Another seven games on the slate this Saturday night in the NBA and as always, we have you covered with a preview for the two major matchups of the night as well as betting picks for every game!
Check them out below.
NBA Saturday Picks
Philadelphia 76ers at Chicago Bulls
United Center, 8.00pm (ET)
there was a lot of hype surrounding the 76ers and their chances of contending for a title in 2023, however, their start to the season has indicated they are anything but a title contender. They are 2-4 through the opening six games of the season and have struggled particularly on offense, putting up just 108.5 points per game so far, ranked 25th in the league in that category.
The Bulls are 3-3 to start their season but picked up a fantastic win over the Celtics at home on Monday night to prove they are a genuine playoffs contender. They will get an opportunity to move above .500 on Saturday night at home before embarking on a tough stretch which includes three of their next four games on the road against the Nets, Celtics and Raptors.
Like the look of the Bulls here with the 1 point headstart. They are 2-1 straight up at home this season while the 76ers have been ordinary on the road, losing two of their three home games by an average of 9.5 points.
Memphis Grizzlies at Utah Jazz
Vivint Arena, 9.00pm (ET)
Interesting matchup here between the Grizzlies, who everyone were predicted to be a top team in the West, and the Jazz, who have highly exceeded expectations through six games.
The Jazz will be at home and looking to improve on a 4-2 record through their opening six games while the Grizzlies currently sit in 2nd place in the West with a 4-1 record. Ja Morant has been dominant for the Grizzlies, averaging 32.6 points per game, good for fourth in the league.
The Grizzlies start as four point favourites on the road but I like the look of the overs here. Both teams sit in the top half of the league when it comes to total offense and both sit in the bottom half when it comes to total defense. Expecting a bit of a shootout here.
