Our Pick
From a quality perspective alone, the Boston Celtics have much more talent than the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s not as if the Cavaliers can’t get baskets when they need to, but the Celtics have players that can challenge their attack at every position.

Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers

The Houston Rockets’ season is in the gutter, while the Los Angeles Lakers are still fighting to prove that they aren’t Play-In fodder.

Houston Rockets +700

Los Angeles Lakers -1250

Our Pick
The Houston Rockets are probably ready for this dreadful season to come to an end. On the other side of the court, the Los Angeles Lakers are working hard to find their rhythm for their eventual Play-In matchup. Recent improvements from Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond, and Kyle Kuzma have been encouraging.

San Antonio Spurs vs Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets secured post-season play long ago, but the San Antonio Spurs are doing their best just to remain in the Play-In.

Teams Odds
San Antonio Spurs +155
BET NOW
Brooklyn Nets -195

Odds from PointsBet. Get up to four RISK FREE bets up to $1000 or check out more offers and promo codes for the best online sportsbooks.

Our Pick
The Brooklyn Nets are generally playing shorthanded, but their overall talent level is too high to ignore. While the San Antonio Spurs play solid defence, even against some of the biggest stars, it’s their lack of firepower than will be their downfall against the Nets.
