Today’s NBA Online Betting Game Lines

Today’s NBA Online Betting Game Lines
The NBA is throwing out a full, heaping plate of action Monday. Fourteen teams of the league's teams are in action, and that means plenty of successful betting opportunities. We take you through every game so that you can ensure you're getting the most out of your wagers.

NBA Picks & Odds Analysis

Cleveland Cavaliers (-8.5) vs. Indiana Pacers (+8.5)

Cavs

The Cavaliers, by their own projected standards, are a mess. Their most recent loss, a shellacking handed out by the Washington Wizards, came without LeBron James in the lineup. They’re at home, which helps. But the Pacers’ new starting lineup is a statistical superhero, so +8.5 is too good to pass up.

The Pick: Pacers (+8.5)

Washington Wizards (-12.5) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (+12.5)

Wizards

Let’s assume the Wizards are riding high after destroying the Cavaliers. The Sixers are bad, really bad. Their defense can be okay at certain stages, but the Wizards have enough firepower to cover this spread and flirt with a 20-point blowout victory.

The Pick: Wizards (-12.5)

Boston Celtics (-6) vs. Utah Jazz (+6)

Celtics

Bet against the Celtics at your own peril. The Jazz have been up and down all season, and they aren’t built to play with the full-court poise Boston champions. The Celtics are fast, explosive and, on any given night, lock it down defensively. They should have no trouble winning this one single-handedly.

The Pick: Celtics (-6)

Milwaukee Bucks (+2.5) vs. Houston Rockets (-2.5)

Rockets

Talk about tough choices. The Rockets have been largely unpredictable this season, especially on the road, while the Bucks’ defense is experiencing a renaissance of sorts. Still, broken-record style, the Rockets have enough talent to destroy any opponent when they’re engaged. The spread is small enough to bet on them with some semblance of confidence.

The Pick: Rockets (-2.5)

Denver Nuggets (+2.5) vs. Memphis Grizzlies (-2.5)

Nuggets

The Grizzlies are 2.5 point favorites on the road without Marc Gasol. Against a Nuggets squad that has proved to be super scary at home. 

Does this make any sense whatsoever? No. So bet accordingly.

The Pick: Nuggets (+2.5)

Sacramento Kings (+7.5) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (-7.5)

Thunder

The Kings are, for some reason, always a threat to take down superior opponents. It makes absolutely no sense but their intermittent offensive detonations are potent. They play a fast-paced style that can be tough to defend and the Thunder’s points-prevention prowess has been, to put it kindly, inconsistent this season.

Then again we’re still talking about the Kings, masters of disappointment. The Thunder have shown they can get out in front of really good teams, even if they can’t hold those leads. Dismantling an inferior Kings squad should be no problem.

The Pick: Thunder (-7.5)

Los Angeles Clippers (-13) vs. Brooklyn Nets (+13)

 Clippers

Double-digit spreads can be scary. This one, however, is not. The Nets are that bad, and the Clippers are that good. Los Angeles’ offense is, for the moment, better without Blake Griffin, and it will stretch a flimsy Nets defense beyond reasonable function.

Brooklyn doesn’t have the requisite shooters to combat Los Angeles’ floor spacing, and the Nets have won just six games on the road all season—one of which has come against a projected Western Conference playoff foe.

Expect the Clippers to swallow Brooklyn whole.

The Pick: Clippers (-13)

Have a look at the standings and future matchups while ensuring you know how to properly wager on the NBA.
