BetNow Online Sportsbook

Here at BetNow online sportsbook, there is always betting right now. You can always get a bet down on something. Sure, the days will be here soon when you can bet on March Madness, the brackets, and all of that. But, that’s still a few days away at this point. Indeed, we’re right at the point of the sports calendar where the conference championships of NCAA basketball will be occurring. But, until then, there will always be plenty of betting right here at our site. Today, we’d like to highlight some NBA games and more on the horizon. 

BetNow Online Sportsbook: Thursday NBA Games 

With only so many games left until the end of the regular season, the action really is heating up. The first game of Thursday night is a big one in the East, as the Chicago Bulls head to Atlanta to take on the Hawks. Both teams need this one for different reasons. The Bulls are only 1.5 games out of first place in the conference as well as half game ahead of the Sixers. 

By that same token, the Hawks are in 10th, fighting for their playoff lives. Yes, they’re a half game behind the Hornets but they’re also only a game ahead of the Wizards. So, both teams, if they want to make a move, have to do it now. We have the Bulls as a 4.5 point favorite on the road. How do you see it going? 

Potential Playoff Matchups

That’s what you’ll see throughout the NBA action on Thursday. A great example of this, and a potential first round series: the Heat head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. Yes, the Nets made the big move, but they may not have Simmons just yet. By that same token, the Heat are rolling, still first place in the conference. Both teams need this one for different reasons as it were. We have the Heat, though, only as a three point favorite on the road. 

Another hot potential playoff matchup (that you could see as early as the first round) is in the other conference. The Warriors head south to Big D to take on the Mavs. The Golden State Warriors, as of this writing, are in 2nd in the conference while the Mavs are in fifth. So, this is very much two teams fighting for higher seeds in the playoffs. We have the Dubs as a 2.5 favorite on the road against a very game Mavs team. 

Rivalry Games 

There are rivalry games and then there are rivalry games between two teams that play in the same building. Yes, the Lakers “travel” to play the Clippers on Thursday. These are two teams that haven’t had the season go as they would like, but do have time to turn things around. We have the Clips as a 2.5 point favorite “at home” against the Lakers. How do you see this game going? 

Is this the one where the Lakers finally get it together and go on the run that so many believe they will? Or, is this a game where the Clippers lay claim to taking over the city and, by extension, the mantle of a team that really can go on a run in the Western Conference? 

BetNow Online Sportsbook: More Than Just NBA 

Sure, this blog covers a lot of the NBA games that you can bet on this Thursday, but there’s so much more to bet on than that. For example, we’ve got a full slate of NCAA men’s basketball games, too. You can bet on all of the winners for those, preparing you for the tournaments to come. 

If the hardwood isn’t your thing, you can bet on the NHL as well. The ice action is also heating up, as the trade deadline nears and, by extension, the end of the regular season. For all of the best betting, come to our site any time.
