IT'S another busy night of NBA action on Friday with the worst team in the league trying to snap their record losing streak.

The Brooklyn Nets have suffered 14 defeats in a row – and 16 straight at home where they've yet to taste victory in 2017 – and their latest shot at redemption comes at Denver Nuggets.

Brooklyn are 4-1 at Paddy Power for the win they crave while the Nuggets are 2-11 at Betfair for victory and 2-5 at Paddy Power to be leading at half-time and full-time.

At the Marseille Open tennis there's a heavy home contingent in the quarter-finals with Lucas Pouille, Richard Gasquet, Gilles Simon and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga all in the mix.

Other sporting highlights today include snooker Shootout plus rugby league and union so as usual feel free to add your tips and chat and Jordan will post his NBA picks below.

    After going back and forth for a while i am backing:

    Highlanders
    Reds

    Both to win @2.41

    Small stakes advised for these early matches as Gunner pointed out yesterday. Hopefully this adds to my pot for some evening bets. I’m going to be keeping a keen eye on the U20 matches; usually some gems there if you look hard enough.

    GL all

    Taking one for the team here and saying with two and a half minutes left to play in the third and Rockets up by 28. They aren’t blowing this.

    Rockets -3 @ 10/11 @ Betfred – 4.4 points **WIN**

    Well done gents.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Said it wasn’t just the Pelicans who did good business. Lou Williams with 22 points off the bench. Rockets taking a leaf out of the Warriors book from last season.

    Cycling: Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne 2017 (Sunday)

    Alexander Kristoff to win @ 6.00 with various

    With most of the big sprinters riding in the desert of Abu Dhabi I will take the number 2 of 2016 and 2015 to finally take his win in this race. Sagan is the other favourite, but I think he will be among the best at the race on Saturday. Kristoff can win from a small group or a bunch sprint and showed great form in Oman. I think he will be the fastest in both outcomes.

    Cycling: Abu Dhabi stage 2

    Match-ups:
    Bonifazio to beat Guardini
    Renshaw to beat De Bie
    Double @ 2.34 with WH

    Bonifazio was 3rd yesterday and should finish close today. Guardini didn’t sprint and it looks like his team went for their other sprinter Consonni, who came in 4th. Whoever gets the nod, Bonifazio should be faster.

    Renshaw v De Bie is about lead-outs. Both are the last man before the sprinter comes out. Renshaw is Cavendish leadout man for years and I think he will drop him off closer to the line than De Bie will do with Greipel.

    Rockets -3.5 @ 1.90 (Bet 365) – ✔

    Comfortable night for the Rockets, who hit 20 from behind the arc in a 30 point blow out win, Lou Williams making 7 three’s off the bench on his debut.

    Updated record

    Week – 1-0
    Season – 88-70

    Landers beaten and kept try-less which was surprising so couldn’t reach to the 20 point mark to down the double. Quick bet for the Reds game. Sharks more converted penalties 15/8. Hoping it’s a tight game. Risk is if the Reds get out to a lead or the Sharks get a few early tries. Small stakes for a bit of interest. Worth a punt though and will have a few in-play points total bets if the Reds fall behind. GL

    • gunner 5 years ago

      Phew I needed that. Tight game as expected but could have gone either way. Makes up for the first 2 bets. Posted my 4-fold for tomorrow and will have a few 6 Nations bets up later.

    Denver on b2b nights after their loss to the Cousinless Kings last night. At home to a Nets side who traded away Bogdanovic who was their second top points scorer during the first half of the season. Jeremy Lin is likely to return for Brooklyn but I can’t seem them beating Denver at home who have the altitude in their favour, plus the poor record for Brooklyn on the road.

    OKC did some nice business before the deadline and acquired Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott from the Bulls. They have a pretty good starting five when you look at them with Westbrook, Oladipo, Gibson and Adams the main four. The Lakers did well for their future, but not really what they needed right now. Any team who picked up Lou Williams was going to get better, and he showcased his shooting for the Rockets last night in their win over the Pelicans. Williams averaged 18.6 points per game for LA off the bench, and he was their leading scorer. When you look at their side now its clear they lack experience and will likely struggle for the rest of the season, but the future looks bright.

    Nuggets -4
    Thunder -4

    EVS @ Skybet – 5 points

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      As I’ve posted the Nuggets have shortened at Skybet and the double now pays 93/100.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Also worth a note, with Cousins out of Sacramento, Willie Cauley-Stein had a monster game with a career high 29 points and 10 rebounds. Will be worth a look at his prop lines for their game at home to Charlotte tomorrow night.

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      I like Thunder too, sounds like Kanter is coming back from injury too.

    Well done to the winners as thanks @raoul-duke softened the blow a bit!

      No prob mate ?

      Really unlucky on the Nuggets.

    Pro 12

    Edinburgh v Cardiff
    Cardiff +3
    2.00 @ bet365

    Really fancy Cardiff’s chances tonight at an inconsistent Edinburgh. They won here last time are in better form. With Cuthbert out on the wing with a point to prove Cardiff should have some attacking threat. Should be close so the +3 might come in handy.
