NBA Best Bets (and the NBA) are back! This year has been quite the journey. It is crazy to think that a New Year is just around the corner. I am here to give you some NBA Betting tips: my 2 favorite NBA spreads to bet on December 30th. Let’s hop right into it!

Note: I am using the lines set by FanDuel Sportsbook. Also, these are just my thoughts and opinions. I am not responsible for any loss of money, or broken items in rage.
6:40 PM: 76ers (-2.5) at Magic, O/U: 218.5
The only remaining undefeated team is an underdog? at home?? I won’t allow it. Embiid will get his tonight (if he plays), but the Sixers don’t scare me. Last year, the 76ers were 12-26 on the road. The Magic will cover and win this game outright. Lock it in!
7:10 PM: Kings at Rockets (-5.5), O/U: 230
Pick: Over 230
The Rockets have been consistently hitting this over shorthanded. With the return of John Wall, they will play even faster. Wall is similar to Westbrook, they speed up the game to get as many possessions as possible. This over cashes easily. This is one of the easiest ‘NBA Best Bets’ I can give you.
8:10: Pelicans (-5.5) at Thunder, O/U: 216
Pick: Under 216
I usually pick spreads in this article, but these lines are too hard to pass up, plus there have been a lot of blowouts to start the year and I don’t want to be on the wrong side of one of those. The Pelicans are playing slower than last year. They don’t shoot the 3 especially well so they are limited scoring wise. I’ve watched the Thunder play, they have no offense. They are relying on Lugentz Dort to make jump shots. This under should cash easily as both teams will struggle to pass 100.
Those are my 3 NBA Best Bets f0r December 31st. Here’s to hoping we bank together!
