Floundering Teams Stagger Toward The Finish Line

Posted by Craig Parsons on 4/9/2013 7:15:45 PM

The NBA regular season has just one week left. Teams are out of gas and, in many cases, disillusioned. Which ones will summon up more professional pride and grind out wins?

Game 1: Milwaukee Bucks @ Orlando Magic – Wednesday, April 10

In poker games that unfold at and around tables, players need to be ready to bluff opponents if their hand is sketchy. In NBA games at this point in the season, it’s hard to bluff a foe, because one’s weaknesses are so thoroughly exposed and laid bare. There’s no escaping one’s deficiencies when another coaching staff can look at film and create an effective game plan in a short amount of time.

The Milwaukee Bucks must be relishing the chance to game plan for the Orlando Magic after playing the likes of the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder in recent weeks. The Bucks have been struggling since the All-Star break and have not been able to move upward in the Eastern Conference standings, but when compared to Orlando, they’re in very good shape. The Magic have lost nine of 10 and are at the same level of the sad-sack Charlotte Bobcats in the East. Milwaukee has many ailments, but it should get healthy for at least one night in the northern part of Florida against Orlando.

NBA Betting Pick: Milwaukee

Game 2: Detroit Pistons @ Cleveland Cavaliers - Wednesday, April 10

In the online sports betting legal domain, you should be able to take advantage of teams that have just about packed it in for the remainder of the season. The Detroit Pistons have not only been losing lots of games since the All-Star break; they’ve been losing many of their games by substantial margins. It is not exactly a secret around the league that current head coach Lawrence Frank is being tuned out by his players.

The current roster for the Pistons just doesn’t mesh with its coach, and a change on the bench seems imminent for the franchise in the offseason. Cleveland head coach Byron Scott could very well get fired as well when the season is over, but it has to be said that the Cavaliers have not fractured the way the Pistons have. Cleveland, playing at home, should be able to dispose of a dispirited and disjointed Detroit squad.

NBA Betting Pick: Cleveland

Game 3: Phoenix Suns @ Dallas Mavericks - Wednesday, April 10

Even the ranks of football betting students who simply can’t be bothered to do much of any analysis on the NBA would say that Dallas should win this game. The Mavericks are not going to make the playoffs, but they will want to finish their season in style. They won the NBA championship two years ago and have too much pride to sulk their way through the final week of the season. Phoenix, on the other hand, has been going downhill over the last few months and will probably get a new coach to replace interim boss Lindsay Hunter, who has not found the right formula with his ballclub. Take Dallas in this situation. The Mavericks have more weapons in their arsenal than the Suns do.

NBA Betting Pick: Dallas
