NBA Betting Picks
Denver Nuggets vs. Sacramento Kings @ Golden 1 Center
The Denver Nuggets scored a statement win over Utah on Sunday, and they could kick on with it now. It followed a loss against San Antonio, but the bounce back was impressive to watch.
Denver owns a 12-8 record, and three of its last four wins have come on the road. Victories over Phoenix, Dallas and Miami stack up well this season, which bodes well against Sacramento.
The Kings are doing well at 10-11 after beating Boston and New Orleans this week. There is plenty to like about those wins, and DeAaron Fox is a player on the rise.
Fox is averaging 22.3 points per game, and although he doesn’t get much attention, that’s only because he plays for the Kings.
Sacramento is a team is plenty of upside, but we’re not sure how they defend Nikola Jokic. Denver’s big man is averaging 26.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 8.6 assists per game.
He is dominating not only the paint, but he can shoot the outside shot. Stopping Jokic is easier said than done, and we don’t think Sacramento will on Sunday.
Take the Nuggets to win, but it should be a close game.
Bet: Denver Nuggets to win
Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers @ Wells Fargo Center
The marquee matchup this Sunday is the Nets vs. 76ers, which includes two of the best Eastern Conference teams in the NBA.
Brooklyn has won four of its last five games, with the only loss coming to Washington in dramatic fashion. The Nets should have won that game, but they responded well with a 124-120 win over Los Angeles Clippers.
The Nets have a three-headed monster, and it was Kyrie Irving who stood out on Wednesday. He was electric, and having a third superstar allows either James Harden or Kevin Durant to have an off game.
Standing in their way this Sunday are the Philadelphia 76ers, which have a 16-6 record. The 76ers have won 10 of 11 games at home this season, including a statement win over the Lakers last week.
Philadelphia followed up that win with three consecutive victories on the road, which was important for this team. Winning on the road has been tough for Philadelphia, so beating Minnesota, Indiana and Charlotte was a good performance.
The win over Indiana was incredible, and it came without Joel Embiid. The 76ers were down by 16 points in the final quarter, and ended up winning by nine points. It’s wins like that which makes Philadelphia a team to follow this season.
Bet: Philadelphia 76ers to win
San Antonio Spurs vs. Houston Rockets @ Toyota Center
The all-Texas showdown is always fun to watch, and we’re expecting a close game on Sunday afternoon.
Houston has done well to post a 10-10 record, given they lost James Harden early in the season. It recorded four consecutive wins before losing to Oklahoma City earlier this week.
Stepping up for Houston has been Christian Wood, who is averaging a double-double with 22.3 points and 10.4 rebounds. Wood is exceeding expectations, and he will get help from Victor Oladipo when he hits form.
San Antonio is 12-10 following mixed results of late. It lost consecutive games to Memphis, but wins over Boston and Denver is great to have on the record.
We would love to see DeMar DeRozan go to another level, as he’s averaging just 20.1 points per game. However, he does the little things right, and that can’t be overlooked.
Having home court advantage could be the difference in this game, so we give the slight edge to the Rockets on Sunday.
Bet: Houston Rockets to win
