The regular season is now a few weeks old. Yes, games have been played, and trends are establishing themselves. Now, fans get to watch a two-win team on the “road” and a Battle of New York. VegasBetting asks. Is it a Brooklyn and Clippers night?

Brooklyn has had one crazy season. There was a crazy intensity and arguably buzz even in training camp for a team that got swept by the Boston Celtics. The only problem was this became all about the wrong kind of media attention. From there, the Nets and the losses piled up. Then, Steve Nash was sacrificed to the basketball gods. So, is taking Brooklyn a good idea for the NBA Wednesday Night Bets this night?
Honestly, even the interim coach Jacques Vaughn is unsure of what to make of this team. There is the feeling of coming so close and yet being so far. Brooklyn, they have performed much better under Vaughn. On Monday night, the Nets nearly pulled off an upset of Dallas on the road. The Mavericks were one of the Western Conference Finalists before bowing out to the eventual champion, Golden State Warriors.
The chatter about the Nets being better off without Kyrie Irving keeps growing. Whether that is true or not is up for some debate. However, the small sample size introduces the theory as being plausible. The New York Knicks are hardly better at 5-5 and have shown a penchant for blowing leads. Brooklyn is .500 with Vaughn and again are much more competitive.
Therefore, NBA Wednesday Night Bets focuses on this first question. How do we bet on the Nets? Honestly, that -140 moneyline is a number to bet cautiously. The fun approach and way to increase bankroll may be to go for the under if it stays around 222.5 points. That is a solid number for bettors. Brooklyn, at a low moneyline features a safer bet. Take Brooklyn and the moneyline!
What about a few more NBA Wednesday night bets in Brooklyn? Think about how these teams have played in stark contrast to each other. There are some alternate lines to consider for this night that one might not expect. Is it risky to play with the overs and unders here? Absolutely. Can it help find value? Also, that can be a yes too.
Jacques Vaughn has the team playing better defense, at the least. Whether that is because Kyrie Irving is out of the lineup matters little. Brooklyn has allowed a mere 96 points a game over their previous four contests. That is considerable progress from the 125+ points yielded in four of the first seven outings. Yes, the Nets are a work in progress in the truest sense. However, Vaughn has a better pulse on this team.
Granted, every team in the Eastern Conference is thankful the Nets are down in the standings right now. Again, the hope for teams is that they can get Kevin Durant off his game. The Brooklyn Net has been nothing but professional, and all of the drama has overshadowed his 31 points per game. If Durant is 100%, look to his scoring prop against the Knicks.
Finally, the one number betting pundits are interested in is the following. While Bovada and BetOnline have stayed mostly at 222.5 or 223.5 with this game, a few other sites have been contemplating inching over higher. The possibility of seeing a 224 or 225 would cause one to move down to around 220.5 or 221.5. Consequently, the under is another bet at 220.5 for the NBA Wednesday Night Bets.
The NBA, Wednesday Night Bets, welcomes the “Battle Of Los Angeles” as the Clippers clash against the Lakers. Those pesky Clippers have value tonight, as they are the team playing more together now. Furthermore, with trade rumors running wild around the 2-8 Lakers, it has become much harder for the LeBron James-led squad to keep focus.
So, the Clippers get a further break by being an underdog due to the urgency at hand for the Lakers. That plays into a nice situation plus money. Even with Kawhi Leonard out for the game, the Clippers and Tyronn Lue have this team playing better defense than expected. Their offense is still a work in progress, ranking dead last in the NBA at less than 104 points per game.
Yes, part of the Clippers’ offensive woes is because they have to manage Leonard off the injury and surgery from last season. Again, with the Lakers showing that they are a team that trips over itself often, the Clippers at least have more structure. Plus, the Lakers have yielded 110 or more points in seven straight contests.
For the NBA Wednesday Night Bets, consider the +150 moneyline bet for the Los Angeles Clippers, and do not forget the team over if it becomes available again.
