February 5th, 2019 NBA Betting Tips

GraemeWritten by Graeme

Well that’s me recovered from the Super Bowl shenanigans and back to hopefully deliver my run of winning NBA Tips.

I went perfect in all 3 days I covered last week so hoping for more of that.

Yesterday was an 0-2 day as the bad luck continues with those half points. We had the Houston Rockets -8.5. Annoyingly when Vin started writing the tips, Rockets were -8. However when he went to post them he saw the WA line had changed. We like to be fair with the tips so we always post the WA line at that time. Alas it came back to bite us as the Rockets won by exactly 8.

Brutal.

We had the Nets +7 as Vin went against his beloved Bucks and that bit him on the ass. For the Bucks I am looking at the future there. March is going to be a brutal month for them and I expect to fade them however this month I think we should be backing them or just staying away. They’re going to make the most of it in February knowing March is going to be tough.

It’s Tuesday, February 5th and we’ve got 8 games on the board. Celtics want to keep their run going as they head to Cleveland. Lakers look to bounce back in Indiana and can the Knicks end their losing streak?

Should be a good night. Raps vs Philly is the marquee game of the evening.

Lakers vs Pacers Betting Tips:

Pacers come home after a 4 game road trip where they generally play well. However they have had recent losses here against some of the better sides such as the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers. THey do have that solid win over the Raps sandwiched in there.

They had a 5 game losing streak but turned it around with a tight win over the Heat then another over the Pelicans.

However they still don’t look like they have overcome the Oladipo injury. McMillan keeps trying new lineups and nothing is working out.

It’s all about LeBron James here. If he is back he’ll want to play with a vengeance. He sat out the Warriors game and will want to erase that memory quickly.

Lakers -2.5 IF LeBron plays

Magic vs Thunder Betting Tips:

Thunder had their winning streak snapped against the Celtics but good news coming out of that one was the performance of Russell Westbrook who looks to be heating up big time.

I think Thunder will bounce back strong here. Orlando have a few injuries and while they’re fighting for the playoffs, I think when you look at the schedule, they won’t push too hard against Thunder or the Bucks prior to the break.

We’ll see their biggest games being againts the Timberwolves, Hawks, Hornets and Pelicans.

They’re not a big fourth quarter team so I can see Thunder getting a nice lead then retaining it while Magic relax a bit and focus on the next one.

Thunder -9.5

Clippers vs Hornets Betting Tips:

Hornets are looking to make it 3-0 and they are at home where they always perform lately.

They’ve got a tough game tomorrow night and I feel that will have an impact – they’ll push hard in this one knowing a loss is highly possible tomorrow.

Cody Zeller may be back – boy I hope so – but I like the Hornets to do it regardless.

Hornets -3.5
