NBA betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Detroit Pistons at Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder.

Detroit Pistons at Los Angeles Clippers (20:30 GMT)


Blake Griffin will face the Los Angeles Clippers for the first time since being traded to the Detroit Pistons ahead of last season’s trade deadline. The athletic All-Star forward spent eight seasons with the Clippers before being shipped to the Pistons in exchange for Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic plus two draft picks. Griffin, 29, has found a home in the Motor City as he leads the team in scoring with a career-best 25.1 points per game. He was rested in their 112-102 loss at Sacramento on Thursday for their fourth straight defeat. Stanley Johnson paced Detroit with 16 points while Reggie Bullock and Bruce Bowen Jr chipped in 15 apiece. The Clippers (24-17) are also aiming to get back on track after suffering a 121-100 loss at Denver on Thursday that ended their three-game winning run. Lou Williams scored 19 points while Harris and Danilo Gallinari added 18 apiece to pace LA. The Clippers and Pistons split their two meetings last season but LA have lost only twice in their head-to-head meetings since 2010. We expect the Clippers to again triumph over the Pistons.



San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder (01:00 GMT on Sunday)


Expect an intense duel between the San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in their second meeting in three days. Behind the career-high 56 points of LaMarcus Aldridge, the Spurs beat the Thunder 154-147 in double overtime at home on Thursday. Derrick White added 23 points and eight assists while Marco Belinelli chipped in 19 after shooting 5-of-5 from beyond the arc. Paul George paced OKC with 30 points while Russell Westbrook tallied a triple-double effort of 24 points, 24 assists and 13 rebounds. Jerami Grant also made an impact by posting 24 points and 12 rebounds before fouling out.We expect OKC to bounce back against the Spurs.
