NBA Multi bet of the Weekend| March 30

Easter Saturday in Australia will play host to a huge slate of NBA games, with no less than 24 teams set to take to the floor across the course of the day. Among those 12 games are plenty which carry a whole lot of significance, including the Lakers vs the Pacers, Suns vs the Thunder, Timberwolves vs the Nuggets and Mavericks vs the Kings to round out the day. Take a look at our three-leg parlay for this huge day in the association below. 

Los Angeles Lakers @ Indiana Pacers

Saturday, 30th of March at 10.10am AEDT, Gainbridge Fieldhouse 

Both the Lakers and the Pacers have a lot to play for over the remaining nine or ten games of the season, each of them embroiled in a tight battle in their respective conferences for the spots in the lower rungs of the playoffs. Though they boast near identical records, the Pacers are a lot better placed in the weaker Eastern Conference, sitting in sixth while the Lakers are back in ninth in the West. But it’s the Lakers who appear to be gathering steam as the postseason nears. After losing back to back games against first the Kings and then the Warriors – both teams with whom they are fighting for similar spots – they have hit a great run of form, winning five consecutive games. Included among those wins are a victory over the Pacers, a rousing double-overtime defeat of the Bucks without LeBron James, and a comfortable win over the Grizzlies without Anthony Davis in their most recent outing. Both of those two are again listed as questionable for this one; LeBron is listed as questionable every game but he will almost certainly play, while Davis’ status is a little more up in the air. Still, they have managed impressively without one of these two across their past two games, with D’Angelo Russell continuing to play well, and Austin Reaves putting together one of his best stretches of the season. The Pacers, meanwhile, have been decent without being spectacular of late, basically trading wins for losses, though in their latest outing they were really poor when going down by 26 points to the Bulls. The Lakers have a higher ceiling than the Pacers and are beginning to show it with the whips cracking, and at better than even money odds with NBA betting sites they look like good value to kick off our weekend multi. 

Houston Rockets @ Utah Jazz

Saturday, 30th of March at 12.40pm AEDT, Delta Center 

A couple of weeks ago, it looked like the ten teams that would make the playoffs and Play-In Tournament in the Western Conference was all but decided. But the Rockets have changed all that, with their best run of form of the season coming just in the nick of time and putting them within a game of the Warriors in tenth spot with ten games still to go. They have won ten games on the trot, a streak which extends to two games before their star young center Alperen Sengun went down injured, and since his absence they have surprisingly been able to play their best basketball of the year. There have been a few easy wins along this ten game winning streak, but they have also knocked off the Kings, Cavaliers, and most impressively, the Thunder in overtime in their most recent game. What’s more, they’ve been beating up on a lot of those teams, perhaps most notably when they put up 147 points in a 27-point demolition of, you guessed it, the Jazz. Utah is just one spot behind Houston in the West, but that belies the true difference between these two teams, and the 8.5 games which separates them is a more accurate reflection of where they are both at. The Jazz are limping to the end of the season with nothing to play for, having lost six games in a row and nine of their last ten, and up against a Rockets team which is playing as well as anyone in the league it’s hard to see them having a chance. And if the most recent matchup between these two teams is anything to go by, this won’t be close either. With the line at just 5.5 with most betting sites, this looks like a great spot for the Rockets. 

Dallas Mavericks @ Sacramento Kings

Saturday, 30th of March at 1.10pm AEDT, Golden 1 Center 

In a day with plenty of games of consequence, this might be the most significant of them all, with the Mavericks and the Kings separated by just one game as they both fight for the coveted sixth position in the Western Conference. This will be the second time in a row they have played, and last time it was an absolute rout in favour of the Mavericks, who won by 36 points. Don’t expect as one-sided an affair this time around, but regardless, we aren’t looking at the end result in this one. Instead, we’re focusing on Luka Doncic, a man who has led what has been a pretty thin Mavericks outfit for much of the year to a potential sixth seed and who is averaging an absurd 33.9 points, 9.1 rebounds and 9.8 assists this season. Unsurprisingly with those numbers, triple doubles are not unusual for Doncic, but they have been particularly common of late. Through late February and early March he went on a streak of seven of them in a row, and while that has since come to an end he has still recorded one in two of his last four games. Harking back to the beginning of that streak he is at nine of his last 13, but despite that you can get comfortably better than even money odds for him to do so again with NBA betting agencies. There is no doubt that he has slowed up from a triple double perspective over the last few games, but on a nightly basis he is still probably a close to 50/50 proposition to pick one up. At $2.60, he looks like a really good value bet to hopefully secure a nice multi hit for the weekend.
