Tuesdays are considered a pretty boring day, but not anymore cause your BonaFide Sports Expert Robert Littal will be hitting you with his NBA Tuesday Night Double Play until the end of the regular season. One pick will be a traditional pick while the other with be an "upset" or "big money" pick. If you are a risk taker like me you will be sure to cash in on both:
"BIG MONEY PICK"
The Portland Trail Blazer +165 over the Houston Rockets.
Both teams are dealing with injuries, but the Trail Blazers are the younger team whereas The Rockets have a hard time putting together multiple consistent games with all their injuries. Brandon Roy is the perfect guard to take advantage of the smaller Rockets guards, so I see a straight up Blazers upset over the Rockets on the road:
The Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder 222 1/2
That high number is thrown out there because of Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant, but while The Lakers are very capable of of hitting 110 plus it has been rare that they have combined with any team to go over 222 especially a team as weak as the Thunder. So while Durant may get 50 the rest of his team will be hard press to match that amount.
Take the "Under" with a money line of -110.
