Clash Of The Titans – The Best NBA Betting Matchups This Weekend

Posted by Matthew Forrester on 2/26/2016 6:38:24 PM

Looking for the best NBA betting matchups this weekend? Then we’ve got just the thing for you. Check out these four games which are sure to pique your interest. And the Sunday chaser should help you clean up as well. Enjoy and good luck.

San Antonio Spurs -5.5 over HOUSTON ROCKETS (Saturday, 8pm EST)

The Spurs have had Houston’s number for a long time. They’re 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS when playing the muddled Rockets in their past 6 NBA betting matchups. San Antonio remains a touch-and-go bet especially on the road. A 6-1 SU and 3-4 ATS record in their last seven away games might scream “warning”, but that’s largely because of inflated betting lines.

They won’t have to deal with such a hefty margin against Houston. It’s also a big boost that the Spurs have run right past Utah and Sacramento in their past two games, winning by a pair of +18.0 point differentials. So don’t overthink this one. Houston is a blithering mess whether the administration wants to admit it or not.

Golden State Warriors -2.5 over OKC THUNDER (Saturday, 8:30pm EST)

These two juggernauts met earlier this month, and the Warriors took it 116-108 against a GS -7.5 NBA betting line. To put it simply, Golden State has pretty much owned the Thunder since their recent ascension. They’re 3-1 SU and ATS in their last 4 meetings.

The two pronged attack of Oklahoma City might work in a seven game thriller, but it’s not wise for them to show their entire hand against Golden State in the regular season. I’m always rooting for Durant, but betting against Golden State is financial suicide. The Warriors have been one of the best NBA betting teams this entire year when leveraging against the spread. The Thunder have been the absolute worst, ranking as the 30th worst bet out there.

Orlando Magic over NEW YORK KNICKS (Sunday, 7:30pm EST)

Wrap up your NBA betting weekend with a sly take on the travelling Magic show. The Knicks are a very fun team, but they’re also a dismal 1-9 SU and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games. I wouldn’t touch them with a ten foot pole.

Everyone envisions the Knicks as this really fun team with dynamic players and lots of scoring, but in reality that kind of brand belongs to Orlando. The Magic have a ton of young athletes that are seriously under appreciated by the oddsmakers. Even with just four wins in their last 10 games, they’ve ripped off a 7-3 ATS record and remain one of the best NBA betting picks you can make during the weekend. They’ll get phenomenal value on the line against a major market play like New York.
