NBA Best Bets 1/29/21

The Take it to the Hizzy NBA Best Bets are back! We have many opportunities tonight with a balanced eight-game slate. Let’s get a head start for the weekend with a profitable Friday Night in the NBA. It wouldn’t hurt to have some extra betting funds for the Super Bowl, too; let’s take a look at a few games we can close in on with positive trends and tendencies to give us a Gambler’s Edge!

Indiana Pacers vs. Charlotte Hornets

I’m keeping it simple and going back to the well with the Pacers in this matchup. They beat the Hornets Wednesday night 116-106 and have won three of their last four games. The current spread for this game is 3.5 points in favor of the Pacers, and I’ll be hammering it. The Pacers covered 10 points just two days ago, are 5-2 ATS when playing on the road, and average eight more points per game over the Hornets. The Pacers have only covered two games in their last six, but they’re playing with more discipline on the road, and the matchup is excellent!

The Hornets are going through a cold streak as they have one victory in their last seven games. The team has an identity issue and lacks a true leader. Gordan Hayward might be that guy in a year or so in terms of the locker room, but the team lacks a floor general who commands the ball and takes over games when necessary, and I never see Hayward being that guy. This team has pieces that score, distribute, and defend, but they need more time to develop chemistry and flow. Plenty of their players put up points and load up the box score, but the team is still 7-11 SU and 9-9 ATS.

If I can’t convince you to bet the Pacers on the spread, then bet the Over. The total has gone to the Over in five of each team’s last six games. The total has also gone to the Over in each of these teams’ previous six meetings. The current total is 219.5, and I expect line movement as we get closer to tipoff; grab this number while you can!

Best Bet: Pacers -3.5 / Second Favorite Bet: Over 219.5

Brooklyn Nets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Nets have been nothing short of entertaining since acquiring James Harden from the Rockets. Nets games have been a constant back and forth of consistent offense from both teams. Since acquiring Harden, the team has averaged 121 points scored and 122 points allowed. The Nets are 4-2 SU across Harden’s first six games but just 2-4 ATS. The Nets haven’t been able to bury teams on both sides of the floor, the offense is always there, but the defense isn’t; the team is -1 since acquiring Harden.

The spread in this matchup currently sits at eight points in favor of Brooklyn. That’s far too large of a spread for a Nets team that is 1-4 ATS in their last five games. The Thunder have also been holding their own. Oklahoma City is 4-2 ATS in their previous six games and has averaged 110 points across that period, which’s four points higher than their season average.

I’m still predicting a victory for the Nets, so a money line bet will always be in play, but you probably won’t get any value better than -350 unless one of the Nets stars get pulled from the lineup. I also expect this game to hit the over of 229.5 points. I think that line could move as well; these teams have averaged a total of 231 across their last six games; look for a 231.5 total by the time we make it to tipoff. Grab the number while you can; I’m predicting a 120-116 victory for the Nets.

Best Bet: Oklahoma City +8 / Second Favorite Bet: Over 229.5
