Magic 1H -1.5 vs. Warriors

7 p.m. ET ⋅ NBA League Pass

By Albert Nguyen

The Warriors are on the second night of a back-to-back and had a really good showing last night in Miami.

This is more of me backing the Magic, who haven't played since Saturday night. They are 25-10 straight up at home this season.

I usually don't like spots with teams that have a lot of rest, but I really like the Magic defensively. I think the Magic should show up with energy early with the Warriors coming off a back-to-back.

Clippers -5.5 at 76ers

7:30 p.m. ET ⋅ ESPN

By Jay Money

This is a major bounce-back spot for the Clippers.

They head on the road for this one, and sometimes when teams are in a rut, the best thing they can do is go on the road and get some camaraderie. They are 6-0 against the spread when going to the Eastern and Central time zones after a home game.

The last time these two played, the 76ers came out smoking hot from 3 and shot 48% from behind the arc. This will be the third game in four nights for each team. The Clippers are coming off some bad games of late, so I expect a spirited effort from them.

Jazz 1H -1.5 vs. Spurs

9 p.m. ET ⋅ NBA League Pass

By Albert Nguyen

First off, I'm fading the Spurs, who just had a miraculous win over the Suns without Victor Wembanyama. Now, I'm expecting a letdown spot for a young San Antonio team.

Utah had a really good first half against the Mavericks last time out, and I think it will bounce back in this one. A lot of signs point toward the Jazz tonight, and I don't want to mess with the whole game because these are two teams that are both struggling at the moment.

I think the first half is easier to handicap and a safer spot.

Nuggets -7.5 vs. Suns

10 p.m. ET ⋅ ESPN

By Matt Moore

Denver rested both Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray two games ago against the Trail Blazers. They rested Murray once again, on Monday versus the Grizzlies. Murray has gotten about six days of rest, and Denver has been staggering starters to get them necessary rest, but I expect a full cast tonight against the Suns.

They are going to smash this team. I rarely say this, but I think the Suns are going to get demolished.

I wish Phoenix was fully healthy, but it has Jusuf Nurkic and Bradley Beal questionable. The Nuggets lost to the Suns last time out when Denver looked horrible for three quarters, staged a comeback, pushed it to overtime, and they ran out of gas.

It's the most upset I have seen the Nuggets about a regular-season loss in the last two years. This is a highly-motivated spot for Denver against a team that just beat it in its own building.
