It has been a week since we have seen NBA action, unless, of course, you count the All-Star Game. The break is coming to an end and the league will return for the second half of the season on Thursday night. It’s a pretty busy schedule, so there are a lot of games to choose from when looking to wager on basketball. We have already made some parlay picks for the next few days in the NBA, but now we are going to turn our attention to the point total. We have a few Over/Under NBA Betting picks here for you guys, so let’s get right to it.
O/U Picks for February 24th Matches | NBA Betting
Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets – OVER 213
Two teams heading in very different directions hook up in an important Eastern Conference game. The Boston Celtics lost to close out the first half of the season, but they have still managed to win 9 of their last 10. The Nets are sinking fast and now find themselves in the play-in section of the conference standings. They have had some serious injury issues to deal with, so they will be hoping to get healthy ASAP. As far as the point total goes, 5 of the last 6 meetings between the Celtics and the Nets have gone OVER.
Memphis Grizzlies at Minnesota Timberwolves – OVER 239
If the season was to end today, both of these teams would find themselves in the postseason. The Grizzlies are sitting pretty in 3rd in the Western Conference and are on a run that has seen them win 8 of their last 10 games. The Timberwolves are in the play-in section at the moment, but they have been playing well of late, going 7-3 in their last 10. Both teams have been trending in the OVER of late, plus 6 of their last 10 meetings have gone that route.
Phoenix Suns at Oklahoma City Thunder – OVER 213 ½
The second half of the season is going to be an interesting one for the Western Conference-leading Suns, who are going to be without Chris Paul for the majority of that time. They have a big lead at the top right now and are surely good enough to stay there even without Paul in the lineup. A game against the struggling Thunder, who have just 18 wins on the season may be just what the doctor ordered. The Suns have seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 6 games, with 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams also going that way.
Golden State Warriors at Portland Trail Blazers – OVER 223 ½
The Warriors looked like a team that needed a break, as they were on a 2-game losing streak prior to the All-Star break. They are still 2nd in the Western Conference, so it’s certainly not all doom and gloom in Oakland. The Trail Blazers would probably have been happier not to take the week off, as they were rolling prior to the break, winning 4 in a row. In terms of the point total, there is one trend that really stands out, which is that the OVER has hit in 14 of Golden State’s last 18 visits to Portland.
