Bet the Atlanta Hawks at BookMaker.eu
As hot the Spurs have been back in the comforts of their own arena after that daunting rodeo trip, I’m curious to see how Pop’s squad reacts to lacing ‘em back up on the road. Remember, San Antonio went 1-7 SU & ATS in those eight straight road games to fall to a bankroll killing 14-18-1 ATS when playing away from the ATT Center on the year. On the flipside, the Hawks have been hot for NBA bettors of late. It’s amassed three wins in its last seven games, but most importantly, went 6-1 ATS in those matchups and nearly just upset the Miami Heat as 10-point underdogs on Monday night.
While I’d feel much better if John Collins was back in the lineup after suffering from a bout of the flu. Either way, I’m taking the points and paying up to see if San Antonio can figure out a way to start winning and covering on the road.
Bet the Boston/Sacramento Over at BookMaker.eu
This could end up being the highest scoring game of the night at offshore betting sites. A night removed from running up and down the hardwood with the Golden State Warriors, the Celtics will be forced to go into the Golden 1 Center and run with a rested bunch of Kings. Boston’s defense has been at its worst all season long when playing on no rest with it conceding an average of 108.4 points per game which has led to the over cashing in on six of 10 occasions. Sacramento will be looking to even up its four-game homestand, so you can bet your bottom dollar they’ll be racing up and down the court looking to take advantage of what could be a fatigued Boston outfit.
Boston has had some major issues scoring the basketball of late in averaging 99.5 points in their L/4 games. If Kyrie Irving and company can’t get the job done against one of the worst scoring defenses the league has to offer, the city of Boston will likely have to settle for championships with the Red Sox and Patriots for this year.
Bet the Denver Nuggets at BookMaker.eu
The Lakers have been installed underdogs to the Nuggets each of the L/3 times Denver paid a visit to Tinseltown. Tonight should be no different regardless of the fact that Nikola Jokic and company just lost their third straight game at San Antonio on Monday night and has a huge clash with the Warriors in Oakland on Friday night. It’s seriously gotten that bad in Los Angeles. LeBron James doesn’t seem to have a care in the world as to how the rest of this season plays out. That was exhibited in Monday night’s home loss to the Clippers when even the crowd was getting on him about his lack of defense.
It should be business as usual for the Nuggs who still impressed the heck out of me in San Antonio even though they ended up losing by a point; they trailed by 21 at one point! Denver has an opportunity to snag the Western Conference’s top seed should it close this road trip out in style. Though just 11-18 ATS away from the Pepsi Center to date, the Lakers are simply an auto-fade right now. Until LA shows an inkling of giving a you know what, NBA bettors have no choice but to continue riding the gravy train.
