Another Saturday, another huge slate of NBA action to sink our teeth into for a quality weekend basketball multi.
With 10 games scheduled to start from 11.30am AEDT, there’s ample opportunity to pick the eyeballs out of a multi and put together real value.
We start with Utah traveling to Cleveland in what should be a walk in the park for a gritty and increasingly-solid Jazz outfit.
We then move on to Miami taking on Washington, who has been horribly hobbled by the season-ending injury to John Wall.
The Pacers will start as a hot favourite against the young and hapless Chicago Bulls and the Lakers will play host to a New York franchise that has been terrible for near-on a decade.
The big game to finish the day is between the OKC and Portland in a quality Western Conference brawl.
Saturday, January 5 NBA multi tips:
Games start from 11.30am AEDT
Utah to beat the Cavs – $1.26
Miami to beat the Wizards – $1.34
Pacers to beat the Bulls – $1.38
OKC to beat Portland – $1.97
Lakers to beat Knicks – $1.24
Saturday NBA multi analysis
We’re kicking things off with picking Utah to do the job for us over the Cavs in what is the shortest odds in this bet at $1.26.
Miami beating the Wizards ($1.34) and the Pacers beating the Bulls ($1.38) would take extraordinary upsets to ruin us and even without Lebron James, the Lakers should get the job done over the Knicks.
The big leg of the multi is picking OKC over Portland. It’ll be a battle of Westbrook vs. Lillard as two of the best teams in the NBA got at it.
We’re picking OKC to get the job done away from home, purely based on Steve Adams ability to shut down Portland big man Jusuf Nurkic, who has fuelled the Trailblazer’s recent success. If the offence of Portland is left to Lillard to shoulder, the form of Lillard and Paul George could prevail.
