Los Angeles Clippers @ Indiana Pacers picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Los Angeles Clippers
Indiana Pacers
IND Pacers Point Spread
+0
Under Game Totals
+0

Against the Spread Pick

The Clippers are off a humbling loss to Milwaukee. They played their stars and got smoked, losing by 28 as no player scored more than 17 points. I don’t want to go too deep but they might be missing Landry Shamet more than expected. He gave them some shooting on the perimeter and some defense there too. They are still playing very good ball overall but going from the Bucks to the Pacers is only a modest step down. The Clippers will be on a back to back so check to see if anyone is “hurt”.  The Pacers escaped New York with a one-point win. They probably should have shown better than that but it was a back to back and they were off a loss. The advantage for Indiana is going to be inside in this one. Look for them to take advantage of the fact that they play with a lot more size than L.A. upfront. Damontas Sabonis will be key. Take Indiana.

Over Under Pick

If the Clippers rest one of their studs and are a little tired then Indiana will be happy to play at a slower pace. That is where they are best. At home, the Pacers have played one more under than over this season and their last three games overall have gone that way too. Take the under here.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Cleveland Cavaliers
Boston Celtics
BOS Celtics Point Spread
+0
Under Game Totals
+0

Against the Spread Pick

The Cavs were just smoked by Philadelphia, they lost by 47 and gave up 141 points in the process. There are grumblings in the locker room too so things are pretty messy and unlike in New York they are not going to fire the coach. An easy opponent would be great for the Cavs but the Celtics are anything but that. The only positive from the blowout was the 17 points from Darius Garland. Their top rookie has not contributed that much very often. Boston should be feeling good after a couple of back to back home wins against good teams, Miami and Denver. They are in a real battle with Toronto and Philly in the Atlantic so avoiding a slip up in games like these is going to be important. I know the Cavs sometimes put up a good fight but it is just hard to see them taking down Boston in this situation. Take the Celtics at home.

Over Under Pick

Boston has played mostly unders this season. They certainly can score but a lot of their guys are more volume scorers so handpicking those games of greater efficiency is going to be really tough. They play good defense too and Cleveland is not going to speed this one up. Put that all together and the under is the way to go.

Mon, Dec 9th - 8:00pm ET:
Detroit Pistons @ New Orleans Pelicans picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Detroit Pistons
New Orleans Pelicans
NO Pelicans -1 Point Spread
-110
Under 226.5 Game Totals
-110

Against The Spread Pick

This is a stay away game overall just because of how inconsistent both of these teams have been, and there is no figuring out how well they will play. The only lean in this game is with the Pelicans just because of how bad the Pistons have been on the road. The Pelicans only have four wins at home, but the Pistons are even worse on the road with only two wins. This is a lean but back the Pelicans.

Over Under Pick

As much as I hate the side, the total is even worse. The Pelicans’ offense hasn’t been great as of late so look for them to really slow down the pace in this game. This really isn’t even a lean but the pace should be slow enough the under is covered.

Mon, Dec 9th - 8:00pm ET:
Toronto Raptors @ Chicago Bulls picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Toronto Raptors
Chicago Bulls
TOR Raptors Point Spread
+0
Under Game Totals
+0

Against The Spread Pick

The Raptors have lost two games in a row, but this is a big bounce back spot for them against a team that isn’t very good. The Raptors are averaging six more points a game than the Bulls, and giving up three points less. Over their last five games the Raptors are averaging 113 points per game while the Bulls are averaging only 102. The road team is 8-0 against the spread in the last eight meetings played between the two teams. Back the Raptors to cover the spread in this game.

Over Under Pick

Last year the Bulls were a team that was having a lot of success running up the score and they didn’t play a whole lot of defense, but this year it’s a little different. Their offense doesn’t run up the score as high, and against a good defense they won’t have a ton of success scoring. The under is 8-2-1 in the Raptors’ last 11 games as a road favorite, and 5-1 in the Bulls’ last six home games. Back the under to cash in this one.

Mon, Dec 9th - 8:00pm ET:
Sacramento Kings @ Houston Rockets picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Sacramento Kings
Houston Rockets
SAC Kings Point Spread
+0
Over Game Totals
+0

Against The Spread Pick

The Kings have not won a whole lot of games this season, but they are still underestimated in terms of covering spreads. Over their last ten games they have covered seven, and on the road this year they are 8-4 against the spread. The Kings’ defense is only giving up 108 points per game and they will do enough on defense to keep this score close and cover the large number. The Kings are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 games. Back the Kings.

Over Under Pick

Even though the Kings are going to play enough defense to cover the spread, they are still going to give up plenty of points. At home this season the Rockets are scoring 121 per game and over their last five that number has risen to 128.4. The over is 4-1 in the Rockets’ last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. Back the over to cash in this one.

Mon, Dec 9th - 8:00pm ET:
Orlando Magic @ Milwaukee Bucks picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Orlando Magic
Milwaukee Bucks
MIL Bucks -11.5 Point Spread
-110
Under 219 Game Totals
-110

Against the Spread Pick

Orlando has snuck back to .500 but that is not likely to last long with Milwaukee up next. They have won five of 6 but they were mostly against poor teams and the one time they played a good one, they lost (Toronto). Terrence Ross seems to have finally found the range but with Nikola Vucevic still out that can only move the needle so much. You can try and keep up with Milwaukee in terms of long range bombing but that is generally a losing battle. The Bucks are on fire right now. They have won 14 in a row and most of them have been of the blowout variety. It seems like every possession they are able to get a very good shot and they usually go in – 2nd in FG%. That puts so much pressure on your defense, and offense, to keep up and most teams eventually wilt. This will be no different. Take Milwaukee.

Over Under Pick

The Bucks might be the top scoring team in the league but that has not led to a lot of overs this season. They are just 12-11 O/U for the year. They are predictable and perhaps a little public at this stage. They also play pretty good defense and the games are often not close, so there are not a lot of easy points at the end of the game. Take the under here.

Mon, Dec 9th - 9:00pm ET:
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Phoenix Suns picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Minnesota Timberwolves
Phoenix Suns
MIN Timberwolves Point Spread
+0
Over Game Totals
+0

Against the Spread Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation when they visit the Phoenix Suns on Monday. Andrew Wiggins had been listed as day-to-day with a thumb injury but he ended up being good to go against the Lakers. Karl-Anthony Towns, who scored 30 points against Oklahoma City earlier this week, also played (he was probable because of a minor knee issue). Phoenix is 3-8 in its last 11 outings and may be a bit fatigued coming off a four-game road trip. Minnesota is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 on the road. The Suns are 0-4 ATS in their last four at home and 8-17 ATS in their last 25 at home against opponents with winning road records. Check back later for the odds (not out as of Sunday night due to Minnesota’s contest in L.A.), but the TIMBERWOLVES are likely the play.

Over Under Pick

Both teams are giving up more than 114 points per game this season and they are both scoring more than 114, as well. Phoenix guard Devin Booker has scored 44 and 35 points in his two most recent appearances. The over is 6-2 in the Timberwolves’ last eight on the road. It is also 12-4 in the Suns’ last 16 overall, 8-1 in their last nine at home, and 6-2 in their last eight playing on one day of rest. You should probably back the OVER depending on how the total turns out.

Mon, Dec 9th - 9:00pm ET:
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Utah Jazz picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Oklahoma City Thunder
Utah Jazz
UTA Jazz -8.5 Point Spread
-110
Over 212.5 Game Totals
-110

Against the Spread Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation when they visit the Utah Jazz on Monday. Oklahoma City won Friday’s contest against Minnesota on Friday because–and only because–Jordan Bell had his jersey untucked. You cannot make this stuff up, folks. If not for that blunder by the Timberwolves, the Thunder would have been in the midst of a two-game losing streak. Utah had been on a three-game skid of its own but managed to beat Memphis 126-112 on Saturday. Donovan Mitchell (24.6 ppg) has led the Jazz in scoring on two consecutive occasions. Mitchell and company should be able to exploit Oklahoma City’s tired legs. Lean toward UTAH.

Over Under Pick

Second games of back-to-backs generally mean poor defense, and that has been the case with Oklahoma City in the past. This team does not play particularly good defense in general, surrendering more than 109 points per game. The winning team in Utah’s last four outings has scored at least 121 points. The over is 4-0 in the Thunder’s last four playing on zero days of rest. It is also 7-2 in the Jazz’s last nine overall, 4-0 in their last four at home, and 5-1 in their last six playing on one day of rest. Look for this one to go OVER the total.

Mon, Dec 9th - 10:30pm ET:
Memphis Grizzlies @ Golden State Warriors picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Memphis Grizzlies
Golden State Warriors
GS Warriors -3.5 Point Spread
-110
Under 217.5 Game Totals
-120

Against the Spread Pick

It is not often that you can feel good about the Golden State Warriors’ chances of winning a basketball game–especially by at least four points. This is one of those rare cases, mainly because the Memphis Grizzlies inspire zero confidence these days. The Grizzlies are without Ja Morant and Brandon Clarke is also sidelined, which is part of the reason why they are 1-9 in their past 10 contests. Golden State has Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell back from injury. Memphis is 1-4 ATS in its last five overall, 1-5 ATS in its last six against opponents with losing records, and 1-4 ATS in its last five trips to Golden State. The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last five against opponents with winning percentages under .400 and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the two teams. Expect GOLDEN STATE to take advantage of a struggling opponent.

Over Under Pick

In his second game back from injury, Russell went 2-for-8 from the floor in Friday’s low-scoring affair with Chicago (a 100-98 Golden State victory). Memphis is lacking firepower and has slowed down the pace of play with Morant out. The under is 4-1 in the Grizzlies’ last five against opponents with winning percentages under .400. It is also 4-0 in the Warriors’ last four overall. Additionally, the under is 4-1 in Memphis’ last five at Golden State and 15-7 in the last 22 meetings between the two teams. Roll with the UNDER.

Latest NBA News

Other Sports News

The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to actually acknowledge that there games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league. This can only be considered as a good thing for NBA betting and professional basketball bettors. Much like hockey, there are no shortage of NBA predictions on every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

What Free NBA Expert Picks Do You Offer At Pickswise?

There are 2,460 games to bet on during the season and our expert NBA predictions provide betting angles into every game. If you’re looking for the best NBA bets today we have you covered. Our NBA experts share their best free NBA predictions each and every.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?

We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day.  The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyse every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily.  Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedule and referees and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.

Free NBA Predictions Moneyline

The moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not farfetched for the Warriors moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread

When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.

NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or less points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause the upset and win the game outright.

Free NBA Picks Over Under

NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA you might see a 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.

Expert NBA Parlays And Teaser NBA Predictions

NBA teasers are one of the few sports where these types of bets are utilized besides pro and college football. The most common points available in NBA teasers are 4, 4.5, and 5 with some books offering 7 points. You can apply these points on anywhere from 2 to 14 games with each bet you add the payout odds increasing. Of course in order for an NBA teaser to be graded a win, each team on the ticket must be graded a win. NBA parlays work in very much the same manner with between 2 and 10 teams being added to a ticket. You don’t get the 4, 4.5, or 5 points in NBA parlays but the payout odds are better

NBA Playoff Predictions

In addition to free daily NBA predictions, we also provide insight into NBA postseason betting. From best of seven quarterfinals matchups to the NBA Championship Finals, there’s nothing quite like the excitement of game seven in the series. In the NBA postseason home court becomes an even bigger advantage but it’s important to make sure the lines reflect that. Our experts analyse every playoff game and give you their expert NBA predictions to help you make the best selections in April and finish off the season in profit.
