Heat, Thunder Continue To Push The Tempo Heading In To This Weekend

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/2/2014 8:21:05 PM

The “riggin for Wiggins” theme is in full effect throughout the NBA, as teams continue to push for the worst record and the chance to draft college star Andrew Wiggins with the first-overall pick. That theme is most noticeable in the East, where only three teams have winning records to open the New Year, including the defending NBA champion Miami Heat, which are back in action this online sports betting weekend.

Miami Heat @ Orlando Magic
Saturday, 7:00 PM ET

The Heat is one game back of the Indiana Pacers as of Thursday night, and they won’t have it easy the rest of the way as those teams look to fend one another off for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Indiana clearly realizes how important the home advantage is, and will look to beat Miami out for top spot to grab a hold of it for a potential East Final series. That will mean both teams bringing their best as they try and win the games they are supposed to, so there is little reason to expect them to slow down against inferior opponents. Orlando has held its own despite a limited roster, but don’t expect them to pull off the upset this weekend.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Minnesota Timberwolves
Saturday, 8:00 PM ET

The Thunder are back on top of the Western Conference standings thanks to a strong record both at home and on the road, but they face a tough match up this weekend at Minnesota. The Timberwolves have underachieved with a .500  live betting record to this point, but they should be able to create match up problems for Oklahoma City with Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic down low. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have continued to rank among the elite scoring tandems in the league, but the Thunder still isn’t very big down low. Both teams are capable of putting up a ton of points, so look for Minnesota to come out on top in what should be another high-scoring game.

Los Angeles Clippers @ San Antonio Spurs
Saturday, 8:30 PM ET

The Spurs are right behind Oklahoma City in the West standings, keeping pace even though they have had to deal with a ton of injuries. San Antonio will face another tough test this sports betting weekend, as they take on a Clippers’ team that will be ready to try and steal a game on the road in a tough spot. Los Angeles certainly has the weapons to put up some points, and it will be interesting to see how the Spurs handle them. San Antonio should have its big three intact for this game though, and the Clippers may not be mentally strong enough to beat them on the road just yet. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan continue to play at an elite level, and the Spurs are simply dominant at home when they are healthy.
