January 29th 2019, 7:35am, By: admin

There’s five games of NBA on the Tuesday card with a few really good match-ups among them. As we always do, we’ve scoured the markets across multiple agencies to bring you the best value plays of the day. Today, we’ve got three solid tips that we’re happy to recommenced at great odds. Good luck to everyone following!

NBA Betting Tip Tuesday January 29th

Golden State Warriors @ Indiana Pacers (11am AEDT)

The first game we’re making a play on from the Tuesday slate is the Warriors at Pacers March-up. This is the first meeting between these teams this season. Interestingly, the Pacers won both times they met in 2017-18. 

The Warriors enter this game on a league high 10 game winning streak. They’re absolutely flying at the moment and have welcomed DeMarcus Cousins into the rotation with no initial drop off. As it stands, the defending champions have second best record in the league and the best record in the West. 

The Pacers suffered a huge blow when reigning MIP Victor Oladipo went down with a serious injury last week. It’s going to be hard for a team without many star caliber players to cover the loss, but they do have depth on their side. The Pacers are currently in third spot in the East at 32-16 on the season. 

The Warriors come into this as strong favourites and rightly so. They’re in outstanding touch at the moment, especially on the road where they’ve won their last nine. We expect them to make light work of the short handed Pacers here.

Brooklyn Nets @ Boston Celtics (11:30am AEDT)

Second up on Tuesday we’ve got the inter conference match-up between the Nets and the Celtics at the TD Garden in Boston. These teams have faced off twice so far this season, with the series currently tied at 1-1. The most recent meeting ended in a seven point home win for the Nets.

Along the with Warriors, the Nets are the form side of the entire competition. They’ve won an incredible 19 games from their last 24, which is the best stretch in the league during that time. They’ve surged into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings at 27-23 look destined to break their playoffs hoodoo. The only thing that might make them come unstuck is their horrible run with injuries, which just continues to get worse.

The Celtics were unable to extend their winning streak to six when they hosted the Warriors last time out. They led for portions of the game, but were unable to make enough clutch plays down the stretch. Despite the loss, they’re still in solid form and sit one spot ahead of the Nets in fifth place in the East. They’ve had a lot better run with injuries than their opponents this season, although star guard Kyrie Irving is expected to miss this clash. 

The Celtics will start this game as huge 10 point favourites here, which we feel is a bit of a slap in the face of the Nets. You can’t argue with their winning form, even if they’re short handed. We feel that they have the ability to keep this one close, therefore recommending a play on them +10.

Atlanta Hawks @ Los Angeles Clippers (2:30pm AEDT)

Our final play on Tuesday comes from the Atlanta Hawks at Los Angeles Clippers fixture. This will be the second and final meeting between these teams this season. The Clippers won the first match-up in Atlanta by eight points, which was their fifth straight win against them. 

The Hawks have probably outplayed most people’s expectations so far this season, but they still find themselves down in 12th position in the Eastern Conference standings at 15-33. Their most recent game was in Portland where they were surprisingly competitive, but eventually fell short by nine points. A real shining light for Lloyd Pierce’s men this season has been the tremendous play of sophomore John Collins, who’s averaging over 19 points and 10 rebounds per game. 

The Clippers will be looking for their fourth straight win when they host the Hawks on Tuesday. Their most recent win came against the Kings at home, who they made light work of on their way to a 14 point victory. They Clippers continue to remain in the playoff picture in the West, and are currently in eighth spot at 28-22. If they’re to extend their current streak to four wins, they’ll have to do it without Danilo Gallinari, who will kiss through injury. 

The Hawks may have had a couple of wins of late, but they come up against a strong and mature Clippers outfit in this one. Even without Gallinari we expect the home side to be too strong for 48 minutes, ultimately outlasting the young Hawks and extending their head-to-head winning streak to five.
