Minnesota Timberwolves @ Orlando Magic picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Minnesota Timberwolves
Orlando Magic
MIN Timberwolves +7.5 Point Spread
-110
Under 236 Game Totals
-110

Against the Spread Pick

The Timberwolves are off a surprise win against the Heat. Not only was it an upset but they had to work hard to get it, coming back from down late. That is a nice result for a team with nothing to play for but too little too late. Even more impressive was that they did it without Karl-Anthony Towns, who is out until next month. This team has underperformed and is going to be a wild card down the stretch. The Magic have a decent cushion for the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. Still, they should win games like this against teams with nothing to play for, especially at home. Unfortunately, they have been a disaster at home this season, they are just 15-14 SU and that record drops to a 10-17 ATS. If you are going to have a hope in the playoffs you have to play well at home and that is why Orlando is considered a joke this season. You can fade them here but don’t go big.

Over Under Pick

Orlando always looks to suppress offense as it is their best way to stay in the game. No Towns makes the Wolves easier to guard for sure but they just dropped 129 on Miami without him, his absence makes the ball move a little more. Only 38 percent of Orlando’s home games are going over the number though which is a trend that makes a lot of sense to me. I am leaning into that one.

Charlotte Hornets @ Toronto Raptors picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Charlotte Hornets
Toronto Raptors
TOR Raptors Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Hornets could be walking into something terrible with the Raptors off a loss against the Bucks. That might have been expected in terms of the spread and such but still, this is their last home game before a road trip. I don’t like this matchup for the Hornets at all because their two key guards, Devonte’ Graham and Terry Rozier, are going to have to play against two of the better on-ball defenders in Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet. The rest of the team does not help them out a ton. The game against Milwaukee did not have the ideal outcome but they played terribly and were missing some key cogs that might have helped late. Overall they played a ‘C’ game and they got beat. This is still a championship-level team but without Kawhi Leonard the off nights are a little more off. Take Toronto here.

Over Under Pick

When I think about this one I immediately think under. The Raptors are going to smother the Hornets and they have much better depth to keep up the pressure all night long. They will get some easy scores but as they empty out the bench it will get a little ragged. This one might look like an over early on but once things settle the under is the play.

Brooklyn Nets @ Atlanta Hawks picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Brooklyn Nets
Atlanta Hawks
ATL Hawks Point Spread
Over Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

Brooklyn seems pretty locked into their current spot in the Eastern Conference. Nevertheless, getting some easy wins would not be a bad idea. Whichever team finishes strong between them and Orlando avoids Milwaukee in the first round. The Nets are looking to stop their current two-game losing streak but the road has not been kind this season, 10-18 SU with just one more ATS win. If they play well this should be an easy one. Atlanta is one of the most fun teams in the league, they just aren’t very good, yet. At some point, they might need to start bringing in some winning players or they risk being one of those teams. Trae Young has an illness here. It is too bad Kyrie Irving is not playing because that would have been a fun game of back and forth. I am going with the home side but not with a lot of confidence.

Over Under Pick

Atlanta is second last in the league in points allowed at 119ppg and just gave up 130 to Orlando, one of the worst offensive teams in the league. They can make any team look good I guess and the Nets have more than enough weapons. Young is always the key for Atlanta. Make sure before you punch the over.

Fri, Feb 28th - 8:00pm ET:
Oklahoma City Thunder @ Milwaukee Bucks picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Oklahoma City Thunder
Milwaukee Bucks
MIL Bucks Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Milwaukee Bucks face off on Friday night and the value lies with the home squad. The Thunder had a tough game on Thursday night against the Kings and now they have to go on the road to take on the Bucks. At home this season the Bucks are averaging 121.4 points per game while the Thunder are averaging only 108.4 on the road. The favorite is 9-4 against the spread in the last 13 meetings between the two teams. Back the Bucks to get the job done.

Over Under Pick

This is a total I don’t love because the Thunder are playing on the second night of a back to back. When these two teams face off, the under has been a safe play. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the two sides. Back the under to cash as a lean if you have to bet it.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ New Orleans Pelicans picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Cleveland Cavaliers
New Orleans Pelicans
NO Pelicans Point Spread
Over Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Cleveland Cavaliers and New Orleans Pelicans face off on Friday night and in this game the value lies with the home squad. The Cavaliers have won back to back games, but they are going to fall back down to earth in this game. Over the last five games, the Pelicans are averaging 121 points per game and the Cavaliers aren’t going to have enough to keep this game close. The home team is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between the two teams. Back the Pelicans to get the job done.

Over Under Pick

The Pelicans are an elite offensive team, and they are going to run up the score in this game. Over the last five games the Cavaliers are giving up 110 points per game, and on the road this season the Pelicans are averaging 114.6 per game. The over is 10-3 in their last 13 home games, and 8-2 in the Pelicans’ last ten games against the Eastern Conference. Back the over to cash.

Fri, Feb 28th - 8:00pm ET:
Sacramento Kings @ Memphis Grizzlies picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Sacramento Kings
Memphis Grizzlies
SAC Kings Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies face off on Friday and the play is with the visiting squad. The Grizzlies are really struggling coming into this game, having lost four in a row, and they failed to cover the spread in each of those games. The Kings are also 6-2 against the spread in games played on zero days rest, so back to backs clearly don’t weight them down. In the last Grizzlies’ last game they gave up 140 points to the Rockets and their defense is going to let them down in this game. The Kings are also 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall.

Over Under Pick

This is a total to stay away from, but when these two teams face off the under is a solid play. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the two teams in Memphis. It’s a lean at best but if you need to bet the total, take the under.

Fri, Feb 28th - 8:00pm ET:
Dallas Mavericks @ Miami Heat picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Dallas Mavericks
Miami Heat
DAL Mavericks Point Spread
Over Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

The Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat face off on Friday night and in this game the value lies with the Mavericks. The Heat have had a lot of issues the last couple of weeks and coming into this game they have lost two in a row and four of five. In their last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jimmy Butler struggled down the stretch and that led to a loss. Over their last five games the Mavericks are averaging 121 points per game, and even if Luka Doncic can’t go in this game, the Mavericks will still find success. The road team is 33-15-3 against the spread in the last 51 meetings between these teams. Back the Mavericks to get the job done.

Over Under Pick

These are both teams who can score a lot, and don’t like to play a lot of defense. Over the last five games the Mavericks are averaging 121 points per game while the Heat are averaging 118. The over is 6-2 in the Heat’s last eight home games, and 8-2 in the Mavericks’ last ten overall. Back the over to cash with ease.

Detroit Pistons @ Phoenix Suns picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Detroit Pistons
Phoenix Suns
Suns ATS Point Spread
Under Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

You can barely recognize the Detroit Pistons these days from the team that was once expected to contend for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Four of the top-five scorers listed on the season-long roster are either hurt (Blake Griffin and Luke Kennard) or on a different team (Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson). Griffin (knee) will not return and Kennard (knee) is out until sometime next month. Unsurprisingly, Detroit is in the midst of a seven-game losing streak. The Phoenix Suns have won two of their last three games and three of their last five. DeAndre Ayton is coming off a 25-point, 17-rebound performance during Wednesday’s loss to the Clippers. The Pistons are 11-23 ATS in their last 34 overall, 5-12 ATS in their last 17 against opponents with losing records, and 8-17 ATS in their last 25 following a loss. Check back later for the line, but PHOENIX will probably be the play.

Over Under Pick

Phoenix guard Devin Booker (26.1 ppg) scored only 14 points against the Clippers and he has played eight straight games without reaching the 30-point mark. As for Detroit, to say it lacks firepower at this point in the season would be an understatement. The under is 3-1-1 in the Pistons’ last five on the road. It is also 5-1 in the Suns’ last six overall, 5-1 in their last six at home, 11-5-1 in their last 17 against opponents with losing records, and 4-1 in their last five playing on one day of rest. Additionally, the under is 5-2 in Detroit’s last seven trips to Phoenix. Lean toward the UNDER.

Washington Wizards @ Utah Jazz picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Washington Wizards
Utah Jazz
WAS Wizards +10.5 Point Spread
-110
Over 230 Game Totals
-110

Against the Spread Pick

The Utah Jazz have lost four games in a row heading into Friday. And when they are cold, they are really cold. The Jazz also dropped five straight in late January and early February, making for some alarming skids by the standards of a team that is 36-22. Bojan Bogdanovic (20.3 ppg) has been kept below his season average in four consecutive contests. The Washington Wizards pushed Milwaukee to overtime on Monday and then beat Brooklyn 110-106 on Wednesday. They have not lost a game by more than nine points in exactly one month (Jan. 28 to the Bucks). Washington is 5-1 ATS in its last six as an underdog. The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last four overall, 0-4 ATS in their last four at home, 0-5 ATS in their last five against opponents with losing records, and 2-6 ATS in their last eight playing on one day of rest. Getting more than 10 points should be enough for the WIZARDS.

Over Under Pick

It is no fault of Donovan Mitchell that Utah is struggling. Mitchell has scored at least 31 points in three straight outings. Washington is dead last in the NBA at 119.9 ppg allowed. The over is 18-7-1 in the Wizards’ last 26 on the road, 36-17 in their last 53 against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 8-3 in their last 11 playing on one day of rest. It is also 4-1 in the Jazz’s last five against opponents with winning percentages under .400 and 4-1 in their last five at home against opponents with losing road records. Take the OVER.

Denver Nuggets @ Los Angeles Clippers picks, expert predictions & betting tips

Denver Nuggets
Los Angeles Clippers
DEN Nuggets +5.5 Point Spread
-110
Over 218.5 Game Totals
-110

Against the Spread Pick

The Denver Nuggets are probably too good to be getting 5.5 points against anyone other than Milwaukee or the Lakers. They are sporting a 40-18 record and have won two in a row at the expense of Minnesota and Detroit. One of the deeper teams in the association, Denver has watched four different players lead the way in scoring over the past four contests–most recently Jerami Grant with 29 points against the Pistons. The Los Angeles Clippers have also won two straight, but they had previously been on a three-game losing streak. Lou Williams has scored only 14 total points in the past two outings. Denver is 4-1 ATS in its last five against opponents with winning percentages over .600 and 4-1 ATS in its last five following a win. The Clippers are 1-4 ATS in their last five at home against opponents with road winning percentages over .600, 6-13 ATS in their last 19 following a win, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 on Fridays, and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the two teams. The NUGGETS should be able to cover.

Over Under Pick

Denver may be the best defensive team in the Western Conference, but it has cooled off at that end of the floor. Four of its past five opponents have scored at least 113 points. The over is 4-1-1 in the Nuggets’ last six overall and 3-0-1 in their last four following a win. It is also 15-6 in the Clippers’ last 21 at home against opponents with winning road records. Look for this one to go OVER the total.

Latest NBA News

Other Sports News

The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to actually acknowledge that there games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league. This can only be considered as a good thing for NBA betting and professional basketball bettors. Much like hockey, there are no shortage of NBA predictions on every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

What Free NBA Expert Picks Do You Offer At Pickswise?

There are 2,460 games to bet on during the season and our expert NBA predictions provide betting angles into every game. If you’re looking for the best NBA bets today we have you covered. Our NBA experts share their best free NBA predictions each and every.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?

We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day.  The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyse every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily.  Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedule and referees and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.

Free NBA Predictions Moneyline

The moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not farfetched for the Warriors moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread

When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.

NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or less points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause the upset and win the game outright.

Free NBA Picks Over Under

NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA you might see a 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.

Expert NBA Parlays And Teaser NBA Predictions

NBA teasers are one of the few sports where these types of bets are utilized besides pro and college football. The most common points available in NBA teasers are 4, 4.5, and 5 with some books offering 7 points. You can apply these points on anywhere from 2 to 14 games with each bet you add the payout odds increasing. Of course in order for an NBA teaser to be graded a win, each team on the ticket must be graded a win. NBA parlays work in very much the same manner with between 2 and 10 teams being added to a ticket. You don’t get the 4, 4.5, or 5 points in NBA parlays but the payout odds are better

NBA Playoff Predictions

In addition to free daily NBA predictions, we also provide insight into NBA postseason betting. From best of seven quarterfinals matchups to the NBA Championship Finals, there’s nothing quite like the excitement of game seven in the series. In the NBA postseason home court becomes an even bigger advantage but it’s important to make sure the lines reflect that. Our experts analyse every playoff game and give you their expert NBA predictions to help you make the best selections in April and finish off the season in profit.
