NBA Best Bets Today - Picks for Tuesday, Dec. 27

Leg Moneyline Parlay: Raptors over Clippers + Hawks over Pacers + Thunder over Spurs (+287)

The schedule-makers dealt a few teams a bad hand today. The Clippers, Pacers and Spurs are all on the second night of a back-to-back set and facing opponents with three days of rest. Of course, that doesn't guarantee wins for the Raptors, Hawks and Thunder, but it's a good situation to try to capitalize on.

Denver Nuggets -3.5 at Sacramento Kings

This isn't the easiest spot for the Nuggets on the road, especially with Aaron Gordonand Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on the injury report, but they should be catching the Kings at a good time as Domantas Sabonis makes his first attempt at playing through a fairly significant thumb injury. Defending Nikola Jokic is one thing, but if Sabonis isn't himself on offense, I'm not sure the Kings can keep up with the league's second-best offense.

Jordan Poole over 26.5 points (-120) vs. Hornets

I think this line is set pretty well. Poole is averaging 28.6 points on 20.6 shot attempts since Steph Curry suffered his shoulder injury. But I think it's worth betting on the over against a poor defensive team in Charlotte. The Hornets allow the third-most points per game in the NBA, and they're on the second night of a back-to-back while the Warriors are at home.
