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

The NBA bets bets have lobbed as we prepare for more basketball this weekend. 

Brooklyn faces Boston, Los Angeles Clippers are in action and Golden State meets Denver for jam-packed day of hoops from the USA.

Miami @ Atlanta

April 24th 9:00am

Atlanta hosts the Miami Heat after Clint Capela’s 25-point, 22-rebound showing in the Hawks’ 137-127 overtime loss to the Knicks.

The Hawks are likely to be without star scorer Trae Young who suffered a left ankle sprain in the loss against the Knicks. 

Atlanta come into this game with 5-3 record against division opponents thus far thus season and showcases an impressive 22-9 record against teams below .500. 

Miami, meanwhile, are at even ledger of 5-5 against the rest of its division and averages 42.1 rebounds per game. 

It’s an important stat for this Heat having gone 17-6 on the win-loss ratio when out-rebounding opponents. 

This is the third time the teams meet this season.

The Hawks prevailed 94-80 in the last meeting on March 2 with Trae Young leading the way for Atlanta with 18 points. 

Think are capable of covering the absence of Young despite his pivotal role in the team. 

Suggested Bet: Atalanta Hawks +4.5 point spread at $1.90

Boston @ Brooklyn

April 24th 9:30am

Atlantic divisional rivals Brooklyn and Boston do battle at the Barclays Centre on Saturday with the Celtics looking to continue their brilliant run of form. 

The Celtics produced a stunning 99-86 win over the Phoenix Suns to improve their record to 32-27 and now face a Nets team who fell 114-103 to the Toronto Raptors. 

A return home after a tough three-game road trip should prove a much welcomed relief for a Nets team who are without Kevin Durant and James Harden again. 

Kyrie Irving has been left to lump the load as he battles on to a 27.4 point per game average this season. 

The Nets have already accounted for the Celtics on two occasions thus far but had Durant playing in the 123-95 rout the first time around, while Harden played in the 121-109 win in the most recent fixture. 

Celtics can definitely cause headaches for this weakened Nets squad. 

Suggested Bet: Boston Celtics +5.5 at $1.91

Los Angeles Clippers @ Houston

April 24th 10:00am

The Los Angeles Clippers are on the hunt for a fourth straight victory when it clashes with the Houston Rockets on Saturday morning.

The Clippers made fairly light work of the  Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday with a comfortably 117-105 win ensuring they held onto third spot in the Western Conference. 

Houston, meanwhile, was simply no match for a superior Utah Jazz and would succumb to a heavy 112-89 defeat. 

Both the Clippers and Rockets meet for the second time this season.

The Clippers won 126-109 in the last matchup on April 9 as Kawhi Leonard produce a 31-point masterpiece, while and Christian Wood battled away valiantly for Houston with 23 points.

Suggested Bet: Houston Rockets +11.5 point spread at $1.91

denver @ golden state

April 24th 12:00pm

Two NBA superstars meet when Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors do battle against Nikola Jokic and his Denver Nuggets.

Curry leads the NBA scoring chart after incredible month of April.

The heart of the Warriors franchise is averaging 31.1 points per game and his counterpart Jokic, who will no doubt put up a stern fight, is ninth in the league averaging 26.4 points per game.  

The Warriors are 15-14 in Western Conference games this season and rank second in the West with 27.2 assists per game led by veteran Draymond Green averaging 8.5 per game. 

The Nuggets have a solid 21-12 winning ledger against Western Conference opponents.

Denver ranks third in the NBA with 27.1 assists per game led by Jokic averaging 8.7. 

The teams meet for the third time this season. The Warriors won 116-107 in the last matchup on April 12.

It was a 53-point Steph Curry show wich proved the different in that game but the Nuggets will now be much more wary of his white hot form. 

Expecting Denver to return the favour dealt to them earlier this month. 

Suggested Bet: Denver Nuggets -2.5 point spread at $1.91
