There's a limited choice if you're tuning into the NBA on Tuesday night. With just three games on the schedule, fans and bettors can really focus on the matchups!
The New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons look to improve their standing in the Eastern Conference. The Dallas Mavericks are looking to get back on the winning track against a red-hot Golden State Warriors team. And the LA Clippers hope to take down Western Conference rivals the Portland Trail Blazers.
Let's check out the bets!
When: 7:00 PM EST
|New York Knicks||-4.5 (-110)||O 224.5 (-109)||-190|
|Detroit Pistons||+4.5 (-110)||U 224.5 (-112)||+155|
The New York Knicks enter this game on a two-game losing streak, dropping their last game to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Detroit Pistons are on a two-game losing streak of their own, dropping their last game to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Knicks are currently 11th in the East, owning the league's ninth-best scoring offence (114.6) - unfortunately, they also own the league's fifth-worst scoring defence (116.9). The Pistons on the other hand rank 25th in scoring offence (109.1) and scoring defence (116.7), to go along with the fact that they are missing four key players.
The Knicks have the advantage if through injury advantage alone. Detroit are gritty and get to the free-throw line, but the Knicks have the advantage on both ends of the court.
When: 7:30 PM EST
|Golden State Warriors||+1.0 (-115)||O 226.5 (-110)||-110|
|Dallas Mavericks||-1.0 (-115)||U 226.5 (-110)||-110|
The Golden State Warriors enter this game looking to build on their three-game winning streak. On the flip side, the Dallas Mavericks are entering this game on a four-game losing streak.
Still one of the league's top-scoring teams, the Warriors own the league's third-best scoring offence (117.8), but the 28th-ranked scoring defence (117.3). The Dallas Mavericks are the opposite of the Warriors in that regard, owning the league's 26th-ranked scoring offence (109.1) and third-best scoring defence (107.3).
It's a tight matchup between these two teams, but the Warriors' versatility should be the difference maker. Dallas are have been far too dependent on Luka Doncic to produce their positive results.
When: 7:30 PM EST
|LA Clippers||+3.5 (-110)||O 215.5 (-110)||+132|
|Portland Trail Blazers||-3.5 (-110)||U 215.5 (-110)||-156|
The LA Clippers will feel confident as they enter this game off the back of a win. The Portland Trail Blazers on the other hand are coming off of a loss in their last match.
Known for their hard-nosed defence, the LA Clippers famously own the league's second-best scoring defence (106.8) while also maintaining the best field-goal efficiency allowed (44.5%). The Trail Blazers' ninth-best scoring defence is nothing to scoff at though (110.3), but their scoring will be lacking without Damian Lillard in the lineup.
Expect a tight affair despite Portland's short-handed team. The Clippers aren't the highest-scoring team in the league, but they should be able to shut down a Portland team that's lacking its leader.
