Justin's "Can't Lose" Christmas Picks
There is no better time to bounce back from an 0-2 betting night than on Christmas Day with NBA games. Santa has personally approved my picks and declared them to be “can’t lose.” By the end of Christmas, I will have turned that 0-2 into 5-2. So, without further ado, here are my Christmas mortal locks.
Miami Heat -4.5 (-110) Vs. New Orleans Pelicans
I love the Heat at home against the Pelicans. Last year the Heat were 29-7 at home while the Pelicans were 15-21 on the road. The Miami Heat will kick off the mortal locks and win this game. After losing to the Magic on Wednesday night, I trust Jimmy Butler and the Heat to cover -4.5 points.
Milwaukee Bucks -10 (-110) Vs. Golden State Warriors.
Although I do not like Giannis, the Golden State Warriors are just flat out not good. To make matters worse for the Warriors, Draymond Green will not be starting this Friday adding even more value to the Bucks -10.
Brooklyn Nets -3 Vs. Boston Celtics
The Nets are a legit contender for the top seed in the Eastern Conference behind Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. I believe they will continue to play at a high-level and win easily against the Celtics by 3 points or more.
Dallas Mavericks +6 (-115) Vs. LA Lakers
The Dallas Mavericks are more rested and younger than the Lakers and they might have the best player in the league. With Lebron playing limited minutes because of his injury and the lack of rest the whole team has experienced with a short offseason, I think the Mavs keep it close or possibly even pull out a win.
LA Clippers -2.5 (-110) Vs. Denver Nuggets
Although the LA Clippers are traveling to Denver, I like the Clippers in this matchup a lot. This is a revenge game for Kawhi and Paul George as their championship goals were cut short last year by the Denver Nuggets.
I cannot wait to sit and watch these games all day. With amazing matchups all day and amazing bets I am ready to go 5-0 and win some money! Happy Holidays!
