There are plenty of NBA matches to bet on this week, and as usual, Justin Simelane has prepared his betting tips for two of Wednesday morning’s matches. Feel free to add his tips to your bet slip.

19 April 01:00 Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

In the first game between the two the under came and the reason was the Hawks could not convert any threes, with 29 attempts they only made 5 threes the entire game. The Hawks do not want to lose game two and will be more competitive heading into this one, with both sides being competitive this game the bet to take is the over, it has a higher value. The Celtics will not have trouble scoring against this Atlanta defense that allowed 118.1 points during the regular season.

Suggested Bet: Over 225

19 April 01:30 Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

The Cavs lost game two and they know to win this one not only do they have to outscore the Knicks but they have to be even better defensively. The cavs were bottom 3 during the regular season when it came to pace and were a top 2 side when it came down to points allowed per game. The Under for this game is set at 214.5 which is high considering last game they couldn’t get over 200. Don’t overthink this one take the under for game 2.

Suggested Bet: Under 220

19 April 04:00 Phoenix Suns v LA Clippers

The line is too big for this Suns team to cover and we have to capitalise on that and bet on the underdog here. The Suns have a good starting lineup but their bench does not match the Clippers’. The Clippers have depth and are the better team defensively. Even if the Suns win this game it won’t be a blowout. Kawhi Leonard and Russ are going to make sure this game stays competitive and that’ll result in the spread for the Clippers being covered.

Suggested Bet: LA Clippers +12.5
