NBA Picks – Wednesday Rundown

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/31/2010 2:10:26 PM

Los Angeles Lakers @ Atlanta Hawks

Online betting players are watching the Lakers start to get into a rhythm at the right time of year, and they’re doing it with a struggling Kobe Bryant, which is freeing up more shots for Pau Gasol. Ron Artest has also been playing inspired as of late. The Hawks have won seven of their last 10, and they’re an excellent team at home. The Lakers will be at the end of a week-long road trip, so go with the Hawks here.

Pick: Atlanta Hawks

Milwaukee Bucks @ Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavs will be the favorites at home, where they are nearly unbeatable, but they also get an edge because the Bucks will be playing the night before against the Los Angeles Clippers. Cleveland has been off since a home win over Sacramento on Sunday, so they’ll be rested. At least a day off would almost level the playing field here. Also, the Bucks have lost 12 of their last 13 trips to Cleveland.

Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers

Los Angeles Clippers @ Toronto Raptors

The Clippers are 8-29 on the road ahead of Tuesday’s game in Milwaukee, and then they have to travel to Toronto, where the Raptors will be waiting after a gusty win in Charlotte on Monday night. The Raptors don’t have a tough run-in to the playoffs, and these are the games they have to win if they want to build some momentum.

Pick: Toronto Raptors

Philadelphia 76ers @ Charlotte Bobcats

The Bobcats let one slip away against the Raptors on Monday at home, where they’ve been great all season, and they’ll be eager to pounce on the 76ers, who had won two straight ahead of Tuesday’s visit from Oklahoma City. The 76ers have also lost eight of their last 10 in Charlotte, including four in a row.

Pick: Charlotte Bobcats

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Boston Celtics

The Celtics will definitely be hungry to get back on the court after they were booed off the Garden floor in a loss to San Antonio on Sunday. The Celtics have been uncharacteristically shaky at home this season, and more alarmingly for NBA betting players, they’ve been blown out in a few. The Thunder have dropped nine of their last 10 in Boston, and they’ve averaged 83 points in their last two trips. However, the Thunder are much improved away from home this season, and they have enough youth on their side that playing back-to-back games isn’t much of a worry.

Pick: Oklahoma City

Miami Heat @ Detroit Pistons

The Pistons have lost their last eight games, while the Heat come into the Motor City on a five-game winning streak. Miami has lost seven of their last 10 trips to Detroit, but they have won two in a row at the Palace, including a 92-65 rout back in January. If any team is playing out the string right now, it’s Detroit.

Pick: Miami

Phoenix Suns @ New Jersey Nets

You may think this is crazy, but the Nets are the play here. The Suns will play in Chicago on Tuesday against a Bulls team trying to make the playoffs, and the Nets have also won three of their last four to avoid the most losses in NBA history, including a surprising sportsbook win over San Antonio.

Pick: New Jersey Nets

Washington Wizards @ New Orleans Hornets

The Wizards had lost 15 straight heading into Tuesday’s game in Houston, and they’re headed to New Orleans, where they have lost nine of their last 10. The Hornets are coming off a big win over the Lakers, and they got 32 points and 16 assists from Chris Paul and Darren Collison. Washington’s starting point guard is Shaun Livingstone. This could get ugly.

Pick: New Orleans Hornets

Sacramento Kings @ Minnesota Timberwolves

The Kings should have Tyreke Evans back in the lineup for Tuesday’s game in Indiana, while the Timberwolves have lost an astounding 16 games in a row. This may be the last winnable game of the season for Minnesota, and they beat the Kings 112-96 at home back in December. They should be able to get up for this one.

Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves

Dallas Mavericks @ Memphis Grizzlies

The Mavericks have lost their last three games in Memphis, and they haven’t been playing well down the stretch. The Grizzlies have dropped two in a row, but they’re a decent team at home. Streaky, but decent.

Pick: Memphis Grizzlies

Houston Rockets @ San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs routed Boston on the road, and then lost in New Jersey, so they’ll just be happy to be back at home. The Rockets have won their last two trips to San Antonio, but the Spurs have won six of their last seven at home, and they’re looking to take some momentum into the playoffs.

Pick: San Antonio Spurs

New York Knicks @ Portland Trailblazers

The Knicks have lost eight of their last 10 in Portland, and they’re just plain awful on the road. The Trailblazers have won three in a row, and have been off since a win in Oklahoma City on Sunday. An awful East Coast team playing in the West? You do the sports betting math.

Pick: Portland Trailblazers
