Injuries and COVID protocols are hitting the NBA, but that could open up some value for us here today.

Brooklyn Nets @ Chicago Bulls

There is a chance Kevin Durant rests on this second game of a back to back. 

'SO LUCKY': NBA shock as players millimetres from disaster

BRUTAL: NBA legend makes mockery of Zion Williamson dramas

That immediately draws my eyes to James Harden’s points line. It is currently set at just 21.5 points for $1.90 on Sportsbet and I think he can exceed 23 with Durant and go for 26-27 without him.

Best bet player betting: Harden Over 21.5 Points

New York Knicks @ Philadelphia 76ers

No Joel Embiid for Philadelphia so Andre Drummond will get a start. They are also missing Tobias Harris, so there are a lot of shots to go around.

I love looking at Andre Drummond props here. His rebound number is set at 13.5 and for $2.00, you can take the over on TAB. His Points/Rebounds/Assists are also set at just 29.5 on TAB for $1.80. 

He could go over that just with points and rebounds, so the over is good there as well.

On the team side, I get the feeling we are in for a low paced, low scoring game here. The total of 214 on Ladbrokes is very appealing. There is a chance this doesn’t get to 200

Best bet player betting: Drummond Over 13.5 rebounds and/or Drummond Over 29.5 Points/Rebounds/Assists

Best bet game betting: Under 214 total points

Atlanta Hawks @ Golden State Warriors

It is a back to back for Golden State, but given they blew out the Rockets yesterday, Steph Curry and Draymond Green were able to keep their minutes below 30, which helps. 

But, I still think Atlanta can keep it close enough, despite their recent struggles. The line is Warriors -3.5, and I think Atlanta comes close to the upset win, but the +3.5 is enough for me.

Best bet handicap betting: Hawks +3.5

Charlotte Hornets @ Los Angeles Lakers

The Hornets are woeful at stopping opposition big men. Anthony Davis is a good opposition big man. 

His P/R/A line is set at 39.5. He could top that without assists, the only risk we have is a blowout, but the Lakers have not been good enough to blow anyone out recently. I like over that line at TAB for $1.87

Best bet player betting: Davis Over 39.5 P/R/A
