The NBA action continues into the early hours of Wednesday morning as we attempt to follow-up our winning 7/1 four-fold from yesterday.
NBA Betting Tips
- Boston Celtics @ Oklahoma City Thunder – Celtics (-8.5)
- Sacramento Kings @ Utah Jazz – Jazz on the Money Line
Boston Celtics @ Oklahoma City Thunder – Celtics (-8.5) – 10/11
The Celtics won the first matchup between these two sides 126-122, and I’m expecting a bigger margin of victory this time.
Boston fell to the Denver Nuggets last time out, and will be looking to respond here, while the Thunder are entering this matchup after losing to the Philadelphia 76ers, 115-96.
The Celtics remain top of the Eastern Conference standings, and they have been impressive to watch, particularly on the defensive end.
I’m going to trust the Celtics on the road here and back them on the point spread.
Sacramento Kings @ Utah Jazz – Jazz on the Money Line – 20/29
The Kings have been pretty unpredictable lately, going 5-6 in their last 11 games overall.
They lost to the Memphis Grizzlies last time out, but prior to that defeat, they won back-to-back games against the Nuggets and the Jazz.
Meanwhile, Utah have lost their last four games, with their most recent defeat coming at the hands of the Miami Heat.
The key in this clash is that both teams struggle to defend, so I can see a high-scoring affair taking place in Salt Lake City. I’m leaning slightly in favour of a Utah win, mainly because they are at home, and are desperate to snap this losing streak.
I’m taking the Jazz on the money line.
