NBA Picks and Predictions for December 21st

Dallas in Orlando is a good game to see and after last nights in Miami, it is worth a good look. The schedule is leaving something to be desired with the NBA gearing up for their Christmas Day five-peat.

NBA Betting Picks for Tuesday, December 21st:

Dallas Mavericks @ Orlando Magic – With the Dallas Mavericks rolling and beating very good home teams of late and not to mention last nights win at Miami, ending their 12 game win streak. The Mavs look poised to lament themselves atop the Western Conference and I cannot argue against them anymore. LeBron James had one of the worst first halves of his career and in spurts looked as if he was a Maverick. But rebounded in the second half to alleviate any concerns of tampering and shaving of the points, I say in jest. Orlando after witnessing their newly acquired team, look like the only player missing is Rashard Lewis and I feel they will regret it, they are thin upfront and must get Daniel Orton up and running to save some semblance of the season. Nevertheless, Dallas is the team to beat of late and matches up well against the disheveled team in Florida. Concurrently when facing Utah the Magic lost by 12 and the Mavs won by six.

New Jersey Nets @ Memphis Grizzlies – New Jersey can be mediocre at home, but continue to struggle on the road. New Jersey will finish with a much better record than last year, but that is due to stability in the ownership, arena being built and confidence in the coaching staff, all insufficient in previous years. Memphis is an underrated team and after signing their core long-term have the pieces in place to grow and succeed in trying to make a run at an illustrious playoff spot. With continued vision and a place for every player on their roster, they are beating up on the teams yet to find themselves and in their last five have beaten LAC, Portland and Charlotte. But in turn went to Texas and were proven not to show it nightly and continue to struggle on the road. The Grizz are thoroughly superior at the wing spots and will continue to be a problem for the Nets in this one. Vujacic is a nice piece for a veteran laced ballclub, but a rebuilding team, he will struggle and work too hard to get enough looks to make a significant impact.

Free Pick GRIZZLIES -6 at -105

Milwaukee Bucks @ Los Angeles Lakers – The loss of Brandon Jennings is alarming for Bucks fans and bettors, they were atrocious offensively and the fact of them facing a defensively tough at home Blazer squad was no help either. With Keyon Dooling and Earl Boykins being the only other point guards on the roster, this team needs any help they can get, both adequate veteran back up point guards at this time, but both do not offer half of the skill and affect that this team needs. Without Delfino and Maggette this team has no chance and even with them would be hard pressed for the win. The Lakers have been on the road and have run their winning streak to five games against the lowest common denominators in the NBA; the Bucks are classed in the same light. Returning home can only boost the Lakers in this one and they should have no issues in dissecting and stopping the Bucks.

Free Pick LAKERS -12 at -105

Can Philly dominate the frontcourt in Chicago with Noah and Gibson out? Thunder trying to rattle the Bobcats and Warriors can show that they’re a level above the low, when facing the Western Conference’s Kings.
