Tip – Lou Williams hit the first buzzer-beater in his career on Sunday, putting a stamp on Los Angeles’ recent stellar run, and likely punching a ticket for the Clippers in this year’s playoffs. In the midst of their recent success, they’ve also cemented themselves as one of more popular betting sites teams in all of basketball. The Clippers have been one of the hotter teams in the NBA over their last ten games, winning eight of those games and covering the spread in seven of them. Yet, it’s the Pacers who have dominated the head-to-head matchup as of late. The Pacers are undefeated ATS in Los Angeles over their last six games vs. the Clippers. Road teams have also gone 9-4 ATS over the last 13 meetings.

BOS Celtics at PHI 76ers

Tip – Brett Brown believes his ‘6ers own the best starting five in all of basketball, and if their recent play holds any weight, Brown may be onto something. Philly is 7-3 SU in their last ten games, and 4-1 SU at home over that same span. While Boston may have bounced back from their mid season drama, they are still not a team worthy of trusting with your money. The Celtics have won just two games ATS over their last ten. Boston has, however, hit the OVER in four consecutive games after going UNDER in six straight contests.

TOR Raptors at OKC Thunder

Tip – If you’ve bet against OKC over the past month, chances are your pockets are fairly hefty at the moment. The Thunder are a miserable 3-11 ATS over their last 14 games, and they’ve also hit the under in four consecutive games. The Raptors are coming off of a season high 73-point first half outing against the Knicks on Monday night. Toronto, owners of the second most wins in all of basketball, has hit or pushed the OVER in four of their last five games. This isn’t the last these two teams will see each other this week. They will follow up Wednesday’s game with a matchup on Friday in Toronto, where the Raptors are 28-7 on the season.

Tip – Two of the more disappointing teams in the NBA over the last month, neither Indiana nor Golden State own a record over .500 in their last ten games. Golden State still owns the best record in the West, going 24-10 in Oracle this season. While Indiana is just 2-8 over their last ten road games vs. teams with winning home records. If you’re looking for a sure thing, bet the O/U on Thursday night. Both teams have combined to hit the UNDER in 13 consecutive games.

Tip – We just discussed how poorly Indiana has been on the road in recent weeks. Well good news for the Pacers, Denver travels to them on Sunday. The Nuggets come in losing three of their last four games ATS. Indiana has been a tremendous bet against the Western Conference, and more specifically, the Northwest division. Indiana has gone undefeated ATS in their last five games vs. the Northwest.
