NBA Wednesday multi betting – free basketball specials & free tips

nba multi of the day

Pressure, intensity, energy and quality will all begin to rise as the transition into the second half of the NBA season begins.

With 82 matches scheduled to be played by all teams, the 41 mark has already been hit by some, with more passing it as each day progresses.

With NBA All Star Weekend also in the near future, some players have stepped up their game in an attempt to earn more votes from their coaches and peers.

This NBA Wednesday will be telling for many of the franchises as they can enter the second half of the season with a winning streak under their belt.

One match that is sure to attract plenty of attention will be the Pacers in Cleveland.

Victor Oladipo led his Pacers to victory against the Bulls in an overtime shootout that tested the third seeded Indiana.

The Cavaliers will challenge the Pacers with their young core and quick offence.

Plenty of Aussies will be tuning in to see Ben Simmons take on the Wizards in Philadelphia. Simmons will need to start standing up as he has had very little movement in the All Star fan votes, even though he is having a terrific season, posting two triple doubles in the last five matches.

The Nuggets will be coming off a back-to-back match against the Rockets when they take on the Miami Heat, which is the hottest ticket out of the eight scheduled matches.

Nikola Jokic is putting his hand up for MVP after consistently performing at an incredible pace for a centre, recently being named the player of the week after averaging 28-points, 13-rebounds and the outstanding 9-assists, which is unprecedented for a seven footer.

When the Timberwolves travel to Oklahoma to battle the Thunder, it could make for an interesting contest.

Derrick Rose is still out with a sprained ankle, but the combination of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins will cause Thunder head coach Billy Donovan some issues.

The final match of the day will be between the 23 – 6 Clippers and the 19 – 20 Hornets.

Kemba Walker and the Hornets will look to even out their ledger with a win, whilst the Clippers can smell the third seed in the west, as they only trail the Thunder by two wins.

Here’s a multi that has been prepared with care to add some spice to this week’s NBA Wednesday action.

NBA Wednesday January 9th Multi Analysis

Victor Oladipo and the Pacers enter the match as hot favourites and with good reason.

The Cavaliers have not posted a win since December 18th and have a plethora of injuries that have hindered them each day, including Kevin Love, Tristian Thompson and more recently Rodney Hood with an Achilles.

Joel Embiid is one of the best centres in the league due to his size and shooting capabilities.

The Wizards starting centre is a young rookie Thomas Bryant, who is still learning the game defensively.

Expect Embiid and Simmons to simply out-body the wizards on the inside and JJ Redick to knock down shoots on the outside with his ability to find space where others couldn’t.

Although Denver enter the match as underdogs, the odds could change very quickly, which is why this leg is important for the value.

At the time of writing Denver still haven’t faced the Rockets, which leaves room for injury and poor form, but considering they have won their last five matches, we expect them to beat on only the Rockets, but the Heat too.

Nikola Jokic will simply need to play fundamental basketball against the emotional Whiteside and the youthful Adebayo, both of which cannot match Jokic for IQ.

After a poor shooting night against the Wizards, the Thunder will be bouncing back against the Timberwolves with a victory.

Boasting a 13 – 5 home record, the Thunder know how to get the job done in front of their fans, which is highly likely this Wednesday as the Minnesota away record is a shocking 5 – 15.

The final leg of the multi is one that will have our attention.

According to the ESPN power index, the Clippers are a 67% chance to win the match, which is backed up by their home court advantage and better win-loss record.

The Clippers simply need to quell the incredible Kemba Walker, who is coming off a match where he scored 18-points in the final four minutes to secure the come-from-behind victory.

Lou Williams is a good matchup for Walker as he has the experience to eliminate space and play excellent, close-checking defence.
