7pm - Chicago -1 at Toronto O/U 200.5 Best Line Here
The Bulls have won 3 of 4 games. The Raptors will likely be without Lowry and lost last night at Detroit. Chicago is 3-0 vs. Toronto this season and I believe they complete the season series sweep tonight.
Chicago 105 Toronto 98
7pm - Brooklyn at Charlotte -3.5 O/U 193.5 Best Line Here
The Nets lost to Boston on Monday after winning 2 straight. The Hornets return home following a 1-4 roadie. This game is very important for both regarding nabbing the 8th playoff spot in the East. Tough one for Charlotte coming off a 5 game road trip.
Charlotte 97 Brooklyn 96
7pm - L.A. Clippers -14.5 at New York O/U 197 Best Line Here
The Clippers have won 4 straight games. The Knicks, with the NBA's worst record, have dropped 6 of 7. NY should get Shved back after missing a game, but I don't think it matters.
L.A. Clippers 110 New York 92
7pm - Atlanta -7.5 at Orlando O/U 201.5 Best Line Here
The Hawks are trying to right the ship as they have now lost three in a row, albeit against good Western conference teams. The Magic have lost 7 of 8, so this just might be the answer for Atlanta. Strong pick here for Atlanta.
Atlanta 105 Orlando 90
7pm - Indiana at Washington -3.5 O/U 193 Best Line Here
The Pacers are clinging to the last playoff spot but as losers of 6 straight they aren't doing themselves any favors. The Wizards have lost 3 in a row themselves and don't want to fall further in the standings. Washington gets back in the win column following their Western swing.
Washington 99 Indiana 94
7:30pm - Miami at Boston -5 O/U 201 Best Line Here
The Heat lost a heartbreaker last night at Miwaukee to fall to 0-2 on this roadie. The Celtics won at Brooklyn on Monday after a 3 game slide. Isaiah Thomas is expected to return for Boston and I think that will energize the C's to win and cover at home.
Boston 103 Miami 93
8pm - Cleveland -1.5 at Memphis O/U 194 Best Line Here
The Cavs have won 3 in a row and 7 of 8 as they continue to play well heading into the postseason. The Grizzlies have won 3 straight and 5 of 6 as they hold onto the 2nd spot out West. I'll take this rare opportunity on Memphis as a home dog.
Memphis 101 Cleveland 99
8pm - L.A. Lakers at Minnesota -1.5 O/U 202.5Best Line Here
The Lakers and Timberwolves come in with just 18 and 16 wins respectively. Minnesota has won 2 of 3 (both OT affairs) and have been showing some spark even as the long season winds down. I like the young 'Wolves to win this one at home.
Minnesota 104 L.A. Lakers 96
8pm - Houston -1 at New Orleans O/U 203Best Line Here
The Rockets have won 4 of 5 games. The Pelicans have lost 3 straight and 4 of 5. Howard is likely to play tonight for Houston which isn't good news for the injury plagued New Orlean's squad.
Houston 102 New Orleans 95
9pm - Philadelphia at Denver -11.5 O/U 209Best Line Here
The Sixers gave the Kings all they could handle last night before finally losing 107-106. The Nuggets come home and have had 2 days off after a 2-3 road trip. Denver has rest and altitude in their favor and should be able to take advantage against the lowlier Philly squad. The Nuggets on 3 in a row at home before their trip.
Denver 112 Philadelphia 95
9pm - Portland at Utah -3.5 O/U 182Best Line Here
The Blazers have now lost 5 straight after last night's 122-108 defeat at the hands of the Warriors. The Jazz have dropped 2 in a row after Monday's OT loss to Minnesota. Both teams will likely be missing key players, Aldridge for Portland and Hayward for Utah, but the Jazz have had a nice stretch in the second half of the season and I like them to bounce back from a pair of defeats vs the struggling Portland squad.
Utah 96 Portland 91
9:30pm - Oklahoma City at San Antonio -7.5 O/U 215Best Line Here
The Thunder have won 4 straight and 6 of 7 as Westbrook makes a case for MVP. The Spurs lost at Dallas last night after 3 straight victories. This number just seems a little high to me. At minimum, I think OKC keeps it close.
San Antonio 101 Oklahoma City 100
10pm - Sacramento at Phoenix -8 O/U 212.5Best Line Here
The Kings just held off Philly last night for their 3rd straight win. The Suns have won 4 straight and have had a couple of days off. Phoenix may get Brandon Knight back which will make this one even easier.
Phoenix 114 Sacramento 102
