After a six-game Sunday slate, the League is back for another jam-packed Monday as 18 teams will be on the court. Let’s take a closer look at the board and see where the value remains.
Leg #1. Warriors -3.5 | -110 at DK Sportsbook
After failing to get there in the Warriors’ loss in Philadelphia against brother Seth, Steph Curry will go for the all-time three-point record tonight in Indiana as he sits now just six short. Coming into this one winner of just three of their last six, this is as close to a cold streak the Warriors have been on all season.
For the Pacers, a three-game win streak comes into tonight with them, as their most recent win was three days ago at home vs. Dallas, 106-93. In this one, however, I like for Curry to get his record en route to the Warriors taking advantage of a far less talented opponent.
Leg #2. 76ers -3 | -115 at DK Sportsbook
The importance of Joel Embiid to the 76ers has been on display more than ever as of late as his return has sparked the team, who comes into this one winner of four of their last five. Most recently. Embiid dropped 26 in the 76ers 102-93 win over the Warriors on Saturday.
For the Grizzlies, life without Ja Morant continues to be just fine, as the team is now 7-1 without him. That run, however, has included games against some of the worst (and most injured) teams in the league, including the Thunder, Rockets, and Heat.
Look for the 76ers to largely have their way tonight en route to a win.
Leg #3. Mavericks -2.5 | -110 at DK Sportsbook
COVID protocols have rocked this Hornets team who has been without most of their most critical players as the virus goes through the team. Most recently, in Friday’s 1-point win vs. the Kings, PJ Washington and Nick Richards sat out with the illness as well.
Even still, their last five have been decided five points or less, as the Hornets have won two of five. In this one, however, they get a Mavs team who likey gets back Sterling Brown and is largely healthy outside of Luka Doncic.
I expect the absences to finally catch up with this Hornets team and for them to lose this one both straight up and ATS.
