NBA Betting Tips

Charlotte Hornets vs Boston Celtics @ TD Garden

The Charlotte Hornets and Boston Celtics are trying their best to get some momentum. They have won four of their last five, so they’re heading in the right direction.

Boston suffered a 111-99 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, but bounced back with wins over Chicago and New Orleans. The Celtics needed something to go their way, so they could build on that momentum with a win over Charlotte.

The Hornets lost to Orlando last week, but they rebounded with a win over New York. They also scored consecutive wins over the Milwaukee Bucks, which can’t be overlooked.

Miles Bridges and LaMelo Ball are playing well and they’re good enough to push Boston to its limits.

However, with the likes of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in the squad, we’re backing the home side to get the job done. Punters should get value odds for the Celtics.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Milwaukee Bucks @ Fiserv Forum

The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the hottest teams on the planet and they could capitalise on the struggling Bucks.

Memphis improved to 31-15 with a win over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday and we think their momentum could continue on Thursday.

Milwaukee hasn’t been playing too badly, but with recent losses to Atlanta, Toronto and Charlotte, it’s not looking good for the defending champions.

The Grizzlies have won their last six road games, so playing away from home hasn’t been problematic. Ja Morant has emerged as a premier scorer, averaging 24.4 points per game.

If Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn’t dominate the paint, the Grizzlies could score an upset win on the road.

Punters will get value odds for the Grizzlies and they’re worth having a wager in this situation. It all depends on which Bucks team turns up, but with Jrue Holiday sitting on the sidelines, they lose depth on both sides of the ball.

Therefore, include Memphis in your NBA selections.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Denver Nuggets @ Ball Arena

The Los Angeles Clippers might have regained some confidence after posting a 139-133 win over the Indiana Pacers.

It has been a tough season for the Clippers, who are without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Losing two superstars is tough, and they also have Luke Kennard sitting on the sidelines.

That should give the advantage to the Denver Nuggets, who could do with a confidence building performance. They looked flat in a 125-102 loss to the Utah Jazz, especially after looking great against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Denver won the first meeting against the Clippers 103-100 in LA before losing 87-85. Playing at home could turn the tables and we expect most of the money to come for the Nuggets.

They have less injuries to worry about and Nikola Jokic should have a field day in the paint.
