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 Monday night schedule in the NBA. Three games have a spread of 4 or fewer points. Only 2 games have a total of at least 222 points. As always, stay up date on the latest injury news since lines can change. Bets may be added throughout the day, so be sure to check back later in the day. My record is 20-14 for the season. Here are my picks for tonight!

Cleveland Cavaliers (+7) at Dallas Mavericks

The Cavaliers have been one of the best teams at covering this season, going 13-7 against the spread, and they have a 10-10 record despite injuries. The Mavericks are 8-10 ATS, including 3-5 at home. The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games as an underdog and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 as an underdog. The Mavericks are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games. The Cavaliers snapped a 5-game losing streak with a 105-92 win over the Magic on Saturday as rookie Evan Mobley returned after missing 4 games with a sprained elbow. The Mavericks have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The Cavaliers are 9th in defensive efficiency. Take Cleveland with the points.

New Orleans Pelicans (+7) at Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers are a difficult team to trust. They have lost 4 of their last 6 games and are struggling offensively. The Clippers are 25th in offensive efficiency and have failed to score 110 points in 8 straight games despite playing an easy schedule. The Clippers lost to the Pelicans, 94-81, on November 20 and blew a 20-point first-half lead. The Pelicans are one of the worst teams in the NBA, but have played better lately, especially with Brandon Ingram healthy. The Pelicans have won 2 of the last 3 with a 25-point win against the Wizards and 1-point road win in Utah. The Clippers are 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games and they are worth fading again.

Jarrett Allen over 13.5 points (-115 on DraftKings)

Cleveland’s Jarrett Allen is having a great season, averaging 15.5 points per game. Allen scored 19 points on Saturday with Mobley back from an elbow injury. Allen has gone over this total in 7 of the last 10 games, reaching at least 20 points 4 times. The Mavericks struggle to defend centers. Dallas allows 47.2 points per game in the paint, which ranks 23rd in the NBA and allow the 3rd-most points per game to centers.
