Game 1: Over 51.5 (+100) – New Orleans Saints @ Dallas Cowboys, 8:20 p.m. EST

The Saints and Cowboys head into Thursday night's game on their own respective hot streaks, with New Orleans having won a league-best 10 straight and Dallas notching three in a row. With sharps taking the Cowboys plus 7.5 points and public going all in on the Saints, we're going to stick to the over/under here. And since there's a clear trend in Thursday night games with the total hitting the over in seven out of the last nine, we should expect lots of points again tonight.

Game 2: Indiana Pacers @ Los Angeles Lakers (-190), 10:30 p.m. EST

If you haven't heard, the Pacers will be without their best player in Victor Olapido again tonight, and any time I can bet on LeBron James playing against an under-manned team, I take that bet. With the Lakers playing at home in the Staples Center, where they've won four out of their last five, let's not worry about the 5.5-point spread and just take the Lakers to win outright.
