NBA Picks March 18th, 2019
We have ourselves a 9 Game Slate in this one.
Here are some of the better Free NBA Picks for March 18th, 2019.
Detroit Pistons @ Cleveland Cavs
The Pistons travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavs. Cleveland has averaged 223 for their last 3 homes games and these two sides have a combined average of 218 in their last 5 meetings. The Over looks ok here, but the game may be slow paced. The defensive intensity of this contest would be questionable so a high scoring contest is always a chance.
Utah Jazz @ Washington Wizards
The Washington Wizards like to play fast-paced and the Utah Jazz are normally not too bad at matching this and defeating teams. The Head to Head average in the last 5 games is only 196 between these two sides, but the Wizards are playing faster pace this season. The over is always a chance in Washington games.
New York Knicks @ Toronto Raptors
The under is attractive here because it is difficult to see where New York will get their buckets from and it can be tough to score in Toronto. Toronto has averaged 216 in their last 3 home games so the defence has been there. If the Knicks struggle to shoot the ball, this game will be low scoring.
Miami Heat @ Oklahoma City Thunder
You never really know what you’re getting with the Miami Heat, but the last 5 times these two sides have met the average has been 203. Throw in the Thunder with a scoring average of 199 in their last three home games and the under is better than an even money chance. Take a look, just hope the game isn’t fast paced.
Golden State Warriors @ San Antonio Spurs
The Warriors smashed the Spurs in their last encounter. The Spurs did, however, rest a bunch of their better players. Durant and Cousins are going into this contest with some niggling injuries, so some of the Warriors scoring chances may dry up. 206 is the average between these two sides in their last 5 encounters.
Indiana Pacers @ Portland Trail Blazers
Portland -4.5 +213.5
The only line bet in this one and the Portland Trail Blazers should take care of the Pacers on their home floor even with C.J. McCollum out. The Pacers are 8-12 against the Spread as the away Underdog this season. Portland has averaged a combined 244 for their last 3 Home Games.
Portland to cover the spread and the over are decent shots in this one.
Game Total – 2/6
Against the Spread – 1/1
