American Betting Experts newest tipster ‘Chrissy Screw’ provides three picks from Monday’s NBA slate for those looking to start with week with some winning bets.

Pacers vs 76ers (+2) O/U 213

On a really dull NBA Monday slate we start with the best game of the bunch. Both teams are shorthanded with Philly’s Joel Embiid ruled out and Indy’s Malcolm Brogdon and Domantas Sabonis both questionable to play. 70% of betting tickets are on the Pacers along with only 51% of money. With a star like Embiid on the shelf the public is predictably on the Pacers at home but the *sharp money* is coming in hot on the 76ers. I love the Sixers here, I think the line is telling and its baiting the public to take the Pacers at home but im not taking the cheese give me Philly +2. Both teams are in the bottom third of the league in pace and both teams are in the top 10 in Defensive Rating, those stats coupled with some injuries to big stars makes the under 213 a great value play.

**Sharp Money refers to a large discrepancy between the total number of bets on a team and the total amount of money wagered on that team. If the percentage of the total money wagered on one team is significantly higher than the percentage of total bets on that team it signifies sharp money.

Lakers vs Cavs (+13.5) O/U 219.5

Out of nowhere the Cavs are hot. The team has rallied around Coach John Beilein after a controversial team meeting made headlines last week. They are 2-0 since, with impressive road wins over Detroit and Denver. Anthony Davis is questionable to play with a back injury, his status is huge for the outcome of this game. This being a rather meaningless game in January against a 12-27 Cavalier team, my guess is Davis will be held out to preserve his health for the stretch run. If Davis doesn’t play I’m taking the Cavs and the points, they’re playing their best ball of the season and should be juiced up to play the Lebron James-led Lakers in Tinseltown.

Blazers vs Hornets (+9.5) O/U 216

The Hornets are on the second night of a back-to-back as well as playing their 4th game in 6 nights. This is a really bad spot for a young Hornets team without a lot of talent or depth. I think the grueling schedule catches up to them tonight and Portland has their way from the jump. The tired Hornets are 27th in the NBA in Defensive Rating, that bodes well for a Blazers scoring outburst. With that said, I have a special triple play for the people.
