2019-20 NBA Betting Tips: Tuesday 14th January

January 13th 2020, 6:27pm, By: Jake Smit

The NBA season continues with a seven game on Tuesday, the 14th of January, headlined by the Sixers at Pacers clash from 11am AEDT! We have a full preview and betting tips for some of the key matchups of the day below. 

NBA Betting Tips Tuesday January 14th

Philadelphia 76ers @ Indiana Pacers

11:10am AEDT

The Sixers come into this off a loss against the Mavericks on the road (91-109). That loss was their fifth in a row in road games, taking their season road record to a dismal 7-13. It’s bizarre just how bad they are away from their home court where they are 18-2 on the season and they’ll need to sort it out sooner rather than later as we approach the halfway point of the season.

The Pacers were winners in their most recent game against the Bulls in Chicago (116-105). It was a great response to their disappointing loss to the Heat in the game prior when TJ Warren was ejected for his scuffle with Jimmy Butler. The Pacers now head back to their home court where they’re 15-5 on the season and look to jump into fourth spot in the East with Victor Oladipo’s return just around the corner.

The Sixers are just so bad on the road and the absence of start center Joel Embiid through injury certainly doesn’t help their cause. Further, the Pacers beat the Sixers very easily (115-97) at home just two weeks ago. All things considered, the Pacers look a great price to win and cause a mini upset.

New Orleans Pelicans @ Detroit Pistons

11:10am AEDT

The Pelicans were surprisingly bad losers last time out against the Celtics (105-140) in a game where their defence simply wasn’t up to scratch. Despite the loss, the Pels are enjoying easily their best stretch of the season with seven wins from their last 10 games, which has reignited their playoffs hopes and aspirations.

The Pistons have had a really tough season and their playoffs hopes are quickly starting to slip away. No one expected them to be world beaters, but their 14-26 record is really quite poor considering the talent on their roster. Injuries have certainly played their way and continue to do so, making it tough to see a way out of their current slump.

Even though they were big losers in their most recent game, the Pelicans are clear the form team of these two clubs. They’ve got plenty of scoring options on offence and now have point guard Lonzo Ball playing the best basketball of his young career, which adds another string to their bow. We have the Pelicans putting up a score that the Pistons won’t be able to get near on Tuesday.

OKC Thunder @ Minnesota Timberwolves

12:10pm AEDT

The Thunder were blown away by the undermanned Lakers last time out in what was a bit of a surprise considering their current form. They’ve won 11 of their last 14 games and look to only be getting stronger as the season progresses. Trade deadline day is approaching however, and there are quite a few Thunder veterans that have the interest of some of the contending clubs.

The Timberwolves were no match for the Rockets in their most recent game, going down by a huge 30 points (109-139). The absence of KAT continues to hurt them on both ends of the floor, although he’s been upgraded to ‘questionable’ for their Tuesday night game. As a whole, the Timberwolves have had a very disappointing season and come into this with 15-23 record, which is the 12th best in the West.

The Thunder are the obvious form team of these two clubs and although KAT may return for the T-Wolves, we’re going to be sticking with the form. Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander have become a formidable backcourt pairing and if they play anywhere near the level they’ve been at lately, we have them handing the T-Wolves yet another loss.
