm beginning to think, you shut down Ebron as a security blanket, keep a Safety overtop for Hilton and this Offense suddenly seems like the type that can't keep up with the headache that is one of Andy Reid's most fascinating creations in his illustrious career. It's been a heck of a ride for Indy this year and hats off but Andy Reid isn't messing around as he's been one-n-done'd way too many times in his career. KC covers and we go over in late 4th quarter on a meaningless TD from Indy. KC 33- 24.
My Pick: Kansas City -5 & Over 56

From numbers and emotional standpoints, I can't believe Vegas is giving this fading dynasty -4 here. But hell, you think Phillip Rivers and Co care?! There are few dogs I like more than a Phillip Rivers lead team. I've missed his fire in the playoffs since the early 2000s when he'd battle Manning and Brady. LA is 7-0 both straight up and against the spread in road games since the start of October despite the fact that they were favored in only 2 of those games! Derwin James is going to be a headache for Gronk and or Edelman & those blitz packages are going to terrorize Brady. One of the D Vets and Leaders just tragically lost his newborn child this past week. They will play inspired football and WIN STRAIGHT UP. If somehow they lose, it's not by anymore than a FG. Give me the best DOG in the fight!
My Pick: Los Angeles +4

Perhaps, and only because it's a pick em type of game. Even if they don't rest I feel comfortable with the Thunder based on talent, youth, rest.
In their last 11, Washington is 10-1 straight up as a favorite. When the total is 140-149.5, they're 5-2. I like the Huskies to get the win and cover on the road tonight.
My Pick: Washington -2
- 85 Agree
The Bucks are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a loss, 4-1 ATS in their last five home games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Utah is 1-6 ATS in the last 7 against teams with a winning record. I like where Utah is going and expect a close game but Bucks cover here. Pred. 114 -107.
My Pick: Milwaukee -5.5 & Over 222

Keep sleeping on the Nuggets, Bookmakers ! Harden is beat, Gordon is out and Denver has got to be the deepest team in the NBA now with Harris and Millsap back. I like Denver to even the series tonight and a momentary cooling down of this hot Rockets team.
My Pick: Denver +1.5

No Leonard, No Lowry, No Question Toronto struggles to find a groove against this D.
My Pick: Indiana -1
- 50 Agree
They lost back to back to lowly competition mostly because of a lack of focus. But they have beaten the then #1 team in Kansas earlier this year. The defense is horrendous for this Sun Devils Squad but in what feels to them like a must win, they have one of their best outings on D tonight. Neither team is even in the top 250 in the country in 3-point attempts or makes. I think ASU covers here and I'll feel comfortable hedging that bet with the Under.
My Pick: Arizona St. -7 & Under 148

Love the length of the Celtics perimeter D to settle this hot Spurs Guard Play. The C's came back from 17 down at the half on a 65-39 run to take the W against a great Grizzlies D on Saturday Night. I like the momentum going into this one against an inferior Spurs D.
My Pick: Boston -1.5

Harden has found his way and when he's in a groove the rest of the Offense can relax and take their shots. NO on the otherhand, is headed the opposite direction. While Brow is still killing each and every game, the moral since trade talk has diminished the passion of this team. He's as good as gone. I love this early line to move to -7 or so. Bookkeepers have lost their minds on this one.
My Pick: Houston -5
- 73 Agree
Drexel is 3-15-1 ATS in there last 18 Friday Games and the losing streak piles on in this one. I like Huskies to cover the -11. Line moved down from -13 which I probably would've steared away from but I like the -11 against a Drexel Team that has struggled without Transfer Zach Walton.
My Pick: Northeastern -11

Statement Game for a healthy GS squad that is angry after a blue (or rather purple) Christmas. Warriors cover the -9 easily and Portland forced to play catch up all night long leading to a heavy end score.
My Pick: Golden State -9 & Under 226.5
