NBA Betting: Hollywood, South Beach To Host Marquee Matchups Sunday

NBA Betting GamesWith the March Madness betting picks tournament in full swing this weekend, the NBA may not get the same attention in the headlines that it is has grown accustom to over the past couple of months, but there are at least a handful of games this weekend that are worth paying attention to. Los Angeles will be home to another day-night doubleheader with the Clippers hosting the Detroit Pistons in the afternoon and the Lakers hosting the Utah Jazz later in the evening. Whether or not Hollywood can take the spotlight away from an intriguing matchup in South Beach is another story altogether, as Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic visit the Miami Heat.

Detroit Pistons @ Los Angeles Clippers
Sunday, 1:30 PM ET

The fact that Lob City can actually hold its own as part of a doubleheader bill along with the Lakers is a tribute to how far they have come this season, even if they are playing the Pistons.

The tandem of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul has lived up to all sports betting expectations, and with a veteran cast that includes Chauncey Billups and Mo Williams helping to form a strong supporting cast, Clippers’ fans are talking about an extended playoff run. The focus for Los Angeles down the stretch will have to be on continuing to develop that chemistry and familiarity with the likes of DeAndre Jordan continuing to grow at both ends of the floor, and Griffin really becoming a true star in this league. The Clippers should be able to handle Detroit at home, but then again, let’s not rule out the possibility of this one being close after what the Pistons did to the Lakers last week.

Orlando Magic @ Miami Heat
Sunday, 7:00 PM ET

The Magic made the decision to remain committed to their relationship with NBA All Star center Dwight Howard, and while they run the risk of getting burned at the end of the season and losing him for nothing, Orlando still holds out hope that something can get done this year. That means there will be even more urgency in winning now, and winning big games such as this one against a team that probably only inspired Howard to want to leave Orlando even more so he could become part of an elite team. Miami has played very well at home this season, and even if the Magic are firing on all cylinders with Howard in the lineup, they don’t have the firepower to keep pace with the Heat.

Utah Jazz @ Los Angeles Lakers
Sunday, 9:30 PM ET

Watching the Lakers rally together to come back late against the Boston Celtics and then on the road at the Memphis Grizzlies provided a taste of what this team is capable of and a reminder that they can’t be overlooked. The win over the Grizzlies improved Los Angeles’ record to 3-0 since a closed-door meeting to discuss improvements at the offensive end of the floor and working harder as a team, and Sunday’s game against the Jazz represents yet another opportunity for one of the best home teams in the association to go out and get it done as the pay head favorites.
