Orlando Magic VS Houston Rockets (2 units)
- Orlando Magic (-2.5 Handicap)
- Over 226.5 Total match points
With 2 of the leagues worst teams facing each other, Houston travel to Orlando having lost 7 straight games. Whereas, Orlando have only won 1 out of their last 7, there is almost nothing separating these underperforming teams. However, the Magic have shown the ability to play hard with their young roster and tend to play much better against weaker sides. In a battle of 2 extremely weak defences, this can be seen to become a high scoring game.
Washington Wizards VS San Antonio Spurs (2 units)
- San Antonio Spurs to win
- Under 227.5 Total match points.
Despite both these team’s poor season records, this is a significant game as they both find themselves right outside the playoff picture and will look to turn that around. The Spurs have an efficient offence lead by the consistent scorer in Dejounte Murray. Whereas Washington continue to play without their leading scorer in Bradley Beal leaving Kyle Kuzma and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope being tasked to handle most of the offensive duties. It is hard to see the Wizards filling up the scoreboard across all 4 quarters.
New York Nicks VS Miami Heat (2 units)
- Miami Heat (-5.5 Handicap)
- Under 219.5 Total match points
The Knicks are playing shot handed with multiple players out, not to mention they have been close to a disaster season. The announcement of shutting down Kemba Walker seems unlikely to change the mood around the team. They also struggle to win at home with a record of 13 wins and 17 loses at MSG. Miami have the final stretch of a season they have surpassed expectations and will continue to look to do so. Last time these 2 teams faced off, Miami came away with a comfortable win 110-96. The total match points selection is nearly 10 points higher than that, which is where we find value in this tip.
