Boston Celtics (3-0) @ Chicago Bulls (1-2)
BOS -5.5 – A lack of size inside hasn’t deterred the Celtics from tallying three straight wins to start the season, as they’ve elected for smaller lineups in the absence of Robert Williams and Al Horford.
Williams (knee) remains out until at least December, but Horford should be back tonight.
Jayson Tatum is off to a white-hot start averaging 35 PPG on 59% shooting from the field.
Jaylen Brown’s impact on the Celtics should be acknowledged as well, as he’s also shooting over 50% and averaging 25 PPG thus far.
Boston is playing like a ticked off squad with title aspirations after falling short in the NBA Finals last season, and is primed to handle business on the road.
PICK: BOS -5.5
Utah Jazz (3-0) @ Houston Rockets (0-3)
UTA -1.5 – Despite shipping stars Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert out of town this offseason, this young and rebuilding Jazz team has come out playing great team-first basketball.
Big man Lauri Markkanen has been a major catalyst in Utah’s inspired start, and is fresh off consecutive double-doubles, where he totaled 55 points and 25 boards.
Reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Jordan Clarkson, continues to provide an offensive spark for Utah but is being relied upon as a starter this time around.
The Jazz are on a back-to-back following an OT thriller in New Orleans, but despite the short rest, are playing with a gritty confidence that should be enough to overcome the hapless Rockets.
PICK: UTA -1.5
Denver Nuggets (2-1) @ Portland Trail Blazers (3-0)
POR +5.5 – It’s been Dame Time more often than not in October, as Lillard has willed the Trail Blazers to a 3-0 start, with consecutive 41-point efforts in upsets of the Lakers and Suns.
Like the Jazz, this is another unlikely undefeated club that is riding a ton of momentum and playing with the utmost confidence. Young journeyman Jerami Grant, has also been an early bright spot in Portland, despite playing on his 4th team in 5 seasons.
The Trail Blazers clearly go as Dame goes, and they return home after a comeback win last night in Los Angeles.
Portland has a real shot to get to 4-0 tonight, and there’s underdog value on the points (+5.5) for Lillard and company.
PICK: POR +5.5
