Jan 2nd 2021 — Cooling Off

Joel Embiid once said “Trust the Process” and that is exactly what I am going to do. We started the year HOT going 13–3 over the first 5 days of the NBA season, then I started to get cute and try to stretch what the model was predicting. Since then, I have gone 9–11, not ideal if you want to make a name for yourself in this world. So, like Joel said, I am going to trust my process go back to what made us so good in the beginning and not get cute with it.

Now the picks.

Kings +4.5

The 2021 NBA season has been known for a few revenge games, including when teams play each other back-to-back. Like the Heat who got blown out by 47 points against the Bucks, and then came back the next night and won by 11. I expect this Kings team to come out of the gate hot and never look back, especially when they have a 9–0 record ATS when facing teams that average more than 15 turnovers a game like the Rockets are currently doing.

My model has Sacramento -2

Cleveland +6

I love what Cleveland is doing with their team right now, have 2 guards that can dominate a game, with a centre that gets all the rebounds. Andre Drummond is the X-factor in this game, if he can slow down John Collins and steal some boards away from Clint Capela, then the Cavs should stay within striking distance the whole time. But if they take advantage of his poor perimeter defence, and use him in the pick and roll against Trae Young, I am a little worried. However, Trae isn’t a great defender himself and Clint has the same limitations are Drummond, if not more.

My model has Hawks -5
