Charlotte 113 @ Toronto 125 | 01/26 | 12:00 AM UTC

Charlotte 115

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Raptors are 0-3 without Fred VanVleet in their starting lineup, and two of those defeats came at home. While the Hornets are 0-2 without Gordon Hayward, Toronto's lack of a legitimate reserve point guard favors LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier. I expect Charlotte to play inspired ball after suffering an abysmal home loss to the Hawks over the weekend.

+475 22-16 IN LAST 38 NBA PICKS

Indiana 113 @ New Orleans 117 | 01/25 | 1:00 AM UTC

New Orleans -145

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Pelicans have quietly won seven of their previous 10 home games and will host a Pelicans team that won't have Malcolm Brogdon or Domantas Sabonis on Monday. Caris LeVert will be a game-time decision and could make this game close if he suits up, so I'm sticking with New Orleans on the moneyline. Jonas Valaniunas should dominate the post with no Sabonis or Myles Turner (foot) available, and the Pacers are 2-6 straight up this year when Brogdon and LeVert don't play.

Chicago 111 @ Oklahoma City 110 | 01/25 | 1:00 AM UTC

Chicago -1.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Oddsmakers are low on the Bulls after their embarrassing loss to the Magic over the weekend, but they're well equipped to bounce back against the Thunder on Monday. Zach LaVine (knee) has a chance to return to Chicago's starting lineup, and I think the visiting team can win without his help. The Bulls are 7-5 ATS as road favorites but 9-3 straight up as road favorites. I'll bank on this matchup being decided by two points or more.

Portland 92 @ Miami 104 | 01/20 | 12:30 AM UTC

Portland +9.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Portland has won two straight road games and will visit a Miami team that won't have Tyler Herro (health and safety protocols) or Kyle Lowry (personal). While the Heat have played well when missing key players this year, they're 2-4 ATS when favored by eight or more points. Both their wins came against the Orlando Magic. CJ McCollum should help the Trail Blazers avoid a double-digit loss in his second game back from a long layoff.

Minnesota 122 @ Atlanta 134 | 01/20 | 12:30 AM UTC

Minnesota 105

LOSS

ANALYSIS: I can't pass up on this juicy underdog. While Atlanta did pull off a surprising home win against Milwaukee at home in its last game, it's lost nine of its last 10 home games. I don't care if this matchup is a back-to-back for Minnesota. Karl-Anthony Towns should dominate the Hawks' Clint Capela-less interior and boasts career averages of 25.5 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 3.7 assists over 11 meetings against them.
