Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls

The Game: Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls, 10 p.m. ET

Milwaukee Bucks-4 (-108)-170O 221.5 (-110)
Chicago Bulls+4 (-112)+150U 221.5 (-110)

Pick: Milwaukee Bucks ATS -4

One night the Chicago Bulls are losing by double digits to the Detroit Pistons, and then the next they're beating the second-best team in the Eastern Conference in double overtime. Please make it make sense.

That's what makes betting on Bulls games so frustrating. They're capable of covering the four-point spread laid out before them against the Milwaukee Bucks, having gone 6-3 ATS in their last nine games while also having taken Milwaukee to overtime on two separate occasions already this season. 

The Bucks are in the midst of a four-game winning streak SU, though, with the last three wins coming by an average margin of victory of 23.6 points. Chicago could be in trouble here.

Indiana Pacers vs. New Orleans Pelicans

The Game: Indiana Pacers vs. New Orleans Pelicans, 8 p.m. ET

Indiana Pacers+5 (-108)+176O 239 (-112)
New Orleans Pelicans-5 (-112)-210U 239 (-108)

Pick: Indiana Pacers ML

The New Orleans Pelicans have a chance here to return the favor after the Indiana Pacers held down their home court on Wednesday with a 123-114 victory at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

While the Pacers have won three of their last four games SU, the Pelicans have actually dropped three of their last four to lose traction in the competitive Western Conference, now holding onto dear life as the sixth seed with just half a game keeping them out of the play-in tournament.

New Orleans needs this game more, but Indiana is the hotter team and knows it can beat the Pelicans even if their stars (Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, and CJ McCollum combined for 76 points on Wednesday) have big box scores.

Golden State Warriors Vs. Toronto Raptors

The Game: Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors, 7:30 p.m. ET

Golden State Warriors-2.5 (-108)-134O 235.5 (-110)
Toronto Raptors+2.5 (-112)+116U 235.5 (-110)

Pick: UNDER 235.5 Total Points

Mechanical issues on the Golden State Warriors' flight in from New York after beating the Knicks on Thursday could cost them dearly against a Toronto Raptors squad that's 3-1 since the All-Star break. 

Their plane didn't arrive north of the border until 7:15 in the morning, according to Sportsnet's Michael Grange, so to say the Warriors won't be fully rested would be an understatement. 

Surprisingly enough, this would mark Stephen Curry's first game in Toronto since Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals because of injuries and the COVID-19 pandemic. Fun facts aside, Golden State has gone UNDER in each of its last five games, with that streak likely to continue at Scotiabank Arena against a Raptors offense that seesaws back and forth between hot and cold far too often.
