Disappointing to end the year going 2-3, but we attack 2022 with a positive attitude. Let’s hit some best bets.

Miami Heat @ Sacramento Kings

I will always to drawn to the Kings games. They seem to be given too much credit and it’s happening here again, where they are only 3.5 point underdogs against Miami, who has Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, and Tyler Herro all playing. The Heat should cover.

Best bet handicap - Heat -3.5

Phoenix Suns @ Charlotte Hornets

The Suns are lacking in big men, but against the Hornets, that usually isn’t a worry, so it is strange to see Phoenix as only 2.5 point favourites. 

I like them to cover. Also, Landry Shamet, who is playing a regular role, has a points line of 6.5 on TAB. 

Going over that pays $1.75 and I think he clears it easily. Sticking with Shamet, his assist line of 1.5 also has interest. TAB is paying $2.50 for him to go over.

Best bet Handicap - Suns -2.5

Best bet player points - Shamet over 6.5

Best bet player assists - Shamet over 1.5

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Los Angeles Lakers

LeBron James is playing at an unbelievable level at the moment. So, we can use that to our advantage and look at his lines. 

The rebound number at 10.5, just feels way too high for now. He has gone over for three straight, but his season numbers are much lower and I think the streak gets broken today against the Wolves. 

Under pays $1.78 on Sportsbet

Best bet: Player rebounds - James under 10.5
