Professional sports handicapper Ross Benjamin likes 3 totals on Monday’s card. Go inside to read what those picks are and why he’s chosen them.

Detroit Pistons @ Brooklyn Nets
Game# 525-526

The NBA odds at Bookmaker are currently showing a total of 223.0 on this Pistons and Nets Eastern Conference game.

Detroit Brooklyn free playDetroit has gone under in their last 6 games as a road underdog and when the total was 212.0 or greater. The average total in those contests was 218.3 and there were just 205.2 points scored per game.

Monday will be the Pistons 3rd game in 4 days. Detroit is 8-1 under this season when cast into that precise role and with only a collective 205.9 points scored per game.

Brooklyn has gone under the total in each of their previous 4 contests. The average total in those outings was 226.4 and there were 216.5 points scored per game. The Nets have scored 113 points or more in each of their last 3 played. They’re 13-4 under this season which includes 5-1 during their previous 6 games after scoring 110 or greater on 2 consecutive occasions.
Pick: Under 223.0

Charlotte Hornets @ Houston Rockets
Game# 527-528

The betting odds at 5Dimes is displaying a total of 224.0 on Monday night’s Hornets and Rockets contest.

Houston Rockets Free PickThese teams met once this season and Houston was a 118-113 winner at Charlotte on 2/27. The Hornets are 8-1 to the under this season when playing with revenge stemming from a home loss. Those 9 contests manufactured a combined 210.6 points scored per game.

Houston has observed their previous 4 games all going under the total. During that stretch, the Rockets allowed a mere 95.8 points per outing while limiting their opponents to a collective 41.7% shooting and horrible 24.6% three-point conversion rate.
Pick: Under 224.0

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Utah Jazz
Game# 529-530

Presently, BetOnline has the Thunder as a 3.5-point underdog and there’s a total of 226.5.

OKC pickOklahoma City is 12-3 under the total this season as an underdog. They’ve also gone under in 9 of their last 13 games overall.

Utah has observed 5 of their previous 6 games going under when there was a total of 225.0 or greater.
The Jazz are coming off a 114-104 loss at Memphis in their last game. That contest easily went over the total of 207.0. Utah has gone over in 4 of its last 5 following an over in their previous appearance.

Relative to the current total, this one points directly toward a low scoring game. One of my NBA totals picks on Friday 3/11 will concur with that assessment.
Pick: Under 226.5
