NBA Predictions and Free Picks December 9th:
New Orleans Hornets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves:
Spread: MIN – 3 (-110)
The New Orleans Hornets travel into Minnesota tonight to take on a Timberwolves team that has only 3 wins to its credit thus far this season. However, the T-Wolves played a good road game in Toronto, making it tough on the Raptors in what should have been an easy win for the home team. The Hornets have beaten the Timberwolves 5 out of the last 6 times in Minnesota, and 10 of the last 13 overall against the Timberwolves. The Hornets won last night at home, and I like them as a road underdog tonight.
Free Pick – New Orleans +3 (-110) – bet it at Bodog.com
Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Houston Rockets:
Spread: CLE -3 (-115)
The Cleveland Cavaliers come into this one after dropping a 2-point decision last night to the Memphis Grizzlies. However, the Cavs have still won 12 of their last 15 games overall, and are 7-4 on the road this season. In their only meeting last season, the Rockets held Lebron James to 0 assists, the only time in his career that has happened. The Rockets are 44-12 all-time at home against the Cavaliers, but the Cavaliers are 5-1 against Western Conference opponents this season. I look for Lebron and company to come out strong tonight in a high-scoring affair in Houston.
Free Pick – CLE -3 (-115) – Bet it at Bodog.com
Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers:
Spread: LA Lakers -10.5
The Los Angeles Lakers come into tonight’s game having beat the Jazz 12 straight times at the Staples Centre. However, the Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 as an underdog. Both of the these teams had nights off last night, which should produce a lot of offense in what should be the best game of the night. The Jazz rallied to beat the Spurs two nights ago, which leads me to believe they are able to beat the 10.5 point spread tonight in LA.
