November 29th, 2017 NBA Betting Tips

GraemeWritten by Graeme

It was a 1-1 night last night with the NBA Betting Tips.

Our loss was with the Kings. I was worried the Bucks might come out fast but the Kings held well with them in the 1st. Unfortunately the 2nd quarter hit and the Bucks just demolished them. The Greek Freak had an excellent performance and the Kings didn’t come close to clawing back to cover the 6.5 points.

Our win was with the Utah Jazz -1.5. It was nice to be on that one as the Nuggets just collapsed in the 2nd half and it made a nice and chill game where we just got to sit back, relax, and count our money.

Today is Wednesday, November 29th and we’ve got 10 games going tonight. Both the Thunder and Magic look to end their losing streaks. The Pistons and Suns look to build on their recent wins and get something going. The Lakers host the 15-6 Golden State Warriors.

Let’s get to it:

San Antonio Spurs vs Memphis Grizzlies Betting Tips:

The 7-12 Grizzlies come into this one having lost their last eight games. The Spurs are 13-7 with 2 wins in a row.

The Grizzlies have a new coach with J.B. Bickerstaff ther eas the interm head coach currently. That was after the collapse of Fizdale who even benched Gasol against the Nets.

I think this line is only 8 because of all that drama. Everyone is expecting the Grizzlies to be in a better mood and come out rocking.

And hey – maybe they will. But all that drama doesn’t change the fact that the Grizzlies just haven’t been a good team this season. They’re going up against the San Antonio Spurs. One thing that does concern me about the Spurs is their inability to string 3 wins in a row together. They haven’t did that since their opening 4 games of the season.

Parker is back for the Spurs and that’s a nice boost and I just think Spurs have what it takes tonight and the Grizzlies problems won’t be resolved by a coaching change.

Spurs -8 is my favourite play today.

Pelicans vs Timberwolves Betting Tips:

I’m a fan of what the Pelicans are doing at home. They’re playing some great ball here and their offense is just flying at the moment.

They’re rested after that Warriors game and will be coming out pumped ready to bounce back. They’re fairly decent for the bounce backs and being at home will help. Cousins and Davis have been great and the rest of the team are also performing well.

The Timberwolves are up and down and while they will put up a contest I think this will end up being a 3 score game.

Pelicans will still have their loss to the Timberwolves fresh in their minds too. That one took place November 1st, 2017 and the Pelicans lost it at the death. They’ll be concentrating hard in this one and will be sure to play a lot better down the stretch.

I’m going with Pelicans -5.5 tonight. I try and stay away from overs however I don’t hate the over 215 here tonight.

It was a 2-1 night last night with the NBA Betting Tips with the Celtics the only ones letting us down.

However they’ve made us a fair bit of money this year so we’ll forgive them this time!

Celtics lost in a big battle as the Pistons came to play. Andre Drumond was on fire with 26 points and 22 rebounds – what can ya do against that? He was in absolute beast mode and that was an unbelievable performance.

The Celtics mentally looked off too. They got off to a slow start and then they let it slip when they were tied with just over 5 minutes left. Pistons wanted that one more – simple as that.

We won with the Pacers -4 although it took till the 4th quater for the Pacers to pull away from the Magic. It was a nice bonus seeing Oladipo in the team. We were hoping he would be and he was a big part of it.

It was a much easier one with the Cavs -2.5. That one scared us as the Cavs went to +2.5 before game time. Had us freaking a tad. Thankfully LeBron stepped up as he does in this big game and did the business. A dominant performance from Lebron.

Jazz vs Nuggets Betting Tips:

I’m going to roll with the Jazz -1.5 tonight.

Golbert being out is brutal and we’ve bet against them a few times. However I loved watching their performances over the Bucks and Bulls as of late.

They’re adjusting to life without Golbert and it’s taken a few games but you can really see the improvement.

I think they’re honestly just going to get better without Golbert. They’re showing a lot of focus. The Nuggets are surviving without Millsap at the moment but I don’t think that’ll continue. Jokic has stepped up well but he can’t perform consistently like he has been doing the last 3 games and I think it ends tonight.

Jazz are focused and I don’t see the Nuggets getting rebounds tonight – Jazz shuld dominate them there. Jazz have got some solid home performances going into this one and the Nuggets have been very inconsistent on the road.

Jazz -1.5 is my play tonight.

Bucks vs Kings Betting Tips:

I’ve got to admit I’m a bit concerned about this one but I’m taking Kings +6.5.

The Bucks are in a bit of disarray at the moment but we know they can step up especially with Giannis at times. My big concern is how the Warriors result will affect the Kings. Will it give them good confidence so that can keep fighting throughout this game? Or will the Bucks hit them hard and fast at the beginning and kill them mentally?

Luckily the Bucks aren’t a big 1st quarter team ranked 18th for points in the 1st so hopefully that doesn’t happen.

Kings +6.5 is what I’m going with. The Kings are performing above the mean at the moment but let’s hope they do that again tonight.

November 22nd, 2017 NBA Betting Tips

We won our lone pick last night of the Lakers -6 against the Bulls.

It took the Lakers a bit to get going and it was concerning for awhile but it really was a game of two halves. The Bulls blew a 14 point lead that they took into the half as the Lakers came out and pumped them 30-19 and 31-19 for a final score of 103-94, and covered the point spread with ease.

It’s Wednesday, November 22nd and it’s an absolutely stacked day in the NBA. Thanksgiving there are no games so we’ve got a whopping 14 games today.

The Celtics look to take their winning streak to 17 as they go on the road to the Miami Heat. The Cavs also look to extend theirs to 6 as they host the Brooklyn Nets.

Big game as the Thunder host the Warriors – that should be a real interesting one. And the Lakers will hope to continue their run and extend it to 3 wins as they visit the Sacramento Kings.

Here’s tonights betting tips:

Magic vs Timberwolves Betting Tips:

The Timberwolves go into this one on a 2 game losing streak. They lost to the Pistons at home then traveled to Charlotte where they lost 118-102.

It was a bad 4th quarter for Minnesota and that’s been an issue for them this season – they’re the 3rd lowest 4th quarter scoring team. They just seem to fade. You look at a lot of their losses and it’s against people in the top half of those stats.

The Orlando Magic aren’t quite there – they’re the 15th highest scoring team in the 4th quarter and really haven’t had those rushes too often.

The Timberwolves are coming off a rest and will be motivated to get back on a winning streak. They’re going up against the Orlando Magic who have lost their last 5 with some real thumpings in there.

The heads are down in Orlando at the moment and they have to be disappointed at the way they lost to the Pacers. They got it to just 3 points then completely blew it.

I like Timberwolves -7 tonight as I feel they’ll be motivated to get back on the winning streak and will be strong in that 4th quarter.

Clippers vs Hawks Betting Tips:

I’m going to take the Clippers to end their bad run and win tonight and cover the 2.5 point spread.

We’ve seen Clippers when they’re motivated and we know their abilities – like going to OT with the Cavs and tight games with quite a few teams down this losing stretch.

They’re going up against the worst team in the NBA – right there with the Mavs. The Mavs was the Clippers last win when they thumped them 119-98 and I expect a similar performance tonight.

I’m not sure if their fortunes will turn around but I do like the Clippers to be extra motivated for this one and get a big win over the Hawks.

Clippers -2.5 is the play.

It was a 1-1 night last night with the NBA Betting Tips.

We took Celtics -6.5 and boy did we get lucky in that one. Irving had a huge game as he scored 47 points for the Celtics. They were tied at the end but luckily the Celtics had a big overtime period and won by 8 points to cover there.

Bucks were extremely disappointing. Wall was questionable but played and really the Bucks just had a poor game. This was one where they should have kept up a fast pace and really forced the beaten up Wizards to the limits but they didn’t do that.

Just one game tonight and I’ve got a tip for it.

Bulls vs Lakers Betting Tips:

I’m taking Lakers -6 in this clash.

Lakers are coming in on this one after a great victory over the Denver Nuggets. While the Lakers haven’t been too good this season they have been excellent at home.

They’ve logged wins over the Grizzlies, Nets, Pistons and Wizards this season at home.

When they lose at home it’s usually a close one. They’re going up against the Bulls who have been extremely poor this season.

Ball is starting to really come in on his own and you can feel he’s getting a lot of confidence and this team is gelling.

Walton is clearly figuring out how best to use Ball as he knows he is going to be an important player for the Lakers and it’s been working out well.

Lakers -6 is the play.

It was a 1-0 night with a push in the Pistons/Bucks game for us.

I wish I had followed through and taken the Wizards +1. It’s annoying when something like historical matchups can throw you off. That really shouldn’t have had an effect but I saw so many people staying away from that game due to it I decided to be cautious there as well.

Our win was with the Knicks -4. It was a tight one and it required a big 4th quarter from the Knicks but they won 106-101 to give us the win. We expected it to be a bit easier than that so that was a scary one all the way to the end.

It was a push with the Pistons +4 against the Bucks. Pistons also had a big 4th to keep that one close after trailing badly going into the 4th quarter.

Two games, one tip tonight.

Celtics vs Warriors Betting Tips:

Decided to wait till later to post the tips today as wanted the line to move in our favour.

Celtics opened at +6 but there was question as to whether Stephen Curry would play or not. We expected he would so wante dto wait for the line to reflect that.

The line is now Celtics +7.5 and I’m happy backing Boston on that one.

Celtics are coming into this one on the back of 13 wins. This is a potential NBA Finals matchup and with the way the Celtics have banded together it really could be.

The Celtics throughout this season have shown an incredibly strong team mentality. Injuries happen but the injuries the Celtics have suffered have been brutal. Yet they still band together.

I’m not saying they will win tonight – honestly I’d be surprised if they did. However I don’t see them giving up at least. This is a massive game for them and one where if they battle to the wire it reflects good for them.

Warriors are rested but they still have to travel. Celtics all the metrics look good in terms of boards, steals and turnovers.

Horford is playing solid and Irving is back and we’re taking Celtics +7.5. Might even be best to wait till closer to gametime for that line to jump.

It was another 1-1 night last night as we were on the wrong side of half a point being the difference.

We had the Celtics -6 and they covered 109-102 in a tight one against the Nets. Credit to the Celtics who didn’t take their foot off the gas. Irving was in the squad and picked up 25 points in that one.

In the other game we had the Spurs -6.5 and unfortunately they won 97-91. Mavs hung with them quite well to their credit and after a low scoring 1st quarter we had a feeling things weren’t going to go our way. They did not.

In the other game the Raptors beat the Houston Rockets 129-113 in a big result for Toronto. DeRozan picked up 27 points in that clash and that was a much needed win for the Raps, who now move 8-5 for the season.

Busy schedule again tonight with 11 games on the board. Sorry for the delay again I was busy BUYING WRESTLEMANIA TICKETS. Can’t wait for that show.

Knicks vs Jazz Betting Tips:

We’ll be going with Knicks -4 tonight.

The Jazz have been extremely poor on the road this season and are still seking their first win. They’ve been dominated in every road game and know they go to Madison Square Garden – without Rody Gobert.

That’s not good.

The Knicks lost a tight one to the Cavs but they’ll want to bounce back. They’ve been strong at that this season so far. They lost to the Magic and turned around at MSG and thumped the Kings. They lost to the Rockets – humiliated actually – but then turned around and slapped the Suns around.

Since their 0-3 start the Knicks have looked great and that’s mostly due to Kristaps Porzingis. The dude is killing it and even if he has a bad game the Knicks are still doing well.

I’m surprised at this line to be honest as I’d expect it to be a fair bit higher. I’m going to go with Knicks -4 with a lot of confidence in this one.

Pistons vs Bucks Betting Tips:

Vin is a Bucks fan and he isn’t too happy at me for this one – but I’m taking Pistons +4.

I think this is going to be an extremely close game. The Bucks have had their issues this season but come into this one on a 3 game win streak with Ws over the Spurs and Grizzlies.

The Pistons are playing their first road game since outright domination at home. While they lost their last road game to the Lakers they beat the Warriors and Clippers before that so have shown their ability on the road. Probably just underrestimated the Lakers more than anything else.

I love everything I am seeing from the Pistons tonight and against Vins wishes, I’m backing them. Boy he’s gonna be pissed if the Bucks pull it off.

Very tempted by Wizards +1 tonight but man – over the last games between the two, the Heat have just been a bad matchup for them. I see a lot of people on the Wizards tonight but I can’t advise it. Just one of those eternal matchups where one team seems to have the other one figurd out.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the lateness in the tips today. Just been absolutely swamped.

It was a 1-1 night last night.

We lost with the Pelicans -9. They won the game but didn’t cover the spread after having to battle the whole way after the Hawks got off to a 32-23 1st quarter.

Darius Miller was the hero for the Pelicans in that one and the dude was clutch. He hit 4 great 3 pointers in the last quarter of the game and won them the game.

Our other pick was Timberwolves -3.5. That was a nice and easy one as the Timberwolves dominated the Utah Jazz from the get-go. The T’Wolves won that one 109-98 thanks to a great game from Towns and his double double.

Jazz missing Gobert really hurt them. That was a big loss for them and they really had no idea what to do without him.

Only 3 games tonight. Quiet night in the NBA.

Celtics vs Nets Betting Tips:

Can anyone top the Boston Celtics? After losing their first two they have banded together and are on an incredible run with 12 wins in a row. They face a Brooklyn Nets team reeling from that loss to the Utah Jazz.

It’s hard to see the Nets hanging with the Celtics in this one. The Nets to their credit have gotten some nice wins at home but the Celtics are a team that just don’t give up and on the road they are always looking to rack up the points.

Irving is in tonight which is a boost but even if he wasn’t we’d probably take the Celtics here. Brooklyn are without Russell which is a nice little bonus as well.

The Celtics should dominate this one and Irving should be nice and pumped for this one.

Celtics -6.

Mavericks vs Spurs Betting Tips:

Only real concern is this one is the Spurs last 3 road performances. Their last 4 game road trip saw them beat the Heat before getting pounded by the Magic, Pacers and Celtics.

Mavs are really struggling through and other than that surprising win over the Wizards they haven’t won a game since the 25th.

This just seems like the type of game where the Spurs should beat up on them and beat up on them hard.

Spurs -6.5
