Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – March 4th Edition

New York Knicks at Sacramento Kings – Monday, March 5, 2019, 10:00 PM EST

The Kings are looking great as they continue to push for a playoff spot. The young nucleus is gelling quite nicely. The team will get a bit of a test against some nice young talent with New York coming to town in this one, however, the Knicks are dead last in the Eastern Conference standings. Aside from Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway, Jr. might have been the most promising young player the Knicks had coming into this season.

Now, they both play for the Mavericks. I think Bogdan Bogdanovic, Willie Cauley-Stein and recently acquired, Harrison Barnes, will do some damage here against a depleted New York Knicks team. I predict a score of 111- 87.

Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets – Friday, March 8, 2019, 10:30 PM EST

The Golden State Warriors just continue to impress. Boogie Cousins showed he is well on his way to being back and better than ever. His presence was felt at the rim and the unique availability for a big man in that system will continue to showcase big-time box scores. Getting lane penetration frees up their outstanding shooters in Kevin Durant, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson and vice versa. Their offense can hurt their opponent in so many ways.

They create a true mismatch at all positions because they have playmakers that normally would be the number one priority to stop, except they have those players at all starting five positions. They also have immense versatility with players like Cousins, Durant, and Green. Each of those players can play multiple positions and with great success.

The Warriors are a safe NBA Betting pick for this week.

The Nuggets, although they have some nice young players, just don’t have much to get excited about in comparison t the star-studded Warriors. Bottom line, I like the Warriors to win this by a score of 118 – 102.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Chicago Bulls – Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 8:00 PM EST

Chicago has been a bad basketball team for a while now and of course, 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 Chicago.

The Sixers can out shoot, out pass, out score, and flat out, outplay the Bulls. The biggest problem for the Bulls 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 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 Sixers to win in blowout fashion in this one, say, by a score of 117 – 92.

Have a great week and enjoy the NBA Betting action!
