NBA Betting Picks: Friday, March 19th
San Antonio Spurs at Cleveland Cavaliers
Quicken Loans Arena, 7:30pm ET
The Spurs come into this in some winning form having overcome the Bulls in their most recent game. They trailed for most of the clash, but came out on top on the back of a huge fourth quarter. The Spurs have now won three of their past four games and are sitting pretty in seventh spot in the West.
The Cavaliers got off to a hot start this season but have cooled off in a big way, which was to be expected. They are a really, really young group but have still managed to grind out some wins, including a victory in their most recent game against the Celtics, whom they overcame by seven points.
The Spurs have a couple of injury problems on their hands and will be without DeMar DeRozan for this outing. Regardless, the Pop coached Spurs are a quality team all around and should be too consistent over four quarters for the young Cavs.
Detroit Pistons at Houston Rockets
Toyota Center, 8pm ET
The Pistons were touted as one of the teams that will struggle in the East this season and that’s exactly how it’s played out. It hasn’t been all doom and gloom however, as Jerami Grant has been a huge signing and they have a couple of nice youngsters coming through in Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart.
The Rockets looked as though they’d be a competitive team when they traded away James Harden, however, injuries and form have now contributed to what now is an 18-game losing streak. It’s embarrassing times if you’re a Rockets fan and it doesn’t look like things will be getting better anytime soon.
It’s crazy to think that a team on an 18-game losing streak can be favorites to win, but that’s what’s in front of us right here. We simply aren’t buying it and are backing the Pistons to get the job done on the road.
Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns
PHX Arena, 10pm ET
Minnesota Timberwolves are going through a rare winning patch with three victories from their past five games. Anthony Edwards has stepped up and was magnificent last time out with 42 points, while KAT was equally impressive with 41 in their clutch win over the Suns.
Phoenix Suns will be devastated with their loss against the Timberwolves, which made it two losses from their past three games. The Suns have struggled to find their way since the All-Star break, but the talented and motivated side shouldn’t take long to kick into gear.
Although the Timberwolves snagged the win over the Suns on Thursday, it will be near impossible for them to make it a double as the Suns will be desperate to make amends. At the end of the day, the Suns are by far the better of the two teams and we expect a significant bounce-back performance from them.
