Banish The Monday Blues With NBA Basketball Betting
It may have been a slightly quiet Sunday in the NBA with respect to games, but there was no shortage of excitement in the limited number of matches that took place. In the four games, the winning margin was no higher than 6 and there were two wins on the road.
The Kings managed to triumph away to the Clippers, winning by a score of 92-98. The New York Knicks held on to defeat the Hornets 96-93 while the Heat maintained their excellent start to the season. Miami defeated the Toronto Raptors by a score of 107-102. The final game of the day saw the Warriors clinching a 90-95 win over the Trail Blazers.
New Orleans Pelicans @ Memphis Grizzlies
The 3-0 record currently held by the Memphis Grizzlies represents the best start the franchise has ever had. The wins may not have been the most thrilling or examples of fantastic basketball but in a results based business, the Grizzlies should be feeling rather proud of themselves. However, they should also bear in mind that the Pelicans have managed to win three of their last four in Memphis, which may mean that going 4-0 will be a tall order.
Marc Gasol shot 22 for the Grizzlies on Saturday in a narrow win over the Hornets while Zach Randolph served up 12 points. New Orleans also had a tough match on Saturday, eventually succumbing to Dallas late on. Anthony Davis has shone for the Pelicans so far, serving up 57 points and 32 rebounds in their two matches so far this season.
With the Grizzlies defence being on fine form this season, you should fancy Memphis at -4.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
Boston Celtics @ Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks have a 2-1 record so far this season but it is obvious that the team is performing much stronger in the first half than they are in the second half. Perhaps the team needs to make a change to what they are doing at half-time but they will have a chance against the Celtics. The team from Boston hasn’t triumphed in a Western Conference arena in over twenty months, so there may be a chance for the Mavericks to power on in the second half.
The Mavericks were cruising at the Pelicans on Saturday but were then strongly outscored in the 3rd quarter before bouncing back in the last section of the game to steal a win. This is something that the team needs to work on and it may be that developing a strong lead actually works against the Mavericks.
The Celtics started their season with a bang, scoring 121 points in a win against the Nets but in their follow-up game they struggled badly, leaving Boston with a 1-1 record after two games. Rajon Rondo has made it back into action but he is yet to be at his best and Marcus Smart has also struggled to find form.
The Mavericks are strong favourites in what looks like being a high scoring match so odds of 2.0 for Dallas with -10 could be of interest to anyone looking to keep things interesting until the end of the game. Bet Now!
Sacramento Kings @ Denver Nuggets
The Kings started their campaign with a home loss but have followed this up with two wins against teams who were on fire last season, defeating Portland and the Los Angeles Clippers. Rudy Gay has been in excellent form this season while DeMarcus Cousins can boast of 34 points and 17 rebounds on his last showing.
The Nuggets currently have a 1-1 record, suffering a significant defat against the Thunder on Saturday. Aptly for Halloween weekend, the Nuggets coach said that his team playing like zombies in the first half. Ty Lawson performed well on Saturday after a sloppy start to the season but Kenneth Faried had a difficult time at the weekend.
The Nuggets at -7.0 with odds of 1.90 may be exactly you are looking for to spice up Monday’s basketball fixtures. Bet Now!
