The NBA rolls on this week and there is a full card of games to bet on this Tuesday.
We look at 76ers vs. Pacers, Bulls vs. Celtics and Cavaliers vs. Lakers. All three games will have NBA fans glued to the TV and punters get good betting opportunities. Here are our NBA betting tips!
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Indiana Pacers @ Bankers Life Fieldhouse
The road woes continued for the 76ers last week when losing to the Dallas Mavericks 109-91.
That made it five consecutive losses away from home and overall, they’re just 7-13 on the road. It’s a statistic that is going to need to improve in order throughout the season.
Looking to add another road loss to the 76ers record are the Indiana Pacers. They are 24-15 overall and are much better at home with a 15-5 record.
The Pacers have produced mixed results of late, including losses to the Nuggets, Hawks and Heat. However, they have two wins against Charlotte and Chicago.
They do have some injury concerns but most of the team should be suiting up for this game against Philadelphia.
We are expecting the 76ers to be well-backed by punters come game day. Bookmakers should have an even market but we’re siding with the away side.
Philadelphia needs to show that it can win big games on the road and beating Indiana is a good starting point.

Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics @ TD Garden
The Bulls aren’t the Bulls of old but they could still give this Boston Celtics team a run for their money this Tuesday.
After losing four consecutive games, the Bulls hit back with a victory over Detroit last week. The 108-99 win was much needed and they could start to build some confidence from that outing.
It was the fifth game in a row where they scored over 100 points but defense has been their weak point. They give up 107.7 points per game, which is only three points worse than the Celtics.
However, the Celtics average six points better on offense and that’s often where the game is won.
Boston has been anything but good over the last week. They suffered three consecutive losses against the Wizards, Spurs and 76ers before beating New Orleans on Sunday.
It was a blowout win for the Celtics, scoring 140 points and giving up just 105. If they can find that sort of consistency this season, they’ll be a playoff-bound team.
Boston has more scope than the Bulls and although it could be tight for three quarters, we’re expecting Boston to pull away late.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. LA Lakers @ STAPLES Centre
We’re not sure if LeBron James will face his old team but either way, it should be a quality contest.
The Lakers are 32-7 and they’re coming off a big win over the Thunder where they rested both James and Anthony Davis.
Both players are listed as day-to-day and if either of them starts against the Cavaliers, it could be enough to see them winning with ease.
However, this is an improving Cavaliers team coming off consecutive wins. They defeated the Pistons in overtime last week before doubling down and beating the Denver Nuggets.
That 111-103 win was a big upset result as it came away from home. In fact, both of their recent wins came on the road.
It will give them confidence heading into a game they’re not expected to win. The Lakers are the best team in the Western Conference and it could show here.
Bookmakers should have a favourable line for the Cavaliers. Take it and expect a good game.
