NBA Predictions and Free Picks February 10th:
Philadelphia 76ers @ Toronto Raptors – The 76ers come into tonight’s game after dropping 119 points on the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves last night, while the Raptors have won 17 of their last 23 games overall. The Raptors have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA of late, climbing all the way to 5th spot in the Eastern Conference standings, while the 76ers have crept up a few spots in the standings themselves, as they now sit in 10th spot. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. Raptors are also 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games on 2 days rest. Look for the hot home squad to cover the spread tonight.
Free Pick – RAPTORS -6 at -110
Boston Celtics @ New Orleans Hornets – The Boston Celtics are one of the NBA’s only teams with a better record on the road than they have on home court. The Celtics are 15-9 at home, and 17-8 away from home. They will visit a New Orleans team that holds a home record of 16-8, but also a team that has lost their star player Chris Paul for some significant time. The Celtics are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games vs. the NBA Southwest, 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Hornets are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games, and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games vs. the NBA Atlantic. The favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the Hornets and Celtics. Take the strong road team tonight from New Orleans.
Free Pick – CELTICS -5 at -110
Los Angeles Lakers @ Utah Jazz – Two of the NBA’s best of the West collide in Utah tonight, as the 1st place Lakers will visit the 3rd place Jazz. The Lakers are riding a mini two-game win streak, and are 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Jazz have been one of the NBA’s best teams of late, currently riding a 9 game winning streak. The Lakers have been the Western Conference’s best team all season long, and they sit 6.5 games ahead of the 3rd place Jazz. The Lakers are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win. I like the NBA’s best to beat a 5-point spread tonight as a road underdog.
