Hopefully, everyone had a great Thanksgiving. The NFL gave us two great games to watch yesterday and one not so great. Today the NBA is back, and there are games for bettors to get in on. Twelve total games and plenty of betting value. There are teams that bettors want to start buying and a few to start selling. The trick to betting the NBA is to buy and sell at the correct times. Let us look into this week to find the best teams to buy and sell.
Phoenix Suns -3 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Today bettors want to continue to buy the Suns. The Suns are on a 14 game winning streak, and the Knicks are too inconsistent to bring an end to that streak. Devin Booker has been playing phenomenally, averaging 23 points per game. Guards are having success in scoring against the Knicks. The Knicks have a weaker defensive back-court. Derrick Rose coming back from a sprained ankle hurts the team’s ability to defend opposing guards. With the scoring ability that the Suns have at the guard position, the Suns are the consistent play. All of their wins this year, the Suns have won by three or more points. That gives this betting line plenty of betting value. That means this is the time to buy the Suns and sell the Knicks.
Minnesota Timberwolves Moneyline +120 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Minnesota is starting to heat up. They are entering the buying stage if they continue at this rate. This year the Timberwolves have been a streaky team, which means there is betting value if bettors can catch them when they start to heat up. Right now, they are on a five-game winning streak. They started the year on a three-game winning streak, then had another three-game winning streak. Now the Timberwolves have started a five-game winning streak, and the reason for the current win streak is how well Russell, Towns, and Edwards are playing together. That means it is time for bettors to buy on the Timberwolves.
Devin Booker Over 22.5 Points -115 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Booker averages 23 points per game. In his last two games, he has scored 24 and 35 points. Now, the Suns play a New York Knicks team that is allowing guards to score against them. In the last two games, the Knicks have allowed a guard 31 points against them in both games. Without Derrick Rose healthy, the Knicks will continue to struggle defending guards. The bad part for them is that the Suns have plenty of them. Bookers points are projected at 27 this game, and that means there is betting value. This game is an opportunity for bettors to use the player props cheat sheeting on BettingPros to find betting value. Let us bet the value in this matchup with Devin Booker.
