NBA Betting Tips: Tuesday, 16th of March

Sacramento Kings at Charlotte Hornets

Spectrum Center, 10am AEDT

Sacramento Kings are coming off a 15 point loss to the Hawks to make it two wins from their past five games, one of which was three point win against last season’s champs in the Lakers. The Kings just can’t seem to get any serious momentum on their side and haven’t won back-to-back games in six weeks.

Charlotte Hornets continue to build as the season progresses and come into Tuesday on a three-game winning streak. Each of the wins in their current streak have been against sub-par teams, but at least they’re taking care of business. Now at 19-18 on the season, the Hornets are a legitimate hope to make the playoffs.

There isn’t much to like about the Kings again this season and it’ll be another campaign This without making the playoffs. On the other hand, the Hornets are looking to goods and have already knocked off the Kings once this season; expect them to do it again on Tuesday.

This should be a shoutout with the total points line set at 238.5, leading to a lot of players covering their point spreads. One that we like the most is Kings forward, Harrison Barnes. He’s been getting all the minutes he can handle at the moment and has scored 18+ in six of his past eight games.

Prop: Barnes O17.5 Points ($1.92)

Charlotte Hornets -3.5 


New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets

Barclays Center, 11am AEDT

New York Knicks were thumped by the Bucks in their first game post All-Star break, but were able to bounce back in a big way against the Thunder. Julius Randle posted yet another huge stat line (26/12/12) to lead his team to their 20th win of the season in 39 games.

Brooklyn Nets made yet another big change to their roster with the addition of Blake Griffin, but it’s still unclear what role he’ll be given. The Nets have won both of their games since the All-Star break to make it 12 wins from their past 13 games to consolidate second spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

While the Nets are clearly the more talented of the two teams, you certainly can’t discount the Knicks as a legitimate chance to knock them off here. Making additions to locker rooms and shake-ups to roles always comes with some teething issues, which will open the door for the Knicks here. We expect them to keep it close and cover the spread at the minimum in this one.

The Knicks generally play in low scoring games, but they come up against one of the highest scoring teams in the Nets, which will lead to some extra possessions on offence. Expect Julius Randle to be aggressive attacking the rim and to be a threat for a 30 piece.

Prop: Randle O24.5 Points ($1.91)

New York Knicks +8.5 


Los Angeles Lakers at Golden State Warriors

Chase Center, 1:30pm AEDT

Los Angeles Lakers have had their fair share of injury struggles this season and it’s begun to take its toll on their performance for a couple of weeks now. The champs are coming off a narrow win over the Pacers in their first game post All-Star break, but that was just their third win from their past nine games.

Golden State Warriors have been hovering around .500 all season but struggled over a recent stretch where they played 8/9 games on the road (W3, L6). They bounced back in their most recent game in emphatic fashion however, dispatching the league-leading Jazz by double-figures at home.

These Western Conference rivals have met twice already this season with the series tied at 1-1. Both meetings were in LA, so the Warriors will be keen on their chances at home this time around, particularly with all the injury problems the champs are dealing with. Taking everything into consideration, we’re more than happy to be on the Warriors as the slight underdogs to finish off the day.

Golden State Warriors +2.5
