We would love for you to tail our picks, if you do so, please always remember to gamble responsibly.
Let's find some winners.

Phoenix Suns at Dallas Mavericks
Devin Booker Over 2.5 Threes (+104)
It seemed like the Suns became one of the best teams in the NBA overnight. We all remember their run to the NBA finals last season, where they were defeated by the Bucks in six games. Now, the Suns sit at 34-9, which is the best record in the NBA so far this season.
Once again, Devin Booker is the reason why the Suns are so good this season. He is currently shooting 40% from deep, which would be his career-high by a healthy margin, and he is averaging 2.7 three-pointers per game.
Over his last five games, Booker is hitting 3.4 three-pointers per game, and over his last three games, Booker is putting up 37.6 points per game on 38.7% shooting from deep. Dallas has one of the best defenses in the NBA, but Booker is playing at an insane level, and he absolutely will have the green light to let it fly from three tonight.
New Orleans Pelicans at New York Knicks
Kemba Walker Over 18.5 Points + Assists (-125)
After a month away from the team due to a knee injury, Kemba Walker returned to the lineup last night and put up 19 points on 46% shooting from the field, and 50% from deep.
It was not that long ago that Walker was out of the Knicks' rotation. In his first three games back in the lineup, Walker averaged 31.3 points per game and then recorded a triple-double the next game on Christmas Day.
The Knicks will be without Derrick Rose for another couple of weeks, and newly-acquired Cam Reddish won't be ready to go for a little while. With Julius Randle struggling on offense, the Knicks would be wise to turn to Walker for a spark on offense going forward.
Indiana Pacers at Golden State Warriors
Klay Thompson Over 2.5 Threes (-104)
It was two years in the making, but we finally get to watch Klay Thompson play basketball again. An ACL tear against the Raptors in the 2019 NBA finals knocked him out for all of the 2019-2020 season.
Thompson would end up tearing his Achilles, and he was knocked out for another year before even making his return, and he was lost for another full season.
He finally made his return to the Warriors on Jan. 9 against the Cavaliers, and it looked like business as usual for Thompson. In his five games back, Thompson is scoring 15.2 points per game, and he also is hitting 2.6 threes per game.
The Pacers do allow the fewest three-point attempts per game, but they are allowing teams to shoot 36% from three this season. Every game, Thompson is getting more and more minutes per game. He has played 22 minutes in both of their last two games, and against a poor team like Indiana might be a spot for the Warriors to let Klay loose.
Even if his minutes are still limited, Thompson is one of the best shooters of all time, and he is shooting the ball really well in his first couple of games back in over two years.
