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

Portland Trail Blazers at Indiana Pacers (3:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: IND -8

Total Points: 235

The Portland Trail Blazers will face off against the Indiana Pacers in a non-conference game inside of the Gainbridge Fieldhouse. This will be the second and final game against one another. Last time out, Portland picked up a 110-106 home win.

Portland is on a three-game losing streak and needs to turn things around now. Indiana is doing decently well and is meshing together.

The Trail Blazers are 11-3 ATS in their previous 14 games, while the under hit in seven of the previous nine games. All in all, go with Portland and the under to hit here.

Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets (3:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: MEM -10.5

Total Points: 235

The Memphis Grizzlies will head to the FedExForum for a Western Conference battle. This will be the fourth and final game against one another, with the Grizzlies winning two of those games thus far.

Houston is struggling as they are on a four-game losing streak right now, and a young team is running out of steam. Point guard Ja Morant (knee) is out for the game, but the rest of the team should be able to control the game.

Go with the Memphis Grizzlies and the under to hit as it has hit in 29 of the previous 43 road games against the Rockets. 

New Orleans Pelicans at Atlanta Hawks (6 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: ATL -4

Total Points: 232

The New Orleans Pelicans will head to the State Farm Arena in a non-conference affair against the Atlanta Hawks. Point guard Trae Young (quadriceps) is questionable for this game, and power forward John Collins (finger) is listed as out.

Shooting guard CJ McCollum has been playing extremely well in his previous eight games as he is averaging 24 points, five rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 1.1 steals in that stretch while shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 37.9 percent from three.

Go with the Pelicans to cover on the road and the under to hit as it has in five of the previous six games played between one another in Atlanta.

Oklahoma City Thunder at Orlando Magic (6 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: ORL -6.5

Total Points: 225.5

The Oklahoma City Thunder will head to the Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic in a non-conference matchup. Both teams are struggling as the Thunder are on an eight-game losing streak while the Magic are on a three-game losing streak.

These teams have been struggling offensively as Orlando is 28th in the sport with 104.5 points per game while Oklahoma City is dead last in the NBA with 103.1 points per game.

All in all, the best bets seem to be for the Oklahoma City Thunder getting a handful of points and the under to hit.

Phoenix Suns at Sacramento Kings (6 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: PHO -10

Total Points: 232.5

The Phoenix Suns will head to the Golden 1 Center in a Western Conference matchup to take on the Sacramento Kings. This will be the third of four games between these teams as the two have split the first two matchups.

However, the records speak for themselves here. Shooting guard Devin Booker has been playing extremely well in his last six games as he is averaging 27.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 0.7 blocks, and 1.5 steals in that stretch.

Go with the Phoenix Suns to cover the spread on the road and the under to hit in this meeting as it has hit in five of the previous six games. 

Utah Jazz at New York Knicks (7:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: UTA -4.5

Total Points: 222.5

The Utah Jazz will head to the World's Most Famous Arena Madison Square Garden for a non-conference game against the New York Knicks.

They faced off earlier this season with the Jazz picking up a 113-104 home victory. Looking at the offensive side of things, Utah is averaging 122.8 points in their previous four games while New York is scoring 111.2 points in their last five games.

The Jazz are doing well and should cover the spread. Also, take the under.

Boston Celtics at Denver Nuggets (8 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: BOS -3.5

Total Points: 222

The Boston Celtics will head to the Ball Arena to take on the Denver Nuggets in a non-conference game. This will be the second and final game against one another. The Celtics picked up a 108-102 home win last time out.

Center Nikola Jokic has been playing well in his last nine games as he is averaging 30 points, 13.2 rebounds, 8.3 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 1.4 steals in that stretch while shooting 61.9 percent from the field.

All in all, go with the Denver Nuggets to cover the spread at home and the under as it hit in each of its previous six games against one another. 

Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers (8:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: PHI -5

Total Points: 222

The Toronto Raptors will head to the Wells Fargo Center to face the Philadelphia 76ers in an Eastern Conference game. This will be the third of four games against one another. They split the first two games.

Center Joel Embiid (back) is listed as questionable, and head coach Doc Rivers stated he was going to rest Embiid and James Harden down the stretch, so this could potentially be one of those games.

The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their previous five games played in Philly, and the under is 11-5-1 in their last 17 meetings, so go with Raptors to keep the match close and also take the under. 

San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors (8:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: GS -6

Total Points: 227

The San Antonio Spurs will travel to the Chase Center for some Western Conference action against the Golden State Warriors.

Point guard Dejounte Murray has been feasting in his last nine games as he is averaging 25.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 8.7 assists, and 2.7 steals per game.

The Warriors are without point guard Stephen Curry (foot), center James Wiseman (knee), and shooting guard Gary Payton II (knee) in this game, and that's a huge blow to their chances.

All in all, go with San Antonio to keep the match close on the road. Also, take the under, as it is 3-1-1 in their last five games against one another.
