The big games in the NBA continue to come thick and fast.

With the chaotic festive season in full swing between Thanksgiving and Christmas, another round of midweek fixtures promises to deliver. All of the biggest online betting sites are keeping an eye on Orlando Magic, who take on the Washington Wizards in the East, whilst the Denver Nuggets face the Houston Rockets, and the Sacramento Kings take on the LA Clippers in the West.   

Orlando Magic vs Washington Wizards Best Bet

30th November – Amway Center, Orlando

Very few NBA betting sites predicted the meteoric rise of the Orlando Magic this season and they find themselves in the midst of a 7-game winning streak. 

Next up is a meeting with basement dwellers the Washington Wizards and they will come into this one as the hot favourites. 

For Magic, continuing to build on their impressive start to the campaign is key and they do look to be fearless currently, making them decent value to overcome the Wizards on paper.  
Whilst completely discarding the Washington Wizards doesn’t seem wise, Orlando Magic are a very good side, and they should prevail at home here.

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets Best Bet

30th November – Ball Arena, Denver

Defending NBA champions the Denver Nuggets have hit a tricky patch of sorts lately but they will be eager to develop some consistency as they take on the Houston Rockets. 

For the Nuggets, staying in the playoff mix for as long as possible will be key and their 8 wins from 8 home games played this season, is indicative of how they have managed to make the Ball Arena a fortress. 

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets are a plucky outfit, who continue to impress in the Western Conference. Sat in 8th, the Rockets have produced some excellent performances this season, however, they have lost all 5 of their away games played. 

With that in mind, there does only seem to be one winner here and the Denver Nuggets should relish the chance to put some points on the board at home.

Sacramento Kings vs LA Clippers Best Bet

30th November – Golden 1 Center, Sacramento 
Over 227.5 points in the match @ 2.25 (BlueBet)
A Californian derby is whetting the appetite for both domestic and international betting sites alike, as the Sacramento Kings take on the LA Clippers. With no love lost between the two sides, it promises to be an epic battle – regardless of the fact there are precious Western Conference points up for grabs here. 

The Sacramento Kings have been steadily improving this year, currently sat in 5th, they will believe that a playoff spot is firmly within their reach at the end of the season. 

For the LA Clippers meanwhile, this game presents an opportunity to force their way into top 8 contention and improve on their league position of 11th. 

Calling this one is tough, with little to split the sides but both teams love putting points on the board and it could be an entertaining one in Sacramento.  

Kings vs Clippers – Over 227.5 points in the match @ 2.25.
