Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – January 27th Edition

New Orleans Pelicans at Cleveland Cavaliers – Tuesday

Zion Williamson and his New Orleans Pelicans get a chance to visit Cleveland on Tuesday. While it is a fun story to see Zion back in the league, and playing, the Pelicans need to win game.

This is a game they should and need to win. Look for Zion to put on a show, and put up his first 30+ point performance. The Cavaliers defense is no good. Betting the Pelicans to win on the road on Tuesday night seems to be the right choice.

Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers – Wednesday

The Houston Rockets are a little banged up right now. They are also out West, against hungry teams. Portland need wins, and they need them in a bad way.

Whether Harden and Westbrook play in this game or not, the difference here is Damian Lillard. Good luck trying to guard him. Lillard and Westbrook have had their battles. Look for Dame on his home court to get the best in this one. Take Portland.

Golden State Warriors at Boston Celtics – Thursday

If the Golden State Warriors had their healthy bodies, this would be a heck of a basketball game. But, the Warriors are banged up, and struggling to win game. Boston has a few injuries of their own, but they still have a much more talented team.

The Celtics are fighting for a top four spot in the Eastern Conference, and winning this game at home on Thursday is a must. Boston wins this game on Thursday by double digits over the Warriors.

Denver Nuggets at Milwaukee Bucks – Friday

Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets go to Milwaukee and face off against the Greek Freak and his crew. The Nuggets are 18 games over .500, but going to the top seed in the East is not going to be an easy task.

There is a good reason that Milwaukee has lost just 6 of their first 46 games – they are very good. Look for Antetokounmpo and company to be too much for the visitors from the Mile High City.

Los Angeles Lakers at Sacramento Kings – Saturday

It is going to be an emotional week for LeBron James and everyone in Los Angeles. Kobe Bryant was the king of that city, and still reigns as a legend and idol.

LeBron and company will have to shake that off and go on the road to Sacramento on Saturday. In a busy and emotional week, this seems like a great time to bet on the hungry home team. The Kings are 13 games under .500, but super dangerous.
