Our expert handicapper Ross Benjamin shares his top two totals on Tuesday’s card. These NBA picks have gone a red-hot 17-8 (68%) during the past ten days!

Charlotte Hornets vs. Brooklyn Nets 7:35 PM ET
Charlotte is coming off a 91-88 home against San Antonio last night. They’ve seen each of their previous four games go over the total when playing with no rest, and there was a combined 219.7 points scored per contest. Charlotte has also gone over the total in six straight away games following a home contest when they scored less than 100 points. In addition, they’ve gone over the number in its last five away contests when the total is 207.0 or more, and there was a combined 223.8 points scored per game. Charlotte has faced Brooklyn twice this season, scored an average of 110.0 points per game, and shot a stellar 49.7%.

Brooklyn has gone 11-1 over the total in its last twelve home games. During that stretch at the Barclays Center, they’ve shot 49.1%, and also converted on an excellent 44.2% of their three point attempts. Brooklyn enters today’s game having seen each of its previous four outings surpass the total, and there was a lofty 223.0 points combined being scored per game. During that time period, they allowed opponents to shoot 51.5% from the floor.

I like this game to be a high scoring affair, and one of my Tuesday NBA picks will be indicative of that prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers 10:35 PM ET
Memphis is coming off a 103-97 win last night in Phoenix. They’ve gone 7-2 under the total in their last nine games when playing with no rest. Those nine contests averaged only a combined 191.5 points scored per game. Despite their 103 point scoring output at Phoenix on Monday, Memphis has averaged a paltry 89.8 points scored per game, and shot an awful 36.4% during its previous five road contests.

The Lakers have gone 6-1 under the total in its last seven games, and that includes 3-0 during their previous three. Those previous three contests had an average total of 213.0, and went under the number by a massive 24.3 points per contest. Los Angeles has been very respectable on defensive of late, allowing 98 points or less in four of its last six outings. The Lakers are 24-10 (70.6%) under the total at home this season, and that includes 8-1 under during its previous nine played at the Staples Center.

The current NBA odds at BetOnline have a total of 203.5 for this contest, and they clearly provide me with a best number for this specific wager.
