NBA 2021 Week 6 Games to Bet On
Tuesday, January 26 – New York Knicks @ Utah Jazz
The Jazz are on a roll! Winners of eight straight, the Jazz are riding their red-hot offense. Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, Mike Conley Jr., and Rudy Gobert are leading the Jazz. They’re currently sitting in the third spot in the Western Conference playoff race. Sitting just .5 games behind the Lakers and Clippers for the top spot.
The New York Knicks are one of the surprises in the league this season. If the season ended today, the Knicks would be a playoff team. Tom Thibodeau has brought his hard-nosed style to the Knicks, and they are following his lead. The Knicks are among the league leaders in defensive efficiency this season. We’ll be anxious to see if the Knicks aggressive defense can slow down the high-powered Jazz offense.
The Jazz have only lost twice at home this season, while the Knicks are a .500 team on the road.
Wednesday, January 27 – Los Angeles Lakers @ Philadelphia 76ers
At the time of this writing, both of these teams are sitting atop their respective Conferences standings. The Lakers are tied with the Clippers, while the Sixers are all alone on top of the East. Winners of three straight, the Sixers are 9-1 at home. Now that Doc Rivers has his full arsenal of weapons back, the Sixers are a force to be reckoned with. Joel Embiid should be a key factor in this game, as the Lakers won’t match up well with the dominant big man. The Lakers do lead the league in defensive efficiency, but they have yet to see a presence like Embiid.
The Lakers are undefeated on the road this season. LeBron James has been leading the Lakers once again this season. Anthony Davis has yet to hit his stride, but once he does, the Lakers will be even more dominant. This one should be a lot of fun to watch.
Friday, January 29 – Milwaukee Bucks @ New Orleans Pelicans
The Bucks are playing at a very high level once again this season. After a slow start to the season, the Bucks have won 7 of their last 10 at the time this article was written. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the way once again for the Bucks. Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, and Brook Lopez are also carrying the load for Milwaukee. The Bucks are once again one of the top offenses in the league.
While the Bucks are near the top of the league’s offensive rankings, the New Orleans Pelicans are near the bottom. Stan Van Gundy’s young and inexperienced roster has struggled on the defensive end of the floor. If they can’t get things straightened up, the Bucks will put up a lot of points on the Pelicans.
