Two sides sitting in third place in their respective conferences go at it, as the Philadelphia 76ers welcome the Denver Nuggets. 

For the 76ers, this is an important one, with their progress this season being tracked by many betting sites and they will be desperate to take the game to the reigning NBA champions here. 

The Denver Nuggets haven’t hit the heights of last season but they can come good in an instant and they are well placed to challenge in the West and beyond this season. 

Calling this one is tough but home advantage could prove telling for the 76ers.

Phoenix Suns vs Sacramento Kings Best Bet

17th January – Footprint Center, Phoenix 
Phoenix Suns to win the match @ 1.85 (GetSetBet)  

It has been a long time coming but the Phoenix Suns are finally starting to tick in the NBA in 2024. They welcome the Sacramento Kings next, a side that have been in good nick all season but their recent form will be a cause for concern heading into this one. 

For the Suns, cracking the top 8 is essential and they will see this as a huge game in terms of their NBA Championship aspirations. 

Meanwhile, the Kings are sat 6th in the Western Conference table, mainly due to their home form but they will have a real good go here. 

That said, the Phoenix Suns need a win and they should get one at home.

Los Angeles Clippers vs Oklahoma City Thunder Best Bet

17th January – Arena, Los Angeles

Oklahoma City Thunder to win the match @ 1.91 (BlueBet)

An absolutely huge contest lies in wait here, as the LA Clippers welcome the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Both sides have impressed hugely so far this season and they are being tipped by many domestic and international betting sites to be in the NBA Championship mix this term. 

For the LA Clippers, this game is a huge opportunity to assert themselves in the Western Conference, as they look to build on their 4th placed standing. 

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Thunder have been a winning machine this season and this will be a test of their mettle, a test they should be up for passing.
