The Blazers have played much better since signing Carmelo Anthony, but they get a big test on Friday against a Los Angeles team led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The Lakers have the best record in the NBA, but this is not a great spot for Los Angeles, as they are playing their third game in four days. Let’s look at Friday night’s matchup and NBA picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Anthony Davis trade has been as much of a difference-maker as advertised for the Los Angeles Lakers, as the star center has helped lift the team to the best record in the NBA. Davis will face off against his former team this week when the Lakers hit the road to play the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans got a decent haul of young talent and draft picks back for Davis but they have been hit hard by injuries early in the season. New Orleans would love to knock off Davis and the Lakers, but Los Angeles will still be the clear favorite in this matchup. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Portland Trail Blazers expect to be one of the main contenders in the Western Conference this season but are off to a slow start.

Milwaukee entered the season as the team to beat in the East and has gotten off to a nice start. This is a matchup between tw...

  • BookMaker.eu The Golden State Warriors’ dynasty is no more. Free agent defections and injuries have turned Golden State from the perennial title favorite to a bottom-dweller early in the season, and it doesn’t seem like things are going to get better any time soon.

  • BookMaker.eu The Los Angeles Lakers might be a favorite to win the Western Conference and the Larry O’Brien Trophy now that they have Anthony Davis alongside LeBron James.

The Lakers were one of several teams to make a splash during the offseason getting all kinds of attention for their earth-shaking acquisition of The Brow. Another team that overhauled i... 

  • BookMaker.eu Many believe the balance of power in the Western Conference and the Pacific Division has shifted down south. The Los Angeles Clippers with their prized off-season acquisitions have supplanted the Golden State Warriors as the favorite to win the NBA title in 2020. The Clips have never been to a conference final let alone a championship series, so there is some ground to make up. And the Dubs aren’t going to relinquish their throne so easily. Despite their losses and injuries, the Warriors still t...

  • BookMaker.eu The Utah Jazz hasn’t been a true championship contender since the days of John Stockton and Karl Malone, but the hype is growing in Salt Lake City. The first step on a path to title contention would be winning the Northwest Division, and Utah has been instituted as the favorite to do so in the 2019-20 season.

  • BookMaker.eu The Houston Rockets have always been willing to be bold, and that was the case once again this offseason when GM Daryl Morey made a blockbuster trade for star point guard Russell Westbrook. By teaming him with James Harden, the Rockets unquestionably have two of the best individual players in the NBA. The question now is how they work together on the court. Houston has by far the most talent in the Southwest Division and is thus the favorite, and it will be interesting to see if anyone else can give them a run for their money. ...

Milwaukee has much bigger goals this season but the first step will be wrappi... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Southeast Division might not have a great team among it this season, but there are a few with intriguing rosters.

He joins a roster of good players, and Miami will aim to hold off foes like the Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks to win the Southeast Division. It will be interesting to see which t... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Eastern Conference is seen as the little brother in 2019-20, as most of the best NBA players are in the West this year. However, there is a pretty impressive division in the East and that is the Atlantic Division. The defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors reside there, but they won’t be the favorites to win it after the offseason departure of Kawhi Leonard.
