Podcast Recap

SGPN website editor Ryan McKee (@TheRyanMcKee) and NBA handicapper Zach Broner (@NBAZachB) give their NBA picks for every game against-the-spread on Wednesday August 19. We’ve got the Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors (-11), Utah Jazz vs Denver Nuggets (-4), Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics (-4.5), and Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Clippers (-6.5).

The guys start by discussing the very weird loss by the Milwaukee Bucks to the Orlando Magic. Few people picked them to cover the double-digit spread. Then they go out and win the whole freaking game outright! Ryan definitely lost some money on that game. He kept doubling down on the Bucks in live betting as the odds tilted more in their favor.

In better news for Ryan and Zach, they both picked the Miami Heat to overtake the Indiana Pacers. We’ve been waiting for Playoffs-Jimmy-Butler and we got him! This Heat team is exciting, even if Duncan Robinson gets cold from three-point land.

Before breaking down Wednesday’s games, the guys give the locks, the dogs they like and a couple teasers. Spoiler alert! Gordon Hayward is down with an injury for four weeks, so Ryan and Zach both like Philadelphia 76ers to bounce back as the underdog. Ryan is bullish on the Clippers continuing their advantage over the Mavericks, while Zach makes a great cause to believe in the Nets plus 11 points over the Raptors.
