Without further ado, let’s go ahead and dive into Tuesday’s enticing slate of action from a betting perspective.

Custom Patch Hats

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. Cleveland Cavaliers

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. Dallas Mavericks

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

Minnesota Timberwolves (-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. Indiana Pacers

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 spread.

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 tonight’s slate.

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
