NBA Betting Predictions – March 5th, 2013Yesterday’s record: 1-1 This month’s record: 7-2 Last month’s record: 21-20 January’s record: 34-42 December’s record: 41-45 November’s record: 36-20 Season to date record: 139-129
After the Magic won yesterday evening I was thinking it was a mistake to pick against the same 2 teams 2 days in a row but then the Bobcats lost by 17. I’ll take a 1-1 day after I thought they were risky moves. It’s a light schedule in the NBA tonight but I like 2 of the 3 games being played.
Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Boston Celtics have won 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4 to improve to 31-27 on the season. They have played 6 of their last 8 games on the road and still have to play 4 of their next 5 away from home. The Celtics are 3-2 on the road against their own division. The Philadelphia 76ers were defeated 90-87 at Washington on Sunday. The loss was their 8th in the last 9 games. The Sixers 4-2 at home versus their own division. This is the 4th and final meeting of the season between Boston and Philadelphia. The 76ers lead the season series 2 games to 1. The Celtics have had trouble in Philly recently as they’ve lost 4 in a row dating back to the 2010-2011 season. I believe that struggle will continue tonight. Take the 76ers +2.5.

Denver Nuggets @ Sacramento Kings
The Denver Nuggets have won 5 in a row and 15 of their last 19 to move to a season-best 17 games above .500 with a 39-22 record. They’ve won 2 of their last 3 road games. The Nuggets are 3-4 on the road versus the Pacific division. The Sacramento Kings picked up their 2nd win in the last 3 with a resounding 119-83 victory at home versus Charlotte on Sunday night. They have won 3 of their last 4 home games. The Kings are 3-4 at home versus the Northwest division. This is the 3rd of 4 meetings this season between Denver and Sacramento. The Nuggets lead the season series 2-0. The Kings have been trounced by 25 and 28 points against the Nuggets this season and I see no reason why that won’t happen again. Take the Nuggets -5.
