NBA Predictions and free picks for week 3
NBA Wednesday night is packed with 13 games on the schedule. Below is a quick preview with the latest lines spread and my prediction for each game. As the odds constantly change, remember to check back here at Wonder Punter for the latest spread up until tip-off.
Wednesday Nov. 20
Toronto Raptors (4-7) @ Philadelphia 76ers (5-7) 11/20- 7:00PM EST
Line: TOR -3.5
Both teams are in a two-game skid…. Raptors in a win on the road.
Miami Heat (7-3) @ Orlando Magic (4-6) 11/20- 7:00PM EST
Line: MIA -8.0
Heat playing in a second in two nights, but should still be able to come away with the ‘W.’
Bet On NBA
Indiana Pacers (9-1) @ New York Knicks (3-6) 11/20- 7:00PM EST
Line: IND -4.5
Knicks are a mess right now and Carmelo is frustrated. The second of two in two nights for NY against the NBA’s best.
Brooklyn Nets (3-7) @ Charlotte Bobcats (5-6) 11/20- 7:00PM EST
Line: BRK -3.5
Nets hit by injuries, but I like them in this one.
Washington Wizards (2-7) @ Cleveland Cavaliers (4-7) 11/20- 7:00PM EST
Line: CLE 1.5
Disappointing start for the Wizards so far… and on the road for this one.
Detroit Pistons (3-6) @ Atlanta Hawks (6-4) 11/20- 7:30PM EST
Line: ATL -5.0
Back-to-back games for both teams but Hawks at home for this one.
Utah Jazz (1-11) @ New Orleans Pelicans (4-6) 11/20- 8:00PM EST
Line: NOR -8.0
Pelicans will be well rested for the Jazz who begin a road trip.
PICK: New Orleans
Portland Trailblazers (9-2) @ Milwaukee Bucks (2-7) 11/20- 8:00PM EST
Line: POR -4.0
Bucks without two of their best players and Blazers playing well.
Los Angeles Clippers (7-4) @ Minnesota Timberwolves (7-4) 11/20- 8:00PM EST
Line: LAC -1.5
T’Wolves in a second of a back-to-back. At home but edge to Clips.
Boston Celtics (4-7) @ San Antonio Spurs (9-1) 11/20- 8:30PM EST
Line: SAS -15.0
Spurs will be well rested for the Celtics who play in Houston the night before.
PICK: San Antonio
Sacramento Kings (2-7) @ Phoenix Suns (5-4) 11/20- 9:00PM EST
Line: PHO -5.0
A home and home for these two teams in two nights.
Houston Rockets (7-4) @ Dallas Mavericks (7-4) 11/20- 9:30PM EST
Line: DAL -4.0
Houston in a second in a back-to-back, but short trip to Dallas. I like them in this one.
Memphis Grizzles (6-5) @ Golden State (8-3) 11/20- 10:30PM EST
Grizzles in the middle of a road trip against a tough Warriors team.
PICK: Golden State
