Max’s NBA Bet Picks for 3/29/21
MIA (-4.5) at NYK (4.5)
Pick: Bet $20 New York
Total: 208.5 (Lean Under – 207)
Predicted Score: MIA 102 – NYK 105
Overview: The Knicks are looking to win their 4th straight game – after winning against a short-handed Bucks team on Saturday. New York returns home where they are 14-8 and are 6-2 over the past month.
Julius Randle missed their last game and is questionable for NYK. But I am hopeful he does suit up tonight because I think the Knicks have a good shot of winning this one if he does. Miami still has not exorcised their road demons from last season and they won’t have help from Victor Oladipo just yet.
Both of these teams can play some solid defense – so the under on this low total is not out of the question here. But when scores are this low, I think the dog has a very good chance of keeping it close.
$20 bet on the Knicks.
DAL (-9.5) at OKC (9.5)
Pick: Bet $20 DAL
Total: 216.5 (Lean Over – 220)
Predicted Score: DAL 116 – OKC 104
Overview: The Thunder have waived the white flag on the season. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out and won’t be rushed back and Al Horford will sit out the remaining games of this season to protect him from injury – with the hope of trading him in the offseason.
Dallas has lost 2 in a row and in only a ho-hum 12-11 on the road this season. But one of their recent losses came when Luka sat out and the other when both Luka and Porzingis didn’t play. Both are expected to return tonight.
In their previous 5 wins, Dallas was winning by an average of 20 points. So I don’t think it’s hard to think that if they win tonight, they win big.
$20 bet on the Mavs.
SAC (2.5) at SAS (-2.5)
Pick: Bet $20 SAC
Total: 228 (Lean Under – 220)
Predicted Score: SAC 112 – SAS 108
Overview: I seem to be burned when I bet against the Spurs. Or maybe it’s just when I bet on the Bulls against the Spurs. Or maybe just betting on the Bulls. Well, half of that equation can be tested tonight as I once again bet against the Spurs but this time put my faith in a Kings team that has done me right recently.
Sacramento continues to stay hot from the floor and have shown no indications of a regressing just yet. Their EFG % has improved overall this past month but more importantly to tonight’s game, it’s been 2% better in their road games.
The Kings are only 9-13 on the road this season but they are riding a 4-game winning streak right now and have won some road games that they probably would have lost a month or so ago. I do have the Kings winning this game but I feel better taking the points.
$20 bet on Sacramento.
IND (-4.5) at WAS (4.5)
Pick: Lean WAS
Total: 234.5 (Lean Under – 233)

MIN (11.5) at BKN (-11.5)
Pick: Lean MIN
Total: 239.5 (Lean Under – 229)
Predicted Score: MIN 112 – BKN 117

MEM (-5.5) at HOU (5.5)

Pick: Lean GSW
Total: 224.5 (Lean Under – 223)
