Written by on March 23, 2016

If you enjoy betting on games in the NBA, there are some fun matchups coming up this weekend and some games that will allow you to take advantage of some new trends. Let’s take a look at some of the top NBA betting games that could help you the most as the week comes to a close.

Top NBA Betting Games for the Weekend

Friday: Dallas at Golden State

Friday, March 18, 6:30 PM
American Airlines Center
So, it’s true that the Mavericks knocked off the Portland Trail Blazers in an overtime thriller on Sunday afternoon. However, they next head to Portland to finish off the home and home on Wednesday, and then they head to Golden State on Friday night. Chandler Parsons, one of their top young scorers, is out indefinitely and may need season ending knee surgery. Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams went off for season highs against Portland on Sunday night, but don’t count on them to have great aging legs in the third small ball game in six days. Salah Mejri, the Mavs rookie who racked up 14 points and six blocks against Portland, will come back to earth even if he is a great talent. So you can expect the Warriors to take advantage of a tired, aging Mavericks roster and cover their line at home.

Friday: Toronto at Houston

Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM
Toyota Center
It was just a couple weeks ago that Houston went north of the border and ended Toronto’s 12 game home winning streak and then went to Boston to end their 14 game home winning streak. Then, the Rockets decided to stop playing defense again and lost a few games to end up back at .500. If you don’t think that the Raptors are ready to bring a big bag of revenge to Houston, then you haven’t been watching Toronto turn into an East contender this year. Take Toronto by as many as six points in this one.

Friday: Phoenix at Sacramento

Friday, March 25, 8:00 PM
Sleep Train Arena
You have the Awful Team that Doesn’t Play Defense against the Dumpster Fire Reality Show, as Phoenix heads to Sacramento. Phoenix has some game players on the offensive side of the ball, but they really can’t stop anyone who really wants to score. Sacramento has some tremendously talented players on the roster, but their two biggest stars Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins are just as hard for coaches to keep happy as they are for opposing teams to defend (when they choose to play hard on the floor). Sacramento does a pretty good job against the bottom feeders,though, so I would pick them in this game.

Saturday: Toronto at New Orleans

Saturday, March 26, 5:00 PM
Smoothie King Center
Guess who’s out for the season? That’s right the franchise hope of the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis. So while the rest of the team has been putting out maximum effort, you can expect the Raptors to follow up their discipline of the Rockets with a win over a team that is young and talented but ultimately over matched in this one.

Sunday: Denver at L.A. Clippers

Sunday, March 27, 1:30 PM
Staples Center, Los Angeles, California
The Clippers have been giving some games away lately, and the Nuggets are enjoying the growth of Emmanuel Mudiay as one of the Association’s most exciting point guards. The Nuggets play a high paced offensive game, which could threaten them if they get into a track meet with the Clippers, but L.A.’s inability to get big stops in recent games could come back to haunt them. If this line is more than five or six for the Clippers, I’d seriously think about taking Denver to cover.
