Spurs Visit Brooklyn, Bulls Clash With Warriors In Thursday Night Doubleheader

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/5/2014 8:10:36 PM

The NBA All-Star break is right around the corner and the focus will narrow somewhat this Thursday with just four teams in action. The Golden State Warriors are set to host the Chicago Bulls in one of the premier online sports betting match ups of a high-scoring offense vs. a stingy defense, but not before the San Antonio Spurs continue to try and get back on track when they visit the Brooklyn Nets earlier in the evening.

The Spurs have struggled with a number of injuries of late, and a .500 record over their last 10 games has them trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder by three games at the top of the Western Conference standings. San Antonio finally has Tony Parker and Tiago Splitter back in the line up, and they have to pull things together now before they fall too far back of the Thunder for top spot. Home advantage will be key in a potential conference final between those teams, and the Spurs have been excellent on the road all season. The Nets have shown signs of life with veterans Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson, and Kevin Garnett, but consistency is still an issue. Brooklyn is finally seeming to turn things around and it looks like they will be able to salvage a playoff spot with a strong finish, but expecting them to take down the defending Western Conference champions may be a little too much, regardless of where this online betting is being played.

NBA Betting Pick: San Antonio Spurs – 5.5

Chicago Bulls @ Golden State Warriors
Thursday, 10:30 PM ET

One of the most anticipated match ups of the week will feature an interesting showdown of offense vs. defense, as the Warriors look to stop the bleeding at home against the defensive-minded Bulls. Chicago has struggled as the visiting team this season, and their offense will have a hard time keeping up with Golden State unless the defense really steps up with a dominant sports betting performance. The Bulls rank second in the NBA in points allowed with an average of just 92.8 per game against, compared to their 29th-ranked offense that has averaged 92.2 points per game. That shows how little room for error there is with this Chicago team, especially on the road where the Warriors are at their most dangerous. Stephen Curry has averaged a team-high 24.3 points per game on an offense that has struggled with consistency, and needs to get more secondary scoring to crack the top-10 in the NBA. That could lead to Golden State looking elsewhere for trade options, although at this point it’s up to Harrison Barnes and Andre Iguodola behind Curry and Klay Thompson. The Warriors still aren’t deep enough to challenge for Western Conference supremacy, but they are good enough to take care of business on Thursday night.

NBA Betting Pick: Golden State Warriors – 4.5
