28 Feb 02:00 Charlotte Hornets v Detroit Pistons

This Hornets team seems to have found some swagger recently and Lamelo Ball has led them to 4 consecutive wins. The Pistons are basically tanking at this point, winning does nothing for them because they are still going to end the season at the bottom. Now losing this game does more for the Pistons, both sides have horrible defenses and the spread may be a risk but take the money line as your primary bet and overs for a secondary bet.

Suggested Bet: Charlotte Hornets ML/Over 230

28 Feb 02:00 Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

Jimmy Butler came out in an interview saying that he’s tired of losing, that’s after the Heat had lost to the Hornets making it 4 losses in a row. Now Miami is the 7th seed in the East but they are at the bottom in the entire league when it comes to scoring, they only average 108.1 points per game. James Harden is leading in assists while Joel Embiid is second in scoring, I’m taking the 76ers to win this game.  

Suggested Bet: Philadelphia 76ers ML/Under 223

28 Feb 02:30 New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

One thing about the Knicks is that they can cover the spread, in their last 5 wins,2 of those wins were underdogs. Now Boston’s last 2 games on the road the scoreline was close and I see the same here. Rebounding is a very important factor to take into consideration here because all the teams the Knicks have beaten on their streak, they out-rebounded them. The Knicks are third in the league when it comes to rebounding, all the forced shots Boston will take, the Knicks will capitalise on that. This will either be a 6th win for the 6th seed or they simply keep the game close.

Suggested Bet: New York Knicks +8.5
