16 Jan 20:00 Charlotte Hornets v Boston Celtics
This Celtics team is far too superior to the Hornets, they will win this game. There was a period when the Boston Celtics were struggling, but now that isn’t the issue anymore, and players like Robert Williams back have had a say in their current form. The Hornets would have to score over 120 points to try and beat the Celtics but they have lost to them 6 times in their last 6. This Celtics team has better defense and offense, the Hornets have lost their last 4 and after this, it will be 5.
16 Jan 21:30 Milwaukee Bucks v Indiana Pacers
Gianni’s status for this game is probable while Tyrese Haliburton remains out for the Pacers. Now with that info, you can only take the Bucks to win here comfortably. Giannis has an excellent record against the Pacers, the last time he lost to the Pacers was in 2018 but after that, the Pacers have never been a team he struggles against. The Pacers are always good underdogs but only with their main man Tyrese on the court, take the Bucks to cover here.
16 Jan 22:00 New York Knicks v Toronto Raptors
Defence is everything and right now the Knicks have a very solid defence, only allowing 110 points per game in their last 3 which has resulted in them winning their last 3. Here they host the Raptors who are allowing in 116 ppg in their last 3, they don’t have the best defense and that is why they lost their last game when they were the victors. This game is going to be close but the Knicks should win.
17 Jan 01:00 Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns
The Suns are not a team you put your money on especially against the Grizzlies who will be making it 10 wins in a row after this game. The Suns have been hit hard with injuries this season and with Devin Booker, Chris Paul, and Cameron Pyane not playing we can’t even back them as underdogs. This is going to be a blowout and take the Grizzlies to show out at the FedEx Forum.
