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: Philadelphia 76ers @ Orlando Magic
Date: Monday, April 16th, 7:00 ET
Location: Amway Center, Orlando, FL
NBA Betting Odds: Philadelphia -3.5
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

My, how far the Magic have fallen… The one-time beasts of the East are literally just clinging to the fact that they are going to be in the playoffs, and they are going to need this game to make sure that they don’t end up being in a spot where they have to win some clashes down the stretch just to avoid both Miami and Chicago in the first round of the playoffs. Orlando has scored 88 or fewer in four of its last five games, all of which have come without Dwight Howard in the fold. The Sixers are going to be reminded of the fact that they just haven’t played well in this series of late, and this is a golden opportunity to steal a game on the road and to put some more distance between themselves and the Bucks to make sure that they are a part of the Eastern Conference playoffs this year.

NBA Pick: Philadelphia -3.5

NBA Matchup: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Los Angeles Clippers
Date: Monday, April 16th, 10:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -2.5
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

The Clippers are going to have to look out for the combo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant in this one. These two haven’t historically played all that well against LA and in this building, but they are coming off of a win against Minnesota in which they scored 75 points between them. They are the best scoring tandem in the league this side of LeBron and D-Wade. That being said, with a 20-8 ATS mark in their last 28 games in this series, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, and the Clippers have to have a lot of confidence that they are going to be able to hang around with the Thunder here at home. Look for the hosts to pull off the mild upset on Monday night to inch closer to the Lakers for the lead in the Pacific Division.

NBA Pick: Los Angeles +2.5
