ESPN’s Fantasy Basketball and Basketball Betting Tips Cheat Sheet is your pre-game destination for basketball betting predictions and the best information and data to help you make wise fantasy and betting decisions. Odds for the January 15 NBA game are provided by Caesars Sportsbook, and fantasy advice is based on ESPN 10 team leagues.


Unconditional love: Our dogs give us unconditional love. Home underdogs will give you unconditional love when you score 5 or more points this season (58.9% coverage, +13.5 money line). Neither the Pistons (he’s 12-34 this season) nor the Spurs (13-30, since New Year’s Eve he’s 1-7) are “comfortable bets.”

Project Point, Back ‘Dogs: When it comes to points total for this Kings vs. Spurs matchup, any metric you use spits out overwhelming predictions: top 10 pace, bottom 10 defense, and more. The underdog is 13-6-2 in a game where he is expected to score more than 240 points this season. Please accept the potential confusion as this spot has a high point total!

Following the breadcrumbs: Seeing enough numbers often talks to both sides of the bet. Betting outside of this early Knicks vs. Pistons game, that is. For scale, try these trends: With the Pistons, he’s been over-over in 12 of his last 18 games, three of his last four against teams in the bottom eight, and he’s been 9-3-1 in his last 14 games against the Knicks. He’s 9-1 this season when the Knicks have a 4-point advantage. little by little. Want to separate the stakes or stack up the SGP?Sportscenter’s Phil Murphy says he’s 16-3-1 insane his overs in the 3rd quarter at home to Detroit in his game says. Choose which thread to pull…they all end up in the same place!

Fantasy streamers: Killian Hayes (Available in 67.4% leagues) He’s available in over two-thirds of leagues, so he’s a staple in this space. At this point, he really should be on the wide roster.

Best bet: Jalen Brunson 25.5 points or moreBranson has been wielding the torch all year long in 2023. The last few games I expected him to come back down to earth, but he keeps getting bigger and bigger.
