NBA Bets of the Day 11/29/21

Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets (8:00 p.m. ET)

Best Bet: Thunder +2.5 (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 1.0 units

We have a showdown between two of the NBA’s worst teams with the Oklahoma City Thunder traveling to take on the Houston Rockets on Monday night. Oklahoma City comes into this contest with a 6-13 record (12th in the Western Conference) while Houston has a putrid 3-16 record, which is good enough for last place in the entire NBA.

The shocking part is that two of the three wins that the Rockets have secured have come in their past two games against two formidable teams in the Charlotte Hornets and the Chicago Bulls. Due to their recent victories over talented teams in the Eastern Conference, Houston comes into Monday’s game as the favorites over Oklahoma City.

The Thunder have been covering often this season, sporting an impressive 13-6 record against the spread. They’ve also covered in six straight games overall and all of their last six road games.

For the Rockets, they are 3-6 ATS in their last nine contests. And when they play at home this season, they’ve gone a below-average 3-5 ATS, giving the edge to the Thunder.

The return of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander gives a major boost to Oklahoma City in this game, where they are looking to end a five-game skid.

While it’s hard to envision the Rockets extending their winning streak to three games, even with Kevin Porter Jr. improving his play, the absence of rookie Jalen Green doesn’t help their chances.

Cleveland Cavaliers at Dallas Mavericks (8:30 p.m. ET)

Best Bet: Cavaliers +6.5 (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 1.0 units

Another underdog team that I’m liking on this slate of games is the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers have been more competitive than most people expected this season and they are getting healthier with the return of rookie Evan Mobley, Kevin Love, and Lauri Markkanen in the past week.

There aren’t many better teams than Cleveland when it comes to covering the spread this season. In their first 20 games, the Cavaliers are 14-5-1 ATS, keeping most of their games close.

Cleveland also owns an impressive 6-2-1 record ATS as the road team this season while the Dallas Mavericks are only 3-5 ATS as the home team. And if you go back to last season, the Mavericks are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home matchups.

I believe the Cavaliers have a massive edge in the paint with the duo of Jarrett Allen and Mobley. The improved play of Darius Garland has also aided Cleveland in being able to replace the production left behind by Collin Sexton, who will be out the rest of the season with a knee ailment.

Even with Luka Doncic returning recently for the Mavericks, we just need the Cavaliers to keep this competitive. Only two of Cleveland’s past five losses have come by seven or more points this season.

Denver Nuggets at Miami Heat (7:30 p.m. ET)

Best Bet: Over 207.5 Points (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 1.0 units

The last time we saw the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat square off, it was a physical matchup that led to a scuffle between Markieff Morris and Nikola Jokic. Other antics took place between the Morris brothers and the Jokic brothers following the matchup that seemed like it was straight out of a WWE script.

Jokic has missed four consecutive games with a wrist injury and is questionable to play on Monday night. Denver has struggled recently, losing six straight games, with all but one of them coming by double-digits.

As for the Heat, they’ve won six out of their last eight, including a comeback win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. While Jokic’s return would help this game see more scoring, I believe both teams can get us to 208-plus points on Monday night.

We will also need to monitor the statuses of Jimmy Butler (tailbone) and Tyler Herro (questionable), as both of them are also questionable. I might side with the Under if all three of Jokic, Butler, and Herro are out in this contest.

The Over is 6-1 in Denver’s last seven games compared to Miami hitting the Over in nine of their last 12 games. While the Nuggets and the Heat have the second-lowest total of Monday’s slate — likely due to both teams playing at slow paces — they are both efficient teams that have enough firepower (if mostly healthy) to score points in bunches.
