With the new season over a month old, we’re continuing our NBA predictions with a 9/2 treble from the games being played overnight in America.
Bwin offers a wide range of betting markets on every match, but we’re sticking to the spread and money line NBA odds for our top tips.
Bucks to beat Cavaliers @ 4/7
Cleveland cost us a 9/2 pay-out last week when upset 127-120 by Sacramento as 5.5 points favourites and we’re not ready to forgive or forget that performance.
The Cavaliers rattled off eight consecutive victories early on this term but are now on a four-game slump after since suffering further setbacks versus Golden State and Minnesota.
Admittedly, Milwaukee must also put a sticky patch of three defeats in four outings behind them after beginning the campaign with a 9-0 tear and they have missed injured forward Khris Middleton.
However, Giannis Antetokounmpo should be sharper for returning from a spell in the treatment room in a 121-106 loss to Atlanta and the Bucks are strong enough on defence to do the business in this Central Division top-of-the-table contest.
Mavericks -10.5 points vs Rockets @ 19/20
This is a significant spread to cover but Houston are in a major rut at 2-12 this term and have suffered heavy defeats in their last couple of matches.
The Rockets were crushed 119-106 when visiting New Orleans and then went down 122-106 when hosting the Los Angeles Clippers, despite their opponents emptying the bench after leading by 11 entering the fourth quarter.
Dallas have again been dominant at American Airlines Center so far this season with a 7-1 record and we like the fact that they almost blew a 25-point lead when shading the Clippers 103-101, because that should ensure they don’t ease up if taking control here.
Suns to beat Warriors @ 4/5
Phoenix prevailed 134-105 with home court advantage when these teams met for the first time this season last month and get the nod to come out on top at Footprint Center again.
The Suns finished off a tough four-match road trip with a heart-breaking 113-112 loss in Miami but still lead the Pacific Division at 8-5 and have won six of seven games played in front of their own fans.
Golden State were impressive when thrashing San Antonio 132-95 to make it three wins from four outings, but those victories were all gained in San Francisco and a 122-115 loss in Sacramento extended their miserable away record to 0-7.
