NBA Betting Angle: Wager on hot NBA teams that need to win to make the playoffs.
In the Eastern Conference standings, the New York Knicks are the team that is making some noise. They recently took over the eighth spot which is the last slot that will be eligible for the playoffs. They are tied with the Atlanta Hawks, so it is important that they keep winning if they want to hold on to that spot. Unlike the Hawks, the Knicks are hot and have won three straight games. The Knicks also have some high profile games coming up. Play on the Knicks against the Miami Heat on Sunday.
The Hawks on the other hand are slumping and have just won 3 of the last ten games. Because of that the Hawks are a fade this week, especially on Sunday when they go up against the Indiana Pacers who also need to win. Play against the Hawks against the Pacers.
In the Western Conference there are three teams vying for two spots as the Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and the Phoenix Suns are fighting to be one of the teams that will make the post season. The hottest team of the bunch is the Suns who have won seven of the last ten games, but the Mavericks are the team to watch. They have a n easier schedule with upcoming games against the Sacramento Kings and the Utah Jazz. Play on the Mavericks in both games against the Jazz and the Kings. The Grizzlies are just coming off a road trip and have a big game on Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs, which means they will be looking past the Denver Nuggets on Friday night, who are a team they recently beat. Play against the Grizzlies on Friday night against the Nuggets.
