NBA Betting Predictions January 23rd
Not only did my Pacers beat the spread last night against the Lakers, but they won the game. Despite playing on the Lakers home turf they still managed to take care of business. As I’ve been saying since the start of the season, the Lakers have a terrible rhythym going and are going to lose more games than you think.
After last nights victory my season record to date now sits at (9-10) for -2.0 units.
Orlando Magic @ Boston Celtics
The Celtics are another team that I would place in a similar category as the Lakers. People will choose both teams a fair amount because of their former glory. But both teams have gotten a year older, and have not picked up any substantial new pieces to prevent their declines. Boston losing Jeff Green for the season really didn’t help their cause. The Celtics beat the Wizards last night, but they didn’t beat them by too much (6 points to be exact). To do so Paul Pierce had to have a huge game. The Celtics record is brutal so far, and while at this point the consensus is that they will still make the playoffs I’m not certain that will be the case. Orlando has been great so far this season and they will wreak havoc on them. Especially Dwight in the paint.
