NBA Monday Betting Picks
Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers
Wells Fargo Center, 7pm (ET)
The Chicago Bulls and the Philadelphia 76ers will meet for the third time this season when they go to battle on Monday night. The series is currently tied at one win apiece, with both teams registering their win as the traveling team.
Looking to become the first team to hold home court in this series, the 76ers will do the honours of playing hosts. They’ve done a fantastic job of taking care of business at home this season with wins in 26/36 games, and are also riding a big eight game win streak at the moment, which equals their season-high.
Meanwhile, the Bulls will be looking to continue their hot form that has seen them win four of their last five games, which is also their best five-game stretch of the season. It’s been a troubling campaign for a team that perhaps overachieved last season and are certainly underachieving this time around.
The Bulls have pulled off some great wins in recent weeks, but they’ll need to up the ante once again if they’re to knock over the 76ers who are one of the form teams of the competition right now. It’s a tall task for the Bulls and one I don’t have much faith in them pulling off. The 76ers should be winning this and covering the spread as well.
Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets
Toyota Center, 11pm (ET)
The Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets will be facing each other on Monday night for what will be their fourth and final meeting of the season. The Warriors are 3-0 in the series and will be eyeing off a sweep.
The Warriors have been two different teams this season – the home team that’s 29-7 and the road team that’s 7-29. It’s truly remarkable how contrasting their home and away form is this season. In fact, they’ve won the second most amount of home games this season and have lost the most road games in the entire league.
The Rockets are clearly in a rebuilding phase and will be drafting high in the upcoming lottery based on their poor record, but that hasn’t stopped them from reeling off a number of wins over the past fortnight. They enter this game having won five of their last nine games, including three of their last four at home.
The Warriors are clearly the far better team in this matchup, but they’ve lost 11 in the row on their travels and simply don’t deserve to be such heavy favourites. As a result, I’m keen to back the Rockets in to cover the big spread on this occasion.
