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.
