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

Philadelphia 76ers @ Chicago Bulls (3:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: PHI -2.5

Total Points: 220

In one of the more star-studded games on today’s slate, the 76ers will travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls. Philly is 2-0 against them so far this season, and center Joel Embiid has been nothing short of incredible in his last nine games as he is averaging 35.3 points, 11.9 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.8 blocks, and 0.6 steals.

Chicago is shooting the ball incredibly well as they are tied for the NBA lead, with 47.8 percent of their shot attempts going in. All in all, go with the 76ers to cover the spread on the road as well as the over as these teams shown the ability to score the ball this year. 

Detroit Pistons @ Minnesota Timberwolves (3:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIN -12.5

Total Points: 230.5

Minnesota is finally playing up to their potential this season and are hosting a weaker Detroit team today. Point guards Patrick Beverley (ankle) and D’Angelo Russell (shin) are listed as probable, and that should be enough in itself.

Center Karl-Anthony Towns is in the top-15 in points and rebounds this season and should be able to hold the fort against this weakened Pistons team that has rookie point guard Cade Cunningham (hip) on the injury report as questionable.

Also, expect a lot of points as the T-Wolves could hit over their 127.5 implied points here. 

Brooklyn Nets @ Denver Nuggets (3:30 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: DEN -5.5

Total Points: 229.5

The Brooklyn Nets are dealing with a terrible slide right now as they are on a seven-game losing streak entering this game against the Denver Nuggets.

Shooting guard James Harden (hamstring) and power forward Nic Claxton (hamstring) are both questionable for this game. However, if Harden can play up to his standards with all the drama going on, the Nets should be able to win here.

Go with Brooklyn getting +5.5 here, as they should be able to cover here and snap their losing streak. The points should be flying as well as the over hit in 10 of their last 13 games against one another. 

Indiana Pacers @ Cleveland Cavaliers (6 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: CLE -6

Total Points: 217

Cleveland has been driven on the defensive side of the floor as they are currently leading the NBA with 102.4 points per game, while Indiana is 21st with 111.1 points per game allowed.

These teams have shown the ability to score the basketball as of late, too, as the Pacers are averaging 118.3 points in their last three games while the Cavaliers are scoring 103.8 points per game.

The Pacers are 0-3-3 Against The Spread in their last six games played in Cleveland so go with the Cavaliers to cover a six-point spread. The over hit in six of the previous eight games in Cleveland so go with over 217 points as well.

Boston Celtics @ Orlando Magic (6 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: BOS -9.5

Total Points: 215.5

Boston is currently 2-0 against Orlando this season and are heading into their last game this season against one another.

The Celtics are riding a four-game winning streak and are playing incredible defense in that span as they are giving up 97.3 points per game. Small forward Jayson Tatum has been playing well in his last ten games as he is averaging 27.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 0.9 steals per game.

The Celtics are 4-1 Against The Spread in their last five games, as well as the under hit in five of the previous six games in Orlando so follow the trends.  

Atlanta Hawks @ Dallas Mavericks (6 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: DAL -2.5

Total Points: 220

The Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Mavericks will square off against one another in a battle of draft-day trades between Trae Young and Luka Doncic.

The Hawks won 113-87 at home in their only game this season between each other. Young is third in the NBA in points (27.9) and assists (9.3) this season and should dominate as he is shooting 42.2 percent from three in his last nine games.

Doncic has been playing incredibly well in his last ten games as he is averaging 30.3 points, 9.9 rebounds, 10.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, and 1.6 steals in that span. The Hawks are 13-3 Against The Spread in their last 16 games against the Mavs, while the under is 5-2 in their last seven games.

All in all, go with Atlanta to score the ball well as well as the under. 

New Orleans Pelicans @ Houston Rockets (7 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: NO -5.5

Total Points: 231.5

These teams have both been struggling this season, and New Orleans has been dealing with some injuries as point guard Kira Lewis Jr (knee), point guard Didi Louzada, center Willy Hernangomez (illness), shooting guard Garrett Temple (illness), and power forward Zion Williamson (foot) are all out for the Pelicans, but the combination of Ingram and Josh Hart should score enough to dominate the weaker Rockets team.

Small forward Brandon Ingram has been stepping up a bit in their last two games as he is averaging 24.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, eight assists, 1.5 blocks, and one steal. The defenses have been struggling a bit in the last five games as the Rockets are giving up 123.2 points while the Pelicans are allowing 104.4 points. Houston is last in the NBA with 117 points per game allowed.

The over has hit in each of the last four games, so go with over 231.5 points as well as New Orleans to cover the spread.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Los Angeles Clippers (9 p.m.)

Favored Team and Spread: MIL -5

Total Points: 228

The Bucks are on the second half of a Wear Coast back-to-back while the Clippers have not played since Thursday, so fatigue can be a major factor here.

Milwaukee is 2-5-1 Against The Spread in their last eight games against Los Angeles so go with the Clippers to cover getting five points.

The under hit in each of the previous six road games for the Bucks against teams with winning home records and also in six of the last seven Clippers Sunday games, so go with under 228 points as well.
