30 Dec 02:00 Charlotte Hornets v Oklahoma City Thunder
A team that knows how to cover the spread in OKC and heading into this game they play a team that hasn’t even registered 10 wins for the season. OKC has won 4 games of their last 5 and in 4 of those wins, they were underdogs 3 times. Shai has been carrying his team, he’s averaging 31.5 points per game and I see him having a good game here. The Hornets allow 118 points per game, they certainly aren’t a team to shut down any offense, you have to back the Thunder with a spread here.
30 Dec 02:00 Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers
Tyrese Haliburton is leading the league in assists averaging 10,2 he remains questionable heading into this game but that status will change and he should play this game. There hasn’t been a single team that has blown out the Pacers when they play at home, so betting on them with a spread at the same odds is better than taking the Moneyline for the Cavs. This Pacers team has some of the best team chemistry in the NBA, the reason for them being over 500. I see them having their regular great home performances, take the Pacers.
30 Dec 02:30 Boston Celtics v LA Clippers
Boston looks to be playing good basketball again after that 3 games losing streak and the Clippers have 7 wins in their last 9. Boston was a good defensive side last season but this season they are allowing 112 points per game and the Clippers have a better defensive record than them. But this is going to be a different ball game of teams going back and forth. As the all-star weekend gets closer a lot of stars really start to show up and this is the game of the night, I see the over being the bet to take here. The cover has come in each of either team’s last 4, take it here too.
30 Dec 03:30 Dallas Mavericks v Houston Rockets
This depleted Rockets team is no match for the Dallas Mavericks, the only worry is the big spread given to the Mavericks. Last time the Mavs won but the Rockets managed to cover the spread. For higher value take the money line or spread for the first-half result, this game will be over in the first half with Luka dominating the whole game.
