NBA Betting Tips: Saturday, 24th of April
Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets
Barclays Center, 9:30am AEST
Boston are coming off a good win against the re-hot Suns despite Jaylen Brown missing. The Celtics are on a huge run at the moment with wins in nine of their past 11 games, which has put them back in the box seat for a playoff position that didn’t look likely a couple of weeks ago.
Brooklyn Nets are coming off a loss against the Raptors that they let slip, but they still put up a decent enough fight with a limited roster. Despite the loss, the Nets are one of the best performing teams over the past two months and are vying for the first seed in the West.
The Celtics were good against the Suns, but they also caught them on a rare off shooting night that potentially handed them the win. Now on the second night of a back-to-back against one of the best teams in the league, we don’t see them getting so lucky.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Charlotte Hornets
Spectrum Center, 10am AES.
Cleveland Cavaliers recorded a rare win over the Bulls last time out that was just their second from their past seven games. Overall, it’s been another really tough season for Cavs fans who look set to being another big player in the NBA lottery.
Charlotte Hornets were disappointing in their first game of a back-to-back against the Bulls, losing by 17 points to make it six losses from their past seven games. This recent stretch has certainly hurt their playoff chances, but they still have plenty of time to make up for it.
The Hornets are in a funk at the moment, there’s no doubt about that; however, they’re on their home floor against one of the worst teams in the league in a must-win game, which should surely will them over the line here.
If one of the Cavaliers players is going to be dishing out dimes here, then it will definitely be Darius Garland. He’s averaging a juicy 7.2 assists in April, dishing out 8+ on four occasions and is good money to do that again on Saturday,
Prop: Garland 8+ Assists ($3)

Denver Nuggets at Golden State Warriors
Chase Center, 12pm AEST
Denver Nuggets have done extremely well to deal with the loss of Jamal Murray so far, going 4-0 since he had his devastating ACL injury. In saying that, they haven’t face the best off competition during that stretch, so it’ll be interesting to see how they hold up for the remainder of the season.
Golden State Warriors were running the hot hand of Steph Curry for a number of games, but when that hot hand fizzled out last game against the Wizards the supporting cast couldn’t pick up the scraps. Nonetheless, the Warriors have won five of their past seven games and are making a push to be a part of the play-in tournament.
On paper the Nuggets look like the form here, but they haven’t faced a team as hungry as the Warriors during this current stretch. At home and coming off a rare bad shooting performance from Curry, we have the Warriors winning this one at odds.
Although Curry has been getting all the coverage of late, Draymond Green has been quietly going about his business and racking up big numbers in most statistical areas. The bookies are yet to adjust, so we’ll be looking to take advantage here.
Prop: Green O23.5 PRA ($1.85)
