On Monday, there are a handful of games on the basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NBA picks for Monday!
NBA Matchup: Phoenix Suns @ Dallas Mavericks
Date: Monday, January 23rd, 8:35 ET
Location: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX
NBA Betting Odds: Dallas -6NBA TV Schedule: FOX Sports
The Suns are just trying to stay right around the .500 mark, while the Mavericks are going to try to survive this week without Dirk Nowitzki. It is going to be a tough game for sure, and points could be at a premium. If that’s the case, we’ll take the points in this one, as a confident set of Suns with two straight wins on the East Coast against good clubs could at least keep this one close.
NBA Pick: Phoenix +6
NBA Matchup: Memphis Grizzlies @ Golden State Warriors
Date: Monday, January 23rd, 10:30 ET
Location: Oracle Arena, San Francisco, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Golden State -1.5NBA TV Schedule: Comcast Sports, NBA TV
The Grizzlies are hot right now, having won six in a row. They’re coming off of their most impressive win of the year over the Sacramento Kings in which they scored a whopping 128 points. That being said, this one smells a little fishy with the Warriors as favorites. The home team has won seven in a row in this series, and that is going to be the case again in this one. With Stephen Curry back in the lineup, Golden State is a force to be reckoned with.
NBA Pick: Golden State -1.5
