January 9th, 2019 NBA Betting Tips

GraemeWritten by Graeme

A 1-1 night last night.

I’m very happy about one of those picks in particular – the Cavs one coming in. That was one where all the metrics felt like Pacers would run riot. I just had a feeling Cavs would fight and they did so despite a scary 1st quarter.

Lost with the Heat vs the Nuggets unfortunately. Big performance from Jokic.

I mentioned I liked the Suns yesterday so hopefully some of you got on that. Wasn’t an official tip but good to see them get that win over the Kings.

Another busy slate tonight with 10 games on the board. The poor Cavs after that hard fought game have to go to New Orleans where surely it will be 11 losses in a row. The Grizzlies look to end their 6 game skid as they host the hot San Antonio Spurs and Bucks take on the Rockets in the big game of the night.

Pelicans vs Cavaliers Betting Tips:

It’s a massive point spread but unfortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers I think they’re going to really struggle here.

They’re on a back to back after a tough battle last night and have to travel. They’re going against a Pelicans team that just won back to backs and want to keep going. They crushed the Cavs in Cleveland a few nights ago and I just don’t think Cavs have it in them for revenge.

Pelicans are having fun kicking the crap out of teams. After the demolition job they performed on the Cavaliers they did the same against the Grizzlies two nights later.

Cavs lost Larry Nance Jr as well yesterday. I just think Cavs will not be able to keep up here.

Pelicans -14

Grizzlies vs Spurs Betting Tips:

I mean at -3 how do you not take the Spurs here? They’re on a roll and playing well and they really want to keep that going. They’ve slayed some big teams like the Raptors and Celtics and thumped the Gruzzlies recently.

On top of that the Spurs still struggle on the road so that is something where they will want to improve upon and that should motivate them here.

Grizzlies are a team who are looking like they have lost their way. After getting those wins over the Cavs/Lakers in December they got thumped by the Celtics and Rockets as a reminder of their skill level. That’s seriously hurt their confidence.

Rudy Gay will be out for the Spurs but he was out against the Pistons too. Spurs have the depth and should take this one comfortably in my opinion by about 7 points.

Spurs -3
