NBA Betting: Tons of Action in the NBA this WeekPublished November 6, 2017 by Sol FH
The NBA is already passed the first 10 games with a ton of action left this season. Check out some of this week's games.
The NBA started a few weeks ago, amidst the MLB playoffs and world series won this year for the first time by the Astros. Now, sports fans have football, soccer, hockey, and of course, the NBA to watch for the next few months. It is now the beginning of the season, as we are down 10 games (on average) with approximately another 72 games for each team to go before the post-season.
Even though this is the beginning, some interesting things have been happening around the league that many would consider being a shock in comparison to the last few years. Surprise, the Cavaliers are far from the top in the East, and, even though the Warriors are close to the top in the West, they have yet to take over.
Before we get carried away with who is going to win this year and make some crazy speculations, let's take a look at some of this week's top games.
Miami Heat vs Golden State Warriors
Tonight is probably one of the best games we will watch all week as the Warriors host the Heat. After a relatively shaky start, the Warriors look to have their mojo back. They ended a three-game road trip by sweeping the Clippers, Spurs, and Nuggets. They were on a roll averaging 126 points throughout all three games and didn't lose the ball more than 14 times across the games.
The Heat are not in very good shape in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. It will be extremely difficult for Miami to come to Oakland and leave with the win.
888 Sport has posted odds in steep favor of a Warriors win at 1.06, while the Heat is at 11.00 for an underdog win.
Boston Celtics vs Atlanta Hawks
Nothing could be further apart than the Celtics and the Hawks in the Eastern Conference. Boston is leading the league with its 8-2 record, with all of their wins coming in-a-row. They started the season with two losses back-to-back, but since then it has been smooth sailing for what looks like the best Celtics team we have seen in recent years.
The Hawks are the exact opposite at 2-8, the third worst record in the league, and are in the last place in the East. With the Hawks hosting the Celtics they still have a chance to pull off the upset, but they will need their starting five, and their bench to start playing.
The odds at Betfair Sports are a bit closer in comparison to the Warriors/Heat game but are still in favor of the Celtics at 1.30. The Hawks need to get their season started and a win tonight would help a lot at 3.60.
Other big games this week include the Cavs vs Bucks, Raptors vs Bulls, and the Wizards vs the Mavericks on Tuesday Night. Action on Wednesday Night will again feature the Celtics against the Lakers.
