Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, February 26th (2022)

Feb 26, 2022 - 3:20 PM

Today there are plenty of value betting plays in the NBA. There is only a handful of games going on, but those games have great value. The NBA has a long season, and when it comes to betting on games, bettors need to look for betting value across the entire season. The Suns, Cavs, Grizzlies, and Heat have all had fantastic value this season. That is something to look into in tonight’s games. What teams have consistently been great value plays all season long.

Memphis Grizzlies Moneyline (+105 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Grizzlies have been dominant since Ja Morant came back from his injury. They have crept into the top five teams in the NBA. They have the depth and youth to push late into the game. That is hard for a lot of teams. The Chicago Bulls have been great this season. When it comes to the top teams in the NBA, they have struggled. They have failed to beat Philadelphia, Phoenix, Memphis, and Miami. The Grizzlies are winning against those same teams. They are doing so consistently. The Grizzlies being an underdog is a great value play. 

Washington Wizards +8 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

I would typically bet on Cleveland to win this game and cover. Tonight is a different story with Garland, Rondo, LeVert all questionable to play. That will force the Cavs to ask for minutes out of guys who do not play much, and that creates a mismatch that will be tough for them to overcome. The Wizards are not the same Wizards we saw at the beginning of the season. They are missing Beal and have traded away impact players. They do have guards who can score the ball. Kuzma and Caldwell-Pope can consistently score, and that will allow them to stay in this game. 

Miami Heat -7 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Miami Heat have been a go-to this season. They are great at covering the spread and honestly are only getting better at it as the season progresses. Both the Heat and Spurs are on the tail end of back-to-back games. The difference is that the Spurs had a long overtime game and traveled from Washington, DC to Miami. That makes this game a tough matchup for the Spurs. They are getting better as a team, but they are traveling and playing one of the most well-rounded teams in the NBA. The Spurs do not have the depth that Miami has either. That gives Miami the advantage in this game.
