Warriors and Rockets Face Easy Wins, Cavs and Celtics Bound for Hard Games
Warriors and Rockets Set to Win Easy Battles
On Saturday, March 17, the Houston Rockets will go head to head with the New Orleans Pelicans. Although the Rockets suffered a surprising loss against the Toronto Raptors on March 9, ending their 17-win streak, they have won their last three games and are back on track as one of the strongest teams this season, currently priced at +333 to win the NBA title according to Betway. The Pelicans, who stand at +501 to win the Southwest Division according to 888sport should be no match for them.
The San Antonio Spurs also stand at +501 to win the Southwest Division according to 888sport and they have suffered a lot of injured players lately and the absence of their great Kawhi Leonard who is yet to return. With their morale low, they barely stand a chance on March 19 against reigning champions Golden State Warriors – currently priced at –166.67 to win the championship again, according to Betway.
Cavaliers Face Difficult Games against Bucks, Raptors
The Cleveland Cavaliers will have a few tough games ahead of them as they battle the Milwaukee Bucks on March 19 and then the Toronto Raptors on March 21. The Bucks are currently priced third in line to win the Central Division at +1100, behind Cavaliers who rank first at -285.71, according to 888sport. Yet the Milwaukee team has proven a fierce opponent, losing matches with narrow margins and giving their opponents a run for their money. The win will probably go to the Cavs, but it will be a hard victory – they lost to the Bucks last time they met on December 19.
It will be even harder for the Cavs to defeat the Raptors, who come off a 7-win streak since the start of March. The Boston Celtics will finish the week of on March 23 with a difficult game against the Portland Trail Blazers, who have been at the top of their game lately. Yet the Celtics, priced at +1300 to win the NBA Championship against the Blazers’ odds at +10000, according to Betway, should be able to bring this one home.
