Must Watch NBA Games March 4-10

Denver Nuggets at L.A. Lakers
When: Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
TV: ESPN

Analysis: Denver heads into the week off a 2-game losing streak. The Nuggets remain around four games ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Northwest Standings, though. Denver could get a reprieve this week facing the San Antonio Spurs on Monday and then the L.A. Lakers on Wednesday.

The Nuggets have gone 11-18 ATS in away games. However, the Lakers are 12-17-2 ATS at home, meaning that they should struggle to keep it close versus Denver on Wednesday night. L.A. has also gone 1-4 ATS in their last five overall.

The Nuggets are a terrific 4-1 ATS in their last five games not counting their last two before the week starts. Denver should get back onto the winning track both against the spread and on the moneyline.

Pick: Denver Nuggets

Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors
When: Friday, March 8 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA
TV: ESPN

Analysis: On Friday, the Nuggets must take on the Warriors on the road. Golden State’s only a game ahead of Denver for the best record in the Western Conference. Golden State has gone an awful (for them!) 2-3 SU in their last five before the week starts.

At home, the Warriors are a terrible team against the spread. Steph Curry and Co. have gone an awful 11-19-1 ATS in home games. They’re 1-9 ATS in their last 10. Denver has a real shot of upsetting the Warriors on the moneyline. The Nuggets are definitely worth the play against the spread.

Pick: Denver Nuggets

Boston Celtics at L.A. Lakers
When: Saturday, March 9 at 8:30 pm ET
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
TV: ABC

Analysis: Boston versus Los Angeles used to be an essential rivalry. It still is to many NBA fans. On Saturday, ABC puts the rivalry in primetime. Neither team has been overly impressive in recent games.

The Celtics are an awful 1-5 SU in their last 6. They’re only 2-4 ATS in those 6 games. The Lakers are a bad 1-4 SU in their last 5. Los Angeles has also gone 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

Who takes this? Los Angeles beat Boston 129-128 in the last head-to-head. All that means is that L.A.’s overplayed in this. Boston’s the team to back against the spread.

Pick: Boston Celtics

Must Bet NHL Games March 4-10

Must Bet NHL Games March 4-10

The NHL season is heating up with four weeks left in the regular season. Just because there are several teams out of the Stanley Cup hunt, doesn’t mean you can’t cash in your NHL bets for the week of March 4th to the 10th.

Must Bet NHL Games for the week of March 4 – 10

St. Louis Blues at Anaheim Ducks
When: Wednesday, March 6 at 10:00 pm ET
Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, CA
TV: NBCSN

Analysis: One of the hottest teams in NHL takes on one of the coldest when the Anaheim Ducks host the St. Louis Blues at the Honda Center on Wednesday, March 6. Although St. Louis is 1-3 on the moneyline in their last 4, overall, they’ve been close to unbeatable in their last 20.

The Blues have gone 17-7 SU in their last 24. In the last matchup versus Anaheim, they dominated the Ducks 5-1 as only a +112 favorite. St. Louis should offer decent odds to get the job done on Wednesday, and it’s hard to see Anaheim putting up much of a fight.

The Ducks are 13-11-6-2 at home. Counting the overtime and shootout losses on their own ice, Anaheim is 13-20 SU at home. The Ducks have gone 1-5 SU in their last 6. They’re 3-13 SU in their last 16. St. Louis easily wins on Wednesday.

Pick: St. Louis Blues

Winnipeg Jets at Washington Capitals
When: Sunday, March 10 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
TV: ESPN+

Analysis: Two of the best in the league throw down on Sunday when Central Division-leading Winnipeg heads to Capital One Arena to battle Stanley Cup defending champion Washington.

Washington’s torn it up in recent games. They’re an awesome 6-1 SU in their last 7. The Capitals also have a sweet 19-9-4-1 record at home.

But, the Jets beat Washington 3-1 in the last meeting. Not only that, Winnipeg will be, by far, the best hockey team Washington’s faced in their last 7 matches. The Jets haven’t played nearly as well as they usually do. That should change this week. They’ll cap the week with a victory over the Capitals on Sunday.

Pick: Winnipeg Jets

Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins
When: Sunday, March 10 at 7:30 pm ET
Where: PPG Paints Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
TV: NBCSN

Analysis: It’s tempting to go with Pittsburgh on March 10 because they are at home, but no team in NHL right now can hang with the Boston Bruins.

Boston is 12-2 SU in their last 14. Pittsburgh did beat the Bruins 3-5 in the last matchup. That game took place in December, though. Boston’s simply the best team in NHL right now, and even though the Penguins are playing well, they’re not playing well enough to stop the Bruins. Boston takes it.

Pick: Boston Bruins
