7pm - Philadelphia at Cleveland -16.5 O/U 193
The Sixers gave Atlanta all they could handle before finally losing 91-85 on Saturday. Philly won their 2 prior games. The Cavs have now won 10 in a row. I'll take the feisty Sixers to cover this big number on the road.
Cleveland 106 Philadelphia 96
7pm - Charlotte at Washington -7.5 O/U 188.5
The Hornets have won 2 of 3 and 5 of 7. The Wizards have dropped 2 straight and have lost 4 of 6 overall. Wall is having migraines and is questionable, although he played pretty well in Saturday's OT loss to the Raptors. I still think Charlotte is good enough to cover here, even if Wall plays.
Washington 95 Charlotte 89
7:30pm - L.A. Clippers -9 at Brooklyn O/U 200
The Clippers have won 7 of 8 and are 2-1 so far on this current roadie. The Nets lost in OT to the Raptors on Friday for their 4th straight loss. Joe Johnson is questionable for the Nets, plus I can't overlook the 123-84 Clipper win over Brooklyn in L.A. on Jan 22. Clips to win and cover.
L.A. Clippers 118 Brooklyn 100
7:30pm - Milwaukee at Toronto -5.5 O/U 203.5
The Bucks have won 3 straight and 4 of 5. The Raptors have won 6 in a row. The last 2 in OT. I think it will be close, but Toronto has found their winning way again and I'll back them to cover this reasonable number at home.
Toronto 106 Milwaukee 98
8pm - Atlanta -3.5 at New Orleans O/U 194
Who can stop the Hawks? Atlanta has now on 19 in a row after sidestepping a mild scare in a 91-85 win over the Sixers on Saturday. The Pelicans have won 5 of 6 and should have Anthony Davis in the lineup although he has been battling a groin injury. Even though the Hawks have failed to cover 3 of the last 4, this is a more reasonable spread and I'll back the Hawks.
Atlanta 103 New Orleans 97
8pm - Orlando at Oklahoma City -13.5 O/U 209.5
The Magic have lost 8 in a row. The Thunder have lost 4 of 5. Both teams dreadful lately ATS, Orlando 1-7 and OKC 0-5. The Thunder won 127-99 in Orlando on Jan. 18. Using that benchmark, I'll give the points here.
Oklahoma City 120 Orlando 95
8:30pm - Minnesota at Dallas -11.5 O/U 207
The Timberwolves have lost 2 straight and 7 of 8. The Mavs have rebounded with 2 straight wins after a 4 game skid. Still, not ready to give double digits. Rondo's Out and Parsons is probable.
Dallas 107 Minnesota 99
9pm - Memphis -2.5 at Phoenix O/U 202.5
The Grizzlies have won 6 in a row and 10 of 11 games. The Suns lost at Golden State on Saturday and are 6-3 over their last 9. I don't know how Memphis does it, but they do. I guess they'll win another tonight.
Memphis 103 Phoenix 98
