NBA Betting Picks

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Boston Celtics @ TD Garden

The Boston Celtics have battled back from a 15-17 record to get to 17-17. It has been a tough stretch for Boston, but wins over Indiana and Washington could help turn the tide.

It was a nail-biting win for the Celtics, which trailed the Wizards late in the game. Jayson Tatum came up clutch and it should give them confidence before facing the Clippers.

Los Angeles continues its road trip which has yielded mixed results. It comes off a 105-100 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, which was its third loss from five games.

The Clippers weren’t able to stop Giannis on the fourth quarter and despite owning better statistics than Boston, they could struggle to win this game.

Boston scored a 119-115 in their meeting earlier this season and we fancy the Celtics to take a 2-0 advantage of the Western Conference Clippers.

Punters should get value odds for the home side as Los Angeles is a public betting team.

Bet: Boston Celtics to win

Denver Nuggets vs. Milwaukee Bucks @ Fiserv Forum

Milwaukee had been struggling this season but it has fought back with five consecutive wins, including one over Los Angeles.

The Bucks scored only 105 points in the victory, but they scored totals of 128, 139 and 129 points in their previous three wins. It has been a good fight back from the Bucks, which has improved to a record of 21-13.

Denver is keeping its head above water at 18-15, but the injuries are starting to take their toll. The Nuggets have R.J. Hampton, Gary Harris and Paul Millsap on the sidelines for this game, which puts a lot of pressure on Nikola Jokic.

The big man is averaging 26.7 points, 10.9 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game, so there is plenty to like about his stat line. He single-handedly wins Denver many games and he’s a great asset to have.

We’re expecting a close game on Wednesday, where the advantage could be with the Bucks. They are flying after five consecutive wins and they are known for going on long winning streaks.

Most of the early money should come for the Bucks, which look set to improve on their 14-4 record at Fiserv Forum.

Bet: Milwaukee Bucks to win

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers @ STAPLES Center

Phoenix has rattled off four wins from its last five games and that includes quality wins over Memphis and Portland.

The Suns are a team capable of making a deep run in the playoffs this season, especially with Chris Paul and Devin Booker playing some of their best basketball.

However, they face a real challenge on Wednesday when travelling to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers, which have bounced back from a losing streak.

The Lakers lost three consecutive games before beating Portland and Golden State. The 117-91 win over Golden State was a good outing and LeBron James is starting to heat up.

James is averaging 25.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game to lead his team in every major statistical category. Despite a poor average from the free throw line, James is shooting at over 50 percent from the field.

A healthy Lakers team is tough to beat and with some new found confidence, they should be firm favourites to beat the Suns.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the Suns kept this game close, but James and Anthony Davis should have enough firepower to close out the game in the fourth quarter.

Bet: Los Angeles Lakers to win
