NBA | Miami 101 @ Minnesota 105 | 11/22 | 1:00 AM UTC

Minnesota -8.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Heat have lost a bunch of their players to injury for this game, with the most important being Jimmy Butler. Miami can’t keep up without Butler’s grit. The Heat have lost their last three, including yesterday’s 113-87 blowout at Cleveland. They're not rested. The Timberwolves return home after winning three of their last four on a road trip. It’s their longest win streak of the season. Maybe the T'Wolves have finally figured things out. I’m on Minnesota to cover.

+80 3-2 IN LAST 5 MIN ATS PICKS

NBA | Detroit 129 @ Sacramento 137 | 11/20 | 11:00 PM UTC

Sacramento -10

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Kings are riding a five-game winning streak and have covered in 11 of their last 13 contests, including each of the last six. Malik Monk (mouth) is questionable and Sacramento doesn't play much defense, allowing 50% shooting by its opponents. But the Kings get so many high-percentage shots that they just outscore and outwill other teams. The Pistons have lost six straight and Cade Cunningham (shin) is still out. Take the Kings to cover.

+261 8-5-1 IN LAST 14 DET ATS PICKS
+261 7-4-1 IN LAST 12 SAC ATS PICKS

NBA | Charlotte 102 @ Washington 106 | 11/20 | 11:00 PM UTC

Washington -5.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Hornets have lost back-to-back contests after winning at Orlando on Monday to end an eight-game slide. Gordon Hayward is back, but LaMelo Ball (ankle) is out again. The Wizards have won five of their last six contests, a stretch that began with a 108-100 victory at Charlotte. Take Washington to cover.

+60 5-4-1 IN LAST 10 CHA ATS PICKS

CBB | St. Peter's 58 @ St. Fran.-NY 61 | 11/19 | 7:00 PM UTC

OVER 131.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Saint Peter’s lost four starters from last season's Cinderella team and also lost a coach for their success, and the Peacocks brought in former Wagner coach Bashir Mason. So far so good, with two wins and then one bad loss at Seton Hall. But in the two games they won, they went fast and got each over the total. Ideally, I think playing up-tempo is what they want to do, and this total is way too low. I’m on the Over.

+90 2-1 IN LAST 3 STPETE O/U PICKS

NBA | Utah 118 @ Portland 113 | 11/20 | 3:00 AM UTC

Portland -4

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Portland plays the last of a three-game homestand, then hits the road for four games. The Blazers just finished a six-game road trip last week. They’re healthy for the most part and last played Thursday night. The Jazz played Phoenix on Friday night, winning 134-133 to end a three-game losing streak. I’m on the Blazers to cover.
