2015/16 NBA Betting Tips – February 6

February 5, 2016 by Posted in NBA Tips

NBA Boston vs ClevelandWe’ve had two rough NBA days in a row and need to put a stop to it today. Lots happening around the association as the NBA All-Star break draws near. The trade deadline is also an interesting subplot to keep an eye on. Will some contenders make a move or two like is usually the way?

Joe Johnson is one player who we think might be a good addition to a playoff bound team if the Nets indeed buy out the remaining portion of his contract.

Our best bets for NBA Saturday in Australia are below.

Boston @ Cleveland 11:40 AEDT

This will be a fun game no doubt, Boston move the ball well and can score plenty of points while the Cavs have three all-star calibre players on the roster. Coach Brad Stevens has got this team playing as well as they really can without an A level superstar. Which they should consider dealing for with some of those picks they have!

The biggest factor to consider when handicapping this game is how well the Cavaliers match-up on the Celtics. Iman Shumpert is a straight-up Isaiah Thomas stopper. His size worries ‘Little Buckets’ whom the Celts rely on to score in crunch time. Kevin Love hasn’t had the bad season the media would have you believe despite still being a matador on defense. There will be plenty of points scored in this game and the Cavs just look to have too many weapons!

Suggested bet: Cleveland -7 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 80%

LA Clippers @ Orlando 11:10 AEDT

Interesting game for a few reasons, the Clippers are 15-4 without star power forward Blake Griffin and the Magic have fallen apart in January. They are however playing slightly better than their record suggests evidenced by the performance in Oklahoma City a few nights ago. That was a career night for our man Victor Oladipo.

The Magic are above .500 at home (13-11) and we think they can break their string of bad outs with a confidence boosting win at home. Game was assessed a pick’em so taking the four points on the Magic looks a no brainer.

Suggested bet: Orlando +4 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 75%

Philadelphia @ Washington 11:10 AEDT

The Eastern Conference playoff race is going to go down to the wire this year so games like this for the Washington Wizards are incredibly important. They’ve won just one game in their past six but have faced five teams above .500 during that stretch. Their next four games are against teams below .500 and they must win three of them to stay in touch in the East.

We thought they were a bit star struck against the Golden State Warriors two nights ago but eventually found their groove and at least competed with them throughout the night. The 76ers nearly upset the Warriors on the weekend but turned in a stinker against the Hawks at home three nights later. They are up and down and have little incentive to win. Take the Wizards and back John Wall and Bradley Beal who is slowly getting healthy again to get the job done.

Suggested bet: Washington -9 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 75%
