There are a number of important match-ups taking place, but here are the top 2 NBA games to bet on this week with Intertops.
We’re still a few weeks away from the playoffs starting, and some major NBA games are set to take place this week. In this article we take a look at two of the biggest.
Washington Wizards vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
The Washington Wizards have been making US gambling news this season with their unlikely ascent to the number 2 spot in the NBA Eastern Conference rankings. John Wall is finally looking like the top player he was anticipated to be, and Bradley Beal has been playing arguably his best ever this season. With a record of 41-24, they are closing in on the top of the NBA Championship betting odds at 29.00. Their odds to beat the Timberwolves are set at 2.05.
The Timberwolves are in a much different spot this season with a current record of 27-38. They had an incredible performance beating the Warriors last week, and many basketball betting experts are now predicting they’ll get the win this week against the Wizards. Their odds to win are currently set at 1.80.
This is without a doubt one of the best NBA games to bet on this week. Both teams here are pushing for their opportunity to reach the playoffs, and the winner will move up the rankings considerably.
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets
Most online sportsbooks in the US are not predicting this game will be as competitive as the one between the Wizards and Timberwolves, but it’s still one of the top NBA games to bet on this week. The Lakers have still not seemed to have recovered from Kobe Bryant’s departure, as they are now the lowest ranked team in the Western Conference with a record of 20-46. Because of this, they are a massive NBA betting underdog this week with odds of 8.25.
The Denver Nuggets are having somewhat of a mediocre season thus far with a record of 31-35. They are currently on a two game win streak against the Boston Celtics and Sacramento Kings, but have struggled to find much success against top competition. The Nugget’s odds to beat the Lakers are set at 1.07.
