Don’t Miss Out On These NBA Best Bets Of The Week March 3rd-8th
Houston at Atlanta
When: 7:30 PM ET, Tuesday, March 3rd
Houston battles Atlanta on Tuesday in a tough back-to-back after they take on Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. The Rockets have been playing well without Dwight Howard. James Harden is averaging 27 points per game while Howard’s replacement, Donatas Montiejunas, is averaging 11.6 points and 6.1 boards per game.
Atlanta is awfully tough to beat at home, though. The Hawks are ranked in the Top 10 in every offensive and defensive category. What’s more worrisome for the Rockets should be that the Hawks’ center, Al Horford, is resting on Saturday against Miami. He should be ready to show Montiejunas a thing or two on Tuesday night.
Portland at L.A. Clippers
When: 10:30 PM ET, Wednesday, March 4th
How great is the point-guard matchup in this game? Damian Lilliard, Portland’s point-guard averages 6.2 assists and 21.4 points per game. He battles Chris Paul, who is averaging 9.9 assists and 17.9 points per game.
Unfortunately, Blake Griffin, the Clippers excellent power forward who scores 22.5 points per matchup, may or may not play on Wednesday. He’s expected back in early March, but no date has been set. If he doesn’t play, Lamarcus Aldridge, the Trailblazers’ power forward who is averaging 23 points per game, could dominate the paint. Aldridge has a chance to help the Blazers turn the tables on the 94 to 100 loss they suffered at the hands of the Clipps when these two met in January.
Cleveland at Atlanta
When: 7:30 PM ET, Friday, March 6th
Expect Cleveland to be at full strength for this battle. Both Lebron James and Kyrie Irving have some nagging injuries that they’re dealing with and Kevin Love’s back still isn’t 100%, but this is a seriously important game for the Cavs. They have a shot to close the gap on Atlanta. Don’t think for a minute that Lebron doesn’t know that.
Cleveland, when at full strength, is an awfully difficult team to handle. They are strong across the board. As good as the Hawks are at home, if Lebron’s got the fellas fired up, the Hawks might be in for a tough night even though Atlanta handled Cleveland 109 to 101 in the last meeting.
Chicago at San Antonio
When: 1:00 PM ET, Sunday, March 8th
This should be a walk over for San Antonio without Derrick Rose, right? Not counting their March 4 game versus Sacramento and March 6 game versus Denver, both home contests, the Spurs are a bad 10-15-2 against the spread at home this season.
Chicago battles Indiana on March 6. They’re going to be either 16 and 14 ATS on the road going into San Antonio or 15 and 15 on the road. The Bulls will need to be at full strength, meaning Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson, leading scorer Jimmy Butler, Mike Dunleavy and Joakim Noah will have to play, but if everybody plays, Chicago could be a dog with some bite versus Duncan, Parker and the rest of the Spurs this Sunday.
