We’re over a fourth of the way through the NBA season, and we’re starting to get some separation between the top teams and the teams that may want to start planning for the upcoming NBA Draft. While we’ve seen some surprise teams at or near the top of the standings in each conference, a lot of the expected favorites are also near the top.
In looking at this week’s schedule, we’ve found a couple of games that have caught our eye. Each game involves one of the league’s top teams. Let’s take a brief look at each one of those games, as we think that they’ll be good games to place some money on against the NBA odds, and hopefully, you can walk away with a little extra cash in your pocket.
Top Must Bet NBA Games From Dec. 6th to 7th
Monday, December 6 – Orlando Magic @ Golden State Warriors
At 19-4, the Golden State Warriors are one of, if not the best team in the NBA at this time. While they are coming off of a loss, it’s the perfect time to play one of the worst teams in the league, the Orlando Magic. With a 5-19 overall record and a 3-11 record away from home, things don’t look good for Orlando, who has to make the cross-country trek to California to play Steph Curry and the Warriors.
Not only do the Warriors have one of the top offenses in the league, they have also improved tremendously on the defensive end of the floor. Orlando is poor on both sides of the floor, as they are a young, rebuilding squad.
While we know that this point spread could be rather large, it’s hard to bet against the Warriors in this one. They’re playing great basketball right now, and we know that the Orlando Magic won’t have an answer for Steph Curry.
Tuesday, December 7 – Brooklyn Nets @ Dallas Mavericks
Everyone will be looking forward to the Luka Doncic vs Kevin Durant matchup. The Nets are sitting atop the Eastern Conference with a 16-7 record. Believe it or not, the Nets have been better on the road than they’ve been at home, as they’re 8-2 away from the Barclays Center.
The Mavericks will enter this one with an 11-11 record, but they’ve been slumping as of late, going 3-7 in their last 10. While Dallas has been playing excellent defense this season, they’ve been lacking on the offensive side of the floor. Other than Doncic, they’ve been looking for more consistent scoring from some of their other players.
It’s hard to believe that the Nets are on top of the East without Kyrie Irving. While many feared that not having Irving would hurt the Nets, it hasn’t shown. As a matter of fact, not having Irving has helped the Nets on the defensive side of the ball, as they’re a much better defensive team without him.
This one should be a fun one to watch, as two of the top players in the league will be looking to put on a show. The Nets will be favored, but we’ll be curious to see by how much.
