NBA Three at 3: Best Bets for Monday, February 28

After going 2-1 on Friday, we're looking to feed you some more winners to start the week. Tonight's slate is headlined by a meeting between the Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks, but we're also tackling two other games. Check out our best bets below: 

1. Sacramento Kings at Oklahoma City Thunder - 8:00 p.m. ET

While the Kings are probably a better team than the Thunder right now, Oklahoma City has the second-best ATS record in the league at 38-20-2. The Thunder are also 16-4 against the spread when facing teams that force 13.0 or fewer turnovers per game this season, and they have only lost those contests by 0.6 points per game. With that in mind, you should expect this game to be competitive until the final buzzer. The Thunder actually match up quite well with the Kings, as they arguably have a better backcourt. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Tre Mann should be able to hold their own against De'Aaron Fox and Davion Mitchell in this one, and that would mean that the Thunder just have to find a way to contain Domantas Sabonis in the paint. Oklahoma City is also 15-6 against the spread when revenging a road loss against an opponent this year. 

THE PICK: Thunder +5.5 

2. San Antonio Spurs at Memphis Grizzlies - 8:00 p.m. ET

The Spurs are 15-4 against the spread in road games against division opponents over the last three seasons, and San Antonio has won those games by an average of 3.2 points per game. The Spurs are also 41-26 against the spread on the road over the last two seasons, which shows that this team just isn't intimidated when playing away from home. While San Antonio might not be winning games at the same rate as we're used to, the Spurs are a talented group this year. Dejounte Murray, Lonnie Walker and Devin Vassell make up a very good young backcourt in San Antonio, and those three should be able to match the production of Memphis' guards. Murray might not be as well known as Ja Morant, but the Spurs guard is having an absurd season. He's a triple-double threat every single night. The Spurs also have Keldon Johnson and Jakob Poeltl in the frontcourt, which gives the team a versatile forward and one of the best interior defenders in basketball. The Spurs might not win this game, but it's hard to blow this group out. San Antonio should be able to keep this one close. 

THE PICK: Spurs +8.5 

3. Charlotte Hornets at Milwaukee Bucks - 8:00 p.m. ET

The Hornets have been able to compete with the Bucks all year, as they are 2-1 straight-up and 3-0 against the spread in their three meetings with them this season. Charlotte lost by two the last time these teams met at Fiserv Forum, so it's not like the road atmosphere will shake this young group. The Hornets might not be able to keep things as tight as they did last time they played here, but it's definitely reasonable to ask them not to lose by double digits. This Charlotte team is going to enjoy a challenge like this one, and you can expect the very best from LaMelo Ball and Co. here — although the team is really missing Gordon Hayward right now. Since taking over as the head coach of the Bucks, Mike Budenholzer's team is is 7-18 against the spread when coming off three games in a row in which it scored 120 or more points. Charlotte is also 32-18 against the spread when coming off losses in two of its last three games since the start of last season. 

THE PICK: Hornets +10.5
