NBA Expert Tips and Best Bets |December 5th – 7th 2023 

Best Bets 2023 / 2024

Whilst the NBA in-season tournament remains a big distraction for the final 8, regular season action is on the agenda for the remaining NBA franchises. 

There are some huge games catching the eye with the biggest NBA online betting sites with the Orlando Magic at the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East, as well as the Houston Rockets taking Oklahoma City Thunder and the LA Clippers hosting the Denver Nuggets in the West. 

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Orlando Magic Best Bet

7th December – Rocket Mortgage Field House, Cleveland

Orlando Magic to win the match @ 1.95 (PlayUp)

The performances of Orlando Magic this season have certainly caught the eye with NBA betting sites and they are sitting pretty in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference. They travel to the Cleveland Cavaliers next, with the Cavs having endured a mixed season so far – winning 11 of their opening 20 games. 

With the Cavaliers having so far been unable to generate any sort of consistency at home and with the Magic possessing a winning record on the road, this could be another good win for Orlando on their travels but they certainly won’t be expecting to have things all their own way. 

Cavaliers vs Magic: Magic to win the match @ 1.95

Houston Rockets vs Oklahoma City Thunder Best Bet

7th December – Toyota Center, Houston

Oklahoma City Thunder to win the match @ 2.05 (GetSetBet) 

Another team making light work of the form/prediction book is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who have been in superb form this season in the Western Conference and their next assignment is a trip to the Houston Rockets. 

For the home side, this is a real chance to put down a marker. With 8 wins from 9 home games, Houston have really made it tough to come and win at the Toyota Center this season. 

In the same vein, no side in the Western Conference has a better record away from home than the Thunder, meaning something will need to give in this one. 

Houston is a very tough place to go currently but Oklahoma City Thunder are a side in good nick, and they may well prevail here.  

Rockets vs Thunder – Thunder to win the match @ 2.05.

LA Clippers vs Denver Nuggets Best Bet

7th December – Arena, Los Angeles

Over 224.5 points in the match @ 2.15 (BlueBet)
Defending NBA champions Denver Nuggets remain one of the sides to catch in the eyes of both domestic and international betting sites alike and they travel to the LA Clippers next. 

Hosts the LA Clippers have shown glimpses of their quality this season, but with just 9 wins from their opening 20 games, they know that they need to develop more consistency if they are to be in the playoff shakeup. 

The Denver Nuggets meanwhile sit 3rd in the Western Conference, with their away form being their Achillies Heel so far – something they will need to rectify here. 

Calling this result is tough, as the Clippers are strong at home but playing the Nuggets is a task not many people are up to. Regardless of which team comes out on top, plenty of points look set to be recorded here. 

Clippers vs Nuggets – Over 224.5 points in the match @ 2.15
