Free NBA Picks For Today 8/5/2020
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
Grizzlies vs. Jazz—NBA pick is Utah Jazz -4. If Utah can keep ahead of the seventh seed, they can avoid the LA Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. They have pounded the Grizzlies in their past two meetings. Tough to back the Grizzlies as the team has lost three straight in their return and are no lock to get into the eight versus nine play in round. They come off a bad ten point loss at New Orleans. A drop in class for the Jazz after battling the Thunder and Lakers in back to back games. Play Utah -4.
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Washington Wizards NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
76ers vs. Wizards—NBA free pick is Washington Wizards +10.5. Cannot trust the 76ers away from home laying double digits. They have given up over 50% shooting in their return to play failing to cover each game as a six point favorite to the Pacers and a 7.5 favorite to the Spurs. No pressure on Washington as they are locked in the play in series and will score enough points to cover this big number. Play Washington +10.5.
Toronto Raptors vs. Orlando Magic NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
Raptors vs. Magic—NBA pick is Toronto Raptors -5. Toronto is looking like a team that is serious about playoff form. They are showing outstanding defense on the court. Raptors contest shots. Team has won and covered each game facing the Heat and Lakers. Orlando not a good shooting team and they have defended poorly in their three games back. Play Toronto -5.
Denver Nuggets vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
Nuggets vs. Spurs—Free pick is San Antonio Spurs +3. Spurs plenty motivated in this spot as the team is only a half game back of Portland for the ninth seed which gets you in the play in game. Denver has qualified for the playoffs and are dealing with injuries to Barton, Harris and Murray. Spurs have shot the ball well in the restart covering the spread in all three games. Play San Antonio +3.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. LA Lakers NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
Thunder vs. Lakers—MLB free pick is Oklahoma City Thunder +6. OKC has been great in this role as an underdog with a cover rate of 71.4%. Lakers have clinched best record in the Western conference and the goal is to stay healthy for the playoffs. Would rather take the points in this spot. Play Oklahoma City +6.
Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics NBA Pick Prediction 8/5/2020
Nets vs. Celtics—Free pick is Brooklyn Nets +9. Boston is playoff qualified and a team that has suffered through numerous injuries this season. Expect to see some limitations in minutes as the playoffs are near. Kemba Walker will not play for Boston. Nets are a scrappy bunch as they are playing for jobs in the NBA going hard to get noticed. Dangerous laying this many points this time of the season with playoff qualified teams with no home courts in play. Nets have covered their past two. Take Brooklyn +9.
