There are only two games in the Association tonight, and both are part of a TNT twin-bill. Our Free Pick of the Day is coming from Miami where the Heat will host the Rockets.
Houston are coming off a 136-118 win last night in Washington that saw them hit a record 26 3-pointers, extending their winning streak to 5 games in the process. The Beard had a game high 35 points, including 6 3-pointers. Harden also added 3 rebounds, 9 assists with 2 steals.
Center Clint Capela had a strong game as well, going 9 for 13 from the field for a total of 20 points, and hauled down a game high 12 rebounds (4 offensive, 8 defensive). It took the Rockets 55 attempts to hit their record number of 3’s (47.3%) and hitting 76.2% of their free throws.
The Heat return home tonight after completing a six game road trip, one that saw them go 4-2. Their last game was Sunday night in New Orleans, a game they won 102-96 on the strength of 58 points from the bench. D Wade was very efficient in his 23 minutes, chipping in with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists.
It’s been very close when these two play, with the Rockets holding a slight edge straight up at 6-4 in their last 10, with both the ATS and total records knotted up at 5-5. Looking at Houston’s recent record ATS, they are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5, while Miami is 5-1 ATS in their last 6.

As well, Miami is 7-2 SU in their last 9 against Houston at home and 4-2 ATS in their last 6 against the Rockets.
This will be a great start to the double-header tonight, and I expect Miami to bring their A-game, having had 4 days of rest and finally get home after a long road trip.
NBA Free Pick: Miami +3.5

Going against conventional wisdom almost worked last night, but in the end, it was another loss. I’m dipping back in the NBA tonight with a total wager on Rockets at Hawks. I’ve crushed all the numbers from my top games today, gave my magic eight ball a little rub, and here’s what I came up Read More…
Is it just me, or does everything seem off in the sports world lately? My awesome hippie friend Luna told me it’s because Mercury is in Retrograde, while my CNN watchin’, conspiracy theorist homie is blaming Trump. Whatever the reason…BE CAREFUL when placing your bets! Regardless, I have to give you guys a pick, so Read More…
