The NBA odds continue after a week that showed surprising outcomes. Moving forward into the upcoming week, teams like the Clippers and the Thunder look to build on their momentum. Meanwhile, teams like the Hawks, Bulls, and Knicks are looking to better their performance after suffering a losing skid. Here’s a peek at the top games this week that will surely draw plenty of NBA betting interest.
Celtics vs Hornets – Monday, November 19
Opening the betting action on Monday are the Hornets hosting the Celtics at the Spectrum Center. Boston ended last week with a loss, while the Hornets are looking to build up once again after a couple of losses. After winning two straight games, including a win against top seed Toronto, the Celtics fell to the Jazz. One thing that shines out with Boston is that they have been lethal on the road this year.
The Hornets have lost three of their last four matches. Nevertheless, they have been solid at home. But one thing to consider before placing bets on the Hornets is that they have dropped six straight meetings with the Celtics in Charlotte.
Thunder vs Warriors – Wednesday, November 21
The Thunder are on a roll and are looking to add another win to their 10 wins in the last 11 matches, while Golden State has dropped their last three games to finish off a tough week–leaving the Warriors with only a single win in four games.
Ultimately, this puts Oklahoma at a good spot. They can make a statement and establish their position in the league as top contenders for the Playoffs.
Wizards vs Raptors – Friday, November 23
Although this match up may look one-sided, the margins look a lot closer once you look into it. As bad as the Wizards are performing, they has won three of their last four meetings with the Raptors. Concurrently, the Raptors just ended their three-game drought with a win in Chicago but they have not been on top of their game. Toronto lost its last two home games, which can prove to be alarming. Toronto is expected to get the win, but recent trends put Washington at a good spot.
Jazz vs Lakers – Friday, November 23
After a shaky start, the Los Angeles Lakers are on a roll with six wins in their last eight games, including five of six at the Staples Center. The Jazz, on the other hand, have won four of their last six games, but are yet to prove their worth on the road.
The Jazz has won the last seven meetings between these two teams, but they did have the upper hand for the most part. But now that the Lakers are beginning to warm up and get their rhythm right, they look to break the familiar losing trend when they play Utah.
