We have a lot of NBA action to take on Monday night, as the sweet NCAA and Tournament of 16 will have to wait a few days.
I may have enjoyed it here, but I needed a bit of NBA basketball back in my life after seeing some ugly shooting performances and pretty low quality basketball during the NCAA Tournament this past weekend. . Sure, it makes for fun games, but let’s not act like it’s basketball in its purest form.
That being said, I’m ready for some attacking action tonight with two assists and totals to focus on for Monday’s games.
Let’s start the selection of today!
Find Peter Dewey’s entire NBA betting record this season this.
Kevin Durant OVER 30.5 points (-110)
Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has erased this boundary in his four games since returning from injury, but they have been accompanied by monster performances, as he averages 30, 0 points per game during that period.
What’s more impressive is that Durant made it much bigger scoring role at home when Kyrie Irving was out of action, scoring 31, 53, 23 and 38 points in those four games.
Tonight he meets the Utah Jazz team on their second head-to-head night, and I think Durant (who proved the match) can take advantage of some weary legs on the other side.
New Orleans Pelicans vs. Charlotte Hornets: OVER 233.5 (-110)
The New Orleans Pelicans have struggled without Brandon Ingram this season, 5-16 in a row, but they won last night against Atlanta.
This could be more difficult against the Charlotte Hornets that have beaten the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks in their last two games, as Charlotte is looking upset late in the game. The Hornets have ranked 2nd offensively in the league for the last 10 games, but they’re 21st in defensive ratings during that period.
As for the Pelicans, they’re 8th and 10th in those respective categories, and I think we’ll have plenty of points in this game. The last game between these teams saw a total of 262 points, and the Hornets have picked up 234 points in seven of their last 10 games.
This the game can be a track encounter with the way Charlotte likes to speed things up, so I’ll continue with Pels head-to-head.
Cade Cunningham OVER 24.5 points (+100)
We’re going to be heavily supporting tonight, although I’d prefer the Detroit Pistons in a tie if there’s another team you feel strong about, because Portland Trail Blazers are a mess right The current.
The Pistons are 16th in offensive rating and 12th in defensive rating in their last 10 games, while the Blazers are dead at last in the NBA in both categories during the same time period.
Cunningham has scored 24.5 points in just three of his last 10 games, but he faces a team that has just lost 30 points to the Indiana Pacers and is arguably the worst defensively in the NBA. Cunningham’s points, rebounds, assists are a bit too high for me, so I’d like him to be worth +100 to beat this number.
