We have an 11 game slate for Monday the 28th of October in the NBA and it will be interesting to see how a couple of sides go, who desperately need a win.
The Indiana Pacers are winless and it is over for the Golden State Warriors? A side that has been up the top for almost seven years will be heading to New Orleans to take on a winless Pelicans side.
Check out some of the best plays from last night in the NBA.
Here are some NBA Picks for October 28th 2019.
Be sure to check back each day for more Free NBA Picks and Player Props.
Indiana Pacers @ Detroit Pistons
Prediction – Indiana – 2.5
Game Total Over 212.5
The Pacers are taking a while to figure things out with a new-look lineup, but they come up against a Pistons team without Blake Griffen and Reggie Jackson.
Malcolm Brogdon has been a shining light for the Pistons so far this season and watching him go head to head with Derrick Rose will be a treat.
The Pacers should finally get a win and both sides are averaging a combined 222 in their matches so far this season, so expect the Game Total to possibly go over.
Chicago Bulls @ New York Knicks
Prediction – New York + 1.5
Game Total Under 223.5
Both these sides got thumped in their last games and we be looking to make for a better performance. New York does not have a terrible team on paper and has been in 2 out of their 3 games so far.
Chicago lost to Charlotte and narrowly beat Memphis, but have been less than impressive.
Expect the Knicks to come out firing and maybe play some defence in this game.
Philadelphia 76ers @ Atlanta Hawks
Prediction – Philadelphia – 4.5
Both these sides come into this game undefeated and Trae Young from the Hawks has been awesome so far. Can he take it up to the 76ers on his home court and get some help from his teammates?
Joel Embiid from the sixers is likely to miss this game which brings the Hawks into it, but the 76ers should win this match.
Orlando Magic @ Toronto Raptors
Prediction – Orlando + 4.5
Game Total Under 213.5
The Magic did beat the Raptors in Game One of their finals series last season and they will come into this game with some confidence.
Toronto is coming off an easy win to the Bulls and Orlando lost against the Hawks and will be looking to make up for it.
Both sides have a combined Head to Head Game Total Average of 198 over their last 5 Games, so expect the Game Total to go under.
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets
Prediction – Oklahoma + 10.5
Game Total Under 226.5
Chris Paul will travel to Houston to take on James Harden and his old side. Revenge games do exist and this may be one of them, after the Thunder made easy work of the Warriors last night.
The Rockets seem to be taking a while to adjust having both Harden and Westbrook on the same team. Expect Paul and the Thunder to have a real crack here and the Game Total to go under the number.
Cleveland Cavs @ Milwaukee Bucks
Prediction – Milwaukee – 14.5
Game Total Over 222.5
Cleveland may have won their last game, but the Bucks are coming off a loss and were one of the best teams coming off a loss last season.
The Bucks should win this game easily and the Game Total should go over the number.
Golden State Warriors @ New Orleans Pelicans
Prediction – New Orleans – 1.5
Stay away from this game because it’s too hard to predict what might happen. Will the Pelicans young brigade want to smash the Warriors and can Steph Curry and Draymond finally get something going with a new look team?
It’s a stay-away game, but the Pelicans will back themselves in to win. Watch out if Curry and Russell start hitting shots.
Portland Trail Blazers @ San Antonio Spurs
Prediction – Portland + 5.5
The Home side generally wins when these two go at it and the Spurs are always solid at home. They have been putting up big numbers this season so the Game Total may go over the number. The Blazers will be tough and their +5.5 head start may be the go.
Utah Jazz @ Phoenix Suns
Prediction – Utah – 4.5
Game Total Under 217.5
The Suns have been good this season and defeated the Clippers the other night. They come up against a solid Jazz team and it will be tough for the Suns if Rubio doesn’t suit up.
The Jazz is the safe pick here and may blow the game out.
Denver Nuggets @ Sacramento Kings
Prediction – Denver – 6.5
Game Total Over 218.5
Marvin Bagley is out for the next 6 weeks for the Kings and they have struggled to start the season. The Nuggets should have no problems here and containing the Kings shooters will be the only issue.
Denver to win in a high scoring contest.
Charlotte Hornets @ Los Angeles Clippers
Prediction – Los Angles Clippers – 14.5
Game Total Over 226.5
The Clippers are coming off a loss and there is nobody better in the NBA than Kawhi Leonard after losing a game. They will crank up the defence early and the game could be over by half time. Clippers to win in a high scoring game.
