Cavs Make it Five in a Row!

Another second round NBA playoff game, another victorious home team. With a 74-69 win by the Cavaliers over the Celtics, the home teams in the second round are now 21-1 straight up! More importantly, we've finally been picking some of those winners.

Thanks to LeBron James and the Cavs shooting all over Paul Pierce and the Celtics, Cleveland covered the -3 spread and knocked the Celtics to 0-6 overall on the road in the playoffs.

After a slow start to the playoffs, Our Free NBA Picks have now won five straight, and are 8-2 in the last 10. Slow start might be an understatement. We like to toot our own horns here, but we're also not trying to fool anyone--these picks were struggling. After hitting 67% in the regular season, we began the playoffs just 3-9. No, that's not a typo. Hopefully you stuck with us, as we've finally crawled back to .500 in the playoffs. The Free NBA Picks are finally back to where we except them to be, so tell your friends to come along for the ride!

Here's a record update for the Free NBA Picks this year:

Regular Season: 40-20... 67%
Playoffs: 11-11... 50% (finally heating up)
Overall: 51-31... 62%
