New Orleans Pelicans @ Cleveland Cavaliers – 3pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the New Orleans pelicans CJ McCollum. He will likely have to shoulder. The load of this one is New Orleans will be without Brandon Ingram and former number one overall pick Zion Williamson. It certainly won’t be an easy task for him or New Orleans in this game as they head to Cleveland, because the Cavaliers have been one of the best teams at home all season long. However, I look for McCollum to step up and put up a solid performance as I have him going over his total points in this game.

My second pick for this game is for the Cleveland Cavaliers Donovan Mitchell. Despite his sluggish performance in their last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, I expect him to bounce back in a big way in this one at home. He seems to elevate his game when the Cleveland Cavaliers are inside of rocket mortgage, Fieldhouse and I look for him to go over his total points in this huge matchup against one of the best teams in the Western Conference.

Miami Heat @ Atlanta Hawks – 3:30pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the Miami Heat Jimmy Butler. When it comes to consistency, he is one of the best group of players in the league. His work ethic is nearly unmatched and that’s why he’s such a perfect fit for the Miami Heat culture and that is why he has been so great since coming to South Beach. I expect him to have another solid game in this one as they hit the road to play their southeast division rivals, the Atlanta Hawks. As I look for Jimmy Butler to go over his total points on Monday afternoon.

My second pick for this game is for the Atlanta Hawks Trae Young. He is one of the top five point guards in the entire league and I expect him to put that on full display in this game against the Miami Heat. He is currently listed as day-to-day on the injury report, but I expect him to play in this game on Martin Luther King Jr. day as the Hawks will be looking to pick up an all important conference win against one of the better teams in the East. I have Trae Young going over his total points in this one.

Utah Jazz @ Minnesota Timberwolves – 4pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the Utah Jazz’s Lauri Markkanen. Nobody would have predicted it, but he has been the shining star in the trade between the Utah Jazz and the Cleveland Cavaliers, at least from the Utah side of things. He is blossoming into a full-blown superstar in the league as he has his own team to lead, and he is likely going to be an all-star this year as well. He comes into this game averaging over 20 points per contest that I have him going over his total points on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

My second pick for this game is for the Minnesota Timberwolves Anthony Edwards. The former number one overall pick is quickly rising up the ranks in the NBA. As he is once again putting up impressive numbers this season, and I look for that to continue in this game against the Utah Jazz. Despite him and Markkanen both being listed as day today on the injury report, I expect them both to play in this one and I also expect Anthony Edwards to go over his total points.

Phoenix Suns @ Memphis Grizzlies – 6pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies to combine to go over their total points in this game. These two teams have two of the highest scoring offenses in the league, and I expect this to be a back-and-forth shoot out throughout the entire 48 or more minutes that the game is being played. Phoenix comes into this game averaging around 112 and a half points per game while Memphis comes into this game averaging around 117 and a half points per game this season. 

My second pick for this game is for the Memphis Grizzlies to pick up the victory over the Phoenix Suns at home in this game on Monday evening. These two Western Conference teams have met twice this season, and both teams have won one game a piece. Weirdly enough. The winning team scored exactly 125 points in both games so one thing you can expect is a high scoring back-and-forth competitive game. But in the end I have the Memphis Grizzlies coming out on top to pick up their second win over the Phoenix Suns this year.

Houston Rockets @ Los Angeles Lakers – 10:30pm ET

My first pick for this game is for the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James. In the first game of the Los Angeles Lakers back to back on Sunday evening, LeBron put up a terrific performance against the Philadelphia 76ers. LeBron scored 35 points but unfortunately the Los Angeles Lakers fell just short as they suffered a one point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. I expect another solid performance out of LeBron in this game as he looks to turn the Lakers fortunes around on Martin Luther King Jr. day.

My second pick for this game is for the Los Angeles Lakers to pick up the victory and cover the spread against one of the worst teams in the entire league. The Houston Rockets have been absolutely dreadful this year and yes, while the Lakers have had their down moments, they have been nowhere near as bad as Houston has. I look for this one to be one of those games that LeBron James absolutely takes over and leads the Lakers to a victory in.
