Los Angeles Lakers vs. Brooklyn Nets

  • When: Tuesday, January 25, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: 710 ESPNLA (Lakers) // WFAN 101.9 (Nets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

After the Lakers upset the Utah Jazz 101-95 on Jan. 17, many felt they may have turned the corner. But LAL followed up the impressive win with a 104-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers. Heading into the week, the Lakers hope to turn around their form. A 113-107 defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat on Jan. 23 says it’s not possible.

But the Lakers take on an injured Nets squad. Brooklyn must play without Durant and Irving. LeBron, Russell and the rest of the Lakers have too much pride to continue the slide. They’ll hand Brooklyn a second straight loss.

NBA Betting Pick: Lakers

Phoenix Suns vs. Utah Jazz

  • When: Wednesday, January 26, 2022. 10:00 pm ET
  • Where: Vivint Arena, Salt Lake City, UT/li>
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: KTAR 98.7 FM (Suns) // Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Jazz)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Suns play the Jazz in back-to-back games on Monday, Jan. 24 and Wednesday, Jan. 26. The Monday game is in Phoenix while the Wednesday matchup is in Utah. Phoenix rolled Utah in the last head-to-head, beating the Jazz 121-100. A similar score could happen on Monday and Wednesday because Utah isn’t playing well. The Jazz have gone 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 to start the week. Phoenix gets the nod to win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors

  • When: Thursday, January 27, 2022. 10:00 pm ET
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: WCCO-AM 830 (Timberwolves) // 95.7 The Game (Warriors)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, Golden State has won 3-of-4. But the Warriors have covered in just 1-of-4. Golden State isn’t playing their best basketball, which is why the T’Wolves could pull off the moneyline upset. Minnesota beat Brooklyn 135-126 on Jan. 23. The T’Wolves dominated Golden State 119-99 in the last head-to-head. The game happened on Jan. 16, which wasn’t too long ago. As long as Minnesota shows up healthy and they don’t sit any players, they can beat the Warriors.

NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Miami Heat

  • When: Friday, January 28, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: FTX Arena, Miami, FL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: KLAC 570 AM (Clippers) // 790 AM The Ticket (Heat)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Paul George is out indefinitely, which means LAC is up against it no matter who they play. Not only that, but this will be the Clippers’ third road game this week. Miami takes on the New York Knicks at home on Jan. 26. They shouldn’t have trouble winning and covering in that game. Expect the Heat to make it 2 straight wins and covers on Friday. Heat roll.

NBA Betting Pick: Heat

Brooklyn Nets vs. Golden State Warriors

  • When: Saturday, January 29, 2022. 8:30 pm ET
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
  • TV: ABC
  • Radio: WFAN 101.9 (Nets) // 95.7 The Game (Warriors)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Saturday’s top contest pits Golden State’s 1-ranked defense against Brooklyn’s 2-ranked field goal shooting offense. The Warriors should have a big edge because Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both might be out. James Harden should play, though, and the Nets are better on defense than most know. Brooklyn allows 44% from the field and 32.7% from three. If the Nets are strong on D, and the Warriors continue their sloppy play, Brooklyn could win this.

NBA Betting Pick: Nets

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Sunday, January 30, 2022. 3:30 pm ET
  • Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: Rip City Radio 620 (Trail Blazers) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, the Blazers are on a roll. Portland has won 4-of-5. They’ve also gone 4-of-5 agianst the spread. None of the 4 squads the Blazers beat were as talented as Chicago. The Bulls haven’t played well. Orlando beat them by 19 on Jan. 23. But Chicago could get back on the right track this week because Zach LaVine should step onto the court. When LaVine and DeMar DeRozan both play, Chicago can hang with any team in the league. The Bulls win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Bulls
