Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Friday, January 26, 2018, 8:00 pm ET


The Bucks on/off numbers are insane with and without Giannis Antetokounmpo. They are 15.1 points per 100 possessions better with Giannis on the court, and coming off of his two game rest, the Greek Freak will be fired up for this one. The Bucks in convincingly. Lay the points.

Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Pelicans
Friday, January 26, 2018, 8:00 pm ET


The Rockets are finally back to full health, and Vegas seems to have forgotten just how good they are when Chris Paul and James Harden are both healthy. They have enough big bodies to throw at DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis to slow them down, and that will be the deciding factor in this one. Look for Houston to take this game on the road. Lay the points.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. San Antonio Spurs
Friday, January 26, 2018, 8:30 pm ET


Philly has won eight of 10, but the spot favors San Antonio. The Spurs are opening a five-game homestand with Kyle Anderson and Pau Gasol playing at a high level. Take San Antonio to cover for the seventh time in its last eight home games.
