Our expert NBA handicapper shares his top two totals on Friday’s card. Go inside before making any of your NBA picks today and enjoy his insightful betting preview.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks 8:05 PM ET
Milwaukee has gone 4-1 under the total in its last five, and during seven of their previous ten games. They’ve scored 96 points or less in four of their previous five outings, and averaged a enormously low 75 field goal attempts per game. The Bucks have been solid defensively over that five game span, holding opponents to only 42.7% shooting.

Atlanta has seen six of their last eight home games go under the total. The Hawks have also allowed 98 points or less in nine of their previous fourteen games overall.

Relative to the total, I like this game to be a low scoring affair. One of my Friday NBA picks will be indicative of that prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. San Antonio Spurs 8:35 PM ET
Memphis has faced San Antonio twice this season, and they struggled offensively in each of those contests. The Grizzlies averaged just 82.5 points per game and shot an awful 40.4%. Those two meetings between these Southwest Division rivals averaged only a combined 153 field goal attempts per game, and by NBA standards is an extremely slow offensive tempo.

San Antonio has allowed 91 points or less in five of its last six, and during six of their previous eight games. They’ve gone 11-4 under the total in their last 15 games, and allowed less than 100 points on eleven of those occasions. San Antonio averaged just 97.5 points scored per contest in their two encounters with Milwaukee this season.

The current NBA odds at The Greek offer me a best number for this specific wager.
