NBA Expert Tips and Best Bets 2 |January 4th – 6th 2024

Best Bets 2023 / 2024

The regularity of the NBA midweek schedule always creates plenty of traction with punters and betting apps the world over. 

NBA in-season tournament champions LA Lakers welcome the Miami Heat, the San Antonio Spurs take on the Milwaukee Bucks, whilst the Golden State Warriors clash with the Denver Nuggets in a blockbuster tie.  

LA Lakers vs Miami Heat Best Bet

4th January – Centre, Los Angeles 
LA Lakers to win the match @ 1.67 (PlayUp)

Time is of the essence for both the LA Lakers and the Miami Heat, who are looking to force their way into their respective playoff pictures with many NBA betting sites

For the LA Lakers, making the playoffs in the West is a minimum expectation and a slow start to the season is starting to be made up for of late. 

Miami Heat meanwhile remain a side many believe are capable of going all the way in the race for the NBA Championship and this is a proper test of their mettle. 

This should be a belter, with the Lakers most likely to come out on top.  

Lakers vs Heat: Lakers to win the match @ 1.67.

San Antonio Spurs vs Milwaukee Bucks Best Bet

5th January – AT&T Center, San Antonio
Over 227.5 points & Bucks to win the match  @ 1.75 (GetSetBet)  

It has been a disastrous start to the 2024 NBA season for the San Antonio Spurs, who will be looking to seriously upset the form book against the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Much was expected of the Spurs heading into the campaign but a string of poor performances have seen them win just 5 games this term. 

The Milwaukee Bucks meanwhile are challenging hard at the top of the Eastern Conference and they need to keep winning here to stay in the hunt. 

This one may not be pretty in Texas, with the Bucks ready to run up a big score. 

Spurs vs Bucks – Over 227.5 points & Bucks to win the match @ 1.75.

Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets Best Bet

5th January – Chase Center, San Francisco
Golden State Warriors to win the match @ 2.30 (BlueBet)

It has been a tough few weeks for the Golden State Warriors but a win last time out will give them confidence as they take on the Denver Nuggets. 

For the Warriors, they are a side always under scrutiny with many domestic and international betting sites and their form this season has been a riddle for many punters. 

They welcome the Denver Nuggets, who are the defending NBA champions and they look well placed for a playoff spot. 

This should be compelling viewing and Golden State could be finding form at the right time for this one.  

Warriors vs Nuggets – Warriors to win the match @ 2.30.
