NBA Betting – Picks For The Weekend

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/5/2014 2:08:23 AM

Online betting players have a busy weekend in the NBA as teams are getting more and more comfortable with each other, and we can see certain teams starting to gel (we see you, Miami). Here is a look at the top five games of the weekend, and who you should take in your online sportsbook.

Lakers Bulls Betting – Friday, 8:00 PM ET

The Lakers are 2-point NBA betting favorites on the road in Chicago, where they are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five trips. The defending champions are on the second game of a seven-game road trip, although the first game was against the Clippers, who share the Staples Center with the Lakers. The Bulls are a dangerous underdog, going 6-3 ATS when the other team is favored. Both teams come into this game on a three-game winning streak, but the Bulls have some added motivation after a 98-91 loss to the Lakers in Los Angeles on November 23rd. Shannon Brown scored 16 points off the bench in that game, and we don’t think the Lakers will get that kind of production at the United Center on Friday night. Chicago will cover the 2-point spread.

Heat Warriors Betting – Friday, 10:30 PM ET

The streaking Heat are 9-point favorites on the road at Golden State, where they are 4-1 SU and ATS, and the last four meetings have gone over the posted total. The Heat have won six in a row, and this is the third of a four-game road trip, with the last game coming in Sacramento on Saturday. The Warriors have dropped five straight and 10 of the last 11 overall, holding one team under 100 points (and that was the game that they won). Miami is 4-1 SU when they’re a favorite of eight points or more, and even though they’re only 2-3 ATS, we’re going to take the Heat with the points as things are starting to click with the NBA’s version of the Evil Empire.

Jazz Mavericks Betting – Saturday, 8:30 PM ET

Dallas will be the NBA betting favorite at home on Saturday night’s marquee matchup, as they come into this meeting with an 11-game winning streak. The Mavericks are 4-1 SU at home in their last five games against the Jazz, who are 2-3 ATS in those games. The Jazz could be in line to snap the Mavericks’ streak as they’re 6-2-1 ATS away from home, and they’re 6-2 as an ATS underdog. We would like them to go into Dallas and end the Mavericks’ run because they’ll want to avenge a 93-81 loss to Dallas at home on December 3rd, but it’s not going to happen as the Mavericks have Friday off, and the Jazz have a tough home game against Orlando. Go with Dallas at home.

Nuggets Knicks Betting – Sunday, 12:00 PM ET

The Knicks should be favored at home on Sunday afternoon, as they had won 11 of their last 12 as of Friday. New York is 2-3 SU and ATS in their last five at home against the Nuggets, who will be wrapping up a four-game road trip in this game. The Knicks have struggled to cover at home this year, going 4-5-1 ATS at Madison Square Garden, but they should be encouraged by the Nuggets’ 3-6-1 ATS mark on the road. This game is especially intriguing as the Knicks are probably the front-runners to land Denver star Carmelo Anthony, who will likely be traded at some point this season. Anthony has been rumored to be going to New York for months now, so will he want to have a big game to show the Knicks what they could be getting? We think so. Take Denver on the road on Sunday.

Magic Clippers Betting - Sunday, 9:30 PM ET

The Magic will likely be favored on the road in Los Angeles, where they are 3-2 SU and ATS when they play the Clippers in the Staples Center. The Magic had dropped three straight ahead of Friday’s game in Utah, and this will be the second of a three-game trip through the West for Orlando, who is only 2-8 ATS on the road, and they’re 6-11-1 as an ATS favorite. The Clippers are 7-6 ATS at home, and they’re 11-7 ATS as an underdog as they finish a four-game homestand before heading east. We’re going to actually take the Clippers on Sunday night as they’ll want to take a win before they begin their road trip, and the Magic are struggling badly now. Take the Clippers in your sports betting picks.
