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 Wednesday, 2/1/12.
NBA Matchup: Washington Wizards @ Orlando Magic
Date: Wednesday, February 1st, 7:00 ET
Location: Amway Center, Orlando, FL
NBA Betting Odds: Orlando -9.5
NBA TV Schedule: Comcast Sports, Sun Sports
Oh oddsmakers, when will you learn… Sure, we know that the Wizards are as bad as could be, but in the end, the Magic are an overrated train wreck. Dwight Howard wants out of town, Jameer Nelson is still concussed, Jason Richardson is a million years old, and the team in general is just a nightmare. Orlando has nothing going offensively, and once Howard gets into foul trouble, the team just looks lost trying to accomplish much of anything. Washington isn’t a great team, but all that it likely has to do in this one to stay inside the number is score about 75 points or so, because we just don’t see the Magic approaching 90 in this one, or all that often in the near future either.
NBA Pick: Washington +9.5
NBA Matchup: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Dallas Mavericks
Date: Wednesday, February 1st, 8:00 ET
Location: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
NBA Betting Odds: Dallas -1.5
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN
The rematch of the Western Conference Finals from last year should once again be thrilling. The Mavs are back on track, but the Thunder are legit. They are coming off of a bad loss in Tinseltown, but whereas LA was the team that had to do some proving two nights ago, OKC is the team that has revenge on its mind right now. Don’t be shocked if the Thunder come into Big D and put a real hurt on the Mavericks.
NBA Pick: Oklahoma City +1.5
