NBA Tips and Previews, Wednesday 21st April

Tips, Previews and all you need ahead of Wednesday's NBA action

New Orleans and Brooklyn steal the show ahead of the Wednesday’s best NBA bets and selections. 

Check out the previews from all five fixtures below!

Orlando @ Atlanta

April 21st 9:30am

The Orlando Magic takes to the the road when it takes on the high flying Atlanta Hawks at the State Farm Arena.

It’s been a complete contrast in form between both sides with the Magic labouring to a 18-39 record after trading Nikola Vucevic to the Chicago Bulls, while the Hawks have gone from strength to strength after a 129-117 win over the Indiana Pacers saw their season winning record extend to 31-26. 

The Trae Young and Clint Capela show was in full swing against the Pacers with Young bucketing home 34 points alongside Capela’s 25-point and 24-rebound display. 

This is the kind of form which will ensure the Hawks are guaranteed a playoffs position this season and are presented a golden opportunity to make it win number 32  against a Magic team who have only managed 2 wins from their last 10 fixtures. 

Suggested Bet: Atlanta Hawks -12.5 point spread at $1.94

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Atlanta Hawks -12.5 point spread 
Leg 2: T. Young over 26.5 points
Leg 3: C. Capela over 12.5
Combined odds = $4.75

Charlotte @ New York

April 21st 9:30am

The New York Knicks will attempt to extend their six-game winning streak when they battle the Charlotte Hornets.

A pulsating 122-112 overtime win against the New Orleans Pelicans ensured the Knicks held onto its unbeaten run. 

Meanwhile, the Hornets broke a four-game run of outs to defeat the Portland Trail Blazers 109-101 on Sunday and in the process even their season ledger at 28-28. 

Despite the Knicks being on a tear, the Hornets will take confidence not only from their win against the Trail Blazers but a 109-88 victory against the Hornets earlier this year. 

However, the big query in this fixture will be the fitness of Devonte Graham who managed 19 points and seven assists in the 21-point rout. 

George Hayward also proved pivotal in the win with 34 points but the finger fracture he suffered earlier this year will keep him out. 

Suggested Bet: New York Knicks -6.5 at $1.96. 

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: J. Embiid 10.5+ Rebounds
Leg 2. J. Embiid 31.5 + Points 
Leg 3. Warriors +5.5
Combined Odds: $4

Brookyln @ New Orleans

April 21st 9:30am

The Brooklyn Nets will aim to inflict more defeat upon the New Orleans Pelicans who peter on the edge of a potential four-game losing streak. 

While the Nets have been ‘stop start’ in the last five fixtures, the Pelicans have been unable to arrest a form dip having now lost three matches in a row after a 122-112 overtime defeat to the in form New York Knicks. 

The exciting part of this game is the battle between two of the top scorers in the NBA when Kyrie Irving – ranked seventh in the league with 27.3 points per game – meets Zion Williamson who scores at 26.8 points per game to sit eighth on the scoring chart. 

Brooklyn already have the wood over the Pelicans this year after asserting their authority with a 139-111 scoring avalanche back on April 8. 

Kevin Durant marked his return from a hamstring strain in the win but he will miss this reverse fixture after copping a hard knock to the thigh during the 109-107 loss against Miami on Sunday. 

Pelicans to bounce back at home!

Suggested Bet: New Orleans Pelicans -2.5 point spread at $1.91

Los Angeles Clippers @ Portland

April 21st 12:00pm

The Portland Trail Blazers hope to conjure up some magic with Damian Lillard out with an injury and the Los Angeles Clippers coming to town for a visit.

Things didn’t go according to plan in the Eastern Conference stretch of their schedule with the team losing three straight inter-conference games, including a 109-101 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

The Clippers, on the other hand, bounced back from a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers by stepping all over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Tuesday’s game will come against a Trail Blazers team they’ve defeated handily on two separate occasions. So they’ll be looking for the clean sweep in the third head-to-head meeting.

Portland is the second-worst defensive team in basketball this season. Their inability to get stops is always going to play into the favour of a Clippers team with the exceptional duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on the floor.

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Clippers -7.5 point spread at $1.81
