Our NBA analyst shares his three top totals on Sunday’s card. Go inside to find out what those NBA picks are, and why he’s opted to bet on them.

***Sunday's NBA Prop Bets***

Chicago Bulls vs. Los Angeles Clippers 3:35 PM ET
Chicago has scored 91 points or less in each of their previous three games. The Bulls have gone 12-4 over the total versus non-conference opponents this season, and there was a combined average of just 194.0 points scored per game.

The Clippers have gone under the total in five straight games, and there was a combined average of only 191.2 points scored per contest. During that stretch, they’ve converted on a terrible 63.4% of its free throw attempts, and averaged a mere 79 field goal attempts per game which equates to a fairly slow offensive pace.

These teams met once this season with Chicago winning 83-80 at home. That game easily went under the total of 204.0 by a massive 41.0 points. I look for a similar type of contest today with all things being considered.

Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic 6:05 PM ET
Boston has scored 109 points or more in each of their last nine and ten of its previous eleven games. The Celtics have been playing at a torrid offensive pace of late, evidenced by 90 field goal attempts or more in seven of their last ten outings.

Orlando has gone over the total in four straight games, and there was a combined average of 215.0 points scored per contest.

These teams played each other just two days ago in Boston, and the Celtics won 113-94. That contest went over the total of 205.5. I’m calling for a high scoring game relative to the current total, and one of my Sunday NBA picks will be indicative of that prediction.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Portland Trailblazers 9:05 PM ET
Minnesota has gone over the total in six consecutive games, and there was a combined average of 213.3 points scored per contest. They’ve also gone over the total in nine of its last ten away games. The Timberwolves have allowed an average of 114.3 points per game in their previous three games, and its opponents shot a blistering hot 52.0% from the field. On a positive note, Minnesota has averaged 106.8 points per game while shooting a stellar 50.4% from the field during their previous four contests.

Portland has scored 109 points or more in three consecutive games. During that time frame they attempted 90 field goal attempts or more on each occasion, and shot an impressive 50.4% from the floor.

According to the current NBA odds board at Heritage, they provide me with a best combination of number and price for this specific NBA pick.
