We are back on track with an 8-2 record over Thursday and Friday last week.

I hope that momentum can carry over to this week.

Washington Wizards @ Toronto Raptors

The Wizards are cooling off after a hot start and Bradley Beal is in a huge slump. 

Toronto is just one-point favourites on Sportsbet and I think they can win this by more, so the Raptors -1 at $1.93 on Sportsbet works for me.

Before last game, Daniel Gafford had scored in double digits in three straight. 

His points prop is 9.5, paying $2.03 for over on Sportsbet. He should be able to do that against a Raptors team with no interior threat. 

On the other side Precious Achiuwa, while inefficient, should be able to also hit over 9.5 points. That’s priced at $1.88 on Sportsbet

Best bet: Handicap betting - Raptors -1

Best bet: Player points - Gafford over 9.5

Best bet: Player points - Achiuwa over 9.5

Charlotte Hornets @ Atlanta Hawks

The Hornets are undermanned, but it’s mainly in the backcourt. 

Gordon Hayward’s rebound number looks high. 

On TAB, it’s set at 6.5. The under is paying $1.60 and he has had seven or more boards just three times this season.

Best bet: Player rebounds - Hayward under 6.5

New Orleans Pelicans @ Houston Rockets

The Rockets have been on fire, largely due to Christian Wood. 

He has grabbed at least 14 rebounds in his last three games (not ended by injury), but his rebound number is set at only 10.5. 

On Sportsbet, the over is paying $1.91.

Best bet: Player rebounds - Wood over 10.5
