Best Bets 2023 / 2024

Against the backdrop of plenty of conjecture, the 2024 NBA season has hit the ground running, with plenty of big results catching the attention of punters and online betting sites alike. 

The Phoenix Suns will be looking to find some form as they travel to the Chicago Bulls, as will the LA Lakers against the Houston Rockets, meanwhile the lowly Memphis Grizzlies welcome Miami Heat. 

Chicago Bulls vs Phoenix Suns Best Bet

9th November – United Center, Chicago

Phoenix Suns to win the match @ 2.1 (PlayUp)

It has been an inauspicious start to the 2024 campaign for both the Chicago Bulls and the Phoenix Suns and both sides will see this game as a chance to develop some momentum. 
The Bulls have endured a tough few years, struggling to trouble the scorers in the NBA and they haven’t been backed to heavily by many NBA betting sites this season. 

By contrast, the Phoenix Suns were really expected to kick on this term but have struggled thus far, languishing in 12th in the Western Conference, with just 3 wins from their opening 7 games. 

This should be a very good one in the Windy City and whilst the Bulls will be up for it, the Suns look good value to get the job done.

Houston Rockets vs LA Lakers Best Bet

9th November – Toyota Center, Houston

Point Spread: LA Lakers - 7.5 @ 2.15 (GetSetBet)  

It has also been a largely forgettable start to the season for the LA Lakers, who travel to the Houston Rockets next, desperate for some points. 

Mid-table serenity has been the aim for the Houston Rockets this term, with 3 wins and 3 losses from their opening 6 and whilst they haven’t been pulling up any trees this term, they remain a dangerous side. 

For the LA Lakers, this has the feel of an important game already, with just 3 wins from their opening 7 games and they head into it two places below the Rockets in the Western Conference table. 

Something needs to click for the LA Lakers and this could be the ideal game for them to put the Rockets to the sword and pick up some momentum with a big win.

Rockets vs Lakers – Point Spread: Lakers - 7.5 @ 2.15

Memphis Grizzlies vs Miami Heat Best Bet

9th November – FedEx Forum, Memphis

Miami Heat to win the match @ 2.00 (BlueBet)

The 2024 campaign has been a shocker so far for the Memphis Grizzlies, who find themselves bottom of the Western Conference with just one win from their opening 7 games. 

Next on the agenda is a meeting with Miami Heat, a team that always catches the eye with domestic and international betting sites and they will be fancying their chances of getting a result in Memphis. 

Heat haven’t been firing on all cylinders so far this term, winning 3 and losing 4 of their 7 played but they have some canny operators, who should get the job done here. 

Grizzlies vs Heat – Heat to win @ 2.00.
