Pet project for WFDevTeam. No contest at the moment just a place to track your picks daily and perhaps we'll add more tools to break down a game and share any intersting information WFDevTeam can glean from the picks entered, random ESPN statistics, etc.
Spreads will be updated througout the day. For the purposes of this pick tracker the spread may move on you. Will work on trying to a) make them better and b) present spread movement in some capacity.
WFDevTeam actually picks every game but will only make a select few picks his official picks. Those are what will be listed below. You can follow WFDevTeam on Twitter. @wfdevteam
As a Sixers fan I'm rather frustrated that the rest of the Atlantic is playing so well. To have 10 wins and be sitting 4 in the division is simply annoying. I suspect that annoyance will continue here.
BOS is 15-3-1 ATS this season. I have said before I'll ride them until they lose me a couple. I didn't think Miami woudl be the team to end their 16 game win streak but Walt called it. Anyway I'm staying on board for at least one more game. Orlando is a goofy team that has chalked up some surprising Wins and covers (GS). So by no means is this a lock. But I think BOS bounces back here.
Come on....I mean come on...How much do you believe that win against GS means? Is it the arrival of OKC as a super team? I got to fade OKC here.
Even if that win is OKC arriving, by arriving I mean their big three have figured out their dynamic, they are still ripe for a let down game against a good opponent. Cue the 11-6 with- no-fanfare Detroit Pistons off a bad performance against CLE.
BTW I don't hate OKC and want them to figure it out. Would love it for another team to be some sort of viable threat to the machine that is GS, so I'm cheering on HOU, OKC, and BOS.
Two very good teams. I think the Pacers are underrated for having a lack of stars but Toronto has been playing very well recently...beating the likes of Houston and Was.
CJ Miles is questionable, he's a guy that does contribute and will effect the Raptors depth. Oladipo is probable. Feeling Toronto but can't make it official.
I have not done well in picking games involving either of these teams so will be laying off. MIN is 8-9-1 ATS which means to me the books have been setting the line on them correctly. MIA is 6-9-2 so a bit underrated by the line on the season.
The Heat lost to MIN at home back on 10/30 but that was without Whiteside. This feels like a matchup that is setup to go down as a split between two almost evenly matched teams. I do think MIN is a bit better overall but Miami is playing better as of late. Coming off a win against Boston.
NO is too dominate. PHX isn't as bad as we all thought they were but NO has quietly been getting better. I have had some bad luck with the Pelicans. Thought Toronto would cover against them was wrong. Adjusted and picked them against Denver and was wrong. Though not official picks was on the wrong side in their last two games as well. So going to lay off here...can't really make an official pick out of so much being wrong.
