Miami Heat -1 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

Both of these teams are the hottest teams in the NBA right now. Philadelphia is on a five-game winning streak, and Miami is 10-2 since the end of January. The Heat played Thursday, and they got a good rotation that they were able to limit minutes against the Nets. The 76ers played last night, and four of their five starters put in 35+ minutes in that game, and now they are traveling to Miami for another game tonight. Minutes matter in games that the teams both are talented. The Miami Heat has the advantage on the minutes.    

Dallas Mavericks -7 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

Dallas is 8-2 in their last ten games. The Mavericks are starting to look like a playoff contender if they keep improving at the rate they are. Luka Doncic has been taking charge recently, and the results have been great. They are sitting at 38-25 and have been a strong team in the second half of the season. The Kings are the opposite. Since the trade deadline, they have won two games, and they were against the Thunder and the Spurs. Both teams are in the bottom half of the NBA. The advantage in this game goes to the Mavericks.

Charlotte Hornets Moneyline (-170 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Hornets have been on a downhill slide recently, but this is a chance to buy them with good value. They haven’t lost to the San Antonio Spurs yet this year. That is partly because San Antonio is inconsistent and has no big-time scorers. They struggle defensively too. They are ranked #25 in the NBA in defense. Low-ranked defensive teams are where the Hornets have thriven against this year. They struggled against great defensive teams, and that has shown all season. This game is the perfect bounce-back game for the Hornets.
