It’s time to tip off another great day of NBA betting action here at Cappers Info, and we are set to make our free basketball picks for some of the best games on the docket on Monday, 3/5/12.
NBA Matchup: Orlando Magic @ Toronto Raptors
Date: Monday, March 5th, 7:00 ET
Location: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
NBA Betting Odds: Orlando -6
NBA TV Schedule: NBA League Pass
The Magic really aren’t getting a lot of respect right now still, and it is driving us crazy. This is a team that is playing well and covering some games again, and the win over Milwaukee on Saturday was a big time triumph. Now that the schedule is easing up just a bit, continuing with these two road games at Toronto and Charlotte, there is no excuse. We know that the Raptors have been a solid ATS team this year, but they aren’t necessarily ready to really take down this Orlando squad more often than not.
NBA Pick: Orlando -6
NBA Matchup: Dallas Mavericks @ Oklahoma City Thunder
Date: Monday, March 5th, 8:00 ET
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma City, OK
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -7
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV
Oklahoma City is one of the best teams in the league, and we aren’t doubting any of that. We also aren’t doubting the fact that the Mavs really haven’t played all that well of late, and that’s why they have failed to cover five in a row. Still, Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry are trying to put this team on their backs, and if the veterans like Lamar Odom and Vince Carter can start to turn the corner just a bit, we might be seeing a Dallas resurgence just in time for the playoffs. Don’t be shocked if this one ends up being a lot closer than you would have originally thought.
NBA Pick: Dallas +7
