NBA Betting Picks Tuesday 10th December

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics

11:40am AEDT

The Cavaliers are struggling just like we all expected them to this season. They started off OK with four wins from their first nine games but have since gone on to win just one of their last 10 and are now in second last spot in the weak Eastern Conference. Last time out the Cavs were blown out of the water by 47 points against the Sixers and will continue their road trip on Tuesday when they visit Boston.

The Celtics have had a great start to the season despite losing Kyrie Irving in free agency. Kemba Walker has fit into Brad Stevens system seamlessly and is arguably having a greater impact on the team than Irving had in his stint in Boston. The Celtics come into this clash at 16-5 on the season and are an undefeated 9-0 at home.

The Celtics are going to win this game, it’s just a matter of by how much. The Cavs are 2-8 on the road this season and were thumped by 47 only a couple of days ago by the Sixers. Now up against arguably a better team in the Celtics, we see this as another potential blowout in the making.

Toronto Raptors @ Chicago Bulls

12:10pm AEDT

The Raptors may have lost one of the best players in the league in the off-season, but they’ve already proven that they’re still a sniff to get back to the finals without Leonard this campaign. The Raptors have taken a number of scalps early in the season and while they’re coming off a disappointing loss to the Sixers last time out, they’re still sitting pretty at 15-7 a quarter of the way through the season.

The Bulls have had a tough start to what looks like will be another unsuccessful season. They’re currently at 8-16 and are clearly lacking a consistent second option on offence with Lauri Markannen failing to deliver thus far. The Bulls were brave in defeat against the Heat on the road on Monday, losing by five points in overtime.

The Raptors would be disappointed with how they played against the Sixers and will be looking to bounce back against a poor Bulls side. Pascal Siakam was particularly quiet and should have no problem getting whatever he wants on offence against a poor interior defending team in Chicago. We have him leading the Raptors to a relatively easy win.

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Phoenix Suns

1:10pm AEDT

The Timberwolves were competitive against the league-leading Lakers on Monday but were eventually put to bed on the back of Anthony Davis’ 50. Karl Anthony Towns was quiet again for the Wolves, failing to notch a triple double for the third straight game, which is bizarre considering how dominant he was on the glass in the early part of the season. The Timberwolves have been fairly consistent on the season as a whole and are currently ninth in the West at 10-12.

The Suns got their season off to an unexpected flying start and were 7-4 after 11 games. However, they’ve since gone on to win just three of their last eight and are now treading water at 10-12. They were brave in defeat in Houston last time out when Booker dropped 36 and will be keen to put in another good performance when they return home on Tuesday.

The Suns were able to split their four-game road trip at 2-2 and now come home for four games where they’re 5-7 on the season. They’ve already met the Timberwolves once this season where they were victorious in Minnesota and we see no reason why they can’t replicate that performance now that they’re back on their home deck and with a near full-strength roster to pick from. We see them as the better pick in this Western Conference matchup.
