NBA Best Bets Friday, Dec. 16

Fred VanVleet over 19.5 points vs. Nets (-114)

VanVleet is finally starting to find his shot, and he's being relied upon more with OG Anunoby sidelined. With Anunoby (plus Precious Achiuwa and Otto Porter) off the floor, FVV sees a 7.4% usage increase, leading to 19.1 field-goal attempts per 36 minutes. This game also projects to be close, so he should stay involved the whole time.

Philadelphia 76ers over 118.5 points versus the Golden State Warriors (+140)

The 76ers have scored at least 123 points in their last four games. The Warriors will be missing their top two defenders, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins, and already rank 26th in the league in opponents points per game at 116.8. Joel Embiid and James Harden should run rampant on a depleted Golden State team.
