OKBET NBA Betting Odds and Picks: Suns vs. Clippers & Trail Blazers vs. Lakers

This Sunday will feature seven more games in the ongoing NBA season. Even though this weekend’s schedule doesn’t feature the most games, the NBA experts at The Action Network have nonetheless uncovered a couple of best bets that are worth keeping an eye on. Chris Baker is targeting the Trail Blazers’ game against the Lakers, while Andrew O’Connor-Watts is focusing on the Suns’ game against the Clippers. See their recommendations and accompanying analysis down below.

NBA Odds & Picks

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers

  • Pick: Lakers -3.5
  • Book: OKBET
  • Tipoff: 3:40 p.m. ET
  • TV: NBA League Pass

Chris Baker: On Sunday afternoon, I’m going to put my faith in the Lakers to pick up their first win of the 2022-2023 season and cover the spread. The Lakers have struggled to start the season, going 0-2 so far, but they have played fairly well against two of the finest teams in the NBA. I did not have a very high opinion of this Lakers squad during the previous season and I still do not believe in them this year, but I believe that this price is too high today.

The additions of Josh Hart and Jerami Grant to the Trail Blazers roster during the summer led to an increase in the team’s overall quality, but it will take some time for the players to become familiar with one another and their roles on the team. Even though Grant is a capable defender for LeBron, the Trail Blazers don’t really have that many other players that can take care of LeBron.

One might say the same thing about Nurkic and Anthony Davis in the post. Drew Eubanks will receive the assignment to guard AD if Nurkic gets into any kind of foul trouble, and AD will come out on top of that contest.

Patrick Beverley has had a poor start to the season, but he thrives in the types of matchups where his team expects him to focus on pressuring and irritating a talented guard like Damian Lillard. In these types of matchups, Beverley thrives. Both he and Russell Westbrook are good matches for Anfernee Simons and Lillard on the basketball court.

The Portland Trail Blazers’ bench isn’t very spectacular, especially now that Gary Payton II and Trendon Watford are both sidelined with injuries. The Los Angeles Lakers should have an advantage with their second unit now that wing Troy Brown is set to return today.

Last but not least, Portland just came off a victory in overtime over the Phoenix Suns, who are a very talented team and had four of their five starters play over 40 minutes. Since the Lakers haven’t played a game in two days, it is reasonable to expect that they are well rested and have had plenty of time to get ready for this clash.

You can anticipate the Lakers to enter this game with a sense of urgency and to achieve their first win of the season while also covering the spread.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Clippers

  • Pick: Under 219.5
  • Book: OKBET
  • Tipoff: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV: NBA TV

Andrew O’Connor Watts believes that a total of 219.5 is excessively high for two teams that lean toward the under in such a significant way. Over the course of their most recent 10 matches, the total has gone under the majority of the time, with a difference of -11.2 points on average.

During the course of the previous season, these two clubs met a total of four times, and each of those games ended in a draw. Both clubs combined for a total of 205.5 points per contest, which resulted in an average differential of -14.25 points.

The Suns were defeated by the Clippers by a score of 109-113 in their most recent meeting in Los Angeles. That was the only game that went over 219 during the previous season, but the total for that game was still lower than 223.

When these two teams have competed against one another in Los Angeles over the course of the last six games, five of those games finished with a total score of under. But even if you don’t believe me about the head-to-head tendencies, there are other trends involving particular teams that you might be interested in.

In the previous eight games played by the Clippers, the under has won 1-7 of those games, while the Suns have won 2-5 of their previous seven games when it comes to the total number of points scored.

This final tally of 217.5 is satisfactory to me.
