This Week’s Stand-out NBA Matches
There are a number of key NBA matches taking place this week, with the action arriving thick and fast once again. As we edge towards the end of the regular season, momentum at this stage of the campaign can often be key and there are a number of teams jostling for position at the top of the standings. The top two in the Eastern Conference meet at the Air Canada Centre, and it should be a fascinating battle. The Raptors snuck past the Grizzlies on the 4th February with a score of 101-86 but needed their bench to provide the inspiration once more. A shuffle of the pack may be required here and they unsurprisingly begin as the odds-on favourite for this clash. At home, they have a winning percentage of 0.840 and have clocked up over 100 points in each of their last four matches here. They should be backed to continue their decent home form.
It’s a busy week for the Boston Celtics, who have a season record of 39-15 as they travel to face the Washington Wizards just two days later. The Celtics have the best road record in the Eastern Conference and should be backed to continue that terrific run of form.
Golden State Warriors Continue Their Domination
The Golden State Warriors have impressed at the top of the Western Conference so far this season and are now -200 favourites with Bodog Sports to top the divisional standings. They face the out of form Oklahoma City Thunder, who have slipped down the standings in recent days after a tiring schedule of five matches in seven days. After losing four in a row, they won’t relish this trip to the Oracle Arena and the hosts should be backed on the -10.5 points spread to prevail easily at -110 with Bet Online.
A much tougher assignment awaits as they travel to face the San Antonio Spurs just a couple of days later. Both sides have been involved in some very high-scoring games as of late and this looks set to be a hugely entertaining affair in which going Overs on the points seems a sensible proposition.
