As the dust settles on the NBA All-Star game, the regularity of the season returns and there are some huge contests in prospect this week, all of which are intriguing punters and NBA betting apps alike. 

Over in the East, the Cleveland Cavaliers take on Orlando Magic, with the Toronto Raptors welcoming the Brooklyn Nets and the Philadelphia76ers hosting the new York Knicks, in what has the potential to be a classic.

Having won 9 of their last 10 games, confidence in the Cleveland Cavaliers camp is sky high and they will be looking to continue their good form against Orlando Magic. The Cavs are sitting pretty in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference table, and they will feel that they can kick on and challenge the Boston Celtics this term. Meanwhile, Orlando Magic are ticking along nicely too and firmly in the playoff hunt, but this is a tall order, and the Cavaliers should prevail in front of their home fans.

Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets Best Bet

Two teams that have work to do in order to crack the playoff picture face off in Canada, as the Raptors welcome the Brooklyn Nets to town. The Raptors have underwhelmed this season and are now seen as outsiders with many NBA betting apps to crack the playoffs but they still have time on their side and good players within their ranks. A similar story can be told for the Brooklyn Nets, who sit 11th in the Eastern Conference, and they too really need to buck their ideas up to crack the top 8. This should be a good one, with the Nets most likely to pick up an important win.

Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Best Bet

23rd February – Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia

Philadelphia 76ers to win the match @ 1.91 (BlueBet)

Another pair of sides sat next to each other in the Eastern Conference table square off, as the Philadelphia 76ers welcome the New York Knicks. A recent wobble has seen the 76ers fall off the pace a little in the East but they remain a side tracked by both domestic and international betting sites and one firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot. The New York Knicks meanwhile have leapfrogged the 76ers in recent weeks and they will be desperate to prove their worth here and pick up a big win on the road. However, the 76ers won’t roll over that easily and they should come out on top in a highly entertaining encounter at the Wells Fargo Center.
