Mybookie.ag NBA betting enthusiasts will be in for a mega treat this Thursday, as the National Basketball Association presents us with an action-packed Wednesday NBA schedule, featuring some of the best teams in the nation right now. The league-leading Golden State Warriors will be taking a much-needed break from today’s games after setting a new record with a 16-0 start to the season, thanks to yesterday’s convincing win over the Los Angeles Lakers. However, two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors, will be meeting in one of the best games of the day, headlining a couple of other intriguing online sportsbetting NBA games that are briefly previewed and predicted below.

Free NBA Betting Picks: Predicting Best Four NBA Games this Wednesday

 


 

Miami Heat vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Betting Preview and Picks

Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade each scored 16 points for Miami on Monday Night, helping the Heat to claim a solid 95-78 win over the miss-shooting New York Knicks, extending Miami’s winning streak to three games. In their bid to record a fourth win, the Heat will be facing a struggling Detroit team that has lost six of its last eight games, including the humbling 109-88 defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday Night. That said, the Pistons are 2-0 SU and ATS in their last two home games against Miami, and the Detroit team has played some of its best games at home this season, which is likely to motivate them for a solid home performance this Wednesday. Plus, Detroit’s starters rank just second to Golden State in scoring this season, something that could allow them to bounce back strongly and match the likes of Wade and Bosh in shooting.

Writer’s Prediction: Detroit ends its skid with a narrow win and cover over Miami, though with the total looking to stay UNDER as Miami’s surging defense (that has given up an average of just 90.9 points in their recent seven-game home stand) condemning Detroit to a cagey shooting performance.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors NBA betting Preview and Picks

LeBron James had a record-breaking night against Orlando and Kevin Love scored a season-high 34 points plus eight rebounds to lead the Cavs to a 14-point win over the Magic on Monday, their third straight win. The Cavs will, however, not be having it easy this Wednesday when they travel to the Air Canada Centre, Toronto to face the Raptors, who extended their unbeaten run to five games with an impressive 91-80 win over the Clippers in Los Angeles on Sunday. DeMarre Carroll and DeMar DeRozan were incredible on that day, each scoring 21 points for the Raptors, while the team’s defense also contained Blake Griffin and Co., giving the visitors a much-needed win. To win this game, the Cavs (who’ve been far from steady on the road) will need to get their offense going as early as possible, considering they will be facing a resurgent Toronto defense that is giving up just 96.5 points per game this season, good for fifth-best in the NBA. For the Raptors, the onus will be Carroll and DeRozan to have big games, supported by the likes of Luis Scola, who importantly scored 20 points and eight rebounds in the win against the Clippers.

Writer’s Prediction: The Raptors (4-0 ATS in their last four games overall) give another all-rounded performance to eke out a win and cover over the Cavaliers (3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall), with the total looking to go OVER as both teams score 100-plus points each.

Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Betting Preview and Picks

Both the Mavericks and the Spurs have not been playing “beautiful” basketball, but they’ve been doing enough to win most of their games this season. Essentially, that’s the reason San Antonio is coming off an impressive 98-84 win over the Phoenix Suns Monday night, their 11th win of the season that extended their record to 11-3, which is only second to Golden State’s 16-0 slate. The Mavs, on the other hand, are coming off back-to-back road losses against the Grizzlies and the Thunder, dropping their record to 9-6 on the season. This road trip will thus be a chance of Dallas to end its road funk with a win. Given Dallas’ struggles with consistent scoring on the offense, expect the Mavs to have it rough against San Antonio’s NBA-best defense that is allowing just 91.0 PPG, and is coming off a mean showcase that condemned Phoenix to a season-high 28 turnovers. That said, the Mavs have been hanging close with the Spurs, covering the spread in 5 of their last 7 games against San Antonio at the AT&T Center. Even so, the Spurs have ended up winning 6 of those 7 games, so another win looks highly likely for the red-hot San Antonio team.

Writer’s Prediction: San Antonio plays well enough to claim a narrow win, but Dallas figures until late in the game to cover the spread, with the total probably staying UNDER due to the mind-blowing efficiency of San Antonio’s defense.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Betting Preview and Picks

The New Orleans Pelicans (3-11) will be traveling to Phoenix this Wednesday in search of their fourth win of the season against the Suns (7-7). Anthony Davis has been solid in his return from injury, averaging 31.2 points and 3.0 blocks in his last four games, a key reason the Pellies have scored more than 100 points in each of their last three outings. Notably, two of those three games have ended in wins, including their 122-116 win over the Suns on Sunday night. The Suns, meanwhile, followed their Sunday loss to the Pellies with a frustrating 14-point loss to San Antonio Monday night. This game will therefore be an important opportunity for Phoenix to get back to winning ways. For that to happen, Markieff Morris, who is coming off his best performance of the season in the defeat loss to San Antonio, where he scored a season-high 28 points on 12-of-15 shooting and also grabbed eight rebounds, will thus need to lead the team on both ends of the floor once again, with the likes of Eric Bledsoe (team leader 23.2 points, 5.8 assists and 2.0 steals per game) offering support.

Writer’s Prediction: If Bledsoe, who missed Monday’s game and is listed as questionable for this clash due to injury, is available, then take the Suns (who are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games) to get their revenge with a win plus cover. If Bledsoe sits out, then take the Pellies to extend their run to three wins in a row, along with the cover. Either way, this game should be high-scoring like Sunday’s contest, so be on the lookout for an OVER total.
