With another week in the books, we’re back to going through the best bets you can make on NBA games this week. We’re here to help you win big, and that’s exactly it.
Tues. Feb 12
Magic (25-32) @ Pelicans (25-32) 8:00 PM ET
Orlando has won three games in a row, and they are starting to get into a groove. Though they are still a little far from the playoffs, they are looking to get back to the top and keep their streak going. Terrence Ross has been shooting the lights out, while Nikola Vucevic has been a true double-double machine who cannot miss a shot from anywhere on the floor. Jonathon Isaac and Aaron Gordon have both been killing it.
The Pelicans have struggled of late, and hope to find a win tonight. They are being “forced” to play Anthony Davis, and things have been a bit awkward. More boos will likely rain down tonight, but on the bright side for them, young guard/forward Kenrich Williams has been playing extremely well of late, along with Jahlil Okafor. They don’t lack talent, but getting stops on defense continues to be their pitfall.
Prediction: Bet on Orlando! They are on a roll.
WED. Feb 13
Sixers (36-20) @ Knicks (10-45) @ 7:30 PM ET
They exchanged five players at the deadline, and there is no doubt that they have gotten even better. They have one of the greatest lineups in the league… if you thought a team led by Simmons and Embiid was scary, you’re right. A team with the two of them, plus a core around them of Redick, Jimmy Butler, and Tobias, is exceptional. Then you add James Ennis, TJ McConnell, Boban, Furkan Korkmaz, and Mike Scott as the bench, and they are always playing with some serious talent out there.
The Knicks are just trying to keep losing. 16 in a row now, and tonight could mark 17. They have not won a game in 2019 yet, but one thing about them this year that is going well is the continued growth of Kevin Knox. Both DeAndre and DSJ have been out there hooping for NY, giving fans a little hope.
Prediction: Philly by INFINITE.
Warriors (40-15) @ Blazers (33-22) @ 10:30 PM ET
Fresh off a last-second come-from-behind win over the Heat at home, Golden State boosted their win total on the season up to 40. This is a team that is continuing to climb and looking to create a little separation from Denver. The Nuggets’ three-game losing streak has sure helped them out in that area.
Portland has been having a very good year and actually has a win over GS this year, but it won’t be happening again. Rodney Hood is proving to be a good fit with the team, while Jake Layman continues to play well. They need a strong supporting cast around CJ, Dame, and Nurk to get wins, and these guys definitely play a role.
Prediction: A DEFINITE WIN FOR GS
