We got off to a rocky start in our NBA Predictions on Saturday, as we were only able to go 2-3 on the day. Monday brings in eight games on tap to choose from and I believe there are some great games to pick from.
Here are the Top 5 Locks of the Day for Monday, November 5th 2012:
MIAMI (2-1) over Phoenix (1-2)
The Phoenix Suns are coming off of a 115-94 loss yesterday at the hands of the Orlando Magic, after leading throughout most of the game, they fell apart in the second half, being outscored, 69-38.
Miami is rested after having a day off Sunday and should be able to control this game easily, 103-89.
BROOKLYN (1-0) over Minnesota (1-1)
After their opening game at home having been delayed by super storm Sandy, the Brooklyn Nets took down the Toronto Raptors on Saturday 107-100 in their new building. It was a huge win for a team in a new city, and luckily for them they don’t have go on the road until Wednesday night.
I like the Nets to keep it rolling for at least one more game, 98-92.
SAN ANTONIO (3-0) over Indiana (2-1)
The Spurs are once again one of the top teams in the Western Conference, even with three aging stars. San Antonio is 13-1 straight up over their last 14 games at home.
I think the Spurs get to 4-0 on the season after tonight, 105-98.
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS (2-1) over Cleveland (1-2)
I like Kyrie Irving a lot, but they are still too young to go on the road and beat an superior team.
No doubt the Clippers will bounce back after a ugly loss on Saturday against the Warriors. Clips take this one, 100-93.
Golden State (2-1) over SACRAMENTO (0-3)
Tyreke Evans and Derrick Cousins have both struggled early on this season. Cousins can’t seem to stay out of foul trouble and Evans is shooting a career low 38% from the field.
It should be a high scoring close game, as it always is with these two teams, but I’ll take the Warriors tonight, 108-105.
