Best Bets 2023 / 2024

The beginning of the calendar year is a key time for all NBA franchises, with jostling for league position essential as the playoffs loom. 

Another busy round of fixtures catches the eye with many NBA betting apps and there is plenty of betting opportunity out there for NBA punters. 

The Dallas Mavericks will be looking to rattle into the Memphis Grizzlies in the West, with the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs facing off in a basement battle, whilst the Charlotte Hornets host the Sacramento Kings. 

Dallas Mavericks vs Memphis Grizzlies Best Bet

10th January – American Airlines Centre, Dallas

Over 221.5 points & Mavericks to win the match @ 1.91 (PlayUp)

Things are seriously heating up in the Western Conference and the progress of the Dallas Mavericks is being closely monitored by many punters and NBA betting sites

With Luka Doncic in their side, the Mavericks are always a threat in any game and they welcome a Memphis Grizzlies side that finally look to be finding their feet in 2024. 

At home, the Dallas Mavericks are a tough nut to crack, but the Grizzlies have a winning record on the road this season and won’t be without belief. 

This should be a very entertaining watch, with points seemingly guaranteed but the Dallas Mavericks should prevail here.

Mavericks vs Grizzlies: Over 221.5 points & Mavericks to win the match @ 1.91.

Detroit Pistons vs San Antonio Spurs Best Bet

11th January – Little Ceasars Arena, Detroit. 

San Antonio Spurs to win the match  @ 1.85 (GetSetBet)  

The bottom two NBA sides go head-to-head in Michigan, as the Detroit Pistons take on the San Antonio Spurs. 

Having endured the well-documented 28-game losing streak, the Pistons have won just 3 games all season and they look to be in a real funk currently. 

San Antonio Spurs meanwhile have suffered a similar plight, winning just of their games played this season and they look to be rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference. 

Confidence is low in both camps, making this one a tough game to call but perhaps the San Antonio Spurs could have a little too much quality when it matters for the lowly Pistons. 

Pistons vs Spurs – Spurs to win the match @ 1.85.

Charlotte Hornets vs Sacramento Kings Best Bet

11th January – Spectrum Center, Charlotte
Sacramento Kings to win the match @ 1.90 (BlueBet)

Challenging at the sharp end of the Western Conference has long been the aim for the Sacramento Kings and they look to be finally fulfilling their promise with many NBA international betting sites this season. 

They travel to the Charlotte Hornets next, a side that have been plagued by inconsistency in the East this term but who can, on their day, challenge anybody. 

This should be a super game for the neutral and whilst the Hornets will be up for the challenge, the Sacramento Kings are in good form this season and they should prevail here.   

Hornets vs Kings – Kings to win the match @ 1.90.
