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

Boston Celtics @ Detroit Pistons (12 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: BOS -11

Total Points: 215.5

The Boston Celtics will go to Little Caesars Arena this afternoon to face off against the Detroit Pistons in an Eastern Conference matchup.

Small forward Jayson Tatum has struggled in his two games against the Pistons as he is averaging 23 points, 6.5 rebounds, three assists, and one steal per game, which are below his season numbers.

Go with Detroit to keep it close and cover as they are 6-0 Against the Spread in their last six games against Boston. Also, expect the under as it is 7-2-1 in their last ten head to head games in Detroit.

Toronto Raptors @ Atlanta Hawks (7:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: ATL -2.5

Total Points: 225.5

The Toronto Raptors will be inside the State Farm Arena to take on the Atlanta Hawks in an Eastern Conference game.

The offense is a major difference recently as the Raptors are scoring 98.8 points in their previous four games while the Hawks are averaging 120.7 points in their last three games.

The Raptors are 2-0 against the Hawks this season. The over has hit in six of the previous eight games against one another, so go with the over here as well.

Washington Wizards @ Cleveland Cavaliers (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CLE -7.5

Total Points: 207.5

The Washington Wizards and the Cleveland Cavaliers will clash for the final time this season as the Wizards have won two of the first three games.

Washington is going to be exhausted on the second half of a back-to-back after suffering a double-overtime loss. Center Jarrett Allen has feasted against Washington this year as in two games; he has 20.5 points, 11/5 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 70.4 percent.

All in all, go with the Cleveland Cavaliers to cover against an inferior team. The under hit in four of the last five games, so go with the under to hit as well.

San Antonio Spurs @ Miami Heat (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIA -8

Total Points: 225.5

The San Antonio Spurs continue their road trip as they take on the Miami Heat here.

The Heat won the only other matchup between them earlier in the season by 17 points on the road. The major difference is defense, as San Antonio is allowing 122.8 points in their last five games while Miami is giving up just 104.4 points in that span as well.

Miami’s defense is too good, and the Spurs are coming off a double-overtime game last night, so go with the Heat to cover and the under to hit here.

Memphis Grizzlies @ Chicago Bulls (8 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CHI -2

Total Points: 236.5

Memphis and Chicago will clash inside of the United Center for the second and final time as the Grizzlies won 119-106 at home against them earlier this season.

The Bulls are on a six-game winning streak and are fortifying their place in the standings as of late, with small forward DeMar DeRozan being electric lately. Point guard Ja Morant (hip) is questionable, and that is a huge reason why I would take Chicago to cover.

Morant is too important and needs to be 100 percent in order for Memphis to have a chance here. Don’t expect as many points either as the under is 3-1-2 in their last six games against one another.

Brooklyn Nets @ Milwaukee Bucks (8:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIL -9

Total Points: 236.5

The Brooklyn Nets will head to the Fiserv Forum with some injuries to star players to take on the Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee has won both games thus far against Brooklyn, each with a double-digit difference.

Power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has been playing extremely well as in his last nine games, he is averaging 33.4 points, 11.3 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.1 blocks, and 0.8 steals while shooting 62.2 percent from the floor, 41.7 percent from three, and 72.6 percent from the free-throw line in that span.

The under is 9-1-1 in their last 11 meetings so go with the under and the Bucks to cover as the Nets are a brutal 16-34-1 Against the Spread when facing the Bucks. 

Sacramento Kings @ Denver Nuggets (9 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: DEN -8

Total Points: 236

The Denver Nuggets will host the Sacramento Kings inside of Ball Arena in a Western Conference matchup.

The Nuggets are 2-0 in the first two of four games this season, and the Kings are riding a three-game losing streak while the Nuggets are on a four-game winning streak. Center Nikola Jokic has been doing extremely well in the two games against Sacramento as he is averaging 29 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, 1.5 blocks, and three steals in 34 minutes per game.

Go with the Nuggets to win by double digits and the over to hit as it hit in each of the last six games played in Denver.
