There are only four NBA games to look forward to on Thursday, December 15. That means almost every game will be featured to decide which teams we should bet on.

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: Phoenix Suns +1.5 (-106)

The Phoenix Suns will be heading to the Arena to take on the Los Angeles Clippers in a Western Conference matchup. Both teams are dealing with a bunch of injuries heading into this game and that makes it a lot more interesting.

These teams have played once back in October 23 where the Suns picked up a 112-95 road win, so they have proven to be the better team overall. Phoenix has covered the spread in four of the last five road games against Los Angeles so go for it to happen once again.

NBA Best Team Bet #2: Memphis Grizzlies -2 (-110)

The Memphis Grizzlies are defending their home court as they take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. Point guard Jrue Holiday (illness) will miss this game and that is a decent blow to the Bucks chances here as these are two of the best teams in the entire NBA this year.

There is a reason why the Grizzlies are one of the hottest teams in the sport as they are on a six-game winning streak entering play as well. Memphis has covered four of the previous five games against Milwaukee, so go with them to cover at home here as well.

NBA Best Team Bet #3: Miami Heat -4 (-108)

The Miami Heat will be on the road in this game as they take on the Houston Rockets in a non-conference matchup. The Rockets are one of the worst overall teams in the entire NBA while the Heat have some solid talent throughout their rotation.

Bam Adebayo has been one of the better players in the sport as he is averaging 23.7 points and 10.2 rebounds in his last 10 games. Miami has covered in five of their last six road games against Houston, so go with the Miami Heat to cover the spread as a road favorite.

The Heat are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against the Rockets so go with the Miami Heat to cover the spread here.
