There is a decent-sized slate of seven NBA games to look forward to on Saturday, December 3. 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: Los Angeles Clippers -1.5 (-112)

The ability to be a force on the defensive end of the floor will definitely be the difference as the Clippers are fourth in the NBA with a 109.3 adjusted defensive rating, according to KenPom, while the Kings are all the way down in 24th with a 114.6 defensive rating thus far.

Looking at the defensive side of the court as of late, Sacramento are allowing 118.3 points in their previous four games while Los Angeles is giving up 112.3 points in their last three games. The Clippers have a solid roster, and even with injuries, they should be the better team so go with them to cover the spread.

NBA Best Team Bet #2: Milwaukee Bucks -6 (-114)

The Milwaukee Bucks have been a far and away better team throughout the regular season and should show just that here. When looking at the adjusted net rating throughout the season, Milwaukee is fifth in the sport with a +3.3 rating, according to DunksandThrees, while Charlotte is 28th with a -5.9 net rating.

Giannis Antetokounmpo should be able to dominate this game as the Hornets defense has been dismal and does not have the manpower to stop him. All in all, go with the Milwaukee Bucks to cover the spread on the road.

NBA Best Team Bet #3: Golden State Warriors -9.5 (-110)

There is a reason why the Houston Rockets are 2-11 on the road this season, while the Golden State Warriors are 9-1 inside the Chase Center thus far. According to DunksandThrees, there is a huge difference between these teams with their adjusted net ratings as the Warriors are 15th in the sport with a +0.6 rfar,ng so far while the Rockets are 26th with a -5.2 rating up to this point.

The ability to shoot the three-ball is critical to offensive success as Golden State is sixth in the NBA at 37.6 percent from deep, while Houston is 16th in the sport at 35.1 percent from distance. Go with the Golden State Warriors to cover the spread at home.
