August 2nd NBA Betting Picks

Brooklyn Nets (-3) vs Washington Wizards (-110)

There is no better way to start a slate of games than with a win. This pick should get the day off on the right foot. The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a 10-point loss in their first game. The team is without may of their top players, but the group they did bring to the bubble should be able to get by the Washington Wizards. The Wizards lost their first game to the Phoenix Suns and will need a particularly impressive performance from Rui Hachimura to cover this spread.

The Play – Brooklyn Nets (-3). 1 Unit to Win .91 Units.

Dallas Mavericks (-6.5) vs Phoenix Suns (-110)

We saw the true capabilities of the Dallas Mavericks in the first three-quarters of their bubble-opening game against the Houston Rockets. The Mavs were unable to finish out the game on the same high note. Look for Dallas to flip that script today against the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are coming off a win against the Wizards, but today’s game should prove to be much more difficult. A big night from Luka Dončić and Kristaps Porziņģis should have the Mavs poised to bounce back from the disappointment of their opening loss.

The Play – Dallas Mavericks (-6.5). 1 Unit to Win .91 Units.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Points/Rebounds/Assists Over 54.5 (-110)

Giannis Antetokounmpo is coming off a very impressive performance in his opening game against the Boston Celtics. More of the same should be in order today for Giannis against the Houston Rockets. In the Rockets’ first game they won a barn-burner against the Mavs. If the Rockets play as much defense today as they did in their opener, Giannis should have many chances to produce big numbers for the Milwaukee Bucks. The Rockets do not have a player that, on paper, matches up very well when it comes to defending Giannis on the offensive end.

The Play – Giannis Antetokounmpo Pts/Rebs/Asts OVER 54.5. 1 Unit to Win .91 Units.
