January 23rd, 2018 NBA Betting Tips

GraemeWritten by Graeme

It was an 0-1 night last night. We had the Hornets -10 however the Kings came back back in the 3rd beating them 32-20 there. That 12 points was enough for the Kings to cover unfortunately as the Hornets only won by 5 points.

Sorry for the lateness in picks today. I wish I could say there was a good reason for it but really after watching WWE RAW 25th anniversary show, both me and Vin stayed up late drinking and watching the Royal Rumble 94.

So yeah. As someone who is usually in bed by 9pm, staying up till 1:30am drinking and watching the Rumble messed up my day and I actually had a 90 minute freaking nap today.

Quiet night tonight with only 5 games on the board. The Warriors look to bounce back off their 10th loss of the season as they take on the Knicks, and the Celtics look to end their 3 game losing streak in LA as they take on the Lakers.

Magic vs Kings Betting Tips:

We’re going with Magic -6.5.

The Magic have a good little thing going at the moment. They played 4 top teams and didn’t perform too badly at all. Tight games against the Wiz & Cavs and victories over the Celtics and Timberwolves.

They’re going to be pumped for this game and winning twice in a row as they go on against the Kings. The Kings are seriously struggling at the moment and their last road win was against the Nets in December 20th.

Magic seem to have worked things out since Vucevic went out and figured out how to play without him and I like that. They’re showing a lot of fight. The Kings are just a mess on defense at the moment and can’t seem to stop anything. If they are down they don’t seem to know how to come back etc.

Let’s hope the Magic take these guys seriously.

Spurs vs Cavaliers Betting Tips:

We’re going with Spurs +2.5. A lot of the money has went on the Cavs in this one interestingly, changing the line a fair bit.

We know the Cavs can show up for the big games but they are a mess at the moment and getting points at home against them with the Spurs? Think you just gotta go with that.

Granted the Spurs themselves are struggling but they know there is no better time to beat the Cavs than right now and hopefully their offense can get clicking again.

I must admit I do have my fears tha the Cavs offense can run loose and the Spurs won’t be able to keep up with them. But this Spurs D should be good enough to really frustrate the Cavs and you have to expect them to all be up for it as well. I’ll take the points.

Knicks vs Warriors:

Not a tip as I generally don’t do over/unders, but my betting system seriously likes the over 225pts in this game. I usually stay away from them but it likes it enough that I thought I’d mention it for anyone flirting with that bet.

It was a nice 1-0 night last night as we took the Heat and they beat the Bucks.

I must admit I was nervous about that one. I did my reseach in the morning and my system liked it so I went with it. However then I went downtown to the dentist and to get a haircut.

I was talking to my barber about the game as he had lost a bundle on the Heat vs Bulls game and said he was going to blindly take the Heat in their next game. But then we went over this game and he decided against it as hey it’s going up against the Greek Freak. Probably helps that my barber is Greek.

The more I thought about it and our history with the Bucks the more I got concerned with it to the point that I was not sure I was going to take the pick yesterday. Then I went to the dentist, got knocked loopy and came back and slept. Woke up and it’s “oh crap I don’t have the tips out yet” so just went with what we had and we won!

So that was very nice and nice to break our Bucks curse.

It’s January 18th, 2018 and we’ve got 4 games on the board.

Celtics vs 76ers Betting Tips:

I don’t see how we can’t take the Celtics here. They had that tough loss to the Pelicans but that was the Davis show plus they were rusty on the break. They’ve had a great run before that.

76ers barely hung on against the Raptors which was poor after a big lead. Redick is out now and Fultz if he is back tonight won’t be healthy.

They’ll also be losing Holmes who is a key member of the squad down the stretch and in my opinion was a factor in that close one against the Raptors.

I’m taking Celtics -4 here and I fully expect them to make this a nice and relaxing night for us.

That’s the only pick I have today. The other games are just too iffy for me. FWIW it’s worth my system likes Magic +10.5 and Timberwolves +5 but I’m not too certain myself so going to stay away.

A big performance from the New Orleans Pelicans, and Anthony Davis in particular, saw us lose our Celtics -4.5 bet last night.

The Pelicans came out hungry for this one and Davis was in absolute beast mode. They controled the game and Davis put up a whopping 45 points and 16 rebounds in that one.

Cousins was also in spectacular form with 19 points and 15 rebounds. Just can’t predict a performance like Davis put in. The Pelicans held up strong and even when the Celtics took over, they hung in there in the 4th.

A much busier day in the NBA with 10 games to pick from.

Heat vs Bucks Betting Tips:

I think we’ve lost more this season on the Bucks than any other team so I almost feel like an idiot for going with this game but I’m taking Heat +4.5 regardless.

The Heat look to be missing Tyler Johnson I expect and that sucks but I think they have enough in the tank for this one. The Bucks got thumped by the Heat recently and while the Bucks had a bad performance in that game, I don’t know if they have what it takes here.

They aren’t really a ‘revenge’ type of team and the Heat have a good record against the Bucks.

I’m taking the points in this one with Heat +4.5.

Unfortunately I wrote the above tip and then I had to go to the dentist. Quite a few lines weren’t up so I thought I’d wait till I’m back to do the rest of the tips. But now I am woozy as all hell and came back and slept for a couple of hours and am a bit out of it.

Also want to get these tips up ASAP so just going to post them now with the one tip. Sorry about that!

The big game yesterday saw the Warriors run out 118-108 winners as they beat the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

That was a hell of a game and how about Curry with the dunk! The game fizzled out at the end unfortunately but it was a good one up until that.

We had Warriors -5.5 in that one and so won our bet there. Hope you all got on that one. Unfortunately the other two teams let us down which were the Spurs and the Pistons.

We move onto tonight, January 16th 2018. Quick note for anyone who likes to bet golf that my golf betting tips have returned for the 2018 year. We even had a small cash in the Sony Open to kickstart things so that was nice.

Alright only 4 games tonight.

Celtics vs Pelicans Betting Tips:

The Celtics are on another winning streak and are coming off a good little break so they should be refreshed and ready to put up 100+ points in this one.

That’s exactly what they will need against a team like the Pelicans. While the Pelicans are a solid road team they shouldn’t cause many problems to the Celtics here.

I think the Celtics might start a bit slow but will pick up as things go on and end up dominating down the stretch putting this game beyond reach there.

The Celtics have won 3 in a row against the Pelicans at home and I expect 4 in a row and for them to cover the spread tonight.

That’s the only pick today which is Celtics -4.5.

Unfortunately we posted a goose egg yesterday with the NBA Tips.

I liked the Wizards to bounce back against the Jazz however the Jazz had a massive game and Wizards couldn’t even win, let alone cover the spread.

Wizards just looked like they didn’t take them seriously and thought they could stroll to success so that was a very frustrating one to see.

The other one had me stunned as we had the Nuggets -9.5 against the Hawks and Atlanta blew them away 110-97. The Hawks just didn’t give up and both opened and closed the game with extremely strong performances.

Welp.

We shall move onto Thursday, January 11th. 4 games on the board. Two streaking teams with the Celtics visiting Philly to take on the 76ers. The Raptors host the Cavs as Toronto hope to have Lowry back and to get a big W.

Sacramento Kings vs LA Clippers Betting Tips:

The 13-27 Kings come into this one on the back of a 2 game losing streak. The LA Clippers have 2 wins in a row and are currently 19-21.

Wins are crucial for the Clippers at the moment as they look to at least hit .500 and they’re coming in with high momentum after that victory over the Golden State Warriors.

These two teams last played on December 26th and the Clippers ran wild over them 122-95. I can’t help but see a repeat performance. The Clippers are juts going from strength to strength and aren’t going to underrestimate a team.

I’m taking Clippers -1.5 tonight and am expecting them to dominate.

Raptors vs LeBron Betting Tips:

The Raptors are without Lowry again and that’s going to be a big loss. They hung in there well against the Heat but the heads are going to go down knowing they’ve already lost one without him and I think they’re going to lose another.

The Cavs are going to be out for blood in this one knowing it’s a winnable game against a top team. This is an opportunity they can’t afford to blow and Lebron won’t let them.

Cavs -3.

GraemeWritten by Graeme

It was a winning night last night with the NBA Tips.

We had the Blazers +8 and we didn’t even need the points. Hell we could have GIVEN those points and still won as the Blazers absolutely killed the Thunder 117-106. It was a very close game too but the Blazers worked hard and deservedly got the win.

We also had the Mavericks over the Magic. It didn’t work out as expected in that I said the Mavs would get an early lead and dominate from there. Mavs did but then lost their lead but thankfully came out strong in the 3rd with a great performance. We had Mavs -6.5 and they won by 15 points.

Raptors didn’t play Lowry last night – probably best to rest him – but they fought hard yet couldn’t get the W there.

It’s January 10th and a busy night with 11 games on the board. Lot of potential good games let’s see what we have tonight:

Wizards vs Jazz Betting Tips:

The Wizards come into this one off a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks and I like them to bounce right back.

They’ve shown in recent times that they are a strong bounce back team. They’ll be frustrated after that loss to the Bucks as they should have had that game. It was a poor performance in the 4th as well as GIANNIS~! that churt them.

Jazz had that solid game against the Heat however they’re still really struggling without Gobert and they just aren’t looking like they can recover without him.

Their road form is poor and they’re getting thumped and I like that to continue.

Wizards -7.5

Nuggets vs Hawks Betting Tips:

This is one of those games the Nuggets need to take seriously. It’s a winnable game and they need to put away the Atlanta Hawks. They’re at home where you have to think they’ll stop this losing streak and take it seriously.

Hawks are a feisty team and we saw how they did against the Clippers. But the Hawks are garbage and the Nuggets should have this one with ease. I don’t think Denver will lay off just because of the opposition – they will take Atlanta seriously as they know how key the wins are here as they look to end their playoff drought.

I’m taking Nuggets -9.5 and hoping they don’t let up throughout the game.

Unfortunately those are the only two games I’ve got tonight. My system likes the Bucks but not enough to cover and really I don’t want to ever bet on a Bucks game again – 10 of our losses this season are due to either betting the Bucks or against the Bucks. Just a team we can’t figure out.

It was a 1-2 night last night with a lucky half point saving us from a goose egg.

We picked the winners correctly unfortunately they were juste unable to cover the point spread.

The Pelicans -7 didn’t come in as although they won, it was only by 3 points. The Detroit Pistons matched them all the way in that game and it was a very close one and an excellent performance from the Pistons.

We had the Clippers -4 over the Hawks. The Clippers had a hot start to the game but couldn’t keep it going throughout. They won but not by enough to cover the point spread.

We had the Nuggets +10.5 and luckily that one came in as the Nuggets lost by 10 points to the Warriors. We didn’t expect it to be that close and props to the Nuggets for hanging in there and fighting the whole way.

Only 4 games tonight. Pitter patter, let’s get at ‘er.

Thunder vs Blazers Betting Tips:

This is a big game between the two teams who are 21-18 and 22-18. Lillard is still out of this one which is obviously a loss for the Blazers but they have got onto their winning ways.

Their road form isn’t the greatest but this is a very key road trip they’re on and they are going to want to get it off to a big start.

I do think the Thunder will win but this is a massive game for the Blazers and they’ve adjusted to the Lillard loss. I think they have to fight all the way to the end here and I’m happy taking the points.

Blazers +8 is my play in this game.

Mavericks vs Magic Betting Tips:

It’s been 3 brutal games in a row at home for the Mavericks as they lost to the Warriors, Bulls and Knicks.

Surely they can’t lose to the freaking Orlando Magic.

I’m slightly worried the Magic have momentum after that battle against the Cavs but I think it’s the opposite – that one will be demoralizing for them that they couldn’t win it.

The Mavs have to be firing on all cylinders here I mean all 3 losses were very tight and they’re going to be going nuts trying to win this one.

I like them to get an early lead and just keep going and not stopping.

Mavericks -6.5

Heat vs Raptors Betting Tips:

This one is based on whether or not Lowry plays but I expect he will and I’m going to take Raptors -4.5. Hell it’s probably worth betting even if he isn’t playing so go for that – they should battle harder without him.

Raptors are one of the best home teams in the league and the Heat had a rest day which may force them to have a slow start here. They’re also a very solid team on the road but Raptors are just the better team.

Raptors -4.5 is my final play of the day.
