Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets

  • When: Thursday, February 24, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: 98.5 The Sports Hub (Celtics) // WFAN 101.9 FM (Nets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Don’t expect Brooklyn to show their best. The Nets must play without Ben Simmons, who requires at least a couple of weeks to get into basketball shape, and Kevin Durant, who is out with an injury until later this week or early next. The Celtics have become the top team in the Association at field goal percentage allowed. Opponents shoot 42.9% from the field against Boston. Celtics roll to a win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Celtics

Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks

  • When: Friday, February 25, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY/li>
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 790 AM The Ticket (Heat) // 104.5 The Team ESPN (Knicks)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Obi Toppin won the slam dunk contest this past Saturday. Maybe, Toppin will step off the bench and bring a spark to the Knicks’ offense. NYK must pick it up on the offensive end to have any shot. In this game, doing so will be difficult because Miami allows 104.4 points per on average, fifth in the league. Heat should win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Heat

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Los Angeles Lakers

  • When: Friday, February 25, 2022. 10:30 pm ET
  • 0
  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, CA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: KLAC 570 AM (Clippers) // 710 ESPNLA (Lakers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Clippers headed into the all-star break on a 4-game against the spread winning streak. LAC went 3-1 SU during the streak. LeBron and the Lakers went 5-2 ATS in their final 7 games before the break. The defense is a mess, though. It allows over 112 per game, and Anthony Davis is out until late March. Things aren’t looking good for the Lakers.

NBA Betting Pick: Clippers

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Saturday, February 26, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 92.9 FM ESPN (Grizzlies) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

41-19 Memphis averages 113.8 points per game. That ranks second in the NBA. The Bulls are a tough matchup, though. The Bulls rank first in field goal percentage and second in three-point percentage. But DeMar DeRozan can’t do it all by himself. Both Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball are out. Ball’s back up, Ayo Dosunmu, is suffering through a thumb injury. Grizzlies roll.

NBA Betting Pick: Grizzlies

Utah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns

  • When: Sunday, February 27, 2022. 3:30 pm ET
  • Where: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: KSL Radio 102.7 FM (Jazz) // 98.7 FM (Suns)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Utah should continue to play great basketball, but the week won’t be kind to the Jazz. On Friday, Utah hosts Dallas before heading to Phoenix for this Sunday contest. The Jazz beat the Suns 105-97 in the last head-to-head. Don’t expect a repeat. The Suns figure to continue their dominating ways. Phoenix wins and covers.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors

  • When: Sunday, February 27, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 97.1 The Eagle KEGL (Mavericks) // 95.7 The Game FAM (Warriors)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7. That bodes well versus a Golden State Warriors squad that went 0-6-1 ATS in their final 7 games before the break. Golden State may win this straight up. But unless Luka sits on the bench, the Mavericks should have a big shot at covering the spread.

NBA Betting Pick: Mavericks
