There are a couple of premier games in the NBA tonight. The Cavs vs. Bulls, Bucks vs. Grizzlies, and Heat vs. Nets. All three of these games will be good games to watch, and if you get to take your eyes off March Madness this weekend, these are the games that should be on TV. These six teams could all make a run in the playoffs, and it will be a good idea for bettors to keep an eye on them for playoff betting. Let us look into tonight’s games to find the best bets.
Indiana Pacers +11 -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook
The Pacers have not lost by more than 11 points to anyone not named the Grizzlies since February 28th. They have been playing games close. Even without Duarte, they should be able to keep this game close. The Raptors are a good team, but 11 is a good amount of points in the NBA. This game is late in the season when teams need rest and start limiting minutes. The Pacers have enough talent to stay within 11 points, but they need to come out ready to play.
Oklahoma City Thunder +15 -130 at Draftkings Sportsbook
The line is too large in this game. The Nuggets could cover 15 points, but they are not doing it consistently enough to take it in this matchup. The Thunder are 3-0 ATS (with two outright wins) against the Denver Nuggets this year. That means the moneyline could be a sneaky betting play too, but the 15 points are the safer play. The underdog covering the double-digit spread is the more consistent play this year in the NBA. The Thunder are a good play tonight with that large spread.
Milwaukee Bucks Moneyline -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook
The Memphis Grizzlies are a great team this year. They can win games without Ja Morant and have proven that since his absence. The Bucks are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now, and Giannis has been able to do whatever he wants on offense. With Giannis playing well and Morant sitting out, the advantage goes slightly to the Bucks in this game. This matchup has betting value since it is a pick. Take the betting value in this matchup while it last.
