Nover’s View: Thunder-Spurs Free Wednesday Play

On March 16, 2022, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Thunder plus 13 1/2 at Spurs I understand the rebuilding, inexperienced Thunder have the fourth-worst record in the NBA at 20-48. But they also have the second best point spread mark in the league covering 61 percent of their games. Gregg Popovich is a nice story for the Spurs. But Popovich’s career wins can’t hide […]

Nover’s View: Cavaliers-76ers Free Friday Play

On March 4, 2022, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Cavaliers plus 7 1/2 at 76ers  I’m going to buy low here on the Cavaliers, arguably the most improved team in the NBA.  Cleveland has dropped two in a row with the latter being a dreadful, 119-98, home loss to the Hornets two days ago. Cavaliers coach J.B. Bickerstaff was so frustrated he got ejected for […]

Nover’s View: Don’t Sleep on the Heat

On February 24, 2022, in NBA, by Stephen

The Miami Heat come out of the All-Star break 38-21. That’s tied with the Bulls for the best record in the Eastern Conference. Yet there are three teams with shorter odds than the Heat to win the Eastern Conference, according to current numbers at the Westgate. The Nets are plus $2.75. The Bucks and 76ers […]

Nover’s View: Bulls-Cavaliers Free Wednesday Play

On December 8, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Cavaliers minus 3 hosting Bulls  The Bulls and Cavaliers have been two of the major success stories at the quarter mark of this NBA season. Chicago leads the Central Division at 17-8. Cleveland has the second-best spread mark in the NBA behind only Golden State at 18-7 ATS.  So why get involved with a side in […]

Nover’s View: Hornets-Magic Free Play

On October 27, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Hornets minus 5 1/2 at Magic  This point spread doesn’t reflect the disparity between these two teams, nor fully takes into account the situation of this matchup. Charlotte is out of the gate fast, looking like a much improved team with underrated depth. Only an overtime loss to the Celtics two days ago has kept […]

Nover’s View: Celtics-Knicks Free Wednesday Play

On October 20, 2021, in Free Picks, NBA, by Stephen

Celtics at Knicks Under 216 1/2 This should be an intense opening game between two long-time division rivals. Tom Thibodeau transformed the Knicks into being the top defensive team in the NBA last season. New York gave up a league-low 104.7 points a game. There’s a good chance center Mitchell Robinson will be healthy enough […]
