NBA Picks February 22nd

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder 

Tipoff – 8:00 pm EST
Spread: Thunder -2.5
Total: 239.5

The top game on Thursday’s NBA slate has to be the Los Angeles Clippers traveling to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder. It looks like these two teams will continue to be a part of the season-long dogfight for the top seed in the Western Conference, so this game is critical. Plus, you’ve got the league’s fourth-best home team taking on the league’s fourth-best away team. I’ll lean to the home Thunder to cover the 2.5 points for us, and I’m also taking the Under – the total is about five points too high in my estimation.

Best Bet: Thunder -2.5 (-109); Clippers/Thunder Under 239.5 (-111)



Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Tipoff – 8:00 pm EST
Spread: Pelicans -7
Total: 227

These are two teams going in opposite directions. The Houston Rockets have lost five of their last six games, including losing by eight points to the lowly Memphis Grizzlies. The New Orleans Pelicans, on the other hand, have won seven of their last eight games. What is really sinking Houston is their record on the road, where they are a putrid 5-21. The Pelicans -7 is the play. No play on the total – it’s in the right range.

Best Bet: Pelicans -7 (-111)
