Today is a tough day to bet the NBA. Multiple teams are playing back-to-back games. Luckily for us, this is an opportunity to gain betting value. This year some NBA teams are fantastic in playing back-to-back games, while others have struggled. Yesterday, we got the betting value with the Pheonix Suns and Devin Booker. Today they are playing back-to-back games. The NBA is all about betting the value plays when you find them. Here are the best NBA value plays for today.
Brooklyn Nets -2.5 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Phoenix won by 21 points last night. They are a hot team, but tonight they play the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are starting to heat up. That is where the betting value is in back-to-back games. The Suns are 1-1 in back-to-back games, but their win was against the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves are streaky and were on a losing streak during that time. In the other back-to-back they played, they lost to the Trail Blazers. The final score was 134-105. This game is an opportunity for bettors to get value from the Suns being tired from last night. All of their starters put in thirty-plus minutes, and they are playing against a Nets team with three days of rest. This game is a chance to catch the Suns ending their streak.
Washington Wizards Moneyline +260 at DraftKings Sportsbook
Neither of these teams played yesterday. They are both coming off plenty of rest, and they need it. These teams are both 2-3 in their last five games, after coming off hot starts to the season. The Washington Wizards are averaging 105 points per game, but their defense has been the seventh in the league this season. That is where the Mavericks have struggled. They are #17 in defense. Offensively, the Mavericks are averaging 104 points per game. They have an inferior offense and defense going into this matchup against the Wizards. That means this upset has betting value.
Christian Wood Over 17.5 Points -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook
This game is another opportunity to get back-to-back value. Charlotte played the Timberwolves last night, and now they travel to play Houston. Charlotte is heating up as a team, but one thing has remained consistent throughout the season. They are the worst defensive team in the league. They are giving up more points to opponents than any other team. Christian Wood averages 16 points per game, and this game is against the worst defense in the league. The Hornets are coming off of back-to-back games and will be tired. Wood will have additional opportunities to score easy baskets. BettingPros player prop bet cheat sheet has Wood scoring 22 points tonight. When using the player cheat sheet as a guide, we have been 3-1 on the year.
