New York Knicks @ Brooklyn Nets (1 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: BKN -5.5
Total Points: 224.5
The New York Knicks will head to the Barclays Center in an Eastern Conference matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets have won both games this season against the Knicks and in each of the previous seven games.
Small forward Kevin Durant has been doing incredibly well in his four games since returning from injury as he has averaged 26.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.5 assists, one block, and 0.8 steals while shooting 40 percent from three.
Go with Brooklyn to cover the spread without Kyrie Irving being able to play but despite being allowed inside of the arena for the first time since the COVID mandate began in New York. Also, go with the over to hit as it has in the last five games.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Detroit Pistons (3 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: LAC -4.5
Total Points: 218.5
The Los Angeles Clippers will head to the Little Caesars Arena in a non-conference matchup against the Detroit Pistons. The Clippers are trying to stay the course as small forward Paul George is almost ready to be back in the lineup.
Los Angeles is 6-2-2 against the spread in the last ten games in Detroit and the under hit in six of the previous eight games. All in all, go with the Clippers to cover and the under to hit.
Dallas Mavericks @ Boston Celtics (3:30 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: BOS -7.5
Total Points: 213
The Dallas Mavericks will travel to the TD Garden to take on the Boston Celtics in a non-conference matchup. The Mavericks picked up a 107-104 home win earlier this season against the Celtics.
Small forward Jayson Tatum has been playing incredibly well as in his previous ten games as he is averaging 32.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.5 blocks, and 0.8 steals per game.
Dallas is dealing with a few injuries to their rotation and could force some issues. Go with the Boston Celtics to cover and the under, as both defenses are playing extremely well right now.
Philadelphia 76ers @ Orlando Magic (6 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: PHI -12
Total Points: 223
The Philadelphia 76ers will head south to the Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic in an Eastern Conference matchup. Philly has won the first three regular-season games.
This should be able to go without saying, but the Magic do not have anyone to defend center Joel Embiid . In his last ten games, he is averaging 31.3 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.1 blocks, and 1.3 steals per game.
The Sixers are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games. Bet on 76ers to cover the spread and over to hit!
Indiana Pacers @ Atlanta Hawks (7 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: ATL -12
Total Points: 237
The Indiana Pacers will head to the State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks in an Eastern Conference matchup.
This will be the third of four games as the Hawks were able to win each of the first two games. The Pacers have size as they are fourth in the NBA with 5.7 blocks per game but have a handful of players on the sidelines due to injuries.
The over has hit in each of the last six games between these teams, so go with the over and the Pacers to cover the spread.
Houston Rockets @ New Orleans Pelicans (7 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: NO -6
Total Points: 229.5
The Houston Rockets will head to the Smoothie King Center for a Western Conference matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Rockets are riding a nine-game road losing streak and looking to snap it here.
Shooting guard CJ McCollum (health & safety) and small forward Brandon Ingram (calf) are ruled out for New Orleans in this game but should not be too much to defeat the Rockets without full strength.
The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against the Pelicans, as well as the over being 4-1-1 in the last six meetings, so go with New Orleans to cover the spread and the over to hit.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Oklahoma City Thunder (7 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: MEM -13.5
Total Points: 230
The Memphis Grizzlies will travel to the Paycom Center to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a Western Conference matchup. This will be the third and final game between these teams; they have split the first two regular-season matchups.
The main difference has been the defense in the previous four games this season, as Memphis is giving up 111 points per game in that span while Oklahoma City is allowing 132 points per game during that time.
The Grizzlies are 8-2 against the spread in their last ten games against one another, so go with Memphis to cover as well as the over since it hit in four of five meetings between the Grizzlies and the Thunder.
Los Angeles Lakers @ Phoenix Suns (9 p.m.)
Team Favored and Spread: PHO -8.5
Total Points: 228.5
The Los Angeles Lakers will travel to the Footprint Center to take on the Phoenix Suns in a Western Conference game. The Suns have won each of the previous two games, with Phoenix winning by double digits in both games.
The major difference has been on the defensive side of the floor as Los Angeles is giving up 122.6 points in their last five games while Phoenix is allowing 102 points in their previous three games.
All in all, go with the Phoenix Suns to cover the spread as they have in each of the previous five games. Also, go with the under as it is 6-1-1 in the previous eight games against one another.
