NBA Best Bets For Thursday 20th October 2022

NBA Best Bet 1: Clippers -5.5

The Clippers begin their campaign this year with the challenge of LeBron James and the Lakers, who struggled to lay a hand on the Warriors during their first game of the season.

We’ve backed the Clippers -5.5 tonight, and with Kawhi Leonard back for the Clippers they could run riot. Leonard was sidelined for the entire 2021/22 season with a torn ACL however the prolific scoring 31-year-old makes his return to the court on Tuesday night with expectations high.

The head to head over the past seven games does not look good for the Lakers, with the 76ers winning their last seven games against their local rivals.

NBA Best Bet 2: Milwaukee Bucks to win

The 76ers come into the clash on Thursday night fresh off the back of a season opening loss to the Celtics on Tuesday. The Bucks are one of the favourites for the championship this year (+650), and at +150 to win on Tuesday night, we have picked the Wisconsin side to come out on top in what should be a close affair.

The scoreline may have suggested a close match on Tuesday night, as the Celtics came out on top 126-117, however giving away 35 points to both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum does not bode well for the Sixers defence after opening night.
