Philadelphia 76ers vs Los Angeles Lakers
Philadelphia 76ers will play against Los Angeles Lakers in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Free NBA expert picks. The game is on Tuesday, March 3, at 10:00 PM ET and the place is Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.
Philadelphia 76ers 37-24 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team of Brett Brown lost twice in their last 3 matches. They were from Cleveland Cavaliers away from home 94-108 but then they beat New York Knicks 115-106. Their last match was at Staples Center where they lost against Los Angeles Clippers 130-136. Shake Milton got an amazing game against Clippers in which he scored 39 points and gave 5 assists but that was not enough for his team to win. All of these matches 76ers played without Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid got injured against Cavs which can explain the loss.
Los Angeles Lakers 46-13 are 1st in the NBA Western Conference. Lakers won 8 of their last 9 matches in the league. The only loss for the team of Frank Vogel during that period was away from home against Memphis Grizzlies 88-105. It’s interesting that both LeBron James and Anthony Davis played against Grizzlies but neither of them even scored 20 points. However, the team from L.A. won their last match against New Orleans Pelicans 122-114. This was the first game head-to-head between LeBron James and Zion Williamson.
Both players played very well as Zion scored one more point than LeBron – 35 but James finished with triple-double and the most important his team won. The lead in the 1st place of Lakers in the West seem good and I don’t think that they will have any problem till the end of the regular season to keep the first place.
Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid will not play against Lakers and I don’t see how 76ers will have any chance to beat them in California. That’s why I expect a victory for LeBron James and his teammates against a team that will be without their two best players. Free NBA expert picks: Los Angeles Lakers Spread
Indiana Pacers vs San Antonio Spurs
Indiana Pacers will play against San Antonio Spurs in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Premium NBA picks. The game is on Monday, March 2, at 8:30 PM ET and the place is AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas.
Indiana Pacers 36-24 are 6th in NBA Eastern Conference. The team won 5 of their last 6 games in the league. It all started with an impressive victory against Milwaukee Bucks 118-111 and then they also win against New York Knicks 106-98. The only loss of Pacers in that period was against Raptors in Toronto 81-127. After this embarrassing loss, Indiana managed to get back with victories against Charlotte Hornets, Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers. We need to say that before these wins the team of Nate McMillan lost 6 games in a row.
San Antonio Spurs 25-33 are 10th in the NBA Western Conference. It’s very rare to see the team of Gregg Popovich with a negative record but it seems that this season they will end with such. However, they are still in the battle for the last playoff spot and every match for them right now is a final. In their last game, they beat Orlando Magic with only a point – 114-113. That was a very important victory for Spurs because before that they were beaten from Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks. San Antonio also lost 5 matches in a row at the beginning of February but in their defense, all of these games were away from home against one of the best teams in the West.
Without a doubt, the match will be more important for San Antonio Spurs. They need to win as many games as they can if they want to play in the playoffs. Indiana Packers are 99% in the playoffs because the teams after them in the standings are with negative records. That’s why I expect Gregg Popovich team to win at home this match.

Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks
Boston Celtics will play against Milwaukee Bucks in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Free NBA picks. The game is on Thursday, January 16, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Boston Celtics 27-12 are 3rd in the NBA Eastern Conference. Less than 24 hours ago the team lost at home against Detroit Pistons 103-116. That was a big surprise because Pistons was a total underdog but four Detroit players scored more than 20 points that night. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk finished with 21 points, Derrick Rose added 22 points, Markieff Morris scored 23 points and the highest scoring player was Sekou Doumbouya with 24 points. For Celtics, only two players finished with more than 20 points – Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward.
Before this match, they won two matches in a row both played at home against New Orleans Pelicans and Chicago Bulls. However, before these two victories, Celtics lost for the first time this season 3 matches in a row. The teams that beat them were Washington Wizards, San Antonio Spurs and Philadelphia 76ers.
Milwaukee Bucks 36-6 are 1st in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team of Mike Budenholzer is in four matches winning streak. Bucks won 3 matches away from home in a row against Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers. Their last game was in Milwaukee on Tuesday and they won against New York Knicks 128-102. Giannis Antetokounmpo played less than 22 minutes that night but scored 37 points, gave 4 assists and finished with 9 rebounds. A dominant performance from last year’s MVP.
Boston Celtics won 11 times away from home and lost 8 times. In Milwaukee, Bucks got 19 victories and lost only twice. In their only game this season so far Celtics won at home 105-116. However, I expect Bucks to take revenge and beat them because right now Celtics are in a mini-crisis losing 4 of their last 6 matches in the league. Free NBA picks: Milwaukee Bucks -8½ Spread
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Los Angeles Lakers
Cleveland Cavaliers will play against Los Angeles Lakers in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Free NBA picks. The game is on Monday, January 13, at 10:30 PM ET and the place is Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.
Cleveland Cavaliers 12-27 are 13th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team of John Beilein was very impressive and won their last two matches in the league and both of the games Cleveland played away from home. First, they beat the Detroit Pistons 115-112 after OT. Tristan Thompson was the key player for the victory with 35 points, 3 assists and 14 rebounds. Their last win was even more impressive against Denver Nuggets 111-103. The best player for Cavaliers that night was Collin Sexton with 25 points. Before these two wins Cavs lost 5 matches in a row and 4 of these games they played at home.
Los Angeles Lakers 32-7 are 1st in the NBA Western Conference. The current winning streak of the team is 8 victories. Their last match was against Thunder in Oklahoma City and Lakers were without both Lebron James and Anthony Davis. Everyone expected an easy victory for Thunder but the team from Los Angeles won that match 125-110. The man of the match was Kyle Kuzma who scored 36 points and grab 7 rebounds but finished without assists.
It’s very interesting that lately there is a lot of noise about Kyle Kuzma being traded but he showed that night that he can lead the team in the absence of the big two stars. Before that Lakers beat again away from home Dallas Mavericks 129-114. The last loss of Lakers was on Christmas against Los Angeles Clippers 106-111.
Cleveland Cavaliers won only 6 matches away from home and lost 13 times. L.A. Lakers are 15-4 at home and I don’t see how they can lose against Cavs in Staples Center. I expect a victory for the home team and most likely James will be back in the roster for that match. Free NBA picks: Los Angeles Lakers to win
Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets
Denver Nuggets will play against Houston Rockets in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Premium NBA picks. The game is on Tuesday, December 31, at 7:00 PM ET and the place is Toyota Center, Houston, Texas.
Denver Nuggets 23-9 are 2nd in the NBA Western Conference. The team is in an amazing form and won 9 of its latest 10 matches in the league. Their only loss in that period was very surprising at home against New Orleans Pelicans 100-112. Now Nuggets are in a series of two wins in a row. On Saturday they beat Memphis Grizzlies 119-110 and one day later they won again this time against Sacramento Kings 120-115. It was a very strange game against Kings in which no one from Denver reached 20 points. But on the other side, 7 players scored 10 or more points which was the key to this victory at home. Now Denver will play 5 straight matches away from home which starts against Rockets.
Houston Rockets 22-11 are 4th in the NBA Western Conference. Rockets lost their last match in the league exactly from New Orleans Pelicans 112-127 which is the only team that beat Nuggets lately. But that losing was not shocking given the fact that both James Harden and Russell Westbrook didn’t play against Pelicans. A day earlier with both of them on the court, they beat Brooklyn Nets 108-98. James Harden scored 44 points and Russell Westbrook added 23 points. We should mention Houston lose on the Christmas day against Golden State Warriors 104-116 which we can’t justify with missing players because Harden and Westbrook were on the court that night but Rockets were awful in the second half scoring only 36 points in the 3rd and 4th quarter combined. To compare Golden State scored 54 points in the second half and grab the win.
Nuggets are 8-5 away from home but their last loss was at home and they beat Lakers and Suns in their latest 2 matches as guests. Rockets are 11-4 at home and their stars Harden and Westbrook will be rested and will play against Nuggets. That’s why I expect a very close clash in which I don’t see a favorite and that’s why I will bet on over because on the court will be players that can score. Free Premium NBA picks: Over
Philadelphia 76ers vs Detroit Pistons
Philadelphia 76ers will play against Detroit Pistons in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Free guaranteed NBA picks. The game is on Monday, December 23, at 7:00 PM ET and the place is Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, Michigan.
Philadelphia 76ers 21-10 are 6th in NBA Eastern Conference. On Saturday they played for the last time and beat at home Washington Wizards 125-108. Each of Josh Richardson and Joel Embiid scored 21 points against Wizards to help their team to get the victory. This was a very important win because before the match 76ers were in a 3 game losing streak. First, they were beaten away from home against Brooklyn Nets 89-109 and then the team lost twice in Philadelphia. Miami Heat beat them 104-108 and then they also lost from Dallas Mavericks 98-117. This was very surprising lose because Mavericks were without their biggest star Luka Dončić and all experts expected an easy victory for the home team but they end up beaten by almost 20 points.
Detroit Pistons 11-19 are 11th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team is in an awful series and lost their latest 4 matches in the league. The first two loses were at home against Washington Wizards 119-133 and Toronto Raptors 99-112. We can’t blame them for the lost from Celtics in Boston because they were the underdog in that clash and logically lost 93-114. However, in their last match Pistons faced at home Chicago Bulls and lost it 107-119. This was the 3rd time this season that these teams played and Bulls won all of the matches which is not acceptable for a team like Detroit with players like Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose and etc. However, both Griffin and Rose didn’t play in that match and we can see why there were beaten by one of the weakest teams in the East.
Philadelphia 76ers struggle away from home and got only 6 wins and 8 loses. However, Detroit Pistons got a negative record at home – 7 wins and 9 loses. Without doubt, 76ers are the better team and I expect them to win the upcoming clash even that it will be played in Detroit. Free guaranteed NBA picks: Detroit Pistons Spread
Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers
Dallas Mavericks will play against Philadelphia 76ers in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read Premium NBA picks. The game is on Friday, December 20, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dallas Mavericks 18-9 are 4th in the NBA Western Conference. The team lost their latest match in the league on Wednesday against Boston Celtics 103-109. In the absence of their biggest star Luka Dončić who most likely will not play till the end of the year – Kristaps Porziņģis lead the team. He finished with 23 points and Seth Curry added 20 points but in the end, they lost the game. However, before this lose Mavericks got an impressive victory without Dončić against Bucks in Milwaukee 120-116.
Philadelphia 76ers 20-9 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. 76ers are now in a series of two loses in a row. The first was against Brooklyn Nets away from home 89-109. Embiid doesn’t play against Nets and without him the team is weak. Their latest match was at home against Miami Heat and they lost it 104-108. Joel Embiid was on the court and he finished with 22 points which made him the highest-scoring player for the home team but it wasn’t enough for a victory. For Heat, Jimmy Butler scored only 14 points but Kendrick Nunn finished with 26 points and Bam Adebayo added 23 for his team win. Before these two loses Philadelphia was in a series of 5 wins in which they beat Celtics in Boston.
Dallas Mavericks are 10-2 away from home which make them a better guest in the league. However, 76ers lost only once at home so far and won 14 matches. I think that this is a perfect opportunity for Philadelphia to end their losing steak and beat Mavericks which are without Luka Dončić and in games like these that’s a big factor. Premium NBA picks: Philadelphia 76ers -8½ Spread
Boston Celtics vs Dallas Mavericks
Boston Celtics will play against Dallas Mavericks in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read expert NBA picks. The game is on Wednesday, December 18, at 8:30 PM ET and the place is American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas.
Boston Celtics 17-7 are 3rd in the NBA Eastern Conference. However, the team lost its latest two matches. First, they lost away from home from Indiana Pacers 117-122. Kemba Walker played at the highest level and finished with 44 points against Pacers but no one from his teammates didn’t even reach 20 points. The next day Celtics played at home against Philadelphia 76ers and lost for the first time in TD Garden this season. 76ers beat them 115-109 and Joel Embiid was the best player on the court. He finished with 38 points, 6 assists and 13 rebounds giving no chance to Boston to win that clash.
Dallas Mavericks 18-8 are 3rd in the NBA Western Conference. Their last match was on Monday against Bucks in Milwaukee and they played without their biggest star Luka Dončić who will miss at least two weeks. But guess what they beat Bucks and end their 18 winning streak 120-116. Both Kristaps Porziņģis and Seth Curry finished with 26 points each and help their team to win that match. For Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 48 points and grabbed 14 rebounds but that was not enough and Dallas become the only team so far to beat both Bucks and Lakers. In their other match where Dončić played less than 2 minutes, they faced Miami Heat at home and lost after OT 118-122.
Boston Celtics are 7-6 away from. Dallas Mavericks are 8-6 at home and the team got a much higher winning percentage as guests which is very strange. Mavericks showed us that they are a very good team even without Luka Dončić and they can beat any team in the league. Celtics, on the other hand, lost their latest two games and will be focused to end that losing streak and I think that they can do it in Dallas. expert NBA picks: Boston Celtics -1½ Spread
Dallas Mavericks vs Milwaukee Bucks
Dallas Mavericks will play against Milwaukee Bucks in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read NBA picks predictions. The game is on Monday, December 16, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Dallas Mavericks 17-8 are 3rd in the NBA Western Conference. They lost their last match in NBA on Saturday against Heat in Miami after OT 118-122. The lose was not the worst news that night as their biggest star Luka Dončić played only 1 minute and 40 seconds before left the game with an injury. The news is that he will miss at least two weeks. Heat lead 73-50 at the half time at home against Dallas without Dončić and no one expected anything from them. However, Mavericks won the 3rd quarter 31-18 and the 4th 31-21 to tie the match but lost in the OT 10-6. Tim Hardaway was the highest-scoring player for the team that night with 28 points and Kristaps Porziņģis added 22 but their team felt short to shock everyone and get the win. Before this lose Mavericks beat Detroit Pistons 122-111 at Mexico City, Mexico.
Milwaukee Bucks 24-3 are 1st in the NBA Eastern Conference. The current winning streak of the team is 18 wins which is more than impressive. They also played on Saturday and beat at home Cleveland Cavaliers 125-108. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and also gave 4 assists for less than 24 minutes on the court against Cavs. The most impressive win in that winning streak is definitely against Los Angeles Clippers as they beat them in Milwaukee 119-91. Both Leonard and George played for Clippers that night but that was not enough for the team from L.A. to even have a chance to win that match.
Dallas Mavericks will be without Luka Dončić in the upcoming clash and I don’t think they have a chance against Bucks in Milwaukee without their biggest star. Last year MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is expected to play and I think that the home team will win without any trouble. NBA picks predictions: Milwaukee Bucks -11 Spread
Los Angeles Lakers will play against Atlanta Hawks in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read free NBA picks. The game is on Sunday, December 15, at 6:00 PM ET and the place is State Farm Arena, Atlanta, Georgia.
Los Angeles Lakers 23-3 are 1st in the NBA Western Conference. The current Lakers winning streak is 6 matches and they won 5 away from home in that period. The most impressive victories in that period were against Denver Nuggets as they beat them 105-96 and Utah Jazz 121-96. The last match of L.A. Lakers was again as guests and they faced Miami Heat on Friday. After a very close match, they beat them 113-110 and this win was even more impressive because this was the first loss at home for Heat this season. Anthony Davis was the highest-scoring player on the court that night with 33 points and LeBron James added 28 points. The highest-scoring for the home team was Jimmy Butler with only 23 points which in the end was not enough for his team to beat their opponent.
Atlanta Hawks 6-20 are 14th in the NBA Eastern Conference. Hawks lost 14 of their latest 16 matches in the league. In that period Atlanta beat only Golden State Warriors 104-79 at home and Charlotte Hornets 122-107 away from home. The game against Hornets was their latest victory which was on December 8. The highest-scoring player that night was Trae Young with 30 points. Two days later Hawks played against Miami Heat and everyone think that they will beat them as they had 6 points lead 60 seconds before the end of the match but Miami make it to the OT and then Heat won the OT 18-4.
L.A. Lakers are favorite in the upcoming clash and that is absolutely logical given the fact that the team of Frank Vogel won their latest 13 matches as guests. Atlanta Hawks are 3-9 at home and the team of Lloyd Pierce is in the last place in the East along with Knicks. I expect a blowout victory for LeBron James and his teammates against the awful team of the Hawks. Free NBA picks: Los Angeles Lakers Spread
Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors
Brooklyn Nets will play against Toronto Raptors in the regular season of the NBA, and on our site, you can read free NBA betting picks. The game is on Saturday, December 14, at 7:30 PM ET and the place is Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Canada.
Brooklyn Nets 13-11 are 7th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team lost their last match on Wednesday against Charlotte Hornets 108-113. For Hornets, Devonte’ Graham got a big night and scored 40 points. For example, the highest-scoring player for Nets was Spencer Dinwiddie with 24 points. However, before this lose the team from Brooklyn won 3 matches in a row as they beat away from home Atlanta Hawks 130-118 and Charlotte Hornets 111-104. Their latest win was at home against the strong team of Denver Nuggets 105-102. Again the highest scoring player for Nets was Spencer Dinwiddie with 24 points as he also finished with 8 assists and 4 rebounds. Kyrie Irving is still injured and he doesn’t help his team lately.
Toronto Raptors 16-8 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. Raptors soon won 7 matches in a row in the league but they lost 4 of their last 5 matches. However, all of these loses were against one of the best teams in the NBA – Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, Philadelphia 76ers, and Los Angeles Clippers. The only win for the team from Canada in that period was away from home against Chicago Bulls with only one point 93-92. This was a team victory as 5 Raptors players scored 10 or more points in that clash – Pascal Siakam, Norman Powell, Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and OG Anunoby.
Toronto Raptors are 9-3 at home but they lost their last 3 matches in Canada. Brooklyn Nets are 6-6 away from home and are a good team but I don’t think that they can beat Raptors in Toronto especially without Kyrie Irving. It’s time for the home team to win again in front of their fans. Free NBA betting picks: Toronto Raptors -7½ Spread
New Orleans Pelicans vs Dallas Mavericks
New Orleans Pelicans will play against Dallas Mavericks in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read free NBA picks. The game is on Saturday, December 8, at 2:00 PM ET and the place is American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas.
New Orleans Pelicans 6-16 are 14th in the NBA Western Conference. The team got the number 1 pick at the draft and they choose Zion Williamson who was and still is expected to become one of the best players in the league. However, Zion doesn’t play a single match so far and it seems like he will miss more than 4-8 weeks which was expected. Without him and without Anthony Davis which was traded to L.A. Lakers, Pelicans are in a series of 5 loses in a row and the only team with a worse record than them in the West is Golden State Warriors. Their latest two matches were against Oklahoma City Thunder and in both games, the team of Alvin Gentry scored 104 points but lost the first match 104-109 and the second 104-107.
Dallas Mavericks 15-6 are 4th in the NBA Western Conference. In their latest 10 matches, Mavericks won 9 and currently, the team got 4 wins in a row. Their only loss at that period was from Los Angeles Clippers at home 99-114. Before that, they beat teams like Toronto Raptors, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets in Toyota Center. The first three matches in their winning streak were all away games as they beat Phoenix Suns 120-113, Los Angeles Lakers 114-100 and their next opponent New Orleans Pelicans 118-97. Mavericks’ latest game was on Wednesday at home against Minnesota Timberwolves and they got the victory 121-114 as the highest-scoring player for the team that night was Dwight Powell with 24 points for less than 26 minutes.
Mavericks already beat Pelicans a few days ago in New Orleans with more than 20 points as Luka Dončić scored 33 points and grab 18 rebounds in that match. I expect another victory for Dallas against New Orleans and I think they will cover the spread at home. Free NBA picks: Dallas Mavericks -9 Spread
Los Angeles Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs
Los Angeles Lakers will play against San Antonio Spurs in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can free NBA Picks. The game is on Monday, November 25, at 8:30 PM ET and the place is AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas.
Los Angeles Lakers 14-2 are 1st in the NBA Western Conference. Lakers are unstoppable lately and are in series of 7 wins in a row. All started with away win against Phoenix Suns 123-115 and then Lakers played four matches in Staples Center and won all of them against Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings, Atlanta Hawks, and Oklahoma City Thunder. Now Frank Vogel players are in series of 4 away games and they already won 2 of them. They beat Oklahoma City Thunder 130-127 and then in their latest match they won with only one point difference against Memphis Grizzlies 109-108. In that game, LeBron James leads his team with 30 points and Anthony Davis added 22 points for the victory.
San Antonio Spurs 6-11 are 11th in the NBA Western Conference. In their latest match, they beat New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden 111-104. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 23 points and DeMar DeRozan added 21 points for the victory which ended a series of 8 loses in a row for Spurs. All started with a loss against Boston Celtics 115-135 and then the team of Gregg Popovich was beaten by Grizzlies, Timberwolves, Magic, Trail Blazers, Mavericks, Wizards and 76ers.
L.A. Lakers are 6-1 away from home as they won their latest 6 matches as guests. Spurs are 4-4 at home but were beaten in their latest 3 matches in San Antonio. Lakers are too strong for Spurs right now and after San Antonio beat the weakest team in the NBA – New York Knicks in their latest clash, now I expect that they will continue to lose matches as they are no match at this moment for the strong roster of Lakers lead from stars like LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers
Miami Heat will play against Philadelphia 76ers in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read Premium NBA Picks. The game is on Saturday, November 23, at 10:30 PM ET and the place is Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Miami Heat 11-3 are in 3rd in the NBA Eastern Conference. That’s a much higher position than what everyone expected from them before the season started. Heat are in a series of 5 wins and all started with a victory at home against Detroit Pistons 117-108. Then they beat Cleveland Cavaliers away 108-97 and then they go back to Miami to win against New Orleans Pelicans 109-94. Then they got the victory again against Cavaliers this time at home 124-100 and their latest match was on Friday against Chicago Bulls away but then got another win 108-116. Jimmy Butler leads the Heat against his former team with 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. It’s still too early but the expectations for Heat have never been this high in recent years.
Philadelphia 76ers 10-5 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. 76ers are also in a winning streak of 3 games which started away from home against Cleveland Cavaliers 114-95 and then beat in Philadelphia the weakest team in NBA – New York Knicks 109-104. Their latest game was again at home against the struggling team of San Antonio Spurs and as everyone expected 76ers beat them 115-104. The highest-scoring player in that match was Demar DeRozan with 29 points but that didn’t help the Spurs. For Sixers, Tobias Harris scored 26 points and Joel Embiid added 21 points.
Miami Heat are the underdog in the upcoming match against Philadelphia 76ers which are undefeated at home from the beginning of the season – 6 wins from 6 games. However, that match can go both ways and I will not be surprised if Heat beat 76ers for the first time this season in Philadelphia. I expect a lot of points from both teams as I think they will cover the total points line. Premium NBA Picks: Over 214½
Boston Celtics vs Sacramento Kings
Boston Celtics will play against Sacramento Kings in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read Expert NBA picks. The game is on Sunday, November 17, at 3:30 PM ET and the place is Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California.
Boston Celtics 10-1 are 1st in the NBA Eastern Conference. After losing their first game in the new season from Philadelphia 76ers, Celtics now got 10 wins in a row. Their latest victory was on Friday against Golden State Warriors 105-100 and the game was played in Chase Center. Each of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker scored 20 or more points for the win against the weakest team of Golden State Warriors in the last more than five years. Before that Boston scored 140 points against Washington Wizards and beat them 140-133. They also beat opponents like Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks and Dallas Mavericks.
Sacramento Kings 4-7 are 12th in the NBA Western Conference. They started the new season with loses in a row from Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets and Charlotte Hornets. Kings first win was at home against Utah Jazz with only one point difference – 102-101. De’Aaron Fox leads the team with 25 points that night. Then they also beat away from home New York Knicks 113-92. Sacramento’s latest game was on Friday against Los Angeles Lakers in Staples Center and they were beaten 97-99. The match was close in every single quarter and Kings can blame the bad luck for this loss.
Boston Celtics are 5-1 away from home as their only loss was as a guest against 76ers. However, Sacramento Kings 2-3 at home won their latest 2 matches in their home ground. Their latest victory was against Portland Trail Blazers 107-99. But Celtics are not Trail Blazers and right now they’re unstoppable. That’s why I think they will win against Sacramento Kings and end their 2 wins at home streak. Expert NBA picks: Boston Celtics Spread
Indiana Pacers vs Houston Rockets
Indiana Pacers will play against Houston Rockets in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read Free NBA picks. The game is on Friday, November 15, at 8:00 PM ET and the place is Toyota Center, Houston, Texas.
Indiana Pacers 7-4 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. Packers started the new season with 3 loses in a row from Detroit Pistons twice and Cleveland Cavaliers. After that, however, the team from Indiana won 7 of their next 8 clashes which is very impressive. Their only loss was away from home against Charlotte Hornets after OT 120-122. After that loss, Packers are now in a series of 4 victories and their latest was on Tuesday against Oklahoma City Thunder 111-85 at home. In that match, T.J. Warren scored 23 points and Malcolm Brogdon added 20 points for less than 26 minutes on the court. Just to compare, for Thunder the highest scoring player was Danilo Gallinari who scored only 14 points.
Houston Rockets 8-3 are 2nd in the NBA Western Conference. Rockets won their latest 5 matches in the league and the most recent victory was against Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. They beat them 102-93 in a match in which James Harden scored 47 points and also gave 7 assists. Russell Westbrook played less than 30 minutes because he got 4 personal fouls in the 1st quarter but scored 17 points. For Clippers the highest scoring player was Kawhi Leonard who scored 26 points, gave 7 assists and finished with 12 rebounds but that was not enough for his team to beat Rockets in Houston. Their winning series started against Memphis Grizzlies and then they also beat Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls, and New Orleans Pelicans.
Both teams are in an amazing winning series but one had to end. Indiana Pacers won 7 of their last 8 games in NBA but I don’t think that they can beat right now Rockets in Houston with the form in which is James Harden. Free NBA picks: Houston Rockets Spread

Los Angeles Clippers will play against Houston Rockets in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read Free NBA picks and parlays. The game is on Wednesday, November 13, at 7:30 PM ET and the place is Toyota Center, Houston, Texas.
Los Angeles Clippers 7-3 won 4 of their last 5 matches. Their last game was at home against Toronto Raptors on Monday and they won 98-88. In the 4th quarter of that game, Raptors scored only 10 points. The highest-scoring player for Clippers that night was Lou Williams with 21 points. Kawhi Leonard played against the team where he won last year championship and finished with only 12 points but also got 9 assists and 11 rebounds. For Toronto, no one scored 20 points or more as their highest scoring player that night was Pascal Siakam with only 16 points. Before that L.A. Clippers beat Portland Trail Blazers 107-101 and their only loss was against Milwaukee Bucks 124-129.
Houston Rockets 7-3 are in a series of 4 victories in a row. On Monday they beat away from home New Orleans Pelicans 122-116. James Harden scored 39 points in that match and Russell Westbrook added 26 points as they lead the team for the win. Before that Rockets beat again away from home Chicago Bulls 117-94 and Memphis Grizzlies in Tennessee 107-100. Rockets only match at home in that series was against Golden State Warriors and they won it 129-112. The key players for the victory against Warriors were again James Harden as the Beard scored 36 points and also gave 13 assists which is more than impressive.
At home, Houston Rockets lost only once from Milwaukee Bucks 111-117. Los Angeles Clippers played only 3 matches away from home so far and they won only one of those games and lost twice. After the low scoring match of L.A. Clippers against Raptors, I expect a lot more points in their upcoming match against Rockets which are one of the top-scoring teams in the NBA.

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.
