new york @ cleveland

january 25th 11:00am

The surprise packet of the East in the form of Cleveland hosts a travelling Knicks team when the pair face off at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on Tuesday morning.

The Cavaliers continued their charge towards the playoffs with a 94-87 win over a juvenile Thunder squad thanks to another display of strong scoring by Darius Garland. 

New York, meanwhile, edged closer to the 0.500 mark with an important victory over the Clippers. 

The Knicks have been one of the most topsy turvy teams in the league this year and with their consistency being an issue, the market has sent them out as the -6.5 underdogs. 

With an 8-4 winning record against the spread as home favourites, it is hard to side against the Cavaliers. 

Suggested Bet: Cleveland -6.5 at $1.91

indiana @ new orleans

january 25th 12:00pm

The ‘what if’ season continues for the New Orleans Pelicans when they host the Indiana Pacers at Smoothie King Arena.

It has been a case missed opportunities for the Pelicans who continue to ply away without the influence of Zion Williamson on his road back from a fractured foot. 

The Pelicans scored a 102-91 win over the Knick to improve to 17-28 and now they have a golden chance to defeat a which comes to the end of a gruelling five-game road trip. 

Indiana has found a second wind during its travels having defeated the Warriors, Lakers and Clippers but falling short against the Suns. 

A match up against the Pelicans would, on paper, prove the easiest of the lot but it all depends on how sluggish they pull up from the Suns loss. 

The Pelicans boast a 4-1 record against the spread at Smoothie King Arena and it is trend we want to be with given how strong they looked against the Knicks.

Suggested Bet: New Orleans Pelicans -2.5 at $1.91

chicago @ oklahoma

january 25th 12:00pm

In what has been a tough five-game stretch for the youthful Oklahoma Thunder, they will try to turn their fortunes around against Chicago come Tuesday afternoon. 

It looks as though the weary legs of the inexperienced Thunder are coming to the fore having lost their last five games in a row, while the Bulls suffered a shock defeat against the free-falling Orlando Magic. 

This match looks a pretty simple equation for the Bulls; if DeMar DeRozan rocks up, their defence needs to as well. 

DeRozan was at his prolific best in the 114-95 loss against the Magic, but it was the defence that faltered, which gives the Thunder some hope in this contest. 

The whereabouts of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and playmaking maestro Josh Giddey must be known to the Bulls defence despite the Thunder’s poor recent run of form. 

Thunder can cover the spread given their 13-6 ATS record when starting as underdogs on their home court.

Suggested Bet: Oklahoma City Thunder +1.5 at $1.96

utah @ phoenix

january 25th 1:00pm

A big battle between Western Conference division leaders on the hardwood. The Valley of the Sun hosts the Utah Jazz on their road making the trip. 

After falling agonisingly short against Golden State on Monday, the Jazz play with no rest against a Phoenix team which has won six games in a row including nine of its last 10. 

The Suns improved to 36-9 with their most recent 113-103 win over Indiana and entered this week with a 3.5-game lead over the Warriors in the Pacific Division. 

What has been most impressive about Phoenix this season is its ability to balance offence with defence. 

The Suns rank third for points scored, sixth in rebounds and fifth in scoring defence allowing their opposition only 104.5 points per game. 

Utah is going to have a hard time of it on the road, especially without the chance to rest their legs after a physical battle against the Warriors. 

Suggested Bet: Phoenix Suns -8.5 at $1.90
