Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – November 4th Edition

Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets

  • When: Tuesday November 5th
  • Where: Pepsi Center, Denver Colorado

This matchup will see the high scoring Heat versus this defensive minded Denver squad in what should be an exciting matchup of two teams playing excellent basketball.

The red hot Heat have gotten off to a 5-1 start to the season and have been one of the best surprises of the year.  Miami has been able to get impressive contributions from Rookie Tyler Herro and undrafted Free Agent Kendrick Nunn. Jimmy Butler is taking a more facilitator role as he is averaging a career high 6.5 assists per game. Their willingness to spread the ball around and play tight defense has allowed Miami to post the best point differential in the NBA winning by more than 11 points a game.

Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets will lean on one of the toughest home court advantages in the NBA. Jokic will have his hands full with a much improved Bam Adebayo. Former lottery pick Michael Porter Jr.  made his debut in the previous game and should push for more minutes as he is able to shake the rust from his first bit of action in nearly two years.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Utah Jazz

  • When: Wednesday November 6th
  • Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City Utah

We are greeted with a potential Finals preview as two of the best teams square off in Utah. Although,individual matchups will be the headline going into this game. Guards Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell will go head to head after their highly competitive rookie of the year race just a few years ago. Joel Embiid and Rudy Gobert will do battle down low as two of the best defensive bigs in basketball.

Points will be at a premium in this one as both Philly and Utah struggle to score the ball. Mike Conley was thought of as the second option offensively, but has shot a putrid 33% from the field to start the year. It will not get any easier for Conley, as both teams boast a top five defensive rating. The Sixers and the Jazz have both built their team on guys who play unselfish at one end and can force you into tough, contested shots on the other. Do not expect to take the over in this one as a result.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Los Angeles Clippers

  • When: Wednesday November 6th
  • Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles California

Giannis Antetokoumpo will face off against Kawhi Leonard for the first time in a clippers uniform. As arguably the two top players in the league it is easy to see what makes this a marquee matchup. Each team is extremely well-coached also as they finished in the top three of Coach of the Year voting. Milwaukee will want to push the pace and get Giannis going early.

The Clippers ability to bring a fresh Lou Williams off the bench could prove troublesome for a Bucks team that lacks in bench depth. Los Angeles is off to a scorching hot shooting season as they lead the league in field goal percentage, knocking down 49.6% of their shots.

No one has been able to slow Milwaukee though as they are averaging 119 points per game. Don’t be shocked if we are watching Bucks vs. Clippers in June as these are two of the premier teams.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trailblazers

  • When: Friday November 8th
  • Where: Moda Center, Portland Oregon

Good guard play is responsible for some of the best highlights. It just so happens that this matchup features two of the most dynamic players at their position squaring off. Kyrie Irving is playing in front of his hometown Nets and has played at another level since arriving in Brooklyn. His 30.5-6.5-7.5 stat line shows he is getting the job done in every facet.

On the other side we have Damian Lillard who is scoring with ease while putting up 29.8 ppg. The Nets and Trailblazers whole rosters can shoot the deep ball as these teams are knocking down the most in the league. Hassan Whiteside has found new life in Portland after scoring 12 points a game and securing 12 rebounds.

This will be a high scoring shootout with two of the most talented ball handlers alive. Bring the popcorn and expect a show to be put on by both sides.

Week 3 of the NBA season could see some of the most dynamic matchups we have seen yet. With important games and tough head to head competition look for the step of separation the best teams will make.
