Friday night’s NBA betting action pits the Boston Celtics against the Philadelphia 76ers in an Atlantic Division battle in the City of Brotherly Love. This is the first of two straight meetings that these teams will play, as they will travel together for tomorrow’s clash at the TD Garden when the two meet once again.
New York moved to the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference with its 100-98 victory over Charlotte this past Wednesday night but could not cover as a 7.5-point home favorite. It is now 13-4 straight-up on the season and 11-6 against the spread. The total ended as a PUSH against the Bobcats but it had gone OVER in five of the Knicks previous seven games.
NBA betting action heads to Phillips Arena on Wednesday night for what should be a great clash on the hardwood between the Denver Nuggets and the Atlanta Hawks.
The Nuggs are just clawing right around the .500 mark this year, and they are back on the East Coast playing their whopping 13th road game on the campaign.
Two of the top teams in the NBA betting world are going to clash in the Big Apple on Tuesday night when the Brooklyn Nets play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
There hasn’t been much this year in terms of teams that have been able to contend with the Thunder. The team has just four losses this entire year, and it has rolled off five wins in a row, scoring at least 100 points in all five games.
A pair of teams from the Western Conference are going to meet for the second time a span of just six days in NBA betting action, as the Denver Nuggets take on the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena.
Denver has been a poor road team this year, going just 4-6 SU and 6-4 ATS. The team is flying up and down the court, but there are still some major problems holding the team back from its full potential.
For the second straight night, the Minnesota Timberwolves are going to be involved in NBA betting action, as they take to the road to battle it out with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Think that Minnesota is glad to have F Kevin Love back in the lineup? All that Love has done since he’s been back in the fold is average 24.0 points, 16.5 boards, 1.8 steals, and 1.8 assists per game.
Houston brings a three-game winning streak into this matchup including a 117-101 victory over Toronto on Tuesday night as a six-point home favorite. The win evened its overall record to 7-7 straight-up and 7-6-1 against the spread. The total has gone OVER in six of its last eight games. The Rockets now have to go on the road where they are just 2-4 SU and 2-3-1 ATS.
The Clippers have become the toast of the town in LA with eight straight-up victories in their first 10 games. They have also become one of the favorites of the betting public with a profitable 8-2 start against the spread. Los Angeles’ 92-87 win over San Antonio this past Monday night as a 4.5-point road underdog extended its current winning streak to six games and raised its road record this season to 3-0 both SU and ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in five of its last six games.
Orlando has stumbled out of the gate to a 3-6 straight-up start that includes a 97-86 loss to Toronto this past Sunday as a four-point road underdog. The Magic are 4-4-1 against the spread and the total has stayed UNDER in four of their last six games. They are 1-4 SU (2-2-1 ATS) in their first five games on the road.
With Dwight Howard now on the West Coast with the Lakers, Orlando has suddenly become very average.
Memphis is off to a hot start with five straight-up victories in its first six games and a 5-1 record as well against the spread. The total has gone an even 3-3 but it has stayed UNDER in the last three games. The Grizzlies are coming off a huge 104-86 rout of Miami this past Sunday as 1.5-point home underdogs and should be well rested for Wednesday night’s game with three day’s rest.
