NBA Expert Tips and Best Bets | December 4th – 6th

Best Bets 2023 / 2024

Whilst the regular NBA season rolls on, it is crunch time in the NBA in-season tournament, with 8 sides remaining in contention for the inaugural title. 

In the East, the Indiana Pacers take on the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks host the New York Knicks, with the LA Lakers and the Phoenix Suns doing battle in the West.  

Indiana Pacers vs Boston Celtics Best Bet

5th December – Gainbridge Fieldhouse, Indianapolis

Boston Celtics to win the match @ 1.65 (PlayUp)

Reaching the last 4 in the NBA in-season tournament would be an excellent return for both the Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics and both teams have been impressing NBA betting sites with their performances in the Eastern Conference. 

Little was expected of the Pacers this term, but they are an exciting side, who fear nobody and they should relish this contest at home against Boston here. 

For the Celtics meanwhile, any silverware will do at this point and with a generational roster, they will be hoping to reach the last 4 here. 

Calling this one is tough but the Celtics are a very strong outfit, who should prevail and reach the final 4.

New York Knicks vs Milwaukee Bucks Best Bet

6th December – Madison Square Garden, New York

Milwaukee Bucks to win the match @ 1.55 (GetSetBet)  

Two more Eastern Conference giants go at it in this one, as the New York Knicks welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to the Big Apple. 

The Knicks do look to have turned a corner of sorts lately and reaching the last 8 of the first ever NBA in-season tournament, is representative of their progress this term. 

For the Milwaukee Bucks meanwhile, this is the type of big game they have reveled in recent years, with knockout basketball seemingly something they relish. 

The atmosphere at Madison Square Garden should be superb here but it could well be the Bucks who prevail when it matters.

LA Lakers vs Phoenix Suns Best Bet

6th December – Arena, Los Angeles

Over 224.5 points in the match @ 1.95 (BlueBet)

The prospect of the Lakers welcoming the Suns is always a big one with both domestic and international betting sites alike and the two giants meeting in a quarter final, is almost incomprehensible. 

For the Lakers, putting trophies in the cabinet is the hallmark of their club and they will be out to reach the last 4 of the first ever NBA in-season tournament. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns are the form time in both the Western Conference and the wider NBA and how they would love to be the party poopers in California. 

This is a tough one to call in terms of winning the match but both sides play on the front foot and points look to be guaranteed.  

Lakers vs Suns – Over 224.5 points in the match @ 1.95.
