NBA Betting Picks of the Week – March 11th Edition

Philadelphia 76ers vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 7:00 PM EST

Cleveland has been a bad basketball team for a while, well, since Lebron James left the team, and the Philadelphia 76ers are one of the very best squads in the NBA. Of course, I’m taking the Sixers in this one. The combined efforts of Tobias Harris, Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler, and Ben Simmons will be overpowering to a team like Cleveland. The Sixers can out shoot, out pass, out score, and flat out, outplay the Cavs.

The biggest problem for the Cavaliers right now is that they have a serious lack of star power and a serious lack of direction. In today’s NBA, you need at least two studs that can drive the carriage, and they have arguably one in Kevin Love, but who else can contribute regularly.

They will get the occasional standout game from J.R. Smith, but is he their long term answer? I doubt it. I’ll take the Sixers to win in blowout fashion in this one, say, by a score of 117 – 92.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Chicago Bulls – Friday, March 15, 2019, 10:30 PM EST

Chicago has been a bad basketball team for a while now and of course, Los Angeles has looked like one of the very best squads in the NBA as of late. Of course, I’m taking the Sixers in this one. The Clippers can out shoot, out pass, out score, and flat out, outplay the Bulls, but most teams can. The biggest problem for the Bulls right now is that they have a serious lack of star power and a serious lack of direction.

The Bulls are not a safe NBA Betting Pick against the Clippers.

In today’s NBA, you need at least two studs that can drive the carriage, and they have arguably one in Lauri Markkanen, but who else can contribute regularly. They will get the occasional standout game from Zach Lavine, but is he their long term answer? I doubt it. I’ll take the Clippers to win in blowout fashion in this one, say, by a score of 107 – 96.

Phoenix Sun at Houston Rockets – Friday, March 15, 2019, 8:00 PM EST

The Phoenix Suns are in a race for the lottery pick this season. They’ve been the worst team or the second worst team throughout much of the season. They did seem to find some talent last year with Deandre Ayton, but they clearly aren’t ready or trying to win now.

On the other hand, the Rockets are trying to get into prime form as the season draws to a close. They need to be hitting on all cylinders when the playoffs start if they want to contend for the Western Conference with Golden State. James Harden and Clint Cappella have been a devastating tandem for opponents this season and I’m really looking forward to seeing what Chris Paul can add to that mix.

I don’t think we have really seen them reach their full potential yet with Paul on the squad. The best offensive team in the league will take n the worst overall team in the league. Hey, anything can happen, but my bet is on the Rockets to take care of business here at home with a 120-95 victory.

Have a great NBA Betting week and good luck!
