2013 NBA Betting – NBA Weekend Picks For Games On Sunday, April 14

Game 1: Cleveland Cavaliers @ Philadelphia 76ers – Sunday, April 14

No matter which betting software you depend on each NBA season, you will probably encounter a number of games in which it is hard to separate two teams from each other, given the circumstances. When betting sports in an NBA-specific situation, you need to make specific realizations about the point in time when two teams meet. Has something occurred in recent days to suggest a lean toward one team over and against the other? In this game, you are faced with competing tensions. On one hand, Cleveland just regained the services of Kyrie Irving, who is playing the last week of the season after coming back from injury. Irving very nearly led Cleveland to a road win at Indiana on Tuesday night, propelling the Cavaliers to a 20-point advantage they squandered down the stretch. On the other hand, Cleveland did lose that game, which means that the team might very well be depressed and deflated as it wobbles to the finish line of its season. This latter reality probably will weigh on the minds of Cleveland’s players. Philadelphia, at home, might be a bit more energized and ready to perform at a high level. Take the Sixers on Sunday evening.

Game 2: Portland Trail Blazers @ Denver Nuggets – Sunday, April 14

A smart sports bet will make sure that a game does not involve a “trick question” or any kind of scenario in which the sensible pick could actually turn out to be a flawed one. However, when looking at bet online reviews, you have to think that the game between the Trail Blazers and the Nuggets points to a Denver victory. Yes, there’s one reason to pick Portland here: The Nuggets will be without Danilo Gallinari for the rest of the season due to an injury. The Nuggets’ rotation is undergoing necessary re-adjustments, and that could throw the lineup out of whack. However, when this game starts, Denver will have spent over a week’s worth of games dealing with this tweaked lineup. The Nuggets should be comfortable. What’s more is that they’re playing at home, where they hardly ever lose. Furthermore, Denver has incentive to win this game, since it is trying to get the third seed in the Western Conference. Take the Nuggets here and don’t sweat your selection.

Game 3: Sacramento Kings @ Houston Rockets – Sunday, April 14

When you realize that the Houston Rockets – though safely in the playoffs – are fighting with the Golden State Warriors for the sixth seed in the Western Conference, this game ceases to be meaningless for coach Kevin McHale’s team. Houston wants to get the sixth spot so that it does not have to face San Antonio or Oklahoma City (the top two seeds in the West) in the first round of the postseason. This motivational reality should carry Houston to victory against a mediocre foe.
