NBA Betting Tips of the Week

Warriors Build Momentum With Curry Back

The Golden State Warriors are headed to the NBA lottery for the first time since 2012, but they appear to be building some momentum in the season’s final month. They got Steph Curry back on Thursday against the Raptors, when they lost but covered. It actually has been a solid stretch for the Dubs, who have covered in four of their past five including outright wins over the Suns, Nuggets and Sixers.

There’s solid young talent in players like Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole and Damion Lee. Curry has said he wants to finish the season strong and not just play sporadically down the stretch. Andrew Wiggins has played well and Draymond Green is nearing return from injury. They’ve got a rough stretch coming up – their next five games are all against playoff teams – but they should provide nice value as a team that can and should cover more often than not.

Timberwolves are Over’s Best Friend

The Timberwolves have been a lost cause since losing Karl-Anthony Towns, and his return does not appear to be imminent. That’s good news for bettors because Minnesota has become a team with a fast-paced, great offense and terrible defense. Over the last month (Feb. 5 until now), they’re first in pace (106.5), 11th in offensive efficiency (113.4) and 29th in defensive efficiency (118.0). The result? They’ve gone over in 10 of their past 13 games and hit Over totals of 239, 239 and 247 in that span.

Minnesota faces the Rockets, Thunder, Jazz and Trail Blazers in the next two weeks. All of those teams are in the top-10 of offensive efficiency in the past month, meaning there are likely to be huge point totals put on the board. This looks like a trend more than a blip on the screen. These Wolves can score and can’t defend at all. The over is going to be a safe NBA odds play on most nights.

Can Utah Jazz Sustain Their Run?

The Jazz are impossible to predict. Here are the stretches they’ve gone on since Christimas: 10 straight wins, 4 straight wins, 5 straight losses, 4 straight wins, 4 straight losses and currently 5 straight wins. The Jazz are fourth in the Western Conference, an important distinction because it gives them homecourt advantage in Round 1 of the playoffs.

Utah isn’t as good defensively as in the past, but this team is also much better offensively than usual. The Jazz are ninth in offensive efficiency (they were 14th and 16th the last two seasons), including the fifth-best mark since Feb. 1. Utah’s issue has always been an inability to score in the postseason, but that should not be a problem this season. It’s still tough to see a scenario in which they come out of the West, but you could do worse in NBA Finals betting than their +2800 odds. Their offense is for real.
