A full card of games is scheduled this Tuesday and we have previewed the best NBA games on offer.
The 76ers vs. Thunder, Nuggets vs. Hawks and Bucks vs. Spurs is where we’re drawing our attention to.
Punters are getting nice odds from bookmakers as the NBA continues to excite. Here are our NBA betting tips!
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Philadelphia 76ers @ Wells Fargo Centre
The Thunder and the 76ers are on two very different paths at the moment. Oklahoma City has won five consecutive games and the 76ers have rattled off four consecutive losses.
It was all going so well for the 76ers earlier this season but their recent woes on the road are troubling. They now sit at 23-14 on the season and 16 of those wins have come at home.
Their last four losses have all come on the road and they were all below-par results. Philadelphia will need to turn up against the Thunder to win this Tuesday.
Oklahoma City are now 20-15 after their winning streak and they have posted wins against some quality teams along the way.
Wins over the Raptors and Mavericks were quality outings and four of the five wins came on the road.
They remain on the road for this game, against one of the best home teams this season. However, Philadelphia is lacking confidence and could be there for the taking.
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are going to need to step up, because the rest of this 76ers team looks a little out of their depth.
If the Thunder can put some pressure on the 76ers early, it could see this game going down to the last shot.

Denver Nuggets vs. Atlanta Hawks @ State Farm Arena
This might not be a marquee game but it should provide punters and NBA fans plenty of excitement.
The Nuggets are struggling for consistency over the last few weeks but they remain as one of the best teams in the west.
Denver is 24-11 on the season and they hold at 9-7 record on the road. That road record has been tested over the last three games, with Denver losing two of the three.
The losses came to Houston and Washington, with the win coming against Indiana. It’s not inspiring form but they haven’t been helped with the injury to Paul Millsap.
He’s a high paid player for the Nuggets and they’re clearly missing his assets. However, the Hawks have been missing their stars as well.
Trae Young is back in the squad, which is a massive bonus. Young is averaging 28.8 points per game and his absence left a big hole in their offense.
The Hawks are still without John Collins, Cam Reddish and Jabari Parker – all high draft picks over the last few years.
Atlanta is only 8-28 on the season but expect things to improve as Young gets more time. They have two of their last three games and the only loss came to Boston by three points.
This game should be a close contest.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. San Antonio Spurs @ AT&T Centre
Stars collide as Giannis goes up against Demar DeRozan at AT&T Centre on Tuesday.
The Bucks are cruising at 32-5 and they have bounced back to win their last five games after losing to the Celtics on Boxing Day.
Playing on the road hasn’t given them any problems, with a record 14-3 and this is a game that looks theirs for the taking.
San Antonio is 14-20 on a season which sees them in doubt of missing the playoffs. A Gregg Popovich team rarely misses the playoffs, so this Spurs team will need to lift.
DeRozan has done most of the scoring with 21.6 points per game but more was expected from the former Toronto Raptor.
Lamarcus Aldridge also needs to lift his productivity, otherwise the Spurs could be in for a long season.
Punters will be in the camp of the Bucks and we don’t blame them. We don’t see how the Spurs could score enough points to keep up.
