I’m going to make my opinions on these games short and sweet.
The first game I am looking at is Bulls @ Hawks. I like the Hawks -1 and I think that pick is pretty obvious. I almost feel like I am walking into a trap but this just seems like an obvious spot for a home win here. The Hawks have been playing pretty well at home recently so I am taking them tonight.
The next game where I have a pick is Pelicans @ Suns. The Pelicans are only 4.5 point favorites but it should be more. They have lost three of their last two games. But even with the drama surrounding Anthony Davis they have played pretty well. Jrue Holliday and Julius Randle have benefited from their expanded roles. I like them to cover tonight in Phoenix.
My last pick comes from the Clippers @ Kings game. The Kings are 3.5 point favorites at home and I like them to cover here. Both of these teams are fighting for the 8 spot in the west with the Clippers holding a slight 2 game lead. The Clippers have won the previous 3 matchups between these 2 teams but they were all before the trade deadline. Both of these teams look different now and I think that benefits the Kings.
