NBA Thanksgiving Betting Preview

The NBA season is off to a good start as many teams are starting to assert their dominance on the league. Here are a couple of game previews for those who enjoy betting on basketball.

Toronto Raptors vs. Charlotte Bobcats

The Bobcats are on a hot streak after winning four of their last five games. They are already on a roll and are about to surpass their win total from their disappointing 2011-2012 season. Since their opening game, they have lost only one and that was to Memphis last Saturday. The team has come a long way since their abysmal .106 win percentage last year, and should fare well against the struggling Toronto Raptors.

The Bobcats have kept their opponents at 99 points or less and have a good record against the Raptors. Last season, their few wins came against Toronto as they beat twice in a row before the end of the regular season.

The Raptors are 3-8 so far this season and are coming off a loss in Philadelphia. On the bright side, Kyle Lowry played in their last game and scored 13 points after missing six games. However, it was not enough to get the win. Offensively the Raptors are not horrible, it’s on the defense where they need to improve. They are allowing their opponents to successfully score on 40 percent of their shots.

Many online betting sites have the Bobcats listed as a 2 point favorite, with that close a score the game could go either way.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat

The Heat are looking to remain perfect at home as they will play the Bucks at home tonight. The defending NBA Champions have gotten off to a great start, but the Bucks could look to ruin their home winning streak. The Bucks have won four out of five time in Miami, so history is on their side tonight. However, the Bucks lost their last game against the Bobcats, even though they were considered the favorites by some online sports books. The score went up over 200 points, making the game a great score for many over bettors.

Even though the Heat will be missing Dwyane Wade for a second game in a row, Chris Bosh has been great, scoring a team high 24 points in the Heat’s last game. Meanwhile, a sick LeBron James fought off his flu to score 21 points. The team will be looking to James again tonight as he is known to average 29.6 points against Milwaukee.

Currently the Heat are listed as the 9.5 point favorite against the Bucks according to many sports book reviews. The game is listed to go up to 190 points, but with these two high scoring teams, it could possibly go over 200.
