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. Six games have a spread of 4 points or fewer. Only 4 games have a total of at least 222 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 17-13 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight.

Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors (-6)

The Warriors are 16-2 and dominating. They are 10-1 at home and won 5 consecutive games, including 4 by double-digits. They have won their last 8 home games by at least 13 points. The Warriors are 21-5-1 ATS in their last 27 games and 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 home games as a favorite. Portland is a different team on the road. The Trail Blazers are 9-1 at home and 1-8 on the road and 1-8 ATS and average 11 points per game fewer on the road. The Warriors are first in defensive efficiency and Portland is 29th. Portland is 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games.

Washington Wizards at Oklahoma City Thunder (+8)

The Thunder aren’t a good team at 6-12 and in a rebuild, but they have been competitive in a lot of games. They are also one of the best teams ATS at 12-6. The Thunder lost to the Jazz at home on Wednesday by only 6 points and had a 7-point road loss to the Bucks and a 6-point loss to the Celtics. The Thunder are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a home underdog. They get a Washington team at home that is struggling after a strong start. The Wizards are coming off a 127-102 loss to the Pelicans, who are one of the worst teams in the NBA. The Wizards have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are 1-4 ATS in those games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. This is too many points to spot them.

RJ Barrett Under 15.5 Points (-125 on BetMGM)

Barrett is averaging 14.8 points per game and has been struggling. He has gone under this total in 8 of the last 9 games. He is shooting 34.9 percent from the field in November. Barrett has seen his minutes decrease, playing 30 minutes or fewer in 5 of the last 7 games. The Suns are fourth in defensive efficiency.

Bobby Portis Over 22.5 Points+Rebounds (-110 on DraftKings)

Portis has been on a roll, especially as a starter. He had 28 points and 10 rebounds on Wednesday against the Pistons. Even in a blowout on Monday in which Portis played 23 minutes, he had 13 points and 11 rebounds to go over this total. Portis has gone over this total in 5 of the last 7 games and 7 of the last 10 games. As a starter, he is averaging 18.1 points and 9.6 rebounds. He is shooting 17-for-25 from three-point range is his last 4 games.
