    New York Knicks vs Washington Wizards Prediction

    New York Knicks vs Washington Wizards Odds

    Time: 7pm EST
    Spread: NYK +7 (-105), WAS -7 (-115)
    Moneyline: NYK +255, WAS -310
    Over/Under: 216 (-110)
    Pick: Washington Wizards ML

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: NYC 45%, WAS 48%
    3 Pointer %: NYC 36%, WAS 37%
    Free Throw %: NYC 79%, 78%

    In the last match-up, Washington won 113-110 in New York. Tonight, Wizards are playing at home and I believe they can take this game against New York Knicks who have struggled somehow this season.

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Toronto Raptors Prediction

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Toronto Raptors Odds

    Time: 7pm EST
    Spread: NOP +8 (-115), TOR -8 (-105)
    Moneyline: NOP +280, TOR -360
    Over/Under: 215 O(-115), U(-105)
    Pick: Toronto Raptors ML

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: NOP 44%, TOR 46%
    3 Pointer %: NOP 36%, TOR 38%
    Free Throw %: NOP 75%, TOR 81%

    Toronto Raptors are playing at home and average a better field goal, 3-pointer, and free throw percentage per game. I can’t New Orleans Pelicans winning this game. So I am taking Toronto on the moneyline because I am not sure they will cover the spread.

    Sacramento Kings vs Houston Rockets Prediction

    Sacramento Kings vs Houston Rockets Odds

    Time: 8pm EST
    Spread: SAC +12 (-110), HOU -12 (-110)
    Moneyline: SAC +600, HOU -1000
    Over/Under: 225 O(-105), U(-115)
    Pick: Houston Rockets -12

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: SAC 46%, HOU 47%
    3 Pointer %: SAC 36%, HOU 37%
    Free Throw %: SAC 78%, HOU 77%

    In the last game, Houston won 123-98. Coming into this game the Rockets are coming off a road loss. So being that this game is at home. I expect them to win the game and cover the spread. My pick is Houston Rockets -12 against the spread.

    Oklahoma City Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs Prediction

    Oklahoma City Thunder vs San Antonio Spurs Odds

    Time: 8:30pm EST
    Spread: OKC +9½ (-115), SAN -9½ (-105)
    Moneyline: OKC +350, SAN -500
    Over/Under: 210 O(-115), U(-105)
    Pick: Over 210

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: OKC 46%, SAN 48%
    3 Pointer %: OKC 32%, SAN 41%
    Free Throw %: OKC 74%, SAN 81%

    Both teams know how to put up huge numbers. The safe bet is to go with the over. Might be the easiest win of the night for us bettors.

    Charlotte Hornets vs Portland Trail Blazers Prediction

    Charlotte Hornets vs Portland Trail Blazers Odds

    Time: 10pm EST
    Spread: CHA +3½ (-110), POR -3½ (-110)
    Moneyline: CHA +145, POR -165
    Over/Under: 215 O(-105), U(-115)
    Pick: Charlotte Hornets +3.5

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: CHA 44%, POR 46%
    3 Pointer %: CHA 36%, POR 36%
    Free Throw %: CHA 80%, POR 78%

    The last game Hornets won 107-85 in Charlotte. However, this time around the game is in Portland. Which factors in how players reaction to the crowd effects their play. I am still taking the Hornets against the spread. I feel Charlotte will either take this game or lose by 1 or 2 points.

    Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction

    Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers Odds

    Time: 10:30pm EST
    Spread: DEN -2 (-110), LAL +2 (-110)
    Moneyline: DEN -130, LAL +110
    Over/Under: 226 (-110)
    Pick: Over 226

    Averages This Season
    Field Goal %: DEN 46%, LAL 44%
    3 Pointer %: DEN 36%, LAL 35%
    Free Throw %: DEN 76%, LAL 77%

    The last time these teams played each other, Denver took the victory 127-121. To me it seems as though either team knows what defense is so I am taking the over 226.
