Season Recap: 14-5
Combined with Player Props, we are 33-16, so don’t forget to check out the player props article at the bottom of this one. Let’s ride with our NBA Best Bets for January 2nd.
7:10: Hornets at Sixers (-9.5), O/U: 213.5
Pick: Under 213.5
The Sixers are one of the best defensive teams in the league. The Hornets already struggle to score the ball, and now they are on the second night of a back to back which usually results in poorer shooting percentages. The 76ers will lock down the Hornets and hold them below 100 points, helping cash this under bet.
7:40 PM: Cavaliers at Hawks (-6.5), O/U: 233
The Hawks are a good team. Coming off a big victory over the Nets, I see the Hawks keeping the momentum going. The Cavs are on a two game losing streak, losing to the Knicks and Pacers. The Hawks are the better, deeper team. They should have no trouble taking care of business and beating these Cavs by 10+.
7:40 PM: Raptors (-1.5) at Pelicans, O/U: 212.5
If you read my player prop article, you know I am high on Pascal Siakam tonight. The Raptors are off to a 1-3 and I don’t see them dropping to 1-4. They are the better team in this scenario and I am banking on them getting it together and taking care of the Pelicans.
Those are my 3 NBA Best Bets for January 2nd. Here’s to hoping we bank together this New Year!
