  • Featured game: Atlanta Hawks vs. Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets (9-5; 7-7 ATS) are in crisis after the great start on the season as they lost four games in a row, and the previous three defeats came at Pepsi Center including a 109-99 loss to the Houston Rockets last Tuesday. The Nuggets are 4th in the league in points allowed per game (103.9) but they still have a lot to learn defensively. The matchup with the Hawks should be a perfect opportunity to end up the losing streak and continue to improve on both ends of the ball, but the stats are suggesting it wouldn’t be an easy job.

The Nuggets opened as massive 12-point favorites here with the total at 222.0 points and the Hawks at +625 money line odds. The Nuggets are 1-5 straight up and 0-6 ATS in their last six meetings with the Hawks, and they are 0-3 straight up and ATS in the previous three H2H duels at Pepsi Center. On the other hand, the Nuggets are 10-0 straight up and 8-2 ATS in the last ten outings when considered as double-digit favorites.

The Atlanta Hawks (3-11; 6-8 ATS) are on a five-game losing streak, coming off a 110-103 defeat at the Golden State Warriors as 12-point underdogs. They are allowing 117.7 points per game which is the 2nd-worst record in the NBA at the moment, while the Hawks are 1-7 straight up and 4-4 ATS in their eight games on the road this season. Atlanta is 4-16 straight up and 8-11-1 ATS in its last 20 games on the road, 1-6 straight up and 6-1 ATS in its last seven outings as double-digit dogs, and the Hawks are 0-7 straight up and 2-4-1 ATS in their previous seven games on the road against the Western Conference.

  • San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers

The San Antonio Spurs (7-6; 6-7 ATS) suffered a heavy 116-96 loss at the Phoenix Suns last night, and they won only one of their last five games. The Spurs will meet the Clippers without a rest, and San Antonio is 3-5 straight up and ATS in its last eight back-to-back games. The Spurs are 2-4 straight up and ATS in their six road games this season, and they are 3-17 straight up and 6-14 ATS in the previous 20 outings on the road.

The Spurs opened as 5-point underdogs on this one with the total at 219.5 points and the Clippers at -225 money line odds. San Antonio is 5-5 straight up and ATS in the last ten meetings with the Clippers, and the Spurs are 3-6 straight up and 4-5 ATS in the previous nine H2H meetings at Staples Center. The Clippers won the only last season’s duel in LA 113-110 to cover the 2.5-point spread.

The Los Angeles Clippers (8-5; 8-5 ATS) have won two straight games in the overtime, beating the Golden State Warriors 121-116 and the Milwaukee Bucks 128-126 at home, while the Clippers have won four of their last five games. They are 6-0 straight up and ATS in the last six games at Staples Center, while the over is 4-2 during that span. Also, the Clippers are 5-2 straight up and ATS in their last seven games at home when listed as favorites.

  • Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets

This will be the first H2H duel on the season between the Warriors and the Rockets, and the Western Conference vice-champions are listed as 2-point favorites on this one with the total at 220.0 points, while the defending NBA champions are at +115 money line odds. The Rockets are 5-8 straight up and 5-7-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings with the Warriors, and they are 3-6 straight up and ATS in the previous nine H2H meetings at Toyota Center.

After a slow start, the Houston Rockets (6-7; 5-8 ATS) are slowly building up their form, and they’ve won two games in a row against the Indiana Pacers 115-103 and the Denver Nuggets 109-99. The Rockets are 1-4 straight up and ATS in five home games this term, and they are 12-8 straight up and 8-12 ATS in the previous 20 outings at home. On the other side, the Warriors are 4-2 straight up and 2-4 ATS in their six outings on the road this season, while they are 12-8 straight up and 10-10 ATS in the previous 20 games on the road. Golden State still misses injured Stephen Curry who will be sidelined for at least a week.

  • Featured game: Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics

After being the best team in the league against the spread last year, the Boston Celtics (7-6; 4-9 ATS) are torturing their backers in this term. The Celtics have lost four of their last five games winning only at the Phoenix Suns in the overtime. However, they will be massive 12-point favorites against the Chicago Bulls (4-10; 8-6-0 ATS) whose ATS backers can be pleased with their start on the season. Chicago has won two of its last five games including a 116-115 overtime win at New York. The line on the total has been set at 210.5 points with the Bulls as +660 money line underdogs.

  • Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Washington Wizards

The Cavaliers (2-11; 7-6 ATS) are coming off the last night’s 113-89 home victory over the Charlotte Hornets to end up their five-game losing streak. The Cavs opened as huge 12-point underdogs on this one with the total at 220.0 points and +650 money line odds on them. The Washington Wizards (4-9; 4-9 ATS) have won two games in a row, and after an awful start on the season, they will try to bounce back in further weeks.

The Wizards are 2-3 straight up and ATS in five games at home this season, and they are 9-11 straight up and 9-10-1 ATS in the last 20 outings at home. The Wizards are 3-2 straight up and 1-4 ATS in their previous five outings as double-digit favorites, while the Cavaliers are 0-5 straight up and 3-2 ATS in their last five games when considered as double-digit underdogs. The Cavs are 0-6 straight up and 5-1 ATS in six road games this season, and they are 4-2 straight up and 5-1 ATS in their previous six back-to-back games.

  • San Antonio Spurs vs. Phoenix Suns

After a surprising 104-99 defeat at the Sacramento Kings, the San Antonio Spurs (7-5; 6-6 ATS) will be looking for redemption at Phoenix where they trashed off the Suns 120-90 two weeks ago. The Phoenix Suns (2-11; 5-8 ATS) are on a four-game losing streak as it looks like another painful season on a horizon for their fans. The Suns are 2-5 straight up and 4-3 ATS in seven games at home so far including some ugly losses against San Antonio, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles Lakers. On the other hand, the Suns beat Memphis and Dallas while losing to the Celtics only after overtime 116-109 in their previous outing at home.

The Spurs opened as 5-point favorites here with the total at 211.0 points and Phoenix at +180 money line odds, but they are just 2-14 straight up and 4-12 ATS in the last 16 games on the road. On the other hand, the Spurs won the last seven meetings with the Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena, covering the spread five times in the process. Likewise, the Spurs are 12-3 straight up and 10-5 ATS in the previous 15 H2H duels at Phoenix, and they are 14-1 straight up and 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 H2H matchups overall.

  • New York Knicks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Russell Westbrook has missed the last four games, but Oklahoma City is doing fine even without its best player, winning three of those four matchups with Russ sidelined with an ankle injury. The Thunder (8-5; 8-5 ATS) has won eight of its last nine games after starting the season with four straight losses, and Billy Donovan’s boys are 7-2 ATS during that span. They won five games in a row at home, failing to cover only as massive 13.5-point favorites against the Phoenix Suns.

The Thunder opened as 8.5-point favorites on this one, while the line on the totals has been set at 215.5 points. The New York Knicks (4-10; 6-6-2 ATS) are +310 money line dogs here, and they are 1-4 straight up and ATS in the last five games overall and 2-5 straight up and 3-3-1 ATS in seven games on the road this season. The Knicks are 3-7 straight up and 4-6 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Thunder, and they are 1-4 straight up and ATS in the previous five duels at Oklahoma City as 8.5-point underdogs on average.

  • New Orleans Pelicans vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves (5-9; 6-8 ATS) won the game immediately after trading Jimmy Butler away, beating the Brooklyn Nets 120-113 at home even with a shortened rotation. Dario Saric and Robert Covington could get their debut against the Pelicans (7-6; 6-7 ATS), but the hosts are still a 1-point underdog here with the total at 230.5 points. However, the Minnesota Timberwolves won all four last season’s H2H matchups with the Pelicans, covering the spread on all four occasions.

Minnesota is struggling this season, especially on the road, but the Timberwolves are 4-1 straight up and ATS in five games at home so far. They are 7-4 straight up and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings with the Pelicans at Target Center and 4-4 straight up and ATS in the previous eight home games as underdogs. On the other side, the New Orleans Pelicans are on a three-game winning streak including a comfortable 126-110 victory at the Toronto Raptors in their previous outing. The Pelicans are 2-5 straight up and 3-4 ATS in seven road games this season, and they are 1-8 straight up and 4-5 ATS in the last nine road games versus the Western Conference.

  • Brooklyn Nets vs. Miami Heat

After Caris LeVert season-ending injury in their previous loss at Minnesota, the Brooklyn Nets (6-8; 7-7 ATS) are coming home to face the Miami Heat (5-8; 5-8 ATS) as 2-point underdogs with the total at 219.0 points and Miami as a -130 money line favorite. The Heat is on a three-game losing streak and their backers are pretty disappointed with a 2-6 straight up and ATS record in the last eight games overall. Miami is 2-3 straight up and ATS in five road games this season and 5-15 straight up and 9-9-2 ATS in its previous 20 road games altogether.

On the other side, the Nets will certainly miss LeVert who had 18.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game in 14 starts this season. Brooklyn is 3-2 straight up and 2-3 ATS in five home games so far, and the Nets are 7-13 straight up and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games at Barclays Center. The Nets are just 1-8 straight up and ATS in their previous nine duels with the Heat at home, and they are 4-11 straight up and ATS in the previous 15 meetings with the Heat at any location, but the Nets have won and covered the last three H2H matchups.

  • Detroit Pistons vs. Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors (12-2; 7-6-1) are coming off a painful 126-110 defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans to end up their six-game winning streak, and they opened as strong 10-point favorites on this one with the total at 224.0 points and Detroit at +425 money line odds. The Pistons (6-6; 5-7 ATS) lost to the Charlotte Hornets 113-103 in their previous outing to record their sixth defeat in the last eight games on the season and third straight on a home court.

The Raptors are 6-0 straight up and 3-2-1 ATS in their last six meetings with the Pistons, and they are 5-1 straight up and 2-4 ATS in the last six H2H matchups at home as 9-point favorites on average. Toronto is 7-1 straight up and 4-4 ATS in eight home games this season, while the Raptors are 7-0 straight up and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games when listed as double-digit favorites. On the other side, the Pistons are 3-3 straight up and 4-2 ATS in six games on the road so far, and they are 2-8 straight up and 4-6 ATS in the previous ten games when listed as double-digit underdogs.
