Los Angeles Lakers vs. New York Knicks

  • When: Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: 710 ESPNLA (Lakers) // 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio (Knicks)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Lakers are a mess. Los Angeles is 8-9 heading into the week. They’re not playing well at all. So even if LAL beats Detroit on Sunday, they’re not worth backing versus a strong NYK squad. The Knicks are 9-7 and boast a stronger starting five. Julius Randle is playing like a potential MVP. Knicks should win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Knicks

Brooklyn Nets vs. Boston Celtics

  • When: Wednesday, November 24th, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: WFAN 101.9 FM (Nets) // 98.5 The Sports Hub (Celtics)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Nets are rolling. Heading into the week, Brooklyn has won 8-of-10 and have grabbed first place in the Eastern Conference. But although the Nets look like winners, Boston is almost as hot. The Celtics have won 7-of-10 heading into the week. Boston also has a better record ATS, going 10-7 to the Nets 8-9. Give the Celtics a chance.

NBA Betting Pick: Celtics

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Denver Nuggets

  • When: Friday, November 26th, 2021. 9:00pm ET
  • Where: Ball Arena, Denver, Colorado
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: WTMJ 620 AM (Bucks) // Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Nuggets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Milwaukee played well to beat Orlando 117-108 on Nov. 20. Unfortunately for Bucks’ backers, the defending champions failed to cover in their fifth straight. In the last head-to-head, Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets dusted Giannis and the Bucks 128-97. The Bucks are a solid team but heading into this week, Milwaukee has yet to play the type of defense that will lead to a repeat NBA Championship victory. Nuggets should win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets

Phoenix Suns vs. Brooklyn Nets

  • When: Saturday, November 27th, 2021. 7:30pm ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: KTAR 98.7 FM (Suns) // WFAN 101.9 FM (Nets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

If you like basketball, you’ve got to love this matchup. Devin Booker, Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton on one side. James Harden and Kevin Durant on the other. Brooklyn has the slight edge because this happens on their court. The Suns, though, shoot 47.1% from the field and rank tenth in points allowed per game. Phoenix can win this straight up.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Saturday, November 27th, 2021. 8:00pm ET
  • Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio (Heat) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, the Miami Heat are 5-1 ATS in their last 6. Chicago has gone 11-5 ATS, which is the same as their SU record. It appears as if oddsmakers still don’t believe in the Bulls, which means they deserve a look in this if they’re the underdogs. Chicago averages almost 5 more points per game that they allow. This is a tough matchup. We’re backing the home team.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers

  • When: Sunday, November 28th, 2021. 3:30pm ET
  • Where: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, California
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 95.7 The Game FM (Warriors) // KLAC 570 AM (Clippers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Before dumping on the Warriors, consider a few things. First, Paul Georgi is dominating. PG-13 averages over 26 points and 5 assists per game. Second, this happens at the Staples Center, and, finally, the Clippers lost by just 2 points, 113-115, in the last head-to-head. Consider going Clippers moneyline.
