NBA tips: Back the Warriors and Clippers in our Wednesday 4-fold
Golden State are on fire on the road, and they head our picks in this 8/1 accumulator.
Golden State Warriors to beat Chicago Bulls –
Having won eight of their last nine games – including a 118-108 victory in a finals rematch against the Cleveland Cavaliers last time out – the Warriors are an easy pick on Wednesday night.
The defending champions have won 13 consecutive away games, and last lost on the road back in November.
They should manage to beat the Bulls, who have won three games on the spin but just four of their last nine.
Memphis Grizzlies to beat New York Knicks –
The Grizzlies have been inconsistent this season, but expect them to beat a Knicks team that really struggles on the road.
New York have won just five of 20 away from home, and have suffered 10 defeats in their last 13 overall.
The Knicks are in a defensive slump, allowing an average of 116.8 points over the past four games.
They’ll need to be much better on that front considering Memphis dropped 124 on the Denver Nuggets last time out.
Los Angeles Clippers to beat Denver Nuggets –
The Clippers are on a great run of form with five successive wins, including one against the Houston Rockets – currently the West’s second seeds – last time out.
Only the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder have beaten LA in their last 11 games, and they’ve got a decent record of 13 wins and nine defeats at home this season.
They should make it 14 against the Nuggets, who have lost four of their last six and have won just seven of 23 on the road.
Sacramento Kings to beat Utah Jazz –
The Kings have lost five successive games, but four of those were against likely playoff teams.
They should bounce back against the struggling Jazz, who have only won once in their last six games and boast just four wins from 22 on the road.
These teams have both been poor for the past couple of months, so it’s worth siding with the hosts on Wednesday night and the Kings are good value to win.
