A combination of climbing the league table and picking up wins in the in-season tournament will be the ultimate aim for all NBA teams this week. The Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks clash is catching the eye with many NBA online betting sites, whilst Miami Heat host Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors take on Oklahoma City Thunder, in two more seismic battles. 

Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks Best Bet

16th November – State Farm Center, Atlanta

New York Knicks to win the match @ 2.08 (PlayUp)

Two sides that have sprung a couple of surprises so far this season do battle in Atlanta, as the Hawks take on New York Knicks. 

For Atlanta, sitting 5th in the table is representative of their bright start to the campaign and they are starting to catch the eye with a few notable NBA betting sites

Having won 5 and lost 4 of their opening 9 games, a sense of caution is needed with regards the optimism surrounding the Hawks and the same could be said of the New York Knicks, who possess an identical winning record this term. 

However, the Knicks do look to be finally clicking and are enjoying a 3-game winning streak, which could be the catalyst for another important win on the road here at the Hawks.

Miami Heat vs Brooklyn Nets Best Bet

16th November – Kaseya Center, Miami

Over 223.5 points in the match  @ 2.05 (GetSetBet)  

Two of the more forward-thinking franchises in the Eastern Conference go at it in Miami, as the Heat welcome the Brooklyn Nets to town. 

For the Miami Heat, this should be an important season, as they look to make at least a play-off place and hope that they can pick up some more meaningful success from there. They have started the campaign well, with 6 wins from their opening 10, a level of consistency they will need to maintain. 

The Brooklyn Nets meanwhile are still battling away, with 5 wins and 5 losses from their opening ten games and it’s a lack of consistency that is limiting how far they can progress. 

Calling the winner here won’t be easy but both sides should make plenty of shots and the points could rack up in Florida here.  

Heat vs Nets – Over 223.5 points in the match @ 2.05.

Golden State Warriors vs Oklahoma City Thunder Best Bet

16th November – Chase Center, San Francisco

Golden State Warriors to win the match @ 1.75 (BlueBet)
Gathering momentum will be on the agenda here for the Golden State Warriors, who face a tricky looking fixture against Oklahoma City Thunder. 

The Warriors always have high expectations at the start of the season and their performances are scrutinised by international betting sites from all corners of the world and 6th place in the Western Conference isn’t where they would want to be. 

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder are flying in the same division, sat in 5th place and putting points on the board for fun. 

This will be a very tight game but Golden State Warriors need a win following three consecutive losses and they should get one here.
