NBA restart betting tips
With just two games, the NBA resumed the game phase last night. Today six games are waiting for the fans, who can look forward to the fact that more than eight or nine hours of live basketball awaits them when the game.
After the teams from the Western Conference started yesterday, the Eastern Conference starts today. There is also the Milwaukee Bucks, which, along with the Lakers and Clippers, are among the top favorites for the title. With Houston and Boston, teams from the expanded circle of favorites are also starting their mission titles.
Orlando Magic vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Predictions and Odds
It starts with Orlando Magic and Brooklyn Nets tonight. Both separate only one game, the Nets with a balance of 30-34 in 7th place and the Magic with 30-35 in 8th place. The advantage of Magic over the wizards (9th place) is 5.5 games so that Magic and Nets the playoffs can only be taken with a bit of bad luck about the play-in games.
Unfortunately, it hit the Nets hard in advance. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, Spencer Dinwiddie, Wilson Chandler, Taurean Prince, and Nicolas Claxton will all be missing and will, of course, leave big holes. At least a little quality could be brought into the squad with Jamal Crawford, Tyler Johnson, Justin Anderson, and Lance Thomas, but it remains to be seen whether the newcomers and the quality of Caris LeVert, Joe Harris and Jarrett
Allen will be enough for big leaps.
The personnel situation in Orlando is a bit more relaxed. They are complete and have a good chance of pushing past the nets. Injuries are cured and of course, the bubble was perhaps the smallest change for the Orlando team when the season ends in their city. This does not result in classic home advantage, although the fact that family and joy are “close” seems to be a small advantage, as some players reported.
Betting Prediction: Orlando Magic
Orlando is the favorite in this game. They lost two of their three games, but it wasn’t particularly easy with the Clippers, Lakers, and Nuggets. Brooklyn’s appearances were also unsuccessful, winning only one of their three games and scoring 68 points in the first duel against the Pelicans. Orlando is better overall and will, therefore, win this game.
Memphis Grizzlies vs Portland Trail Blazers Betting Predictions and Odds
While the teams who already have the playoff qualification can take it easy, the Memphis Grizzlies and Portland Trail Blazers have to give it they’re all in the first game. It could already be a trendsetting game, table eight (Memphis) hits the table ninth (Portland). With a win, the grizzlies could strengthen their position and build confidence for the next two weeks.
The Grizzlies were one of the surprise teams and, as a young team, exceeded their expectations. As a top candidate for the Rookie of the Year Award, Ja Morant is one of the driving horses and was also able to convince in the preparatory games, of which the Grizzlies could only win one.
Portland was one of the disappointments as last year’s conference finalist, but of course hopes for the playoff qualification. They are no longer comparable to the team in the first half of the season, were known to be hired by Carmelo Anthony during the season, and were able to cure the Big Men Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins of their injuries. Lillard and McCollum are fit for this, so the Blazers should normally be expected stronger than just before the end of the season.
Betting Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers
Portland’s vast experience, Lillard and McCollum’s class, and Nurkic and Collins’ recovery provide the best foundation for the goal of the playoffs. Even if Lillard took it slow in the test games at first, you can expect him to be highly motivated right from the start. In the duel with Morant, he is also one step ahead, so that ultimately the tip should go to Portland.
Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: Aug 1, 2020
In the first game, there is also a top-class duel in the east. The Boston Celtics (3rd place) play against the Milwaukee Bucks (1st place). Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are dealing with Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has great chances for the MVP Award this season as well. Milwaukee is in great shape and seems to have the decisive advantage on her side with Giannis.
Betting Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks
Boston may have won one of the two previous games of the season, but they’re just the outsiders today. Although the Celtics with Kemba Walker, Tatum, Brown, or Hayward, for example, have a lot of quality to offer, they will be left behind today. It is unclear whether Kemba is fit and there is still a lot to learn for the young team. Milwaukee seems to go one step further and should, therefore, be able to win the game – led by Giannis Antetokounmpo.
