NBA fans love Christmas Day with games starting at noon Eastern Time, and running for more than 12 hours straight. The Bucks and Knicks get it started from MSG, followed by OKC at Houston (see a free pick for this one in Dave’s Dogs Ready to Bite the Books article), Philly at Boston, LA Lakers at Golden State and wraps up in Utah when they host Portland.
The Knicks have only 9 wins in 34 games so far this season and are currently on a 4-game losing streak. Giannis and company will pull out to a big lead and this one won’t be close. We’re taking the Bucks as the first of three for this 5-point teaser, and will be starting the day off right, complete with Santa Claus, toys and some turkey.
The second part of our teaser is riding the coattails of our own Dave Schaub and taking the OKC Thunder. The Thunder are currently 3rd in the West with a 21-11 record, and are 9-7 ATS on the road, and have a 5-3 ATS record when closing as the underdog. With the 5 points we’re getting, I’m very comfortable with them holding the Rockets close enough in this one for the extra 5 points to help make this teaser profitable.

LeBron has his Lakers playing better ball of late, and are currently 5 games over .500. You can bet King James will have his squad up for this one, and while the Warriors won’t lose this game, expect the Lakers to keep it close enough for them to help us cash this winning teaser ticket.
So there you have our Three Team Christmas Teaser. Be sure to head over to your online sportsbook early, as we stated earlier, the tipoff for this one goes off at noon Eastern.
