NBA Picks Feb 5th – 11th

With the NFL season in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to focus on making big bucks on betting NBA.

NBA Picks Feb 5th – 11th

The first game on my NBA Picks list this week takes place on Wednesday when the Minnesota T’Wolves head to Cleveland to battle the Cavaliers. Can up and coming Minnesota beat Cleveland on their court? On Saturday, Golden State hosts San Antonio. Are the Spurs good enough to hang with the Warriors on the road? Sunday’s nationally broadcast battle has Boston facing off against Cleveland. What happens when LeBron and Kyrie hit the court against each other?

Minnesota at Cleveland
When:  Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH

Analysis: The T’Wolves maintain a slight edge over Oklahoma City in the Northwest Standings. The T’Wolves boast a Top 10 offense. Minnesota averages 109 points per. That ranks sixth in the NBA. The Wolves do allow close to 48% shooting from the field, though. Could Minny’s issues on defense lead to a Cleveland win in this matchup on Wednesday? I don’t think so.

Cleveland is sort of a mess. The Cavaliers are ahead in the Central Division. But, their defense ranks twenty-six in the NBA. Cleveland will be without forward Kevin Love. He’s their best rebounder.
Minnesota’s front line should dominate the Cavaliers on Feb. 7.

Pick: Minnesota

San Antonio at Golden State
When:  Saturday, Feb. 10 at 8:30 pm ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, CA

Analysis: San Antonio battled Golden State on Nov. 2, 2017. What happened? The Warriors dominated the Spurs. Golden State beat San Antonio 112 to 92. The game took place in San Antonio.

The Warriors can play down to its competition. I don’t believe it happens in this game. Golden State wants to beat teams like San Antonio. They relish dominating teams that non-believers feel can take them down.

Golden State is easily the better team. The Spurs best player, Kawhi Leonard, is out indefinitely with a quadricep issue. Golden State rolls.

Pick: Golden State

Cleveland at Boston
When:  Sunday, Feb. 11 at 3:30 pm ET
Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA

Analysis: Cleveland travels to Boston on Sunday, Feb. 11. There’s no reason to believe that the Cavaliers will somehow come up huge versus one of the better defensive teams in the NBA. LeBron can’t do it all himself.

Boston knows that. The Celtics figure to exploit match ups versus other players on the floor. If LeBron decides to go against Jaylen Brown, Kyrie will target Jason Tatum. If LeBron guards Tatum, he’ll go to Brown.

Any way you cut it, Boston should handle the Cavaliers in Sunday’s matchup.

Pick: Boston
