Without further ado, let’s go ahead and dive into Tuesday’s best NBA betting action.
Boston Celtics (-6.5) vs. Atlanta Hawks
It's going to be fun to watch this one unfold in Boston. Obviously, Trae Young and Jayson Tatum are going to steal the show, but who holds the all-around advantage for this matchup? Young will pour in the points, as will Tatum, but we lean toward the Celtics continuing their momentum with their red-hot play. Boston is the best team in the Eastern Conference since 2022 began, so betting against their run right now isn’t a wise strategy.
Pick: Celtics -6.5
PrizePicks Power Play: Trae Young over 27.5 points, Jayson Tatum over 26.5 points, Jaylen Brown over 24.5 points, Clint Capela over 11.5 rebounds
Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors (-3)
Somehow, the Warriors were 1.5-point underdogs on various sportsbooks less than 24 hours ago. Now, a lot of money has come in and flipped the spread entirely toward Golden State as 3-point favorites. Minnesota has been awesome lately, but they’re on the second night of a back-to-back after a close win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Karl-Anthony Towns will do damage to the Warriors, since they don’t have much versatility down low, but who’s going to stop Stephen Curry on the other end? Never bet against Curry, it’s not a smart idea.
Pick: Warriors -3
PrizePicks Power Play: Stephen Curry over 26.5 points, Karl-Anthony Towns over 23.5 points, Jarred Vanderbilt over 8.5 rebounds, Kevon Looney over 8.5 rebounds
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks (-5)
The Lakers are a train wreck, simple as that. The Russell Westbrook trade has been a disaster from the start, plus Los Angeles’ lack of overall competent depth is really hurting them. Barely holding on right now to a play-in spot, can the Lakers capture some momentum on Tuesday? We seriously doubt it, especially with the way Luka Doncic is dominating. We expect Luka to put on a show in Hollywood, so hammer with emphasis Dallas in this spot.
Pick: Mavericks -5
PrizePicks Power Play: Luka Doncic over 31.5 points, LeBron James over 28.5 points, Russell Westbrook over 5.5 assists, Jalen Brunson over 4.5 assists
