We managed to start the New Year off with a bang, as our 7/1 treble landed yesterday, and hopefully, we can follow that up with another winner here. We've selected our best picks for the upcoming NBA matches.

NBA Betting Tips

  • Bucks @ Pacers - Bucks (-3.5) @ 10/11
  • Bulls @ Knicks - Knicks (-9.5) @ 10/11
  • Heat @ Lakers - Heat (+6.5) @ 10/11

Treble pays 5.95/1

Bucks @ Pacers - Bucks (-3.5) @ 10/11

Milwaukee and Indiana meet for the second time in as many games, with the Pacers looking for a second win over the Bucks.

Indiana suffered a hangover after losing the In-Season Tournament final, dropping four of their next five, but they've recently got back on track and they come into this game on a four-game winning streak.

Tyrese Haliburton has been immense for the Pacers during that stretch, and he'll take some stopping, but Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 46.3 points in four matchups against Indiana. He scored 54 points in the 126-124 Pacers win on November 9 and a career-high 64 points in the Milwaukee triumph on December 13.

I think the 'Greek Freak' will lead Milwaukee to a win here.

Bulls @ Knicks - Knicks (-9.5) @ 10/11

The Bulls will play the second game of a back-to-back here, after suffering a double-digit loss at Philadelphia last night.

Chicago remain without Zach LaVine due to injury, but Lonzo Ball has started running again after missing the last two seasons with a knee problem.

The Knicks recently traded for London-born OG Anunoby from the Toronto Raptors, and his debut for New York couldn't have gone much better, collecting 17 points in total and playing some excellent defense down the stretch.

New York are the more rested team here, and they're on a run of five wins in six games at Madison Square Garden.

Heat @ Lakers - Heat (+6.5) @ 10/11

Both sides will be comparing injury notes when they meet at the Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday night.

Jimmy Butler remains absent for Miami due to a foot injury, and while the Lakers' dynamic duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis have remained relatively healthy this season, their supporting cast have dealt with several bumps and bruises.

Los Angeles have struggled somewhat after they won the In-Season Tournament, going 2-9 since beating Indiana on December 10. Even despite the injury to Butler, Miami look a better team than the Lakers at the moment, so that's who I'm backing here.
