Nets Ready To Turn Things Around, While Other Teams Are Better Off Tanking

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/28/2014 8:51:35 PM

The tension finally reached a boiling point in Brooklyn earlier this week, leading to both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett sounding off about the Nets’ struggles to this point in the season. With the March Madness betting right around the corner, now is the time for the real contenders to separate themselves from the pretenders around the NBA, and it’s in the best interest for some teams to accept that they don’t have what it takes.

Brooklyn Nets @ Milwaukee Bucks

Saturday, 8:30 PM ET

Milwaukee is one of those teams that will benefit from tanking in the Eastern Conference, where they are the frontrunners for the first-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. The Bucks are starting over, but Brooklyn is in a much different position after trading for Pierce, Garnett, and Jason Terry in the offseason. The Nets have a veteran roster that seemed built to win now, but they have been far too lazy this season, and it has cost them in terms of consistency. A trip to Milwaukee should help as Brooklyn looks to climb back in to the top-six, where it can avoid a potential first-round playoff match up against either the Indiana Pacers or two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat. The Nets have a lot of work to do, but perhaps this is where they finally turn things around.

NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn Nets – 5.5

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Memphis Grizzlies

Saturday, 9:00 PM ET

The Cavaliers believe they are an online betting team that can win now, and they have shown some life of late with wins in seven of their last 10, including an impressive win on the road against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Beating the best in the west on the road had to provide a confidence boost, but Cleveland has to be wary of a tough test in Memphis. The Grizzlies have underachieved this season, but they have played well at home, and are right outside the top-eight in the Western Conference. Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao have played well, but they will be tested up front by Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, and that mismatch will be the difference in this one.

NBA Betting Pick: Memphis Grizzlies – 4.5

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Sacramento Kings

Saturday, 10:00 PM ET

Right now it’s the Timberwolves in the 10th position in the West, but they are five games back of the Phoenix Suns for eighth, and it’s unlikely they will be able to catch them. The problem is that Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and company want to win now. Minnesota has been awful on the road, and while they aren’t in line to tank, this sports betting team has been far too inconsistent. Still, the Kings haven’t been much better regardless of where they have played, especially since the Rudy Gay trade. That opens the window for the Timberwolves to steal a rare road win, even if making a push towards that eighth spot ends up hurting them overall in the long run.

NBA Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves – 1.5
