Top 3 NBA Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions: Friday (1/27)

Jan 27, 2023 - 12:06 AM

We finish the day on Wednesday going just 1-2 ATS, losing our 76ers bet by just 1.5 points following a 35-point fourth quarter from the Nets. We’re back for a packed Friday slate as we dial into the three spots I’m on to take us into the weekend.

Here are our other top picks for Friday:

YTD Record: 68-57-4 ATS

Let’s take a closer look.

Pacers (+7.5) vs. Bucks

While this game should be a blowout on paper, a closer look has me believing that this Pacers team could keep things close. Despite losing eight of their past night, five of those losses have come on the road. Of the three at home, the Pacers have covered in two and are now one of the best home teams ATS in the league at 16-9.

With Bobby Portis and Serge Ibaka already out of the lineup for the Bucks, they’ll also be taking the court with a hobbled Giannis Antetokounmpo. Having covered just 1 of their last two and going 1-4 ATS in their previous five on the road, I think the Bucks allow this one to stay inside the number.

Bet: Pacers +7.5 (-110)

Magic (+7.5) vs. Heat

For the first time this season, the Florida teams will square off, this time in Miami on Friday night. Typically playing three-four times a year, the Magic have got the best of the series as of late, covering six of their last eight in the rivalry.

The Magic also have the hot hand as of late, winning three of their past four and covering five of their past six games. For the Heat, two of three wins have produced a record of just 1-2 ATS, and they come into this one with a banged-up Jimmy Butler, Max Strus, and Haywood Highsmith.

Magic keep it close.

Bet: Magic +7.5 (-110)

Warriors (-5) vs. Raptors

The Warriors will go for their first back-to-back wins on the year, as they have just beat Memphis 122-120 on Wednesday. In the win, the Warriors had their first look at their big three healthy for the first time in months.

In what will be a rematch of the NBA Finals just a few years ago, the Raptors will now come to town, also getting healthy. Having won two straight, Wednesday was one of their most complete performances of the year, holding the Kings to just 95 points on the night.

In the end, a healthy Warriors win this one by double digits.

Bet: Warriors -5 (-110)
