NBA betting sites are well on their way to having one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory. The intrigue around the Miami Heat is unmatched, and while they are not winning like expected, bettors are anxiously awaiting the day they put it together and start blowing teams out.
While Miami has Tuesday night off, there are plenty of interesting things going on around the Association to keep bettors busy.
One of the most interesting matchups on Tuesday is the Atlanta Hawks against the Indiana Pacers. The Hawks are 1.5 point favorites on the road. While this is a game worth watching, betting should be avoided. Both the Pacers and Hawks are extremely unpredictable. The Pacers have blown a couple teams out and then lost by ten the next night.
The Hawks have long been known to take nights off. They have all of the talent in the world, but sometimes come out lazy. Nobody knows what version of these teams will show up on Tuesday. Keep an eye on the game, but don’t bet on it.
One game that is a good wager at top sports betting sites is the Chicago Bulls on the road against the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are favored by 1.5 points in this game. While they struggled early in the season, Houston seems to be getting their act together lately. However, star center Yao Ming recently sprained his ankle and is questionable for this game.
Keep an eye on the injury report before you place your bets. If Yao is playing, expect the Rockets to cover the spread and take down the Bulls. If he is out, the Bulls will easily defeat the home team.
The over/under pick of the day is the New York Knicks against the Denver Nuggets. The over/under for the game is set at 216.5. These teams will have no trouble eclipsing that mark. Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni is known for his flashy offense without much defense. Likewise, the Nuggets have a high-powered offense led by Carmelo Anthony. Expect both teams to light it up and score over 216.5 total.
