Max’s NBA Bet Picks for 3/25/21


GSW (2.5) at SAC (-2.5)

NBA Bet Picks for 3/25/21

Pick: Bet $20 SAC

Total: 223 (Lean Under – 222)

Predicted Score: SAC 113 – GSW 109

Overview: I have not faired well in betting teams in back-to-back situations so there is some apprehension of trusting the Kings tonight. In fact, there’s apprehension of trusting the Kings at all. But with Steph Curry out for the Warriors – this is a team that looks lost on the floor offensively.

The Warriors had been struggling as a team on the floor but their shooting is even worse without Curry in the lineup. Add to the mix that they are not a very good road team and the outlook for the Warriors tonight does not look great.

Sacramento has played better lately – winning 4 of 5 and improving their home record to 10-12. Offense has not been an issue for this team. They were losing because of terrible defense. They still have the worst defensive efficiency in the league – but its been much better as of late.

I think they cover this one. $20 bet on the Kings.


PHI (-5.5) at LAL (5.5)

NBA Bet Picks for 3/25/21

Pick: Bet $20 PHI

Total: 211.5 (Lean Over – 219)

Predicted Score: PHI 112 – LAL 107

Overview: If you told me that I would be betting on the Sixers in back-to-back road games after last year’s road woes, I would have guessed I was chasing for bet wins. Well, I am kind of chasing for bet wins, but at least the Sixers have been better on the road this year.

Philly is 12-9 on the road and have won their last 5 road games. Granted, that was against mediocre talent but isn’t that what the Lakers are without LeBron and Anthony Davis? In fact, mediocre might be too kind.

The Lakers’ offense had not been a juggernaut this season in general – but without their stars, it has looked atrocious. Don’t think that the 111 they put up in their last game means much. I think a JV squad could put up close to triple digits against the Pelicans’ defense.

The Sixers are once again without Joel Embiid and Seth Curry. But not sure it will matter. Philly is too deep and has too many scorers. The Lakers have Dennis Schroder.

$20 bet on the Sixers.


POR (3.5) at MIA (-3.5)

Pick: Lean POR

Total: 218.5 (Lean Under – 225)

Predicted Score: POR 112 – MIA 113

Notes: Miami’s shooting continues to be a problem. Portland is starting to shoot better on the road – but road wins elude them.


WAS (3.5) at NYK (-3.5)

Pick: Lean NYK

Total: 225.5 (Lean Under – 225)

Predicted Score: WAS 109 – NYK 116

Notes: The Knicks just stomped the Wizards two days ago. Like them again today but I’m iffy on trusting them. New York has played much better at home lately.


LAC (-6.5) at SAS (6.5)

Pick: Lean SAS

Total: 221.5 (Lean Under – 217)

Predicted Score: LAC 111 – SAS 106

Notes: The Clippers stomped the Spurs last night. Will be interesting to see if Kawhi and PG play tonight in back-to-back games.
