Kentavious Caldwell-Pope over 1.5 threes (-149) at CHA – BetMGM (1:59 PM CT)
Over the past 10 games, Caldwell-Pope is averaging 2.4 made threes per game, and he's made at least two three-pointers in every game this month. The Hornets allow the second-most made triples per game (14.8), so KCP should have no problem hitting the over.
Celtics to win (+102) at POR – FanDuel (11:04 AM CT)
The Trail Blazers are struggling. They've won only two of their last five, and those two victories were against Detroit and OKC. Newly acquired Norman Powell is playing well, but Portland still has depth problems, and Jusuf Nurkic is struggling in his return from a knee injury. Boston is (finally) playing well, having won five of their last six, aided by the shift of Robert "Time Lord" Williams to the starting unit. Williams' rim protection and skilled passing have provided a boost and coincided with hot play from Jayson Tatum (29.4 points, 49.5 FG% over last 10 games).
