NBA Spread Picks for MLK Day (January 18th) are here. Let’s make some money!
I want to do a quick disclaimer here. I like to write this article for fun. If you agree with my analysis below, feel free to bet on these below, but I have never been the most successful spreads better. If you are looking the bets to put the house on (maybe not the house, but actual money), check out our favorite NBA Player Props article written and posted everyday of the NBA Season. We are 48-30 on those bets. Thanks! Let’s get into my NBA Spread picks.
Note: I am using the lines set by FanDuel Sportsbook. Also, these are just my thoughts and opinions. I am not responsible for any loss of money, or broken items in rage.
Season Recap: 16-12
3:10 PM: Spurs (-2) at Blazers, O/U: 226.5
If you read my NBA Player Props article (and if you didn’t, link is down below), you already know I am high on Damian Lillard today. He should feast against this Spurs defense and lead his team to victory. The Spurs are a bottom 5 team out West and that’ll show today on the road in Portland.
7:40 PM: Mavericks at Raptors (-5), O/U: 219.5
Pick: Over 219.5
The Raptors and Mavericks both don’t play much defense. This has a feel of a game where each team chucks up 40+ 3 pointers, and I think they will go down. 220 points is not asking for a lot out of both of these potent offenses. Take the over!
7:40 PM: Bucks (-3.5) at Nets, O/U: 238.5
Vegas is expecting a high scoring game and that’s what they are gonna get! Kyrie Irving remains out, but Kevin Durant and James Harden will still be playing. That will be too much firepower for this Bucks team to hang with. If this is a high scoring game, which it projects that way, the Bucks will have a hard time hanging with the Nets. Take Brooklyn with the points.
