October 22, 2018

Monday presents a solid slate of NBA action, with 9 scheduled games available for bettors to choose from. Five contests tonight opened with a spread of 9 points or higher, which leads to an interesting lack of parity in tonight’s projected outcomes. I like to tread with caution when betting double-digits spreads in today’s NBA; generally small talent gaps and garbage time decisions can be the difference between a cover and a bad beat. With that in mind, here are tonight’s picks:

  • 7:30 PM EST | Charlotte Hornets vs. Toronto Raptors (-9)
  • 7:30 PM EST | Orlando Magic (+11.5) vs. Boston Celtics
  • 8:00 PM EST | New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks (-11)
  • 8:30 PM EST | Chicago Bulls (+5.5) vs. Dallas Mavericks
  • 9:00 PM EST | Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz (-10)
  • 10:00 PM EST | Washington Wizards vs. Portland Trail Blazers (-4.5)
  • 10:30 PM EST | Phoenix Suns vs. Golden State Warriors (-12.5)

7:30 PM | Hornets vs. Raptors (-9)

7:30 PM | Magic (+11.5) vs. Celtics
