The BetSided team has you covered with a pick for each matchup on Nov. 29, as well as prop plays for on our NBA props page.

BetSided's Peter Dewey and Donnavan Smoot love the favorites tonight, and there's a few reasons why. Let's check out their picks:

New York Knicks vs. Detroit Pistons Odds, Prediction and Pick

The New York Knicks are 2-0 against the Detroit Pistons this season, and they’ve won by nine and 24 points in those contests. 

Now, New York gets a chance to bounce back from two close losses over the weekend with Cade Cunningham out for Detroit. Jaden Ivey and Bojan Bogdanovic are both questionable. 

The Knicks have not been great this season, and RJ Barrett is struggling mightily with his efficiency. Despite that, New York is the side to back here, as the Pistons are arguably the worst team in the NBA. 

Detroit ranks 25th in offensive rating, 29th in defensive rating and 30th in effective field goal percentage this season. The Knicks have been a bad defensive team this season, but Detroit’s lack of shooting makes it less likely to take advantage. 

With Jalen Brunson in the midst of a hot stretch, the Knicks can at least win this game, and win it easily.  -- Peter Dewey

Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Odds, Prediction and Pick

The sky is no longer falling in Golden State. The Warriors are 7-3 in their last 10 games, have won their last three, and are top six in net rating over the last 10 games. Stephen Curry’s MVP stock is all the way up right now, and the Mavericks will likely see why tonight. 

While Golden State has seemed to fix its problems, the Mavericks are starting to have issues of their own. They are 3-7 in their last 10 games, are 19th in net rating and are 25th in offensive rating in that span. Luka Dončić has to do everything and we’re seeing the effects of it right now. 

With four straight losses to playoff teams, I’m not sure if I can trust the Mavericks – even at home tonight. I’ll take the Warriors with the short spread tonight to keep the good vibes going. -- Donnavan Smoot

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers Odds, Prediction and Pick

Los Angeles is still without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, which leaves it in a familiar position. However, that experience won’t help them today

The Clippers were able to win their last game behind a legendary 31 points and 29 rebounds from Ivica Zubac. That won’t happen again tonight, leaving the Clippers without a major source of offense. 

Portland, although still without Damian Lillard, has Anfernee Simons to carry the load offensively. The Blazers got a much-needed win against the Knicks two games ago and were able to put up 132 points. If we can get that version of Anfernee Simons and the Blazers’ offense, then I like the Blazers to win tonight at home. -- Donnavan Smoot
