We're back with a full schedule tonight, so follow along with us as we weed through the NBA odds to find the best possible value.
There are 11 games on the slate to start off the week. The heaviest favorites are the Pacers (-15.5 vs. Orlando), Nets (-11 vs. Philadelphia), Heat (-9.5 vs. Detroit), Mavericks (-9 vs. Cleveland) and Thunder (-8 vs. Memphis).
Check out which five matchups we are tracking closely below.
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets
Covered by Jordan Sharp
The Nets had been killing it, but now they've dropped three games in a row heading into tonight's battle with the 76ers. All signs are pointing to a blowout win for Brooklyn in this spot though, with the NBA odds showing the home team favored by as many as 11 points.
Does Jordan believe the value is in laying the chalk? You'll have to wait and see, as his favorite play should be available for reading shortly.
NBA Pick: Check back later!
Covered by Jeff Grant
Fresh off an impressive win over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, the Heat try to keep it going when they entertain the hit-or-miss Pistons. Right now the defending champions are favored by 9.5 points, with the total at 207.5
Instead of taking a chance on either side with his NBA picks, Jeff has decided to roll with the OVER in hoping we'll see another shootout. Both head-to-head meetings this season have seen the OVER cash – will it do so again tonight?
NBA Pick: OVER 207.5
Covered by Matthew Jordan
An even 5-5 SU mark over their last 10, coupled with Oklahoma City's surge, has the Spurs three games back for the top seed in the Western Conference. They could really use a win in the Big Easy tonight.
The NBA odds are relatively tight though, as San Antonio is favored by only 4.5 points against a New Orleans team that's gone 11-11 SU at home this season. Matthew is recommending that readers back the Pelicans, as well as the UNDER with their sports picks.
NBA Pick: Pelicans +4.5 and UNDER
Covered by Jason Lake
The Clippers continue to chug along without Chris Paul marshaling both ends of the court. They currently hold the fourth seed in the West. Meanwhile, the Nuggets have gone 4-6 SU over their last 10, pushing them down to 11th in the conference.
For tonight's game in Denver, the Clippers are small road favorites (-2.5), but Jason thinks we'd best be served by going with the UNDER. The last three head-to-head meetings between these teams have all fallen below the posted O/U.
NBA Pick: UNDER 215
Covered by Matthew Jordan
This should be one of the best games of the night. The Thunder finally had their winning streak ended in the nation's capital, but they'll try to start a new one tonight at home to the Grizzlies.
It's not going to be easy. Memphis has been playing very good basketball lately, winning six in a row and nine of their previous ten, which in turn has helped them rise into the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Matthew sees a lot of value on the red-hot Grizzlies in this NBA betting situation, and also likes the OVER.
NBA Pick: Grizzlies +7 and OVER
