19 Jan 22:00 Detroit Pistons v Chicago Bulls
The Pistons sit bottom of the East and are likely to end the season there, The Bulls are not having a great season but at least they are in a play-in position. At the center of every Piston win, is a great display from Bogdanovic, now he might be out for this game and I have to take the Bulls in that case. The Bulls played excellent basketball beating the Champions as underdogs without Demar DeRozan. The Bulls have been dominating the Pistons since 2019 and I see the streak continuing here.
20 Jan 03:00 Minnesota Timberwolves v Toronto Raptors
Minnesota here is playing back-to-back and after the game at Denver, they will be really tired heading into this game. The Raptors have had enough rest and I am backing them here. What would make me take Minnesota is if the wolves were playing either Kat or Rudy Gobert, the Raptors are not the best when it comes to perimeter offense. But both Rudy and Kat are out, I’m taking the Raptors to get a win here, making it 4 in a row against Minnesota.
20 Jan 05:00 Portland Trail Blazers v Philadelphia 76ers
Philly is 100% healthy and have all their players available, they know they can be second in the East soon. Portland is known for their 3-point shooting but right now they are not even better than the Sixers. The Sixers this season have a 3-point shooting percentage of 38% while the Blazers are on 37.2%. The Sixers lead the Blazers in almost every statistical category. This game should be close but I am taking the Sixers to win.
