Milwaukee Bucks @ Atlanta Hawks
When these teams have clashed this season, it has been the away team that has enjoyed their day out with three away wins. The Bucks have been on an awful run away from home of late but there are signs of improvement and the Hawks may be on a rotational mode after they clinched the number one seed in the Eastern Conference on Friday night. The Hawks Saturday loss at Charlotte, losing by 115-100, wasn’t a massive surprise and it remains to be seen if they will be back into action for this game.
The Bucks hold a 36-37 record and this includes a road record of 15-22. They lost their most recent game, a home defeat to the Warriors, losing by 95-108 on Saturday. The Bucks currently hold a 3-7 record in their last 10 games.
The Hawks carry a 55-18 record this season and this includes a 31-05 record at home. The loss in Charlotte on Saturday sees the Atlanta side holding a 5-5 record for their last 10 games. For average points scored, the Hawks have a healthy lead of 102.4 to 97.8 and for average points allowed, the Hawks lead 97.3 to 97.6.
The Bucks are monitoring OJ Mayo and Jarded Dudley while the Hawks have a lot of things to think about with respect to player injuries. Mike Scott and Jeff Teague could well be missing and there are minor doubts over Pero Antic, DeMarre Carroll, Al Hordford, Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap.
Taking the Bucks with a +7.5 handicap, at odds of 1.90, should be a decent bet for this game. Bet Now!
Houston Rockets @ Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry is a major doubt for the Raptors on Monday night but when you take on board the fact that he has never managed to beat his old club, this may not be a bad thing. There is also the fact that the Rockets are likely to be without Dwight Howard as the side has been vocal about resting the player for this game due to back spasms.
The Rockets hold a 50-23 record which includes a road record of 23-13. The Houston side are on a four game winning streak which includes a 91-99 win over Washington on Sunday, and the Rockets have a 7-3 record in their last 10 games.
The Raptors are currently 43-30 this season and this includes a home record of 25-13. The Raptors won their most recent, a home win against the Lakers, winning by 94-83 and they are on a 5-5 run for their last 10 games.
With respect to average points scored, the Raptors lead by 104.2 to 103.4 and for average points allowed, the Raptors narrowly lead 101.2 to 100.1. Terrence Jones, Kostas Papanikolaou and Donatas Motiejunas are likely to be absent for the Rockets while Corey Brewer, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard could sit it out. Kyle Lowry is the only concern for the Rockets.
Taking the Houston Rockets with a +1.5 handicap, at odds of 1.90, should be a good way to be on the NBA on Monday. Bet Now!
Boston Celtics @ Charlotte Hornets
This is a game between two teams are still very much in the mix for the Eastern Conference and this could be a crucial game in the playoff hopes of these teams, and the teams around them.

This leaves the Celtics with a 5-5 record in their last 10 games. The Hornets hold a 31-41 record this season and this includes a 17-19 record at home. The Hornets won their most recent game, a 115-100 win over the Hawks on Saturday. The Atlanta side have a 3-7 record in their last ten games, and they will be keen to improve this as much as they can.
For average points scored, the Celtic lead 100.7 to 95.0 and for average points allowed, the Hornets lead 97.1 to 101.6.
The Celtics don’t have any injury concerns but the Hornets are likely to be without Cody Zeller and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist while Mo Williams and Al Jefferson are being monitored closely.
The Hornets should have enough about them in this game and taking them with a modest negative handicap should provide you with a strong bet for Monday. Bet Now!
