We had another successful run with our NBA picks on Saturday, going 6-2 on the night and raising our season record to a stellar 184-86. With just one night below .500 on the year, we continue to guide NBA bettors successfully into the night. We aim high again for Sunday’s slate of games, a nice seven-game lineup with some juicy matchups.

Let’s briskly walk through each matchup and see who the logical winners are:

Bulls @ Heat

Chicago has oddly been much better on the road this year (10-3) than at home, so they should be mild favorites tonight in South Beach. Miami may have a slight edge with Joakim Noah out, but they’ve been impossibly mediocre and are tough to trust.

Pick: Bulls 105, Heat 102

Jazz @ Wizards

Utah can bring it offensively at times, but their defense is hopeless and they could even be without big man Derrick Favors tonight. That’s not great news as they head to D.C. against Washington’s deep rotation of bigs. Washington is tough at home, so they’re not likely to drop one to the Jazz here.

Pick: Wiz 107, Jazz 99

Warriors @ Pelicans

Golden State won an incredible 15th straight game on Saturday and while they could be a bit tired after their battle with the Mavs, it’s tough not to pick them against the pedestrian Pellies.

Pick: Warriors 109, Pelicans 102

Lakers @ Timberwolves

Kobe Bryant should pass Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list tonight, and it could taste even better with a win on the road. The Lakers even topped the Spurs recently and have quietly been respectable (4-6) over their last 10 contests. Minnesota is probably the worse team at this point and are severely undermanned, so we’ll take The Black Mamba’s crew tonight.

Pick: Lakers 111, T’Wolves 108

Suns @ Thunder

Phoenix can bring the offense against anyone, but in OKC against a Thunder squad that has won five straight, they’ll have their work cut out for them. Add in a four-game slide of their own, and it’s not looking great for them on the road tonight.

Pick: Thunder 104, Suns 103

Raptors @ Knicks

New York finally won a game in their last content, but they’ve been in a free fall for a while now. The Raptors are infinitely better, so even on the road they have to be the pick.

Pick: Raptors 109, Knicks 99

Spurs @ Nuggets

San Antonio has been slipping a bit lately against inferior teams, so it’d be nice if they can get back on track tonight in Denver. That should be doable, since the Nuggets don’t play any defense. As long as the Spurs have most of their stars playing, they look like the pick.

Pick: Spurs 103, Nuggets 96
