Cleveland Cavaliers @ New York Knicks picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Cleveland Cavaliers
New York Knicks
NY Knicks Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

New York is a mess. They were actually home favorites against Charlotte and lost. It was by just a point, but a lesson that this team is going to be very hard to figure out this season. The bright spot was R.J. Barrett. He matched his season-high with 22 points and they need him to play with confidence for anything to improve. It would also help if they were getting more from the PG platoon of Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr., and I am not sure any team is worse at that spot.  The Cavs are probably the better team but that is definitely a relative term in this matchup. They have lost three in a row and played yesterday at home, losing to Philly. The  76ers are a big team so they might be beat up a little too. There are not a lot of spots where I like the Cavs team and this is definitely not one of them. Take New York.

Over Under Pick

I am looking for this one to be played with a slow tempo. The Cavs have quickness in the backcourt but heavy legs upfront and will have to be mindful of that. If “Sexland” is running they are going to be doing so alone. New York is not efficient on offense and that is not going to change. Take the under here.

Indiana Pacers @ Brooklyn Nets picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Indiana Pacers
Brooklyn Nets
BKN Nets Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Pacers have stalled lately, losing back to back games against Houston and Milwaukee. Worst of all, Malcolm Brogdon is suffering from a back injury and those things tend to linger. Myles Turner is back though and he looked good next to Damontas Sabonis in the starting lineup – they both had double-doubles. Scoring is at a premium though with Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb questionable for this one. No bench player scored more than 7 in the loss to the Bucks either. The Nets just snapped a losing streak at Chicago. Kyrie Irving did not play and he is questionable for this one. Despite the fact that adjusting has proven difficult, the Nets are not better without him. It puts more on Spencer Dinwiddie who is the Nets’ answer to a healthy Brogdon. These teams matchup well with each other. Brooklyn has enough size inside to try and corral the Pacers’ big men. Roll with the home team unless Brogdon is ready to go.

Over Under Pick

I don’t expect either team to be running up the tempo too much. Indiana is comfortable playing that way and Dinwiddie is not in as much of a hurry as Irving. Plus, both teams are going to look to involve their bigs which should slow things down a little too. Take the under here.

Charlotte Hornets @ Toronto Raptors picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Charlotte Hornets
Toronto Raptors
TOR Raptors -9 Point Spread
Over 215.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

Charlotte has held their own on the road this season, going 3-3. Best of all, that number jumps to 5-1 ATS. They have won back to back games as Devonte’ Graham takes the early lead in the Most Improved Player race. Overall I am not a fan of this team though. They might be better than expected but also have just been better than some of the *really* bad teams. Taking down the champs in their first game back home in a while will be tough. Toronto just completed a 3-2 road trip. They were in every game but looked winded as they are playing without two key rotation pieces in Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. Another piece, OG Anunoby, missed close to two games with an eye injury but he returned and looked alright in the loss to Dallas. Toronto is 4-0 at home this season and they should be able to run that to 5-0. They are 3-1 ATS and should be adding to that too. Take the Raptors.

Over Under Pick

Toronto plays solid defense and they are committed to it, it helped win the title in June. They are struggling on the board though and that creates extra opportunities. Three of four have gone over at Scotiabank Arena and this is another record I expect to be added to. Take the over, a little home cooking gets the team back on track.

Mon, Nov 18th - 8:00pm ET:
Milwaukee Bucks @ Chicago Bulls picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Milwaukee Bucks
Chicago Bulls
MIL Bucks -7 Point Spread
Over 230 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

These teams just faced off a couple of games ago in Milwaukee and the Bucks came out ahead 124-115. Only winning that game by nine actually gives us a good number in this one. These two teams are pretty similar on defense, the one place there is a big difference is on offense. The Bucks are averaging 118 points per game while the Bulls are averaging only 107. The Bulls’ last game was a loss against a banged up Nets team. Even at home their offense isn’t going to be enough in this game. Back the Bucks to win.

Over Under Pick

In two of their last three games the Bucks have scored more than 120 points and in this game they be able to get well over that number. At a minimum, the Bucks should be able to get up to the 124 points they scored the last time against the Bulls. The over is 4-1 in the Bulls’ last 5 home games, and 5-1 in the Bucks’ last 6 vs. NBA Central. This will be an up and down game with very little defense being played. Back the over to cash in this game.

Mon, Nov 18th - 8:00pm ET:
Portland Trailblazers @ Houston Rockets picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Portland Trailblazers
Houston Rockets
HOU Rockets -6.5 Point Spread
Over 231.5 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

There were some high expectations coming into this season for the Portland Trail Blazers but at this point it looks like making the playoffs could be an uphill climb. Coming into this game they have lost six of their last eight, and in five of those six losses they failed to cover the spread. For the Rockets, they have won seven games in a row and covered the spread in six of those. Clint Capela is questionable for this game, but it’s not going to matter. The home team is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings played between the two teams. The Rockets win this game by at least ten points and cover the spread.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I don’t love because the Rockets’ pace has been inconsistent this year. On the season the Rockets are averaging 118 points per game and against a bad defense there is no reason they can’t get much higher than that number. The over is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings in Houston between these two teams. This is a lean at best, but back the over if you bet it.

Mon, Nov 18th - 8:30pm ET:
San Antonio Spurs @ Dallas Mavericks picks, expert predictions & betting tips

San Antonio Spurs
Dallas Mavericks
SA Spurs +4.5 Point Spread
Over 226 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The San Antonio Spurs are not off to a good start this season, but this is a rivalry game and I think they should be able to get up for it. The Mavericks are 7-5 on the season but at home they only have a 3-3 record and are 1-5 against the spread. No matter how good or bad these two teams are in a season, this rivalry always seems to be super competitive. The underdog is 24-5 against the spread in the last 29 meetings between these two teams. Back the Spurs to cover the spread in this game.

Over Under Pick

These are two teams who are good at scoring, and don’t play a whole lot of defense. These two teams are both averaging 112 points per game and combined they are giving up 225 points per game. Over their last five games the Spurs’ defense has been even worse, giving up 121.8 points per game. The over is 8-3 in the Mavericks’ last 11 games and there should be no shortage of points scored in this one. Back the over to cash with ease on Monday night.

Mon, Nov 18th - 9:00pm ET:
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Utah Jazz picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Minnesota Timberwolves
Utah Jazz
MIN Timberwolves +10 Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

An in-form Andrew Wiggins has missed the last two games for the Minnesota Timberwolves and is reportedly doubtful for this one against the Utah Jazz due to illness. The good news for the visitors is that Jake Layman made his first start of the season against Houston this past weekend and dropped a season-high 21 points. Utah had its four-game winning streak snapped by an unspectacular Memphis squad. Minnesota is 7-2 ATS in its last nine on the road and 9-4 ATS in its last 13 trips to Utah. The Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven playing on two days of rest. It is also worth noting that the road team is 19-8 ATS in the last 27 head-to-head matchups. Roll with the TIMBERWOLVES.

Over Under Pick

Utah is the No. 1 scoring defense in the entire NBA and it is second-to-last in the Western Conference in scoring. Wiggins also may have cooled off a bit with his recent absence. The under is 8-1 in the Timberwolves’ last nine on the road against opponents with winning home records. It is also 12-3 in the Jazz’s last 15 overall, 6-2 in their last eight at home, and 22-7 in their last 29 against the Western Conference. Additionally, the under is 5-2 in Minnesota’s last seven at Utah. Take the UNDER.

Boston Celtics @ Phoenix Suns picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Boston Celtics
Phoenix Suns
BOS Celtics Money Line
Over 227 Game Totals

Money Line Pick

The Boston Celtics will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation when they visit the Phoenix Suns on Monday. Although Boston lost at Sacramento 100-99 on Sunday, it remains the best team in the NBA at 10-2 (tied with the Lakers as of Sunday afternoon). The Phoenix Suns may be a bit rusty having not played since Thursday. They have not defeated a team with a winning record since Nov. 5. I just don’t see Boston losing two in a row after previously dropping only one game all season. The Celtics are 6-2-2 ATS in their last 10 overall, 3-1-1 ATS in their last five on the road, and 4-0 ATS in their last four against opponents with winning records. Phoenix is 2-5 ATS in its last seven against opponents with winning percentages over .600 and 2-11 ATS in its last 13 playing on at least three days of rest. It is also worth noting that the underdog is 7-0 ATS in the last seven meetings between the two teams. Take the money line on BOSTON; don’t even bother with the points.

Over Under Pick

A whopping seven different Suns players are scoring in double-figures per game, with Devin Booker leading the way at 25.5 ppg. Boston may be playing on some tired legs, but the good news for the visitors is that Phoenix is giving up more than 110 ppg. The over is 5-2 in the Celtics’ last seven against opponents with winning records. It is also 5-0 in the Suns’ last five overall, 5-0 in their last five at home, and 6-0 in their last six against the Eastern Conference. Look for this one to go OVER the total.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Los Angeles Clippers picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Oklahoma City Thunder
Los Angeles Clippers
LA Clippers -8.5 Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

Kawhi Leonard (knee) and Patrick Beverley (calf) are questionable for the Los Angeles Clippers’ contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. In other words, proceed with caution when it comes to making this bet. The confirmed good news for L.A. is that Paul George is back, and he has been stellar through two outings with his new team. George is averaging 35.0 ppg despite having played less than 25 minutes on each occasion. The Thunder are 0-4 straight up on the road this season. Oklahoma City is 2-5 ATS in its last seven against the Pacific Division and 2-5 ATS in its last seven at Los Angeles. The Clippers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall and 6-0 ATS in their last six at home. It is also worth noting that the home team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head-to-head matchups. Lean toward LOS ANGELES.

Over Under Pick

George is on a minutes restriction and Leonard may be either less than 100 percent or out altogether. Oklahoma City is the fourth-best scoring defense in the Western Conference. The under is 5-1 in the Thunder’s last six against the Pacific Division. It is also 7-3 in the Clippers’ last 10 overall, 6-2 in their last eight at home, and 5-1 in their last six against the Western Conference. Additionally, the under is 8-2 in OKC’s last 10 at L.A. Look for this one to stay UNDER the total.

Latest NBA News

Other Sports News

The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to actually acknowledge that there games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league. This can only be considered as a good thing for NBA betting and professional basketball bettors. Much like hockey, there are no shortage of NBA predictions on every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

What Free NBA Expert Picks Do You Offer At Pickswise?

There are 2,460 games to bet on during the season and our expert NBA predictions provide betting angles into every game. If you’re looking for the best NBA bets today we have you covered. Our NBA experts share their best free NBA predictions each and every.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?

We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day.  The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyse every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily.  Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedule and referees and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.

Free NBA Predictions Moneyline

The moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not farfetched for the Warriors moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread

When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.

NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or less points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause the upset and win the game outright.

Free NBA Picks Over Under

NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA you might see a 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.

Expert NBA Parlays And Teaser NBA Predictions

NBA teasers are one of the few sports where these types of bets are utilized besides pro and college football. The most common points available in NBA teasers are 4, 4.5, and 5 with some books offering 7 points. You can apply these points on anywhere from 2 to 14 games with each bet you add the payout odds increasing. Of course in order for an NBA teaser to be graded a win, each team on the ticket must be graded a win. NBA parlays work in very much the same manner with between 2 and 10 teams being added to a ticket. You don’t get the 4, 4.5, or 5 points in NBA parlays but the payout odds are better

NBA Playoff Predictions

In addition to free daily NBA predictions, we also provide insight into NBA postseason betting. From best of seven quarterfinals matchups to the NBA Championship Finals, there’s nothing quite like the excitement of game seven in the series. In the NBA postseason home court becomes an even bigger advantage but it’s important to make sure the lines reflect that. Our experts analyse every playoff game and give you their expert NBA predictions to help you make the best selections in April and finish off the season in profit.
