NBA Basketball Betting – Looking At The Weekend NBA Action

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 2:32:17 AM
There are some really good values to be found this weekend in the NBA for one reason or another. See if these selections mesh with your thought process. They’re worth considering.

NBA Betting Overview

Online betting enthusiasts are always looking for the kinds of games that, over the course of a long and protracted NBA schedule, own a few characteristics that make them particularly attractive. There are always some games that stand out from the rest and make them worthy of a betting play. Here are three selections for the upcoming NBA weekend (Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20).

First, consider Saturday afternoon’s game in which Cleveland goes to Los Angeles to take on the Clippers. Oh, you might be wondering how or why the Clippers should ever be trusted with a bet. Well, in this game, motivation should run very high on the Clippers’ bench. Experts in the sports betting world are aware that Cleveland snapped its 26-game losing streak at home against the Clippers in February. Sure, March Madness betting is the main focus for American sports bettors right now, but it’s a good play to take the Clippers on a day when revenge will be a central theme for Blake Griffin and friends.

A second selection that’s worth making a play for is Saturday night’s game in which the Denver Nuggets travel to South Florida to take on the Miami Heat. Very simply, Miami – which has experienced a rollercoaster ride of a season – is now in one of its confident patches. The team was mentally and psychologically shaken after losing a string of close games to the New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, and Chicago Bulls – all at home – but after beating the Los Angeles Lakers last week, the Heat have gained renewed vigor and swagger. Miami crushed San Antonio this past Monday in a revenge-themed beatdown, so as Denver comes to American Airlines Arena, expect Miami to be ready to compete. The Heat are a work in progress, but as long as they’re confident, they become an exponentially better team. Since Miami’s in a good patch right now, it’s best to pick coach Erik Spoelstra’s club unless or until you know that the winds have become unfavorable on South Beach.

The final pick of the weekend is Sunday night’s game in Oklahoma City, as the homestanding Thunder welcome the Toronto Raptors to the South Central Plains. What’s occurring in Toronto isn’t hard to discern; it happens every March to at least a few NBA clubs. The Raptors are tanking. They’re playing for the draft pick. The fire has gone out of the eyes of Toronto’s players. The roster sees no hope of making the playoffs, so the subtle but real process of submitting to the NBA grind instead of pushing through it has, in essence, begun. There’s just no way that the Raptors are going to be able to summon up enough pride or energy to win a road game against a very good team with a committed young superstar (Kevin Durant) that’s trying to make a playoff push.

Picks: Clippers over Cavaliers (Saturday), Heat over Nuggets (Saturday), Thunder over Raptors (Sunday)
