Game 1: Atlanta Hawks @ Dallas Mavericks (-6.5, -110), 8:30 p.m. EST

The Mavericks are one of the best home teams in the NBA, with a 12-2 record. They're also playing some of their best basketball lately, going 7-3 in their last 10. With the Hawks having a 2-11 road record, lay the points here with ease.

Game 2: Oklahoma City Thunder @ New Orleans Pelicans (+2, -115), 8 p.m. EST

This and the next game are two lines that just look weird when you see them at first glance. OKC has been one of the hottest teams in the NBA over the past few weeks, while New Orleans has cooled after a hot start. The Thunder only laying two points on the road is Vegas giving us a sign that is a classic trap game. The Pelicans are dominant at home, owners of a 10-4 record. Take Anthony Davis and the points in the first of our two odd lines of the night. 

Game 3: Milwaukee Bucks @ Indiana Pacers (+100), 7 p.m. EST

In our second weird line of the night, one of the NBA's best teams, the Milwaukee Bucks visit their division-rival Indiana Pacers. Star player Victor Oladipo is back in the Pacers lineup and they're getting points at home. The Pacers are 9-4 at home and some of those games were without Oladipo. Even with Oladipo back in the fold, you would expect the line to be a little higher, but like we said, it's the bookmaker's way of sending a subtle message. This game is closer than the public thinks, and many will jump on the Bucks without a second thought at this low number, but the Pacers are the play here.
