NBA Basketball has revved up over the last few weeks, and most teams from each conferences are playing at a high level. The Eastern Conference has greatly improved this season. New teams like the Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Hornets, and Milwaukee Bucks are have tremendous seasons so far. The West is still stacked. Even with LeBron James on the Lakers, it seems like it more of a challenge between all 15 teams in the Conference. Thursday night has 2 great match-ups, and I want to show you what I think from a gambling prospective.
Here are my FLAGRANT FOUL Picks for today in the NBA.

Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors: The Golden State Warriors begin their 5 game, East Coast road trip in Toronto tonight, and it could not be at a worse time. The Raptors are playing inspired basketball right now, and our in first place in the East. Kawhi Leonard is performing at an MVP level, and it is almost impossible to win up north in Jurassic Park. The Warriors are coming in on a 2 game winning streak, and it seems like they are past their internal drama. Unfortunately for Golden State, they will not have Steph Curry and Draymond Green again for this game. This is a bad spot for the Warriors, but from a gambling perspective I find value in them tonight. The point spread is set at Toronto -9.5. Even though I inevitably see the Raptors winning the game, I think it will be closer than Vegas predicts. Take the +9.5 with the Warriors

Los Angeles Clippers vs Sacramento Kings:
The Thursday night, NBA
TNT double header consists of teams most people didn’t care too much at the beginning of the season for. Their are no stars or household names on either team, yet both teams are making a strong playoff push right now. This should be a very competitive game, as well as entertaining. Despite the Clippers being in first place of the Western Conference, I’m leaning toward taking the Sacramento Kings in this spot. I think the youthful play from De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III will play a big role in this game, and the home team will be victorious. Anticipate a high scoring game, but in the end the Kings come out on top. Take the Kings +2.5
