A lot of exciting NBA action tonight! Let’s hop into betJACK’s Daily NBA Betting Guide!

Detroit Pistons @ Washington Wizards (7 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: WAS -4.5

Total Points: 218.5

The Detroit Pistons are entering this game trying to snap their seven-game losing streak as they take on the Washington Wizards.

These teams faced once earlier this season, with the Wizards picking up a 119-116 road victory. Center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and center Daniel Gafford (conditioning) are both ruled out for the Wizards, so they will be forced to play smaller than they would like.

Detroit is averaging 104.3 points in their last four games, so go with them to score enough to cover the spread and the under as it hit in four of the previous five games against one another. 

Sacramento Kings @ Brooklyn Nets (7:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: SAC -4

Total Points: 227.5

The Sacramento Kings will travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets. These teams faced off earlier this month, and the Kings pulled off a 112-101 home win.

Shooting guard Seth Curry and center Andre Drummond are going to make their Brooklyn Nets debut here and should fit in well here. The Nets are beginning to get healthy as center LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) and power forward Nic Claxton (hamstring) are both probable for this game.

All in all, go with the Brooklyn Nets to win this game outright and snap their major losing streak as well as the under as it hit in four of the last five meetings played in Brooklyn. 

Oklahoma City Thunder @ New York Knicks (7:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: NY -8.5

Total Points: 205.5

The Oklahoma City Thunder will travel to the World’s Most Famous Arena to take on the New York Knicks in a non-conference matchup here. The Thunder picked up a 95-80 home win earlier this season in their only other matchup.

Point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle), power forward Mike Muscala (ankle), and small forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (foot) are out for the Thunder while the Knicks will be without small forward RJ Barrett (ankle) and point guard Derrick Rose (ankle).

Oklahoma City has covered in five of the previous six games against New York so go with them to keep the game close as well as the over as this is not many points at all. 

San Antonio Spurs @ Chicago Bulls (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CHI -5

Total Points: 234.5

The San Antonio Spurs will travel to the United Center to take on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are currently on a three-game winning streak and are doing well as they are 21-8 at home this season.

Small forward DeMar DeRozan has been on a tear as he is averaging 33.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists, and 1.2 steals in his last ten games and should be able to get revenge on his former team.

Go with Chicago to cover the spread in this game. The Bulls are shooting 48.2 percent as a team, which leads the NBA, so go with the over here in this game. 

Portland Trail Blazers @ Milwaukee Bucks (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIL -15.5

Total Points: 230.5

The Blazers have a lot of people out for this game as their injury report is listing point guard Dennis Smith Jr (elbow), point guard Eric Bledsoe (Achilles), point guard Didi Louzada (knee), small forward Joe Ingles (knee), shooting guard Keldon Johnson (ankle), small forward Nassir Little (shoulder), and point guard Damian Lillard (abdominal) all out.

However, power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is questionable, and that could be a huge blow to their chances if he isn’t 100 percent. Everything needs to go right for Milwaukee to cover this giant number so go with Portland to cover a huge spread.

The over has hit in each of the last five games in Milwaukee for these teams, so go with the over as well.

Toronto Raptors @ New Orleans Pelicans (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: TOR -4

Total Points: 222.5

The Toronto Raptors have been red-hot as of late as they are looking to win their sixth consecutive road game as they take on the New Orleans Pelicans.

However, shooting guard CJ McCollum is coming off a 36 point and 11 rebound performance and, paired with small forward Brandon Ingram, should be a great duo for the Pelicans until power forward Zion Williams (foot) is able to join the fray.

Power forward Pascal Siakam has been stepping up recently for Toronto as he is averaging 24.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 0.9 blocks, and 1.7 steals in his last ten games.

All in all, go with New Orleans to cover and the over to be hit. 

Orlando Magic @ Denver Nuggets (9 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: DEN -11

Total Points: 226.5

The Orlando Magic will travel to Ball Arena on Monday to take on the Denver Nuggets in a non-conference affair.

These teams faced off earlier this season, and Orlando was able to win on the road 108-103. Center Nikola Jokic has been dominating this season as he is averaging 25.8 points, 13.7 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 steals per game. The Magic struggle to score points as they are 28th in the league with 103.1 points per game this year.

All in all, go with the Denver Nuggets to cover the spread and the under to hit. 

Houston Rockets @ Utah Jazz (9 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: UTA -14.5

Total Points: 231.5

The Houston Rockets will travel north to take on the Utah Jazz in a Western Conference matchup. These teams have faced off twice and split the games this season, each with the road team reigning victorious.

However, the Rockets are on a four-game losing streak while the Jazz are riding a five-game winning streak into this game. Center Rudy Gobert (calf) is questionable for this game as he has not played since Jan 23. Shooting guard Donovan Mitchell is shooting 39.5 percent from three-point range since returning from his concussion and should be an elite scorer in this game against a tanking team.

Go with the Rockets to cover a large number but not be close to winning as well as the under as it hit in six of the previous seven games against one another. 

Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Clippers (10:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: GS -6

Total Points: 220.5

The Golden State Warriors have been one of the best teams in the NBA and will be on the road to take on the Los Angeles Clippers. Point guard Stephen Curry is having a down shooting season according to his standards as he is five percentage points below his career field goal percentage and three-point percentage.

However, the Clippers do not have a scoring threat that has the ability to match his scoring output. Golden State is an elite-level defensive team as they are third in the NBA, allowing just 103.2 points per game this season.

The Warriors have covered in nine of the previous twelve road games against the Clippers so go with Golden State there as well as the under.
