Without further ado, let’s dive into our favorite NBA betting plays for Monday’s slate.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Utah Jazz (-1.5)

This is going to be a fun one on Monday night when the Nets and Jazz square off in Brooklyn. Utah is on the second night of a back-to-back after playing the Knicks, so fatigue could seriously play a factor if Kevin Durant gets hot early. Speaking of Durant, this feels like the perfect opportunity to make another emphatic statement. Durant carries the short-handed Nets to another impressive victory, this time against the surging Jazz.

Pick: Nets +1.5

PrizePicks Power Play: Kevin Durant over 29.5 points, Donovan Mitchell over 26.5 points, Rudy Gobert over 13 rebounds, Andre Drummond over 9.5 rebounds

Chicago Bulls (-4) vs. Toronto Raptors

Both of these teams are right in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race. In this matchup on Monday, we’re siding with the home team. The Bulls’ dynamic scoring duo of DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine is deadly, plus Nikola Vucevic should feast inside against the Raptors’ lack of big man depth. We feel confident locking in the Bulls to cover the 4-point spread versus Toronto.

Pick: Bulls -4

PrizePicks Power Play: DeMar DeRozan over 25.5 points, Pascal Siakam over 23.5 points, Nikola Vucevic over 10.5 rebounds, Fred VanVleet over 5.5 assists

Dallas Mavericks (-2) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

I can’t wait to watch this game on Monday night. There are so many interesting angles, as far as young talent in the Association goes. Luka Doncic is a superstar for the Mavericks, but the Timberwolves’ young core are all taking leaps together as well. Minnesota is one of the hottest teams in basketball right now, but can they contain Doncic? That’s the biggest key to the game, which we feel favors Dallas. Doncic is so tough to defend all game, so we’re forecasting one of those special performances from the Slovenian phenom. Hammer the Mavericks in this spot.

Pick: Mavericks -2

PrizePicks Power Play: Luka Doncic over 30.5 points, Anthony Edwards over 20.5 points, Jarred Vanderbilt over 8.5 rebounds, Dwight Powell over 5.5 rebounds
