The Warriors are rolling and they now sit just 0.5 games back of the Nuggets for the top seed in the Western Conference. They’ve won four straight and are 7-3 over their past ten. Last night’s game saw Stephen Curry carry the squad as he hit 11 three-pointers and scored 48 points. After that game, Curry is now averaging 29.4 points per game while his teammate Kevin Durant is averaging 28.2. That is just insane numbers for two teammates to put up.

Two teams that are making moves in the West standings have to be the Spurs and the Rockets. James Harden is single-handedly willing this team back into contention and is a good bet for the MVP. While the Spurs are proving that “never bet against Pop” is still very relevant in today’s NBA.

One team going the wrong way is the Lakers. Yes, LeBron James has been hurt. Last night’s loss at home to the Cavs was bad though. It was the Cavs first win against a West team all season and only their fourth road win of the season. Things will be fine when the King returns, but every game counts when it comes to the West standings.

NHL Betting Tips:

Minnesota Wild vs. Philadelphia Flyers: This is kind of a narrative based type as the last time out the Wild were booed on their home ice as their coach said it was the worst performance he’s ever seen from this team. That kind of thing has to motivate a team and a win feels guaranteed here. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they are playing the Flyers who have been really bad this season. They’ve only scored 14 goals over their past nine games and those struggles should continue here. The Wild are a nice play in this one.

Bet Wild -120

NBA Betting Tips:

Charlotte Hornets vs. San Antonio Spurs: The Spurs are rolling and they’ve been an especially good team at home on the year. They play the Hornets on a road trip and they have really been struggling on it. They’ve dropped games to the Kings, Blazers, and Clippers thus far and now face arguably the best of the bunch. I just really like the depth of the Spurs here against the Hornets and think LaMarcus Aldridge should pretty much have free reign in the front court.

Bet Spurs -9

Utah Jazz vs. Detroit Pistons: This just feels like a match-up of two teams with the same type of game plan, but one team just does it way, way better. The Jazz have a better defense, the better center in Rudy Gobert, and the better scoring guard in Donovan Mitchell. They’ve been benefiting of late as their schedule has come back around to favor them after being the hardest in the league to start the season, and that should continue here. Detroit is a middling team and against a tough West team on the road is not the place that I am looking to back them. They are coming off the emotional win for Blake Griffin at the Clippers, but this is a much better team.
