SGG PICKS OF THE DAY, NOV. 12

Nathan Hursh

Cincinnati -23.5 at South Florida (-108, FD)
Over the past three weeks, Cincinnati has not looked all that impressive in wins against way lesser competition. Again tonight, they get to face a dud in 2-7 South Florida. We are at the point of the year where playoff hopefuls need to shine. They need impressive wins. If a playoff hopeful is playing a crappy team, they need to blow them out of the water. Another squeaky win from Cincinnati against an inferior opponent may further damper their playoff chances. Tonight, they need to win huge. I believe they will, even on the road. I like Cincy by at least 2..

Draft Kings NBA Promotion

NBA Money Line Parlay: Brooklyn (-360) at New Orleans, Portland (-250) at Houston. Total parlay: -127 (FD)
This one is easy money. Both of these picks are on the road, yes. That said, the Pelicans are horrible at 1-11. The Rockets are also an awful team at 1-10. The only thing that may be keeping me away from this parlay is the fact that one of these awful teams is due. I don’t see it though. Both Brooklyn and Portland are too good to lose a game like this. They will take care of business against these D2 NBA teams for a stress-free parlay victory.

Milwaukee Bucks -2 at Boston Celtics (-108, FD)
In this game, I am taking yet another road favorite. We’ll see how this works out for me. When it comes down to it, Milwaukee is simply better than Boston. Giannis will eat. Keep an eye out though as he is listed as probable. Jaylen Brown is out which also helps the Bucks. If Giannis plays, and he most likely will, the Bucks will take care of business. Defensively, they will shut down Boston and score just enough to win comfortably. Once again though, if Giannis is out, ABORT ABORT.
