Get ready to Bet Online on These Big NBA Matchups!
It will be a hectic live betting affair in the NBA this Thursday as 28 teams meet for another set of games expected to produce a flurry of exciting plays and drama.
The Warriors–Thunder matchup headlines the 14-game showdown, and it just gets better from there for sports betting fans as top teams like the Boston Celtics, Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, and San Antonio Spurs also look to continue their winning ways.
Washington Wizards @ Charlotte Hornets (November 23, 08:00 GMT+8)
Washington have one of the best starting units in the league, but they will need their reserves to step up if they want to stop the Hornets who just found a new sting. Charlotte snapped their losing streak recently and looked more dangerous with Dwight Howard dominating the paint and Nicolas Batum back in action. I think this will be close, so go for the Hornets -2.00 @ 1.87.
Brooklyn Nets @ Cleveland Cavaliers (November 23, 08:00 GMT+8)
With their best players out, Brooklyn won't have their hopes up against the team they defeated last month. Not to mention that LeBron James and the Cavaliers are on a five-game winning streak and are showing a much-improved defence. If you're punting, Cleveland -10.50 @ 1.85 seem a good choice.
Portland Trail Blazers @ Philadelphia 76ers (November 23, 08:00 GMT+8)
Defence will be key for the Blazers in this game especially that they are up against the rampaging Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. However, Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum must find their scoring touch again if they want to neutralise Philly completely.
LA Clippers @ Atlanta Hawks (November 23, 08:30 GMT+8)
Nothing is going right in the Clippers paradise with nine straight losses, and the last thing they need is a defeat to one of the league's worst teams. It should be remembered though that this Atlanta team played out gritty games against the Celtics and displayed some decent offence in their win over the Kings. I like the chances of the Hawks on +3.50 @ 1.91.
Boston Celtics @ Miami Heat (November 23, 08:30 GMT+8)
After Boston took down the defending champions and proved they are the best team this season, it's doubtful they will allow their streak to end against the Heat. Miami haven't been playing well at home, so Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown should be able to punish them with their scoring and beat an Asian Handicap -3.50 @ 2.01.
Toronto Raptors @ New York Knicks (November 23, 08:30 GMT+8)
The Raptors blow out the Knicks by 23 points last week, and they should be able to do it again—this time in front of the Madison Square Garden crowd. New York still have a chance if Kristaps Porzingis can play the way he did against the Clips, though everybody knows what happened the first time he tried against Toronto's defence. Go for the Raps -4.50 @ 2.02.
Denver Nuggets @ Houston Rockets (November 23, 09:00 GMT+8)
Although the Nuggets have the firepower to make life hard for any team, the West-leading Rockets should still be too much for them. James Harden is leading the NBA with 31.6 points per game, and they are looking more unstoppable with Chris Paul back.
Dallas Mavericks @ Memphis Grizzlies (November 23, 09:00 GMT+8)
Few expect Dallas to win any game at all, but the way they played in the first 36 minutes of their match against the Celtics should lift some spirits. If Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews can stay efficient, defeating Memphis—losers of their last five outings—should be doable. Choosing Dallas +5.00 @ 2.03 is a risk worth taking.
Orlando Magic @ Minnesota Timberwolves (November 23, 09:00 GMT+8)
Following their run at the top of the East, Orlando are now in a freefall with no end in sight for their five-game skid. The Wolves are the better team on paper and should pose a big challenge for the Magic, especially with the way they are preventing shots at the rim and the restricted area. Go for Minnesota -7.00 @ 1.96.
San Antonio Spurs @ New Orleans Pelicans (November 23, 09:00 GMT+8)
Third in the West without their star player and starting point guard, the Spurs are surely ones to watch. The Pels' Anthony Davis should provide a difficult matchup for LaMarcus Aldridge, but San Antonio's depth and quality can't be ignored. Pick the Spurs +2.00 @ 1.95.
Golden State Warriors @ Oklahoma City Thunder (November 23, 09:00 GMT+8)
Kevin Durant is still questionable, but should he be given the green light, it would mark the first time he'll play at Chesapeake Arena as an NBA Champion. The motivation will certainly be there for Russell Westbrook; and although the Thunder guard has embraced the facilitator role while playing with two offensive talents, I expect him to return to his explosive triple-double ways in this game.
Milwaukee Bucks @ Phoenix Suns (November 23, 10:00 GMT+8)
The issue the Bucks need to resolve is their inconsistent offence that was in disarray in their loss to the Mavs. It should give them some confidence they are playing one of the league's worst defensive squads, but they can't take it easy against the Suns who have shown excellent ball movement in their past few games. Given the handicap, I like the chances of Phoenix on +5.50 @ 1.89.
Chicago Bulls @ Utah Jazz (November 23, 10:00 GMT+8)
In the absence of defensive anchor Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors needs to step up to fill his void in the Jazz' frontcourt. They have the rest advantage over the Bulls who are playing their second of back-to-back road games, and Rodney Hood can take advantage of that to exploit Chicago's already weak defence.
Los Angeles Lakers @ Sacramento Kings (November 23, 11:30 GMT+8)
It might take some time before the California rivalry returns to its usual intensity, but it should be interesting to see the first matchup of rookies Lonzo Ball and De'Aaron Fox. The Lakers, however, should have the edge against the Kings that have been awful on both ends of the floor—even losing to a Nuggets team missing its head coach and two starters!
