NBA Expert Picks Nov 7-13Josh Bailey
My NBA betting picks for the week of November 7th to the 13th start with Brooklyn at New York on Wednesday. Can Brooklyn beat the Derrick Rose led Knicks? Also on Wednesday, Houston takes on San Antonio. Who wins when The Beard battles Kawhi and LaMarcus? On Thursday D-Wade returns to Miami as a Chicago Bull. Will the Heat take out their frustrations against the greatest player that they’ve ever had?
NBA Expert Picks Nov 7-13
Brooklyn at New York
When: Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 7:00 pm ET
Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Analysis: The Brooklyn Nets travel to Madison Square Garden to battle the New York Knicks this Wednesday. Brooklyn is 2-4 on the season. They are almost as bad this season as they were last season.
Not only that, but the Nets take on the Knicks after a Tuesday night game versus the Minnesota T’Wolves at home. It’s not that bad a hike from Brooklyn to Madison Square Garden. Still, going on the road into the Garden could pose a problem for the Nets.
The Knicks have lost 3 out of their last 5 games going into the week. It’s hard to see them dropping this Wednesday, nationally televised event, though. I like New York.
Pick: New York
Houston at San Antonio
When: Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
Analysis: There’s something strange about San Antonio’s 4-2-1 against the spread record to start the week. The 2 losses on the ATS record have occurred at home. At home is where San Antonio finds itself on Wednesday, Nov. 9, against the rival Houston Rockets.
The Spurs have lost Tony Parker and Danny Green until late November. It’s had an effect since San Antonio has lost 2 out of their last 3 games straight up to start the week. By Wednesday, the Spurs should have figured things out.
Houston is 3 and 3 straight up to start the week. They’ve also lost 2 out of their last 3. The big knock against the Rockets is that they take on Washington on the road before having to travel all the way back to San Antonio for this battle.
I like San Antonio.
Pick: San Antonio
Chicago at Miami
When: Thursday, Nov. 10 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL
Analysis: The Bulls travel to Miami to take on the Heat in what used to be an exciting battle on the court. It’s going to be exciting on Thursday because lifetime Heat Dwayne Wade recently took the money and ran to Chicago.
The Bulls have created an interesting line-up. They’re playing former shooting guard Jimmy Butler at small forward while Rajon Rondo and Dwayne Wade make up a talented, strong, backcourt. It hasn’t hurt Jimmy’s numbers. He leads the team with over 21 points per game.
Miami’s defense is one of the best in the NBA. Their issue is scoring points. Neither a guard nor a forward has stepped up to support center Hassan Whiteside. I like Chicago
