  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: KLRZ 100.3 FM (Pelicans) // 92.9 FM ESPN (Grizzlies)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Zion Williamson should soon step back onto the court. But even when he does, the Pels have more issues than just getting back the former number one pick. Memphis should dominate New Orleans. Ja Morant averages close to 28 points and close to 7 assists per. The Grizzlies rank fourth in points per game with over 113 each contest. Memphis leads the NBA Southwest and is a Finals contender. New Orleans, once again, must go back to the drawing board this offseason. The home team wins and covers.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Milwaukee Bucks

  • When: Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 92.9 “The Game” WZGC FM (Hawks) // SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

As of March 6, the Hawks are a game under .500, which means Trae Young and his teammates should probably push for a play-in spot instead of grabbing the sixth seed. The Bucks roll into the week on a 4-game winning streak. 3-of-4 wins were versus top squads Miami, Chicago, and Phoenix. Milwaukee should have no trouble picking apart the Hawks for an easy win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Bucks

Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers

  • When: Thursday, March 10th, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • 0
  • Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: WFAN 101.9 (Nets) // 97.5 The Fanatic (76ers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Nets remain a work in progress. The reason? Their top assists player, James Harden, is in Philadelphia lobbing passes to Joel Embiid. Embiid remains a favorite to win the NBA MVP and The Beard is averaging 12 assists each contest. But the Sixers head into the week losers of two straight against the spread. The loss to Miami on March 5 was downright pathetic because Philly scored just 82 points. Still, it’s hard to see Brooklyn’s defense stopping the balanced 76ers. Philadelphia wins and covers.

NBA Betting Pick: 76ers

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Golden State Warriors

  • When: Saturday, March 12th, 2022. 8:30 pm ET
  • Where: Chase Center, San Francisco, CA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks) // 95.7 THE GAME (Warriors)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Phoenix isn’t playing their best hoops, but the Warriors have failed to capitalize. From Feb. 27 to March 5, the Warriors lost 5 straight. From Feb. 9 to March 5, Golden State went 1-9 against the spread. The Warriors should be at full strength on Saturday. Even at full strength, it will be difficult to stop surging Milwaukee. Bucks should win and cover the spread.

NBA Betting Pick: Bucks

Dallas Mavericks vs. Boston Celtics

  • When: Sunday, March 13th, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 97.1 The Eagle KEGL (Mavericks) // 98.5 The Sports Hub (Celtics)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Celtics are hot on the 76ers heels. Heading into the week, Boston has a 39-27 record. The Sixers have a 39-24 record. With some luck, the Cs could catch Philly this week. Dallas is a good team, but Boston has dominated ATS since

NBA Betting Pick: Celtics

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns

  • When: Sunday, March 6th, 2022. 9:00 pm ET
  • Where: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 710 ESPNLA (Lakers) // Phoenix Metro 98.7 FM (Suns)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

In the 124-116 victory over Golden State on March 5, LeBron went off for 56 points, 10 boards, and 3 assists. The performance showed that when he puts his mind to it, and feels one-hudnred percent, King James remains the best basketball player in the world.

But dominating the Warriors at home isn’t the same as beating the Suns on the road. Phoenix remains the league’s best team. In the last head-to-head, the Suns blasted the Lakers 108-90. Expect another Phoenix ATS victory.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns
