NBA Weekly Basketball Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions: Dec. 30

While it would be really hard to deny that Golden State is not the best team in the league on the court, bettors have been on a bumpy ride with this team for most of December. It failed to cover as a 6.5-point home favorite against the Cavaliers and going back to Dec. 11 the Warriors are just 3-3-1 against the spread. They will close-out 2015 with road games against Dallas and Houston before opening-up the New Year at home against Denver on Jan. 2.

The team with the second-best SU record in the NBA as of Tuesday’s action is the San Antonio Spurs at 27-6. They have also been a profitable team to wager on with 5Dimes Sportsbook at 22-11 ATS. The Spurs have failed to cover in two of their last three games, but going back to a 109-87 romp over the Los Angeles Lakers as 15-point home favorites on Dec. 11, they are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games. They will close-out 2015 on Wednesday night as 14.5-point home favorites against Phoenix.

The top betting team in the NBA has been somewhat of a surprise with the Orlando Magic going 18-13 SU with a highly profitable 22-9 record ATS. They are now 6-2 both SU and ATS in their last eight games following a 104-89 victory against New Orleans this past Monday as four-point home favorites. They will face Brooklyn at home on Wednesday night as eight-point favorites on 5Dimes’ current NBA betting odds before travelling to Washington for a New Year’s Day matchup against the Wizards.

If you are looking for a hot team to ride into the New Year, then the Boston Celtics could be a good choice as 12.5-point home favorites for Wednesday night’s game against the Lakers. Following a 100-91 victory over New York this past Sunday as 8.5-point favorites at home, the Celtics have won their last four games both SU and ATS. They are now 18-13 SU with an 18-12-1 record ATS.
