Suns vs Kings: Kings Moneyline (-110)
WAGER: 1 Unit
I wanted to take the Sacramento Kings to cover the spread in this spot, but since this game is a pick ’em, I have no choice but to roll with the moneyline.
The Kings, now 10-8 and losers of two in a row, return home for the first time in over a week to take on one of the Western Conference’s best in the Phoenix Suns. This is a fantastic spot to back The Beam Team.
Sacramento is an impressive 6-3 at home this season, while Phoenix is just 2-5 on the road. The Kings are also a league-best 12-6 against the spread, for what it’s worth.
This is a huge opportunity for the Kings to make a statement and prove that they’re legit, making this my NBA bet of the day.
Pacers vs Lakers: Pacers +3 (-110)
WAGER: 1 Unit
Speaking of ATS records, the Indiana Pacers are 12-7, which is good for third-best in the league. They consistently keep games closer than they’re supposed to be, and their seventh-ranked scoring offense is a big reason why.
On the other hand, the Los Angeles Lakers are just 7-11 against the spread this year, which is the third-worst in the Association. Injuries have played a big role in their mediocre play, but still, the Lakers place 27th in offensive rating.
Indiana matches up well against Los Angeles, and I’m expecting its guards — namely Tyrese Haliburton and Bennedict Mathurin — to have impressive showings. Anthony Davis will have a big night, but if the Pacers can minimize the damage elsewhere, they’ll cover.
I’m also featuring this game in my Best NBA Parlays Today, so consider seeing how else I recommend wagering on this matchup.
Thunder vs Pelicans: Over 232.5 Points (-110)
WAGER: 1 Unit
The Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans are two of the most Over-friendly teams in the NBA. Overs are 14-6 in Thunder games — the highest percentage in the league — while the Pelicans are only a few spots behind at 11-8.
Even with CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram likely missing tonight’s contest, I quite like the Over between these two teams at 232.5 points. Both groups rank inside the top six in points per game and feature efficient scorers.
