Tuesday night in the NBA is bringing us a lot of action, as several playoff teams are looking to improve their positions as the season enters its home phase.
Here are some of my favorite NBA predictions for Tuesday night, with all odds via WynnBET:
While both of these teams are struggling at the end of the year, Charlotte is significantly better than the spread for the year, hitting 35-28-2 ATS against the Nets’ worst record of 24-39-2 .
As great as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are, the roster around them still needs some work until Ben Simmons can make his debut with the team.
Brooklyn fell short by 5 points to the Boston Celtics, so I’m not sure I love the Nets as a 4-point favorite here.
While the Hornets are only 20th in the league in defensive ratings during the off-season, they have fared much better towards the end of the season, finishing fifth in the league in their last 15 games.
That’s huge against a struggling Nets team defensively (23rd in defensive rating), and it should give Charlotte some headroom for Durant to still have a big game.
The Hornets are 10-6-1 against the spread as the underdog home team this season, and I think they will cover it again on Tuesday.
Lean: Hornets +4 (-110)
Find Peter Dewey’s entire NBA betting record this season this.
Orlando is leading 3-2 since the All-Star break, but it was blown away by the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday after beating several underdogs in the league.
Orlando has really struggled as an underdog at home this season, winning only 6-19 by margin, which is the worst mark in the NBA besides a 0-1 record. by Suns.
Even without Booker and Paul, Phoenix struggled with the Bucks on Sunday, and Cameron Payne, Deandre Ayton and Jae Crowder all had big games. A repeat performance can be tough, but Orlando is one of the worst offensive teams in the NBA (29th in offensive rating), so the Suns could win a game by low difference. than.
I will rely on Phoenixas the Magic struggled with promotion, but this is not the team we’ve been betting on all season when healthy.
Lean: Suns -6 (-110)
The Thunder have played solidly as the underdogs this season, 15-11-4 to odds, but I think this is a night to fade them.
OKC struggled in a few games against Lu Dort, Josh Giddey, Ty Jerome and others, and I don’t think Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be able to take down the defensive champions.
Milwaukee is about to have a big win over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, and it’s an incredible gap from the No. 2 seed in the East. The Bucks simply outmatched the shrewd Thunder talent on this game, and we’ve seen OKC blown away on nights because it’s the worst offense the league simply can’t keep up with.
I’ll lean on Milwaukee herebut I’ll also keep an eye on SGA’s scores, as he’s been the money since the All-Star break, scoring 29 or more in six straight games.
Lean: Bucks -13.5 (-110)
