We made it three best bet wins in a row on Thursday with the Knicks taking care of business on the road against the Hawks. That win takes our tally to 15-8 and +$566 in 23 days if you’re a $100 punter. We now look towards the four-game slate on offer for NBA Friday and provide a preview and our best play of the day. Good luck to all following!
Best Best Thursday November 8th
Milwaukee Bucks at Golden State Warriors (Oracle Arena – 7pm ET)
Our best bet for a small Friday slate comes from the Milwaukee Bucks at Golden State Warriors match-up. This one promises to be an absolute cracking game with both teams near or at the top of their respective conferences. The Bucks will be looking to make a statement in their one and only trip to Oracle, but the Warriors will be keen to let them know why they’re the back-to-back defending champions.
This game will be a great one, there’s no doubt about that, but our focus isn’t on the head-to-head duel, it’s on Giannis Antetokounmpo AKA The Greak Freak and his pursuit in surpassing his points total overs.
Giannis is enjoying a terrific season to date and is one of the main reasons why the Bucks find themselves in second position in the Eastern Conference with an 8-2 record. He’s averaging an impressive 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists through his nine appearances and could easily have better numbers than that if his Bucks hadn’t blown out their opposition so many times this season.
We already liked Giannis’ Overs against the Warriors purely on the fact that it’s going to be a high scoring affair that will naturally inflate everyone’s numbers. However, the late news is that Warrior all-star and former DPOY Draymond Green will miss this clash, which makes Giannis’ Overs so much more attainable. The Warriors front-court is thin at the best of times, but Green’s out leaves them without any true rim protection. We expect Giannis to lead the Bucks close to a victory on the road, while surpassing his 26.5 point line.
Pick: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 26.5 Points – $1.91 at Sportsbet
