NBA betting tips: Sixers to extend Hornets dominance

Some teams have already secured their place in the play-offs but there is plenty still to play for in the regular season and we have three more NBA betting tips tonight.

We enjoyed a clean sweep with our NBA betting predictions on Friday evening and are hoping for more success tonight, starting with the match between the Philadelphia 76ers and Charlotte Hornets.

Philadelphia 76ers @ Charlotte Hornets

These teams have met three times already this season and the Sixers have won all three but the combined margin of victory has been just six points and the two most recent meetings went to overtime.

That suggests there is little to choose between these two, especially with Charlotte having home advantage, and that is reflected in the NBA odds to win with both teams priced up at 10/11.

Philadelphia have enjoyed nine straight wins against the Hornets though and have won four NBA matches in a row, including a 130-125 victory over the Eastern Conference leaders Milwaukee Bucks at the weekend.

Charlotte have lost seven of their last 10 so Philadelphia are an easy pick to kick off our NBA betting predictions.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Milwaukee Bucks

The Lakers head to Milwaukee looking to end a run of three straight defeats, the most recent of which was on Sunday night.

They blew an 11-point lead as they went down 124-123 to the New York Knicks, despite 33 points, six rebounds and eight assists from LeBron James, and have now lost eight of their last nine games.

Their campaign is effectively over and they are already looking ahead to next season so we're eager to oppose them in our NBA betting tips.

The Bucks are three games in front of the Toronto Raptors for the best record in the East and a win tonight would edge them closer to the number one seed in the conference.

Take Milwaukee to cover 12.5 points on the spread.

Golden State Warriors @ Minnesota Timberwolves

Golden State Warriors are now tied with the Denver Nuggets at the top of the Western Conference with a 47-22 record after a 111-105 defeat last night against the San Antonio Spurs, who extended their winning run to nine games.

They are on the road again tonight against the Timberwolves, who have suffered three straight defeats on their travels but are back home in Minneapolis where they have enjoyed six successive wins.

The home team have won each of the last 12 Timberwolves games and covered the line in 10 of the last 11 so we're happy to take them receiving 5.5 points on the spread.
