The Utah Jazz travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies tonight. The Grizzlies will be looking to bounce back after a 119-109 loss to the Celtics in Boston.

Will These Teams Put up a Lot of Points Tonight?

San Antonio Spurs vs. Charlotte Hornets

Wednesday, February 15, 2023 – 07:00 PM EST at Spectrum Center

The San Antonio Spurs are a struggling team. The Spurs have lost 13 games in a row. The Charlotte Hornets recently ended their own losing streak. Charlotte ended a seven-game skid with a 144-138 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

The Hornets are coming off one of their best offensive performances this season when they scored 144 points and made 23 pointers while shooting 63.1% from the field. Yet our AI model expects some regression from Charlotte’s torrid shooting

Why Did the Books Post this Total So High?

The Charlotte Hornets average 112.4 points per game, and the San Antonio Spurs average 112.5 points scored per game. However, tonight’s total is 243.5. Our AI prediction has the final score of this game at 121-112 in favor of the Charlotte Hornets.

Our second AI pick has a 10.5-point edge. That is quite significant when running NBA models. The AI has this game at 233 and the books are currently listing this total at 243.5.

Miami Heat vs. Brooklyn Nets

Wednesday, February 15, 2023 – 07:30 PM EST at Barclays Center

The Brooklyn Nets are in 5th place in the Eastern Conference. The Miami Heat are right behind in sixth place. Needless to say, both teams will be gunning for a win tonight. This game could have an impact on which team makes the playoffs, and which team is relegated to the play-in tournament.

Brooklyn has not been the same team lately, however. After losing Kevin Durant they are 6-11. They are currently three and a half games behind the fourth-place Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Nets are looking to begin a new era after the trades of Durant and Kyrie Irving. They now feature Spencer Dinwiddie, Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, and Dorian Finney-Smith. These are all strong players. Brooklyn is still a tough opponent even though they no longer have the same star power.

The Miami Heat’s most recent game was a 112-108 loss at home to the Denver Nuggets. The Heat are struggling with injuries and missed Kyle Lowry, Victor Oladipo, and Tyler Herro in the last game. The Heat are hoping to have Herro back tonight, but he is a game-time decision.

Which Team Will Get the Crucial Win?

The Nets defeated the Heat in Miami 102-101 in January but obviously, the Nets are a much different team now. The Nets will be looking to make the statement that even though they have a new lineup, they are still the same formidable opponent.

Our computer algorithm has projected the final score of this game to be 113-107 in favor of the Brooklyn Nets. With the line set at Brooklyn -1, we have a 5-point edge on betting the Nets to win.

Bet accordingly; the AI has spoken.
