Wednesday Night NBA Action To Enjoy
There may only be 6 games to enjoy on Wednesday in the NBA but as Tuesday night proved, 6 games is more than enough to give people what they are looking for. There were some excellent basketball games on Tuesday, including a few shock results, and it is likely that Wednesday night will be the same.
On Tuesday, there was scope to make some money with the betting action, but you can bet that there were some major losses too. The Wizards conjured up another magical home victory in Washington, defeating the Timberwolves by a score of 109-95. The Knicks were downed at home by the Mavericks, the team from Dallas grabbing a huge 87-107 win. There was a big surprise for the Warriors with the Grizzlies downing them by a score of 105-98.
The Nets stumbled at home to the Heat, the Miami side winning in Brooklyn by 91-95. The Pelicans were strong at home versus the Jazz, winning by 119-111. The Kings were not so strong at home, losing out to the Thunder by a score of 92-104.
Atlanta Hawks @ Cleveland Cavaliers
The Hawks hold a 17-7 record, with a 5-5 record away from home so far this campaign while the Cavs hold a 14-9 record, which includes an 8-4 record at home. Both teams come into this game having won their last game and the 5 game runs stand at 4-1 for the Hawks and 3-2 for the Clippers.
The Hawks downed the Bulls on Monday night with a 93-86 win and Jeff Teague helped himself to 7 assists, and the Hawks fans will be looking for more of the same from him on Wednesday night. The Cavaliers had lost two games in a row before defeating the Hornets 97-88 in Cleveland on Monday. LeBron grabbed 27 points and 13 assists while Kevin Love provided 22 points and 18 assists.
Pero Antic is a concern for the Hawks while Dion Waiters, Matthew Dellavedova and Mike Miller are all concerns for the Cavaliers.
Taking the Cavs at a handicap of -5.5 with odds of 1.90 should be worth your time and money. Bet Now!
Orlando Magic @ Boston Celtics
The Magic hold a 10-17 record, with a 7-11 record away from home, while the Celtics hold an 8-14 record, with a 5-8 record in Boston. The Magic lost their last game while the Celtics won theirs but both teams hold a 2-3 record in their last five games.
Kelly Olynyk grabbed 30 points from the bench for the Celtics on Monday night in their 87-105 win in Philadelphia, a career best performance. The Magic were looking good at half-time in their game against Toronto on Monday but the Raptors rallied, eventually winning 95-82.
Orlando will be monitoring Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier in the build-up to this game while Boston will be keeping an eye on Marcus Thornton, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart.
Taking the Celtics at a handicap of -3.5, at odds of 1.90, wouldn’t have been a blueprint for success this season so far but in this game, it should stand up. Bet Now!
Indiana Pacers @ Los Angeles Clippers
The Pacers hold an 8-17 record, with a 3-9 record away from home, and this clearly needs to be improved upon, even if it is unlikely that they will improve on it against the Clippers in Los Angeles. The Clippers hold a 17-7 record including a 9-3 record at home. Both teams come onto the back of a single victory but the five game record is a bit different, the Pacers holding a 1-4 record while the Clippers have a 3-2 record.
The Clippers are on a five game winning streak in Los Angeles, and after away defeats in Washington and in Milwaukee, they got back to winning ways with a 113-91 win against Detroit. The Pacers had been on an 8 game losing streak but they smashed this on Monday night, defeating the Lakers 110-91. Rodney Stuckey grabbed 20 points and 10 rebounds in that game and he will be a key man if the Pacers are to do the double over the Los Angeles teams.
Both teams have a few injury concerns for this game. The Pacers have concerns over George Hill and CJ Miles while the Clippers will have worries about Reggie Bullock, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Spencer Hawes.
While the Clippers should have more than enough to see this game through, taking the Pacers with a +11.5 handicap at odds of 1.90 should be a good option for plenty of people. Bet Now!
