After you’re done checking out my double edition of the Sunday Parlay Pick, check out these NBA Picks that I have in store for you. They might not be as flashy or desirable to watch, but they still hold some epic value. 

Fade if you dare, because these NBA matchups are ripe for the taking. 

Sacramento Kings vs. Charlotte Bobcats 


Who says that you can’t find value in a couple of lottery teams? This is a money game. The Kings are only favored by -4 on the NBA odds board! Is that not value? Who cares if the Kings only have a 13-18 road ATS record? This is the Bobcats! They have lost 19 games in a row. They have a 9-21-1 ATS record at home. 

Enough stat dropping. The beauty of this game is that you don’t have to think about who is resting. Yes, both teams have some injuries, but both will be playing loose. The Bobcats know they basically have the number one lottery pick in the bag, while the Kings are looking to build for the future. Even if the Kings try to lose this game, they would still win by eight or nine points. 

The duo of Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins will be too much for the hapless Bobcats. The Kings do give up a ton of points, but the Bobcats can’t score and are in free fall. 

My Pick: Kings -4

 

Orlando Magic vs. Denver Nuggets 

 

You know what I don’t understand? Why the hell this total isn’t in the 220s. The Magic losing Dwight Howard leaves them with as much interior defense as a DII Women’s college team, while the Nuggets don’t speak a word of defense, while scoring more than any other team in the NBA.

Why this total is only at 203 points is beyond me. The fact that they both played Saturday will only bolster the lack of defense and the amount of three pointers chucked towards the rim. The Nuggets are still trying to steal the 6th seed out of the West. They are currently tied with the Mavs record-wise, and own the tiebreaker. The Mavs only have one game remaining, so the Nuggets could pad that lead with a win. 

With the emergence to Kenneth Faried and the play of Ty Lawson and Danillo Gallanari, the Nuggets have been scoring in huge amounts. Seeing as the Magic don’t have Dwight Howard, they have the three pointer as their only weapon. Orlando ranks 3rd in the NBA in three point shooting, making an average of ten per game at almost 38%. They take around 26 3’s per game, but tonight, I would be surprised if they shoot under 40. This game will look more like a track meet then a basketball game, with plenty of long balls and easy shots around the rim. 

My Pick: OVER 203 .5
