Miami Heat @ New York Knicks – 12:00 PM ET
The New York Knicks will be on display on Christmas Day as the lead game with the Miami Heat but one player who probably won’t make an appearance is Knicks guard Nate Robinson. Robinson has been buried on the bench in New York since he resigned for one year but he’s likely learned his lesson.
The Heat haven’t been great recently but they are the better team in this matchup. Look for Dwyane Wade to lead the way in this one.
Sports Wagering Pick: Heat
Boston Celtics @ Orlando Magic – 2:30 PM ET
The Celtics-Magic game will be the first highlight game of the day as the matchup will be a potential Eastern Conference Finals preview.
The Celtics will be a bit shorthanded for this game as guard Paul Pierce will be out a couple of weeks after having his kneed drained.
With Magic at home, they should be able to control this matchup and get the win.
Sports Handicapping Pick: Magic
Cleveland Cavaliers @ Los Angeles Lakers – 5:00 PM ET
The highlight game of the day will be the Cleveland Cavaliers-Los Angeles Lakers matchup. The Cavs and Lakers are perceived as the two best teams in the league and their stars, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, are the best players in the business.
It will also be another Shaq-Kobe matchup.
It’s tough to bet against the Lakers at home but the Cavs will make a statement on Christmas Day.
Internet Gambling Pick: Cavaliers
Los Angeles Clippers @ Phoenix Suns – 8:00 PM ET
The Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns will probably be the biggest mismatch on Christmas Day. The Clippers have been playing better basketball of late but the Suns are just one of the best teams in the West right now.
The Clippers don’t have the firepower to keep in this game so look for the Suns to roll.
Sportsbetting.com Review Picks: Suns
Denver Nuggets @ Portland Trail Blazers – 10:30 PM ET
The Denver Nuggets have carried over their momentum and performance from last year but one area where they still struggle is on the road.
While they are 12-1 at home they are just 7-8 on the road. That will be the main factor for the Blazers winning on Friday.
Pick: Trail Blazers
