It’s been a rough week or so of picking games. But we’re still here, still selling real fake doors and all that, still trucking along trying to get out of the basement of NBA sports betting and back into the green. And tonight is the perfect night to do just that, right? Well, that’s still to be seen. We’ve got a lot of heavy favorites on the slate tonight and a few injuries to track. If Kawhi Leonard is going to play for the Clippers, we could see Kawhi and PG-13 on the court together with the Paul George vs. the Thunder and Chris Paul vs. the Clippers double-sided narrative in play.

Most of you don’t care too much about that anyway, so let’s get into some picks for tonight on DraftKings Sportsbook:

Knicks (-5) vs. Cavaliers
Hornets (+8) @ Raptors
Pacers (+3) @ Nets
Rockets (-7.5) vs. Trail Blazers
Bucks (-8.5) @ Bulls
Mavericks (-5) vs. Spurs
Suns (-3) vs. Celtics
Timberwolves (+9.5) at Jazz
Thunder (+9.5) @ Clippers
