After a month of regular season in the NBA the situation in the two conferences sees the Lakers lead the western conference with 11 wins and 3 losses and the Bucks lead the eastern with 9 wins and 4 losses.
Tonight a very intense program with many matches on which we offer accurate predictions prepared by our experts.
NEW YORK KNICKS (6-8) vs ORLANDO MAGIC (6-7)
Teams very close to each other in the fight for eighth useful place on the Atlantic coast. Orlando recovering from 5 consecutive knockouts and with a very long injury list that cannot but condition the match. Despite this, the market hangs very slightly for the guests and we go against this forecast, trusting NY that comes from an excellent win against Boston.
ATLANTA HAWKS (5-7) vs MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (3-8)
Tenth in the east against last in the west. A game in which the hosts will start with a handicap of 7.5 points. Both teams have some absences but we expect an aggressive approach from Atlanta. Minnesota went to the locker room at half-time in 7 of their last 9 games. Our prediction is therefore on Atlanta to win in the first half.
MIAMI HEAT (4-7) vs DETROIT PISTONS (3-9)
Twelfth against fifteenth in the eastern conference. Pistons won against odds by 20 points. The vice world champions have started the season very badly and have several doubts in the starting 5 including Butler. We don’t believe in Detroit’s back-to-back but in a match where the visiting team can play until the last one. Let’s go to handicap 2 (5.5).
PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS (8-5) vs SAN ANTONIO SPURS (7-6)
One of the many really uncertain races of this NBA night as they face the fifth and sixth forces on the Pacific coast. Both teams come from a win. We believe that the higher technical rate of Lillard and associates can make a difference so we trust the hosts in the head to head.
MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES (6-6) vs PHOENIX SUNS (7-4)
Eighth to fourth in the western in a match between two teams that are certainly doing better than what the experts would have expected from them. Grizzlies in crazy shape with 4 wins in a row including that of a certain level against the Nets and Sixers. We ride the wave of the golden age of the Jenkins boys and try them out convinced that the underdog is very attractive.
BROOKLYN NETS (8-6) vs MILWAUKEE BUCKS (9-4)
Fifth against the first in the eastern conference in what is undoubtedly the big match of the night. With the recent arrival of Harden, the hosts can look at everyone from top to bottom even if it is obvious that from theory to practice. It’s hard to say who will win, but the impression is that we could have a point-to-point race. The X in 1 × 2 with 5.5 points margin is our choice.
TORONTO RAPTORS (4-8) vs DALLAS MAVERICKS (6-6)
Thirteenth in the east versus seventh in the west in a match between two teams coming from opposite rows: two consecutive victories for the Canadians transplanted to Tampa for this season’s home matches and two knockouts in a row for Doncic and associates. Texans have several absences which could also pay very dearly for this night. Our advice goes to 1 in the head to head.
CHICAGO BULLS (5-8) vs HOUSTON ROCKETS (4-7)
Eleventh in the east versus thirteenth in the west in what according to the quotes is a coin toss competition (50 and 50). Hosts who, after a series of consecutive knockouts, have redeemed themselves by beating Dallas. Guests who orphans of Harden risk reporting the worst season of the last 20 years. Hosts who in the last 10 races have held an average total points of 238 (very high). The 218.5 expected by the bookmakers seem very few to us. Let’s go… OVER
LOS ANGELES LAKERS (11-3) vs GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS (6-6)
We close with the Staple Center match between the leaders in the western and the ninth strength of this conference. The gap between the two teams is too high to disagree with the odds market which sees 8.5 handicap points (the highest spread of the night). Plus the guests are without Thompson. We believe that Lebron and associates will have no problem covering the expected handicap.
