Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – December 2nd Edition

Utah Jazz @ Philadelphia 76ers – Monday, December 2 2019 6:00 CT

The Philadelphia 76ers will play host to an unfamiliar face in the Utah Jazz. This will be a battle between some of the best big men in the league. For Utah it will be Rudy Gobert who won the 2019 defensive player of the year. He will have his hands full in dealing with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons who can put the stress on opposing players post games. Philly is coming off a three game win streak and have won seven of their last 10.

Utah has had a tough time stringing together wins as they are just 5-5 over their last 10 games. Philly will be playing with the advantage as they haven’t lost at home once this season. This could be a low scoring game and the 76ers should be the favorite.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Denver Nuggets – Tuesday, December 3 2019 8:00 CT

The top two teams in the western conference do battle in this one as the Los Angeles Lakers will travel to mile high to take on the Denver Nuggets. Fortunately the Nuggets have been able to build quite a home court advantage over the past few seasons and that should give them quite the boost in this critical game. The Lakers are coming off a loss in their last game but had won 10 straight games prior to the defeat.

Los Angeles is comfortable going on the road and winning as they have built the best road record in the NBA this season at 9-1. Anthony Davis and Nikola Jokic will be an interesting head to head matchup as they are two of the best big men in the entire league. The Lakers could be designated favorites as the road team and if they are you should look to put your money on a deep and talented Denver Nuggets team as your NBA Betting pick.

Miami Heat @ Toronto Raptors – Tuesday December 3 2019 6:30 CT

If at the start of the season you would have said that the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors would have the second and third best record in the east, you probably would have gotten some crazy looks coming at you. Nearly a third of the way through the season and here we are though. They have both been able to flourish thanks to the depth of each unit and two of the best scoring differentials in the league.

Toronto is red hot having won seven straight games and they have played well at their own arena as they are undefeated this season there. Miami is playing just as well though as they have won eight of their last ten. Look for Toronto to continue the run in this one, they should be your NBA Betting pick.

Clippers @ Bucks – Friday December 6 2019 7:30 CT

The Los Angeles Clippers will make their way to the Cream City in this game as the Milwaukee Bucks currently have the best record in the league at 17-3. The Bucks are coming into this game having won 11 straight games by double digits. Kawhi Leonard and Giannis antetokounmpo pose arguably the best matchup of players in the league head to head and last postseason provided the fireworks many expected.

The Clippers are only 3-5 on the road this season so a win might be a stretch but look for this game to be and exciting one. If both teams are able to keep this level of play that they are currently at then we might be looking at a possible Finals matchup come this June.
