Welcome to the NBA Tips for Wednesday, November 8th, 2017.
It was a night of good NBA action last night. The Cavs vs Bucks was a very tight affair but the Cavs got one in the win streak and put the Bucks on a 4 game losing stream. Not great for them.
The Mavs pulled off a surprise with a big victory over Washington. The Knicks made it three in a row with that win over Charlotte.
Raptors started off dominant against the Bulls but then almost blew it there with the Bulls having a big 4th quarter. The Raptors held them off.
Surprise as Philly dominated Utah. Philly have now won 5 in a row and are 6-4 total.
Only 5 games tonight. Here’s what we have:
Celtics vs Lakers Betting Tips:
Big game tonight and you know Lonzo Ball will be out there wanting to prove something. The Lakers come into this on a surprising two game winning streak.
But I can’t see Lonzo doing that. He’s not doing too well so far. Celtics just look like a really good and well managed team who will be able to control the Lakers.
Where it’s really going to hit home for the Lakers is the Celtics defense – at 94.45 a game they’re going to hold the Lakers in strong.
We’re taking Celtics -8.5 tonight in this one. Going to be a long night for Ball.
Pistons vs Pacers Betting Tips:
We’re going to back this one more due to the schedule than anything else.
Pistons haven’t played in a few days so are nice and rested while at home. Pacers are playing their 6th game in 9 days and are on a back to back. We think they’re going to fade down the stretch.
It’s a good one for the Pistons too as they have had time to sit and make some adjustments.
They do have a little bit of lack of depth at the moment with Leur out and Johnson questionable but I can’t see it being a fast paced game so that will accomodate them.
The Pacers are still struggling to fully figure out their offense and I think the Pistons are going to control them well tonight.
Take the refreshed Pistons to beat the Indiana Pacers and cover the spread. Tip is Pistons -6.5.
