PointsBet’s Best Promo Code & Bonuses (Wednesday, Dec. 25): Christmas NBA Specials
LeBron James and Anthony Davis to Score 50+ Combined Points
Boosted from +105 to +125
Let’s start with this: Our NBA models have the Lakers’ duo projected to score 52.5 points today, so getting +125 odds on Over 49.5 is a terrific value. Both LeBron and AD have been battling injuries of late, but it appears they built their rest schedules around playing in this marquee matchup on Christmas.
Here’s the combined output from Davis and LeBron the past five games they’ve played together:
One thing that could keep the Over from hitting is an in-game injury setback from either player (it’s always a concern with Davis in particular), but all of the numbers point to this being a smart play.
Make It Rain
$3 Bonus for Every 3-Pointer Your Team Makes
PointsBet is doing this promotion for the two best games of the day: Bucks (-3) at 76ers and Clippers at Lakers (-2). The concept is pretty simple: Place a spread bet of at least $100 on one of these four sides, and you’ll get $3 for every 3-pointer your team makes on Wednesday. This bonus will come in addition to any potential winnings from your spread bet.
For some context, here’s how many 3s these four teams average:
- Bucks: 14.3
- Clippers: 11.8
- Lakers: 10.9
- 76ers: 10.8
If you’re looking for a nudge, a few of our NBA experts have already bet on the Bucks, and given Milwaukee’s 3-point prowess, they’re not a bad team to target. Same goes for the Clippers.
Regardless of which team you choose, this promotion will help take some of the risk of your moneyline bet out of the equation. It comes with zero downside and all upside if you’re already planning on betting the spread in one of these two games.
Giannis to Score 30+ Points
Boosted from -135 to -115
Giannis is averaging 31.0 points per game this season and 31.1 points per game this month. His December numbers have come with playing just 28.5 minutes per game. Our NBA models have him projected for a lot more playing time today — 34.5 minutes — which is a scary thought for someone who’s been averaging more than a point per minute played this month.
