Pick of the Day – Bulls @ Pacers
Chicago Bulls @ Indiana Pacers
Sunday, March 25th – 3:30 PM ET
While the Pacers surely destroyed the Heat last time I picked against them (Friday) I don’t think they have two in a row in them, especially against a pretty talented and tough Bulls squad. But Check it out as the Bulls go into Indiana to battle against the Pacers in an Eastern Conference showdown.
Bottom Line: A 20 peicing of the Heat on Friday? Yep. A second win in a row against an Eastern Power? Not a chance. There’s a reason the Pacers stink this season, and its not because they get lucky often. The Bulls are 3-1 in their last 4 road games, and something tells me the Pacers won’t be much of a speed bump in the Running of the Bulls.
The Sweet 16 treated me well, as I went 3-1 during Friday’s contests. The only game I missed was the Tar Heels/Trojan game, as Carolina barely pulled away at the end, USC just couldn’t get it done in the last minute and a half, making a very close game turn into a 10 point cover by the Heels. Honestly, i thought the game was covered easiliy, but sometimes that’s what happens in hoops. But Oregon won, and tried to lose their cover late, but pulled it out with two clutch “gambling man’s” free throws with a second left. Vanderbilt & Butler both covered easily against the big bad 1 and 2 seeds, but neither got the roll with their last shot. Tomorrow i expect North Carolina to cover the 3 point spread over Georgetown while the Oregon/Florday game is too tough for me to put my money on, though I do like the money line on Oregon, but I’m not risking it. In the NBA I actually like the spread on a couple games, though. I like Detroit (-5) over Milwaukee on the road. I’ll also take the Suns (-6.5) over the Kings in Sacramento. That leaves me with the chance at 4 possible wins tomorrow. Check it out!
