A Tyler Herro missed free throw away from splitting yesterday 2-2, but instead we went 2-3. 

A massive 13-game slate to digest today, so be on the lookout for late news

Brooklyn Nets @ Boston Celtics

An intriguing game. I think the Nets may switch things up and start LaMarcus Aldridge, so his props come into play immediately. 

FANTASY BASKETBALL: Waiver wire options for NBA Week 6

'WORST EVER': NBA fans roast $962 million name change

His points/rebounds/assists is set at 22.5 and he could score 20 alone in this one. 

The over is $1.80 on TAB.

Best bet: Player points/rebounds/assists - Aldridge over 22.5

Orlando Magic @ Charlotte Hornets

It’s been a couple of poor games for Franz Wagner, but I think his rebound total looks solid here, sitting at only 3.5. 

The over is $1.68 on TAB

Best bet: Player rebounds - Wagner over 3.5

Los Angeles Lakers @ Indiana Pacers

The Lakers do welcome back LeBron James, but they are a discombobulated mess and are playing a back-to-back with Anthony Davis who is battling an illness. 

The Pacers have been dominant, recently dispatching the Bulls and I think the fact they are only five-point favourites, flatters the Lakers.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Pacers -5

Detroit Pistons @ Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks are favoured by 15.5 points here. That is just a gigantic line. 

I know Detroit is horrible and the Bucks are great, and Milwaukee just crushed the Magic, but I find it hard to pick a team to win by 16 points.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Pistons +15.5

Washington Wizards @ New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans are playing quite poorly. Their lineups make no sense and they have players out.

I think the Wizards can handle this one, but there is a line of a Kyle Kuzma double double/Wizards win priced at $5.50 on Sportsbet. 

Kuzma has double-digit boards in three straight games and I think he does it again.

Best bet: Player performance double - Wizards Win/Kuzma Double Double
