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 Thursday, 3/1/12.

NBA Matchup: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Orlando Magic
Date: Thursday, March 1st, 8:00 ET
Location: Amway Center, Orlando, FL
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -1
NBA TV Schedule: TNT

The Magic and Thunder started off their season on Christmas night in the Sooner State, and now, Kevin Durant and the crew are going to be heading back to Mickey Mouse’s house. Durant earned All-Star Game MVP in this building just a few days ago, and he is going to want to back that up with another great performance against the Magic. Oklahoma City seems to be just as hot in the second half of the year as it was going into the All-Star Break, and we tend to think that the Thunder just keep on rolling in the Sunshine State on Thursday night.

NBA Pick: Oklahoma City -1

NBA Matchup: Miami Heat @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Thursday, March 1st, 10:30 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: Miami -4.5
NBA TV Schedule: TNT

The Heat are only just starting off the second half of their season tonight, and they are going to hope to build upon this eight-game winning streak that they amassed going into the All-Star Break. This was a team that wasn’t afraid to go on the road, but this is a totally different trip on the West Coast than the one that stopped at a ton of iffy venues in the Eastern Conference in the middle of February. Portland started its second half of the year last night with a loss to Denver on the road, but back at home, we expect to see it play with a renewed sense of conference. This is a big spot for the Blazers, and they really need to get off to a good start over these next two weeks if they hope to have a reason to be buyers at the trade deadline.

NBA Pick: Portland +4.5
