The next competitive game which we choose to predict and make an analyse is going to be from NBA between the teams of Chicago Bulls and Charlotte Hornets. The game will be held in United Center at Chicago.
We are on a very good winning streak and we are feeling lucky with our next pick in this amazing contest. The Charlotte Hornets’ slump continued in their 115-107 home loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Charlotte Hornets shot a solid 46.9% from the field but only went six for 26 from the three-point range. The visitors leading scorer Kemba Walker played big minutes and tallied 20 points on 7 for 17 shooting. The 27-year old point guard is only averaging 18.2 points this month and a total of 21.5 points and a team-best 6.6 assists. The Bulls team are in for a long season as they have the worst offence in the entire NBA.
They have dropped five consecutive encounters and are 1 - 4 on their home court this season. Chicago is scoring an average of only 92 points per game. They are conceding an average of 103.9 points, placing them ninth overall. It looks a great pick for the home win. The odds are pretty good and will be trying with a small stake.
Another good winning tip yesterday. Oklahoma Thunder beat his rival of Milwaukee with an amazing results 91-110 in the regular time. Buck’s team was again involved in the next game which is coming from NBA against the Charlotte Hornets team.
The Milwaukee Bucks team is on the road as they travel to faces off against the team of Charlotte Hornets tonight. Both teams are playing their third game in four nights here with the Hornets team. The Milwaukee team has been playing well early on this season and already beat Charlotte at the BMO Harris Bradley Center last week.
Antetokounmpo has elevated his game from last season and is the early frontrunner for the MVP. Granted, a lot can change over the next five-plus months but that is still impressive. The Hornets team is playing solid defence. Against each other, these two clubs have played 17 competitive games in all competitions as 12 of all those meetings are won by the home team with a great confidence. We are backing to the home win because the visitors have a tough game yesterday and they didn’t get yet enough their rest for the current game. Charlotte Hornets has all chances to win with a big points margin.
It is a Southeast Division tilt between two teams chasing a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference down in South Beach. The Charlotte Hornets are on the road as they take on the Miami Heat today night (+2 GMT).
Charlotte won their second straight with a 100-88 win at home over the Pacers Monday night. Miami won for the 19th time in their last 23 games as they beat Cleveland 106-98 on the road Monday to sweep a home and home set. The Heat holds a 57-41 advantage in the all-time regular season but Charlotte has taken the last three matchups. Charlotte has put up back to back wins after a dreadful stretch to keep themselves afloat in the race for the final playoff spot in the East. The Hornets entered Tuesday three games behind the Bulls. Charlotte ran to an 11 point lead after the opening quarter and extended that to 21 at halftime. The Hornets weathered the storm in the third quarter and held on to get the win.
In other hand we have Miami heat. Hosts swept a home and home series with the conference leading Cavaliers and stayed within 1.5 games of the final playoff spot in the East. Miami led by seven after one quarter, by 10 at the half and extended their edge to 18 after three quarters before easing off a bit in the fourth. The Heat shot 42.9 percent from the field but did knock down 16 of their 35 three point attempts in the game.
The Heat has been on a roll and facing an inconsistent Charlotte team does not seem to be something that would faze them. After all, we just saw Miami beat Cleveland twice in three days. It is easy to point at the first one as a game where the Cavaliers rested LeBron James and Kyrie Irving but they were at full strength for Monday’s game and still came up short. Charlotte turned away Denver and Indiana in their last two but it is safe to say that those two teams do not match up with the prestige of the Cavaliers. Probably Miami heat will take a very easy victory from this battle.
The next NBA game which we are going to post after the amazing win of Memphis Grizzlies last night will be between Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Hornets. Here we are going to search for the surprise, if we could call it a surprise.
Actually, we cannot say that Portland Trail Blazers are the 100% better than the Hornets but the odds are strongly against them. We think that this is because Hornets are in a poor form at the moment as they lost their last 3 games against no that tougher opponents, excluding Golden State Warriors. We believe that it is high time this negative serie to be stopped and Charlotte is going to win this game.
The odds are pretty good. The bookies are highly underestimating the Hornets as giving them odds around 2.40. We believe that this is not like that and this game is more close to be a 50-50 than a certain win for Trail Blazers.
After the very unlucky void tip last night between Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets as the game finished with just 3 points win for the Timberwolves and we had to void the pick, the next game is between Charlotte Hornets and Washington Capitals.
Here we will strongly go for Charlotte Hornets as they are the better team. The team which Jordan is now managing is one of the most unpredictable team in the NBA but they can win against anyone and they can lose from anyone. Our tip here will be Hornets to win with difference but it will be a poor and tough game. Washington Capitals are in a bad run recently, while the Hornets are playing amazing, especially at home.
Even the home factor will be crucial for us and we will go for Hornets. A win for them is staked at around 1.40 which is good even for single without handicap but we want to gamble a bit and we will go for 5 points difference.
We are now two defeats in a row as after the unsurprising loss of New York Knicks, last night another favourite for winning its game - Phoenix Suns lost their game from one of the weakest teams in the NBA - Dallas Mavericks.
Tonight we will again make a prediction about Philadelphia 76ers as this time we are very confident that they are going to lose the game because they are facing one of the toughest and more difficult for winning teams - Charlotte Hornets. We believe that the away team will take this game as they will even take it with difference of at least 5 points. They are simply the better one and after the serie of losing games they will try to go back on the winning road.
Philadelphia 76ers did so many wins this season. They did not have so many wins during the whole last season actually. Charlotte Hornets lost 4 of their 5 games but they were playing away from home against tough opponents. Now they are playing away as well but against not that good opponent so they should not have problems in taking this game with difference.
It was really a thrilling performance last night for Oklahoma City Thunder which team finally took an away game and they did it against the very strong team of Chicago Bulls. It will be interesting to follow the next games of Oklahoma City Thunder but before that we would like to post a prediction about one other game.
The game which we are going to predict next is between Houston Rockets and Charlotte Hornets. It looks like that Houston Rockets are playing alien basketball and their winning streak is rapidly growing. Actually, we think that this is going to be stopped tonight and the Hornets can surprise very badly the team of Rockets.
Of course, we are not that optimistic in this pick so we will pick Charlotte Hornets but on asian handicap. The game is good for this and we think that the line of 9 points is pretty good to be missed. In our opinion, Houston Rockets can take this game but they are not going to win with a margin bigger than 9 points.
Indiana Pacers lost another won game and now their streak of such games increased to two. We simply cannot understand how this team can play amazing basketball for 2-3 quarters and in one quarter to ruin everything they did before that. Anyway, our winning streak was stopped because of this game and now what we can do is to make another win prediction.
Actually, we will start immediately with this and our next game from the NBA will be the home game of Charlotte Hornets which is against the team of Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are playing good basketball this season. They have all the chances after the regular season to find a place in the teams which are going to play in the playoffs. They are mixing the games with good and bad ones. Unfortunately, they started the season with so many wins and some people thought that the real Chicago Bulls is back but in the past games the losses are taking advantage over the wins.
In the past 10 games the team from Chicago is having just 3 wins. They are playing terribly away from home and they lost against teams like Dallas, Portland, Minnesota and even Milwaukee Bucks (twice for 3 days). In this game we will strongly go for the Hornets as we do not think that they are in a better condition but at least in home they are playing solid and we do not think we are going to see a surprise here.
Los Angeles Lakers did a not very nice surprise last night as they lost by 6 points from New York Knicks as in the hero for Knicks was Derrick Rose who scored 25 points and was on fire during the whole game. Tonight there are some more NBA games as we will predict one of them.
The game which we liked most is between Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets as we will try to get back on the winning road and started the win with a correct prediction. Indiana Pacers are one of the best teams at home but they are very unstable this season and because of that the bookies are giving them huge odds, which is good for us as tipsters. We think that this game will be tough as Hornets are among the best teams in the NBA this season but we do not believe that Indiana Pacers are going to lose this game at home.
In this game we will strongly go for Pacers as we think that since the few bad results in the past few games they will start winning and the fact that they are playing some home games in a row will boost their confidence and will bring them motivation to make some wins and go up in the standings.
Houston Rockets did another surprising performance last night and now we are sorry that we did not go for Indiana Pacers to take their game with difference against Orlando Magic. Tonight there are a couple of great games from the NBA program too.
The game we liked most is between Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets. This will be very matched game and we believe that these odds are not matching this game. Minnesota are one of the most serious teams at home. This season they are on the maxima - they can lose against anyone, but they can win against anyone too. The home factor plays a vital role in their games as they have 2/2 record at home this season.
They have all the chances to stop the Hornets in this game as Charlotte are not performing very good in the past few games. Actually the team of Michael Jordan is making terrible season so far. But of course it is too early to make any conclusions yet. We believe that this will be tough game but we are seeing Timberwolves winning this game on 2.10 odds.
