We kick off Week 7 with only four bettable games for us in Australia, so let’s try to find some value here.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Indiana Pacers

Indiana struggled for a while but has been playing high-level basketball the last week.

The Bucks, winners of six straight, could be ready for a letdown, so I think Indiana can cover the +2.0 on TAB.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Pacers +2.0

Sacramento Kings @ Memphis Grizzlies

This is a tough one. Both teams are missing key players in Ja Morant, Harrison Barnes, and Richaun Holmes

The spread is moving toward the Kings side and I don’t fully agree with that, but I don’t want to bet it. But, I do want the under 22.5 points on Sportsbet for $1.93. 

I also think Steven Adams’ rebound numbers are too low at 6.5 for $1.71 on Sportsbet. Adams is inconsistent but is averaging 7.7 rebounds this season, but the most important part is that he doesn’t have to face Holmes, which should help boost the numbers.

Lastly, with Morant out, Desmond Bane is going to play some point guard. His assists prop is 2.5. The over is priced at $1.69 on Sportsbet and he should comfortably head over that.

Best bet game total - under 222.5

Best bet player rebounds - Adams over 6.5

Best bet player assists - Bane over 2.5

Detroit Pistons @ Los Angeles Lakers

We all know what happened last time they played with the LeBron James-Isaiah Stewart incident, but there are a few areas to look at in this game for betting. 

For a start, the Lakers are not playing well enough to feel any confidence in them winning by more than 10.5 points. 

So I’ll take the Pistons +10.5. I also don’t buy into revenge games, but Isaiah Stewart’s points total sits at 7.5 for $2.05 to hit over on Sportsbet. That is too juicy for me to pass up.

Best bet handicap - Pistons +10.5

Best bet player points - Stewart over 7.5

Season to date
