After another perfect night of NBA Picks, I have cashed my last four plays in a row coming into Monday night. There are eight games on tap for us this evening, and there is some NBA Odds value to be had!

Sixers vs. Heat
Heat fans are still celebrating the acquisition of Goran Dragic and mourning the loss of Chris Bosh for the season. However despite losing their best player for the rest of the year, the Heat are -11 ½ favorites against the Sixers today. However I am much more interested in the total of 189 points.

While the Sixers have been playing better defense as of late, they will have some issues with the Heat here. Philadelphia has no one who can defend Dwyane Wade on the perimeter, and probably no one who can counter Hassan Whiteside in the post. Add on Goran Dragic, and the Heat should have no issues scoring in this one.

Miami has cashed the over in their last four games in a row, and the over is also 4-0 in their last four games as favorites. The over is also 4-1 in their last five games from American Airlines Arena in Miami. Look for a slower paced game, but with a total of only 189 points, it would surprise me to see either one of these teams fail to get above 90 points. Take the over and add it to your NBA picks.

NBA Pick: OVER 189

We Offer a Pair of Totals for You to Increase Your Profit Tonight

Bucks vs. Bulls
The Bulls and Bucks take to the court tonight in Chicago, a place that hasn’t been very kind to the Bulls this season. They are one of the worst home teams among winning teams in the NBA, and against a scrappy team like Milwaukee, the Bulls could have some problems. Even though the Bucks traded away their best player in Brandon Knight, (they were going to lose him anyway this summer) Milwaukee is still only a +7 ½ underdog against the Bulls tonight, with a total of 193 ½ on the posted NBA betting odds.

With the Bulls very big size advantage in the paint, the Bucks are going to have issues getting into the paint tonight, but on the other side, the Bulls' size has played against them on defense some this season when oppossing teams go small. If the Bucks counter with a smaller lineup, it coudl also lead to some higher scoring tonight. 

Once again the spread is a little volatile, so the total presents us with a safer and more reliable wager tonight. The Bulls’ defense hasn’t been great this season, and I doubt it improves against the Bucks. At home this season, the Bulls have cashed the over at 23-10, and they are 20-9 cashing the over as a home favorite. The Bulls are also 7-2 cashing the over in their last nine games against winning teams, and 8-3 cashing the over in their last 11 games as favorites between -5 and -10 ½. The Bucks on the other hand have cashed the over in four of their last five road games, and they are 8-1 cashing the over this season following a double digit home loss. Even though it could be more of a defensive struggle tonight, both teams should give up enough points for the low total of 193 ½ to cash the over.

NBA Pick: OVER 193 ½ at 5Dimes
