NBA Betting Preview, Odds & Picks for December 13: Steph Takes Aim at History as Warriors Visit Pacers

By | December 13, 2021

Will history be made tonight in Indianapolis? Steph Curry is only seven three-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s NBA record for most career threes. Initially, Steph was set to rest tonight and then resume his pursuit of the record tomorrow night against the Knicks at MSG, but he has opted to try to get it out of the way tonight. As per the latest NBA betting odds for Warriors-Pacers, Steph is -140 to make over 5.5 threes tonight. Given Steph’s competitive fire and his numbers this season, should we expect any other outcome than that one?

That is a more appropriate discussion for our daily NBA props piece, but the Pacers could be in for a long night if Steph is in the mood to make history.

Steph’s pursuit of history is the night’s big storyline, but tonight’s nine-game slate has multiple matchups that are more intriguing than Warriors-Pacers as contests. All in all, there are five matchups between teams that are currently .500 or better, and the other four matchups are all worth following or betting on for some reason. That’s not something that can be said every night in the NBA, even if you are a diehard hoops head.

Let’s take a look at tonight’s schedule and the top NBA betting picks for each matchup.
