2018-19 NBA Betting Tips: Tuesday 12th February

February 11th 2019, 5:55pm, By: Jake Smit

We’re coming off a solid 2/3 on our Saturday NBA tips that saw us return to winning ways. We had wins on both the Sixers and Kings covering their respective spreads, but had a loss on the Mavericks failing to cover their spread at home. We now shift our focus to the busy nine game slate on Tuesday and look to keep the ball rolling. Good luck to everyone following!

NBA Betting Tips Tuesday 12th February

Charlotte Hornets @ Indiana Pacers (11am AEDT)

First up on Tuesday we’ve got the Eastern Conference match-up between the Charlotte Hornets and the Indiana Pacers. The regular season series is currently tied at 1-1 between these teams, although the Pacers won the last meeting by 25 points at home just three weeks ago.

The Hornets continue to hover around the .500 mark as they’ve done all season long. They’re coming off a nine point win in Atlanta last time out and will continue their four game road trip with a visit to Indianapolis on Tuesday.

The Pacers have found a gear that many believed simply wouldn’t exist without Victor Oladipo in their playing roster. They’ve won each of their last five games and have reclaimed the third spot in the Eastern Conference standings as a result.

The Pacers depth has allowed them to regroup without All-Star Victor Oladipo and remain a team to fear in the East. They’ve won each of their past three games by 14+ points at home and welcome a Hornets squad that has been out on the road for two games already. As a result, we love the Pacers to cover the spread here and keep their impressive streak going.

Brooklyn Nets @ Toronto Raptors (11:30am AEDT)

Second up for the day we’re making a play on the intriguing Brooklyn Nets at Toronto Raptors match-up. These teams are also tied in their regular season series with one win apiece. Both the Raptors and Nets have defended home court thus far.

The wheels seem to have fallen off in Brooklyn now with the Nets winning just one of their past five games. Their incredibly form to start 2019 had to come to an end at some point with their injury struggles just too prevalent to ignore. They’re coming off an embarrassing 19 point home loss to the Bulls and will need to recover sooner rather than late if they’re to make the post-season.

The Raptors avoided a shock loss in their last time out against the Knicks, eventually defeating them by five points at MSG (104-99). It was the fourth win on the spin for the 41-16 Raptors who look every bit like a contender on seasons form.

It may seem like a rather big spread to cover, but the Raptors have won 22 of 27 home games this season, including a 17 point win over the Nets in their earlier meeting. The Nets are also going through a really tough stretch, so until they get out of that we’re happy to oppose them.

Miami Heat @ Denver Nuggets (1pm AEDT)

The final game of the slate will have the Miami Heat travelling to take on the Denver Nuggets. This will be the second and final meeting this season in a series the Nuggets are looking to sweep, after claiming the first game by four points in Miami.

The Heat almost pulled off a huge upset against the Warriors on Monday, but couldn’t quite get over the line as they lost by two points at Oracle Arena (120-118). They now face arguably the toughest test in today’s NBA, which is facing a lethal Nuggets team at altitude on the second night of a back-to-back.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets return home after a poor four game road trip where they finished up 1-3. They’ll be eager to get back on the winners list on Tuesday and should get a boost from the return of some key players in the back-court. The Nuggets are 23-4 at home this season, which is the best record in the NBA.

As mentioned above, the Heat have arguably the toughest task on their hands on Tuesday. They play the defending champs on the road one day, then have to play the league best home team at altitude the day after. We can’t see any way the Heat keep this one close.
