It’s the first weekend of the new NBA season and a total of 14 teams are in action around the association. NBA TV is showing 2 games tonight, and one of them is featured in my NBA mega parlay which you can see below.

Check out our NBA predictions for picks for tonight’s 7-game slate, but let’s not waste any more time and jump straight into it.

Over 217.5 total points in Bulls vs Pistons (-110)

New Orleans Pelicans -3.5 (-108)

Memphis Grizzlies -1.5 (-114)

NBA Parlay odds: +590

Over 217.5 total points in Bulls vs Pistons (-110)

The Bulls and Pistons both played last night, so it’s only natural to assume defense won’t be a priority in tonight’s game. Last season these teams allowed an average of 110.3 and 116.2 points per game when playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Chicago also played an extra period in its game against the Raptors last night, so there could be some tired legs out there. Only 1 of the 4 meetings between the teams was low-scoring, with the other 3 producing 232, 234 and 250 points. By today’s NBA standards scoring 218 points doesn’t sound like a whole lot, so let’s target the over here.

New Orleans Pelicans -3.5 over NY Knicks (-108)

New York is playing on the second night of a back-to-back, while the Pelicans have had a couple of days to rest before this game. C.J. McCollum, Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram are finally playing together for the Pelicans, and they just beat the Grizzlies by 7 points on the road. This will be their season opener at home, so you have to figure they’ll come out firing. Zion will be a matchup problem for the Knicks as they don’t have anyone on their roster who could slow him down. New Orleans is 2-1 SU in the last 3 meetings, so I’ll take the Pels to cover the spread.

Memphis Grizzlies -1.5 over Washington Wizards (-114)

Finally we have the Memphis Grizzlies covering the spread in Washington against one of the worst teams in the league. Memphis needs a win badly after starting the season 0-2. After playing the Pelicans and Nuggets in their first 2 games, this will be a much easier task against a team that was just beaten by 23 points on the road in Indiana. Not having Ja Morant is an issue, but there were flashes from Derrick Rose in last night’s game against Denver and he is capable of filling the void until Ja returns. The Wizards aren’t going anywhere this season. Their best hope of winning games on a nightly basis is if Jordan Poole gets hot from the field, and Marcus Smart should be capable of keeping him under control. Memphis has gone 8-4 ATS in the last 12 meetings and 6-2 SU in the last 8 head-to-head. I’ll take the Grizzlies here.
