Indiana Pacers @ Detroit Pistons
Prediction Detroit (Win)
The Detroit Pistons are fighting for a playoff birth and need to keep winning to stay in the playoff hunt. They are running out of time and Blake Griffen is Questionable for this game. If he does play the Pistons should get the win and the home team has won the last four encounters between these two sides.
A Potential Playoff appearance is a lot on the line and this should motivate the Pistons to get the win.
New York Knicks @ Orlando Magic
Much the same as the Pistons, Orlando also need to keep winning to keep their Eastern Conference playoffs hopes alive. New York has been horrible all season, but did put up a good show against the Bulls the other day.
The Orlando Magic should bring some defense and the game should be low scoring. Take the Under in this game.
Toronto Raptors @ Brooklyn Nets
Brooklyn is another team in the East who are fighting for a playoff birth and need to keep winning to hold on to their spot. One would expect them to play some defense with so much on the line but their form has been average in recent times.
Only a combined average of 213 in their last 3 home encounters would suggest that the game total is a chance to go under.
Boston Celtics @ Miami Heat
Prediction – 213.5
Miami is also in the Eastern Conference Playoff hunt and was quite good against the Celtics a couple of days back.
Miami has only averaged a combined 192 in their last 3 home games so this game should be low scoring. Throw in the fact it’s a must-win game for Miami and they should get it done as slight home underdogs.
Charlotte Hornets @ New Orleans Pelicans
Prediction – 231.5
New Orleans has a huge list of injuries and rested players and the Hornets have been horrible on the road in recent times.
Do not try and back a winner but the Game Total does look like going under.
The only reason would be the lack of talent on the floor. If both sides decide to play some defense the under looks good.
Minnesota Timberwolves @ Dallas Mavericks
Dallas has a combined total average of 241 in their last 3 home encounters and they have been playing some ball of late. If Doncic plays they should be almost a certainty.
The Timberwolves have struggled without their starting backcourt over the last couple of weeks.
The Mavericks to get the Win.
Utah Jazz @ Pheonix Suns
Prediction + 221.5
The Utah Jazz will win this game it is just a question of by how much.
The Suns have a combined average of 241 in their last 3 home games and the Jazz may have a night off on the Defensive end against weaker opposition.
The Over Game Total looks pretty decent and the Jazz should cover the spread but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Memphis Grizzlies @ Portland Trail Blazers
Prediction + 215.5
The Portland Trail Blazers have been playing well without McCollum and Nurkic and they should continue their winning ways against a competitive Memphis side. The game could be close here.
Both sides have a combined average of 226 in their last 5 encounters and the Blazers have averaged an incredible 255 combined in their last 3 home games. Take the over here.
So a twelve game slate here and lots of games to take a look at.
All the best of luck and check back for more predictions.
Game Total – 2/7
Head to Head – 0/3
