Los Angeles Clippers at New Orleans Pelicans.
Line: Pelicans by 5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 703-704)

The Pelicans have gotten a ton of acclaim for beating the Rockets in their first game, but Houston isn't elite anymore. The Clippers even beat the Rockets, yet no one batted an eye because the Pelicans did it first! Speaking of the Clippers, I like how they're playing in Doc Rivers' new system, and New Orleans may not be ready for it. The Pelicans are undefeated and are drawing plenty of tickets tonight, but I don't trust them to be fully focused following two blowout victories, especially after a long layoff. The sharps have been betting this down from +6.5. The line is now +5.5 in most places, but I'd rather sell half a point and take the +5 +100 available at 5Dimes.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

Washington Bullets at Portland Trailblazers.
Line: Trailblazers by 4.

10:00 PM ET (Game 513-514)

The Bullets - do not call them the Wizards - are 0-2 right now, even losing to a team resting its best player. The Trailblazers, conversely, are 2-0. And yet, I like the Bullets. Early results with a small sample size have caused an inflation of this point spread, and Washington is going to be far more motivated in this game, as the team attempts to avoid an 0-3 start. This line is +4.5 everywhere, but I'm going to sell half a point. The best line is +4 +101 at 5Dimes, which I'll round to +100 to make things easier to track.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Bullets +4 +100 (2 Units) - 5Dimes -- Correct; +$200

Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets.
Line: Warriors by 5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 705-706)

I'm going against the Warriors again, using the same reasoning I had a couple of days ago when they failed to cover at Utah. Elite, veteran teams often pace themselves early in the year, and there's no reason for Golden State to go all out like this, especially in a game in altitude. It's very difficult to play in Denver, and this means way more to the Nuggets. The best number I see is +4.5 -105 at Bovada.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Nuggets +5 (2 Units) - BetUS -- Correct; +$200



Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018 (1-0, +$200)


Boston Celtics at New York Knicks.
Line: Celtics by 9.

7:30 PM ET (Game 507-508)

Once again, elite professional teams don't go all out in the early portion of the season unless it's a big game. This is certainly not a big game for the Celtics, who are actually resting a starter. This means much more to the Knicks, who aren't that terrible this year. They should be able to stay within the number.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Knicks +9 -105 (2 Units) - Bovada -- Correct; +$200



Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 (2-0, +$400)


Boston Celtics at Toronto Raptors.
Line: Raptors by 3.

8:00 PM ET (Game 713-714)

The Celtics are a big-time public underdog tonight, which is music to my ears because I like the Raptors. The NBA is all about emotion and motivation, especially early in the season, and I think that benefits Toronto in this contest. This is a big statement game for the Raptors, as they want to prove that they should be favorites in the Eastern Conference. The best number I found is Toronto -3 -105 at Bookmaker.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Raptors -3 -105 (2 Units) - Bookmaker -- Correct; +$200


Golden State Warriors at Utah Jazz.
Line: Warriors by 3.

10:30 PM ET (Game 715-716)

This reminds me a lot of the NFL Week 2 matchup between the Patriots and Jaguars. New England was clearly the better team, yet was blown out in Jacksonville. Why? Well, elite teams tend to coast early in the season, so the Patriots didn't have their "A" game. Meanwhile, the Jaguars treated it like their Super Bowl. This is Utah's early-season NBA Final Game 7. Plus, it's difficult to play in Utah, which would explain why the Warriors have covered just thrice in their previous eight trips to play the Jazz. The sharps have been betting Utah, moving the line from +3 to +2.5, but BetUS still has +3 available.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Jazz +3 (2 Units) - BetUS -- Correct; +$200



Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018 (1-0, +$200)


Miami Heat at Washington Bullets.
Line: Bullets by 5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 713-714)

The Bullets - no, not the Wizards - are getting a huge chunk of public support tonight because Miami played last night and some starters will be out. However, everyone knows this, and the spread has been inflated as a result. I actually like Miami here, as the Bullets could be caught looking ahead to Saturday's big matchup versus the Raptors. This spread is +5.5 in most places, but 5Dimes has +5 +101 available (which I'll round to +100 here for simplicity.)

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Heat +5 +100 (2 Units) - 5Dimes -- Correct; +$200



Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 (1-0, +$200)


New Orleans Pelicans at Houston Rockets.
Line: Rockets by 7.5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 713-714)

People still perceive the Rockets to be one of the elite teams, but that's not the case anymore. They're going to take a step backward, yet most bettors don't realize that, as nearly 70 percent of the action is on Houston in this game. The Pelicans have made some nice additions recently, and they have Anthony Davis, whom Houston doesn't have an answer to. I could see New Orleans winning this game outright, but I'll take the +7.5 +100, available at Bookmaker.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: Pelicans +7.5 +100 (2 Units) - Bookmaker -- Correct; +$200



Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018 (0-1, -$210)


Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics.
Line: Celtics by 5.

8:00 PM ET (Game 501-502)

The NBA season begins tonight, and I love the 76ers. Everyone is down on them for some reason, but there's a good chance they're the best team in the Eastern Conference. Inexperience cost them in the second round of the playoffs last year, but they've been thinking about avenging their postseason loss to Boston in this contest ever since the schedule came out. The public is betting the Celtics at a 2:1 clip, but I think this spread is a couple of points too high. The best number is +5 -105 at Bovada.

I may post another pick later or add a unit to this game. If so, I'll tweet it out. I'll have updates on Twitter - @walterfootball.

NBA Pick: 76ers +5 -105 (2 Units) - Bovada -- Incorrect; -$210
