NBA Betting Picks: Top Plays of the Day
Houston Rockets (-7.5) @ New York Knicks - 7:30 pm
The Rockets were embarrassed by the Sixers their last time out and look to rebound as they continue the road trip at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. Bottom line: New York is completely unbackable at this point. The Knicks have covered just one of their last nine home games and are 4-15 on its home floor this season. The Rockets haven’t been so great against the spread, but have covered five of the last six after a loss. Houston comes back in a big way as James Harden victimizes the hapless Knicks, who are primed for a seventh straight loss.
Pick: Houston Rockets -7.5
Orlando Magic @ Brooklyn Nets (-5.5) - 7:30pm
We go from a struggling New York franchise to a surging one as the Nets seek a fifth straight win when they welcome the Magic to Barclays Center. Brooklyn has gone from 8-18 out of the game to 25-23, and they’re sitting comfortably in playoff position in the east. The Magic have covered nine of 11 against the Atlantic division, but more recent trends side with the Nets, who have covered five straight at home. Brooklyn erased a huge deficit at Orlando just last week and came up with a win, and I expect them to do the same on its home floor tonight as the SugarHouse Sportsbook app has them as a 5.5-point favorite.
Pick: Brooklyn Nets -5.5
San Antonio Spurs @ Philadelphia 76ers (-3.5)
The 76ers are coming off a dominant win over Houston in Philadelphia, and welcome in the Spurs on Wednesday evening. San Antonio has struggled on the road this season, although they have covered five of the last six against the eastern conference. The trends oddly go against the Sixers in this matchup, but part of sports wagering is knowing when the trends are all wrong. Philadelphia is a gaudy 20-5 at home this season and knows it needs every win it can get with Boston on their heels in the Atlantic division. It’s hard not to see Joel Embiid & Co. come out with a win at home against a group that’s cooled off a lot since starting 2019 on a hot streak. SugarHouse Online Sportsbook has the 76ers as a 3.5-point favorite and we will roll with that.
Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -3.5
NBA Betting Pick: Over/Under Play of the Day
Detroit Pistons @ New Orleans Pelicans (Over/Under 221.5) - 8:30pm
We are continuing our newest tradition of handing out a free over/under play for tonight’s games. SugarHouse Sportsbook has an over/under of 221.1 for the Pistons visiting New Orleans, which feels too low, so we are hopping all over it. The Pelicans are one of the league’s best offensive teams and worst defensive teams in terms of points per game, scoring 117.1 and allowing 115.1. New Orleans returns to its home floor tonight, where it has put up at least 123 points in three of its last four contests. Detroit is a middle-of-the-pack team on both ends, but I see the pace of this game getting to the point where it sails over the projected total.
Pick: Pistons/Pelicans over 221.5
Best of luck!
