NBA Picks January 30

The NBA kicks off its week with eight exciting games featuring some of the most exciting teams in the league.

Let's check out the bets!

It should be an exciting matchup between the present and future of the Eastern Conference when the Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers face off. The Orlando Magic are 13th in the Eastern Conference, with a 19-31 overall record and a 6-18 road record. The Philadelphia 76ers have climbed to second in the Eastern Conference, going 32-16 through 48 games while owning a 19-7 home record.

The Orlando Magic are far from a strong two-way team, but they can get out and guard the three-point line and contain teams on the boards - holding teams to 34.8% from three (4th in the NBA) and just 32.2 rebounds per game (6th in the NBA). Over their last five games, Orlando have allowed their opponents 118.8 points per game on 50.1% from the field and 42.1% from deep. Philadelphia's defense is amongst the best in the NBA, allowing just 110.9 points (4th in the NBA) on 34.6% from three (2nd in the NBA).

Take the Sixers in this bout. While the Orlando Magic are long and energetic, their lack of efficiency on both ends of the court should be the reason for their loss. Philadelphia have now won seven games in a row, and should unsurprisingly push their streak to eight.

Sacramento Kings @ Minnesota Timberwolves

Spread: Sacramento Kings +0.5 (-110) @ UniBet NJ

Both the Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to improve their position in the Western Conference. The Kings currently rank third in the West, with a 27-21 overall record and an 11-10 road record. The Timberwolves are sixth in the West, with a 27-25 overall record and an 18-10 home record.

Sacramento are currently on a two-game losing streak, despite the fact that they're 7-3 over their last 10 games. Their offense hasn't been engaged over their last two games, scoring just 102.5 points per game on 46.5% from the field and 33.8% from three. On the other hand the Timberwolves have gone 4-1 over their last five games. They've held their opponents to 104.0 points on 43.1% from the field and 27.9% from three-point range.

The Kings lost their last game to the Timberwolves in their last meeting, but it was a tightly contested affair. Expect them to bounce back in this game, especially with their three-point shooting having been so poorly last time out. The Timberwolves are a pacey team, so it should suit Sacramento's comeback efforts nicely.

Toronto Raptors @ Phoenix Suns

Both the Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors are struggling to climb back up their respective conference ladders. The Toronto Raptors are coming off of a win, having now gone 2-1 over their current road trip. The Phoenix Suns are coming off of a win of their own, which has been especially helpful given their injury situation.

The Raptors' play has been up and down through their current road trip. They've been averaging 117.7 points on 49.0% from the field and 33.0% from deep, but have also allowed 109.7 points on 52.3% from the field and 38.4% from the three-point range. The Suns have found a rhythm over their last five games, going 4-1 over that run. They've been able to hold opponents to just 106.2 points per game on 41.7% from the field and 33.8% from the three-point range.

Toronto enter this game without key two-way player OG Anunoby, on top of the fact that they're far from one of the league's better offensive teams. The Suns should come out with a victory in this game but expect it to be a hard-fought affair. It'll be a defense versus defense affair, but the Raptors are just lacking in the shooting department to find a win.
