NBA Picks from Cristian Ishoo.

Indiana Pacers vs Cleveland Cavaliers 7:30 pm ET

Indiana at -8.5 against the Cavs is too low to pass up. Seven of Cleveland’s last eight losses have come by double-digits and they have not covered the spread in their last 10 games. Cleveland is missing nine players due to injuries and outside of Collin Sexton, Jarrett Allen, and Isaac Okoro, their active roster is unimpressive. Kevin Love played Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks but will be out for injury management. Sexton clearly wants to illustrate that he can score the ball while simultaneously getting his teammates involved, but he has been inconsistent all season and against a motivated Pacers team that has sprung out of its slump, taking the points is the correct option. If Malcolm Brogdon plays tonight, expect that spread to jump at least another two points prior to game time.

PICK: Indiana Pacers -8.5… Lean Over 230.5, but not playing.

Milwaukee Bucks vs San Antonio Spurs 8:30 pm ET

The Spurs are playing their third game in four nights, and after a 20 point loss to Portland on Saturday, they have nearly played themselves out of the play-in tournament entirely. Milwaukee, however, has won eight of its last 10 and is fighting to snag the second seed in the Eastern Conference from the Brooklyn Nets. The Bucks have stepped up their defense recently and San Antonio has struggled to score consistently all season – a struggle with which the Bucks have not contended. Considering their superior depth, better shooters, and the presence of All-Star Khris Middleton and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, this game should be a runaway win for the Bucks.

PICK Bucks -7… Lean Under 233.5

Utah Jazz vs Golden State Warriors 10 pm ET

Stephen Curry is averaging 36 points in his last nine games and has hit at least six 3-pointers in his last six games. Golden State beat a fully healthy Jazz team by 12 points when the two teams last played in March. Utah is on a five-game win streak, but it doesn’t match up with the small ball lineup employed by the Warriors. If Jazz Coach Quinn Snyder is unable to get center Rudy Gobert involved offensively, the Warriors will be in a great position to win this game, provided Curry remains himself offensively. That being said, Utah’s shooting ability, even while missing Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley, is cause for concern for Warriors fans. If some of Utah’s shooters get hot, it could be a long night for the Warriors.

PICK: Warriors Moneyline. A great game for Curry and the Warriors to get a statement win.
