February 8th – 9:30 pm ET – Pepsi Center      

The Milwaukee Bucks make the trip to Denver to play the Nuggets in an exciting inter-conference battle on Monday evening at the Pepsi Center. The Bucks haven’t beaten the Nuggets since 2018 and will be looking to change that.

Milwaukee has gotten off to a decent start to the season, but may be looking to save their best for the playoffs this year. In the past, the Bucks have been the best team in the regular season but have failed to get it done when it matters most. Despite finishing atop the Eastern Conference standings regularly, Giannis Antetokounmpo and company have not been able to reach an NBA final yet.

The Nuggets surprised everyone by coming back and eliminating the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA bubble last summer and have looked like a top team again this year. They will be in tough against the Bucks, but should be able to squeak out a win on their home court.

February 8th – 8:00 pm ET – FedEx Forum       

The Toronto Raptors have been one of the most inconsistent teams to start the NBA season. They have looked like a team that won’t even make the playoffs on some nights, while looking like the 2019 NBA champions on others. It will be interesting to see which team shows up in Memphis on Monday night.

Unlike their opponents, the Grizzlies have actually exceeded expectations early on but it remains to be seen whether they are going to be able to keep up in the competitive Western Conference. They are still susceptible to silly losses on home court like we have seen against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks.

Toronto can be forgiven for struggling early as a result of having to play their home games in Tampa Bay and if they are playing at their best, they will blow away the Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum. Go with the visitors to impress in Memphis.

February 9th– 10:00 pm ET –Golden 1 Center      

The Philadelphia 76ers continue to prove all the doubters wrong as they have lit the league on fire to start the season. Joel Embiid is looking like he can finally live up to his potential, with Tobias Harris also playing his part. The 76ers even picked up a big win against the Indiana Pacers without Embiid in the lineup, demonstrating their depth.

This will be the first meeting between these two clubs this season, but the 76ers have gotten the better of the Sacramento Kings the last three times they have met. Philadelphia has also put up at least 100 points in four of their last five games against the Kings.

Sacramento will be struggling all season to compete in the Western Conference and will likely find themselves on the outside looking in of the playoff picture. They have a tough time against the league’s top teams and that will be evident on Tuesday when the 76ers are in town. Go with the visitors and the over for the action at Golden 1 Center.

February 10th – 8:00 pm ET – Target Center   

This one could be over before it even starts, with the Los Angeles Clippers salivating at the opportunity to take on the woeful Minnesota Timberwolves. The home team has been one of the worst teams in the entire NBA, winning just five of their opening 20 games.

The Clippers have been the complete opposite as they look to prove they are legitimate contenders to win the NBA championship. They were ousted earlier than expected in the NBA bubble last summer and are still looking to make up for it.

The Clippers could opt to rest some players on Wednesday night, but even if they do they will have no issues disposing of their hosts. Los Angeles is just too good for the Timberwolves to keep up with and expect this contest to be a blowout. Go with the visitors to win big in Minnesota.

February 10th – 10:00 pm ET – Staples Center  

Many were expecting to see Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have a slower start to the season after a lengthy stay inside the NBA bubble that saw them win an NBA championship. But that has certainly not been the case, with the Lakers looking hungry to win a second consecutive title.

On Wednesday, they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in a game they will be viewing as a must-win. It is still early in the campaign, but the Lakers will be competing with the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz all season long for top spot in the Western Conference.

This will be the second encounter between these clubs this season, with the Lakers obliterating the Thunder in the first game 128-99 in Oklahoma City. Expect a similar result on Wednesday night at the Staples Center with the Lakers winning big. The over should also be a lock.

February 11th – 10:00 pm ET – Moda Center

The Philadelphia 76ers’ visit to Portland will be the second stop of their Western road trip that includes stops in Sacramento, Utah and Phoenix. Philadelphia has been great at home and on the road early this season and they will not be intimidated to play in another time zone.

Portland will present the 76ers with one of their biggest challenges during their Western stint, but may still have a hard time keeping up. The Trail Blazers have struggled against top teams so far, losing to the Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers already.

While they will be on home court, the 76ers will be too much for them to handle if Embiid and company are playing at their best. Take the visitors to earn another big win on the road in a tight game against the Trail Blazers on Thursday. The over is also worth laying money on at Moda Center.
