Best basketball bets to make on Sunday

Here are a few NBA betting options to consider with odds courtesy of BetOnline.
The Raptors take an unblemished 7-0 record against divisional opponents into action on Sunday afternoon when they host the visiting New York Knicks at Air Canada Centre.
Winners of back-to-back games, the Raptors enter action on Sunday as -475 favorites on home court, where they’ve posted a remarkable 15-5 record this season. The Knicks are a mess — winning just two out of their last 10 games — as they head to Toronto as +400 underdogs.
Sitting second in the Eastern Conference — three games behind the defending champion Cavaliers — the Raptors continue to win games with their high-powered offense.
Toronto sits third overall in points per game, averaging 111.2. Much of that has been propelled by the play of star guard DeMar DeRozan, who is fifth in league scoring with 28.2 points per game. The Raptors have been getting it done on defense as well, with the club ranking second overall in steals (9.1 per game).
Toronto has dominated the head-to-head matchup over the last 10 meetings against New York, winning seven times over that period.
The total points projection for Saturday’s match is set at 217. Take the over as the Raptors will once again dominate offensively to defeat the vulnerable Knicks.
Pick: Toronto Raptors (-475) and the Over (217)
Two teams hovering around the playoff cut-off line in the Western Conference will do battle on Sunday when the Oklahoma City Thunder pay a visit to Sacramento to face the Kings.
The Thunder, who have won three of their last four games, enter action on Sunday as -125 favorites. The Kings on the other hand have dropped four of their last five and head into their home game as +105 underdogs.
Sacramento defenders will have their hands full with OKC point guard Russell Westbrook, who continues to lead the NBA in scoring — averaging 30.8 points per game. But the Kings have a beast of his own — DeMarcus Cousins, who is sixth in league scoring with 28 points per game.
OKC holds a slight advantage in the head-to-head matchup, defeating the Kings six times over the last 10 meetings. However in their last encounter earlier this season, the Kings walked away with a 116-101 victory.
The projected total points line has been set to 212, but don’t expect a high-scoring affair on Sunday, as the Kings will once again top the Thunder in thrilling fashion.
Pick: Sacramento Kings (+105) and the Under (212)
Two clubs looking to shake out of lengthy losing streaks will square off in a cross-conference clash on Sunday when the Detroit Pistons travel to California to face the Los Angeles Kings.
Both teams have lost three straight, but the Pistons enter action on Sunday as -135 favorites on the road, where the club has struggled all season long. Life after Kobe Bryant continues to hurt the Lakers, who sits 13th in the Western Conference with a dreadful 15-29 record. The Lakers are +115 underdogs against the Pistons.
If there’s one thing the Pistons have certainly done well this season, it’s playing defense. Detroit ranks fifth overall in defense, allowing on average 101.1 points per game. It’s at the other end of the floor where the club has struggled, as the Pistons have averaged just 99.7 points per game —24th in the NBA.
The Lakers will have a tough time grabbing boards against a Pistons team that averages 43.6 rebounds per game. Andre Drummond leads the club in that department, pulling down 13.4 rebounds per game, which ranks third in the league.
Los Angeles will once again have to rely on Lou Williams, who leads the team in scoring with 17.5 points per game.
Thinking of an over/under wager? The line for Sunday night is 211, but keep in mind that three of the last four meetings between these two clubs have produced under results.
Pick: Detroit Pistons (-135) and the Under (211)
