Our handicapper shares his top two totals on Monday’s card. Come inside before making any of your NBA picks today, and profit from this compelling betting preview.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic
These teams have seen all three of their meetings go over the total this season. Orlando averaged 108.0 points scored per game, shot 49.2%, and converted on an excellent 44% of its three point attempts during those three contests. Milwaukee also made a stellar 48.9% of their field goal tries during those three encounters.

Milwaukee has been horrible defensively during its previous five games, allowing 110.6 points per outing, and permitting their opponents shoot a sizzling hot 51.1%. They’ve seen six of their last nine road games go over the total, and there was a combined 209.5 points scored per contest. Since game 42 of the season, Milwaukee has gone 10-1 over the total versus opponents allowing an average of 103.0 points or more per game. Their opponent on Monday qualifies in that regard, Orlando is allowing 103.6 points per game during this 2015-2016 NBA campaign.

Speaking of Orlando, they’ve gone over the total in each of their previous seven games. Those contests surpassed the total by an average of 12.1 points per outing. During that stretch, Orlando is scoring 113.4 points per game, shooting 51.6%, and has made an impressive 39.0% of its three point attempts. The Magic’s defensive play has been shoddy of late, evidenced by them allowing 110.6 points per contest, and their opponents have averaged a fairly high 27 free throw attempts per outing during its last five games.

Current NBA odds at MyBookie.com clearly provides me with an optimum number for this specific wager.

Washington Wizards vs. Brooklyn Nets
Washington has seen each of their previous four outings go over the total. There was a combined 217.3 points per game scored in those contests. Washington shot a stellar 48.2%, and also allowed opponents to convert on 40.2% of their three point attempts during that specific time period. They’ve seen each of their two encounters against Brooklyn go over the total this season.

Brooklyn has allowed 105 points or more in nine straight and fourteen of its last fifteen games. The Nets have gone over the total in each of its previous three games, and their 121.0 points allowed per contest during those outings is a major reason why. Brooklyn has also seen twelve of their previous sixteen home games go over the total.

I like this contest to be a high scoring affair, and one of my Monday NBA picks will concur with that prediction.
