NBA Betting: Must Bet 2021 Games in Week 11
As we’re nearing the halfway point of the NBA season, All Star Weekend is just around the corner. With this week’s schedule being abbreviated due to the All Star Break, bettors need to get their action in early this week. Let’s take a look at this week’s slate of games and see which ones could make you some money against their NBA odds!
NBA 2021 Week 11 Games to Bet On
Monday, March 1 – Brooklyn Nets @ San Antonio Spurs
The Nets had been the hottest team in the East until they ran into the Mavericks on Saturday night. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant both sat that one out. We’re not sure of Irving’s status for this one, but we do know that Durant won’t be playing again until after the All Star Break. If Irving plays, he and Harden still make a formidable duo.
The Spurs have been the surprise team of the West. Gregg Popovich is once again showing everyone why he may very well be the best coach in the NBA. The Spurs are currently sitting at 17-12 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference Playoff standings. We’ll see how Popovich handles the powerful offense of the Brooklyn Nets.
Tuesday, March 2 – Los Angeles Clippers @ Boston Celtics
The Clippers come off of a Sunday game at Milwaukee to take on the Celtics. When the Celtics are at full strength, they can play with anyone. At the time of this writing, Jaylen Brown is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Washington, so we’re not sure what his status will be for Tuesday night’s game. We do know that Marcus Smart is still out with a calf injury.
The Clippers are 24-11 and are in the second spot in the Western Conference Playoff race. When Paul George and Kawhi Leonard are both on the court, the Clippers are a force. If Boston is missing Brown, this will be a tough matchup for the Celtics.
Wednesday, March 3 – Phoenix Suns @ Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have hit a rough spell. Without Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder, they’ve gone 5-5 in their last 10. LeBron James is racking up the minutes, but he’s still playing at an elite level.
Los Angeles will host the Phoenix Suns. Chris Paul has turned them into a legitimate threat in the West. Paul and Devin Booker make up one of the best backcourts in the league. They have a nice mix of veteran presence with youthful players. At 21-11 the Suns are just one game behind the Lakers for the #4 spot in the Western Conference playoffs.
Wednesday, March 3 – Utah Jazz @ Philadelphia 76ers
We’re going to see a great big man battle, as the best defensive center in the league, Utah’s Rudy Gobert, will clash against the best offensive center, Joel Embiid. Utah has the best record in the league and would love to get a victory over one of the top teams in the eastern Conference. Utah already has a loss on their Eastern swing, so we’ll see how well they handle New Orleans on Monday, and then Philadelphia on Wednesday.
