The luck wasn’t quite as great against the spread, on Wednesday night. The action quiets down quite a bit on Thursday night, there are still five games that surely bring plenty of money to be made in NBA betting circles.
We’ll need to keep in mind the teams that aren’t all that well rested, as the Pacers and Spurs both played last night, while the Bulls, Knicks, Suns, Pelicans and Warriors all played on Tuesday. The latter teams should be a little fresher, but this light slate could hold a lot of potential for fatigue, as well as inactives. Suffice to say, be sure to stay on high alert for last second lineup changes that could impact tonight’s NBA bets. Get all the latest Betting and Sport News updates on your social media outlets.

The Golden State Warriors have wrapped up a brutal stretch of the schedule that saw them play five road games in seven nights, but they did manage to go 4-1 SU in that span. Next up on the docket is a home date with the New York Knicks, where the Dubs opened as healthy 14.5-point home favorites with a total of 227.
The last game of the night probably will not be a toss-up, as gambling sites aren’t really giving Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks a chance. New York has actually looked pretty good as of late, as they’ve secured wins in 6 of their last 10 games and are a respectable 14-11 on the year.
While improved, New York still isn’t a heavy-hitter like the Warriors, and they could also be without star point guard, Derrick Rose.
With or without D-Rose, the Knicks are in a bad spot here. Not only are the Knickerbockers a weak 5-7 away from home, but they’re also facing a Warriors team that tends to take care of business (9-2) at home. On top of that, the Dubs are at full strength and don’t appear set to rest anyone. Golden State has also won four straight in this series, with the closest game being decided by – you guessed it – 14 points.
Given New York’s shaky defense, road woes and how talented the Warriors are, this looks like a great spot to favor the Warriors to cover a gaudy spread.
The Knicks are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games on the road against the Warriors.
The total has gone OVER in seven of the Warriors’ last nine games at home.
The total has gone OVER in six of the Knicks’ last eight games on the road.
If the Knicks shoot like they did in Tuesday’s 113-111 setback to the Phoenix
Suns, they’ll be in major trouble against the stacked Warriors. Carmelo Anthony went 3-for-15 from the floor in that game while Derrick Rose went 0-for-6 and managed two points in 10 minutes before leaving after experiencing back pain. With reduced juice and cash back, there are plenty of reasons to visit heritagesports.eu and make some money with NBA betting on Thursday Night.
