NBA Betting Tips: Monday, 14th of March

Indiana Pacers at Atlanta Hawks

State Farm Arena, 10am AEDT

The Pacers managed to get a positive result last start against the Spurs who were without their only All-Star in Dejounte Murray. It was just the Pacers fourth win since January and their ninth since the turn of the new year. As a result, they’re well and truly out of contention for a playoff spot and are only six games better off than the worst team in the competition.

The Hawks were also winners in their most recent game against the Clippers, defeating them by six points in Atlanta. That win snapped a mini two-game losing streak, one of which came against the defending champions in the Bucks. The Hawks have had a much better run with injury in recent weeks and are climbing up the standings as a result. They’re now 10th in the East and only 1.5 games behind the Nets in eighth.

These teams have already played each other twice this season and the Hawks have had the better of this matchup on both occasions, winning once at home and once on the road. They’re the deserving favourites in their third clash of the season, particularly when considering the Pacers will be without their best player in Malcolm Brogdon. With that said, I like their chances of covering the spread in this one.

Atlanta Hawks -11



Houston Rockets at New Orleans Pelicans

Smoothie King Center, 10am AEDT

The Rockets were unable to match it with the talented Mavericks in their most recent outing, going down at home by 13 points. Prior to that they pulled off an unlikely overtime win against the Lakers, which was their second win from their last four games. The Rockets have certainly been more competitive on a consistent basis of late, although they still hold the worst record in the NBA at 17-50.

The Pelicans have well and truly cooled off from the hot form that saw them win for straight games a couple of weeks ago. They’ve now lost four in a row and have been playing absolutely no defence, giving up 132+ points in three of their last four games. As a result, the Pelicans have slipped to 27-40 on the season and are now 10th in the West standings.

This will be the fourth and final meeting between these teams this season, with the Pelicans currently leading the series 2-1. However, they will be without their three best players on Monday with Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum all unavailable for different reasons. This gives the relatively healthy Rockets a genuine chance of tying the series at 2-2 and I expect them to make the most of it.

Houston Rockets +5



Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns

Footprint Center, 12pm AEDT

LeBron James needed to produce one of his superhuman performances to guide the Lakers to an important 13-point win over the Wizards last outing. It was the King’s second 50-point night from his last three games, which has seen him become the current scoring leader for the season. In terms of team success, the Lakers haven’t had much of late and are currently 29-37 on the season, which has them in ninth spot in the West.

The Suns have still been playing some good consistent basketball despite being without their floor general in Chris Paul for a couple of weeks now. They weren’t able to get the chocolates against the Raptors in their most recent outing, but they still come into Monday’s slate having won four of their last six games. The Suns remain 7.5 games clear of the Grizzlies for the best record in the West.

The Suns have dominated this matchup in recent times, winning each of their last five games against the Lakers, including their last four by 10+ points. They will be without Paul on this occasion, although they’re still the far deeper and more talented team and should be far too strong over four quarters. I have them winning by double figures once again.

Phoenix Suns -8.5
