- Atlanta over Phoenix – The only trouble is that Phoenix brings energy and Atlanta may be resting players to save it. Hawks win though
- Charlotte over Miami – The fact the Hornets are favoured reflect poorly on Miami, not favourably on Charlotte. Gambling stay away?!
- Golden State over New Orleans – Well, Duh
- San Antonio over Oklahoma City – Can OKC use the bench and athleticism to grab a sorely needed win over a team they can beat. We think not but it will not be easy for the reigning champs.
- Sacramento over Minnesota – Another game I would not bet on. While the Kings deserve to be favoured here, there is no way in hell my hard earned money goes on them.
- LA Clippers over LA Lakers – CP3 is on the charge, and they should steamroll the Lakers here
