NBA Picks January 12th

Sacramento Kings vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Tipoff – 7:30 pm EST

Spread: 76ers -1

Total: 240.5

Joel Embiid is expected to miss his third straight game tomorrow, this one at home against the Sacramento Kings. The Philadelphia 76ers are 2-6 this season when their big man has been on the sidelines. And the Kings are a very good road team, ranking third in the NBA (tied with Philadelphia, ironically) with a 10-7 record on the road. I love the Kings +1 here. And I think the total should be in the mid-230s, and that’s with Embiid suiting up, so I’m playing the Under as well.

Best Bet: Kings +1 (-110), Kings/76ers Under 240.5 (-110)



Indiana Pacers vs. Atlanta Hawks

Tipoff – 7:30 pm EST

Spread: Hawks -5

Total: 254.5

Neither of these teams plays any defense, so this game is sure to be fireworks. But a 254.5 total? With no Tyrese Haliburton playing for the Indiana Pacers? With Haliburton in uniform, I’d expect this game to get into the high 240s. So, without him, I’m definitely taking the Under on Friday. And the Pacers are keeping afloat without their star guard this season, going 2-2 when he’s been out. I’m sprinkling on them covering the spread tomorrow in Atlanta

Best Bet: Pacers +5 (-110), Pacers/Hawks Under 254.5 (-110)
