Warriors to continue streak with landslide win over Bucks
The NBA train rumbles on at pace with another 12 games scheduled and we’ve picked out four of the strongest bets to bring you the exclusive rights to a 4/1 treble on the nights action.
Charlotte Bobcats to beat Washington Wizards at 5/6
Washington head to Charlotte still seeking their first win in 2014 and would tie their season-worse losing streak should they fall to a fourth straight loss in the Bobcats’ backyard.
Charlotte, on the other hand, snapped their worst skid of the current campaign by avoiding a sixth straight loss last time out against the Sacramento Kings.
The Cats are 6-1 when veteran Al Jefferson makes at least 22 points in a game and will be buoyed by the fact that he averages 21.2 and a double-double in his last five appearances against the Wizards.
What’s more, the Bobcats are 7-3 at home against their latest opponents since 2008/09 and won four of five meetings last season.
Denver Nuggets to beat Boston Celtics at 5/16
A slumping Boston offense won’t be able to shake off the rust that’s encased them against a rejuvenated Nuggets outfit who’ve won two in a row after turning around an eight game slump.
The Celts have averaged 90.5 points per game at a 40.5 percent field goal success rate in the last six games, losing four of those games, and have dropped four on the bounce and eight of the last nine meetings with Denver.
Golden State Warriors (-9.0) to beat Milwaukee Bucks at 10/11
No team in the NBA currently has a longer win streak than the Warriors’ nine, a surge that is the best in franchise history for close to 40 years.
In that time the fifth-best side in the Western Conference have outscored their various slain foes by an average of 11.2 points, so the nine that Ladbrokes are offering as a make-weight against the league-worst Bucks shouldn’t be a problem.
