NBA Betting This Weekend

NBA Betting This Weekend: The weekend was made for the NBA. We’ve got great NBA action all weekend long. As the playoffs get closer, every game gets more and more important. This is the time when everything counts that much more. So, you’ve got to win. You’ve got to win now. The phrase “go big or go home” is a cliché, yes. But, it’s a cliché because it’s right for any number of reasons. At our site, you can find all of the great NBA betting you want on the big games this weekend (as well as the rest of the regular season). 

NBA Betting on the Contenders

There are a few games coming up this weekend that could be epic playoff series. Before they become that, of course, they’re the big games of the coming weekend. The teams that are ahead want to stay that way, they want to stay hot and keep doing what they’re doing so that they go into the playoffs with a “full head of steam.” It’s too late to slack off now. 

To that end, the Sixers play the Bucks. It’s very, very easy to see this coming up again soon in a few weeks as the Eastern Conference Final. Neither of these teams have won a championship for a long time, so there’s a lot behind this matchup. The Bucks’ window is still open, and it feels like the Sixers window has really just opened. Is this a preview of the Eastern Finals? And if so, who do you have? 

In the West, there are playoff series to come type games ahead as well. For example, the Lakers are playing Dallas. This very well could be a matchup in a few weeks, too. The Lakers may have a better record, but, when the games really count, the records really can get thrown out of the window. Will the Lakers continue to cement their claim to another back to back? Or, will the Mavs begin to shut them down? 

Elimination Games 

Some games can feel a bit like “elimination games” before the playoffs ever really start. There’s a good reason for that. If you don’t have a good enough record now, you aren’t going to the playoffs. Such a game occurs this weekend in the West, between the Spurs and the Pelicans. The Spurs are just out for the playoff picture with the Pelicans nipping on their, well, spurs. The winner of this game might not get that much closer to getting into the playoffs, but the loser is definitely going to be that much further out. 

The teams that, as of today, are in position to make the playoffs want to stay that way, too. For example, just ahead of the Spurs are the Grizzlies. They’re only a half game up, so their lead is anything but stable. Just a few games ahead of them are the Trailblazers. This game is going to be a tight one between two teams that don’t just want to make the Western playoffs but do something when they’re in them. Who do you have? 

Sunday Games 

Of course, the NBA is all about Sunday. With the NFL season over, the country turns its eyes to the NBA for Sunday. That’s where we’ve got a very possible NBA Finals matchup, as the Suns play the Nets. These two teams could meet with a lot on the line in several weeks, but they meet now with a chance to better cement their position in the playoffs. 

Speaking of potential playoff series coming up in the East, the Bucks play the Hawks this Sunday, too. This should be a great game between two high flying teams. While there may not be time for the Hawks to catch the Bucks in the regular season, there’s plenty of time to play this game, learn from it, and prepare for the playoffs. That’s what you can do with your online NBA betting, too. Good luck to you all season long from us at BetNow!
