If you like your NBA betting picks like many people like their favorite alcoholic beverage…straight with no chaser, then consider your ticket punched people! It’s three up and three down thanks to my expert trio of NBA SU picks for the weekend. Now, let’s rock and roll.

Analyzing The Top NBA SU Picks For The Weekend Action (April 8th – 9th)

 

 

New Orleans (33-45) at Golden State (65-14)

When: Saturday, April 8 at 10:30 PM ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland
TV: FSNO, NSBA

Analysis: While that DeMarcus Cousins trade hasn’t worked out so well for New Orleans, Golden State has reeled off a dozen straight wins and are playing their best basketball of the season at just the right time.

The Pelicans have lost two straight and three of their last four and have absolutely no chance of winning this game against a Warriors team that has won each of the last 10 meetings while going 3-3 ATS over the last six.

Pick: Golden State 114 New Orleans 105

Toronto (48-31) at New York (30-49)

When: Sunday, April 9, 12:00 PM ET
Where: Madison Square Garden, Manhattan
TV: MSG, NBATV

Analysis: The Toronto Raptors are the easy pick to beat New York despite being on the road in this contest as they’re looking to hit the postseason with some momentum and the Knicks simply want to get another lost season over with. Toronto has won three of its last four while the Knicks have dropped two of their last three. Keep it simple people and back the much better team in this affair.

Pick: Toronto 101 New York 95

Cleveland at Atlanta

When: Sunday, April 9 at 3:30 PM ET
Where: Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA
TV: NBAt, FSOH, FSSE

Analysis: The Hawks and Cavs play on Friday night in Cleveland, but right now, I don’t think it matters where these two teams play. The Cavs are the easy pick to win as they want to deliver another message to the Hawks that, should they meet in the playoffs, Atlanta will have no chance. The Hawks beat Boston on Wednesday night – after losing to Chicago and lowly Brooklyn in their two previous games, which tells me all I need to know about Atlanta’s chances in this contest.

Pick: Cleveland 109 Atlanta 103
