There is a large slate of 11 NBA games to look forward to on Friday, December 2nd. There will be a lot of interesting matchups to dive into. We'll make sure that we find some winning wagers here.
We will dive into the nitty-gritty of the three different teams that bettors should be placing their tickets on and we will explain exactly why they should do so against the spread.
NBA Best Team Bet #1: Brooklyn Nets -1.5 (-110)
The Toronto Raptors head to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets in a divisional matchup. This is the third time this year these teams have met, and Brooklyn is 2-0 thus far. Both teams have some injuries with power forward Pascal Siakam, power forward Precious Achiuwa, point guard Ben Simmons, and small forward Yuta Watanabe all ruled out.
Brooklyn is leading the NBA with 7.3 blocks per game, despite struggling on the glass. However, Toronto is struggling with their shot from beyond the arc as they are 25th in the NBA, shooting 33.1 percent from deep. Take the Nets to cover a very small spread and continue to win games.
NBA Best Team Bet #2: Los Angeles Lakers +8.5 (-112)
The Los Angeles Lakers will be heading to the Fiserv Forum as they take on the Milwaukee Bucks in a non-conference matchup, which should be interesting. Power forward Anthony Davis and small forward LeBron James have been playing very well lately. The Lakers look like they are beginning to turn things around this season.
Milwaukee is an average offensive team as they are 16th in the league with 112.3 points per game thus far and are hoping that the Lakers do not have an answer for power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo in this game. This is a lot of points. Go with the Lakers to keep it close and cover the spread.
NBA Best Team Bet #3: Cleveland Cavaliers -10.5 (-106)
The Orlando Magic are struggling as they are on a six-game losing streak and are trying to snap that against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The major difference lately has been on the defensive side of the floor. Orlando has given up 122.3 points in their previous three games, while Cleveland is allowing 93 points in their last three games. Go with the Cavaliers to win by double-digits at home as they are the better team, even with the injuries.
