The NBA kicks off the week with 10 exciting matchups across the league! A quarter of the way through the season, the conference standings are truly taking shape!
On Monday night, the Chicago Bulls will look to take on the struggling Utah Jazz. In the East, the Cleveland Cavaliers will be looking for payback when they take on the Toronto Raptors. And in the last game of the night, the Indiana Pacers will look to beat the Los Angeles Lakers.
Let's check out the bets!
When: 9:00 PM EST
|Chicago Bulls||+2.5 (-110)||O 235.0 (-110)||+120|
|Utah Jazz||-2.5 (-110)||U 235.0 (-110)||-140|
The Chicago Bulls are entering this game off the back of an overtime loss in their last match. The Utah Jazz are on a four-game losing streak, while also going 3-7 over their last 10 games.
When they take on the Utah Jazz, the Chicago Bulls will need to improve on a defensive effort that allowed their opponents to shoot 46.3% from the field in their last game. The Jazz's form over their last 10 games is definitely something of concern, as they've allowed their opponents to shoot 49% from the field on the top of committing 14.8 turnovers per game.
The Jazz will have their hands full when they take on the Bulls. Chicago's veteran leadership and individual scoring talent should earn them the win against the Utah Jazz.
When: 7:30 PM EST
|Cleveland Cavaliers||+1.0 (-107)||O 219.0 (-107)||-105|
|Toronto Raptors||-1.0 (-107)||U 219.0 (-107)||-110|
The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to get back on the winning track after dropping their last game. Despite significant injuries to key players, the Toronto Raptors are coming off of a surprising win in their last game.
Despite their recent loss, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been playing excellent basketball - going 4-1 over their last five games while shooting 51.7% from the field. The Toronto Raptors have overcome their recent injuries by finding production in role players, notably 30 points off the bench in their last game.
The Toronto Raptors are a gritty team regardless of lineup, but the Cleveland Cavaliers should have just too much for the Raptors to handle. Without the same scoring threat, the Raptors won't be able to keep up with the Cavaliers.
When: 10:00 PM EST
|Indiana Pacers||+4.5 (-110)||O 234.5 (-110)||+152|
|Los Angeles Lakers||-4.5 (-110)||U 234.5 (-110)||-180|
The Indiana Pacers are on a great run of form, going 8-2 over their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Lakers have finally found a positive streak as well, going 5-1 over their last six games!
The Pacers have been finding victories through their excellent pressure on defense (16.2 turnovers forced per game), 47.0% shooting efficiency from the field, and 36.3% from three over their last ten games. The Los Angeles Lakers have been able to compete as of late due to some consistency from three, where they're shooting 36.2% over their last six games - well above their 31.9% season average.
The Los Angeles Lakers have home-court advantage, but the Pacers play on the break just as well as them. Expect the Pacers to get the upset against a confident Lakers side.
