NBA Week 7 Preview

Entering NBA week 7 there have been plenty of things to get excited about in the previous one. Probably one of the things that are on everyone’s radar is the return of the champions. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks may have been AWOL for the start of the season. But are now laser locked to contend for the top of the East once again. 

The West is still locked in a battle between the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are the hottest team in the league right now, pun not intended. But Steph Curry and the Warriors are not ready to relinquish their claim for the top team in the NBA. 

Follow our NBA betting tips for Week 7 matchups. If you would like to know more about betting on the Week 7 of NBA action, check out our news section

Best Matchups of Week 7

Like every week we have excluded a few matches that jump off the page compared to the rest. You can read our latest NBA betting tips about them and also view the NBA game of the week, which promises to be a spectacular one. 

Golden State Warriors @ Phoenix Suns

Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

We travel to sunny Arizona for our NBA game of the week. The two best teams of the NBA face each other as the Warriors go on the road to play the Suns. The two teams are not only the best in the NBA and the West. They are also the hottest teams in the league based on win streaks. 

The Phoenix Suns are riding a 17-game win streak, the longest one in the NBA at the present moment. Chris Paul and Devin Booker are the best right-left punch combo in the league with Paul providing the assist and the defence and Booker adding points and splashing threes. 

But reigning three is Steph Curry’s speciality. Curry is the league’s top scorer and the best three-point shot maker. The Warriors have lost only two games this season as opposed to three that the Suns have lost. Somebody will add another loss on Tuesday, and the only question that remains is who. 

Los Angeles Clippers @ Los Angeles Lakers

Friday, December 3rd, 2021

We don’t get many hometime rivalries in today’s NBA. But the one that even casual fans are aware of is the game between the Lakes and the Clippers. The Lakers have been traditionally the better side, but the Clippers have been putting on an effort with their recent success that made this hometown derby a spectacle to watch. 

The Clippers have been hot and cold this season. Kawhi Leonard is still out and there is no word yet on when we can expect his return. During his absence, Paul George has been putting in the work and carried the Clippers on his back. Unfortunately, he does not get adequate support from his teammates 

The Lakers have created a very respectable team for their 2021/2022 NBA title conquest. But things looked much better on paper than on the court. Russ Westbrook and Anthony Davis are putting stellar numbers. However, LeBron James is starting to show his age as injuries have started to pile up and he has been out for quite a few of the Lakers’ games. Their chemistry has to improve if they are to earn a playoff berth by April. 

Miami Heat @ Milwkague Bucks

Saturday, December 4th, 2021

After starting the season with a losing record, mainly due to Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez’s absences, the Bucks managed to get on a seven-game win streak. This allowed them to get back in the top of the East and in playoff contention. Giannis Antetokounmpo is at the top of both the scoring and rebounding charts, while his game in the paint is as exceptional as it ever was. 

The Heat are still in the top of the East, one game behind the Nets and one game in front of the Bucks. However, things might start to go sour for Miami this week as injuries to Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, and Markieff Morris might start to catch up to them. 

NBA Betting Tips 2021/2022: Season Preview

Time for the new NBA season and all the teams have only one idea in mind: topple the Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo, the defending champions.

In 2021/22, the quality in the NBA will again be exceptional and each team will be able to count on one or more stars in their title pursuit. While American stars like Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Stephen Curry or Damian Lillard should still be at the forefront, many eyes will be on the performances of the Slovenian Luka Doncic, the Serbian Nikola Jokic and the Cameroonian Joel Embiid who are dreaming of a first team title in the NBA.

At the beginning of this new season the favourites have already been clearly identified but all the observers will be on the lookout for a team to emerge that could be a danger to the biggest teams during the playoffs.

NBA Betting Tips 2021/2022: Favourites for the title and odds

For this season, bookmakers are placing the Brooklyn Nets and their trio of Durant-Irving-Harden as favourites with odds of 3.50. If the Nets can avoid injuries, they should be in with a chance of success.

The same can be said for the armada of the Los Angeles Lakers with the icon LeBron James. The odds of 4.50 are logical as this team has been strengthened by the arrivals of Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony in particular.

The defending champions Milwaukee Bucks, with their Greek giant and his lieutenants Middleton and Holiday, appear among the favourites once more with odds of 9.50. Can they retain their crown?

After several unremarkable seasons, the big return of the Golden State Warriors (odds of 13) is expected. The Warriors will be counting on their iconic duo S.Curry-K.Thompson.

Then there are some outsiders such as the Utah Jazz of the Gobert-Mitchell duo (odds of 16), the Clippers of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Nicolas Batum (17), the Phoenix Suns of Devin Booker (17) and the Denver Nuggets of the MVP Nikola Jokic (20).

Finally, the Philadelphia 76ers with Embiid, Simmons and Drummond are lying in wait (21), as are the Miami Heat (24) and the Dallas Mavericks of the prodigy Luka Doncic (30).

NBA Betting Stats

If you are serious about your NBA betting, it’s important to understand the biases reflected in NBA betting markets. Examining a large sample size of NBA stats can help you identify betting angles other bettors and NBA tipsters are missing. In this section we will take a look at NBA stats dating back to the 2007 season.

Straight Up Win-Loss NBA Stats

The table below displays the win-loss percentages for NBA teams across a number of situations since the 2007 NBA season. We can see that home teams almost 60% of games in the NBA which is one of the highest home advantages in American sports.

An important factor when betting on the NBA is rest. Do we see any advantage for teams playing with more rest than their opponents? Since the 2007 NBA season we can see that when a team is playing with an advantage in days rests, they win almost 56% of games played. When betting on the NBA, it’s important to account for any significant advantage in rest for one team over another.

Home Teams 59.5% 40.5%
Away Teams 40.5% 59.5%
Favourites 69.1% 30.9%
Underdogs 30.9% 69.1%
Home Favourites 71.0% 29.0%
Home Underdogs 35.1% 64.9%
Away Favourites 64.9% 35.1%
Away Underdogs 29.0% 71.0%
After A Win 53.9% 46.1%
After A Loss 46.0% 54.0%
After 1 Days Rest 51.6% 48.4%
After 2 or 3 Days Rest 52.0% 48.0%
After 4 or More Days Rest 51.0% 49.0%
With More Rest 55.5% 44.5%

NBA Stats Against The Spread

The most popular way to bet on the NBA is to bet against the spread. As we can see from the data below, there has been no clear advantage for teams playing across a range of situations since the 2007 season. While we saw that teams playing with an advantage in rest won almost 56% of games played, that advantage was not mirrored when playing against the market, in which case such teams covered the spread just under 50% of the time.

Home Teams 49.6% 50.4%
Away Teams 50.4% 49.6%
Favourites 50.2% 49.8%
Underdogs 49.8% 50.2%
Home Favourites 49.8% 50.2%
Home Underdogs 49.1% 50.9%
Away Favourites 50.9% 49.1%
Away Underdogs 50.2% 49.8%
After A Win 49.4% 50.6%
After A Loss 50.6% 49.4%
After 1 Days Rest 50.2% 49.8%
After 2 or 3 Days Rest 49.7% 50.3%
After 4 or More Days Rest 49.4% 50.6%
With More Rest 49.6% 50.4%

Over Under NBA Betting Stats

Points totals in the NBA can vary between south of 180 points to north of 240 points depending on the playing styles of the teams involved. Since the 2007 NBA season we can see that there has been a slight advantage for bettors who have bet the Under, particularly in Division and Playoff games, in which almost 52% of games ended going under the total.

Conference Games 49.4% 50.6%
Division Games 48.3% 51.7%
Playoff Games 48.3% 51.7%
Non Conference Games 49.2% 50.8%
Non Division Games 49.6% 50.4%
Regular Season Games 49.4% 50.6%

Bet On The NBA

If you intend to bet on NBA games, it’s worthwhile knowing a little about the sport itself. Remember, when you bet on NBA games, be sure to use our free NBA betting tips!

Basketball is the most modern major sport, having only been invented in 1891. Unlike American football, baseball and ice hockey, it didn’t have its origins in another, much older sport. When Canadian Phys Ed teacher James Naismith invented basketball, it was a completely original, unique idea.

Because of this, basketball has always had a young, “hip” edge to it, and the NBA is hipness personified. The team behind the global promotion of the NBA have been doing an excellent job for a long time, because star players from Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson through to Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are as well-known as any celebrity.

NBA teams play 82 regular season games, so even before the excitement of the playoffs and the NBA Finals, there is an abundance of weekly games to bet on, and plenty of bettingexpert’s free NBA betting tips to take full advantage of!

When consistently betting on any sport it is advisable to employ a sports betting strategy. The bettingexpert Academy can help with forming a betting strategy. Bettingexpert’s NBA Betting Guide is detailed and concise, and you will find everything you need to improve your NBA betting by checking it out.

Here are a few pointers from our NBA betting guide:

  • Only Bet When There’s Value – It’s common-sense, yet many forget the most basic rule in sports betting: Don’t waste money on bets that aren’t likely to come off, or don’t earn you anything if they do.
  • Specialise – NBA offers a multitude of betting markets. Find out what market you enjoy the most and have the most success with, and focus your attention on it.
  • Have Several Bookmaker Accounts – Not all bookies will offer the best odds for your bet, having several accounts ensures you get the most bang for your buck.
  • Keep A Record – Maintaining a record of your prior wagers enables you to see where you might have gone wrong, and also allows you to get a clear picture of what markets you excel at.

More specific, NBA related advice includes

Do Your Preseason Research

The more you know about the sport of NBA, the luckier you will become in your NBA betting. Preseason, find out which teams have strengthened their squads and which have lost key players. There is usually a buzz around specific teams long before a ball has been pitched, and this will often be an insight into early success on the field and maybe even throughout the season.

Check Head-to-Head Matchups

One of the best ways of forecasting a result is by examining their previous Head-to-Head matches. By seeing the previous six results between two teams that are scheduled to meet, one can often form a solid opinion as to the outcome of their latest meeting.

Learn To Spot The Upset

Every NBA league team will play a ton of games during the course of a season. For example, during the regular season in the NBA teams will play 82 games. Even teams that win their divisions and progress to the playoffs lose a lot of matches, around 50 on average. Top NBA teams are pretty much favourites every time they play, yet they will still lose one in three of their games, so picking those games and backing the other team to pull off the upset will prove highly lucrative.

Home & Away

One might think that it would always be beneficial for a team to play at their home stadium, but that’s not always the case. A sequence of home defeats can turn the most loyal fan base into a baying mob, and when that happens, the bused team will actually start to play better NBA in away stadiums.

If you would like to know more, visit the bettingexpert Academy and read our basketball betting guide.

Bookmakers For Betting On NBA

It wasn’t always the case, but these days it’s not too hard to find a top online bookmaker who caters in-depth for fans of NBA betting, and comes armed with expert NBA betting tips.
When choosing your online bookmaker try and stick to the well-established names you are familiar with, and be sure that your bookmaker provides these four key elements:

  • Consistently Competitive Odds
  • A Wide Range Of Betting Markets
  • All Major Competitions Covered
  • Extensive In-Play Betting Markets

In-play betting has really caught on in the past few years, and enables you to bet on the action during the course of the game, which only adds to the excitement. Some bookmakers now provide Live-Streaming for many sports including NBA, which will also add to the whole in-play betting experience.

To find the ideal bookmaker for your NBA betting, be sure to read our detailed bookmaker reviews.
