NBA Predictions and Free Picks December 18th:
Milwaukee Bucks @ Cleveland Cavaliers – The Milwaukee Bucks come into this game only 3 spots behind the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference standings, but the overall record are much different. The Bucks could improve to .500 tonight (12-12) with a win, while Cleveland is after their 20th of the season. Cleveland is an impressive 10-2 at home this season, but the Bucks are one of the more underrated teams in the NBA, going 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. I am leaning towards the Bucks to beat the double digit spread tonight in Cleveland.

Denver Nuggets @ New Orleans Hornets – The Denver Nuggets come into this game with a 10-2 within the Western Conference, and average over 100 points per game on the road. The 2nd ranked offense in the NBA averages 108 points per game for the Nuggets, while the Hornets only average about 98 points per game at home. Denver is currently on a 3 game winning streak, and are 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. I look for the high-powered Nuggets offense to take control tonight in New Orleans to cover the small spread.

Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics – The Celtics come into tonight’s action tied with the LA Lakers for the best record in the NBA (20-4). The Celtics are 8-3 at home this season, and 5-0 against the Atlantic Division. On the other side, the 76ers are 2-10 on the road this season, with a 3-2 record against divisional opponents. The 76ers hold the league’s 3rd worst record at 6-19, and are a measly 5-11 within the Eastern Conference. I like the Celtics tonight to beat up on a divisional opponent tonight in Boston.
