Bet the Toronto Raptors at BookMaker.eu
I’ve been on the Dinos’ fade train in recent weeks, but those games occurred at home where Toronto has been beatable from a pointspread perspective all season. On the road, Kawhi Leonard and company have proven to be one of the better road teams in the Eastern Conference by winning 19 of their 31 played games. With the Heat checking in as the current Southeast Division leaders, I don’t expect Toronto to be laying many points on the NBA odds. Though Miami has covered each of the L/5 in the recent rivalry, we’re coming down the home stretch and I fully expect Toronto to be up to the challenge of going into a division leaders house and handing them a loss both SU & ATS.
Bet the Indiana Pacers at BookMaker.eu
This bet ultimately hinges upon Joel Embiid being in the lineup for the Sixers. If he’s there, I’m laying the points with the Sixers. If not, it’s a no play. He’s gone for at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in all three meetings with Indiana this season, and went for 40 points and 20 rebounds the last time Indy paid a visit to the Wells Fargo Arena. Philly is 2-1 SU & ATS versus the Pacers this season, but the lone game lost just so happened to occur when these teams last met in Philly back on December 14. With this game representing the first of a three-game home stand and each team jockeying one another for the best playoff positioning, look for Philadelphia to make a loud statement in this one!
Bet the Orlando Magic at BookMaker.eu
Though Memphis had been playing better ball recently in going 3-2 SU & 4-1 ATS leading up to Friday’s home tilt with the Utah Jazz, I’ll be backing the visiting Magic on Sunday night. Orlando currently sits a game out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture and a game in back of the Miami Heat for the Southeast Division lead. Should Miami go down in defeat against Toronto earlier in the day, I can’t help but think a determined Orlando squad hits the FedExForum hardwood and ends the Grizz’ three-game win streak in the recent rivalry.
Bet the Dallas Mavericks at BookMaker.eu
Though Dallas likely has very little chance of qualifying for the playoffs sitting 9-games out entering Friday’s road trip to Orlando, I firmly expect Luka Doncic and company to make life a living hell for the visiting Rockets. This series sits 2-1 in Dallas’ favor, and it won the lone meeting at the American Airlines Center where the Mavs scored the 107-104 outright win and cover as 3.5-point underdogs per the closing NBA odds. Big D has been nothing short of money catching points at home in going 6-4 SU & 8-2 ATS over the L/10 instances. I’m riding that money train till the cows come home!
Bet the Milwaukee Bucks at BookMaker.eu
So just how for real is the Spurs recent resurgence? We’re about to find out Sunday night when “The Greek Freak” and his Bucks teammates storm the Alamo looking to put an end to San Antonio’s four-game win streak. Milwaukee is one of the best rebounding teams the league has to offer, and it does an excellent job holding onto the basketball with it ranked No. 10 in turnover rate. I truly think Milwaukee is the class of the Eastern Conference, and its 23-11 SU & 20-12-2 ATS records solidify that belief. San Antonio has won 25 of 32 and gone 20-12 ATS when in front of its hometown fans, but this is a test I’m willing to pay up for to see them pass.
