Guys & Bets (Episode 223): Four NBA Picks, Plus Serie A and El Clásico Picks

Today on Guys & Bets, Joe Osborne and Andrew Avery get you set for a full slate of games in the NBA, plus some soccer picks with Sampdoria hosting Juventus and another edition of El Clásico as Barcelona hosts Real Madrid.

Joe starts in the Association as the Guys & Bets’ darlings, the Memphis Grizzlies, take their show on the road to square off with the Oklahoma City Thunder. With the return of Ja Morant, the Grizz are getting things on track having won four of their last five, including a 118-111 win at home against the Miami Heat.

Joe is staying with the NBA for his next pick. The Charlotte Hornets are fresh off a win against the Sacramento Kings, spoiling the return of De’Aaron Fox. The Hornets now travel to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers. Rookie Devonte’ Graham has cooled off in his last couple of games, but facing a Cavaliers squad that has allowed the third-most points per game in the Eastern Conference could be just what he needs to get back on track.

Joe’s final pick is a trend that’s been profitable for bettors so far this season as the Chicago Bulls are in Washington to take on the Wizards. It’s the second of a four-game road trip for the Bulls before they hit the Christmas break. Washington had dropped four straight games before a win over the Pistons on Monday night.

Ninja starts off with his lone NBA pick of the show as the Toronto Raptors are in Motown to face the Detroit Pistons. The Raptors are starting to get healthy after fighting through some injuries to key players. They are looking to keep pace with the other top teams in the Eastern Conference and a game like this is one they shouldn’t let slip away.

With some quality matches on the pitch today, Ninja’s first of two soccer picks is in Serie A. Juventus sits tied for top spot with Inter, each with 39 points. The Cristiano Ronaldo-led squad matches up with Sampdoria and Ninja likes a bet on goals for this one.

The final pick on the show today is one that features two of the biggest soccer clubs, Barcelona vs Real Madrid. What more needs to be said about this matchup? See what side Ninja is going with in this battle of footy heavyweights.
