It's about to be a busy night tonight in the NBA! Here's your daily NBA Betting Guide from betJACK!

Los Angeles Clippers @ Cleveland Cavaliers (7 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CLE -6.5

Total Points: 212

The Los Angeles Clippers will head to the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a non-conference matchup. This will be the second and final regular-season game between these teams. The Cavs managed to win a defensive-minded 92-79 match against the Clippers earlier this year.

Point guard Rajon Rondo (ankle) is doubtful, while both shooting guard Caris LeVert (foot) and power forward Lauri Markkanen (ankle) are listed as questionable, and center Jarrett Allen (finger) is out. That is a lot to ask for out of your rotational players, so go with the Los Angeles Clippers to cover the spread (which in a sportsbook would write as LAC +6.5) and the under to hit. 

Portland Trail Blazers @ Atlanta Hawks (7:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: ATL -14

Total Points: 230.5

The Portland Trail Blazers will head to the State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks in a non-conference matchup. This is the second and final matchup between these teams. The Blazers picked up a 136-131 home win against the Hawks earlier this season.

Point guard Trae Young has done very well in his last ten games as he is averaging 28.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 9.3 assists, and 0.7 steals while shooting 46.1 percent from the field and 42.3 percent from deep.

Go with Atlanta to cover the spread and the over to hit as it hit in four of the previous five games.

Denver Nuggets @ Philadelphia 76ers (7:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: PHI -2.5

Total Points: 221

The Denver Nuggets will head to the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers in a non-conference matchup.

The Sixers have been struggling recently. They won an overtime game against the Magic on Sunday.

These defenses have been doing well this year as Philly is seventh in the NBA with 106.5 points per game while Denver is 12th in the sport with 108.5 points per game.

Assuming Jokic and Embiid cancel themselves out, Philly has a huge advantage so go with the under to hit and the Sixers to cover the spread.

Charlotte Hornets @ Oklahoma City Thunder (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CHA -10

Total Points: 232.5

The Charlotte Hornets will head to the Paycom Center to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a non-conference matchup. This is the second and final meeting this year. Last time out, The Hornets picked up a 121-98 home win against the Thunder.

Point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has done very well in his last nine games as he is averaging 30.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 7.7 assists, one block, and two steals per game.

The Thunder are 17-8-1 in their last 26 H2H games, so go with the Thunder to cover the spread and the under to hit. 

Minnesota Timberwolves @ San Antonio Spurs (8:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIN -4

Total Points: 240

The Minnesota Timberwolves will face off against the San Antonio Spurs in a Western Conference matchup at AT&T Center.

Center Karl-Anthony Towns has been doing well in his last ten games as he is averaging 23.5 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game.

The Timberwolves covered the spread in each of the last six games against the Spurs while the under hit in four of the previous five games, so go with Minnesota to cover and the under to hit.  

Washington Wizards @ Golden State Warriors (10 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: GS -12.5

Total Points: 225.5

The Washington Wizards will face off against the Golden State Warriors in the Chase Center in a non-conference game. This is the first of two games against one another as they play in Washington in two weeks.

Small forward Kyle Kuzma has stepped up in his last ten games as he is shooting 45.5 percent overall and 40.3 percent from three while averaging 22.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, one block, and 0.7 steals per game.

Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last five games, while the over hit in four of the previous five games played in Golden State. All in all, go with the Wizards to cover the spread and the over to hit.

Chicago Bulls @ Sacramento Kings (10 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CHI -4

Total Points: 235.5

The Chicago Bulls will head to the Golden 1 Center for a non-conference game against the Sacramento Kings. The Bulls were able to pick up a 125-118 home win in their last match against the Kings.

Small forward DeMar DeRozan has dominated for the Bull s as he scored 38 points in the game against the Kings.

The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last five games. Over has hit in five of the previous six games. All in all, go with the Bulls to cover and the over to hit. 

Milwaukee Bucks @ Utah Jazz (10 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIL -1.5

Total Points: 235.5

The Milwaukee Bucks will head to the Vivint Arena to take on the Utah Jazz in a non-conference matchup. In their previous H2H match, the Jazz won 107-95 on the road.

Center Rudy Gobert (foot) is listed as questionable for this game, and that is a big problem for Jazz. Giannis Antetokounmpo should be free to dominate if Gobert is unable to play.

Looking at the scoring as of late, Milwaukee is averaging 126.8 points in their previous four games, while Utah is scoring 115.6 points in their last five games. The Bucks are 8-30 ATS in their last 38 games, and the over has hit in seven of the previous ten games.

Go with the Bucks to cover the spread and the over to hit!

Toronto Raptors @ Los Angeles Lakers (10:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: TOR -4.5

Total Points: 225

The Toronto Raptors will head out to the Crypto.com Arena to take on the Los Angeles Lakers in a non-conference matchup.

Small forward LeBron James has been playing out of his mind recently; he is shooting 53 percent from the floor, 38.2 percent from three, and 85.7 percent from the charity stripe.

The Raptors are doing decently well, but the Lakers need this game coming off a road loss to the Suns on Sunday. All in all, go with the Lakers to keep the match close and the under to hit.
