This is the NBA’s showcase day. Christmas day belong to the NBA. We got 5 games on the slate. Here are my NBA Predictions Today 12/25/20.
Pelicans vs Heat
- spread: Heat -4.5
- over/under: 224.5
- moneyline: Pelicans +163, Heat -195
Jimmy Butler (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the Pelicans. The Pelicans beat Toronto in their first game of the year. Miami lost to Orlando in their first game
Prediction: Pelicans 105, Heat 112
Warriors vs Bucks
- spread: Bucks -10
- over/under: 231.5
- moneyline: Warriors +410, Bucks -560
Both teams lost their first game. Bucks lost on a missed free throw. Warriors are not good and will get beat by double digits.
Prediction: Warriors 110, Bucks 130
Nets vs Celtics
- spread: Nets -3
- over/under: 226.5
- moneyline: Nets -143, Celtics +123
Nets are favored on the road. I want to see how the Nets, who is the deepest team in the league play on the road. I want see if they are for real. Jason Tatum has to be great every night. He wasn’t great in the previous game, but Jaylen Brown was. If Tatum and Brown and be great every night, they will be a hard team to beat.
Prediction: Nets 104, Celtics 110
Mavericks vs Lakers
- spread: Lakers -7
- over/under: 227.5
- moneyline: Mavericks +225, Lakers -278
Anthony Davis is dealing with a right calf contusion but is considered probable for Friday’s game against the Mavericks, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports. It’s Christmas Day, as long as LaBron is playing the Lakers will be fine.
Prediction: Mavs 112, Lakers 118
Clippers vs Nuggets
- spread: Clippers -2.5
- over/under: 224
- moneyline: Clippers -139, Nuggets +117
The Nuggets don’t have anybody who can defend the SF position since they let Grant go in off season. This will show throughout the season and it will show big time in this game.
Prediction: Clippers 110, Nuggets 104
