Golden State Warriors vs Houston Rockets
Golden State Warriors will play against Houston Rockets in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read NBA pick predictions. The game is on Wednesday, November 5, at 7:30 PM ET and the place is Toyota Center, Houston, Texas.
Golden State Warriors 2-5 are without Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson. The first joined Brooklyn Nets and the second will miss probably the whole season because of an injury. Steph Curry also got injured and will miss around 2 months. It’s safe to say that with the dominance of Warriors is over and they will struggle even to make it to the playoffs. They started the new season with 2 loses – from Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder. In their 3rd game, they beat New Orleans Pelicans 134-123 and Stephen Curry, who was not injured at that time, lead his team with 26 points. After that Golden State lost three games in a row against Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets. No one expected anything from them against Portland Trail Blazers but they beat them 127-118 in a game in which Eric Paschall scored 34 points for Warriors.
Houston Rockets 4-3 got all eyes of them after in the summer Russell Westbrook joined them. Even though, they started the new season with a loss from Milwaukee Bucks 111-117. After that Rockets won 3 matches in a row against New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Washington Wizards. At that time everyone thought that Houston will be a contender even for the championship but in their next 2 matches, they disappointed by losing from Brooklyn Nets 116-123 and Miami Heat 100-129. In both of these games Rockets stars, Harden and Westbrook played more than disappointing and in my opinion, they can’t be a contender for the title. Rockets won their last match against Memphis Grizzlies 107-100 and James Harden lead the team with 44 points in the absence of Russell Westbrook who was given a rest.
Rockets will play at home in Houston and they for sure will want to embarrassed Warriors which beat them in the last 5 years. I expect a big match from both Harden and Westbrook against the inexperienced roster of Golden State and a victory in Toyota Center. NBA pick predictions: Houston Rockets to cover the Spread
Milwaukee Bucks vs Minnesota Timberwolves
Milwaukee Bucks will play against Minnesota Timberwolves in the regular season of the NBA and we got on our site Free picks and parlays for NBA matches. The game is on Monday, November 4, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Milwaukee Bucks 4-2 started the season 2019-20 in NBA with a victory against Houston Rockets with Russell Westbrook and James Harden – 117-111. In their second game, they lost for the first time from Miami Heat without Jimmy Butler after OT and the final score was 126-131. In their 3rd match, Bucks were favorite against the team of Cleveland Cavaliers who are without a big star and that’s why the win of Milwaukee 129-112 was expected. Bucks big test was in their game 4 against Boston Celtics which are one of the favorites in East for the championship and Celtics won that match 105-116.
Kemba Walker was the best player that night and he scored 32 points to help his team to win at home in Boston. Milwaukee Bucks won their last two matches and for the first time this season they got a winning streak. Their first win was Orlando Magic 123-91 and in their last game they beat Toronto Raptors 115-105 and Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 36 points against Raptors.
Minnesota Timberwolves 4-1 is the big surprise from the start of the season as they started with 3 wins in a row. Timberwolves’ first match was against Brooklyn Nets and they won it very hard with only one point after OT – 127-126. In their second match, they won against Charlotte Hornets with more than 20 points difference – 121-99. Their third win was against Miami Heat 116-109 and in that match, each of Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Jeff Teague scored more than 20 points.
Their first loss for the season was from Philadelphia 76ers 95-117 in a game that will be remembered with the fight between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns. Both players were immediately suspended from that game. Minnesota’s last game was against Washington Wizards and even without Karl-Anthony Towns, they got no problem to win 131-109 as Robert Covington for less than 20 minutes scored 20 points for Wolves.
Even that the upcoming match will be in Minnesota, Timberwolves are the underdog. I agree with that as we see them against 76ers which are as good as Milwaukee Bucks and they lost with more than 20 points from them. They will also be without Towns who is suspended for two games and that’s why I expect last year MVP, Giannis Antetokounmpo to lead his team for a win against Timberwolves. Free picks and parlays: Milwaukee Bucks -6 Spread
Philadelphia 76ers vs Portland Trail Blazers
Philadelphia 76ers will play against Portland Trail Blazers in the regular season of the NBA and we got Free guaranteed sports picks for NBA. The game is on Saturday, November 2, at 10:00 PM ET and the place is Moda Center, Portland, Oregon.
Philadelphia 76ers 4-0 are unbeaten so far. They started the new season with a win against Boston Celtics 107-93 and then got a victory against Detroit Pistons 117-111. In their 3rd match from the new season they faced Atlanta Hawks and won only with 2 points difference – 105-103 and 76ers can thank Joel Embiid for winning that game because he scored 36 points and also finished with 13 rebounds. Their last clash was against Minnesota Timberwolves and the beat them 117-95 but the most interesting thing in that match was the fight between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns who both got ejected from that match and later become known that both players are suspended for the next two games of their teams. Ben Simmons also took part in the fight but for him there is no suspension and he will be available to play against Blazers. Embiid played only 20 minutes but he finished as highest scoring player for Philadelphia with 19 points.
Portland Trail Blazers 3-2 started with a loss the new season in the NBA from Denver Nuggets 100-108 but then Blazers won two matches in a row – against Sacramento Kings 122-112 and Dallas Mavericks 121-119 with only 2 points and the key player for the win against Mavericks was CJ McCollum who scored 35 points and helped his team to win that match after losing at half time. In their next match they loss from San Antonio Spurs 110-113. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum scored 55 points combined against Spurs but that wasn’t enough for the win. Their last match was against Oklahoma City Thunder and they won it 102-99 and again Lillard and McCollum were the key for the victory with 55 points combined. Kent Bazemore added 14 points in that match.
Portland Trail Blazers are favorites in the upcoming match at home against Philadelphia 76ers and 76ers will be without Joel Embiid who is suspended for two games. Without him Philadelphia is not the same team and that’s why I expect Trail Blazers to win this match and to stop the winning series of 76ers since the start of the season. Free guaranteed sports picks for NBA: Portland Trail Blazers -3 Spread
Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics
Milwaukee Bucks will play against Boston Celtics in the regular season of the NBA and we got free NBA picks for today matches. The game is on Wednesday, October 30, at 7:30 PM ET and the place is TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts.
Milwaukee Bucks 2-1 started the new season in NBA with a win against Houston Rockets 117-111 and, of course, the key player for the victory was last season MVP – Giannis Antetokounmpo who finished with 30 points, 11 assists and 13 rebounds. Wesley Matthews added 14 points and Ersan İlyasova 13 points. For Rockets the best player was Russell Westbrook who finished with 24 points, 7 assists and 16 rebounds. Bucks surprisingly lost their second match from Miami Heat after OT 126-131 and Antetokounmpo 29 points and Middleton 25 points weren’t enough against Heat who were without Jimmy Butler but Goran Dragić scored 25 points and lead his team for the victory. In their last match, they won against Cleveland Cavaliers 129-112 which was expected. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored only 14 points against Cavaliers but Khris Middleton with 21 points and George Hill for less than 20 minutes added 19 points for the victory. For Cleveland Cavaliers, no one scored 20 or more points.
Boston Celtics are also 2-1 but they started the new season with a loss from Philadelphia 76ers 93-107 and the highest scorer on that match was Gordon Hayward with 25 points which can be surprising for everyone that watches closely Boston because Hayward is a big disappointment since he signed for them from Utah Jazz. The star for 76ers was Ben Simmons who scored 24 points, gave 9 assists and finished with 8 rebounds. Then the beat last year champion Toronto Raptors 112-106 after the trio Jaylen Brown-Jayson Tatum-Kemba Walker scored a total of 72 points. For Raptors, Pascal Siakam scored 33 points and Kyle Lowry added 29 points. In their last match, they beat 118-95 New York Knicks which is not so hard task. The biggest factor for the win was Kemba Walker who scored 32 points and gave 4 assists. No one else for Celtics scored 20 or more points. RJ Barrett scored 26 points for Knicks but this was not enough for his team to get a win.
Boston Celtics will play at home but Milwaukee Bucks are favorite to win it even though it is very close and no team can be defined as an underdog in that match. However, I will not pick a winner but expect a lot of points from both teams in a very close match. Free NBA picks: Over 222 points
Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors
Los Angeles Clippers will play against Golden State Warriors in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read free NBA expert picks. The game is on Thursday, October 24, at 10:30 PM ET and the place is Chase Center, San Francisco, California.
L.A. Clippers started the season with a win against Los Angeles Lakers 112-102. The team that is coached by Doc Rivers won even without Paul George against Lakers with LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Kawhi Leonard finished with 30 points, 5 assists, and 6 rebounds. The second high scoring player for Clippers was Lou Williams who finished with 21 points. For Lakers, Danny Green ended with 28 points and Anthony Davis added 25 points. James got 18 points and the big problem for the Lakers was the lacking of points for other players except these three.
Golden State Warriors lost the championship last year from Toronto Raptors who was led from now Clippers star Kawhi Leonard. Except for the championship, Warriors lost Kevin Durant who decided to sign with Brooklyn Nets and Klay Thompson will probably not be available to play this season because of an injury. That’s why no one is expecting to see Golden State even in the Conference championship final. They got Steph Curry but we see that alone he can’t beat the strongest teams in the NBA and Los Angeles Clippers maybe are the strongest team in the league right now.
In the upcoming game, Warriors will play at home and this will be their first game for the season and that’s why they are a small favorite to win. However, Los Angeles Clippers showed everyone in the NBA that they will be the team to be beaten and after the match against Lakers they’re an even bigger favorite to win the championship. Kawhi Leonard is expected to play against Warriors and he said that we will play a lot more in the regular season this year because last year with Raptors he got a lot of rest and don’t play a few matches in a row. I will go with Clippers because I don’t see them losing from Warriors without Durant and Thompson. Free NBA expert picks: Los Angeles Clippers to win
New Orleans Pelicans vs Toronto Raptors
New Orleans Pelicans will play against Toronto Raptors in the regular season of the NBA and here you can read NBA free picks. The game is on Tuesday, October 22, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Canada.
After they lost in the summer Anthony Davis who goes to Los Angeles Lakers the fans of New Orleans Pelicans are waiting to see on the court their 1st round Pick 1 draft choice Zion Williamson who was drafted from Duke. Lonzo Ball will be their PG who came from Lakers for the trade deal of Davis. Lonzo is 1st round Pick 2 draft choice in 2017. Brandon Ingram also came from Lakers and with an excellent 3 point shooter like J.J. Redick it’s very interesting to see what Pelicans will show in the tough West conference. In the preseason Zion Williamson showed that he can score but his buckets came mainly from the ring and he needs to work a lot of his jumper. Their SG will be Jrue Holiday along with Redick and as a center, they got Derrick Favors.
Toronto Raptors won the championship last year but after their best player left – Kawhi Leonard to return home and join Los Angeles Clippers their chances to make another miracle and win the title seem almost impossible. Danny Green also left the team from Canada to join the Los Angeles Lakers. Although they got a pretty decent team with Kyle Lowry as PG and Pascal Siakam who is the most improved player and got a leading role in the playoffs for the team is on the team. Experienced Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka are also there but that’s almost all. They don’t have high-class reserves and if they got a few injuries it will not be a pretty picture.
Raptors are favorite to win that match at home but New Orleans Pelicans with Zion and Lonzo will be very interesting to see what will do in their first official match together. However, the home team showed that they can win games without Kawhi in the regular season last year especially in Canada when the star was rested and I think that they will start with a win against Pelicans and cover the spread. NBA free picks: Toronto Raptors -5½ Spread
NBA 2019-2020 season preview
In the new 2019-20 season of the strongest basketball championship in the world NBA we can expect maybe the most intriguing fight for the championship in years. This will be the 74th edition of the NBA and will start in October. In the last season, the Toronto Raptors shocked everyone and became champion led by phenomenal Kawhi Leonard. nbaexpertpicks.com will offer you NBA free picks and parlays for the whole year season.
No one expected miracles from Raptors last season after they finished second in the NBA Eastern Conference with record: 58-24 and logically they beat in the 1st round of playoffs Orlando Magic with 4-1 and their next opponent was Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference semifinals and these matches were pure classic and we got game number 7 in which Toronto won 92-90 after basket in the last second from Kawhi. In Eastern Conference final they were outsiders against Milwaukee Bucks led by Giannis Antetokounmpo and the situation for Nick Nurse basketball players don’t seem bright after they lost the first 2 games in this series but after that they got 4 straight wins and Toronto Raptors for the first time in their history reached the game for the championship where Golden State Warriors waited for them and again the team from Canada was outsider.
But that doesn’t stop them from winning the series 4-2 and for the first time in their history to become NBA champion and also that was the first time that team not from the USA win NBA championship. The Klaw was selected finals MVP but we have to note that Golden State was without Kevin Durant who miss the first matches of the final series and he came back in Game 5 but he got injured and most likely will miss the next season in NBA.
Kawhi Leonard had a contract for one year with Toronto Raptors and the biggest drama in the NBA during summer was where will Kawhi end up playing the next season. The biggest favorites for his signing were 3: Raptors, Lakers and Clippers and the last two teams are from Los Angeles where is Leonard birthplace. In the end he sign with Los Angeles Clippers after he convince Paul George who also is born in LA to join him so George left no choice to Oklahoma City Thunder other than to trade him to Clippers and two of the NBA biggest stars will play together next season along with Patrick Beverley and the best 6th man award winner Lou Williams. This makes Doc Rivers team a favorite to win the title before the season starts.
The biggest threat for Clippers will be his hometown opponent Los Angeles Lakers who are lead by one of the best NBA players in the whole history LeBron James and he will play alongside Anthony Davis from the next season and all Lakers fans expect them to win the title. Of course, one of the young NBA stars Kyle Kuzma will help them and they can form a big 3. The main problem who can stop LA Lakers from winning the title is injuries and we can’t forget that last season Lakers was on the 3rd place in Western Conference before LeBron got injured and in the end the team who was coached by Luke Walton at the time finished with record 37-45 in the 10th place and miss the playoffs. From the new season, Frank Vogel will be Lakers head coach.
The 3rd team with biggest chance to win the NBA championship according to bookmakers is Milwaukee Bucks. Last season they were 1st in the NBA Eastern Conference with a record: 60-22 but as we said earlier, they lost Eastern Conference final from Toronto Raptors who later win the title. But after Kawhi is no more in Toronto and head to the West the path for the Eastern Conference title is open for Bucks and because of that, they are considered for one of the favorites because everyone expects them to play in the championship game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo won MVP and now all fans in Milwaukee expect big things from him along with Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe. Dont forget that NBA Expert Picks will give you chance to win great money from basketball betting. Just choose your options from our best NBA picks and parlays!
The next big favorite is Houston Rockets who finished 4th in NBA Western Conference with a record: 53-29 and in the playoffs, they eliminated Utah Jazz but, in the semifinals, they lost in 6 games against Golden State Warriors. Now things look brighter for Mike D’Antoni who will have for the next season Russell Westbrook who joined them from the Oklahoma City Thunder and will play again with James Harden after the two were together at Thunder and at one time they got also Kevin Durant but neither of them won the title with OKC.
Westbrook stayed loyal to Thunder till the end but after the news that Paul George will join Clippers, it was clear that Oklahoma will not have any chance to win the championship and they let Brodie go to Houston in exchange for draft picks. So with Westbrook, Harden, Clint Capela, and Eric Gordon Rockets looked very interesting and for sure can beat any team in the NBA.
Philadelphia 76ers are the 5th big favorite to win the title after last season they finished 3rd in the NBA Eastern Conference with a record: 51-31 and they were busted from the future champion after a basket in the last seconds of the game 7 which of course is bad luck. Alongside Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, we will see Al Horford and Tobias Harris who stayed at 76ers after receiving max deal which was very surprising for all basketball experts. The big gap will be the absence of Jimmy Butler who joined Miami Heat but even without him this team looks impressive and if Embiid is healthy and Simmons upgrade his jump shoots they have the weapons to beat any team in the NBA in 7 matches and a lot is expected from Al Horford who joins from Celtics.
For the next favorite for the championship we need to head back to Western Conference and they name is Utah Jazz after they finished 5th with a record: 50-32 but then were eliminated in the 1st round of the playoffs from Houston Rockets 4-1. From the new season, they will have Mike Conley on their roster who joins from Memphis Grizzlies and with Rudy Gobert, Bojan Bogdanović, Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell they can build great chemistry and achieve a lot more than what they did in the last season.
The 3rd time NBA champions for the past 5 years Golden State Warriors are in the 7th place according to bookmakers with chances to win the title. The biggest news in the summer related with Golden State is that Kevin Durant will not be on their team anymore who rejected renewal with Warriors and joined Brooklyn Nets. That’s an enormous blow for their ambitions and when we add that Klay Thompson is also injured which happened in the finals against Toronto Raptors and is expected to miss almost the whole regular season. Although Steph Curry can count on D’Angelo Russell who will need to fill the void of Durant.
Russell joined from the Nets where last season he performed amazing and Brooklyn had the chance to play in the playoffs after finishing 6th in the regular season but was eliminated from Philadelphia 76ers in the 1st round. Another great news for GWS is that they kept Kevon Looney and given the fact that they have one of the best defenders in the league Draymond Green we can write off their chances to win another NBA title.
Boston Celtics are the next team that we will talk about. In the last season they finished 4th in NBA Eastern Conference with record: 49-33 and even they were considered favorites to win the title in the East after they have on their roster players like Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, and Marcus Morris but chemistry wasn’t there and they never find it during the regular season and playoffs. In the playoffs they eliminate with 4:0 Indiana Pacers but after that lost 4:1 from Milwaukee Bucks after Kyrie Irving played horribly in the games against Bucks and we will not see him with Celtics in the next season after he joined Brooklyn Nets where he will play with Kevin Durant when he is healthy again.
The team replaces Irving with Kemba Walker and only time will show if he will be able to build chemistry with his teammates because we know he is a world-class basketball player. Brad Stevens will have the job to not repeat the same mistakes with Kyrie and to build a team not only have world-class basketball players. Our team will give you NBA free picks on the whole year season – a good start point to make money from basketball betting business.
The chances of Denver Nuggets to win the championship are the same as Boston Celtics. Nuggets surprise everyone last season after finished 2nd in the NBA Western Conference with a record: 54-28 and in the playoffs, they beat in the 1st round San Antonio Spurs with Gregg Popovich in 7 games but then they lost in the semifinals from Portland Trail Blazers again in 7 games. The key for the lost from Blazers was game 3 where after 4 overtimes Nuggets lost the clash 140-137. The future is bright for Denver Nuggets because they have Jamal Murray who is 22 years old and Nikola Jokić who is 24 years old. They will have on their roster for the new season Jerami Grant who came from Oklahoma City Thunder. From Paul Millsap, Gary Harris and Mason Plumlee are expected great things and they will be the key for the season in the tough Western Conference.
In our NBA free picks, we can’t miss looking at Brooklyn Nets who are the hottest team in the summer after signed Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. In the upcoming season, it will be hard to talk about championship because Durant is expected to miss the whole season and that makes Irving the only big star on the roster. Spencer Dinwiddie, DeAndre Jordan, and Joe Harris are very good basketball players but they will not be able to help Kyrie to win a title in my opinion. All Brooklyn focus will be for making a championship roster for the 2020/19.
The champions Toronto Raptors have the same chances as Nets to win the title which is very unlikely. Without Kawhi Leonard it’s hard to imagine that they can protect their championship and, of course, we can’t underestimate players like Kyle Lowry, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka, Norman Powell and Pascal Siakam who did amazing during the playoffs but we all remember who lead them in the most crucial moments in the last seconds of the games and make the baskets and that is Leonard. I expect Raptors to make the playoffs in the East but I don’t see how they will win a playoff series against Bucks or 76ers.
It’s surprisingly low rated the chances of Portland Trail Blazers to win the NBA title and we must not forget that they have on their team Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and from the new season they can count on Hassan Whiteside who came from Miami Heat. Pau Gasol will also play for them. Blazers finished 3rd in NBA Western Conference with a record: 53-29 and reached Western Conference final after first eliminate Oklahoma City Thunder in 5 games with Westbrook and Paul George and after that in 7 games Denver Nuggets but they were blown out from Golden State Warriors in 4 games. That will be a key experience for the team and I expect this to make them even stronger in the upcoming season so I think they can be a real contender.
According to me that teams that we talked about are the only ones with real chance to win the title because I don’t see how Dallas Mavericks, Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs or New Orleans Pelicans with Zion Williamson can make it. The new season starts on 22nd October and I also expect the games of Detroit Pistons which signed Derrick Rose who reminded of his MVP season after scored 50 points for Timberwolves last season against Utah Jazz and with Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson Detroit can be a dark horse.
Stay tuned for more free guaranteed NBA picks on the whole year season.
