After some NBA teams got off to a hot start, they seem to be cooling off. We’ll check in on some of this week’s top NBA Betting games for you to wager on.

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

Monday, November 19

Denver Nuggets @ Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks started the season 7-0, but have since gone 4-4. Denver is currently sitting at 10-6, and have lost 5 of their last 6.

On November 11th in Denver, the Bucks outlasted the Nuggets 121-114. Brook Lopez hit 8 3 pointers for the Bucks that night.

Denver is led by do-everything center Nikola Jokic. He currently leads the team in points rebounds and assists. Milwaukee is led by league MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.

This should be a high scoring affair with the slight edge going to the home team. Denver is coming off of a tough stretch of games, and Milwaukee seemed to regain some momentum in their second-half demolition of the Bulls last week.

Wednesday, November 21

New Orleans Pelicans @ Philadelphia 76ers

Last week, the Sixers made waves throughout the league when they traded for Jimmy Butler. It didn’t take lake for Butler to make his presence known, as he hit the game-winner in overtime against the Hornets on Saturday night.

Not to be overshadowed by the Butler acquisition, Joel Embiid has put up monster numbers this season. He is averaging 27.7 points per game, along with 12.7 rebounds per game.

He’ll have some strong competition on Wednesday night, as Anthony Davis comes to the City of Brotherly Love. Davis’s stats are almost identical to Embiid’s, as he’s averaging 27.5 points and 12.7 rebounds per game.

Embiid versus Davis will be an entertaining matchup. Defensively, Philadelphia will have a hard time matching up with Nikola Mirotic and Julius Randle.

Can Butler and the Philadelphia backcourt outlast the high scoring frontcourt of the Pelicans?

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Golden State Warriors

After a slow start to the season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have come alive as of late. The return of Russell Westbrook has helped the Thunder.

The Thunder looks like a good NBA Betting Pick for this week.

Trending in the other direction are the Golden State Warriors. After the injury to Steph Curry, the drama between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, and the Green suspension, the Warriors have struggled.

Whenever Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant get together, there always seems to be a little more riding on the game. OKC gave Golden State all that they could handle on opening night without Westbrook. Now that they’re playing well, and Golden State is far from full strength, the Thunder could walk into Oracle and steal a victory from the defending champs.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Cleveland Cavaliers

LeBron James brings his Los Angeles Lakers to Cleveland, where he has made two stops and won a couple titles. The Lakers have been better as of late, and Cleveland is still one of the worst teams in the league. Look for LeBron to have a lot on his mind, and may not play to his great ability, but the Lakers should have absolutely no problems winning this game. Take the Lakers on the road at the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Have a great week and enjoy the NBA Betting action!
