09 Mar 02:30 Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

This is going to be a slow game and only one bet I’m taking here and that is the under. The line is set really low here which makes you think it’s easily attainable when it’s actually the opposite. The Cavs are bottom in the league when it comes to pace, while Miami is third from the bottom. Both teams are focused on defending they are not fast, explosive, or entertaining. These are also the best defenses in the league with the Cavs allowing only 106.6 ppg and the Heat only allowing 109.1. I’m taking the under for this game

Suggested Bet: Under 218

09 Mar 04:00 Denver Nuggets v Chicago Bulls

The Nuggets are arguably the best offensive team in the league, they are young, fun to watch, and love to score. The Denver Nuggets are top 5 in 3+ offensive statistical categories. If this year you bet against the Denver Nuggets when they were playing at home, you’d have only won one bet. I trust the front-runner for the MVP to continue delivering his performances and leading his team to a home win here,

Suggested Bet: Denver Nuggets ML

09 Mar 04:00 Phoenix Suns v Oklahoma City Thunder

This is not a game too much to think about regarding the outcome because the Suns will win this game, the only worry is by how much. OKC will be short-handed for this game, their star player Shai is being rested as this is a back-to-back game for OKC. Jalen Williams is also out for this game with a wrist injury. The Suns are playing wonderful basketball right now, having won their last 3 covering the spread in all 3. The Spread might be big here but they are at home and I see them winning comfortably.

Suggested Bet: Phoenix Suns -8.5
