Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week – November 19th Edition

Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Clippers – Wednesday November 20

The Clippers are playing some disappointing basketball but will hopefully see their two best players on the court at the same time for the first time all year. Paul George will return with Kawhi Leonard as the 7-5 Clippers host the 10-2 Celtics. Both of these teams are some of the most unselfish in the league as both rank in the top five in assists per game.

Boston just saw their 10 game winning streak come to an end after a tough miss at the buzzer at the hands of the Kings.

There are reasons to be worried, but also reasons to think that many of their early weaknesses will be covered up by the starpower present when PG and Kawhi share the court. Boston will look to put up a fight but expect LA to be the favorite here.

Portland Trailblazers vs. Milwaukee Bucks – Thursday November 21st

The Bucks have picked up where they left off last season as they are 9-3 on the new year. Giannis is continuing his ascent as he is pulling almost 15 rebounds a game along with his 28.4 points. Portland also has their star power as Damian Lillard could go off and match Giannis at any moment.

The Blazers also have seen major contributions from Anfernee Simons and CJ Mccollum this year. The two are second and third on the team in usage rate and points responsible for respectively. Portland has not seen that success translate to the win column yet as they are a disappointing 5-8 so far.

This game will be too much for the Blazers as the Bucks are riding a 3 game win streak and have yet to lose at home this year.

Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers – Saturday, November 23rd

The Miami Heat have been one of the most pleasant surprises this year as they are responsible for the second best record in the East at 9-3. This is due to players like Kendrick Nunn, Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo, and their star Jimmy Butler playing both sides of the court to their best ability. They just recently had three players nominated for player of the week. While none of them won it is still a remarkable feat.

Philly was supposed to be the top tier of the Eastern Conference but has seen poor shooting sink their record to a measly 8-5. Joel Embiid and Al Horford’s time on the court together is starting to round into shape as the sixers are figuring out the floor spacing necessary for them to succeed.

Ben Simmons must continue to share the ball in order for this team to take the next step. Look for the Heat to possibly steal a road game from the tough 76ers squad.
