Top NBA Betting Games of the Week

Thursday, February 18

Chicago at Cleveland 7:00 PM ET

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just 13-13 ATS at home this season, but they’ll be taking on a Chicago Bulls team that has lost four straight and six of its last seven games overall while failing to cover the spread in every loss. LeBron James and company have won three straight games while going 2-1 ATS over the span. The Cavs are looking to improve in a big way under new head coach Tyronn Lue while the Bulls need to find the cohesion that has escaped them virtually all season long.

San Antonio at L.A. Clippers

The Spurs put together a jaw-dropping first half by recording the best ATS record in the league (45-8 SU, 34-19 ATS while going 15-10 ATS on the road compared to the Clippers’ 11-13 home ATS mark. The Spurs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Pacific division teams while the Clippers have gone 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record.

Minnesota at Memphis 7:00 PM ET

The Timberwolves (17-37 SU, 24-29-1 ATS) beat the Grizzlies 106-101 on January 23 and that one of the main reasons I like Memphis in this contest. The Grizzlies won six of their final eight games prior to the break, but the T-Wolves won three of their final four. While Minnesota has gone 7-3 ATS over their last 10, the Grizzlies are 11-4 ATS over their last 15 home contests – plus, they have revenge on their minds!

Golden State at L.A. Clippers 7:30 PM ET

The Warriors (48-4 SU, 34-19 ATS) won each of their final 10 games prior to the annual all-star break while going 6-4 ATS over the span.

The Clippers were pretty hot prior to the break in winning seven of their final nine games prior to the break, even though they were handed a 139-134 overtime loss against Boston in their final game before the break.

Still, the Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games against a team with a winning home record and a blistering 20-9-1 ATS in their last 30 road games. Conversely, the Clippers have gone just 1-4 ATS in their last five games against their Western Conference counterparts and an identical 1-4 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a winning road record.

Golden State has won four straight over the Clippers – and these two teams absolutely despise one another, giving the Warriors even more incentive to get the SU and ATS win.
