Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks

Monday, November 7, 2022 – 08:15 PM EST at State Farm Arena

The Milwaukee Bucks haven’t lost a game this season. Why make sports betting harder than it needs to be? Let’s pick the teams that continue to win. Easy, right?

The Bucks are scoring 114.1 points per 100 possessions while limiting turnovers and earning a high amount of offensive rebounds. The Bucks have brought down 30% of offensive rebounds this season. The Hawks have struggled on the defensive glass, giving up 30.5% of offensive rebounds. They’ve also allowed a free throw rate of 23.8, which is 28th in the league.

On the other hand, the Bucks have been the best defense in the NBA. They’ve allowed just 101 points per 100 possessions and have given up an effective field goal percentage of 48.3%. Those numbers are both the top in the league. They’ve also allowed just 22.6% of offensive rebounds and continue to keep teams off the line, holding a free throw rate of 17.8.

So, while the Bucks haven’t been the best offense this season, the defense has stepped up in a big way. Milwaukee should also be able to dominate the offensive glass and earn second chances while spending more time at the foul line.

The Spread Pick

Although the Bucks are on the road, I’ve got Milwaukee escaping Atlanta with their 10th straight win of the season.

At this time, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trae Young are both listed as day-to-day. But I’m expecting both to play in this game.

Boston Celtics vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Monday, November 7, 2022 - 09:00 PM EST at FedExForum

The Celtics are currently the best offense in the NBA. They’ve scored 118.5 points per 100 possessions and have shot a 57.3% effective field goal percentage. Boston has also limited turnovers and is 3rd in free throw rate offensively.

Jayson Tatum has led the way with 30.3 points per game for the Celtics. He’s also shooting 50% from the field and over 90% from the foul line. He’s really developing into a superstar in the NBA and leading the best offense in the league.

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies are scoring 117.3 points per 100 possessions. That’s 5th in the league. They’ve also been the best team on the offensive glass, with 33.5% of offensive rebounds. The Celtics rarely force turnovers. Memphis should be able to limit mistakes and take more shots. When you take more shots, there’s more opportunity to shoot and score the basketball.

The Grizzlies are still without Jaren Jackson Jr. But Memphis is the healthiest they’ve been since the start of the season. That should help the Grizzlies offensively after they just scored 133 against the Knicks and 123 against the Bulls in their last two games.

Ja Morant has averaged 28.3 points per game on over 48% from the field, But the Grizzlies are also getting solid contributions from Desmond Bane, who’s taking a giant leap in production this season.

The Over/Under Pick

Following the NBA odds, let’s take the Over 230.5.

Phoenix Suns vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Monday, November 7, 2022 - 08:00 PM EST at Wells Fargo Center

The Philadelphia 76ers have listed Joel Embiid as questionable for tonight’s game, but they’re already without James Harden. The defense has really lacked this year, allowing a 55% effective field goal percentage. The defense has also allowed a free throw rate of 22.5, which is bottom-five in the league.

Meanwhile, the Suns are scoring 117.8 points per 100 possessions and have shot an effective field goal percentage of 54.9%. The offense is in the top 10 in every major offensive category, including turnover percentage, offensive rebounding percentage, and free throw rate.

On the other hand, the Suns have held teams to 106.6 points per 100 possessions. The defense fouls a lot and if Embiid is back, the Sixers will likely get to the line more. However, Philadelphia is currently the worst team on the offensive glass, earning just 20.8% of offensive rebounds.

The 76ers typically get good shots but the Suns are one of the better defenses in the league. If the Sixers miss, they’re likely not earning many second chances.

The Moneyline Pick

Let’s take the Suns on the road for our NBA picks.
