A scoreless half from Isaiah Stewart and missing by one assist from Desmond Bane made yesterday a miserable day, but there are nine more games today to look into, so let’s get to it.

Orlando Magic @ Philadelphia 76ers

Without Cole Anthony, I can’t see how the Magic keep it close against a rampaging Joel Embiid. 

We have seen a lot of 15 point plus blowouts this season and this could be another one.

With Embiid back, and maybe lower minutes in a blowout, I think I lean toward the under on Tyrese Maxey’s points, which is set at 17.5. The under is paying $1.85 on TAB

Best bet handicap - 76ers -13.5

Best bet player points - Maxey under 17.5

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Dallas Mavericks

It’s great to have Evan Mobley back and I think he can do a bit of damage in his second game after his elbow injury. 

His points/rebounds/assists total is set at 23.5 on TAB for $.187, and I think he can hit over that, maybe even just with points and rebounds.

Best bet player points/rebounds/assists - Mobley over 23.5

Washington Wizards @ San Antonio Spurs

I want to look at Derrick White’s assist numbers here. It is interesting. On Sportsbet, the line is 4.5, but it is just 3.5 on TAB.

The odds are boosted to go over on Sportsbet and I do think he boots five helpers in this one, but I’ll play it safe and take over 3.5 assists (he is averaging 4.6 the last month) on TAB for $1.68. 

I also think the under is in play for this contest. It is set at 214.5 and I will take that

Best bet game total - under 214.5

Best bet player assists - White over 3.5
