SGG PICKS OF THE DAY, NOV. 19

Nathan Hursh

Pacers at Hornets over 213.5 (-110 FD)
So far this season, the Charlotte Hornets have done two things well. They have scored a ton of points. They have allowed a ton of points too. On the other hand, the Pacers have not scored or allowed a lot of points this season. In this game though, with the Hornets at home, points will be scored. I like the Hornets’ firepower over the Pacers’ defense. I also like the Pacers’ lackluster offense to pile up a lot of points against a Hornets team that has zero interest in playing defense. Take the over.

Draft Kings NBA Promotion

Nets -12.5 over Magic (-110 FD)
The Nets are great and at home. The Magic are terrible and on the road. Yes, 12.5 points is a lot. That said, the Magic pulled off their upset of the week in their last game at the Knicks. They will not pull off two miracle upsets in a row. The Nets will roll in this game. I would not be surprised to see them win by 25 plus.

Bulls at Nuggets under 210.5 (-110 FD)
Simply put, both of these teams have been playing tremendous defense to start the season. Denver is allowing the fewest points per game among all NBA teams so far this season (99.2). Chicago is not far behind allowing the sixth-fewest points per game (103.3). Offensively, these teams are not among the elites at the top either. Chicago is scoring the 11th most points per game (108.5) while Denver is down at 24th (102.6). With Denver at home, I believe it will be even harder for Chicago to score. If neither team reaches 100 in this game, do not be surprised.
