Tipbet’s sports betting section of their website is plentiful with a huge range of different odds markets to choose from. As well as all major events in football and tennis – including the underway Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of 2018 – basketball is excellently covered.

Each competition is broken down into its own section by country, with USA, international, Germany, Turkey, Spain, and Brazil among the most popular. The NBA is arguably the most well-known basketball brand in the world, and at Tipbet this week there are top games to pick from.

Orlando Magic are bottom of both the Eastern Conference and Southeast Division, and they host the Minnesota Timberwolves, who are third in the Western Conference. Clearly the home team are in desperate need of a win to end their weak run of form. The Magic have lost their last seven and are looking increasingly unlikely to make the play-offs. Last weekend’s 125-119 defeat to the Washington Wizards was close, however.

The Timberwolves are strong favourites with Tipbet – they can be backed at 1.25 – and in contrast they have won their past five NBA fixtures, including Monday against play-off hopefuls Portland Trail Blazers.

As well as individual matches, punters that prefer to look further ahead can choose season bets. This market is on which team will ultimately be named 2017/18 NBA champions. Currently the favourites are the Golden State Warriors (1.55). Not only are they top of the Western Conference, but they also have the experience of being the reigning champions.

The closest odds for Wednesday’s games in the NBA can be found with the New Orleans Pelicans, third in the Southwest Division, who are 2.50 to come away from the Boston Celtics with a win. The hosts are at 1.50 and top the Eastern Conference.
