Time to get the picks in before my wife starts complaining about the food service in this joint.

Friday, Feb. 8:

Denver is slipping back into reality while 76ers have beefed up their arsenal. Philadelphia by 12

Wolves and Pelicans don't usually share the same environment. When they do, the Pelicans will need to fly away fast. Minnesota by 5

Saturday, Feb. 9:

Can Westbrook, George, and company offset the MVB (Most Valuable Beard)? Houston by 11

Sunday, Feb. 10:

Lakers shot better than 50% from outside the arc last night in Boston. It is not likely they will do this in Philadelphia. Philadelphia by 15 SLAM

Heat will try to warm up the usually cool weather in the Bay Area. It will take more than a space heater. Golden State by 9

Monday, Feb 11:

How will the Rockets fare against a bolstered Mavericks team? Houston by 8
