NBA Picks February 23, 2024

San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Tipoff: 10:30 pm EST
Spread: Lakers -10
Total: 239

Both teams played on Thursday night and took losses in their respective games. The Lakers were without LeBron James in the game against the Warriors. Additionally, the Spurs lost a close game against the Kings.

This season, the Spurs have struggled defensively, especially in the second game of back-to-back situation. In fact, the Spurs are allowing 125.8 points per game in that span.

Further, in the five road games on back-to-back situations, the Spurs are allowing 132.2 points per game. Lastly, the Spurs have allowed at least 127 points in four of the five games. I expect the Lakers’ offense to find success in this game without LeBron James.

Best Bet: Lakers TT Over 125

Charlotte Hornets vs. Golden State Warriors

Tipoff – 10:00 pm EST
Spread: -13
Total: 229

The Charlotte Hornets are playing outstanding basketball dating back before the All-Star break. Further, the Hornets went into Utah last night and got the outright victory as a 10-point underdog. Over the last seven games, the Hornets have 6-1 ATS.

The Hornets are in a back-to-back situation tonight against the Warriors. On the second leg of a back-to-back game, the Hornets are 6-3 ATS. Furthermore, the Warriors have struggled this season at home, covering the spread.

In fact, the Warriors are 13-16 ATS and are only 1-3 ATS when favored by double-digits at home. I believe the Hornets continue covering double-digit spreads.

Best Bet: Hornets +13

 

YTD Record: 37-23 (61.6%)
