Enjoy The Tuesday NBA Action
We may be on the home straight for the NBA regular season but there is still plenty to play for across the country. There were a number of big games on Monday night and there is plenty of betting opportunities lined up for Tuesday in the NBA.
The Hornets were defeated at home by the Celtics, with the Boston side grabbing a strong 104-116 win in Charlotte. The Hawks were home winners against the Bucks, winning by a score of 101-88 and the Grizzlies were home winners against the Kings, winning by a score of 97-83.
The Trail Blazers defeated the Suns at home, winning by 109-86 and the Lakers grabbed an away win, defeating the 76ers by a score of 111-113. The Raptors won a tight game at home, defeating the Houston Rockets by a score of 99-96 and the Timberwolves were taught a lesson at home with the Jazz winning by a score of 84-104.
Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Clippers
The Warriors are already looking forward to the post-season but they have one or two things that they would like to tie up before then. They are in with a shout of grabbing the best overall record in the NBA, always something worth aiming for, and they have a chance to stop the Clippers winning run. The Clippers are looking good in the Western Conference and already have a franchise record in the bag but both sides will be keen to get one over on a rival on this game.
The Warriors hold a 60-13 record so far this season and this includes a road record of 26-11. They have managed to win 9 games in a row, leaving them with a 9-1 record in their last 10 games, and their most recent outing was a 95-108 win in Milwaukee.
The Clippers hold a 49-25 record so far this season, which includes a 27-10 record at home. The 7 game winning run includes a 119-106 win against the Celtics and they hold an 8-2 record in their last 10 games.
With respect to average points scored, the Warriors lead 109.8 to 106.6 and for average points allowed, the Warriors lead 98.9 to 100.3.
Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala are being monitored day to day by the Warriors while the Clippers are likely to be without Jamal Crawford while Blake Griffin is being monitored.
Taking the Warriors with a +2 handicap, at odds of 1.90, is likely to be an interesting bet this Tuesday. Bet Now!
Indiana Pacers @ Brooklyn Nets
The Eastern Conference is still extremely tight at the moment and there are five teams with genuine ambitions of grabbing one of the two final spots left in the group. The Pacers and the Nets are both involved in this race which makes this game vital not only for these two teams but for Miami, the Hornets and the Celtics.
The Pacers hold a 32-41 record so far and this includes a 12-23 record in their away games. They won their most recent game, a 104-99 home win against the Mavericks while they hold a 3-7 record in their last ten games.
The Nets hold a 32-40 record this season and this includes a 14-20 record at home. The Nets have won three games in a row, including a 107-99 home win against the Lakers. The Brooklyn side have a 7-3 record on their last 10 outings.
For average points scored, the Nets lead 97.5 to 96.9 and for average points allowed, the Pacers lead 97.3 to 100.6.
The Pacers are still without Paul George and Rodney Stuckey while David West is a slight doubt. The Nets are without Thaddeus Young while Deron Williams is a slight doubt.
Taking the Pacers with a +2.5 handicap, at odds of 1.90, is a decent bet in this game. Bet Now!
Atlanta Hawks @ Detroit Pistons
The Hawks are likely to rotate their squad and make some changes but they are gunning for the most victories in their franchise so they won’t be totally rolling over and allowing teams to take away from them without some effort.
The Hawks hold a 56-18 record this season which includes a 24-13 record away from home. The Hawks won their most recent game, a 101-88 win over the Bucks and they currently hold a 6-4 record in their last 10 outings.
The Pistons have a 28-45 record this season and this includes a 15-21 record in Detroit. They lost their most recent game, a 109-102 loss in Miami and the Pistons are currently 5-5 in their 10 most recent games.
With respect to average points scored, the Hawks are 102. To 98.4 and for average points allowed, the Hawks lead 97.1 to 99.7. The Pistons are likely to be without Greg Monroe and given their rate of change in recent games, it is very hard to predict who will represent the Hawks.
Taking the Pistons in this one is likely to be a good bet for midweek. Bet Now!
