Free Consensus NBA Picks for Every Game

The suggestions on this NBA Picks page are based on the market consensus–the most common pick–from free picks providers across the sports betting industry such as Covers, Sports Betting Dime, Pickswise and more free NBA picks sources.

Those market consensus picks pair with the best available NBA betting lines from our recommended sportsbooks, giving you a best point spread, total (over/under), and moneyline bets for every NBA game throughout the season.

NBA Consensus Pick Examples

In these examples, the Golden State Warriors are hosting the Denver Nuggets, a matchup that features two of the biggest superstars in the NBA in Stephen Curry and Nikola Jokic.

Of the sources that Betting News monitors, 60% are picking the Warriors to win the game outright. And of the sportsbooks we list odds from, the best available moneyline odds are at Bovada and MyBookie, which both have -115 ML odds for Golden State.

For the point spread, 80% of the sources that we monitor are picking the Warriors to cover the +1 spread. The best available odds for that line are at MyBookie, which has the Warriors +1 available for -110 odds.

Lastly, for the total (over/under), 67% of the sources that we monitor are picking the over. The best line and odds for that are at Bovada, which has the over 231 for -105 odds.

Our NBA game articles often refer to these picks, with our writers either siding with the pick or going against it based on individual analysis.

As a sports bettor, you can then use that information to help you determine which games you want to bet on and where you want to place those bets.

The NBA best bets shown on our NBA picks page are subject to change based on how we calculate market consensus and are also not financial advice. Please gamble responsibly.

How Is the Market Consensus Calculated?

NBA picks example

Betting News uses predicted scores advertised by free picks providers to determine the market consensus.

Let’s expand on the above example:

Based on the NBA odds from our listed sportsbook sources, the best lines for the Nuggets-Warriors matchup are as follows:

Moneyline (ML)

  • Denver Nuggets -115 (Bovada & MyBookie)
  • Golden State Warriors (Bovada & MyBookie)

Point Spread

  • Denver Nuggets -1 (-105) (BetOnline, BetUS, and Bovada)
  • Golden State Warriors +1 (-110) (MyBookie)

Total (O/U)

  • Over 231 (-105) (Bovada)
  • Under 232 (-110) (BetUS & MyBookie)

The information provided by our picks sources and the listed odds are then used to determine the consensus picks for each option.

With the majority of our sources backing the Warriors to cover and win and for the over to hit, we would recommend betting Warriors +1 at MyBookie, Warriors ML at Bovada or MyBookie, and over 231 at Bovada.

The consensus NBA picks we present are gathered using computer and expert-generated picks from industry-leading sources.

No pick is 100 percent guaranteed to win, even if all of the data supports that pick. But if you utilize computer picks and other content–like the content that you will find on Betting News–and your own research, you can do well as a sports bettor.
How do expert picks work?
Experts take in a lot of factors when deciding who to pick. The line, the line movement, the team’s current form, injury news and other factors all play into how an expert decides the picks they are going to make.
