We start the week off with a seven-game slate in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets are in action again so that means another chance for them to cover an easy spread. Kyrie Irving was held out over the weekend in the Nets’ first loss after winning eight straight. There are also a few big injury spots in the Indiana Pacers-Philadelphia 76ers game. Tobias Harris is dealing with a knee bruise and Malcolm Brogdon also has a knee injury. Both players are questionable and would alter how we approach things in betting and DFS.
Let’s take a look at lineups for Monday night.
