Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, CA
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks) // 710 ESPN (Lakers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, the Bucks are tied with the Chicago Bulls and within a half a game of the Miami Heat for the Eastern Conference’s best record. Milwaukee is on a 3-game winning streak. The Lakers remain a couple of games under .500. But LAL has gone 4-1 against the spread in their last 5. Still, this is easily the best team the Lakers have played during the run. The Bucks win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Bucks

Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz

  • When: Wednesday, February 9, 2022. 10:00 pm ET
  • Where: Vivint Arena, Salt Lake City, UT/li>
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 95.7 The Game FM (Warriors) // Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Jazz)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

If not for the Suns, the Warriors would easily have the best record in the league. Golden State can score when they must, but the high-flying Warriors are more about defense than anything else. Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and the rest of Golden State ranks second in points allowed and first in both field goal percentage allowed and three-point percentage allowed. Utah is the top-scoring team in the league with 113.6 points per game. The Warriors’ defense should temper Utah’s offense. Golden State wins straight up.

NBA Betting Pick: Warriors

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Phoenix Suns

  • When: Thursday, February 10, 2022. 10:00 pm ET
  • Where: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks) // KTAR 98.7 FM (Suns)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The top matchup this week happens on Thursday when the Bucks travel to The Valley to take on the Suns. Milwaukee faces a tough game on Tuesday. This is the first time Phoenix takes on the Bucks after last season’s Finals loss. The Suns have found ways to win and have the best record in the league by 3 games. Milwaukee may not go all out to beat a Western Conference squad while the Suns will have revenge on their minds. Phoenix rolls.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Friday, February 11, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: WCCO 830 AM (76ers) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, the T’Wolves are on a roll, covering in 4 straight moneyline victories. Two of the wins impressed, 126-106 over Utah and 130-116 against Denver. Chicago is a test. Zach LaVine is playing through a back injury and Lonzo Ball won’t step onto the court until late March, though. Minnesota could pull off the moneyline upset win.

NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves

Brooklyn Nets vs. Miami Heat

  • When: Saturday, February 12, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: FTX Arena, Miami, FL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: WFAN 101.9 (Nets) // Rip City Radio 620 (Trail Blazers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Nets are a mess. Kevin Durant is out until later this month. James Harden may play or might not. He’s questionable for the week. Kyrie Irving should play because the coronavirus rules in Florida are different than they are in New York. Even if Irving plays, the Heat are too strong. The team with the best record in the Eastern Conference blasted Brooklyn 106-93 in the last head-to-head. Miami wins and covers.

NBA Betting Pick: Heat

Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics

  • When: Sunday, February 13, 2022. 3:30 pm ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • TV: ABC
  • Radio: 92.9 The Game (Hawks) // 98.5 The Sports Hub (Celtics)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Atlanta had been on a roll, going 7-1 SU and ATS in 8 games before a 125-114 loss to Toronto on Feb. 4 and a 103-94 loss to Dallas on Feb. 6. Boston is on a 5-game winning streak heading into the week. The Celtics are just 3-2 ATS in the 5 wins. But it looks as if Boston has begun to gel. Expect the Celtics to grab the win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Celtics
