More double-double magic
The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to play great basketball. The Cavs have won six of their last seven games and currently sit fifth in the Eastern Conference. They will be looking to stay warm when they host the New York Knicks on Monday night.
The Knicks are in a tough spot. They managed to get the win over the Los Angeles Clippers yesterday, but are playing their second game in as many days and have taken a few hits in their frontcourt as Nerlens Noel and Mitchell Robinson are questionable for this game.
It could spell a big day for Cavs big man Jarrett Allen. Allen has been a force on the inside for the Cavs this season averaging 16.3 points and 11 rebounds per game and he’s been a double-double machine from the schedule switch until 2022.
Allen has recorded a double-double eight times in his last 11 games averaging 14.5 points and 11.7 rebounds over that streak. He also went for 18 points and 17 boards in his only other meeting against New York this season. Allen looks like a great bet to record another double-double against a tired, battered Knicks squad.
Take: Jarrett Allen Double-Double – Yes (-120 to DraftKings)
Covers NBA betting analysis
Clean Indy Glass
Welcome to the “let’s pick the Indiana Pacers” part of the article. The Pacers, despite surprising wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors, appear to be closing in on the trade deadline when the much-talked-about sale begins.
For now, they will once again head into tonight’s game with the New Orleans Pelicans shorthanded. Domantas Sabonis, Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon will all miss this game while Caris LeVert is questionable.
Missing Sabonis and Turner is a blow for a team that is normally strong on the glass. But without those two on the ground, there should be little resistance on the boards for Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas.
The Pels big man is averaging 12 rebounds per game this season and the sportsbooks know it’s a juicy game for him, so they’ve bumped his Over/Under rebound up to 13.5. But that’s still not high enough to deter us.
JV has downed 14 or more boards four times in its last eight games and caught 13 in its previous meeting against the Pacers this season. Let’s not think too much about it, Valanciunas should have no trouble clearing the glass in this one with the Pacers on several of their best rebounders.
Take: Jonas Valanciunas More than 13.5 rebounds (-120 in FanDuel)
Insult to Chicago injuries
The injury bug has bitten the Chicago Bulls and it has undoubtedly hurt them. The Bulls have lost six of their last seven games and lost first place in the Eastern Conference. So even a matchup with the offensively challenged Oklahoma City Thunder might be tougher than you normally imagine.
The Bulls will be without Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, while Zach LaVine remains questionable and their offense missed, it’s the defense that’s really struggling. During that seven-game streak, the Bulls rank last in defensive standings and 28th in opposing scoring.
But what really killed the Bulls were the opposing guards. Chicago ranks dead last in scoring by opposing guard and second to last in field goal percentage by opposing guard.
Now, that might not seem like a problem against the Thunder, but guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is in a groove right now.
SGA is averaging 27.9 points on 47.9 percent shooting over its last seven games. Gilgeous-Alexander also did a great job of reaching the charity strip, attempting 7.9 free throws per game during that span.
With less experienced guards tasked with slowing SGA down, going past his 24.5 point overall seems like a solid bet, especially considering he’s topped that number five times in his last seven games.
Take: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Over 24.5 points (-120 at DraftKings)
