NBA Week 9 Rundown: Top Betting Matchups and Picks for this Weekend
Dallas Mavericks vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Saturday
The Dallas Mavericks have been struggling to find their rhythm as a team on a consistent basis recently, as it feels like Luka Doncic is stuck having to carry all the load by himself.
Dallas is 8-18-2 against the spread, whereas Cleveland is 16-11-2.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of the streakier teams in the league, as the combo of Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland has shown the potential of being a force.
Utah Jazz vs Milwaukee Bucks – Saturday
The Utah Jazz have earned back-to-back wins over the New Orleans Pelicans, as they continue to appear to be a team in a great position to make the playoffs despite coming into the season with little to no expectations.
Utah is 18-13 against the spread, whereas Milwaukee is 15-11-2.
The Milwaukee Bucks are one of the best teams in the league, led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, as he leads the attack for this team both offensively and defensively, putting him in the heart of the MVP conversation.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns – Saturday
The New Orleans Pelicans are one of the best teams in the NBA, but have lost their last two games to the Utah Jazz. With the season Zion Williamson is having though, this team is as elite as any.
New Orleans is 15-13 against the spread, whereas Phoenix is 15-14.
The Phoenix Suns got Devin Booker back, as they were able to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers in their last game.
This matchup is a rivalry in the making, so expect some chippiness from both sides in this one.
New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers – Sunday
The New York Knicks are red hot, as they’ve won five straight games heading into Friday. Julius Randle appears to be regaining his form as one of the best forwards in the league.
New York is 14-12-2 against the spread, whereas Indiana is 16-13.
The Indiana Pacers have been on a slide recently, as they’ve been dealing with some injuries and a few of their players appear to be struggling as well.
Brooklyn Nets vs Detroit Pistons – Sunday
The Brooklyn Nets are one of the hottest teams in the league, as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have found the right mix of scoring and getting their teammates involved.
Brooklyn is 13-15-1 against the spread, whereas Detroit is 15-12-3.
The Detroit Pistons remain one of the worst teams in the league, as Cade Cunningham is out for the season, but Killian Hayes has done a nice job picking up his slack.
