The Bulls are coming off a complete collapse against the Spurs in a game they should have won. They face a much tougher opponent in the surging Nuggets, who have won eight of their last 10 games and are currently in a tie for fifth place in the Western Conference. The spread is 7 points, and if nothing else, Chicago should at least cover that, even if winning on the road in Denver is a tough ask.
The pick: Chicago +7 @ -105
The Pistons pulled out a surprising win over the Raptors on Wednesday and stayed close with the Nets over the weekend. The Rockets aren't much better than they are, and still have several key players injured. There aren't many games where it would make sense to pick Detroit going in, but this is one where the plus odds on their moneyline are actually worth the risk.
The pick: Pistons ML @ +120
The Timberwolves pulled off one of their most improbable wins of the year on Thursday in Phoenix behind monster performances from Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. It's highly unlikely that the team with the league's worst record will beat one of the west's top teams two nights in a row on their home court, so the better value here is on the point total, which is set at 231.5. These teams hit that number comfortably on Thursday, and you can get plus odds on them to do it again.
The pick: Over 231.5 total points @ +120
