A nice 3-2 day yesterday that would’ve been better had Jordan Poole not shot 80% to go over his points prop.

Let's take a look at today's markets.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Atlanta Hawks

There is the possibility that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out of this game, so the blowout looks on.

That could mean reduced minutes for Hawks players, so Trae Young may struggle to hit his points prop, which is set at 25.5. 

The under is $1.81 on Sportsbet.

Best bet: Player points - Young under 25.5

Indiana Pacers @ Chicago Bulls

I know the Bulls just played yesterday, but they should not be just 1.5 point favourites (TAB) over the Pacers. 

The Pacers are quite up and down, but Chicago has been consistently good and are playing at home.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Bulls -1.5

Houston Rockets @ Boston Celtics

Another blowout possibility, with Boston also welcoming back Robert Williams and Jaylen Brown to the lineup. 

With the margin potentially looking large, Al Horford should see fewer minutes and could see extended rest. 

His recent production has come because of Williams’ absence, so I like taking his points under, which is 13.5 for $1.87 on Sportsbet. 

Easing Brown back after his hamstring also seems like the ideal play and his points is set at 19.5. The under is $1.85 on TAB.

Best bet: Player points - Horford under 13.5

Best bet: Player points - Brown under 19.5

Philadelphia 76ers @ Sacramento Kings

The Kings have been given the new coach bump here, favourites by 3.5 points against a Sixers team without Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid. 

But I’m not buying it. I’ll take Philly here.

Best bet: Hadicap betting - Sixers +3.5
