Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- Feb. 18

It has been a week since the NBA has played a game that has counted in the standings due to the league’s annual All-Star break, but the betting action will quickly heat up at VietBet USA online casino with a pair big conference matchups on TNT’s Thursday night slate.

Starting in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, the 27-25 Chicago Bulls go on the road to face the 38-14 Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls limped into last week’s break with just two wins both straight-up and against the spread in their last nine games. Adding to Chicago’s recent woes is the loss of its top scorer Jimmy Butler until early March with a knee injury.

Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- Feb. 18

Cleveland continues to set the pace in the East with a SU 8-2 run in its last 10 games, although it is just 2-5 ATS in its last seven outings. The total has gone OVER in six of its last eight games. Kevin Love hurt his shoulder right before the break, but he remains probable for Thursday night. Chicago has been able to cover in four of its last five road games against the Cavaliers and the total has stayed UNDER in five of the last seven meetings in Cleveland.

The second game on TNT’s Thursday double-header pits San Antonio on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs will be making their third stop on their annual Rodeo Road Trip and they bring a SU six-game winning streak into the Staples Center. Betting on this team has been a different story with a 3-4 record ATS over its last seven games on VietBet’s Asian Bookies closing NBA betting line.

The Clippers have won seven of their last nine games SU, but they are also 3-4 ATS in their last seven outings. They have been tough to beat on their home court this season at 17-8 SU, but they have not been a solid bet with an 11-14 record ATS in those 25 home games. Head-to-head in this matchup, the road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and the total has gone OVER in four of the last five games played in Los Angeles.

Moving to Thursday’s college basketball schedule, the highest-ranked team in action is the No. 6 Maryland Terrapins and they will be on the road against Minnesota in this Big Ten matchup. Maryland is coming off a stunning 70-57 loss to Wisconsin this past Saturday as an 8.5-point home favorite on VietBet’s closing line to fall to 3-4 ATS in its last seven games. The Golden Gophers are still searching for their first SU win in the Big Ten this season and they are 6-7 ATS in those 13 games.
