NBA Predictions and Free Picks January 20th:
Indiana Pacers @ Orlando Magic – The Orlando Magic come into tonight’s game with one of the more impressive home record in the NBA, going 14-4 on homecourt this season, while the Pacers hold a road record of just 4-17. Indiana is playing on back to back nights, dropping a one-sided 113-83 tilt to the Miami Heat last night in Miami. The home team is 4-1-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two, and Orlando is 60-29-2 ATS in their last 91 games following a straight up loss. I like the home team to apply a thumping tonight in Orlando.
Free Pick – MAGIC -11.5 (-110)
Miami Heat @ Charlotte Bobcats – The Heat come into tonight’s action after thumping the Pacers 113-83 last night in Miami, but are in for a tough game tonight going on the road in a back-to-back situation. The Heat hold a respectable road record of 9-9, but the more impressive record is the Bobcat’s home record of 17-4. Ironically, one of the NBA’s worst road teams is one of the best home teams. Charlotte is 8-2 ATS vs. the Eastern Conference, and 4-1 ATS vs. the NBA Southeast. Miami is 1-4 ATS in the last 5 games against Charlotte, and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 in Charlotte. I like the Bobcats to keep on rolling tonight on home court.
Free Pick – BOBCATS -4 (-110)
Sacramento Kings @ Atlanta Hawks – When the youthful and exciting Sacramento Kings are in town you better be ready to play defense. The good news for Atlanta tonight is their offense is also very powerful, averaging around 107 points per game at home this season. The Kings average around 98 points per game on the road this season, but have only managed 3 road victories due to the fact they give up more than 104 points per game on the road. The OVER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two, and I like that trend to continue with a lot of points scored tonight in Atlanta.
Free Pick – OVER 205 total points (-110)
