MIN -5 @ CHA O/U 227.5
Minnesota has been playing much better lately, currently on a 5 game SU winning streak. Charlotte is still a little banged up. No LaMelo Ball or Gordon Hayward again for this 1. Charlotte has only won 5 of their 19 games played this season. Ride the team on a hot streak. Minnesota -5!
ATL -8 @ HOU O/U 232
Atlanta swept the season series last season, winning both games by double figures. The Hawks also were double digit favorites in those games. Here's where this gets tricky Atlanta pushed & covered a 10 point spread & a 12 point spread last season. The Hawks are a much improved team this season with the addition of Dejounte Murray. Houston only has 3 wins on the season, yet they are single digit home dogs in this 1. Take the points. Houston +8!
POR +3 @ NYK O/U 218.5
These teams have split their 2 meetings over the last 3 seasons with the home team defending their home floor each time. The Knicks have covered the last 3 meetings in Madison Square vs Portland. The Blazers will still be without Dame Dollar. Take New York -3!
