The end of the NBA regular season is almost here, and we are starting to see the opening round matchups take shape. In the Eastern Conference, all the playoff and play-in spots have already been filled. There are still some open spots in the West, so still some things to figure out over the final few days of the season. Time is running out to make some more money on the regular season, so let’s see if we can put together some winning NBA Betting picks. We will also have some parlay picks for Wednesday coming your way, but for now, let’s focus on some point total plays.
O/U Picks for this Week Matches | NBA Week 25 Betting
Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls – OVER 221
Both of these teams will be in the playoffs, but where they will be seeded remains to be seen. The Celtics are currently sitting in the #2 spot after going 8-2 in their last 10 games, while the Bulls are in the #6 spot. It is a very tight battle in the Eastern Conference, so there could yet be some movement before all is said and done. This is a matchup that very often trends toward the under when these teams meet in Chicago, but I am going against that trend for this game. In their current run of great form, the Celtics have seen the OVER hit in 8 of their last 9. As for the Bulls, they have seen the OVER hit in 5 straight games after a double-digit loss at home.
Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks – OVER 234
There really isn’t that much left for either of these teams to play for, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this turn into a wide-open offensive tilt. The Washington Wizards are officially eliminated from playoff contention, while the Hawks already know that they will be part of the play-in tournament. For them, it is about finishing the regular season on a high note so that they go into that play-in game with some momentum. Atlanta has won 7 of their last 10, so they are doing things right in the late going. 4 of the last 5 meetings between the Hawks and the Wizards have gone OVER the point total, so let’s go with that again.
Phoenix Suns at LA Clippers – OVER 226
Given that the Suns have clinched the #1 seed in the Western Conference and have begun resting some of their key players, I understand that this might be seen as a bit of a risky bet. The LA Clippers have already punched their ticket to the play-in tournament and will be looking to see how they stack up against the best team in the league, as they are likely to be facing the #2 seed if they can make it out of the play-in game. The Suns come into this one as a bit of a surprising underdog, and they have seen the OVER hit in 5 of the last 6 games they started as a dog. The Clippers are 3-0-1 O/U in their last 4 games versus a team with a road record of .600 or better.
