Philadelphia 76ers vs.
Boston Celtics (-2)
It’s tough to bet against Joel Embiid, but that’s exactly what
we’re doing here. Boston has been red-hot as of late, and it’s
tough to deny how perfect of a fit Derrick White is as well. The
Celtics are pushing all the right buttons lately, so let’s hammer
Celtics -2 before James Harden officially joins the lineup with
Embiid in Philadelphia.
Pick: Celtics -2
PrizePicks Power Play: Joel Embiid over 31.5 points,
Jayson Tatum over 25.5 points, Jaylen Brown over 23.5 points,
Tyrese Maxey over 16.5 points
Atlanta Hawks (-1) vs.
This feels like the perfect opportunity to hammer the underdog
on the road. Cleveland’s frontcourt has simply been dominant on
defense throughout this season. Trae Young will have a hard time
consistently finding driving lanes with Evan Mobley and Jarrett
Allen around the rim. Led by the Cavaliers’ twin towers, we’re
locking in Cleveland.
Pick: Cavaliers +1
PrizePicks Power Play: Trae Young over 27.5 points, Evan
Mobley over 13.5 points, Clint Capela over 12.5 rebounds, Jarrett
Allen over 11 rebounds
Miami Heat (-4) vs.
Luka Doncic has been on fire throughout the month of February,
but will his magic run out in Miami? We’re not betting against Luka
magic, especially as the enticing 4-point underdog. Doncic is
single-handedly carrying the Mavericks’ offense, but he seems more
than okay handling a monster workload. The Mavericks are a smart
wager here at +4.
Pick: Mavericks +4
PrizePicks Power Play: Luka Doncic over 29.5 points, Bam
Adebayo over 19.5 points, Kyle Lowry over 7.5 assists, Jalen
Brunson over 4.5 assists
(-6) vs. Charlotte Hornets
This qualifies as one of “Nothing But Bets'” best wagers for
Tuesday’s slate. The Timberwolves have been a pesky team all season
long who is tenacious on both ends of the court. Meanwhile, the
Hornets are sliding at the most time before the All-Star break.
Hammering Minnesota here is a best bet, mainly because the Hornets’
impossible task of stopping Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards
from each scoring 25-plus points.
Pick: Timberwolves -6
PrizePicks Power Play: Karl-Anthony Towns over 25.5
points, Anthony Edwards over 23.5 points, LaMelo Ball over 8.5
assists, Terry Rozier over 3.5 threes
Milwaukee Bucks (-14) vs.
This is a guaranteed hit, folks. The Indiana Pacers are in
full-on tank mode, plus Giannis
Antetokounmpo is available for Milwaukee tonight. Expect Giannis
and the Bucks to make quick work of the shorthanded Pacers, who are
garnering some long-term hope with point guard Tyrese Haliburton.
Hammer the Bucks with no hesitation, even at the 14-point
Pick: Bucks -14
PrizePicks Power Play: Giannis Antetokounmpo over 28.5
points, Khris Middleton over 19.5 points, Tyrese Haliburton over
16.5 points, Buddy Hield over 3.5 threes
New Orleans Pelicans vs.
Memphis Grizzlies (-4.5)
I absolutely love the Grizzlies in this spot, especially with
the Pelicans on the second night of a back-to-back. Ja Morant
should easily slice through the Pelicans’ defense, but expect a
very fast-paced game on both sides. In the end, it’s not a wise
idea to bet against Morant and the Grizzlies right now.
(No Grizzlies props available on PrizePicks currently, but we
love Morant’s points and Steven Adams’ rebounds to go over.)
Pick: Grizzlies -4.5
PrizePicks Power Play: Brandon Ingram over 21.5 points,
CJ McCollum over 20.5 points
Phoenix Suns (-13) vs.
Los Angeles Clippers
This is another guaranteed blowout you should take full
advantage of. The Suns close their pre-All-Star-break schedule
taking on the Clippers and Houston Rockets on back-to-back nights.
This is the perfect opportunity for Phoenix to make one big, final
statement before a break in action. Devin Booker and Chris Paul are
going to easily do work against the Clippers; plus, Mikal Bridges’
growth on offense continues to catch more attention nationally.
Hammer Suns -13 as another “Nothing But Bets” best bet for
Pick: Suns -13
PrizePicks Power Play: Devin Booker over 25.5 points,
Reggie Jackson over 18.5 points, Marcus Morris over 15.5 points,
Chris Paul over 11.5 assists
