NBA Betting: Warriors Should Score Plenty Monday Night

Monday nightThe federation gives us a nine-game list highlighted by the MVP candidates' potential clash as the Denver Nuggets take on the Philadelphia 76ers. I decided to forgo finding out which Philadelphia team will show up with much more valuable betting options on board. The Timberwolves are looking to finish in the top-6 to avoid the play-in tournament while the Spurs battle to enter. Minnesota pulled off a huge road win in Miami for their seventh win in eight games. The Timberwolves are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and come up as home dogs against a Spurs team that is 6-12 this season. They're going to need strong defensive performance to cover that number on the road, and Minnesota have the answers on that end of the floor. They are the top 10 in defensive standings for the season and No. 1 in their last five games. Minnesota is one of the few teams that can walk on the ground with San Antonio, and I'm willing to bet those extra possessions will see them cover that stretch with another impressive road performance. Stephen Curry and the Warriors were expected to earn points on the NBA roster on Monday. They are 4-1 to over and have the seventh best offensive rating during this stretch. They face a Warriors team in a three-game heat that includes crucial victories over the Nuggets and defending champion Bucks. Klay Thompson has a season-high 38 points and should be enjoying Washington's defense. Saturday night's nine-point loss to a pathetic Portland team was a strong sign that the Wizards are already thinking about returning home. I'm willing to bet they won't put up a huge fight defensively on the fourth leg of their road trip in the Golden State. Washington's last five games have an average point total of 237.4, and I could see this game going just as high. The Sacramento Kings watch as their chances of qualifying for the play-in slowly diminish with each loss. Despite having five losses from the 10th set, point guard De'Aaron Fox has done everything in his power to keep this team competitive. Fox has 40+ points in two of his last four games while averaging 30 points in his last 10 games. Fox is allowed to go Monday night on a Chicago defense that has allowed 122.5 points per 100 possessions in the past five road contests. Alex Caruso gives Chicago a defensive upgrade at the perimeter, but Fox will use his explosiveness to get to the paint and stack buckets. When those two teams played last month, Fox seared Chicago for 33 while the Kings narrowed at 125-118.
