At Bet Central, we bring you daily NBA betting tips via NBA punter Justin Simelane. The NBA has been unpredictable of late but please stay tuned to this page for the best betting tips, every day for you.
22 Mar 01:00 Cleveland Cavaliers v LA Lakers
There are many teams to bet on in the NBA when playing away and the Lakers right now are not one of them. They have only won once in 13 games when playing away. The Cavs are a good side defensively and know how to rebound and the Lakers give up a lot of possession with turnovers, bet on the home side.
22 Mar 01:00 Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers
The Pistons are too much of a good team to lose to what is basically a ‘G-League’ side the Blazers. This Blazers side rarely covers the spread and playing away in Detroit they should be blown away.
22 Mar 02:00 Houston Rockets v Washington Wizards
It’s highly unlikely, but the Wizards are not yet ruled out of postseason contention so they will be playing for something in this game, unlike the last seed Rockets. This Wizards side beat the Lakers without Kyle Kuzma but he should be back for this game and he’ll be fresh to lead his side to an away win.
22 Mar 02:00 Chicago Bulls v Toronto Raptors
The Bulls are clearly not the same as they were earlier in the season and are ending off on a bad run as they are now starting to feel the pressure. The Raptors know they can’t afford to lose any game right now as they are sitting in a play-in spot and are very close to the Cavs. Even if they don’t win, I expect the Raptors to bring their competitiveness and cover the spread.
