It’s a light slate of games across the NBA on Monday with only six games taking place but there is still plenty of value in terms of free picks. Let’s give a breakdown on each of the games and give away a free pick.
Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks
These are both teams who can really score and don’t play a whole lot of defense. Each of the last five games for the Wizards have had at least 149 points scored including one a few games ago that had the final score of 151-141. Look for plenty of scoring by both teams and for the over to have no issue cashing. In terms of the side it’s a lean to the Hawks to come away with a cover of the spread.
Indiana Pacers at Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavaliers have enough problems overall and having to face the Pacers on the second night of a back to back is a big issue. The Pacers offense has been strong as of late and in the last game against the Washington Wizards they scored 132 points. The Pacers are goig to push the pace in this game and that will be the difference as they come away with a big victory and a cover of the spread.
Play: Pacers ATS
New Orleans Pelicans at Memphis Grizzlies
The New Orleans Pelicans are without Zion Williamson and on SUnday they had to face off with the Charlotte Hornets. Without Zion, the offense hasn’t been strong and each of the last three games they have scored 108 points or less. In the Grizzlies last game they only scored 109 points and the defense only gave up 99 points.Look for both teams to play a slower pace and for the under to cash.
Milwaukee Bucks at San Antonio Spurs
The Milwaukee Bucks offense has been running up the score all season and each of the last three games they have scored 124 points. In the last game against the Rockets, the Bucks were able to win 144-131. The Bucks defense hasn’t been great this season and both teams are going to run up the score in this game. Look for a high scoring game that goes well over the posted total.
Utah Jazz at Golden State Warriors
The Utah Jazz are finally hitting their stride again and in their last game against the Houston Rockets they put up 124 points. In the last game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Warriors were able to win 136-97. The Jazz’s defense has been a bit suspect as of late and the Warriors are going to take advantage. Back the Warriors to come away with a cover of the spread.
Play: Warriors ATS
Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers are going to run up the score in this game, much like they have done the last month and that is going to be the difference as this game gets out of hand early. The Rockets gave up 124 points to the last game against the Jazz and that will be the difference in this game. Back the Trail Blazers to come away with a win and a cover of the spread.
Play: Trail Blazers ATS
