A Closer Look At My NBA Betting Picks For The Last Week Of The Regular Season
Miami at Boston
When: Wednesday, April 13 at 8:00 pm ET
The Miami Heat are making a push to get things in order for the NBA Playoffs. Miami has won 3 out of its last 4 games. The Heat demolished Orlando 118 to 96 on Feb. 10. Miami also beat Detroit and Chicago in its last 4 games. The Heat are looking like they’re ready for the playoffs.
Boston has gone 7 and 3 straight up in its last 10. The Celtics are most likely going to take it easy in this battle since the NBA Playoffs are right around the corner. Although the Celtics should win the game, Miami is most likely to be the team that cares about winning on April 13.
Memphis at Golden State
When: Wednesday, April 13 at 10:30 pm
The Memphis Grizzlies are an absolute mess. The Grizzlies have gone 2 and 8 straight up in their last 10 games. But Memphis has gone 5 and 5 ATS in their last 10. That’s actually a decent sign considering that Golden State just beat San Antonio 92 to 86 on the road as a +5 point dog.
Who are we kidding? The Warriors have a chance on Wednesday to break the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls single season win record of 72 wins. Stephen Curry won’t let the Warriors lose this game. I think Memphis is going to play the Warriors tough, but the best player of this generation, Steph Curry, is going to do enough for Golden State to break the record.
Pick: Golden State
Utah at Los Angeles Lakers
When: Wednesday, April 13 at 10:30 pm ET
The Utah Jazz are unfortunate to have to play against Kobe Bryant in his ever last professional basketball game. The brilliant Bryant ends a career that started in 1996. The 37 soon to be 38 year-old has done as much as possible for a player not named Air Jordan for the sport of basketball.
You have to respect Kobe. Personally, and I have nothing to back this up, I think that the Black Mamba is going to have a Kobester moment on Wednesday night. He’s going to show the world why he leaves this game as one of the Top 5 players of all time right up there with Bird, Jordan, Magic, and Kareem.
Hey, I love Utah. I think Gordon Heyward is a player for years to come. But the Black Mamba does something special on Wednesday. The Lakers win this straight up.
Pick: Los Angeles Lakers
