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
