Top Pro Basketball Betting Games of the Week


Atlanta at Toronto (Thursday)

The Raptors just had their home win streak snapped by the Rockets, but they will get right back on that horse and start winning again. Atlanta is a tough team, but the Raptors have become a contender in the East, while the Hawks are still trying to build consistency.

Phoenix at Denver (Thursday)

Phoenix has been awful both at home and on the road, and while Denver has been inconsistent, they have been stringing more wins together lately. Emmanuel Mudiay is emerging as an exciting talent at point guard, and the team is slowly coalescing into a contender for the future. Playing in the high altitude of the Mile High City, I like Denver to win this one pretty easily.

Cleveland at L.A. Lakers (Thursday)

This is my surprise upset of the week. Well, maybe not that big of a surprise since the Lakers just knocked off Golden State. Cleveland is starting to show some signs of inner dissent, and the Lakers are playing confident with nothing to lose, led by D’Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson in an exciting backcourt. I’m picking the Lakers to rough up King James like they took it to Steph Curry.

Houston at Boston (Friday)

Here we have two teams that like to play at video-game speed, getting up into the 110s and 120s on a regular basis. The difference is that Boston can get stops when they need to on a regular basis, while the Rockets treat defense like an unpleasant vegetable on their dinner plate. They defended well in their win over the Raptors, but it still is not something that they do habitually. I’m taking the Celtics to win this one at home.

Minnesota at Oklahoma City (Friday)

The Thunder are still trying to figure out their defense for the stretch run, but the Timberwolves represent some easy pickings. Yes, the young players are learning and playing better, but they’re not quite ready to take on one of the best four teams in the West.

New York at L.A. Clippers (Friday)

The Clippers have started to play solid ball on both ends of the floor, but the Knicks have gone into a tailspin after a good early start to the season. Look for the Clippers to extend the Knicks’ misery in a big way.

Orlando at Portland (Saturday)

Don’t look now, but the Trail Blazers have vaulted from a team headed for a lottery ball to the sixth spot in the Western Conference. Orlando, on the other hand, is still playing inconsistent ball. Damian Lillard, C.J. McCallum and the rest of the Blazers will feast on the Magic on Saturday night.

Phoenix at Golden State (Saturday)

Did you see what I said about the Suns earlier? Now they’ll be playing a Warriors team focused more than ever on breaking the Bulls’ record of 73 wins in a season, and the Suns aren’t very good. So you can expect a thrashing in this one.
