The UF Team name their top tips for this evening’s NBA action
After a slight hiatus, our basketball tipster returns with two selections for this evening’s NBA action.
He has selected two spread picks for tonight’s games, focusing on the Phoenix Suns and the Charlotte Hornets.
Here are the Best Bets for Friday’s NBA matchups.
STICK WITH THE SUNS
With six wins in their last eight road games, Phoenix seems to be enjoying their travels as of late.
They head to Georgia this evening to take on the Hawks – who have just recorded back-to-back successes versus the Lakers and Raptors.
Kevin Durant produced a perfect homecoming performance against the Nets, putting up 33 points in a solid 136-120 win for Phoenix.
The Hawks have only managed to cover the spread in five home games all season – they have also lost 13 games at the State Farm Arena out of a possible 23.
The Suns seem to be hitting their stride as of late, so a three-and-a-half point deduction looks to be easily coverable here.
TIP: Phoenix Suns -3.5 (-108, FanDuel)
HOPING ON THE HORNETS
Despite being on a five-game losing streak, the Hornets could prove to be an interesting option on the spread this evening.
The Eastern Conference side are on the road once again – as they face the impressing Thunder at the Paycom Center.
While they will be disappointed to lose against the lowly Detroit Pistons last time out, they could bounce back with a fair showing against one of the tougher sides in the NBA.
Oklahoma City have been a bit wobbly as of late – suffering defeat to the Pistons and the Timberwolves before just getting the better of the Nuggets last time out.
A lot of this does depend on the return of LaMelo Ball for the Hornets, but they could keep this closer than the 16-point gap suggested.
