Wednesday NBA picks and predictions transcribed from the Feb. 8 episode of Action'sBUCKETS podcast — new episodes every weekday!

Note: All lines as of recording.


Sixers +4.5

Jay Money: I'm rocking with some of these underdogs right before the All-Star Break.

The Sixers are coming off a national TV loss to the Knicks, and the Celtics are at the top of the East, so this is a motivational spot — Joel Embiid is questionable, but I expect him to show out in this one.

This is a revenge spot as well: When these two teams faced off earlier this season, the Sixers lost 126-117 in Boston. But they were in the game — they just weren't ready to mesh. Now the Sixers are balling, going 8-2 straight up over their last 10.

Finally, the Celtics are only 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 while the Sixers are 11-6 straight-up coming off a loss.

Warriors-Blazers Over 234.5

Sean Little: Both of these squads are playing ball to the over: The Warriors are 20-6-1 to the over on the road while the Blazers are 15-10 to the over at home.

The Blazers have been absolutely cooking — they're second in the league in Offensive Rating over the last 10 games — but they've also been getting torched on the other side of the ball with a -1.7 Net Rating.



Blazers First Half -1.5

Jay MoneyThis correlates with Sean's over — no one is going to like the Blazers here, but with Damian Lillard cooking and no Steph Curry, I like Portland early in this one.
