Get free picks on how to wager against the spread or on the money live for the top NBA games. If you’re new to NBA betting, check out the notes below to understand how to read these picks when betting against the spread:

  • BLUE boxes: Indicate which team the free NBA pick is recommending for selection
  • RED boxes:
    • Indicate the minimum margin of victory for the selected team (if favored, “-” symbol is used)
    • Indicate the maximum margin of defeat for the selected team (if underdog, “+” symbol is used)

For expert NBA picks where the money line is involved (picking one team or the other to win straight-up – no point spread needed), reference the following guide:

  • BLUE boxes: Indicate which team the free NBA pick is recommending for selection
  • RED box: Indicates that this is a “money line” (ML) bet, meaning that you are wagering on the team selected simply to win, without any point spread attached.
  • GREEN box: Indicates the current predicted margin of victory for the favored team (Charlotte by 3 points in this instance)
