2018-19 NBA Betting Tips: Thursday 24th January

January 23rd 2019, 9:43pm, By: admin

We went 2/3 on our NBA betting tips yet again on Tuesday to have another profitable day for our followers. We’ve now shifted our focus to the monster 10-game slate of action on Thursday, which we’ll be looking to go one better on. Again, we’ve analyse all the markets for the day and have come up with our three best value tips. Good luck to everyone following!

NBA Betting Tips Thursday January 24th

Toronto Raptors @ Indiana Pacers (11am AEDT)

The first game of the day we’ve found value in is the Eastern Conference match-up between the Toronto Raptors and the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis. These teams have played twice so far this season, both in Toronto, with the Raptors winning each of them.

The Raptors are having a really strong regular season and are currently in second place in the Eastern Conference standings. They’ve had a great couple of weeks, winning each of their last three and eight of their last 10 games. Unfortunately though, Kawhi Leonard is set to miss a couple more games through injury.

The Pacers have also had a strong season and are right behind the Raptors in third position in the East. They’ve won each of their last two games and are 7-3 in their last 10. They’ve got one of the deepest rosters in the league and have been getting strong contributions from their bench in most games this season.

Without Leonard in the mix we give a fairly strong advantage to the Pacers here. They’re terrific at protection home court (17-6 on the season) and are playing their best basketball of the season. We see $1.70+ as strong value to start proceedings.  

Orlando Magic @ Brooklyn Nets (11:30am AEDT)

Second up in the Thursday slate we’re looking at another Eastern Conference match-up – this time it’s the Orlando Magic travelling to take on the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets have won four of the past five meetings against the Magic, most recently beating them by two points on the road just six days prior to this game.

Orlando Magic enter this game fresh off of a 19 point win away at Atlanta. It was a much needed win for Steve Clifford’s Magic, who had lost seven of their last nine prior to that game. That win keeps them in touch with the top eight in the East, but they’re still far from being a challenger.

Meanwhile, the Nets are enjoying some of their greatest form of the season so far. They’ve won four on the spin and eight of their last 10, which has them up in sixth spot in the East. Even greater news for the Nets is the recent form of D’Angelo Russell, who has just been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

We’re quite surprised at the spread the bookies have dished up for us here. The -5 on offer seems at least 3-4 points too small, so we’re more than happy make a play on the Nets here. They’ve been in far better form than their opponents and should continue their winning form.

San Antonio Spurs @ Philadelphia 76ers (12pm AEDT)

The third and final game we’ve taken a keen interest in is the inter-conference game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Centre. The Spurs won the first meeting against the Sixers comfortably, but must now face them on the road, which is a completely different beast.

The Spurs come into this one after a home loss to the Clippers last time out. It was a disappointing result for a team that has protected home court extremely well for such a long time. The now hit the road for a rather tough stretch of games, which they’ll need to play well in to stay afloat in the stacked Western Conference. As it stands, the Spurs are in sixth place with a record of 27-11 (9-14 on the road).

On the other hand, the Sixers are in really strong form and are coming off a huge home win against the Rockets last time out. They’ve now won four of their last five games, and get a chance to improve on that even further with another home game on Thursday. The Sixers are currently in fourth spot in Eastern Conference standings with an overall record of 31-17.

We’re taking the home team for the third time again here. Philly are 20-5 on their home deck this season and should match up well against the Spurs. There’s slight concern over the fitness of Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, but as long as Joel Embiid plays we really fancy the home side in this one.
