O'Sullivan's Sunday NBA Picks: Pelicans at Spurs, Timberwolves at Trail Blazers, Magic at Lakers

New Orleans Pelicans at San Antonio Spurs, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: San Antonio -2.5 (-110), bet $11 to win $10

San Antonio got smacked by Denver just last night and I’m still taking them tonight. Why? New Orleans is 4-11 on the road this season, 5-10 against the spread away. The Spurs are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games. New Orleans is 26th in scoring offense and 23rd in scoring defense. Both teams have been losing lately, but San Antonio has been losing to better teams. They handle things at home tonight.

Minnesota Timberwolves at Portland Trail Blazers, 9 pm Eastern

The Pick: Portland -0.5 (-110), bet $11 to win $10

Both teams are 11-15 right now, and both are kind of a mess. But Portland is still a solid 10-4 at home and a respectable 8-6 at home ATS. Even without Damian Lillard, that’s solid enough for me to take them against a Minnesota team that’s going on the road after a week in their own gym.

Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Lakers, 9:30 pm Eastern

The Pick: Orlando +11 (-110), bet $11 to win $10

Orlando was cruel enough to fight the Clippers hard last night and cost me a teaser, but this is not a response to that. It’s more about the Lakers' malaise and nagging injuries, not to mention that it’s 11 points I’m getting. The Magic are 4-2 against the spread in their last six games, and 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight against the Lakers. I think Los Angeles isn’t quite right, and even though they win tonight, they coast and allow the Magic to cover the double-digit spread.
