Moving season is very much here in the NBA, following a record-breaking All-Star game and each team will want to get back to the rigours of the regular programme. 

Over in the East, the well-placed Indiana Pacers take on the Detroit Pistons, whilst in the West, the Dallas Mavericks welcome the Phoenix Suns and Oklahoma City Thunder take on the LA Clippers in two monumental ties. 

Indiana Pacers vs Detroit Pistons Best Bet

23rd February – Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Indianapolis

Over 227.5 points & Indiana Pacers to win the match @ 1.91 (PlayUp)

The Indiana Pacers have been one of the most consistent sides in the East this season and they find themselves firmly in the playoff conversation with many punters and NBA betting sites. They will be eager to pick up a home win here against a Detroit Pistons side who have struggled all year but can occasionally upset the party. This, however, should be one-way traffic, with points flying in at both ends and the Pacers picking up a handsome home win.

Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns Best Bet

23rd February – American Airlines Center, Dallas

An epic encounter lies in wait over in the West, with two of the in-form sides in the NBA ready to battle it out. The Dallas Mavericks looked to have blown their playoff push, before winning their last 6 games and moving firmly into top 8 contention. They take on a Phoenix Suns side who have also had to overcome a serious wobble this season and who now sit 5th, looking to challenge the sides above them. There is nothing in this game on paper but with 6 wins on the spin and home advantage, the Mavs could just edge this one.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs LA Clippers Best Bet

23rd February – Paycom Center, Oklahoma

Oklahoma City Thunder win the match @ 2.05 (BlueBet)

Two of the key contenders for both the Western Conference title and the NBA Championship title with both punters and international betting sites are primed to meet here in Oklahoma. For the Thunder, sitting in 2nd place in the Western Conference table is an excellent return and they will want to keep the momentum ticking over in games such as this. The LA Clippers meanwhile sit 3rd, knowing full well that a win here would see them leapfrog the Thunder. This is very tough to call, and claims can be made for both sides but perhaps the Thunder could have enough in reserve to prevail.
