Bookie Picks 12/21/10
Hey All – Its the “retired bookie” coming at ya. BTB and I go way back. He actually started his gambling thru me so I had a bunch of years of profitability from him until he learned a thing or two. Now we remain good friends and he has asked me to give a couple picks daily so I will be doing it right here in the blog for now. My write-ups will be thoughts, analytics for some content but the picks go much deeper and I cant write all that much. So excuse the grammar problems and any of that nonsense and lets just win… I will re-post this opening paragraph along with my record each day!
@8:00 Louisville (6-6) vs Southern Mississippi (8-4)
The Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles are flying high in to this match-up winning 7 of their last 10 and 3 of their last 4 games. In those last 4 games, the Golden Eagles have scored 186 points with their average margin of victory 15 points in their last 3 wins. Overall, the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles have increased their average offensive production from scoring 37.6 points per contest to 46.7 points in their last 3 encounters.
The Louisville Cardinals are 2 and 2 in their last 4 games, but they will face a Golden Eagle defense which has allowed 39.3 points per contest. On the flip side, the Cardinal defense has never faced such a potent offense like Southern Mississippi.
Pick: Southern Mississippi +3.5
@7:00 Oklahoma City (19-9) at Charlotte (9-17)
After winning their previous 5 games versus Minnesota, New Orleans, Cleveland, Houston and Sacramento, the Oklahoma City Thunder lost to a short handed, determined Phoenix Suns team while hosting them on Sunday night. Overall, the Thunder have won 8 out of their last 10 and have been playing solid on the defense end lately. Offensively, Oklahoma City has picked it up as of late scoring 106.4 points per game and shooting 50.3% from the floor in the last 5 match-ups.
Going into this game, the Charlotte Bobcats are only 3 and 7 in the last 10 contests. More importantly, in their last 5 encounters they are averaging 83 points from their seasonal average of 92.8.
Pick: Oklahoma City -5
