Brooklyn Nets vs. Los Angeles Clippers Odds, Spread and Total

The Nets pulled off an upset on Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers, but they are still just 3-15 against the spread in their last 18 games and 4-14 overall.

That could be an issue against a Los Angeles Clippers team that is 12-8 ATS as a home favorite and winning those games by 10.8 points per game on average.

Miami Heat vs. Orlando Magic Odds, Spread and Total

Miami lost as a home favorite on Friday night, and now it may have to take on the Orlando Magic with the return of its second-leading scorer -- Franz Wagner -- who is questionable on Sunday.

The Heat are just 3-5-1 ATS as home favorites while the Magic are 6-3 ATS when set as home underdogs.

Denver Nuggets vs. Washington Wizards Odds, Spread and Total

The Denver Nuggets have been one of the worst road teams to bet on this season, going 8-14 against the spread, but they are massively favored against the league's worst defense -- the Washington Wizards -- on Sunday.

Washington is just 5-9 against the spread as a home underdog this season.

Boston Celtics vs. Houston Rockets Odds, Spread and Total

Boston dominated the Houston Rockets earlier this season in Boston, and the team is heavily favored again on Sunday.

The Rockets went to overtime on Saturday night against Utah, and this is a tough turnaround for a team that is 3-3-1 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back.

Still, Boston is just 7-10-2 ATS when favored on the road this season.

Indiana Pacers vs. Phoenix Suns Odds, Spread and Total

Even with Tyrese Haliburton returning and Pascal Siakam making his Pacers debut, Indiana lost to the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. the team is now set as a five-point dog to the Suns, who are on fire lately.

Phoenix blew out the New Orleans Pelicans -- in New Orleans -- on Friday, and the team is on a four-game winning streak. Still, bettors need to beware, as the Suns are just 6-13 ATS as home favorites in the 2023-24 season.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers Odds, Spread and Total

Can the Lakers avenge their loss to the Nets when they take on a bad Portland team tonight?

LeBron James and company certainly hope so, but they are just 7-10 ATS as home favorites this season. Laying double-digits with the Lakers may be a tough sell on Sunday.
