NBA Basketball January Picks

I will use this post to put up any picks I make in the NBA over the course of the next month. Due to time constraints (especially when I get back to work), I won't always have time to post full previews for games or even my reason behind my selections.

I will try and make it clearer in the 'My Picks' section to show which day I am picking teams, especially considering the short season means teams will have plenty of games going on.

January 11th
LA Lakers @ Utah Jazz Pick and Preview (http://goonersguide.com/football-pick-12944-LA-Lakers-at-Utah-Jazz.htm)

Orlando Magic @ Portland Trail Blazers Pick and Preview (http://goonersguide.com/football-pick-12945-Orlando-Magic-at-Portland.htm)

January 18th
San Antonio Spurs @ Orlando Magic Pick: I like the Orlando Magic to cover the spread tonight for the following reasons:


First, I have no idea how San Antonio will be able to raise their game after blowing a huge first half lead against the Miami Heat last night and getting demolished in the second half.


Second, the Spurs have been struggling in the road going back to last season and they are 1-11 against the spread in their last 12 games on the road.


Third, San Antonio are just 2-7 against the spread in their last 9 games on the back end of back to back nights play. Add the emotional downer they are likely to be on, and this could be extended tonight.


Fourth, Orlando are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games at home against the visiting Spurs.


Portland Trail Blazers @ Atlanta Hawks Pick: I am also going to back the Atlanta Hawks to cover the spread in their game tonight for the following reasons:


First, Atlanta have actually won their last 3 home games against the Portland Trail Blazers and the spread looks small enough that a win should enable them to cover again (famous last words?)


Second, Portland have struggled on the road compared to at the Rose Garden, and they are just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 road games.


Third, the Hawks are 11-2 straight up in their last 13 games as the favourite.
