NBA Free Pick | Thunder at Pacers
Joe is back in the saddle today, sitting in for Brad, and I’m bringing you a NBA pick to help pad your sports betting bankroll. I remember a month and a half ago, the Monday after Super Bowl, I was hungover with a feeling of sadness over me because football was over. Well let me tell you, those feelings are gone and I am psyched for the next couple months!

I hit the bong a little too hard this morning, but I promise I’ll get to today’s game and a pick, but before I do, I have to talk about how excited I am.
Coming very soon is March Madness and a little later Opening Week in the MLB. Not only is this great for the sports fan, but it’s even better for a sports bettor. March Madness offers round the clock entertainment and bettor opportunity. Pick an upset here and there, and you’ll easily end up in the black.
I love betting MLB in April. Both pitchers and the weather aren’t warmed up yet, and the bats are always ready to be swung. There is incredible value to be had. Then we have maybe the best of all the playoffs, the NHL, with the NBA playoffs to follow. The best part about this year’s NBA playoffs….No LeBron! Plus the Masters, NASCAR and some awesome MMA cards.
Don’t worry sports bettors, there’s never a dull moment. If you’re a bookie and you’re not using a Pay Per Head shop, you’re missing out on a boatload of action.
So….today. Neither the Thunder nor the Pacers have been at their best lately. Although the Thunder have won their last 2, before that, they lost 7 of 10, including a 4-game losing streak.
The Pacers are 5-5 in their last 10, but before that, they rode a 6-game winning streak. As well, 4 of their last 5 losses have come on the road. The Pacers have a great home record at 26-9 SU and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Indiana won’t run away with this one, but I feel very comfortable laying the -1, and taking the Pacers tonight.
NBA Free Pick: Pacers -1
