Tonight’s NBA games have some interesting storylines. The article by Andre Snellings, ESPN, talks about some potential bets for Monday night.
First, Snellings recommends taking the over for Toronto Raptors’ Scottie Barnes, at 19.5 points. Barnes has had two poor scoring games recently, but he scored over 20 points in six straight games before that. The matchup on Monday is against a Wizards team that has been giving up a lot of points to opposing small forwards.
The second bet recommended is for the Chicago Bulls at +8.0 over the Milwaukee Bucks. Snellings believes that the Bucks have not been covering games this season and that they have yet to win by the margins they typically would. The ESPN game predictor also suggests that the Bulls may not win, but at least they should lose by a margin of fewer than eight points.
On the other side, Snellings recommends a bet on Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks, to go over 28.5 points. Antetokounmpo has scored 89 points in his last two games and has been consistently putting up big numbers.
Conversely, Snellings advocates for an under on Jalen Brunson’s scoring against the Celtics, suggesting that Brunson’s average points per game has been relatively low when playing against them.
Lastly, Snellings recommends taking the over on Kevin Huerter, to make 2.5 or more 3-pointers in the game. He has started the season cold but has shown signs of improvement recently.
The article also features a breakdown of tonight’s lines and BPI predictions for four games happening on Monday: New York Knicks at Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards at Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks, and Cleveland Cavaliers at Sacramento Kings.Each game features a prediction and information about the injury report for each team.
