The Philadelphia 76ers once again highlighted their title credentials, with a 113-106 win over Eastern Conference rivals the Miami Heat on Monday night.
Despite being without their two main men, Joel Embiid and James Harden, the 76ers still had enough to see off the Eastern leaders and are now 15/2 to win the Championship.
Two teams looking to get their seasons back on track also collected big wins on Monday evening, with victories for both the Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets.
Chicago beat the Toronto Raptors 113-99 at the United Center, with DeMar DeRozen and Zach LaVine both scoring 26 points. The Bulls are back in action overnight (00:00), with Billy Donovan’s men 9/4 to beat the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Nets, meanwhile, made it back-to-back home wins with a 114-106 win over the Utah Jazz, with Kevin Durant top scorer with 37 points.
Golden State Warriors have the perfect chance to end a losing run in the early hours of Wednesday morning, when they face the bottom team in the East – the Orlando Magic (23:00).
NBA Betting Odds
GSW have lost their last two – against Boston and San Antonio – and are now facing a spell without Steph Curry due to injury. They should have enough to see off the Magic though, with the Warriors 3/10 to claim the victory and Orlando available at 5/2.
Two Western Conference rivals also meet in the early hours, with the Los Angeles Clippers at the Denver Nuggets (02:00).
The Nuggets are 6.5 games ahead of their opponents in the standings and Denver have also had the better of the exchanges this season, winning two of their previous three meetings.
Denver are 4/11 favourites to win on their home court while the Clippers, who have lost their last three games, are available at 11/5.
