Against The Spread: Golden State Warriors at Indiana Pacers
|Golden State spread (-3)||-110||-110|
|Indiana spread (+3)||-110||-110|
This game will have a lot of eyeballs on it, from the top online sportsbooks to basketball historians. That's because Steph Curry could make his permanent mark on the NBA record books this game. It set-ups for a must-watch AND must-bet (against the spread line) between the Warriors and Pacers.
Of course, Curry — a leading MVP candidate this season, per many basketball betting bookies — is seven three-pointers shy of passing Ray Allen on the all-time threes made list. There was talk head coach Steve Kerr was going to rest him given the Warriors in the middle of a five-game road trip. However, it's expected Curry will be a go for Monday and that record could come down.
Surely, there's a prop bet available whether Curry makes history this game or not, but we're skipping it. Only because we believe the spread is being overlooked. You see, the Dubs have cooled off as of late. They've lost three of the previous six and as we said, are in the middle of an East Coast road trip (that started badly with a loss to Philadelphia).
On the flip side, the Pacers are heating up. They've won three in a row at home and we think that number could become four on Monday. We'll play it safe and bet the spread only — not the moneyline — but don't overlook Indiana despite all the hoopla surrounding Curry right now.
Over/Under Points: Sacramento Kings at Toronto Raptors
At this point, any game involving the Kings should strongly be considered an over play. Why? This defense is downright bowling-shoe ugly and there's no indication it'll get better on the last leg of a road trip versus the Raptors.
On Saturday night, Sacramento gave up 81 points to a so-so Cavs team. 81 points — not a typo either! On the season, the Kings are allowing 114 points per game — second-worst in the entire league. With tired legs in this road trip, we fully expect those defensive woes to continue, which should push this game into over territory.
Moneyline: Philadelphia 76ers at Memphis Grizzlies
The closest moneyline of the night is between the 76ers and Grizzlies. The spread is only two points so you're better off betting who'll win straight up, hence why we're going down that route.
Both teams are playing equally well as of late. Memphis has won seven of the last 10, which has shot them up to fourth in the West standings. The Sixers, meanwhile, have shrugged off the Ben Simmons drama and are winners of six of the last ten. So something's got to give in this game!
Here's what caught our eye when making a pick — Philly has shown a strong side while playing away from home. This season, they are 9-6 on the road (while only 6-6 at home) and have won three straight. We believe they'll outmuscle the young-and-inexperienced Grizzlies to win this game just barely.
Against The Spread: Charlotte Hornets at Dallas Mavericks
|Charlotte spread (+3)||-110||-110|
|Dallas spread (-3)||-110||-110|
Given how depleted the Charlotte roster is due to COVID-19, we're actually surprised this Hornets-Mavs spread is only three points. LaMelo Ball, Jalen McDaniels, Mason Plumlee, and Ish Smith are all in the NBA's Health and Safety Protocol, therefore, are out. PJ Washington is also questionable to play with a non-COVID illness.
The Hornets were able to overcome the Kings a few nights ago despite this, but like we said before, Sacramento is awful. We can't say the same about Dallas. They should be able to gut out this victory at home and cover the spread in the process.
