Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, January 15th (2022)

Yesterday was a great start to the weekend. We went 3-0 on our NBA picks and had a great upset with the Golden State Warriors winning at +160 odds. Tonight there are a handful of great NBA games to watch. Even though all of them might not be great to watch, there are plenty of NBA games with betting value tonight. The key to betting on games tonight is to find the most consistent teams. The NBA is a long season, and finding consistency in the chaos will increase the chances of winning. Let’s look into today’s most consistent teams to find the best bets.

Chicago Bulls +5 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

Chicago has some players out, namely Zach Lavine and Alex Caruso. These two are major contributors, and I understand that. The truth is, the Celtics have been inconsistent this year. The team is fighting amongst themselves, and some players don’t think they are getting the ball enough. The Bulls are the more consistent team. They are a regular-season team that is good and will beat inconsistent clubs. We are also getting betting value because the Bulls recently lost to the Nets and Warriors. Those are two teams that could win a championship this year. The Bulls have all the betting value in this matchup. 

Miami Heat -2 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Heat have been a go-to of mine all year. They have plenty of talent to make a deep playoff run. Miami has not been healthy all year, but they are starting to get players back. That will help them deeper in the season and back-to-back games because their players have fewer minutes on their legs. The 76ers are a great team, but they have struggled to stop the top-tier NBA teams like the Nets, Warriors, Heat, and Bucks. A bettor has to take the team with the edge, and in this game, that team is the Heat. 

Los Angeles Clippers Moneyline  +120 at DraftKings Sportsbook

These are two teams I usually avoid betting to win. The Spurs are on a five-game losing streak and 1-9 in their last 10 games. They are struggling right now. That means I have to take them to lose this game. The Clippers aren’t the best team this year and are inconsistent. They have defeated good teams and lost against bad teams. They are better than the Spurs right now and more consistent. This game is really about betting on the Spurs to keep losing. With this being a back-to-back game for the Spurs, I think the Clippers have the advantage.
