NBA Betting Tips Tuesday March 3rd

Utah Jazz @ Cleveland Cavaliers

11:10am AEDT

The Jazz finally got back onto the winners list last time out, snapping a then four game losing streak. Worryingly, all four of those losses were on their home deck, so they would’ve been extremely relieved to take care of the Wizards most recently. The Jazz’s recent slump has seen them drop to fifth in the West standings with an overall record of 37-22.

The Cavaliers have enjoyed some success in recent weeks, which has coincided with the Andre Drummond trade and the change in coach. The young Cavs are playing with a lot more intensity on both ends of the floor, which has resulted in wins in wins in four of their last seven games.

The Jazz are clearly the better team in this matchup, but horrible form coming in does give the Cavs a chance to cause an upset. They’ve found ways to beat top teams in recent weeks and if they come out with similar intensity from the onset, then they could cause the Jazz all sorts of problems here.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Miami Heat

11:40am AEDT

The Bucks continue to dominate the regular season and are on track to record the best record in franchise history. They’re also coming off a game against the Hornets where Giannis recorded his first 40-20 game (points/rebounds) in just 35 minutes of action. The Bucks have now won six on the spin and have a league-best record of 52-8.

The Heat are going through a really tough patch at the moment even if they have won their last two games. They’re 4-6 from their last 10 and haven’t beaten really beaten anyone of significance in that stretch. The good news is they stay at home for this game against the Bucks where they are 25-4 on the season, compared to 13-18 on the road.

If they were in good form, then the Heat would have every chance of winning this game on their home deck. However, that is not the case, so we’ll be backing in the best team in the league to tick over the win column once again. The Bucks are the clear better team here and should be a lot shorter than just a two-point favourite.

Dallas Mavericks @ Chicago Bulls

12:10pm AEDT

The Mavericks have been dealing with an injury to either Porzingis or Doncic for what feels like the whole season, which certainly hasn’t helped them build much consistency game to game. Despite this, they’ve still been impressively competitive for the most part and are a lock to feature in the playoffs.

The Bulls have had another really frustrating season and that has continued post All-Star break with some more poor form. They were double-digit losers against a fellow struggling Eastern Conference team in the Knicks last time out, which was their 10th loss from their past 11 games. The Bulls are 20-40 on the season and also have one of the longest injury lists in the association.

The Mavericks have dealt with their fair share of injuries in recent times, but they’ve still managed to tick over the win column on a consistent basis. They’ve fared really well against the weaker teams in the league this season and we expect more of the same when they take on the Bulls.
