NBA tips: Back the Bucks and Thunder in our Wednesday 4-fold
Milwaukee and Oklahoma City head our midweek accumulator, which is priced at 9/1.
Milwaukee Bucks to beat Detroit Pistons –
The Pistons won five games in a row after trading Blake Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers at the end of January, but have since lost six of their last seven and each of their last three.
The only team they beat during that run were the Atlanta Hawks – who are bottom of the Eastern Conference – and Detroit now face another tricky game against the sixth-placed Bucks.
Milwaukee have lost their last two games, but they’re the superior team of these two and – at odds-against – are a decent price.
Memphis Grizzlies to beat Phoenix Suns –
In a meeting of two teams on 10-game losing streaks, it’s the Grizzlies’ miserable run that will come to an end on Wednesday night.
Memphis’ last win came against the Suns on 29 January, and they’re a much better team at home than away, with 13 of their 18 victories coming on their own court.
Phoenix have lost 21 of 30 on the road this season, and haven’t won on their travels since 19 January.
Oklahoma City Thunder to beat Dallas Mavericks -
The Thunder have been inconsistent this season, but they still occupy a playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 35-27 record.
Oklahoma City have won five of their last eight games, and should add another victory to their tally in Dallas.
The Mavericks have been terrible all season and particularly over the past month, losing 11 of their last 14 games.
New Orleans Pelicans (+4.5) to beat San Antonio Spurs –
The Spurs have been poor over the past month, losing six of their eight games in February.
They now face a Pelicans team on a streak of six successive wins, three of which came on the road.
New Orleans won 107-90 when these teams met in November, and should keep this one close at the very least.
