With four games to get through on Wednesday, our team of NBA experts has found all the best bets you need to be with.
We begin our day with the battered and bruised Detroit Pistons taking on the Miami Heat from 11:00am (AEDT).
Miami @ Detroit
November 24th 11:00am
Detroit stole all the headlines after a wild brawl in its clash with Los Angeles Lakers and now must pay its attention to the visiting Miami Heat.
Isiah Stewart went berserk after being elbowed in the head by LeBron James in the Pistons loss to the Lakers on Monday and will miss the next two fixtures after being suspended for his wild reaction.
Miami, meanwhile, comes into this game with a much cooler head of steam and is on the hunt to bounce back from a 103-100 loss against Washington on Sunday.
Both teams come into this clash with very similar record against the spread when we look at the market.
The Heat sit 2-4 ATS when starting games as away favourites, while the Pistons sit 3-5 when starting outsiders at Little Caesars Arena.
Stewart’s omission is going to hurt the Pistons and the Heat should be able to improve at 2-4 record away favourites.

Leg 1: Miami Heat -9.5

La lakers @ new york
November 24th 11:30am
Back from injury and now he misses with a one-game suspension.
LeBron James will not feature in Los Angeles Lakers’ clash with New York on Wednesday morning after being outed for splitting open Isiah Stewart’s face during the thrilling come-from-behind win over the Pistons.
It might have been the spark that got the Lakers to actually play some inspiring basketball for pretty much the first time this season even if it was against the rebuilding Pistons.
Anthony Davis took onus of the situation alongside Russell Westbrook as they dealt with LeBron’s ejection.
But the Knicks are going to prove a much tougher challenge.
New York stumbled against Chicago on Monday to go down 109-103 despite leading at the final change but have definitely been in better form than the Lakers this season to sit seventh in the East, while the visitors struggle to land in the guaranteed playoff spots for the time being.
That being said, the Knicks have a poor record against the spread as home favourites with a 3-6 overall season tally.
The Lakers 2-2 record ATS as away underdogs might just very well be improved upon here.
Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Lakers +3.5 at $1.91
Denver @ Portland
november 24th 2:00pm
The Denver Nuggets are on the road to Oregon as they attempt to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat when they take on the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Nuggets are going through their worst period of the season, which is part due to Nikola Jokic missing the last two games.
It is clear the result of this match will almost rely solely on the availability of the Joker.
The Trail Blazers, on the other hand, have won their last three fixtures and bring to an end their four-game homestand in this match.
Denver has done poorly against the spread when heading into away games as the outsider with a 2-4 losing record.
If Jokic is to miss again expect the line to blow out into the 8 to 10-point range.
This might turn into a rout as we saw in the Nuggets most recent loss against Phoenix.
Suggested Bet: Portland -5.5 at $1.91
dallas @ la clippers
november 24th 2:30pm
Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks face off for the second of their consecutive matches at Staples Center.
It was a 97-91 result in favour of the Clippers on Monday as the Mavericks were left to pick up the pieces following a poor third stanza where it only managed 15 points to the Clippers 25.
The drop off is what would ultimately cost the Mavericks and with Paul George continuing to turn it on it is no wonder the Clippers are favourites to get the job done again.
If the Mavericks can up the anti from three-point range they might give themselves a chance to reverse the result, but we want to go with winning momentum here..
Suggested Bet: Minnesota -1.5 at $1.90
