IT’S been a headline-grabbing week in the NBA.
Russell Westbrook got ejected, Golden State suffered a loss to Denver and a controversial top 10 list was published.
All that aside, we’re here to make some extra cash this Saturday with our NBA multi bet of the week.
Featuring in the multi-bet this week are two teams that have playoff hopes and another two teams which have lost their star players, but are proving their worth this season.
Thanks to Sportsbet’s new Cash Out option, multi-bet punters can decided when they want to take their winnings, or simply let it ride and make the big money.
NBA multi bet of the week
Trail Blazers ($1.62) vs. Nets ($2.35):
The Portland Trail Blazers haven’t lived to expectations this season, especially when you have star players like Damian Lillard, but they have a good chance of getting into form when they come up against the Nets.
With home advantage, the Nets’ chances of winning increase, but they have looked dreadful this season and it would take a big turnaround for them to start stringing wins together.
We’re expecting Portland to start making their run to the playoffs and a win against the Nets is necessary.
Hawks ($1.62) vs. Bucks ($2.35):
Since losing LaMarcus Alridge, the Atlanta Hawks haven’t declined as much as some punters would have thought.
The Hawks are 23-16 on the season and the Bucks are 16-25, but we’re smelling a home underdog. Playing home underdogs is one of the best ways to make money betting on American sport and this looks a good situation.
The Bucks are 11-7 at home a big man Greg Monroe is averaging a handy 15.7 points per game. With outside players that can get hot, the Bucks will be pulling off many more upsets this season.
Heat ($1.76) vs. Nuggets ($2.11):
The Denver Nuggets are fresh off beating the Golden State Warriors and how that plays with their mentality will make this game interesting.
Danilo Gallinari is having a great season with 18.9 points per game and six rebounds, but the Heat have Chris Bosh to counter that, not to mention a Dwayne Wade as well.
The 22-17 Heat have a losing record away from home, which is concerning, but their overall form has been solid and they can call on a number of stars to get the job done. LeBron James leaving had its impact, but Bosh has taken on the burden of carrying the Heat to the playoffs.
We think the Heat will be hard to handle at $1.76.
Cavaliers ($1.76) vs. Rockets ($2.11):
The Cavaliers continue their road trip when they take on the Houston Rockets. LeBron James and the Cavs have a handy record of 27-9 and they face a Rockets team which is struggling to find its identity.
The Cavs have a tough road trip which features a game against the San Antonio Spurs and they should appreciate playing Houston (21-19) which can’t seem to find any rhythm.
It’s great to watch James, Irving and their teammates in action when they’re hot. If the supporting crew of Iman Shumpert and J.R Smith can fire up, the Cavs will likely taste success here.
Saturday NBA multi-bet
Trail Blazers – $1.62
Bucks – $2.35
Heat – $1.76
Cavaliers – $1.76
