2018-19 NBA Betting Tips: Thursday 28th February

February 27th 2019, 2:43pm, By: andyrosos

Unfortunately, we hit on just one of three bets in the NBA on Tuesday. We’ll look to bounce back and find some more winners this Thursday, the 28th of February as we take a look at some of the key matchups in the 11 game slate

NBA Betting Tips Thursday 28th February

Houston Rockets at Charlotte Hornets (11am AEDT)

The Rockets were disappointing in their first game back after the All-Star break, losing to the Lakers, however, they bounced back with a fantastic win over the Warriors sans James Harden and backed that up with another win over the Hawks at home. Harden was back in the line-up for the game against the Hawks, scoring 28 points on 7/21 shooting. The Rockets will be back on the road on Thursday as they face the 28-32 Hornets in Charlotte. 

On the contrary to the Rockets, the Hornets captured a good win over the Wizards in their first game after the break, but have since gone on to lose their next two against the Nets and the Warriors respectively, both at home. The Hornets currently sit 8th in the Eastern Conference, holding onto their spot in the playoffs race by just 0.5 games over the Magic, however, they have an incredibly tough road ahead with games against the Rockets, Blazers, Bucks and the Rockets again in their next seven.

The Rockets are back to full strength now with Harden, Chris Paul and Clint Capela all back in the line-up. The Hornets have been decent at home so far this season but have looked rusty since the All-Star break. We think the Rockets cover a low line here. 

Golden State Warriors at Miami Heat (11.30am AEDT)

The Warriors will continue their Eastern Conference road trip on Thursday as they face off against the Miami Heat from 11.30am. They are 2-1 since the All-Star break and got their road-trip off to a good start on Tuesday with a 11-point win over the Hornets. Star recruit DeMarcus Cousins was fantastic in the win, racking up 24 points and 11 rebounds while Klay Thompson had 26 points. The Warriors maintain the best record in the Western Conference by two wins over the Denver Nuggets and have won seven of their last ten games. 

The Miami Heat currently find themselves in 10th position in the Eastern Conference, having won just two of their last 10 games and their last three in a row since the All-Star break. That three-game slide included a disappointing loss to the Phoenix Suns at home on Tuesday. 

The Warriors start as massive nine-point favourites here, which is a lot away from home. However, they were much too good for the Hornets on the road on Tuesday and the Heat have looked out of touch since the All-Star break. 

Milwaukee Bucks at Sacramento Kings (2pm AEDT)

The Bucks currently have the best record in the NBA and have won their last five games in a row including great wins over the Celtics, Wolves and Bulls since the All-Star break. They will start as five-point favourites over the Kings on the road and will look to extend their winning streak to six games on Thursday from 2.30pm. 

The Kings have had a tough run since the All-Star break, facing the Warriors, Thunder and Wolves in their last three. However, they were fantastic in their games against the Warriors and the Thunder, taking it up to two of the best teams in the league. They currently sit ninth in the Western Conference, just one game behind the San Antonio Spurs but have a relatively easy road to come in the next few weeks with games against the Clippers, Knicks x2, Wizards and Bulls. 

The Kings have been super competitive against the best teams in the league this year, especially at home. We think they cover the line here against the Bucks.
