Opening NBA point spreads for January 19th schedule

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

There will be a light, two-game NBA slate on Sunday. There will be a sizable gap between the two contests, as the first of the duo will tip off at 3:00 p.m. ET while the final game of the day will get rolling at 8:00 p.m. ET.

The Miami Heat will attempt to top the San Antonio Spurs for the second time this week in the early game at the AT&T center to extend their winning streak to three games after suffering an unexpected loss to the New York Knicks last Sunday. The Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan is piping hot and has scored at least 25 points in eight straight contests. Jimmy Butler remains the Heat’s ringleader, but a different player seems to step up and have a great performance every other game for Miami.

The Indiana Pacers have rattled off four straight wins and are looking to snap the Denver Nuggets’ three-game winning streak at the Pepsi Center. Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis will face off against the league’s best playmaking big man in Nikola Jokic.

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

Heat @ Spurs (+1.5) 3:00 p.m. ET
Pacers @ Nuggets (-1.5, 211.5) 8:00 p.m. ET

Note: Bets and DFS players will lock at those specific game times.
