NBA Wednesday Slate Preview: Odds, Trends for Top Matchups

Bet NBA with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

The NBA is not letting its foot off the pedal as it nears the All-Star break, as interesting matchups fill tonight’s 10-game slate.

At 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, the teams with the best records in the Eastern Conference and Western Conference face off in Philadelphia.

The Jazz have the NBA’s best record at 27-8 and William Hill’s third-lowest title odds at +450, only trailing the Lakers at +180 and Nets at +275. Meanwhile, the 76ers are atop the Eastern Conference standings at 23-12 and possess the sixth-lowest title odds at 14/1.

The Jazz opened as 3.5-point road favorites at William Hill, however that line has slightly ticked down to Jazz -3 and -150 on the moneyline. Meanwhile, the 76ers are +130 to win the game and the total sits at 230.

It doesn’t get much closer regarding the action on this game’s spread. The Jazz have the edge in total number of tickets at 51%, yet the 76ers have the advantage in total dollars wagered at 53%.

William Hill bettors are more in sync on the moneyline and total. The 76ers have reeled in 56% of the total number of tickets and 93% of the total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets vs. the Jazz. Additionally, the over has generated 81% of the total number of tickets and 87% of the total dollars wagered.

The biggest spread of the evening belongs to a juicy affair between a superstar and his former team. James Harden makes his return to Houston as the Nets take on the Rockets at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on ESPN. The Rockets are in the midst of a 12-game losing streak, and are 10-point home underdogs to Brooklyn tonight with the total at 228.5. Houston is +400 to snap its skid, whereas Brooklyn is -500 on the moneyline.

There isn’t much confidence from William Hill bettors for the Rockets covering here. The Nets have collected 87% of the total number of tickets and 98% of the total dollars wagered. The moneyline splits are noteworthy too, as Brooklyn has attracted 90% of the total number of tickets but just 56% of the total dollars wagered. This over has gotten 70% of the total number of ticket and 51% of the total dollars wagered.

Later tonight, two of the NBA’s most lethal shooters clash in Portland. After opening as 2-point home underdogs to Steph Curry and the Warriors and rising to as high as +3, Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers are now listed at +1.5 at William Hill. Their total of 233 is the third-highest on the board tonight, with only Bulls at Pelicans (237) and Hornets at Timberwolves (234.5).

William Hill bettors are quite divided on this spread. The Trail Blazers have received 51% of the total number of tickets, yet the Warriors have snatched 58% of the total dollars wagered. For the total, the over has drawn 66% of the total number of tickets and 65% of the total dollars wagered.
