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 11 games on the schedule Friday night in the NBA. Three games have a spread of at least 5 points or more and the rest are 4.5 points or fewer. Five games have a total of 222 points or higher. As always, stay up 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. The plays on Monday went 2-1 and are 12-4 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight.

Brooklyn Nets (-8.5) at New Orleans Pelicans

The Nets are playing well and the Pelicans are the worst team in the NBA at 1-11. Zion Williamson has yet to play and Brandon Ingram has missed 6 straight games with a hip injury. He is listed as questionable. The Nets have won 6 of their last 7 games and the Pelicans have lost eight straight. The Nets are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games against a team with a losing record. The Pelicans are 0-5 ATS in their last five games. The Nets are 4th in defensive efficiency and the Pelicans are last. The Pelicans have lost 4 of their last 5 games by double-digits. The Nets have scored at least 115 points in 4 of their last 5 games. The Pelicans are losing by an average of 12 points per game and Brooklyn has won its last 4 games by an average of 17 points.

Grayson Allen Over 13.5 Points (-110 on DraftKings)

Allen has been a big part of the Bucks offense. He is averaging 15.4 points per game and has been sizzling from three-point range. He has scored at least 15 points in 5 of the last 6 games. He has hit 26 of his last 53 three-point shots.

DeMar DeRozan Under 5.5 Assists (-128 on BetMGM)

DeRozan is off to a great start with the Bulls, but this number is high. He is averaging 3.8 assists per game and has gone under this total in 8 of 11 games. The Warriors allow 21.6 assists per game, which is the 8th fewest in the NBA. The Warriors rank No. 1 in defensive efficiency and the Bulls are 7th. The points could be difficult to come by tonight.

Will Barton Over 24.5 Points+Rebounds+Assists (-118 on BetMGM)

Barton has become a bigger part of the offense with Michael Porter Jr. out. Barton had 30 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists on Wednesday without Nikola Jokic. Barton had 36, 28 and 36 points+rebounds+assists in the three previous games and has played at least 34 minutes in the last 4 games. He has scored at least 25 points in 3 of the last 4 games. Atlanta ranks 28th in defensive efficiency.
