The National Basketball Association is underway. The season got rolling on Tuesday night, and sees all the teams starting play throughout the week. But, now we turn our attention to the National Basketball Association through the opening weekend. I have put together some of the best games in my Top 6 Bets from Opening Weekend in the NBA.
Milwaukee Bucks over Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavaliers are likely going to be the favorite in this game on the road, but Milwaukee is going to win this game. With the Greek Freak in MVP like mode, this Milwaukee team is going to be a ton to deal with all season. Look for a fall off from Cleveland, and their veteran team, as the younger, hungrier Milwaukee team slides past them. Bet the Bucks over the Cavaliers on Friday.
Golden State Warriors over New Orleans Pelicans
The defending champion Golden State Warriors are winless. Well, just one game – but the Warriors are going to take their frustrations of losing to Houston out on New Orleans. Sure, it’s Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, but the transition game is going to be ugly as Golden State pours on points in this game. Look for a big game from Steph Curry as the Warriors win big on the road.
San Antonio Spurs over Chicago Bulls
On Saturday – this is going to be an ugly basketball game. The San Antonio Spurs showed in their opener, in which they beat the Timberwolves – they are still a team that is for real. No Kawhi Leonard, but no problem for Green Bay. The Chicago Bulls are awful, and will be one of the worst in all of the league. The Spurs win on the road by double figures over the Bulls.
Oklahoma City Thunder over Utah Jazz
Another road team on Saturday. Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony. Good luck to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz lost their top scorer from a season ago, and that means trouble in this game, and all season. Look for Oklahoma City to go on the road and whip the Utah Jazz early in the season.
Denver Nuggets over Sacramento Kings
This game is on Saturday in Denver. This is more about betting against the Sacramento Kings than it is taking the Denver Nuggets. This point spread will be pretty small, and there is no doubt that the Nuggets are going to win by a sizeable margin. Take the Nuggets at home on Saturday night.
Oklahoma City Thunder over Minnesota Timberwolves
I like both teams, but Minnesota is going to be the loser here. This is going to be a pretty small point spread, but Oklahoma City at home just has too much fire power. Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George against Andrew Wiggins, Jimmy Butler and Karl Anthony Towns. It will certainly be a fun game on Saturday, but Oklahoma City wins at home.
There is a look at the Top 5 Bets from Opening Weekend in the NBA. Best of luck with all your betting, and we hope you come back next week for more sports betting. Enjoy the action throughout the weekend!
