NBA Basketball Online Betting – Quick Picks For This Week’s Action

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/6/2014 9:56:32 PM

Sports betting players are settling into the NBA season after a busy period to get action back underway, but don’t expect the action to drop off; because of the abbreviated season, there will be lots of action to wager on each week, and here are some picks to make before the weekend ends.

Trailblazers Thunder Odds – Tuesday, 8:00 PM ET

Oklahoma City are favored by 4.5 points at home in this contest with their former Northwest rivals from when they were in Seattle, but the Thunder are only 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five at home against the Trailblazers, with four of the five games coming in under the posted total. The Thunder are coming off their first loss of the season as they fell in Dallas on Monday night, but don’t expect them to rest players as they’re off until Friday after this game. The home team should come away with a comfortable win as they bounce back from their loss, covering the spread in the process.

Betting Edge: Oklahoma City Thunder

Bulls Pistons Odds – Wednesday, 7:30 PM ET

This rivalry doesn’t have the shine that it once did as Detroit has gone downhill and will be the underdogs at home against the Bulls, who have won five in a row SU in the Motor City, along with a 3-2 ATS mark. The Pistons defeated Orlando on Monday night and this wraps up a three-game home stand for them, while the Bulls will be coming off a home game with Atlanta on Tuesday, but they’ll be rested for that game after blowing out Memphis by 40 points on Sunday night. Playing on the road won’t be an issue either, as Chicago played their first four games away from home. Chicago is the smart NBA betting play here, for both your SU and ATS picks.

Heat Hawks Odds – Thursday, 8:00 PM ET

Miami will be the favorites on the road in this game and quite honestly, it’ll be a rarity to find a game in which the Heat are underdogs this season; we’re willing to say that, barring injury, they’ll be favored in all of their home games and only slight underdogs against the top teams. In fact, Atlanta’s chances at home on Thursday night may be even worse as they beat the Heat on Monday on the road to give Miami their first loss of the season and even though no one expects a team to go through the regular season perfect, no one likes losing and everyone likes a chance at revenge. Miami is 3-2 SU and ATS in their last five trips to Atlanta, with three games going over the posted total. The Heat usually raise their game for national televised contests and this will be no exception, so go with Miami here by virtue of one of their patented monster runs in the second half that is fueled by their defense.

Mavericks Spurs Odds – Thursday, 8:30 PM ET

Even though it isn’t a part of the TNT doubleheader, this Texas rivalry is still worth watching and it’ll be interesting to see who will be the NBA betting favorite in this contest. Conventional wisdom says the Spurs at home, especially as they’re 4-1 and 3-1-1 ATS against Dallas in their last five at home (with four games falling under the posted total). But the Spurs also lost Manu Ginobili to a broken hand indefinitely and many don’t have faith in them because of their age; if the Spurs can manage a top-four seed in the Western Conference this season, it may be the best coaching job of Gregg Popovich’s career. Both teams also have very similar games to deal with before they meet on Thursday night as the Spurs host Golden State on Wednesday, while Dallas will have Phoenix at home that same night, so this game will come down to the second half when legs start to get heavy. While we’re skeptical on the Mavericks covering the spread on the road, take Dallas for an outright win in your online betting picks.
