Washington Wizards (+200)
The Washington Wizards have struggled early this season, ranking 25th in the NBA in net offensive and defensive rating (-4.6). They have been playing at a higher level recently, though, winning three of their last four games. Over that span, they own wins against the Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans, and Toronto Raptors. Washington was able to beat New Orleans by 10 points, and they will now see a road matchup against them tonight. On the season, the Pelicans rank 14th in the NBA in net off and def rating (0.4). They have been struggling recently, losing each of their last four games. With that being said, the Pelicans have been a significantly better team at home this season. Still, Washington enters this game as the hotter team and gets a six point buffer.

Cleveland Cavaliers (+735)/Oklahoma City Thunder (-1070)
This game seems a lot like the Minnesota Wolves and Cleveland Cavaliers game that we just won betting the under. The Oklahoma City Thunder currently rank eighth in the NBA in pace, while Cleveland ranks 28th in the same category. Cleveland also ranks last in the league in defensive rating, while Oklahoma City also ranks below average in terms of offensive rating. Furthermore, Cleveland has struggled offensively, while Oklahoma City leads the league in defensive rating. This will likely be a case where the Thunder continue to struggle on offense, while the Cavs struggle to score against an elite defense. This over seems entirely too high for two teams combining to average 215.5 points per game. If it drops a bit, I avoid, but that this point, I feel it’s a couple points too high.
Bet 3 units on Cleveland/Oklahoma City UNDER 217 to win 2.7 units (-110)
Milwaukee Bucks (N/A)
This game is extremely simple. The Milwaukee Bucks have been the best team in the NBA, while the Chicago Bulls have been the worst team in the league. In 2018, Milwaukee owns a 10.5 net off and def rating, while Chicago possesses a -9.2 net off and def rating. The spread is extremely wide, but the Bucks beat the Bulls by 19 points in their only matchup this season. They have also featured plenty of blowouts in 2018, as they have won five wins by 20 or more points. Furthermore, Chicago will be forced to travel to Milwaukee tonight, and this is a perfect storm for the Bucks to add another massive win to their resume.
Bet 2 units on Milwaukee -14 spread to win 1.8 units (-110)
Parlay 2 units on Atlanta/Charlotte UNDER 232, Portland -8 spread, and Los Angeles Clippers -11.5 spread to win 12.2 units (+612)
