Brooklyn Nets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Odds, Spread and Total

This should be a fun showcase overseas, but the Nets don't come into this matchup playing their best basketball.

Brooklyn is just 3-7 in its last 10 games, and the team has only covered the spread in two games since Dec. 14.

Cleveland won the first meeting between these teams by one in Brooklyn, but the Cavs won't have Darius Garland or Evan Mobley in this matchup.

Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks Odds, Spread and Total

Boston needed overtime to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, and now it's on the second night of a back-to-back for a highly-anticipated matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Celtics have been impressive on the second night of back-to-backs this season, going 4-2 against the spread. Meanwhile, the Bucks have dropped two in a row and five of their last 10.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Odds, Spread and Total

Oklahoma City picked up a nice road win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday, and now it has a quick turnaround against a Portland team that was blown out by New York on Tuesday.

The Blazers are just 10-10 against the spread as road dogs, and now they have to take on an OKC team that is 3-1 ATS on the second night of back-to-backs and an impressive 11-3 against the spread when favored at home.

New York Knicks vs. Dallas Mavericks Odds, Spread and Total

The key in this game?

The Dallas Mavericks are expected to be without superstar Luka Doncic, who has been ruled out with an ankle sprain. The team may also not have center Dereck Lively II, who is listed as doubtful.

New York has yet to lose a game since acquiring OG Anunoby, and the Knicks are 6-2 against the spread as road favorites, one of the best marks in the NBA.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers Odds, Spread and Total

We have a pick'em between two teams that were expected to contend for a title this season but have underperformed expectations to date.

The Lakers have dominated the Suns this season, winning the first three meetings between the teams. However, Phoenix does have all three players of its Big 3 expected to suit up tonight.

The Suns are 8-7 on the road, while the Lakers are 13-6 at home.
