Three games tip off across the NBA tonight, with a Bucks-76ers matchup featuring two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference while Stephen Curry and the Warriors try to bust their trend as one of the worst cover teams in the league. We’re here to bring you the must-read betting notes from around the Association to help you make the best wagers.
Two beasts in the East
The 76ers and Bucks have split their most recent 10 games in the head-to-head. The Bucks have the best road record in the Association on the road at 26-14, and the 76ers have won 30 of 39 at home. In their most recent meeting, the 76ers pulled off the road upset 130-125 putting up 62 points at halftime.
Both the Bucks and the 76ers have been very efficient in the first half of games. Over the most recent three games, the Bucks and 76ers rank first and third in first quarter points per game with Philadelphia averaging 36, and Milwaukee averaging 35.3. With both teams averaging 47 percent or better from the field and shooting the ball well early, back the first quarter total Over 57.
Back the Bucks Big Man
Milwaukee’s Brook Lopez is in a favorable position versus a 76ers squad who have struggled to defend opposing centers allowing 24.3 points on 53.9 percent shooting and 13.6 rebounds per game. In their previous two meetings this season, Lopez shot 7 of 13 from the floor, and 5 of 11 from beyond the arc for 21 points, then 4 of 11 from the floor with three made 3-point shots for 14 points. Look for him to take advantage of the matchup and back Over his points total of 13.5.
The Cavaliers travel to Sacramento as 9.5-point underdogs and have only won six of 39 games on the road this season. In the most recent three games in the head-to-head, the Kings have outscored Cleveland 111-102, shooting just shy of 52 percent from the floor.
Last time these two teams met up, Sacramento’s Marvin Bagley III went 8 of 9 from the floor for 17 points. He has scored 16 or more points in seven of the most recent nine games, and looks to build off his rookie year success. Back Over his points total of 17.5.
Getting out to an early lead
The Cavaliers have really struggled in the first half of games away from home averaging only 49.9 points, which is second-worst in the Association. The Kings will be at full strength today and enter averaging 56.7 first-half points.
Without Kevin Love for the third straight game, the Cavaliers might struggle to put up points, especially early on where the Kings have excelled. Back the Kings on the first-half spread of 5.5-points.
The Warriors are 13-point favorites as they travel to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. The Warriors have won seven of the last 10 games and have scored over 130 points in two of their most recent three outings.
The Warriors should put this game away early versus a Lakers team who surrender 113.7 points a game. Look for Stephen Curry to continue his hot shooting and go Over his points total of 24.5. Instead of getting -120 odds at a standard bet, look for “Players points/team win” on PointsBet and take the Warriors to win and Stephen Curry Over 24.5 points to increase the potential payout.
