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

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Cleveland Cavaliers (7 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: MIN -3

Total Points: 219

The Minnesota Timberwolves will travel to the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a non-conference game. Point guard Darius Garland (back) is Cleveland’s best scoring option, and he has already been ruled out due to the injury. That means D’Angelo Russell should be able to control the game here.

This will be the second and final game between these teams this year, as the Cavs picked up a 123-106 road win earlier this season. Minnesota is 7-3 Against The Spread (ATS) in their last ten games played in Cleveland so go with them to cover as well as the over as these teams can put the ball in the hoop.

Indiana Pacers @ Orlando Magic (7 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: ORL -1.5

Total Points: 229.5

The Indiana Pacers will be at the Amway Center to take on the Orlando Magic in an Eastern Conference showdown here. Shooting guard Chris Duarte has been shooting the lights out of the gym in his last seven games as he is shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc in that span.

The offenses in their last five games show a split as Indiana is scoring 121 points while Orlando is averaging 108.6 points. Go with the Pacers to cover the spread and the over to hit. 

Toronto Raptors @ Brooklyn Nets (7:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: TOR -4

Total Points: 219.5

The Toronto Raptors will head to Barclays Center on the first half of a home-and-home series against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are 2-0 this season against the Raptors but are dealing with a bunch of key players missing as point guard Ben Simmons (back), point guard Kyrie Irving (COVID mandate), and Kevin Durant (knee) are all going to miss this game.

For the Raptors, shooting guard Fred VanVleet (knee) is listed as questionable, and small forward OG Anunoby (finger) is out here. The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Nets so go with Toronto to cover and the under to h it.

Chicago Bulls @ Miami Heat (7:30 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: MIA -4

Total Points: 224.5

The Chicago Bulls will travel to the FTX Arena to take on the Miami Heat here, and small forward DeMar DeRozan continues to be red hot as in his last ten games, he is averaging 36.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and a steal in 38.5 minutes while shooting 56.6 percent from the floor, 42.1 percent from deep, and 86.8 percent from the free-throw line.

Miami is dealing with shooting guard Victor Oladipo (knee), point guard Kyle Lowry (personal), and power forward Markieff Morris (neck), all missing this game. The Bulls are 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games against the Heat so go with them to cover.

San Antonio Spurs @ Memphis Grizzlies (8 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: MEM -8.5

Total Points: 236

The San Antonio Spurs will travel to the FedExForum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies in a Western Conference matchup. Memphis has won the first two games of the season series thus far, including a 118-105 home win earlier this year.

Point guard Ja Morant is averaging 35.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, eight assists, and a steal in the two games against San Antonio this year.

The Spurs are 5-4-1 ATS in their last ten games while Memphis is 7-3 so go with the Grizzlies to dominate at home. The over has also hit in nine of the previous 13 games between these teams played in Memphis, so go with the over as well. 

Charlotte Hornets @ Milwaukee Bucks (8 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: MIL -10

Total Points: 240.5

The Charlotte Hornets will travel to the Fiserv Forum to take on the Milwaukee Bucks in an Eastern Conference showdown. Both teams are struggling right now as they are each 1-4 in their previous five games.

These offenses have been doing extremely well in their last three games as the Hornets are averaging 119.3 points while the Bucks are scoring 123.7 points in that stretch. The Hornets are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games against the Bucks so go with Charlotte to cover and the over to hit. 

Sacramento Kings @ Oklahoma City Thunder (8 p.m.)

Team Favored and Spread: SAC -4.5

Total Points: 228.5

The Sacramento Kings will head to the Paycom Center to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in a Western Conference matchup. Neither team has played well this season, and the Kings are entering on a four-game losing streak.

Point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been asked to do a lot in his two games since returning from injury as he is averaging 24 points, five rebounds, five assists, one block, 1.5 steals, and 6.5 turnovers in 36.5 minutes on the court.

Sacramento has a decent team that is healthy right now and are 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings, so go with them to cover as well as the under to hit as it has in the previous four games played in OKC.
