NBA Expert Tips and Best Bets 2 |December 13th – 15th 2023
Miami Heat vs Charlotte Hornets Best Bet
14th December – Kaseya Center, Miami
Miami Heat to win the match @ 1.80 (PlayUp)
Action in the East is on the agenda, as Miami Heat take on the Charlotte Hornets in what should be a very entertaining encounter in Florida.
Heat haven’t been at their fluent best so far this season but they certainly haven’t been written out by any NBA betting sites.
The Charlotte Hornets meanwhile have endured a tough start to the season and they find themselves down in 13th place in the Eastern Conference table. They have work to do if they want to crack the top 8 this season and the Miami Heat should have too much about them at home here.
Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Best Bet
14th December – Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee
Indiana Pacers to win the match @ 2.45 (GetSetBet)
Two of the biggest sides in the Eastern Conference go at it, as the Milwaukee Bucks take on the Indiana Pacers. The Bucks have enjoyed an excellent record at home this season and they remain one of the front runners to clinch NBA Championship glory this season.
They welcome an Indiana Pacers side that are continually growing in confidence this season and they find themselves firmly in the mix in the Eastern Conference. This should be one of the games of the season and the Pacers look to be ready to fire here.
Phoenix Suns vs Brooklyn Nets Best Bet
14th December – Footprint Center, Phoenix
Phoenix Suns to win the match @ 1.85 (BlueBet)
East meets West in a fascinating encounter, as the Phoenix Suns take on the Brooklyn Nets. Suns haven’t been able to fire in the way many people expected this season but they are always treated with a degree of caution by both domestic and international betting sites.
Next up is the visit of the Brooklyn Nets, one of the sides expected to be firmly in the mix in the Eastern Conference and they find themselves in the playoff mix, despite some inconsistent performances this term.
Anything could happen in this one but Phoenix Suns need a win and they should pick up an important win here.
