It was close to a snore fest after the Windy City team went up by as many as 26 points. Visit SBOBET and join us now. Memphis and the Los Angeles Clippers were engaged in a fierce duel, but in the end, it was Doc Rivers’ men that prevailed, putting the Clips second in the Pacific behind the Warriors.
Let us wrap up this round up with a quote from Minnesota’s Andrew Wiggins:
Prior to the day’s NBA games commencing, betting odds surely weren’t favourable to teams like the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Denver Nuggets, or the Indiana Pacers. Philly went 0-7 after an 111-88 trouncing in the hands of the Joakim Noah-less Chicago Bulls. Upcoming matches:
Utah at Cleveland – Can the Cavs extend winning streak to seven?
Oklahoma City at Washington – Wizards looking to avoid third straight debacle
New York at Toronto – Can the Knicks make the .500 mark?
Los Angeles Lakers at Miami – Fans still waiting for the Black Mamba’s re-emergence
Dallas at New Orleans – Mavs look to stay above .500; Pelicans hungry for first win
Boston at Milwaukee – Bucks, Celtics looking to continue winning
Charlotte at Minnesota – Wolves eye third straight win
Bulls 111, 76ers 88
Timberwolves 117, Hawks 107
Pacers 97, Magic 84
Nuggets 108, Trail Blazers 104
Warriors 109, Pistons 95
Spurs 106, Kings 88
Clippers 94, Grizzlies 92
But that is sports betting for you – the favourites aren’t always the victors, because the underdogs can always pull off a surprise win, and the Nuggets, Wolves, and Pacers proved it correct this time, versus Portland, Atlanta and Orlando, respectively. Denver have not won against Portland in their last eight meetings and the Pacers are coming off a loss, while their opponent Orlando carry back-to-back wins including a 92-87 demolition of Toronto..

Would you call a betting tip favouring the underdog? Probably not, and that is not surprising.
But other teams are not as successful in beating the odds. As expected, defending champions Golden State torched Detroit City while the San Antonio Spurs put Sacramento on a stranglehold. Minnesota deserves an extra pat in back, after securing third place in the talent-laden Western Conference, and leading the Northwest, ahead of OKC, Portland and Denver.
