Only ended with three bets on Friday due to injuries, but a 2-1 result nonetheless.

Let’s attack Monday with vigour considering how many games are on.

Los Angeles Lakers @ Miami Heat

Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry are out, but the Lakers have been struggling to cover their spread all season and they are just flat out not good.

So the Heat, who are good, are only 2.5 point favourites. That’s off. The Heat should cover.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Heat -2.5

Atlanta Hawks @ Charlotte Hornets

These teams have struggled defensively most of the season, so that’s when we look at the game total.

It’s at 234.5 on Sportsbet, with over paying $1.86.

They could conceivably hit 250 in this game.

Best bet: Game total - Over 234.5

Philadelphia 76ers @ San Antonio Spurs

Joel Embiid is great. He’s destroying teams. But, the points line set at 32.5 is too much.

Jakob Poeltl is a good defender, the Spurs are a slower team and expecting anyone to go over 32 is a tall order.

The under is $1.85 on TAB.

Best bet: Player points - Embiid under 32.5

Portland Trail Blazers @ Toronto Raptors

Precious Achiuwa is back on the bench with Gary Trent Jr. healthy, but he can still grab boards with Khem Birch sidelined.

If I had to find a line for field goals missed, it might be the same as his rebound line, set at 5.5.

I think he goes over and on TAB it pays $2.15.

Best bet: Player rebounds - Achiuwa over 5.5

Chicago Bulls @ Orlando Magic

It should be another big minutes night for Ayo Dosunmu. He has totalled at least six assists in four straight games, the four games he has played huge minutes in.

His assists line is 5.5 and over 5.5 is paying $2.20 on TAB.

Best bet: Player assists - Dosunmu over 5.5
