Tip – Number two and number three in the East face off on Wednesday night, both riding two-game winning streaks. The Raptors have struggled ATS on the road as of late, going just 1-8 ATS over their last nine games away from Toronto. Indiana is an impressive 6-1 ATS at home vs. teams with winning records.

SA Spurs at PHI 76ers

Tip – Philly is coming off a monster win over Houston on Monday night, where Joel Embiid went for 32 points and 14 rebounds. The ‘6ers are also extremely dominant at home this season, going 20-5 at the Fargo Center. Yet, trends show Philadelphia is not good coming off wins, so while they’ll likely capture a SU win, the Spurs will likely win ATS. Philly has also hit the UNDER in ten of their past 13 games vs. teams with winning records. This series has hit the UNDER in 11 of their last 14 meetings.

TOR Raptors at HOU Rockets

Tip – James Harden has now scored 30 points or more in an absurd 20 consecutive games, only the second player in NBA history to reach such a feat. Unfortunately this hasn’t translated to wins, as the Rockets are just 5-5 over their last ten games, never winning back-to-back games. Houston will likely win against the Knicks on Wednesday, making it even more unlikely that they’ll knock off the team with the most wins in all of the NBA on Friday night.

GS Warriors at BOS Celtics

Tip – The NBA had it’s fun, but as All-Star weekend approaches, the Warriors are once again cementing themselves as the clear favorites to capture another NBA title. They’ve now won eight straight games, and have covered the spread or pushed in five straight. Kyrie has definitely gotten through to his teammates, as the Celtics have won four straight, but simply put, the Warriors can win any game they feel like winning at this point.

Tip – No one seems to take Denver seriously, yet the 2nd placed team in the West just continues to win. Denver owns a record of 20-4 at home, while Philly is just 9-14 ATS in away games. Nikola Jokic should be able to tame Joel Embiid’s usual dominance in the paint. This will likely conclude with the score total hitting the UNDER, which has occurred in three straight games for Philly.

MIL Bucks at OKC Thunder

Bet with 888 Sports

Tip – OKC is one of those odd teams that actually owns a better ATS record on the road than in their home arena. However, that is not a good statistic when the Milwaukee Bucks are coming to town. Milwaukee has won or pushed six of their last eight games ATS, while Oklahoma City is just 3-5 ATS in their past eight contests. Milwaukee’s defensive length should match up brilliantly against OKC’s lineup. Offensively, the Bucks 2nd ranked scoring unit in the NBA will be too much for a Thunder defense that has surrendered 138+ points in three of their last six games.
