NBA Betting: Must Bet 2021 Games in Week 12
As we’re currently sitting at the NBA All Star Break, it’s time for the league to sit back and relax for a few days. After the All Star Weekend, the league will return to action on Wednesday, March 10, with a limited slate of games. On Thursday, the league will get back to normal business, as we’ll see a full schedule of games being played. Let’s take a look at some of the games where we think you can turn a few dollars into a lot of money if you bet against their NBA odds.
NBA 2021 Week 12 Games to Bet On
San Antonio Spurs @ Dallas Mavericks – Wednesday, March 10
The two top teams in the Southwest Division will meet for the second time this season. The Spurs are currently leading the division, but their lead has shrunk, as the Mavericks are on a roll. Heading into the All Star Break, the Mavericks have won three in a row and eight of their last 10. Luka Doncic is leading the way for Dallas, and now that Kristaps Porzingis is fully healthy, the Mavericks are looking like the team that made a run in last year’s playoffs. Any time you play a Gregg Popovich team, you know that you’re going to be in for a battle.
Boston Celtics @ Brooklyn Nets – Thursday, March 11
When fully healthy, the Boston Celtics can compete with anyone. However, between COVID issues and injury problems, the Celtics have very rarely had their full complement of players. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have been tremendous this season. Kemba Walker has missed a lot of time due to injury, but he is gradually working his way back into form. We’re not sure if Marcus Smart will be back from injury for this one.
As for the Nets, once they acquired James Harden, they became the favorite to win the Eastern Conference. With Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant, the Nets have arguably the best offense in the NBA. The main issue with the Nets is that they haven’t had the three on the court at the same time very often as Durant and Irving have missed time due to injury. It sounds like Durant should be ready to play in this one, so that doesn’t bode well for the Celtics.
Milwaukee Bucks @ Washington Wizards – Saturday, March 13
On paper, this one should be a no contest, but in reality, this one could be a really close game. While many had already left the Wizards for dead, they’ve suddenly come back to life. They’ve gone 7-3 in their last 10 games. Bradley Beal has been leading the charge, as he’s been nearly unstoppable. The Wizards own victories over some of the top teams in the league, as the Beal and Russell Westbrook combination give teams matchup nightmares.
As for the Bucks, after a slow start, it looks like they’ve finally put things together. They’ve been making some adjustments on both ends of the floor and they’re doing a lot of different things, but they’re looking like they’re finally gelling. Giannis Antetouknoumpo and company will make things difficult for the defensively challenged Wizards.
