Check out yesterday’s picks!

Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks 7:30 pm ET

The Wizards, playing tonight without Bradley Beal, need wins to hold on to their spot in the Play-In Tournament while Atlanta is looking to secure the fourth seed and get the home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Washington shot the lights against the Hawks in the fourth quarter of their last meeting, going 7-11 on 3-pointers to bring them back from a double-digit deficit and the game will be close if Russell Westbrook is his usual self. Trae had 36 points on 50% shooting in the last meeting between the two teams and a repeat performance on that level is unlikely. The Hawks could use a win, but Washington has more to play for so betting the points is the right move.

PICK: Wizards +6.5. Over 238.5 is decent as well.

San Antonio Spurs at Brooklyn Nets 8 pm ET

James Harden is a game-time decision tonight and Kyrie Irving is out, but Kevin Durant will be in his playoff mindset even if Harden does not play. San Antonio is inconsistent offensively and if this Nets team shoots well, they should run away with the win. Brooklyn is 25-8 at home this season and 7-1 against the spread when playing teams with losing records, while the Spurs are 1-4 against the spread when playing the Nets in their last 5 games. One number to fade is the cover % on the road for San Antonio, which is the highest in the league at 66.7%. Nevertheless, the Nets should win outright.

PICK: Nets Moneyline or Nets -5.5.

Portland Trailblazers at Utah Jazz 10 pm ET

This game will definitely have a playoff feel. These teams shoot more 3-pointers by volume than any other team in the league, but the edge goes to Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, and the Trailblazers because of their stellar play recently. The Jazz are without Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley and they do not have many bodies to throw at Portland’s backcourt. Nurkic is a fine matchup for Gobert and unless Bojan Bogdanovic drops 30, Vegas will have overvalued Utah.

PICK: Trailblazers Moneyline.
