We take a look at the initial spreads on DraftKings Sportsbook for Saturday’s seven-game NBA card.

Saturday’s NBA lineup will feature a seven-game NBA slate, starting with a matchup between the Houston Rockets and Minnesota Timberwolves at 5:00 p.m. ET. The Portland Trailblazers and Milwaukee Bucks will wrap up the action following with a 10:00 p.m. ET tip.

The New Orleans Pelicans will take on the Boston Celtics at TD Garden at 7:00 p.m. ET. Lonzo Ball will look to stay hot for the visiting team while the home team will attempt to end its three game losing streak.

Another game to look out for will be between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder at 8:00 p.m. ET. Anthony Davis is with his team to Oklahoma City but recovering from soreness following a hard fall he took against the New York Knicks in his last appearance. The Thunder’s guard trio of Chris Paul, Dennis Schroeder, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander should help make this contest an interesting one if Los Angeles is missing one of its superstars.

Here are the initial lines for tonight’s nine-game slate on DraftKings Sportsbook:

Timberwolves @ Rockets (-11) 5:00 p.m. ET
Pelicans @ Celtics (-8.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Bulls @ Pistons (-3.5, 217) 7:00 p.m. ET
Lakers @ Thunder (-1) 8:00 p.m. ET
76ers @ Mavericks (-2, 223.5) 8:30 p.m. ET
Cavaliers @ Nuggets (-12.5) 9:00 p.m. ET
Bucks @ Trail Blazers (+5.5) 10:00 p.m. ET
