Home » NBA Thursday preview

After yesterday’s seven games, the NBA continues tonight with another five matchups. Among the attractions in tonight’s slate, we have the Denver Nuggets and the Milwaukee Bucks, both leaders in their conferences, playing and trying to get a better advantage on top. It’s time for the NBA Thursday preview.

Denver Nuggets (46-23) @ Detroit Pistons (16-54) – 7:00 PM

Starting off our NBA Thursday preview we have the Denver Nuggets, leaders of the West, visiting the Pistons, last place in the East. Although the difference between those teams is colossal, the Nuggets lost their four games while the Pistons had a recent win. But it doesn’t matter for the bookies and the Nuggets are favourites by 14 points.

  • Spread: DEN Nuggets -14/DET Pistons +14
  • Over/under: 228.5 points
  • Pick: DET Pistons +14.0 and over 228.5

Sacramento Kings (41-27) @ Brooklyn Nets (39-30) – 7:30 PM

The second great game of the night is between West’s #2 Kings and East’s #6 Nets, in Brooklyn. Coming from a victory yesterday and playing on the road, the Kings want to win to keep chasing the Nuggets on the top of the table. The Nets want to clinch a playoff spot ASAP and also need the W. The favourites tonight are the Nets by 2.5 points.

  • Spread: SAC Kings +2.5/BKN Nets -2.5
  • Over/under: 238 points
  • Pick: SAC Kings to win and under 238.0

Indiana Pacers (31-38) @ Milwaukee Bucks (50-19) – 8:00 PM

Wrapping up our preview we have the Milwaukee Bucks, East #1, hosting the Indiana Pacers, who are still fighting for a spot in the play-in tournament. The Bucks are coming from two wins and the Pacers from a loss, so the favourites are obviously the home team, by 13.5 points.

  • Over/under: 238 points
  • Pick: MIL Bucks -13.5 and over 238.0
