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 10 games on the schedule Monday night in the NBA. Four games have a spread of 4 points or fewer and 4 games have double-digit spreads. Only 3 games have a total of at least 221 points. 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. After a bad Friday night, the record is 15-12 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight.

Brooklyn Nets at Cleveland Cavaliers (+6)

The Nets are 10-2 in their last 12 games and won their last game without Kevin Durant, who sat out with a shoulder injury and he will play tonight. Bruce Brown and Joe Harris will be out for the Nets. The Cavaliers started well, but have been hit hard by injuries and lost 4 of their last 6. Collin Sexton is out for the season and Evan Mobley is out with an elbow injury. Jarrett Allen will return tonight against his former team after missing 3 games due to illness and the Nets have no one to slow him down. Lauri Markkanen could also be back for Cleveland after missing 9 games due to health and safety protocols. The Nets are only 8-9 ATS, while Cleveland is 10-7 ATS. The Cavaliers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog.

Phoenix Suns (-5) at San Antonio Spurs

The Suns have won 12 consecutive games following a 1-3 start. Nine of the wins have been by at least 7 points. The Suns played last night at home, but the lone starter to play more than 30 minutes was Mikal Bridges. The Suns are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. The Spurs have lost 4 consecutive games by 14, 8, 14 and 25 points. The Spurs are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The Spurs are 4-11 and have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

Jonas Valanciunas Over 30.5 Points+Rebounds (-125 on FanDuel Sportsbook)

Valanciunas is averaging 19.4 points and 12.9 rebounds and has produced some big games. He had 19 points and 13 rebounds in only 23 minutes in his last game. The matchup is as good as it gets against Minnesota as Karl-Anthony Towns isn’t a good defender. Valanciunas has played Minnesota twice this season and had 20 points and 17 rebounds on Oct. 23 and 22 points and 23 rebounds on Oct. 25. Valanciunas has gone over this total in 6 of the last 9 games.
