If you look at the Vegas lines for Monday’s nine-game NBA slate, you will see the potential for a lot of high-scoring blowouts. There are seven games with a Vegas total over 220 points and also five games with a favorite of at least nine points. If not too worried about players getting reduced minutes in a blowout so early in the season, except for maybe the Warriors who are playing in the second game of a back-to-back and their third game in the last four days.
The grid below is a snapshot of today’s slate that shows the overall rating for each position for each team. The numbers highlighted in red are the positions that are in the top 25% of their position for the slate and indicate good plays. Meanwhile, the numbers highlighted in blue are the positions that are in the bottom 25% of their respective position for the slate and are positions to avoid.
