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