Although Kyrie Irving will play, Kevin Durant is out and James Harden is questionable. Harden’s and Durant’s absence gives the Suns a big edge. Brooklyn has gone 1-2-1 ATS in their last 4. Phoenix is 2-3 ATS in their last 5. In the Suns’ defense, they’ve faced huge spreads, which they may not face in this. DeAndre Ayton won’t play. So Phoenix could be a shorter a favorite than they should. Suns cover.

The Nuggets are on a roll. Nikola Jokic and his mates have won 8-of-10. Although winning games, Denver hasn’t dominated against the spread, going 4-5-1 ATS in their last 10. On Tuesday, Denver takes on Minnesota. So this is the second of a back-to-back. Utah dominated Denver 125-102 in the last head-to-head. The Nuggets will struggle to keep this close.

The Clippers upset the Lakers 119-115 in the last head-to-head. Heading into February, the Clipps are playing much better basketball than their city rivals, going 7-1 ATS in their last 8.

Two hot teams step onto the court when the Mavericks host the Sixers. Philadelphia has won 7-of-10 heading into the week. As of Jan. 30, the 76ers are just 1.5 games behind the Miami Heat for the Eastern Conference’s best record. Like Philly, Dallas has also won 7-of-10. Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for Wednesday’s match. Whether he plays or not, Philadelphia is the team to back. The Sixers have taken it to their opponents in recent weeks. Philly wins and covers.

NBA Betting Pick: 76ers

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

  • When: Saturday, February 5, 2022. 8:30 pm ET
  • Where: Moda Center, Portland, OR
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks) // Rip City Radio 620 (Trail Blazers)
  • 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: Bucks

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Sunday, February 6, 2022. 3:30 pm ET
  • Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 97.5 The Fanatic (76ers) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Bulls and Sixers have emerged as two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. Things are going so well for the Sixers that center Joel Embiid is now the NBA MVP favorite. Embiid averages 29 points and over 10 boards per. The Bulls were at full strength in the last head-to-head and the Sixers dominated 114-105. The game happened in Chicago. Give the Sixers the nod to make it two straight versus their rivals.

NBA Betting Pick: 76ers
