NBA Betting Tips

  • Nuggets @ 76ers - 76ers (-3.5) @ 5/6
  • Kings @ Suns - Suns (-5.5) @ EVS
  • Thunder @ Clippers (-5.5) @ 10/11

Treble pays 6/1

Nuggets @ 76ers - 76ers (-3.5) @ 5/6

Joel Embiid enjoyed an emphatic return to the 76ers lineup on Monday night, posting 41 points and 10 rebounds in a 124-115 victory.

Embiid had missed Philly's last three outings due to a knee injury, and the star center is expected to play once again tonight, despite this game being the second of a back-to-back. The 29-year-old will lock horns against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets in a matchup of the past three winners of the NBA MVP award.

Denver took care of business against the Tyrese Hailburton-less Pacers on Sunday, but I think they'll struggle to break down the Sixers rearguard that currently ranks first in three-point defense, and first in steals.

Kings @ Suns - Suns (-5.5) @ EVS

Whisper it quietly, but the Phoenix Suns are slowly starting to look like the team we all expected them to when they acquired Bradley Beal in the offseason.

Beal will look to put together another strong offensive showing when the Suns host the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, and the former Wizard is averaging 30 points over his past two games.

This is the first time this season that Phoenix have had their 'big three' of Beal, Devin Booker and Kevin Durant all healthy at the same time, and the Suns will hope to get on a roll now after winning their last two games.

The Sacramento Kings were seconds away from a huge road win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, but Damian Lillard had other ideas, sinking a clutch three-point shot as the clock expired to win the game for Milwaukee.

The Kings have lost their last two, and it feels like the Suns are starting to build some momentum, so I'm taking the latter to cover here.

Thunder @ Clippers - Clippers (-5.5) @ 10/11

The Oklahoma City Thunder will play at the Crypto.com Arena for a second consecutive night, this time against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday evening.

OKC lost 112-105 against the Lakers last night, and will be looking to respond against a Clippers team that are also looking to avoid a second consecutive loss.

Back in December, the Thunder defeated the Clippers 134-115, but I'm expecting LA to get revenge on their home floor, especially since Oklahoma City are playing the second game of a back-to-back.,
