7pm - Boston at Charlotte -3.5 O/U 195.5 Best Line Here
The Celtics have won just 2 of their last 7 as they try to remain in the playoff hunt. The Hornets have won just 2 of 8 as they also have playoff dreams. Charlotte won Saturday, even if it was against a depleted Atlanta roster, so I like them to carry that momentum on their home court again tonight.
Charlotte 97 Boston 91
7pm - L.A. Lakers at Philadelphia -4.5 O/U 192.5 Best Line Here
The Lakers are 1-3 on their current roadie. The Sixers have dropped 4 of their last 5 games. L.A. beat Philly at home 101-87 just a week ago. I expect the Sixers, who are 23-14 ATS at home to return the favor tonight.
Philadelphia 101 L.A. Lakers 94
7:30pm - Milwaukee at Atlanta -8.5 O/U 194 Best Line Here
The Bucks are 2-2 on their current home stand as they try to solidify their playoff spot. The Hawks have dropped 4 of 6 and now that they've locked up the top Eastern playoff seed who knows which starters coach Budenholzer will rest on any given night. No sense risking $ on Atlanta these last couple of weeks.
Milwaukee 97 Atlanta 95
7:30pm - Houston at Toronto -1.5 O/U 207.5 Best Line Here
The Rockets won at Washington last night for their 4th straight win and 7th of their last 8. The Raptors beat the Lakers on Friday for just their 2nd win in 5 tries. Hard to back Toronto until they get Lowry back, which probably won't be tonight.
Houston 108 Toronto 102
8pm - Sacramento at Memphis -10.5 O/U 198 Best Line Here
The Kings lost at New Orleans on Friday after 4 straight wins. The Grizzlies have lost three straight against perhaps the top 3 NBA teams. I look for Memphis to get back on track in this home contest vs. a Sacramento squad that is just 10-25 on the road.
Memphis 101 Sacramento 89
8pm - Utah -7.5 at Minnesota O/U 186 Best Line Here
The Jazz beat the Thunder on Saturday to stop a 4 game skid. The Timberwolves have lost 3 straight with their last victory being a 106-104 OT affair in Utah last Monday. I see another close game so I can't back the Jazz as road favorites.
Minnesota 96 Utah 95
10pm - Phoenix at Portland -8.5 O/U 199 Best Line Here
The Suns have lost 3 in a row after a 4 game win streak. The Blazers have won 3 straight after a 5 game slide. Portland is the team gelling for the postseason and should take care of things at home tonight.
Portland 105 Phoenix 90
