Mismatch Saturday in the NBA, no competitive games on paper to be played. But Utah visiting Milwaukee could get interesting. Back on track and no room for error, with three perfectly picked games last night all ending in blowouts, we press on and I am liking these games today, but as the cream rises, the spreads are getting tougher. Be advised and aware of these top teams average winning point totals, indifferent or otherwise.
NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, December 18th:
Philadelphia 76ers @ Orlando Magic – Orlando’s last win in five came by nine at Staples Center against the Clippers. The Magic should do well in this one, negating the impact of the lackluster defense exhibited throughout the losing streak. Philadelphia is 2-10 on the road and will be in tough at the Amway Center. The Sixers are 7-3 in their last ten and have found some semblance of themselves. Showed well against New Orleans in an 88-70 win on the 12th of December. ORL should prove throughout that they are still a top contender in the East and show their depth at all positions.

New York Knicks @ Cleveland Cavaliers – After getting pasted by the Heat and LeBron James, the Knicks will be much more apt to give a 48 minute effort and get the job done. This will show that New York is not good, not bad, but just right in the middle. They should be pleased, but nobody wants to lose any games. Cleveland’s leading score (Mo Williams at 15) is being outscored by the Knicks leader, by 12 points, that will be a big issue as they try to match up against Amare Stoudemire. The Knickerbockers are 10-4 on the road and were on an eight win streak before dropping two in a row to the upper echelon in the Eastern Conference, Boston and Miami respectively. The Cavaliers best game in their last five, was a five point loss against Chicago, so we are in small victories time for this Cleveland team that has lost its star.
Memphis Grizzlies @ San Antonio Spurs – I liked the Rockets in this spot last night and love the Spurs tonight. Grizzlies laid an egg and the shooting of the Rockets was spot on last night in garnishing off a superb 103-87 drubbing of the Grizz. So if Houston can win by sixteen the Spurs should be able to cover 11, right? Who would have thought at 25 games deep into the season that SA would be 22-3, yes that’s right! In these teams last ten games, it shows who they really are with Memphis at 5-5 and San Antonio rolling with a 9-1 record. After taking care of Denver and a team gathering moment in taking the charge to win the game for Manu Ginobli and the Spurs, who will stop this new looking offensively diverse Texan squad? I don’t love the number, but I will pull the trigger on the Spurs in hopes they can win big and show their class.
Denver and Portland are worth looks, both at home against lesser Western Conference teams.
