It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for the weekly picks and parlays. It’s also Thanksgiving, which makes these choices even more special. The next few days will have some awesome action for sports fans and bettors, with a couple of gifts to make the selections easier.
Buffalo Bills Coming to New Orleans
Thanksgiving night features a very special matchup with the Buffalo Bills playing on the road against the New Orleans Saints. Both teams are coming off tough losses, which they’ll look to shake off and celebrate the holiday with a win.
The Bills, after starting the season as one of the most solid teams in the NFL, have gone into a downfall lately, which started with an early loss against the Tennessee Titans. Since then, their play has been inconsistent. The Saints are looking to come away with a win against the Bills at home and improve on their disappointing 5-5 record.
Pick: Buffalo Bills to win.
Warriors Ready To Take on Blazers
After one of the best starts to the season by the former champions, the Golden State Warriors are now set to host the Portland Trail Blazers in this Black Friday matchup. The Warriors have been on a roll, dominating their opponents with a 15-2 record.
They will now have to face one of their biggest challenges yet in the Blazers, with PG Damian Lillard averaging 21.8 points per game. The buzz-killing abilities that he brings to the table are an apparent threat to slow down the Warriors’ season run. The Blazers have shown great qualities so far this season and are fifth in the league in points per game at 110.4.
Pick: Golden State Warriors to win.
NY’s Temperature Rising Against Suns
The improved Knicks team, led by PF Julius Randle, have been sending a message to the entire league and are making a notable presence every time they step on the court with their opponents. Now, they will have to face one of the strongest teams in the NBA in the Phoenix Suns.
Their most recent victim was the Cleveland Cavaliers. They have been displaying show-stopping force, which has made them the team to beat early in this season. A win for New York against one of the best teams in the league will make a statement and could be a turnaround from their most recent performances.
Pick: New York Knicks to win.
Champs to Visit Denver
Coming off a five-game win streak, the Milwaukee Bucks are on the hunt against an always-competitive team in the Denver Nuggets, who are missing some of their top players due to injury. Former MVP C Nikola Jokic is out with a wrist injury. Additionally, they’re missing SF Michael Porter Jr, PG Jamal Murray and SG P.J. Dozier.
The Bucks are hot and are currently riding a 5-game winning streak. It doesn’t look good for Denver in this game, and with what we’ve seen lately from the Bucks and PF Giannis Antetokounmpo, they’re in for a long night.
Pick: Milwaukee Bucks to win.
