NBA Multi bet of the Weekend| March 4

The action starts early for NBA Sunday, with the first game for the day to tip off at 5:10am Monday morning Australia time. Close to 12 hours of basketball will ensue, and there are some seriously good matchups in there; the Clippers taking on the Timberwolves, the Celtics hosting the Warriors, and the day concluding with a big game between the Thunder and the Suns. Our multi for the day focuses on a couple of the best players in the competition who are in some frightening form, before heading to Phoenix for what looks like a tough spot for the home side. Check it out below. 

Philadelphia 76ers @ Dallas Mavericks

Monday, 4th of March at 5.10am, American Airlines Center

The first leg of our multi begins with the day’s early game, and focuses on one of the most talented offensive players we have ever seen. Luka Doncic is generally perceived as a couple of rungs down the ladder for the MVP race, which is hard to believe considering he is averaging close to a 35-point triple double. He has transformed what is otherwise a pretty average Mavericks roster – particularly with Irving out, as he has been for large portions of the season – into a playoff contender, and now, with Kyrie having been back for an extended period of time, he is playing as well as ever. Doncic has enjoyed triple doubles in his past two games, and while it was a few successive games before then that he had another, two other of his last five games have seen him fall short of the feat by just a solitary rebound. He has been just a board away from having four triple doubles in his last five games, but despite that he is paying $3 to have one in this game. Points obviously won’t be a concern and based on his assist numbers in recent games – he is averaging 11.6 in his last five outings – he should be at pretty short odds to get to ten of them as well. Rebounds is the most likely concern, but given that he has had at least nine of them in six of his last seven games, I am more than happy to take the value provided by NBA betting sites in the Luka Doncic to record a triple double market to give our multi a good boost. 

Golden State Warriors @ Boston Celtics

Monday, 4th of March at 7.40am, TD Garden

I don’t know if you have heard, but Steph Curry is a pretty good shooter. And the greatest shooter of all time just so happens to be in some pretty good shooting form over the past couple of days, too, even by his extremely lofty standards. Curry has hit 15 threes over his past two outings – seven last game and eight the game before that – at a clip of just under 50%. Pretty nice numbers, though it isn’t all that unusual. In his past ten games he’s had at least six of them five times for a strike rate bang on 50%, and lo and behold his total threes made line for this game sits at 5.5. But while that might sound like the correct number for betting agencies to set it at, I like his chances of hitting the over. Aside from the fact that he’s hit 15 in his past two games, he’s also been shooting with an abandon that would be reckless for probably any other player in basketball history, but which for him is fair enough. He took 15 attempts from beyond the arc in his most recent game, 18 in the game before that and 16 in the game before that – though he did hit just four of those in the last of those games. That’s a hell of a lot of shots, and there is no reason to think that he will not once again take a similar number in this game. A career 42.6% shooter who is stroking it beautifully over the past couple of games, if Curry takes that many threes once again he will most likely hit at least six of them. There was, as mentioned, an occasion recently in which he went 4-16 from beyond the arc, but if he is taking 15 or more long range attempts he is a significantly better than 50% chance of hitting at least six of them, particularly given his recent form. I like Curry to hit over 5.5 threes as the second leg of our multi. 

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Phoenix Suns

Monday, 4th of March at 1.40pm 

If we are still going strong with two ticks from the above two legs, we will have to wait a little while for the final leg of our multi. The final game of the day in the NBA shapes up as a very good one, with two Western Conference teams with lofty ambitions in 2024 going head to head, and a lot of extremely good players set to take to the floor. But while the Suns could claim to have three of the four best players in this game in Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal, they look too short in the betting with betting sites to me given that they will be coming off a tough game the day prior against the Rockets. That’s not to say they’re all that short – they are actually underdogs – but with the line set at just a couple of points against a team which is in the mix to finish on the top of a stacked Western Conference, there looks to be some value for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and co to get the job done and covered the line. The Thunder are 41-18 on the season and have looked really strong since the All-Star break – well, prior to a bizarre loss to the Spurs in their last game they have been. They came back from the break and demolished a very good Clippers team to the tune of 22 points, before beating the hapless Wizards by a huge 41 points, and then the Rockets twice in succession by 13 and then 17 points. Those were some hefty wins, and though that streak came to an end against San Antonio, every team is entitled to a night off once in a while across the course of an 82 game season. Hopefully, they got it out of their system a couple of days ago. Despite their youth this is a really professional Thunder outfit, and they will be very keen to ensure that loss to the Spurs was a one-off performance. The Suns have not exactly been setting the world on fire since the All-Star break, with a couple of disappointing losses, and playing in what will be their second game in two days and third game in four days, there is reason to think this will be another let down for them. I’m big on the Suns and think if things click they can be a really dangerous side late in the season, but this looms as a bit of a schedule loss for them and against an extremely good Thunder outfit, the 2.5-point line doesn’t look like enough.
