There’s some NBA action in the early hours of Saturday morning, and as usual, Justin Simelane has prepared some betting tips for three matches. Feel free to take his tips and use them on your bet slip.
28 Jan 02:00 Indiana Pacers v Milwaukee Bucks
Kris Middleton continues to work his way into full fitness, he came off the bench in the Bucks’ win against the Nuggets. This Milwaukee team is certainly aiming for a championship this season once and in a game like this they should win.
The Pacers still remain without Tyrese for this game and that’s why I’m not backing them, without Tyrese Haliburton they have managed to gradually drop from the standings to now sitting under 500. Take Milwaukee to cover the spread here.
28 Jan 03:00 Oklahoma City Thunder v Cleveland Cavaliers
One of the best underdogs to cover the spread all season has been the thunder, and I’m taking them here. OKC with 23 wins all season 14 of which have been from home, in their last 10 games they are 7-3. Cleveland is playing back-to-back here, OKC has only lost once at home in their last 5. This OKC team has some of the best chemistry you can see on the court, take them here with a spread.
28 Jan 05:00 Golden State Warriors v Toronto Raptors
Here you get a team that is very good on the offence and a team that is very good at playing defence. Home advantage is something to never take lightly in the NBA and I’m taking Golden State to win this game.
The Raptors are not a bad offensive side but they will get outscored here, Raptors defend the perimeter well but the Warriors love shooting threes. The last time these two played, the Warriors won and Steph Curry didn’t even feature in that game. In the last 3 head to head games between the two at the Chase Center, the Warriors have come out on top 3 times. Take them to make it four here.
