With the end of the 2024 NBA season now very much in sight, each and every game could have a direct impact on how successful every side is this term. Another busy midweek of action presents plenty of opportunity for punters and NBA betting apps, with the New Orleans Pelicans taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Sacramento Kings welcome the Dallas Mavericks and the lowly Washington Wizards battle with the Brooklyn Nets.  

New Orleans Pelicans vs Oklahoma City Thunder Best Bet

27th March – Smoothie King Center, New Orleans

Two of the top 5 teams in the West meet in what could be a classic in New Orleans, as the Pelicans take on the high-flying Thunder. For the Pelicans, this will be a chance to lay down a marker with the playoffs on the horizon and they are a franchise that are being closely monitored with many punters and NBA betting apps. This challenge against 2nd placed Oklahoma City Thunder will be a very big one, with the Thunder being viewed as potential NBA champions this season and they know that they need to keep putting points on the board. This should be a very good game, with the Thunder potentially having too much in the tank for the Pelicans.

Sacramento Kings vs Dallas Mavericks Best Bet

27th March – Golden 1 Center, Sacramento

Dallas Mavericks to win the match @ 1.95 (PlayUp)

Another pair of sides going well in the Western Conference will do battle here, as the Sacramento Kings take on the Dallas Mavericks. For the Kings, ticking along in pursuit of a top 6 spot will be their ultimate aim and recent performances have suggested that they have enough about them to challenge all the way in the post-season battle this term. Sat just behind them in the table is the Dallas Mavericks, one of the most dangerous sides in the NBA and they look to be finding form at the right time once again. This is the first of a double header between the sides and the Mavericks will be out to put down a marker here.

Washington Wizards vs Brooklyn Nets Best Bet

27th March – Capital One Arena, Washington

Washington Wizards to win the match @ 2.15 (BlueBet)

The Eastern Conference basement battle is intensifying, with the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets both enduring seasons to forget. For the Wizards, the 2024 campaign has been an underwhelming one but they are a side that that are always tracked with both domestic and international betting sites and building towards 2025 will be on their agenda here. Next up is the Brooklyn Nets, a team that have been seriously struggling of late, having lost 8 of their last 10 games. This will be a good game, with the Washington Wizards potentially having enough about them to get the job done.
