Top NBA SU Picks for the Weekend
If you’re a mixed drink kind of person, then you may want to sit this one out. You see, the quartet of free NBA SU picks that you’re about to get is akin to shot of your favorite alcoholic beverage that comes straight with no chaser! With that said, let’s get busy with my four free SU picks for this coming weekend.
Top NBA SU Picks for the Weekend – Quartet of Free Picks is Straight No Chaser
Saturday, April 2
Indiana at Philadelphia 7:30 PM ET
The Pacers (39-36) are going all-out to keep their faint playoff hopes alive as they currently sit in the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Philadelphia (9-66) has lost 10 straight games, including a 16-point blowout against the Pacers on March 21 as a 15-point road underdog. With Indiana dropping two straight and three of its last four games overall, it’s an easy call that the Pacers will win this affair outright.
The Pick: Indiana 98 Philadelphia 89
Sacramento at Denver 9:00 PM ET
I know that both of these Western Conference ballclubs won’t reach the postseason (again) but with DeMarcus Cousins sitting this one out for the Kings, the Nuggets are the east pick to win at home in this one. Sacramento has gone 2-10 this season without Cousins and while Denver has lost three of its last four games, they did manage to beat the playoff-bound Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. I know the Kings have won three of their last four games and the last two matchups against Denver, but without the enigmatic DeMarcus Cousins, they’re toast!
The Pick: Denver 109 Sacramento 102
Sunday, April 4
Charlotte at Cleveland 3:30 PM ET
I really don’t like LeBron James, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are the pick to get the important home win against a red-hot Charlotte Bobcats ballclub that is looking to leap-frog both, Miami and Atlanta in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Cleveland has alternated wins and losses over their last four games, but for me, I fully expect the Cavs to get the ‘W’ as LeBron James tells his teammates the importance of delivering a statement to the Bobcats in case they meet up in the playoffs.
The Pick: Cleveland 103 Charlotte 97
Washington at L.A. Clippers 3:30 PM ET
The Wizards are the most disappointing team in the league this season after reaching the second round of the payoffs a year ago. Washington has lost two straight and four of its last five games overall, including its pitiful 120-111 loss to dysfunctional Sacramento on Thursday. The Clippers lost a heartbreaker against Oklahoma City on Thursday night, but they’ll be well-rested for this affair – and extremely hungry to get back in the win column. Believe it or not, the Clippers rank in the top 10 in both offense and defense, making them the east pick to win at home in this one!
The Pick: Clippers 105 Wizards 100
