2019-20 NBA Betting Tips: Thursday 28th November

November 27th 2019, 8:35pm, By: Jake Smit

There’s a monster 14-game slate of NBA on this Thursday, the 28th of November! All but two of the 30 teams in the association will be taking to the courts, which should make for a very exciting day of basketball. Action kicks off 11am AEDT!

As usual, we have a full preview and betting tips for the key games of the day below.

NBA Betting Tips Thursday 28th November

Sacramento Kings @ Philadelphia 76ers (11am AEDT)

The Kings got their season off to a very poor start with injuries playing a major part, however, they’ve since found some better form to win seven of their last 11 games. Buddy Hield was on fire last time out against the Celtics with 11 triples, while Harrison Barnes has hit his straps with 18+ points in each of his last three games.

The Sixers have made the Wells Fargo Center a fortress in recent times and are 7-0 there this season. They’re far better at home than they are on the road (4-6), which is why they’re the clear favourites to win this matchup. The Sixers four-game winning streak came to an end last time out in Toronto, so they’ll be looking to bounce back with a win against inferior opposition on Thursday.

Though we feel the Sixers will win comfortably, it’s Joel Embiid’s points line that has our interest. The big man had an absolute stinker last time out going for 0 points in 32 minutes and has been the brunt of a lot of jokes as a result. Embiid certainly isn’t a guy that likes to be made fun of, so we expect him to be ultra-aggressive straight out of the blocks in this one and cruise past his 24.5 line. 

New York Knicks @ Toronto Raptors (11:30am AEDT)

The Knicks haven’t been quite as bad as we thought they’d be, but they’re still making up the numbers in a weak Eastern Conference. They’re currently sitting in last with a 4-13 record and are 1-7 on the road with their sole win coming against the Mavericks a couple of weeks ago. Rookie RJ Barrett has been a bright spot for the Knicks, while Marcus Morris has been handling a lot of the scoring load.

The Raptors have surprised a few with their great start to the season despite losing Kawhi Leonard in free agency. The Raptors held off the Sixers in their last outing, which made it four wins on the spin for the defending champs. They’ve been extremely hard to handle on their home deck where they are 7-0 this season, compared to 5-4 in road games.

The Knicks are a bad team and only get worse when they hit the road. We expect them to be absolutely no match for the champs who are yet to taste defeat in Toronto this season. The 10.5-point line may seem a bit dangerous, but this thing should be over by half time in our opinion.

OKC Thunder @ Portland Trail Blazers (12pm AEDT)

The Thunder were lucky to avoid an embarrassing loss to the Warriors last time out, narrowly escaping by three points after trailing by double digits on multiple occasions. Chris Paul was the clutch man with a couple of three-pointers, continuing to show his worth at the tender age of 34. Despite the win, the Thunder have been underwhelming this season with six wins from 16 outings.

The Trail Blazers recorded a much-needed win in their most recent game against the Bulls. Carmelo Anthony was superb with 25 points, leading the Blazers to an easy 23-point victory. That win ended a four-game losing streak and takes the Blazers record to 6-12 on the season, which is far worse than we all expected them to be at after a month of action.

The Blazers have been poor this season, but they’ve had a tough schedule playing just five of their 18 games at home. We can see them building momentum from their win last time out and proving too strong for the Thunder who are 1-6 on the road, which is the worst of any Western Conference team this season.
