NBA Betting – Tips And Trends For The Weekend

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/5/2014 2:06:33 AM

A lot of sports betting players are focusing on football right now as it heads down the stretch, but there are a few matchups on the hardwood that NBA betting players should be looking at over the weekend, and here are the top five to keep an eye on before heading to your online sportsbook.

Mavericks Hawks Betting – Saturday, 8:00 PM ET

The Hawks should be the NBA betting favorites at home, although it won’t be by much as they’re only 3-3 at Philips Arena while the Mavericks are a stellar 3-1 on the road. The Hawks are also a miserable 0-6 ATS at home this season, while Dallas is 3-1 ATS away from home. Dallas is 3-2 SU in their last five trips to Atlanta, but 2-3 ATS, and three of the games have gone over the posted total. The Hawks may also have a slight betting edge as the Mavericks have a home game against a high-tempo Chicago team on Friday night, then they have to fly to Atlanta, where the Hawks have probably been since a win in Indiana on Tuesday.

Thunder Bucks Betting – Saturday, 8:30 PM ET

The NBA betting odds in this game will also be close as the Bucks are 2-4 at home, while the Thunder are 2-2 away from home. The Thunder may actually hope to be the underdog as they’re 2-0 as an ATS underdog. First, they’re going to have to change their fortunes in Milwaukee, where the Thunder are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five trips to Wisconsin, and three of those came when the franchise was still called the Seattle Supersonics. The last three meetings in Milwaukee have gone over the posted total, but this may not get there as the teams tire in the second half: Oklahoma City will be in Boston on Friday night, while the Bucks will be in Philadelphia.

Jazz Trailblazers Betting – Saturday, 10:00 PM ET

This will be another close NBA betting line as the Jazz are 4-2-1 ATS on the road this season, while the Trailblazers are 3-1-1 ATS at home. The Trailblazers are 3-2 both SU and ATS in their last five meetings with the Jazz at the Rose Garden, with three of those meetings going over the posted total. The Trailblazers should actually have the advantage in this game as the Jazz will be at home on Friday night, playing a very tough San Antonio team, then they have to travel to Portland, where the Trailblazers will be waiting after a big win over Denver on Thursday night.

eltics Raptors Betting – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

Sunday’s action kicks off with a game where the road team will likely be the NBA betting favorite, as the Celtics are 5-1 ATS away from home this season, while the Raptors are 1-3 ATS at home. The Celtics are 4-1 SU in their last five trips up north, but they’re only 2-3 ATS as the Raptors were able to get up for a big team like Boston. Four of those meetings have gone over the posted total. Both teams play on Friday night, so they’ll have Saturday off to be rested for this early Sunday start.

Warriors Lakers Betting – Sunday, 9:30 PM ET

The Warriors and Lakers end the weekend at the Staples Center, where the Lakers are 3-4 ATS at home, although that’s because we think the sportsbook are being a little too generous with the points. The Warriors are a decent 3-3 ATS away from home, and while they’re 0-5 SU in their last five road games against the Lakers, they’re 3-2 ATS and like the Raptors, they seem to be able to get fired up for the big teams. Surprisingly, three of the five meetings have gone under the posted total, but again, the totals are extraordinarily high for these games. Again, both teams are off Saturday, but the Lakers will be returning home after a road trip through the east, so they will surely be the online betting favorites in this one.
