Tip – Houston comes into this game as the hottest team in basketball. James Harden has taken the NBA by storm over the past month, cementing himself into the MVP race. Houston is now 6-1 ATS in their last seven games. While Denver sits atop the Western Conference standings, they haven’t fared well with the lines bestowed upon them from betting sites of late. The Nuggets are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.

Tip – The Celtics, winners of three of their last four games, will likely enter Wednesday as home favorites. Boston is phenomenal ATS at home, compiling a 27-8 record in their last 35 games. The Pacers had a five game win streak broken on Sunday. They match up nicely with Boston, as they own the league’s top ranked defense. Indiana’s ability to slow the game place down will play in their favor, likely helping them advance to 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games.

Tip – Expect a high scoring affair in Wednesday’s game, led by the two current front-runners for NBA MVP. Giannis’ Bucks have hit the OVER in four consecutive games, thanks in large part to their top ranked offense. Houston’s mediocre defense will struggle with Milwaukee’s length. Don’t be surprised if Milwaukee makes this road contest a SU victory.

Tip – This is a brutal two game span for Miami, as they will be just two days removed from a contest against Denver. Miami is just 1-3 ATS in their last four games. With Kyrie Irving expected to make his return to Boston’s starting lineup on Monday, he should have no ill-effects in his game by tip off on Thursday. Justice Winslow, a player who has started at both forward positions for Miami at times this year, has been running the point for the Heat’s offense over the last few games. It’s frankly unfair to ask Winslow to guard Kyrie Irving, and that’s just what Miami will do.

Tip – The Nuggets, who are 16-3 at home this season, may very well be the best team in the NBA thus far. LA sits at .500 in road games this year. The Clippers, who are extremely reliant on their offense, will not see the same success they are use to in this game. Denver’s third ranked defense in the NBA will handle business on Thursday.

Tip – The Spurs are 6-2 over their last eight games, but get a tough matchup with the 3rd placed Thunder this weekend. Still, San Antonio is a remarkable 9-1 ATS in their last ten contests. LaMarcus Aldridge, and, believe it or not, Derrick White, have been exceptional over that ten game run. OKC has had their difficulties defending bigs who can shoot in the mid-range, something that Aldridge has built his career on.
