James Harden just played an amazing game against Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Online betting fans who made the bet online were definitely treated to a game that will occupy their weekend conversations for quite some time.
Houston Rockets @ Orlando Magic (January 7, 08:00 GMT+8)
It’s unbelievable that 26 points and 12 assists has become the standard for James Harden; that proves just how compatible his skill set is to Mike D’Antoni’s coaching style. Expect the Rockets’ octane-powered offence to plough through the Orlando Magic.
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Washington Wizards (January 7, 08:00 GMT+8)
Both teams are struggling to find a stable form at the moment, but the John Wall-led Wizards have more than enough manpower to handle the young Minnesota at home. Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins should make the match interesting for Washington.
Punters interested in watching this game would be intrigued by Washington -5.50 Asian Handicap @ 2.04
Cleveland Cavaliers @ Brooklyn Nets (January 7, 08:30 GMT+8)
LeBron James is highly likely to play against the Nets, but he might play at the Barclays Center without fellow key players Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. However, Kyle Korver’s arrival from the Atlanta Hawks should make the Cavaliers a lot deadlier than they already are.
Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics (January 7, 08:30 GMT+8)
The Sixers are coming off a two-game winning streak when they visit the TD Garden and face the Boston Celtics. However, their abysmal away performance won’t likely leave as much as a blemish on Isaiah Thomas’ face as he outplays and outscores every Sixers player.
It will be a blowout for the Celtics, so Boston -12.50 @ 2.00 should be a nice punt to make.
New York Knicks @ Milwaukee Bucks (January 7, 09:00 GMT+8)
These two sides gave fans a very entertaining basketball game, one that ended in a thrilling Giannis Antetokounmpo buzzer-beater. Expect the second game between these two Eastern Conference rivals to heat up as Carmelo Anthony and co. tries to get even.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Golden State Warriors (January 7, 11:30 GMT+8)
This will be quite a tough match for both sides: the Grizzlies and the Dubs are ranked 1 and 2 in defensive efficiency respectively. However, the Warriors have more options on offence compared to Memphis. If no one among the Memphis bench stepped up in scoring, count on the Dubs to easily win this one.
This game will be a tough call, but the Grizzlies should keep the score close. Memphis +13.00 @ 2.01 is a great pick to make.
Miami Heat @ Los Angeles Lakers (January 7, 11:30 GMT+8)
Hassan Whiteside is still doubtful to make an appearance for the Heat’s away game at the Staples Center, so I find it difficult to see the Lakers losing this game. The only way Miami could win is if the Lakers were thoroughly exhausted by Portland in their previous game.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Sacramento Kings (January 7, 11:30 GMT+8)
The Clippers may be without Blake Griffin, but they have managed to snag wins against Phoenix and Memphis with their deep bench. They should be able to manhandle Sacramento regardless of Rudy Gay’s condition or DeMarcus Cousin’s mood for the night.
