Our NBA handicapping professional shares his two top NBA picks on Monday’s card. Go inside to find out what those are and why he’s chosen them.

Oklahoma City vs. Atlanta 8:05 PM ET
Oklahoma City has averaged a robust 110.3 points per game during their previous four contests, and has also shot a sizzling 51.5% from the field during that stretch. The Thunder will be facing a team (Hawks) on Monday that’s allowing opponents to shoot 38.3% from beyond three point line when playing at home. Oklahoma City away games have averaged a combined 225.6 points scored per contest, and the Thunder has shot an outstanding 43.1% from three point territory in those six outings.

Atlanta has seen four of their previous five games go over the total. The Hawks are averaging 104.3 points, shooting 47.9% from the field, and have converted on a stellar 37.4% of their three point attempts at home this season.

I like this game to be a very high scoring affair, and one of my NBA picks on Monday will emulate that prediction.

San Antonio vs Chicago 8:05 PM ET
San Antonio has allowed an average of just 83.4 points per game during their previous five contests. That’s no fluke considering their allowing only just 89.7 points per game this season, and that’s best in the NBA. The Spurs are 5-1 under the total in their previous six games.

Chicago has gone under the total in all six of their home games this season, and is 11-3 under the number in all its games this year. The Bulls do prefer to play an up tempo style, but they’re shooting a poor 42.2% from the field. However, they’re allowing opponents shoot just 41.0% from the floor this year. Tonight will be only their third game in the last ten days. Chicago is 23-6 under the total during the past two seasons when playing four or fewer games during a ten day period.

According to NBA odds, they provide a best combination of number and price for this specific wager.

NBA Pick: Under 189 at Pinnacle
