Top NBA Betting Picks of the Week (November 28th, 2022)

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

  • When: Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 7:00 PM ET
  • Where: Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Cleveland, OH
  • TV: BSOH, NBCSP
  • Radio: 97.5 The Fanatic (76ers) // WTAM 1100 AM (Cavaliers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

After a slow to start to the season, the 76ers have picked it up big time. Philadelphia has gone 7- 3 straight up and 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games. Cleveland shows 2 losses and a push ATS in their last 3. The Cavaliers starting five should play but key players like Ricky Rubio might be out. The Sixers have a big chance to grab a nice road win and cover.

NBA Betting Pick: 76ers

Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics

  • When: Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • TV: BSOH, NBCSP
  • Radio: AM 560 Sports WQAM (Heat) // 98.5 The Sports Hub (Celtics)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Boston should enter this game a huge chalk against the spread. Not only does this happen at the TD Garden, but Boston is on a 4-game SU and ATS streak. The Celtics also won the last head-to-head 111-104. The most previous match happened on Oct 21, not that long ago.

But although Boston will be tough, Miami could score at least a spread victory. Like the C’s, the Heat have also won 4 straight. Miami is also 3-0-1 ATS in those 4 victories. The Heat will be worth a look to at least cover the spread.

NBA Betting Pick: Heat

Denver Nuggets vs. Atlanta Hawks

  • When: Friday, December 2, 2022, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA
  • TV: BSSE-ATL, ALT
  • Radio: Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Nuggets) // 92.9 The Game WZGC FM (Hawks)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

As of Nov. 29, Denver was 4-1 against the spread and 5-0 straight up in their last 5. The Nuggets rank second in field goal percentage at 49.7 and second in three-point percentage at 39.8.

Atlanta is on a 3-game losing streak bot SU and ATS. The Hawks face a tough customer in the Nuggets. If the ATL plays one of their best games of the season, they might grab the victory. Playing one of their top contests isn’t likely, though. So Denver is the play.

NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets

Chicago Bulls vs. Golden State Warriors

  • When: Friday, December 2, 2022, 7:30 PM ET
  • Where: State Farm Arena, Atlanta, GA
  • TV: BSSE-ATL, ALT
  • Radio: 670 The Score (Bulls) // 95.7 The Game (Warriors)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Heading into the week, Chicago showed a 3-1 record both SU and ATS. The Bulls have climbed to within 2 games of .500.

Not counting their Tuesday matchup versus Dallas, Golden State is a game above .500. The Warriors appear to have gotten it together. Steve Kerr’s squad has won 3 in a row against the spread and straight up. The City takes this.

NBA Betting Pick: Warriors

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Charlotte Hornets

  • When: Saturday, December 3, 2022, 6:00 PM ET
  • Where: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC
  • TV: BSSE-CHA, BSWI
  • Radio: WTMJ 620 AM (Bucks) // 92.7 FM WFNZ (Hornets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

If we throw out the 140-105 loss to Boston on Nov. 28, the Hornets are playing well. But as long as LaMelo remains out with an injury, the more talented Ball brother has an ankle issue, Charlotte will struggle to keep pace with teams like the Bucks.

Milwaukee is on a 2-game cover and victory streak. The Bucks face the Knicks on Wednesday. Wether Milwaukee wins or loses that game, they’re a good play to cover against Charlotte.

NBA Betting Pick: Warriors

Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs

  • When: Sunday, December 4, 2022, 4:00 PM ET
  • Where: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
  • TV: BSSW-SA, BSAZ
  • Radio: KMVP-FM 98.7 FM (Suns) // 92.7 FM WFNZ (Spurs)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Not counting their Wednesday night matchup versus the Chicago Bulls, the Phoenix Suns have won 5 straight. But although the Suns are rolling SU, they’re not doing so well against the spread.

Phoenix could only beat the San Antonio Spurs by 5 in a 115-110 game. No doubt, the Spurs will offer overlay odds because San Antonio is so bad this season. Phoenix will win, but it’s difficult seeing the Suns covering the likely spread.

NBA Betting Pick: Spurs
