2018-19 NBA Betting Picks: Wednesday January 9th

2018-19 NBA Betting Picks: Wednesday January 9th

It took something special from the Kings @ Suns game on Tuesday to end our Pick of the Day winning streak. The Kings led by as many as 21 during the third term, but ended up collapsing and losing by four points to the Booker-less Suns. It was a heartbreaking way to end our run, but we’re confident we will get back on the winners list with our pick on Wednesday. Good luck to everyone following!

Best Bet Wednesday January 9th

We’ve gone with something a little different today, as we feel there’s some really strong value in a certain three leg moneyline parlay.

Leg 1: Atlanta Hawks @ Brooklyn Nets (7:30pm ET)

The first leg sees the Hawks and Nets face off in an Eastern Conference match-up. The Hawks were brave in their defeat against Raptors on Tuesday, but will have their hands full against the Nets in the second leg of a back to back. The Nets have been terrific over the past month and have surged into the playoff picture in the east. Even short handed, we still have the Nets taking care of the fatigued Hawks quite comfortably at home.

Leg 2: Phoenix Suns @ Dallas Mavericks (8:30pm ET)

Second up in our parlay we’ve got the Western Conference match-up between the Suns and the Mavericks in Dallas. The Suns are coming off perhaps their most inspiring win of the season, coming from 20+ points down against the Kings to win. However, they’re now on the second leg of a back to back and are likely to be without Devin Booker once again. On the other hand, the Mavericks are one of the best home teams in the NBA and will be desperate to get back on the winners list. We have the Mavs being too strong at home here.

Leg 3: Orlando Magic @ Utah Jazz (9pm ET)

The third and final leg of our parlay is the cross conference duel between the Magic and the Jazz in Utah. The Magic have dropped off since an impressive start to the season, and are looking like slipping out of the playoff picture in the East unless they can turn things around. Meanwhile, the Jazz are coming off a really solid performance in Milwaukee and look set to go on a strong run with the soft draw they have ahead of them. We have the Jazz too strong at home here.

Prediction

With the Nets, Mavericks, and Jazz all to win you have some really solid value above even odds. All three teams are in a position where they need to win, while their opponents are all handicapped in one way or another. All in all, we’re confident in recommending a play here.
