Thunder, Warriors Among The Best Bets For NBA Christmas Day Action

Posted by on 12/24/2015 3:07:33 AM

NBA fans will get the opportunity to celebrate Christmas Day with a full slate of basketball action as there are five games on the schedule for this Friday beginning in the afternoon. Christmas can be a busy time of the year for most sports fans but with the association going back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back there will be plenty of opportunities to cash in and make some serious coin. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for Friday’s Christmas Day NBA action.

Chicago Bulls @ Oklahoma City Thunder

Friday, 2:30 PM ET

The Bulls won’t be happy about having to travel across the country to spend Christmas Day in Oklahoma City and that should serve as motivation but they have a 4-6 record on the road this season and will be in tough against one of the most dominant teams in the NBA. Russell Westbrook is playing at an elite level while teaming with a healthy Kevin Durant so don’t expect the Thunder to stumble with the entire country watching them as they follow up the New Orleans Pelicans and Miami Heat as the second game in the Christmas extravaganza around the association.

Pick: Thunder

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Golden State Warriors

Friday, 5:00 PM ET

There has been a lot of talk about the Cavaliers’ motivation to send Golden State a message in this game and while the Warriors are no longer undefeated we don’t expect them to let off one bit in this game. One of the biggest motivational factors for Golden State during their perfect run was the lack of respect they received when they beat Cleveland in the NBA Finals and with all of the talk about how the Cavaliers are destined to avenge that series loss there is a good chance the Warriors will be pretty pumped up to send the entire league a message with a dominant win in front of their home fans.

Pick: Warriors

San Antonio Spurs @ Houston Rockets

Friday, 8:00 PM ET

Golden State’s dominance has taken a lot of the attention away from just how good the Spurs have been through the first couple of months of the season but they have lost just five times this season and would be talked about a lot more if it wasn’t for the Warriors. Meanwhile, the Rockets’ terrible start cost Kevin McHale his job as the team’s head coach and while they have played better basketball of late they still face an uphill climb if they are going to contend with the top teams in the Western Conference this season. San Antonio won’t be far from home in this game and unlike the Bulls and Cavaliers they will find a way to win while spending Christmas Day on the road this season.

Pick: Spurs

Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers

Friday, 10:30 PM ET

The Clippers and Lakers both have the good fortune of being home for the holidays but one of those teams is competing for a top seed in the Western Conference while the other is purposely tanking to make sure it doesn’t lose its protected first round pick. Kobe Bryant is going to shoot any better because it’s Christmas Day and as long as he continues to jack up shots he shouldn’t be taking the Lakers are going to continue to struggle. There could very well be a lot of money on this game as bettors try to make up for losses earlier in the day but it’s hard to imagine a situation where the Clippers don’t take care of business and win this game.

Pick: Clippers
