Last Updated on February 2, 2023 3:04 pm by Erwin Noguera

The NBA reaches its 16th week of games and the best teams begin to distance themselves in the rankings, reaching an important role in this phase of the competition. Celtics and 76ers lead the Eastern Conference, while Nuggets and Grizzlies are at the top of the Western Conference.

Bubby Hield, Anfernee Simons, and Stephen Curry remain the top long-distance scorers, with 197, 167, and 165 points scored, respectively. James Harden is the big leader in assists, while Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the league in defensive rebounds.

Eight games will be played today and we’ve highlighted the following to analyze and provide you with a prediction: 76ers vs. Orlando Magic, Brooklyn Nets vs. Los Angeles Lakers, and Trailblazers vs. Hawks.

NBA Weekly Preview 16 – 76ers vs. Orlando Magic – Free Pick and Betting odds

When: 

Monday, January 30th – 07:00 pm ET at the Wells Fargo Center

Moneyline odds: 

76ers -400

Orlando Magic +320

Where Can I Watch it? 

NBA League Pass

In second place in the Eastern Conference, the 76ers have won their last seven NBA games and are chasing the Celtics, who have 36 wins to date.

Magic has already been worse in the standings, but the last two defeats have again shown the difficulty that the team has in maintaining a winning streak. In the last match against the Bulls, Moritz Wagner scored 27 points, but even so, the Orlando team was not able to approach their rivals.

Playing at home and with an important series of victories, the 76ers are the favorites to win this confrontation.

If you put $100 into the 76ers’, you could get $25 back for a total payout of $125.

NBA Weekly Preview 16 – Nets vs. Lakers – Free Pick and Betting odds

When: 

Monday, January 30th – 07:30 pm ET at the Barclays Center

Moneyline odds: 

Nets -400

Lakers +320

Where Can I Watch it? 

NBA League Pass

The Lakers are going through a disappointing season, adding many losses and moving away from the conference leaders with each new round. The Nets are going through a phase of instability, alternating between victories and defeats, but they are still in a good position in the standings.

The last 20 clashes between these two teams showed a great balance: 10 wins for each side. In the 5 most recent games, the Lakers won 3 and lost 2, which means we could see some surprises in this game.

Despite the better results of the Lakers in this confrontation, the moment is favorable for the Nets and, therefore, we believe in their victory.

If you put $100 into the Nets’, you could get $25 back for a total payout of $125.

NBA Weekly Preview 16 – Trail Blazers vs. Hawks – Free Pick and Betting odds

When: 

Monday, January 30th – 10:00 pm ET at the Moda Center

Moneyline odds: 

Trail Blazers -135

Hawks +110

Where Can I Watch it? 

NBA League Pass

The last NBA game on Monday is usually busy, and if the writing holds up, we will have a very disputed game between the Trail Blazers and the Hawks. Hawks and Trail Blazers are not standout teams in their conferences, as both come into this clash after losing the last game.

In the last five games between them, the Hawks have won three. The Trail Blazers have won just 23 games so far, which leaves the Portland team in 12th place in the Western Conference.

Slight favoritism is being given to the Trail Blazers for playing in front of their home crowd. We believe in the victory of the hosts.

If you put $100 into Trail Blazers’, you could get $74 back for a total payout of $174.

NBA Weekly Update 16 – New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat

When:

Thursday, February 2 at 7:30 pm ET at the Madison Square Garden

Moneyline odds:

New York Knicks +107

Miami Heat -131

Where Can I Watch it?

NBA League Pass

The New York Knicks come from suffering two falls against the Brooklyn Nets (122-115) and the Los Angeles Lakers (123-129), which knocked them out of the playoffs and put them in the play-ins. They are seventh, 2 games behind the sixth, Miami Heat, precisely their rival this Thursday. Julius Randle has two good games, with consecutive double-doubles and 4 in the last 5, but the rest of the quintet must support him.

Miami Heat comes on an upward curve that has put it in the Eastern Conference playoff spots. They just beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 97-100 and have 4 wins in their last 5 games. Jimmy Butler continues to lead the team’s offense and has scored above his average for three consecutive games, while Bam Adebayo achieved another double-double.

New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat Betting Pick: New York Knicks

NBA Weekly Update 16 – Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Memphis Grizzlies

When:

Thursday, February 2 at 7:30 pm ET at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse

Moneyline odds:

Cleveland Cavaliers -250 

Memphis Grizzlies +198

Where Can I Watch it?

NBA League Pass

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been very unstable lately and have gone 7 games alternating wins and losses, without achieving a consecutive one. This Tuesday they lost to the Miami Heat (97-100) and dropped to fifth place in the Eastern Conference, although they still have a 3.5-game advantage with seventh, so they are calm but they cannot rest on their laurels.

The Memphis Grizzlies are still in a big downturn and this Wednesday they suffered their sixth loss in their last 7 games. It was at home against the Portland Trail Blazers (112-122) and now they are 3 games away from the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference. Ja Morant continues to shine and he lacked only 1 rebound to achieve his third consecutive triple-double.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Memphis Grizzlies Betting Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers

NBA Weekly Update 16 – Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Pelicans

When:

Thursday, February 2 at 8:30 pm ET at the American Airlines Center

Moneyline odds:

Dallas Mavericks -188 

New Orleans Pelicans +151

Where Can I Watch it?

NBA League Pass

The Dallas Mavericks have suffered a great fall and are very close to leaving the playoff positions, however, they were able to defeat the Detroit Pistons (111-105) in their last game and remained in the fifth position of the Western Conference, but a loss removes them from this group. Luka Doncic returned after his absence against the Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz and was phenomenal, scoring 53 points.

New Orleans continues to increase its losing streak and already has 9 consecutive losses. This Tuesday they lost to the Denver Nuggets (122 – 113) and dropped to tenth place in the Western Conference, being very close to leaving the play-in. Zion Williamson is still out due to injury and the team has not been able to cover his absence, so the team will likely continue to fall down the table.

Dallas Mavericks vs. New Orleans Pelicans Betting Pick: Dallas Mavericks

NBA Weekly Update 16 – Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Clippers

When:

Thursday, February 2 at 10:00 pm ET at the Fiserv Forum

Moneyline odds:

Milwaukee Bucks -185 

Los Angeles Clippers +149

Where Can I Watch it?

NBA League Pass

Milwaukee Bucks has 5 wins in a row and are looking for the leadership of the Eastern Conference. Giannis Antetokounmpo has 5 consecutive double-doubles and continues to show that he is one of the best players in the NBA and wants to lead his team to a new title after the one achieved in 2021. His main enemies are his conference rivals, the Boston Celtics, who lead by 2.5 games.

The Los Angeles Clippers are also in a good moment and have 6 victories in their last 7 games, positioning themselves in fourth place in the Western Conference, but they must continue winning to maintain that spot in the playoffs. Last Tuesday they beat the Chicago Bulls 103-108 with a great night from their dynamic duo, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. The team needs both in perfect shape if they want to beat the Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Clippers Betting Pick: Milwaukee Bucks
