The NBA week started off with a bang, as 28 teams took the floor Monday for Martin Luther King Day. Following Tuesday's one-game slate, we're back with 10 contests to choose from Wednesday.

Here are the prime betting angles to keep tabs on this evening:

Oklahoma City Thunder at Orlando Magic (-1.5, 209)

Getting points as a road underdog? The Thunder check all the boxes here. Oklahoma City is on a red-hot 10-1 run ATS in this spot, as well as 17-5 ATS in its last 22 on the road overall. The first-half total could be another good look: OKC is 19-6 to the under when getting points this season and faces the Magic, who are second in the league in points allowed during the first half.

Trend plays: Thunder +1.5, 1H under 108

Denver Nuggets at Houston Rockets (-8.5, 230)

How much real estate does the Southwest Division own in Denver's head? The Nuggets are riding a dreadful 2-13 ATS streak in the first half against these opponents and have another on deck Wednesday in the Rockets. Considering the Nuggets are playing their fifth game in seven days and Houston's in a show-me spot, don't be surprised if that trend moves to 2-14.

Trend play: Rockets 1H -5

Memphis Grizzlies at Boston Celtics (-7, 232)

The Grizzlies' offense is soaring up the charts, currently tied for ninth in the NBA in points per game at 113.6. Over the last three games, Memphis has posted 116.7. The situation Wednesday against the Celtics might call for another track meet, as Memphis is 9-2 to the over in its last 11 as a 'dog, 4-0 when getting points on the road, and 14-4-1 in its last 19 overall. Meanwhile, Boston is 5-1 to the over in its last six at home and 5-1 when playing on one day's rest.

Trend play: Over 232

Los Angeles Lakers at New York Knicks (+11.5, 222)

The Lakers are averaging 114 points per game this season and have posted even better numbers over their last three at 116.3. They've been more efficient on the road, averaging 114.7 points per contest in contrast to 113.4 at home. Their game against the Knicks lines up for another potential over play. L.A. is on a blazing-hot 6-0 run overall and 5-0 across its last five away from home. Six of the last seven meetings between these teams have gone over the total.

Trend play: Over 222

San Antonio Spurs at New Orleans Pelicans (-3.5, 237)

The Pelicans are the NBA's hottest team from a betting perspective, going 13-2-1 ATS in their last 16. Furthermore, they're 6-0 ATS at home, 7-1-1 following an outright win, and 7-0 on one day's rest. Meanwhile, the Spurs are 7-22 ATS following a win and 3-7-1 versus teams with losing records.

Trend play: Pelicans -3.5
