O/U Betting Picks for the Best NBA Week 12 Matches

2022-2023 NBA Season Week 12

  • When: Monday, Jan. 2 – Sunday, Jan. 8

Washington Wizards at Milwaukee Bucks | Tuesday, Jan. 3

Overall, the under is 19-17 in Washington games. The most recent trend suggests an under matchup. Washington has gone under in 7-of-3, including going under in their last two.

Milwaukee has an 18-18 total record. The .500 over/under record suggests oddsmakers know exactly what total to set on Bucks’ games. Washington will push the pace, but Milwaukee won’t get caught in a track meet. Under is the play.  

NBA O/U Pick: Under  

Brooklyn Nets at Chicago Bulls | Wednesday, Jan. 4

In the Nets’ 26 games so far this season, over is 16 and under is 20. The total has gone under in 3 of Brooklyn’s last 4 games.

Chicago has gone 17-18 over to the under in their games. The Bulls rank thirty-ninth in three-point percentage allowed. So although the last head-to-head went under, this one shouldn’t. The Nets score enough for the over to hit.  

NBA O/U Pick: Over

Boston Celtics at Dallas Mavericks | Thursday, Jan. 5

Boston has the ability to play any style of basketball required for the victory. The Celtics lead the league in points per game. 

But the total record is 19-17 over/under, which means Boston games don’t always go over the total. However, Dallas has a 22-15 over/under record. Both teams will score. Also, it’s almost impossible not to get caught up in an up and down game when you face Luka Doncic and his mates. Over is the play. 

NBA O/U Pick: Over  

Miami Heat at Phoenix Suns | Friday, Jan. 6

19 Miami Heat games have gone over and 18 have gone under. The Phoenix Suns have played in 1 more under game than  over.

Devin Booker won’t play, which means Phoenix figures to slow things down and try and dump the ball into DeAndre Ayton on most possessions. If that happens, this should go under. 

NBA O/U Pick: Under  

Orlando Magic at Golden State Warriors | Saturday, Jan. 7

Magic games have gone 19-18 over/under. Warriors games are 20-15 over under. But before dumping on the over, it’s important to note that Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins won’t play.

There’s also the chance Kyle Thompson sits this one out because the game is against Orlando, an Eastern Conference team. Finally, the Magic rank twenty-seventh in points per game. Under looks solid. 

NBA O/U Pick: Under  

Atlanta Hawks at L.A. Clippers | Sunday, Jan. 8

Atlanta games have gone over 21 times and under 15. Clippers games have gone over 16 times and under 22 times.

But in the Clippers’ last 6 games, over rules. The over is 5-1 in those last 6 games. The trend figure to hold when Trae Young and his mates head to Hollywood. 

NBA O/U Pick: Over
