Two Free NBA Picks Wednesday

We've hit a bit of a rough patch with our Free NBA Playoff Picks, and we're a little confused as to why. We're hesistant to tinker with the system at the moment, because according to our calculations, the current formula should be producing winners at the 65-70 percent clip we have become accustomed to.

It is likely that this current string of bad luck is nothing more than that--bad luck. We've missed three covers by one point in the last week, and think the basketball will start bouncing our way again in a matter of time. Like right now.

Even with this mini-losing streak, our system shows two plays with solid value tonight, and we're going to continue to weather the storm with confidence that our system will prevail as it has so many times in the past.

Utah Jazz +7 over the Los Angeles Lakers
Detroit Pistons/Orlando Magic UNDER 187

Carlos Boozer and the Jazz should close the gap on Lamar Odom's Lakers, and if nothing else, keep it within seven. Out East, we expect a low scoring game, and plenty of that defense seen above by Rasheed Wallace on Hedo Turkoglu.

Good luck and let's get this thing back on track!
