NBA Multi bet of the Weekend| November 18

After a quiet Friday (Australian time) in the NBA, with just two games being played, Saturday will play host to a big slate of games which will see more than half of the teams in the league take to the floor. Included among those teams are many of the championship favourites, a lot of exciting young talent, and of course, some juicy value for punters. Check out our best bets for Saturday’s action, which combine to make up our weekend multi. 

New York Knicks @ Washington Wizards

November 18th, 11.10am AEDT, Capital One Arena 

The Wizards are, it’s safe to say, not good. They’ve managed to snag just two wins out of their last 11 games but have now lost four on the trot, and after establishing a big half-time lead against the Raptors have now lost their last six quarters by 36 points. What’s more, that Raptors game aside, they’ve rarely lost by small margins. In fact, of their nine losses, that game is the only one which was by less than 6.5 points – incidentally the line for this game. The Knicks, meanwhile, are humming along nicely after a slow start, having won four of their past five games to take their record to 6-5. The only loss in that time was to the Celtics while three of the four wins were by 14 points or more, and even with RJ Barrett missing the past couple of games they’ve still been impressive. Though they’re on the third leg of a road trip in this game, Capital One Arena isn’t exactly a fortress, and they should be able to head in there and cover the -6.5 line against the Wizards. 

Phoenix Suns @ Utah Jazz

November 18th, 2.10pm AEDT, Delta Center 

The Suns incredibly talented triumvirate of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal should, when it all comes together, be a serious contender to win this year’s championship, but thus far we haven’t had the chance to see them all together – and even two of them getting on the floor at the same time has been a stretch. In this game, that may all change. Booker is back from his own injury while Beal, who was touch and go for their last clash, is expected to be ready to join he and Durant. The Suns haven’t been a super high scoring team so far this season, but once they have their full squad, expect defense to take a back seat. They will be unstoppable offensively and should put up huge scores regularly; defensively they might not be quite so potent. They will have plenty of high scoring games regardless of who they play, but aiding the case of the over further in this game is the fact that the Jazz have been in some high scoring games of their own of late. Three of their last four games have seen at least 243 points scored, and that, along with the Suns finally getting their star trio together, points to this game sailing over the 237.5 total match points line. 

Houston Rockets @ Los Angeles Clippers

November 18th, 2.40pm AEDT, Arena

This is a super intriguing game. The Rockets are young and inexperienced, but so far this season are playing out of their skin. The Clippers, meanwhile, have three former MVPs on their team to go with Paul George – who has finished as high as third – and yet they can’t win a game to save themselves. The bookmakers, clearly, are favouring that experience over current form. The Rockets have been given a 6.5-point head start in this game despite the fact that they have won six games on the trot – including two wins by a combined total of 43 points against the Kings, a 34-point demolition of the Lakers and a win over the reigning champions, Denver, earlier this week – while the Clippers have lost five in a row since James Harden slotted into their starting lineup. Maybe within a few weeks this will be a reasonable line – it seems likely that the Rockets will regress at some point, while the Clippers will, given their talent, surely find their groove eventually. For the time being, however, the visitors in this game are playing a hell of a lot better than the Clippers, meaning the Rockets 6.5-point head start looks very enticing.
