Free NBA Picks Thursday 1/23/2020 and Opening Line Report
Thursday's NBA slate features three games with two exciting matchups. In
the first game of the TNT two-game slate, LeBron James will take on Kyrie
Irving. Once teammates, this should be an interesting matchup between
Lebron and Kyrie, who have switched teams since joining forces together in
Cleveland. After that, TNT will feature Dame Lillard vs Luka Doncic.
Lillard is fresh off his MLK performance, while Doncic is in the running
for MVP. Here are the early leans.
Wizards @ Cavaliers (-1, 232.5)
I'm pretty sure Cleveland just gave up on the season. The Cavs are on a
five-game losing streak and just lost by 20 to the Knicks at home. The
Wizards aren't that much better than Cleveland, but those young guys
compete a little harder than the Cavs are. The Cavs won't be able to stick
with the high scoring, fast paced Wizards and their offense. Take the
Wizards in this one.
Key trends: Cavaliers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games.
Early lean: Wizards, Over
Lakers @ Nets (TBD, TBD)
Kyrie and LeBron. Just like the good old days. Kyrie Irving is a mess with the media right now, while LeBron is the king of the media. Just like how it's always been. Big brother LeBron James will show Kyrie Irving why Kyrie should miss playing with LeBron James. Sure, Kyrie has Durant, but not yet at least. To be fair, Kyrie is injured with a hamstring injury, but it would be very suspect if he sat out this one.
Key trends: Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
Early lean: Lakers, Under

Mavericks @ Trail Blazers (TBD, TBD)
If CJ McCullum is out with an ankle injury beyond Monday, Lillard might
have to drop 75 to keep up with Luka Doncic. It'll be some battle between
the two players, but let's just face reality. The Mavericks are much deeper
than the Blazers, who have a ton of injuries and have not played up to
potential this season. Take the Mavericks in the second game of the TNT
double-header. It'll be a fun one, nonetheless.
Key trends: Mavericks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.
Early lean: Mavericks, Over
