There is so much NBA on today with 13 games, so we have to pick our spots.

Washington Wizards @ Cleveland Cavaliers

Collin Sexton will be out for Cleveland with his torn meniscus and I think the Cavs are being underrated due to that. 

They are underdogs, despite playing at a very high level.

I think they can win, but they are being given three points on TAB for $1.95. 

I also like Darius Garland’s points over-under, but the under side. It is set at 19.5 points on TAB for $1.95, and I think while he is very good, he could go under here. 

I also look at Washington. Spencer Dinwiddie has been in a bit of a slump, but I like him going over 15.5 points here.

Best bet: Player points - Dinwiddie over 15.5 Points

Best bet: Player points - Garland under 19.5 Points

Best bet: Handicap betting - Cavs +3

Milwaukee Bucks @ New York Knicks

The Bucks are on a back-to-back, without Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton, and on the road.

So why are they only four-point underdogs? That doesn’t add up. 

Yes, the Knicks have depth issues at centre with Nerlens Noel and Mitchell Robinson both banged up, but they should still get it done comfortably. 

You can get New York at $1.95 at Sportsbet to cover.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Knicks -4

Charlotte Hornets @ Memphis Grizzlies

What stands out to me here is the game total. Both teams have had a lot of defensive issues.

TAB has the total at 228.5 and I think this could push over 240 points given the defensive issues on both sides.

Best bet: Total points - Over 228.5

Sacramento Kings @ San Antonio Spurs

Dejounte Murray has been the Spurs’ breakout star this year and has become their number one offensive option. 

He has gone over 18.5 points in five of his last seven games and last game shot horribly, leading to the under. 

I think he gets it going here and goes over. At TAB, over 18.5 is going for $2.00.

Best bet: Player points - Murray over 18.5 Points
