2020-21 NBA Betting Odds for Thursday – May 13th, 2021

 

Basketball - Tournament

Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks – The Wizards have been enjoying a decently impressive run for the second half of the season, and another win over the Hawks would only add to their track record. They could not secure the victory on Tuesday, ending the game with a one-point deficit for the win. Substituting for absentee Bradley Beal, Russell Westbrook stepped in quite nicely with 21 assists for the duration of the game. Beal will not be present for this game, but Washington’s great performance signals a confidence boost for the team regardless.

On the other hand, Atlanta seemed to lack a solid plan for the first meeting, but a better defensive strategy is expected to be seen on Thursday’s game. The Hawks have stayed prevalent over the Wizards throughout two games this season, and the Thursday game is forecasted to be no different. However, they are only ahead of half a game over Heat, so the home side’s value seems to be more safely marketable for betters.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Dallas Mavericks – The Pelicans have a slight glimmer of hope for entering the play-in tournament, and a win over the Dallas Mavericks is necessary. Following their loss against Memphis in a 110-115 score on Tuesday, the Pelicans have an even more uphill battle in their match against the Mavericks due to not having two of its best members in play.

Luka Doncic will pose a considerable threat against the Pelicans, especially since their best scorer Lonzo Ball isn’t nearly as reliable of a player. Dallas has enjoyed four straight wins and has put them in a favorable position in the Western Conference. Doncic is poised to be the favorite for the MVP awardee averaging at 28.2 points per game. Unfortunately, the Pelicans’ fans do not have a good time to look forward to as the home side Mavericks are expected to capture the win with ease.

Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers – The Los Angeles Lakers have been facing a slump after being unable to secure the win in three of their four matches, but a victory of 123-110 over the Suns may be the boost that they need. Anthony Davis was the foundation of said win, and he is slated to be leading the team in their matches for the rest of the season.

The Rockets have also been on a terrible streak, sporting a six-game loss throughout the season so the Lakers fans could expect another win. Houston has been primarily playing for a higher draft pick, so their focus on winning is not prioritized. The Lakers should still be able to acquire a relatively easy win, with or without Lebron James. The betting line should be expected to fall on the 8.5 point range, which frees the Lakers from any worry.
