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

Big names and big teams take to the court across the USA for a jam-packed Thursday of NBA. 

The BetDeluxe best NBA bets and selections have surfaced and it’s time to bounce back after a lean day yesterday pulled back the big weekend and start to the week we’ve had. 

Time to bounce back!

Brooklyn @ Milwaukee

May 3rd 5:30am

The Brooklyn Nets are in Milwaukee to battle the Bucks in an Eastern Conference showdown on Monday.

The Nets continue to lead the Eastern Conference and are looking to return to the win column after a rough home loss against the Trail Blazers on Friday night.

The Bucks toppled the Bulls in their previous clash. Brooklyn tallied a 125-123 home win over the Bucks in the only meeting this season.

It’s a big game that is amplified even more given the Bucks trail the Nets by 3.5 games for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Predict that the Bucks will be up for this game after a bit of an uninspiring string of games.

The Nets continue to play without James Harden who played a big factor in the Nets’ narrow 125-123 win over Milwaukee in the lone meeting this season.

Suggested Bet: Milwaukee Bucks -2.5 point spread at $1.92

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Milwaukee Bucks -2.5
Leg 2: G. Antetokounmpo over 26.5 points
Leg 3: Total points under 243.5

Portland @ Boston

April 29th 9:30am

After a career-high 60-point performance, Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics open up the doors to the TD Garden for a head-to-head showdown with the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

Tatum’s spectacle against the San Antonio Spurs was stuff of legend.

He turned up the heat on a Spurs team that fell 143-140 in overtime.

Meanwhile, the Trail Blazers have won their last three consecutive games against the Brooklyn Nets, Memphis Grizzlies and Indiana Pacers.

As long as the team has Damian Lillard, they’ll be in the mix for a playoff spot but to considered a serious threat to the top teams would be a stretch too far this point.

The Trailblazers defense has been abysmal and the Celtics should be able to capitalize especially riding the wave of the Taytum’s form. 

Suggested Bet: Boston Celtics head to head at $2.01

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Boston Celtics head to head 
Leg 2: J. Tatum 3+ three pointers
Leg 3: J. Tatum over 28.5 points
Combined odds = $2.80

New York @ Houston

May 3rd

An uphill battle against one of the league’s best defensive teams lies on the horizon for the Houston Rockets in Sunday’s clash with the New York Knicks.

After falling short to the Phoenix Suns, the Knicks bounced back in a big way with a lopsided win over the Chicago Bulls.

Meanwhile, the Rockets followed up their shocking upset victory over the Milwaukee Bucks by getting trounced by the Golden State Warriors.

This will be their first road trip to the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse this season, but it won’t make much of a difference considering how poorly the Rockets have played regardless of venue.

New York put them in defensive jail in the first outing and kept them under 100 total points.

They should have no problem repeating that effort with the league’s top-ranked run-scoring defense.

Suggested Bet: New York Knicks -10.5 point spread at $1.92

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: New York Knicks -10.5
Leg 2: J. Randle over 24.5 points
Leg 3: Total points scored under 217.5
Combined odds = $5.25

Toronto @ los angeles lakers

may 3rd

The slumping Los Angeles Lakers will take on the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Los Angeles has lost five of their last six games, including a 110-106 loss to Sacramento on Friday. Toronto had lost two games in a row, and could lose three before taking on Los Angeles, as they face the Utah Jazz on Sunday. 

Los Angeles won the most recent contest between these teams, defeating Toronto back on April 6, 110-101. However, the Raptors had won the previous nine meetings against the Lakers.

Toronto managed to keep it close against Denver, trailing by just two entering the fourth quarter, but the Nuggets pulled away in the 121-111 victory.

Og Anunoby scored 25 points and both Khem Birch and Kyle Lowry added 20. Toronto shot 48.2% from the field, including 50% from three-point range.

Suggested Bet: Toronto Raptors +7.5 point spread at $1.92
