It is Halloween week and I have a trio of free spooky NBA betting picks you can cash in on by the end of the week.
NBA Free Picks Halloween Week
San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns
When: Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: Talking Sticks Resort Arena, Phoenix, AZ
Analysis: San Antonio travels to Phoenix a much different team from the one that dominated the Western Conference just a few years ago. The Spurs have played horrible defense this season, allowing an awful 49.7% from the field. Opponents average over 118 per game against San Antonio.
Phoenix has a worse defense than the Spurs has, though. The Suns allow over 118 points per while averaging less than 105. Opponents shoot 50.5% from the field against Phoenix. One sliver of hope is that DeAndre Ayton’s averaging close to 18 points and over 10 boards per.
Ayton should handle San Antonio’s frontcourt, meaning Suns’ guard Devin Booker can take charge. Suns have a shot to win on Wednesday.
Pick: Phoenix Suns
Milwaukee Bucks at Boston Celtics
When: Thursday, Nov.1 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
Analysis: Bucks’ star Giannis Antetonkounmpo left Milwaukee’s game versus Orlando on Oct. 27 due to a possible concussion. He’s listed as questionable to play on Monday. His head should be clear enough to hit the court on Thursday.
With the Greek Freak, Bucks have a shot to beat Boston on the moneyline. Without the Greek Freak, Celtics will roll to an easy win. Even if Giannis plays, Boston ranks first in points allowed, and 3-point percentage allowed. They rank third in field goal percentage allowed.
Boston wins and covers on Nov.1.
Pick: Boston Celtics
Minnesota T’Wolves at Golden State Warriors
When: Friday, Nov. 2 at 10:30 pm ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA
Analysis: Jimmy Butler doesn’t want to be in Minnesota and he’s showing it with his play. Butler hit the court for over 24 minutes on Oct. 26 against the Milwaukee Bucks. He only scored 4 points, grabbed 5 boards, and dished 2 assists.
Without Butler giving it his all, Golden State should roll over the T’Wolves on Friday. The Warriors are 5-1 SU and 3-3 ATS before their Oct. 28 road game versus Brooklyn. GS should add to their home record ATS with an easy win and cover.
Pick: Golden State Warriors
