Rissa’s Thursday Conviction Picks

An analysis of my favorite daily sports betting picks. It’ll be a mix of spreads, over/under, money line, and props bets varying from sport to sport.

Last night’s games were just bad all around going 0-3 on the picks. But when Tristan Thompson is making back-to-back three-pointers, then you know it’s a weird night. Tonight we look to get back on track with some NBA and NCAA action.

OKC @ NOP -3.5 (8pm EST)

O/U 234 

One NBA team that has been very profitable to bettors this season has been the Oklahoma City Thunder. They are 35-19-0 (64.8%) ATS this season and 20-5 ATS on the road. They have been one of the best teams to wage bets on the road with covering the spread in 12 straight games. I believe this trend will continue tonight as they have won all 3 match-ups vs the Pelicans this season. 
My Pick: OKC +3.5

Washington State @ UCLA -7.5 (11pm EST)

O/U 136.5

With March Madness soon approaching, it’s best to get to know some of these teams and do some betting before the big tournament. We start with this Pac-12 conference match-up. The Washington State Cougars are 7-24-1 ATS in their last 32 road games. While UCLA is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. Between both teams, the home team is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 meetings. Even though taking the points with the Cougars looks good, they have been struggling as of late by being outscored by at least 10 points on the road. I like UCLA to cover the spread.
My Pick: UCLA -7.5

Arizona St. @ Stanford -2.5 (11pm EST)

O/U 138.5

The Arizona State Sun Devils are looking to continue their hot streak of winning 5 of their last 6 games. On the opposite side, the Stanford Cardinals look to get back on track after losing 5 of their last 6 games. They look to be without their big rebounder in Oscar da Silva tonight as well. Even though Stanford is 10-4 ATS at home, I like that the Sun Devils have been playing better basketball on the road. 
My Pick: Arizona St. +2.5
