NBA Betting Picks For Tonight
There are four great games on the NBA schedule tonight, and you can bet on any one of them at the William Hill sportsbook. There are three matchups between projected playoff teams and one superstar is expected to return after a nine-week absence. If you want to watch a game without betting on it, here are some great picks: Sacramento Kings vs. Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics vs. Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks, and Milwaukee Bucks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
Sacramento Kings vs Orlando Magic
There are a few things to watch for in Sacramento’s game against the Magic. For starters, the Kings have won both home and away games against Orlando in recent years. In addition, Sacramento is 7-3 in its last 10 games against the Magic, and the last matchup was a highlight-filled barnburner. If Sacramento can get Fox and Sabonis back, then they should cover the spread. If they don’t, however, Sacramento should be able to cover the spread.
Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors
The NBA playoffs are here, and it’s time for another showdown between two original franchises. The Warriors made six straight appearances in the finals, including winning last year’s series with the Dallas Mavericks. This time around, the Warriors have a chance to clinch the championship with a win in the series finale. But first, let’s take a look at the Celtics. The Celtics have a good record at home, and they’ve won their last five games in a row against the Warriors.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Dallas Mavericks
The Los Angeles Lakers have a chance to beat the Dallas Mavericks in a playoff game tonight, but if LeBron James is out, the team may have to look elsewhere. LeBron James suffered a left ankle sprain in Sunday’s game when he landed on the foot of Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes. In spite of this, James finished with 39 points on 14-of-27 shooting, including 7-of-13 from three-point range. Dallas is still in the playoff race, though. The Mavericks moved into fourth place in the Western Conference and are now within a game of the third-place Golden State Warriors.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers
If you’re looking for a good basketball game to watch tonight, you’ve come to the right place. This game features two teams that are in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Bucks have had a slow start to the season, but they have picked up steam recently. They currently sit second in the Eastern Conference, just two games behind the Miami Heat. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads this team in scoring with 25.3 points per game.
Atlanta Hawks vs New Orleans Pelicans
The Atlanta Hawks struggled to get their offense going in the first half and were outscored by the Pelicans by a combined 19 points in the second quarter. Atlanta’s defense was unable to stop the Pelicans, who shot 9 of 26 from the field and got 12 from Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans. The Pelicans took a 42-39 halftime lead. The Pelicans’ primary players got most of the playing time, as the Hawks’ rookies and free agents did not get much action until the fourth quarter.
