Raptors vs. Bobcats NBA Odds Predictions

Senior Handicapper Matt Rivers of OffshoreInsiders.com has a free pick Friday is on the Charlotte Bobcats (+7) to Toronto.

Reasoning: It’s certainly tough to make a case in backing Paul Silas’ 3-26 squad, which has literally lost 16 games in a row but I am going to grab the touchdown here and take my chances.

I have faded Charlotte with the best of them recently because without DJ Augustin Michael Jordan’s team has been an absolute non-competitive disaster. Not that they’re any good right now and not having Gerald Henderson is bad but Augustin did just come back in that last game against Minnesota and that means that today’s visitors have a legitimate point guard. Is the former Texas star great? No he isn’t but he is an NBA player who should have the ball in his hands a decent amount of the time and after easing his way back with only 24 minutes in that last game in Minnesota I believe we’ll see Augustin a lot more tonight.

Toronto isn’t as bad as Charlotte but are they are still a poor 9-22 overall and certainly aren’t anything better than a bad team themselves. Andrea Bargnani has been out a little while now and the former top pick is hands down the Raptors’ most dangerous weapon. I don’t mind DeMar Derozan or Jose Calderon but those guys aren’t exactly anybody I am all that afraid of and in the end the Bobbies are still an NBA team, with Augustin at least, and it would not shock me if they stop the horrendous skid today north of the border.

I don’t recommend anybody actually sitting down and watching this game but one of the worst teams in the league laying such a number is never a bad play, period.

Top expert pick on this game: Charlotte

For more information: It’s now 13 of 20 winning days, a 20-11-1 overall run in which my teams have covered by an amazing 84 points (yes, that includes the losses) and the profit is a whopping 2.65 million stars to the good. It’s not every day that I come firing out of the shoot in the NBA but today isn’t every day. A 400,000* underdog on the pro hardwoods is going to bash that Crookie upside his head and atone for the late free throw loss yesterday with Oregon State. Click now to purchase
