October 22nd 2018, 4:47pm, By: admin

We’ve had a solid start to the season with our NBA tips, holding a positive 5-4 record as we approach the second week of action. We’re confident we can build on that record with some more great tips from the big 9-game slate on Tuesday, October 23rd. Good luck to all following!

NBA Tuesday 23rd October Betting Tips

Washington Wizards at Portland Trail Blazers (1pm AEDT)

We start the day’s proceedings in Rip City where the Washington Wizards travel to take on the Portland Trail Blazers. These two sides have had completely different starts their 2018-19 campaigns, with the Wizards losing their first two games and the Blazers wining theirs. Unfortunately for the Wizards, we see this trend continuing for at least another game.

On paper you can certainly make the case that the Wizards have the more talented roster. The backcourts of Wall & Beal vs Lillard & McCollum probably cancel each other out, but the Wizards wing pairing of Porter & Morris would be taken by just about every GM ahead of Aminu & Harkless. When looking at each team’s second unit It’s again a very close race with both teams possessing quality bench players. This leads us to believe the difference maker between these teams is the coaching. We just get the feeling that Wizards head coach Scott Brooks Is starting to lose is locker room and will need to start looking for another job if his team continues to underperform. The results he’s gotten out of his team over the past 12 months just isn’t good enough and it doesn’t look like changing anytime soon.

All things considered, we love a play on the Blazers small line at home. They’ve taken care of two quality opponents already on their home deck in the Lakers and Spurs, who we both have ahead of the Wizards in terms of quality.


San Antonio Spurs at Los Angeles Lakers (1:30pm AEDT)

Our second play of the day comes from the highly anticipated match-up between the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center. It promises to be an enthralling and emotional contest, especially after the melee that transpired in the Lakers most recent game, which led to the suspensions of Rajon Rondo (3 games) and Brandon Ingram (4 games).

Both the Spurs (1-1) and Lakers (0-2) have had shaky starts to their 2018-19 campaigns, but would love to get the ball rolling with a win on Tuesday. The spurs are seemingly going through a transition period with DeMar DeRozan taking the reigns as the team leader, while the same could definitely be said for LeBron James and the Lakers.

Although Rondo and Ingram are suspended for this game, we still feel that the Lakers have the superior talent and depth on their roster. With a few key outs, we expect to see King James take over here and deliver the Lakers their first win of the season.

 


Phoenix Suns at Golden State Warriors (1:30pm AEDT)

Our final play of an eventful Tuesday is on the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors total points OVER (228.5). This preview will be a bit shorter as there’s not much to say other than we expect these two teams to be disinterested on the defensive side of the ball.

Devin Booker and the Suns (1-1) were emphatic in their season opener, putting up 121 points in their 21 point win over the Mavericks, before putting in a lacklustre performance on the road in their 28-point defeat to the Nuggets. Meanwhile, the Warriors (2-1) are coming off a disappointing 2-point loss to the Nuggets, which was their second nail-biting finish in three days.

We’ve seen some monster team scores early in the season with 130+ scores being posted daily. We have a feeling that tomorrow will be another one of those games as the Suns and Warriors are notorious for having high scoring battles. In 12 of the past 13 times these teams have played, both teams have score 100+ points. In addition to that stat the Suns are horrible at defence and the Warriors are playing their second game of back-to-back. All signs lead to a scoring game.
