We’ll begin our NBA best bets by looking at the two TNT games on Tuesday, March 16 and we’ll wrap up our coverage by looking at the two NBA TV games on Sunday, March 21.
There are a lot of games on national television for the week of March 15-21, but it should be noted that because of the NCAA Tournament, a lot of the games are on NBA TV. We’ll begin our NBA best bets by looking at the two TNT games on Tuesday, March 16 and we’ll wrap up our coverage by looking at the two NBA TV games on Sunday, March 21. Let’s get started with this week’s NBA best bets.
Tuesday, March 16 NBA Best Bets
Utah Jazz at Boston Celtics (TNT)
This series used to be all Celtics, but no longer, as the Jazz have won the last three in Boston, with two of the three going under the total. The Jazz are definitely the better team this season and I will take them in this matchup.
New Orleans Pelicans at Portland Trail Blazers (TNT)
I have no confidence in the Blazers laying points. They have also dropped five of the last seven in this series in Portland straight up and against the spread. I will take the Pelicans plus the points.
Wednesday, March 17 NBA Best Bets
Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers (ESPN)
This is a show me game in the Eastern Conference and the Bucks will want to prove they are the team to beat. They have also won 7 of the last 10 at Philadelphia. I will take the Bucks in this game.
Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks (ESPN)
The Clippers have won five of the last six in this series and there is no reason Los Angeles won’t continue that success on Wednesday. I will take the Clippers in this game.
Thursday, March 18 NBA Best Bets
Utah Jazz at Washington Wizards (NBA TV)
The Wizards are simply a bad team going nowhere. The Jazz are one of the top teams in the league and although this is a letdown spot, I can’t take Washington. The Jazz have also won the last four in Washington. I will take the Jazz minus the points.
Charlotte Bobcats at Los Angeles Lakers (NBA TV)
I would lean toward taking the points with Charlotte, but the better bet might be the total. 7 of the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles have gone under the total. I will take this game under.
Friday, March 19 NBA Best Bets
Dallas Mavericks at Portland Trail Blazers (NBA TV)
I want no part of the side in this one, as I don’t trust either team, but the total is definitely worth a look. Neither of these teams plays defense and the last five meetings in Portland have gone over. I will go over the total in this one.
Saturday, March 20 NBA Best Bets
Golden State Warriors at Memphis Grizzlies (NBA TV)
This is a huge game in the Western Conference, as both teams are just outside of a playoff spot. Both teams have actually played better on the road, so I will take the Warriors in this one.
Sunday, March 21 NBA Best Bets
Washington Wizards at Brooklyn Nets (NBA TV)
The Wizards are a bad team, but I want no part of laying points with the Nets. The total could be worth a look in this one, as seven of the last ten meetings between the teams in Brooklyn have gone over the total. I will go over the total in this contest.
Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns (NBA TV)
The last game we’ll look at has the Lakers visiting the Suns. The Suns are actually right with the Lakers for second place in the Western Conference, so this is a huge game. The teams met in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago and the Suns won by a score of 114-104. It has been a road team series of late, as the Lakers have won five of the last six in Phoenix. This has also been a high scoring series in Phoenix, with 8 of the last 10 going over. I will make two plays in this one and take the Lakers and the game over the total.
