Entering Thanksgiving week, there’s plenty of basketball on the docket. Let’s take a look at the opening lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for Monday’s slate.

We enter Thanksgiving week with a massive 11-game slate set for Monday night in the NBA. There are a few key spots for certain teams while a handful of games offer nothing but betting and fantasy to look forward to. Let’s take a look at a few of the marquee matchups first, shall we?

The best games for Monday night are as follows: 76ers vs. the Raptors and Bucks vs. the Jazz. And that’s it. So nine games are basically meaningless, but give us a ton of betting and fantasy basketball options, of course.

The Bucks are on a seven-game winning streak and head to Utah to take on the Jazz, who are 8-1 at home this season, but are much more vulnerable on the road. Milwaukee is now on top of the Eastern Conference ahead of the Celtics, who are back home against the Kings. Toronto, like Utah, is dominant at home this season, going 6-0 in the early going. It will be a tough task for the Sixers, who are on a four-game winning streak, but are mostly playing down to their competition.

While those are the two best matchups on paper, there’s plenty of good basketball to look forward to. Below are point spreads and the over/under for each of the ten games on schedule for tonight:

Nets @ Cavaliers (-1, 217.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Grizzlies @ Pacers (-9, 217.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Magic @ Pistons (-4.5, 207.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
