NBA Betting Tips of the Week

Nets Struggle With Return of Kyrie Irving

For most teams, getting back an All-Pro point guard would be good news. But that hasn’t been the case for the Brooklyn Nets, who continue to show little consistency with Kyrie Irving in the lineup.

The championship-winning guard returned to the Nets four games ago, but Brooklyn has gone just 1-3 straight up and against the spread in that span. Irving’s numbers have been fine, but it seems difficult for him to fit in with his new teammates this season – before the injury that cost him two months, the Nets were 4-7 SU and ATS in games Irving played.

The road doesn’t become easier for Brooklyn. In the next few weeks they’ll play the Sixers and Raptors twice each, plus the Lakers. It’s probably best to avoid the Nets for now while they try to figure out how to play with Irving. Boston had similar issues with the talented yet turbulent point guard last season, too.

Points Coming Easily for T-Wolves With Towns Back

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been a positive “over” play for bettors all season, and that should continue with the return of Karl-Anthony Towns to the lineup. The 25-year-old center is having a monster season, averaging a career-high 25.9 points, 3.4 3-pointers and 4.3 assists per game. He’s also not all that great on defense, so it makes sense that Minnesota has the over in his first two games back from a sore knee that cost him a month.

And Minnesota was hitting the over frequently without him. Including those two games with him, the Timberwolves have gone over in six of their past eight games. Now’s a good time for bettors to jump on some of these totals as Towns continues to post monster offensive numbers.

Rockets Nosedive in Title Odds

What’s going on with the Rockets? Perhaps a lull should have been expected given how dependent they are on James Harden and 3-point shooting, but this has gotten ugly. They’ve lost four of their past five games, and they were favorites in each one. The competition has been good (their losses were on the road to OKC and Memphis, and at home to Portland and the Lakers) but this is still a major step back for a team that was riding high in January.

The result? A lengthening of their title odds. Oddsmakers have moved them from +1200 to +1500. They’re still in play for the No. 2 seed in the West – which would mean avoiding the Lakers until the Western Conference Finals – so we like their season-long odds, but we wouldn’t blame you if you wait to see how active they are at the trade deadline before deciding to roll the dice on Harden and Co.
