Max’s NBA Bet Picks for 2/25/21

 

Orlando (8.5) at Brooklyn (-8.5)

NBA Bet Picks for 2/25/21

Pick: Bet $20 Brooklyn

Total: 227.5 (Lean Over – 228)

Predicted Score: Brooklyn 119 – Orlando 110

Overview: Brooklyn has won 7 games in a row and have routinely beaten up on some of the better teams in the league. Now they get a stretch of winnable games so be interesting to see if they get a bit complacent on the court.

Orlando has managed to get some wins lately – which is a testament to the overall play of Vucevic. Aaron Gordon and Cole Anthony continue to be out so if the Magic have any chance, they will need Vuc to be unstoppable.

The Nets will be without Kevin Durant but it seems like the 1-2 punch of Kyrie and Harden has been enough to win games. And they should be enough to win their 8th in a row.

As for covering the spread, I think they got that too. Orlando’s defense is pretty good but Brooklyn will score and pressure the Magic to keep up. Orlando should get some easy buckets on Brooklyn but not sure if they can keep this close – even if Brooklyn is shooting their average game.

The Nets lead the league with effective field goal % with 58.7%. Orlando is last at 49.4%. So yeah, Brooklyn can afford a bad quarter and still possibly win by double digits.

$20 bet on the Nets.

 

New Orleans (9) at Milwaukee (-9)

NBA Bet Picks for 2/25/21

Pick: Lean New Orleans

Total: 242.5 (Bet $20 Under – 230)

Predicted Score: Milwaukee 119 – New Orleans 111

Overview: After a string of bad losses, the Bucks have now won 3 in a row and have done so in convincing fashion. They are 12-4 at home and host a Pelicans team that is 5-10 on the road and has regularly struggled with beating better teams.

But I can’t come to a side on the spread in this one. I do have Milwaukee winning by 8 and sometimes 9. So that’s too close for me. What I want to look at is the total here.

On the surface, the gut reaction is to say over. New Orleans gives no fucks on defense and lately, both teams have been hitting the over. But Milwaukee has a damn good defense. And New Orleans still has a propensity of forgetting to play a whole quarter of basketball.

So I’m going to bet $20 on the under in this one.

Dallas (5.5) at Philadelphia (-5.5)

Pick: Lean Philadelphia

Pick: Lean Sacramento

Total: 223 (Lean Under – 221)

Predicted Score: Sacramento 113 – New York 108

 

LA Clippers (-7.5) at Memphis (7.5)

Pick: Lean Memphis

Total: 228 (Lean Under – 221)

Predicted Score: LA Clippers 111 – Memphis 110

 

Washington (7) at Denver (-7)

Pick: Lean Washington

Total: 237 (Lean Under – 231)

Predicted Score: Washington 116 – Denver 115
