    Tuesday January 17th, 2017. There are 5 NBA games for tonight. Since I am in the USA, all of the NBA betting tips I give out, my bets are placed at Bovada or if I’m using bitcoins then my bets are placed at Nitrogen Sports. If you aren’t in the USA or use bitcoins then check the footer for your location to place your bet on the following games.

    Game: Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets
    Time: 7:30pm EST
    Pick: Toronto Raptors ML

    Brooklyn Nets are on a 10 game losing streak. I don’t trust them to win this game nor do I trust them to cover the spread. However, I feel like if I bet Raptors then the Nets will ball their ass off and somehow cover the spread. So I will just go with Toronto Raptors moneyline.

    Game: Houston Rockets vs Miami Heat
    Time: 7:30pm EST
    Pick: Houston Rockets -8.5

    Houston Rockets is a scoring machine, going against a young team like the Miami Heat. This should be an easy win for the Rockets and I feel that will cover the spread.

    Game: Dallas Mavericks vs Chicago Bulls
    Time: 8:00pm EST
    Pick: Chicago Bulls -5

    This should be a very interesting game, both teams are on a 2 game winning streak coming into the game tonight. The last time the Mavericks played the Bulls was in Dallas winning 107-82. However, the Bulls been struggling on the road this season but at home. It’s a different story. My pick is the Bulls to cover the spread.

    Game: Minnesota Timberwolves vs San Antonio Spurs
    Time: 8:30pm EST
    Pick: Over 200

    Minnesota Timberwolves have picked up their gameplay lately. However, they’re going against the Spurs tonight. The last time they played San Antonio was in Minnesota and lost 105-91. This game could easily go over 200 points total with the Spurs playing at home.

    Game: Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers
    Time: 10:30pm EST
    Pick: Under 230

    Los Angeles Lakers is my favorite team, I try my best to believe in them this season but has failed me countless times. I can’t bet on them but I also can’t bet against them. The over/under is 230 for this game. There is no way that the over will happen so I am going with under 230.
