Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks

The Kings are continuing their road trip against the Knicks at 7:30PM ET. After the Kings started February off with two solid weeks, they have found their home back in the bottom 3 teams in the league next to Minnesota and Houston or Detroit. New York is 4-0 Against The Spread following their 4 most recent losses. I see the Knicks coming into this game refocused after their loss to Golden State on Tuesday. I like the Knicks to take care of the spread -2 or MoneyLine. This is one of my favorite Daily NBA Picks.

Dallas Mavericks vs Philadelphia 76ers

The Dallas Mavericks have begun to find their footing after losing six straight in early February. They have now won 7 of their last 10. They will take on Joel Embiid and the 76ers at 7 PM ET in Philadelphia. This will be Seth Curry’s first game against his former team so watch out for his revenge game. Embiid has been off his last two games so I’m expecting him to get back to his 30 point ways. His last 10 games points wise, 37, 33, 25, 35, 35, 31, 50, 25, 18. I expect a good game but give the 76ers an edge due to their 13-2 home record, as well as the Mavericks tend to struggle against strong defensive teams. 

 

Orlando Magic vs Brooklyn Nets

The Orlando Magic are heading to Brooklyn to face the Nets. The game is set to start at 7:35 PM ET. I’ll keep it short and sweet, the Nets are the hottest team in the league right now winning seven straight without Kevin Durant. On the other hand, the Magic just lost to the Pistons and they continue to struggle on the road. Nets moneyline is one of my favorite NBA Daily Picks. You could even go with the over at 227.5, Brooklyn is 2nd in the league in high over percentage at 69.7 following the Pelicans right over 73%. 

Los Angeles Clippers vs Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies will host the LA Clippers 8PM ET. The Clippers should have an easy win here, but don’t be surprised if the Grizzlies keep it interesting. Dillon Brooks is questionable but they have some solid pieces around Ja Morant and Jonas Valunciunas. Brandon Clarke, Kyle Anderson and Grayson Allen. The Grizzlies have been a fun team to watch regardless of their 13-14 record. I like the Clippers moneyline or Clippers -7.5. 

 

Denver Nuggets vs Washington Wizards

The Nuggets will play the Wizards at 9PM ET in Denver. The Nuggets will be looking to redeem themselves against the Wizards after losing to them by 2 on February 17th. Pass on the MoneyLine because the Wizards have been playing good basketball and more importantly getting wins. I don’t like the idea of betting against a happy Bradley Beal and Westbrook putting up over 20 in his last 3 contests. I like Wizards +7.5, I think this game could go down to the last minute or two and for that reason this is one of my favorite Daily NBA Picks. Over 236.5 looks steep but might also be a play. Washington has hit the over in 4 of their last 5, while Denver averages 115 points per game this season. These teams also totaled 258 points in their first meeting this season. 

 

New Orleans Pelicans vs Milwaukee Bucks

The Pelicans travel to the Bucks looking to get their 3rd straight win while the Bucks look to get their 4th straight. The most important player in this game tonight is Zion Williamson. He’s averaging 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists while shooting 60% from the field. If he can have his efficient night against a lengthy bucks interior, they have a good chance to get the dub. Expect a memorable showdown tonight against the reigning MVP and a future MVP in Zion. Not to take anything away from Brandon Ingram who has been balling this year, but Zion is that man. I like New Orleans +9 as I think this game will go down to the wire. Over 240.5 is too high for me, both teams have powerful offenses but I think whichever team can cause an extra turnover or two will end up with the win. I expect the defensive intensity in this game to be fun.
