Hey there, my name is Adam Ronis and I'll be contributing to the NBA betting coverage here at Pickswise. I have been in the Fantasy Sports industry for more than a decade and have been providing betting picks over at Fantasy Alarm for the last two seasons. The NBA is a lot of fun and I'll be here to guide you with winning picks.

There are 9 games on the schedule Friday night in the NBA. Four games have a spread of 4 points or fewer and the rest are 2 points or fewer. It’s a rare night with 3 games having totals of at least 227 points. As always, stay up to date on the latest injury news since lines can change. Bets may be added throughout the day if there are additional spots that arise, so be sure to check back later in the day. My record is 26-18 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight.

Los Angeles Lakers at Oklahoma City Thunder (+5)

The Lakers aren’t a good basketball team right now. They are coming off a 108-95 loss to the Grizzlies last night and are 13-13, including 4-6 on the road. The Lakers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 as a road favorite. They are 7-20-1 ATS in the last 28 as a favorite and 9-17 ATS this season. The Thunder are a rebuilding team, but they compete against a lot of good teams and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games. They are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 as an underdog and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. The teams have met twice this season and OKC won both times via scores of 123-115 and 107-104.

Evan Mobley Over 7.5 Rebounds (-104 on FanDuel)

Mobley has been one of the best rookies this season and is my early pick for Rookie of the Year. He is averaging 8.2 rebounds per game. Minnesota isn’t a good rebounding team, ranking 26th in rebounding rate and are last in opponent rebounds per game (57.3). Mobley has at least 9 rebounds in 6 of the last 9 games.

Jarrett Allen Over 16.5 Points (-105 on BetMGM)

Allen has elevated his game and helped the Cavaliers become a good team. Allen has scored at least 17 points in 8 of the last 9 games. He scored 13 points on Wednesday, taking only 9 shots from the field, but gets a great matchup against Minnesota, which allows the 4th-most points to centers.

Tyrese Haliburton Over 5.5 Assists (-139 on BetMGM)

Haliburton has played at least 37 minutes in 3 straight games. He has gone over this total in 6 of the last 8 games and has 11 assists in 2 of the last 3 games. Both teams are top 10 in pace, the game total is 231.5 points and the Hornets are last in defensive efficiency and missing several players due to health and safety protocols. The Hornets allow 26.3 assists per game, which is last in the NBA.
