Whether you are betting on the NBA or just want to bet against the team, there are a number of different bets to choose from. You can bet on how many points the team will score, or you can bet on who will win. The best bets will have a combination of both, which will give you the best chance of winning.
Boston Celtics win three straight away from home
Despite their recent loss in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics remain the best team in the league and are strong odds to win the title this year. The Celtics lead the league in nearly every statistical category, including wins, points per game, offensive rating and three-point shooting percentage.
The team is also one of the most efficient offenses in the game, generating assists on 66.7 percent of its field goals. The Celtics are also one of the few teams in the league that generates more points at home than on the road, averaging more than 125 points per game at home.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Detroit Pistons
Earlier this season, the Los Angeles Lakers won a 128-121 game against the Detroit Pistons. That was their first win against the Pistons in seven games. They have won four of their last five against losing teams.
The Lakers are 4-9 SU and 2-10 ATS on the road. Their defense allows 116.3 points per game while scoring 114.5 points offensively. The Pistons are 6-11 SU and 2-10 ATS at home.
The Pistons are one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA. They are 29th in offensive rating and 27th in defensive rating. They rank in the bottom half of the league in rebounds, field goal percentage, 3-point shooting, long range shooting, mid-range shooting, and defensive rebounding.
Phoenix Suns vs Milwaukee Bucks
Almost a month after they faced off in the NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns will face each other in the first rematch of the series. Both teams made minor moves at the trade deadline.
Both are also in similar shape compared to other teams. Phoenix has had two healthy all-world backcourts, and has won 14 of its last 15 games. However, the Suns are still missing Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Those two will be key to the team’s chances, and the Bucks need to be sharp on defense to make up for their lack of star power.
This game features two teams that rank in the top four in the NBA for scoring, 3-point percentage, field goal percentage, and free throw attempts per game. They have been very good against the spread, too.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Utah Jazz vs Denver Nuggets
During the Week 13, 2021-22 NBA season, the Denver Nuggets will face the Cleveland Cavaliers. This matchup will take place at Ball Arena on Saturday, December 10, 2022. The two teams have combined for 16-4 records this year.
During the first nine games of the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers have a record of 8-1. However, the team has lost three of their last four games. The team will have to turn it up quickly to earn a playoff spot.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have the best net-rating in the NBA. They allow only 104 points per game during their eight-game winning streak. They are also 7-2 against the spread when favored by two points or more.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Cleveland Cavaliers
Whether you’re betting on the NBA or looking for the best NBA bets, you can’t go wrong with this matchup. Oklahoma City is an exciting young team that is on the rise. But they have to overcome the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Thunder average 117.9 points per game while allowing 117.9 points to their opponents. That’s more than double the points that the Cavaliers score. In addition, the Thunder are the second-worst scoring defense in the NBA.
While the Thunder are expected to make things easy on themselves, the Cavaliers are a much more balanced team. They are 18th in scoring offense, but rank 22nd in assists. They are also 16th in rebounding. This could be a game that features a lot of inside-out offense.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Detroit Pistons
Whether you are a long time fan of the NBA or are new to the game, you should know that the Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the best teams in the league. They are currently third in the Eastern Conference and stand as clear favorites in their matchup with the Detroit Pistons.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are known for their defense. They rank second in adjusted defensive efficiency and are tied for the most blocked shots per game. They are also the only team in the league to allow less than a point per possession.
In addition to their defense, the Cleveland Cavaliers have a pair of playmaking guards. Caris LeVert and Donovan Mitchell are both averaging more than five assists per game. These two players should give the Cavaliers an edge over the Pistons.
