NBA Picks November 23

NBA Wednesday pits 24 of the league's 30 teams against each other in 12 exciting matchups! With Thursday being a league-wide day off, expect some competitive outings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves look to continue their win streak when they take on the surging Indiana Pacers. On the second leg of a back-to-back, the Brooklyn Nets face off against the ailing Toronto Raptors. And the shorthanded Denver Nuggets look to earn a win over the upstart Oklahoma City Thunder!

Let's take a look at the bets!

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Indiana Pacers

When: 7:00 PM EST

TeamSpreadTotalMoney
Minnesota Timberwolves+1.0 (-115)O 235.0 (-110)-110
Indiana Pacers-1.0 (-105)U 235.0 (-110)-110

Spread: Indiana Pacers -1.0 (-105) @ bet365

The Minnesota Timberwolves begin a two-game road trip off the back of a four-game winning streak. The Indiana Pacers are also on fire as of late, winning their last five games.

The Indiana Pacers have vaulted up the Eastern Conference standings, now sitting fourth in the East off the strength of their fifth-ranked scoring offence (116.8 points per game). The Minnesota Timberwolves have an excellent interior defence, 6th in the league at 50.6% two-point field goal efficiency allowed, that they'll pit against Indiana's red-hot offence.

It'll be a tight affair when the teams face off, but Indiana's outside shooting should give them the edge.

Brooklyn Nets @ Toronto Raptors

When: 7:30 PM EST

TeamSpreadTotalMoney
Brooklyn Nets+2.0 (-110)O 222.0 (-110)+110  
Toronto Raptors-2.0 (-110)U 222.0 (-110)-130

The Brooklyn Nets enter this match after falling to another Eastern Conference rival last night. The Toronto Raptors will be motivated and well-rested, entering this game off of a buzzer-beating loss in their last match.

The Toronto Raptors are one of the league's most intense defensive teams, forcing 17.5 turnovers per game - second most in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets will challenge that with their excellent scoring efficiency, averaging 48.5% shooting per game - third in the NBA.

The Nets may be on the second leg of a back-to-back versus the Raptors' three days of rest, but given Toronto's limited roster the Nets should have the advantage and earn themselves a victory.

Denver Nuggets @ Oklahoma City Thunder

When: 8:00 PM EST

TeamSpreadTotalMoney
Denver Nuggets-2 (-107)O 229.0 (-107)-130
Oklahoma City Thunder+2 (-107) U 229.0 (-107) +110

Moneyline: Oklahoma City Thunder (+110) @ PointsBet

The Denver Nuggets have lost two of their last three games when they enter this match. The Oklahoma City Thunder are coming off of two losses of their own, now falling to 12th in the Western Conference.

Despite leveling out from their hot start, the Oklahoma City Thunder still boast one of the league's fastest paces (102.0, 3rd in the NBA) and the league's sixth-best scoring offense (116.4). Despite missing seven players in their last game, the Nuggets earned a win off the back of a gritty rebounding effort.

As things stand, the Nuggets don't look to be able to maintain their play from the last game - especially with so many key pieces missing. Expect the Thunder to earn a win, but don't fear flipping your pick should Jokic, Murray, and Gordon suddenly become available.
