NBA Betting Picks: Friday, March 12th
Philadelphia 76ers at Washington Wizards
Capital One Arena, 8pm ET
The 76ers have been the best team in the East all season despite a number of times they’ve been dealt Covid protocol issues. They’ve amassed a record of 25-12, which is the best in their conference and the third best in the league as it stands.
The Wizards started off really poorly despite having one of the best rosters they’ve had over the past five or six years. However, they’ve come on strong of late and are a team that no-one can get an easy win against.
Although they’ve lost four of their past five, we really rate the Wizards chances against a Sixers outfit that are without Ben Simmons and maybe even Joel Embiid. Getting them at a 5.5-point start looks a steal here.
Denver Nuggets at Memphis Grizzlies
FexExForum, 8pm ET
The Nuggets come into this game in the best form they’ve been in since last year’s playoffs. In saying that, they’ve been relatively poor this season and have leant on the Joker who has been huge. Overall, the Nuggets are 21-15 and will be looking to build on that.
The Grizzlies did well to stay relevant without Ja Morant on the court, but now that he’s back they’re a totally different beast. They’ve won three of their past four games and are eyeing off a playoff spot in the stacked Western Conference.
Both teams are in winning form coming into this Saturday clash, but the Grizzlies at home are our pick here. Their defense is second to none when they’re switched on and we expect them to be winning this on their home deck.
Houston Rockets at Utah Jazz
Vivint Smart Home Arena, 10pm ET
The Rockets are the easy beats in the competition at the moment having lost each of their last 14 games. Injuries continue to plague them and Eric Gordon going down with a leg injury in their most recent game certainly doesn’t help their cause.
The Jazz have been the hottest team in the competition this season and had three All-Stars as a result. That said, they’re in their leanest patch of the season at the moment with losses coming in three of their past four games. Still, Jazz enter this slate with the best record in the NBA.
On current form and with injuries piling up for the Rockets, this should be a very, very easy win for the home side here. We’re expecting a 20+ point win for the Jazz in this one.
