Posted by Derrick Harper on January 22, 2018 in

The National Basketball Association is turning the page to the next week in January. We have looked at the schedule for this upcoming week, and have some pretty good games that we like in the world of betting. Let’s take a look at the Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week.

Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – January 22nd

Minnesota Timberwolves over Los Angeles Clippers – Monday

The Timberwolves have slipped a little lately, but they are ready to get back on track when they are at the Staples Center to take on the Clippers. The game for the Timberwolves must start with their ability to play defense. The defense has to take over the game and be the difference maker. The Clippers are a team that can score, so Minnesota will have to get the defensive shoes out. Look for them to do this in the late game Monday night.

Boston Celtics over Los Angeles Lakers – Tuesday

Two of the most historic franchises in the NBA will tip off Tuesday at the Staples Center. The Boston Celtics are the top team in the Eastern Conference, while the Lakers have had a tough time winning games. The Lakers did come away with a win on Sunday over the Knicks. Look for the talent of Boston to keep the Lakers down, especially on the defensive side. Take the Celtics over the Lakers on Tuesday.

Philadelphia 76ers over Chicago Bulls – Wednesday

The Process is starting to heat up in Philadelphia with three straight wins. The talent of the 76ers is much better than the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls though, have played better basketball, and are coming off a win over the Atlanta Hawks. The 76ers should be able to run the Bulls out of the gym on Wednesday. Take Philadelphia at home when you are betting this game in the NBA on Wednesday.

Oklahoma City Thunder over Washington Wizards – Thursday

Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony are coming off a blowout win on Saturday over the Cleveland Cavaliers. On Thursday, they will look to take down another Eastern Conference contender.

The Thunder should be one of your NBA Betting Picks of the Week.

The Wizards have been a frustrating team to jump on board with this season. Look for Oklahoma City to keep their solid play going and come away with a win on Thursday.

Houston Rockets over New Orleans Pelicans – Friday

The Houston Rockets are on the road, but the way their offense is playing, not sure anyone can beat them right now. James Harden is starting to regain his health, and his offense has been outstanding. The Rockets take on a Pelicans team that typically chooses when they want to play defense. That’s not a great recipe for success in this game on Friday. Take the Rockets over the Pelicans.

Best of luck with all your betting, and especially betting in the NBA. We hope you enjoyed our look at the Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week.
