New Orleans Hornets vs. L.A. Lakers Betting Picks

New Orleans Hornets vs. L.A. Lakers Picks and More

NBA Point Spread

By: Barrett Kazmerzack of Coopers Pick CALL NOW 1-888-730-COOP

With their Game 4 win the Hornets again took back home court advantage in this series and once again Chris Paul had a HUGE game. In Game 1 he led the Hornets to an upset win and he did the same in Game 4 going for a triple double (27 points, 15 assists, 13 rebounds). Kobe Bryant really struggled in the game going 5/18 from the floor and he was held scoreless in the first half. Another reason the Lakers lost Game 4 is that they did not use their size advantage in the paint and they were out-rebounded in the game (39-32).

In Game 4 New Orleans won 93-88 and they covered the spread with the total going Under.

It is interesting that the Hornets have won 2 games in this series since they were 0-4 against the Lakers in the regular season. This season the Lakers are 31-12 at home and the Hornets are 19-24 on the road.

This season the Lakers are 40-45-1 ATS and the Hornets are 42-42-2 ATS. The Hornets have covered the spread in 3 of the 4 games in this series.

In Game 4 the Hornets shot a legit 44.6% from the field and Paul did not do it all with the duo of Trevor Ariza and Carl Landry combining for 35 points. These guys may really have to step up in Game 5, as the Lakers will key on Paul and not let him have another monster game.

Kobe sprained his ankle in Game 4 and he will play in Game 5, but how will he play? That is not only a big question on offense, but on defense as well, as if he can shut down Paul the Lakers have a great chance to win.

Pau Gasol did have 16 points in Game 4, but he only had 4 rebounds. Ron Artest also had 16 points, but they all came in the first half.

Gasol, Andrew Bynum, and Lamar Odom, who really struggled in Game 4 going for 6 points on 1/7 shooting, have to get in the paint and use their size in the lane to score and win the battle of the boards. If they can do this and Kobe is his usual self the Lakers should easily win this game.

In the last few seasons in the playoffs the Lakers usually play better when they have a little adversity, which they have in this game since a loss will put them on the brink of elimination. Look for Zen Master Phil Jackson to come up with a great scheme on D like he did after the Lakers lost Game 1.

Betting Trends

The Hornets have covered the spread in 3 games in this series, but overall they are only 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in the Western Conference quarterfinals and in 7 of their last road games the total has gone Under 5 times.

The Lakers have only covered the spread 1 time in their last 6 home games, 3 of their last 11 games overall, and in their last 7 games the total has gone Over 5 times.

The Lakers have only covered the spread 2 times in their last 11 games facing the Hornets.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Portland Trailblazers Picks and Preview

Memphis Grizzlies (46-34) vs. Portland Trailblazers (47-33)

NBA Point Spread: OFF/ O/U OFF

By: Barrett Kazmerzack of Coopers Pick CALL NOW 1-888-730-COOP

Both the Grizzlies and Blazers will make the playoffs, but what is unsure is what seed they will be. Both would like to move up to avoid playing the defending champion Lakers or red-hot Spurs in the opening round of the playoffs. However, with the Lakers struggling they may fall to the 3rd seed, but with the Grizzlies in the 8th spot they want to avoid San Antonio, who have won 4 straight.

In their last games the Blazers beat the Lakers 93-86 on Friday night and the Grizzlies looked impressive in beating the New Orleans Hornets 111-89 on Saturday.

This season the Grizzlies have been one of the best betting teams in the NBA at 51-28-1 ATS and the Blazers have been decent at 42-35-3 ATS.

These teams have split the 2 games they have played this season.

This season the Blazers are 29-11 at home and the Grizzlies are 16-23 on the road. Both teams are hot, as Portland has won 2 in a row and is 7-3 in their last 10 games and Memphis has also won 2 straight and is 8-2 in their last 10 games.

Portland is playing solid defense, as in 4 of their last 5 games they have held opponents under 100 points. They have to win with their D, which ranks 6th in the league in opponents’ points allowed, as their offense only ranks 23rd in the league in scoring. Also, in the 5-game span the only game they lost is the one they allowed their opponent to crack the 100-point barrier.

Blazers F LaMarcus Aldridge (21.8 ppg 8.7 rpg) is key in this game, as he not only has to score, but hit the boards as well. This is especially the case if Portland’s leading rebounder Marcus Camby (10.3 rpg) can’t go, as he is day to day with a neck injury and has not played in 2 games in a row.

The Grizzlies’ D has to key on Aldridge and Blazers swingman Gerald Wallace (15.7 ppg), who has been playing well and in his last 2 games has combined to score 48 points and hit 6 of 12 of his 3-pointers.

Memphis PF Zach Randolph (20.1 ppg 12.3 rpg) has stepped up his play since the Griz lost Rudy Gay and the Blazers cannot allow him to have a big game in the paint. Portland has to play all-around D, as the Grizzlies have good inside scoring with Randolph and C Marc Gasol (11.7 ppg) and outside scoring with Mike Conley (13.8 ppg) and O.J. Mayo (11.2 ppg).

Conley and the Grizzlies have to hold onto the rock, as the Blazers are forcing an average of 15.7 turnovers per game and if Memphis is sloppy with the ball in this game they will get killed.

In some other betting trends for this important Western Conference match up:

Memphis is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games against teams with a home winning percentage of greater than 60%, and has an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

Portland is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and has an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 games.

Memphis is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games against Portland and in the last 5 games between these 2 teams the total has gone Over 4 times.

Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Pick and Preview

Denver Nuggets (48-30) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (52-26)

NBA Point Spread: OFF/ O/U OFF

By: Barrett Kazmerzack of Coopers Pick CALL NOW 1-888-730-COOP and ask for the FREE PICK

These 2 teams met on Tuesday with the Thunder snapping the Nuggets 6-game winning streak and that game was important to Oklahoma City winning their first game in Denver since they moved from Seattle. As is stands right now this game would be a preview of a first round playoff series. Even though the Thunder beat the Nuggets on Tuesday they would rather not play them in the post-season and for that to happen they will have to catch the Mavericks, who they only trail by 1 game for the 3rd spot in the Western Conference.

In their last games on Wednesday night the Nuggets beat the Dallas Mavericks 104-96 and the Thunder wrapped up the Northwest Division with a 112-108 win over the L.A. Clippers.

This season the Thunder are 29-10 at home and the Nuggets are 17-22 on the road. The Thunder have won 2 of 3 games against the Nuggets this season.

Denver has played great since trading away Carmelo Anthony, as their defense has been much better while they are still the highest scoring in the league. In their loss to the Thunder on Tuesday night C Nene and F Wilson Chandler only scored a combined 12 points on 5/19 shooting. These guys have to score for the Nuggets to win this game.

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are the big guns for the Thunder and if these guys have big scoring games the Thunder will likely win. In the win over the Clippers on Wednesday night this duo combined to score 55 points.

Denver has a few injury concerns in this game with G Arron Afflalo, C Chris Anderson, and C Timofey Mozgov all questionable for this game.

Thunder C Kendrick Perkins was a great pickup for the Thunder, as before they traded for him Oklahoma City had a weak interior defense. He had 14 boards in the win over the Nuggets earlier this week and Denver cannot allow him to dominate glass again.

In the win over the Nuggets the thunder held Denver to only 42.9% shooting from the floor, but in the win over the Clippers they allowed L.A. to shoot 50.6% from the floor and if they allow Denver to shoot like that their 2-game winning streak may end.

This season Denver is 41-33-4 ATS and Oklahoma City is 40-37-1 ATS. Denver has only covered the spread one time in their last 6 visits to Oklahoma City.

Denver is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 road games and has an Under record of 5-0-1 in their last 6 road games and Oklahoma City is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and has an Under record of 11-4 in their last 15 games.
