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: Cleveland Cavaliers @ Memphis Grizzlies
Date: Monday, April 23rd, 8:00 ET
Location: FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
NBA Betting Odds: Memphis -13
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

The Grizzlies are hot, while the Cavaliers are not at the moment, but if you look a little bit closer, you might see an interesting trend. Memphis has picked up four SU victories in a row, but three of the four wins are by seven points or fewer, and all four are against teams that aren’t going to be in the playoffs. The team has just one cover in its last seven games as well. Cleveland has gotten blown out of the water at times, but there are also games like the win over the New York Knicks in which the team has shown some spunk. We do think that the Grizz are going to keep this winning streak up, knowing that it is just a game and a half back of being the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, but we’ll take the nearly two full touchdowns on our side with the visitors.

NBA Pick: Cleveland +13

NBA Matchup: Portland Trail Blazers @ San Antonio Spurs
Date: Monday, April 23rd, 8:30 ET
Location: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX
NBA Betting Odds: San Antonio -13.5
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

Here’s a case where we know that a team is going to be out for blood. The Spurs were beaten by a whopping 40 points in a 137-97 loss to the Blazers at the Rose Garden in February, and they aren’t going to take this one lightly. A win ensures the No. 1 seed in the West, and it is going to take wins in all three of these final games in all likelihood to have a shot at the No. 1 overall seed in the NBA playoffs as well. Portland has just more or less been playing out the string for a month at this point, as its season fell apart just before the trade deadline and really hasn’t recovered. In this five-game skid, there have been three losses by at least 18 points. This will be another one to add to the bunch.

NBA Pick: San Antonio -13.5
