NBA Betting Picks Wednesday
Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers
Really like the look of the 76ers here. These are arguably the two teams in the NBA that have been affected the most by the COVID-19 pandemic so far, with the 76ers losing over half of their roster for a period of time and the Celtics being without star forward Jayson Tatum for two weeks.
Philadelphia are now on the back-end of their COVID scare and are now getting their players back in the line-up. Joel Embiid is also back in the line-up after missing their last game with a knee injury, so the 76ers will be near full strength for this game.
Philly are 9-5 straight up this season, however, they are a dominant 7-1 at home and 5-3 at home against the spread. They will be desperate to bounce back after a disappointing loss to the Grizzlies. Back them to cover here.
Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers will begin life without shooting guard CJ McCollum this week as the All-Star went down with a foot injury a few days ago and will be out for at least four weeks. The bulk of the scoring load will fall on the shoulders of Damian Lillard, who went off for 35 points in a loss to the Spurs on Monday night.
The Grizzlies will be buoyed by the return of star point guard Ja Morant, who missed considerable time from an ankle injury. Morant has looked solid in his two games back from injury, averaging 17 points per game and 8 assists as the Grizzlies have recorded back to back wins.
The Grizzlies are just 7-6 straight up on the season but are a fantastic 4-1 on the road, which is where they will be on Wednesday night. They are getting a 1.5 point headstart and we like them to cover here against a Blazers side that is still scrambling to find a reliable second scorer.
San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors
As seems to be the case every single year, the Spurs are quietly going about their business and have racked up a tidy 8-6 record to start the season. They haven’t been getting much love from the bookmakers though, and are currently the second best team in the league at 9-5, behind only the Chicago Bulls.
The Warriors are coming off a fantastic win against the Lakers in a thrilling contest. The win snapped a two game losing streak, taking them to 7-6 on the season and 6-7 against the spread.
Like the value of the Spurs here. I’s no coincidence that the most professional orgniastion in the NBA is yet to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by winning three of their last four, they seem to be reaping the rewards for that dilligence at the moment. Back them on the road, where they are 6-2 straight up and 6-2 against the spread.
