It was a nice winning night last night as we went 2-1 with the NBA Tips.
We took Over 214.5 points in the Warriors vs Mavericks game and that one went over with ease. At 127 points in the first half we knew we were good there and the Warriors absolutely creamed the Mavericks. Golden State look like they’re out to prove something and they’re going to be a dangerous team for the next little while.
We also took Spurs -2.5 which was a good one. A lot of people thought the Raptors were the team to take that one but the Spurs won it. It was a bit tight but thankfully San Antonio did the business for us.
We lost with the Nuggets -3.5. That was a frustrating one at the end because of the Jokic/Brooks incident. not to say Nuggets would have won or covered but it put the nail in the coffin there and that was annoying. John Wallhad a poor game although made up for it with his free throws there. But you can’t win a game with that many turnovers. Ridiculous.
Also how good is Giannis? What a player and he is just killing it for the Bucks at the moment.
We turn our attention to tonight with 6 games on the board. The Clippers look to remain unbeaten as they host the Utah Jazz and the Bulls and Knicks are on the road against two of the top teams in the East looking for their first W.
Celtics vs Knicks Betting Tips:
The Celtics haven’t had the best start to the season with 2 tough games to start and that injury to Hayward. That was a big loss to them for sure however teams like the Knicks are where the Celtics should be making a statement againt.
Kyrie has been disappointing this season thus far but against the Knicks I don’t think he needs to drop those all star numbers anyway. The defensive pressure the Celtics put on the Knicks will be too much and I just see this being a very solid defensive performance from the Celts. I don’t think the Knicks will have any answer for them.
Defense will be the name of the game in this one and the Knicks really don’t have any. We like Celtics -9 tonight.
Clippers vs Jazz Betting Tips:
The Clippers have been awesome this season so far with big wins over the Lakers and the Suns. However they haven’t yet faced a tough defense and that’s what is going to happen tonight against the Jazz.
Utah have a great defense and that’s going to make it tough for the Clippers. They won’t be used to this. Look at how the Jazz shut down the Thunder on the weekend. That was impressive.
This is going to be a very tight game with two big defensive performances expected and we’ll be happy taking the team with the points in this one. Jazz +4.5
Pelicans vs Blazers Betting Tips:
Performance wise you’d think the Blazers would be the team to back here – and you may be right. But I like everything going on with the Pelicans right now. They seem to have some solid team chemistry going on both on and off the court.
It’s just little things like Nelson signing that contract then stepping up to help them get the W against the Lakers. Small things like that can really help a team.
I’m taking Pelicans +4.5 tonight.
