Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 3/18/22
WAS (5.5) at NYK (-5.5)
Pick: Bet $10 NYK ML
Total: 223.5 (Lean Over – 229)
Predicted Score: WAS 107 – NYK 122
Notes: The Wizards have lost 5 in a row and are currently out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
The Knicks are still behind Washington in the standings but have been playing some better basketball as of late.
Their wins tend to be blowouts so I would not hate if someone bet them to cover this one.
I’ll take the moneyline instead.
$10 moneyline bet on the Knicks.
DEN (-2.5) at CLE (2.5)
Pick: Bet $10 DEN ML
Total: 221.5 (Lean Over – 225)
Predicted Score: DEN 114 – CLE 111
Notes: Jokic continues his MVP run as the Nuggets continue their road trip tonight in Cleveland.
Denver has won 2 in a row while the Cavs have lost 3 out of their last 5 games.
Injuries have derailed the Cavs’ season. Jarrett Allen continues to be out with a finger injury. He will not undergo surgery and should be back before the playoffs.
Of course the Cavs might end up in the play-in game if they can’t get things right.
Denver is also trying to avoid the play-in tournament with Minnesota nipping at their heels.
I like how Denver is playing right now and with the extra motivation of Jamaal Murray coming back, this team should be ready to get another road win tonight.
$10 moneyline bet on Denver.
CHI (6.5) at PHX (-6.5)
Pick: Bet $10 PHX ML
Total: 229.5 (Lean Over – 231)
Predicted Score: CHI 112 – PHX 119
Notes: The Suns are such a good team. Losing Chris Paul has not been a death knell and instead, they have gone 9-4 without him in the lineup.
Phoenix is 29-8 at home this year and taking on a banged-up Bulls team. Chicago has lost 2 in a row – both on the road – and have dropped to 2 games under .500 on the road.
This is another team that, when healthy, showed they can be a dangerous team.
So they just need to get healthy and avoid slipping to the play-in games in order to make a playoff runt his year.
Unfortunately for them, I think they end up on the losing side tonight.
$10 moneyline bet on the Suns.
DAL (2.5) at PHI (-2.5)
Pick: Lean DAL
Total: 220.5 (Lean Under – 219)
Predicted Score: DAL 111 – PHI 108
POR (14) at BKN (-14)
Pick: Lean BKN
Total: 226.5 (Lean Over – 228)
Predicted Score: POR 107 – BKN 121
MEM (-5) at ATL (5)
Pick: Lean ATL
Total: 236 (Lean Under – 236)
Predicted Score: MEM 119 – ATL 117
LAC (5.5) at UTA (-5.5)
Pick: Lean UTA
Total: 217.5 (Lean Over – 223)
Predicted Score: LAC 108 – UTA 115
LAL (9) at TOR (-9)
Pick: Lean LAL
Total: 225.5 (Lean Over – 226)
Predicted Score: LAL 110 – TOR 116
OKC (14.5) at MIA (-14.5)
Pick: Lean OKC
Total: 220 (Lean Over – 225)
Predicted Score: OKC 107 – MIA 118
IND (-3) at HOU (3)
Pick: Lean HOU
Total: 238.5 (Lean Over – 239)
Predicted Score: IND 120 – HOU 119
NOP (3) at SAS (-3)
Pick: Lean NOP
Total: 238 (Lean Over – 242)
Predicted Score: NOP 120 – SAS 122
BOS (-9) at SAC (9)
Pick: Lean BOS
Total: 224 (Lean Under – 222)
Predicted Score: BOS 116 – SAC 106
Washington Capitals (130) at Carolina Hurricanes (-150)
Pick: Bet $10 Carolina
Notes: The Capitals are coming off a blowout win yesterday. It was their 4th win in 5 games and their 3rd road win in the past 10 days.
They head into Carolina where the Hurricanes are 23-4-2 this season.
Carolina is coming off a loss to the Maple Leafs. It was their second consecutive loss – both on the road.
It’s hard to fade a team like Washington – especially getting a plus line.
But I like the line movement here and the metrics say that Carolina should have the probability here – if I squint at a few decimal points.
$10 bet on the Hurricanes.
Philadelphia Flyers (100) at Ottawa Senators (-120)
Pick: Lean Ottawa
Boston Bruins (-125) at Winnipeg Jets (110)
Pick: Lean Boston
Buffalo Sabres (280) at Calgary Flames (-340)
Pick: Lean Calgary
Florida Panthers (-215) at Anaheim Ducks (185)
Pick: Lean Florida
Colorado Avalanche (-245) at San Jose Sharks (205)
Pick: Lean Colorado
