Last night was just another 2-3 shit show that nobody wants to be apart of. But whether we do good or terrible the night before, it doesn’t affect the greatness we gamble on tonight. It’s Wednesday so we’re getting wild with a few picks out of left field.
I got a couple wild picks to kick off our Wednesday. Now, I’ve always preached that every bet here is a winner. For wild pick Wednesday, all bets are off and there’s a chance some of these might not be untouchable locks. Don’t worry though, they are. The first official wild pick on this Wednesday comes from the the city of Portland. The Trail Blazers welcome the Bulls from Chicago and I like the Bulls +9.5. The Bulls have gotten a bad rap early but they can score it with some of the best. I like the over but I could see myself getting extra wild on Wednesday and might take the Bulls money line at +350. This second pick isn’t as wild but betting on the Pistons is something that is not advisable this year. I ate my words about the Lakers on Monday but tonight, Blake Griffin returns to Staples Center and puts on a show in his old arena. The Lakers got the big come from behind win so they are probably feeling a little satisfied now. Expect Blake to come in pissed off even if it isn’t against the Clippers. He’s just mad he doesn’t live in LA and the Lakers will have to face the wrath of him tonight. Pistons +1 to go with Bulls +9.5 for a couple WILD picks.
The next game we’re taking has to do with riding that hot hand of Harden. James Harden right now might be the best player in the NBA. I feel like Giannis has been the guy this season and there was a side conversation where everyone agreed it was his year but James Harden just doesn’t give a fuck. Why would he? Guy has been spitting fire all over the place and tonight he really solidifies himself against Giannis and the Bucks. Rockets at home against the Bucks and they are +1.5. Love this cause I know that Harden knows they aren’t the favorites tonight. He’ll take that personally and the Rockets will come out flying. Last wild pick tonight is a team we haven’t taken all year, a clear cut sign that these picks are truly wild. The Brooklyn Nets host the Atlanta Hawks and for the first time we’ll be betting on the Hawks at +9. They had a big game last night and even though there is usually a drop off I think they’ll be able to hang with the Nets. Jarret Allen will probably win Most Improved this year at the NBA awards (huge deal, lol), but Trae Young still has a case for Rookie of the Year if he can turn it on and hit a game winner or two. I didn’t really mean that, Luka will for sure be the ROY but for the case of betting on the Hawks, that’s what I’m going with.
Recap: Bulls +9.5, Pistons +1, Rockets +1.5, Hawks +9.5. All dogs tonight in a wild NBA slate and for college we’ll go with Kansas -6, Vermont -12.5. Vermont basketball? Must be a Wild Pick Wednesday. Good luck getting that balance looking green.
