Tip – Charlotte is in a three-man race with Detroit and Orlando to lock up the 8th and final playoff spot in the East. The good news for Hornets fans is that they are an impressive 7-3 SU in their last ten games, while covering all four of their most recent contests. Cleveland on the other hand has been a miserable bet ATS of late, going 1-4 in their last five games. Don’t expect Kemba Walker to let his Hornets leave Cleveland without a victory. Walker has been on an absolute tear in the month of April, averaging nearly 35 ppg.

Tip – Detroit must bounce back from a huge loss at the hands of Charlotte on Sunday, if they have any hopes of continuing their season past this week. Detroit has performed their best at home, going a notable 11-2 SU over their last 13 games in Little Caesars Arena. Unfortunately Detroit has not impressed ATS, going just 1-4 in their last five games. In fact, Detroit fairs even worse against Memphis. Over their last 18 head-to-head matchups, Detroit has escaped victorious just four times, while covering the spread in only five games.

Tip – Miami is the third team in this article in must-win mode on Tuesday night. Yet the Heat have far and beyond the toughest matchup of the three teams. Miami has gone just 1-4 ATS vs. Philadelphia in their last five games. They do, however, have a great history of capturing the SU victory against the ‘6ers. Miami is 20-5 SU in their last 25 games vs. Philly. With just two games remaining on the 76ers schedule, it wouldn’t surprise many if they reduce Joel Embiid’s minutes as the team heads into the playoffs.

Tip – The Nets clinched their first playoff appearance since moving to Brooklyn on Sunday. Miami will also look to punch their ticket to the dance by coming away with a victory on Wednesday. A well-rested Nets team means a well earning bet. Brooklyn has gone 13-4 ATS in their last 16 games when playing on two days of rest. Brooklyn has hit the UNDER in five of their last six home games, while the UNDER has been hit in nine of the last 11 meetings between these two teams.

Tip – Orlando can still avoid a round-one matchup with Toronto if they can jump Brooklyn in the standings. To do so, they will likely need to capture a SU victory on Wednesday, while simultaneously knocking the Hornets out of playoff contention. These two teams have excelled in covering the spread in recent games. Orlando is 4-1 ATS in their last five games, while Charlotte has gone undefeated in their past four. Charlotte simply has more to play for, as their playoff hopes dangle by a thread. Plus the home team is 5-2 SU over the last seven head-to-head matchups between these two teams.
