Pick Summary

Timberwolves vs. Hawks: Under 244.5 (-110) at Caesars

Bucks vs. Kings: Sacramento Kings +2 (-110) at Caesars  

Suns vs. Warriors: Over 226 (-110) at Caesars 

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Atlanta Hawks

Monday, March 13, 2023 – 07:30 PM EDT at State Farm Arena

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks are both 34-34 this season. Both teams will be trying to make a push to avoid the Play-In tournament. The Hawks have won five games in a row against the Minnesota Timberwolves. With the home-court advantage on their side, can the Hawks make it six wins in a row tonight? 

Why Did the Books Post this Total So High? 

The OddsTrader A.I. generated model has the Atlanta Hawks defeating the Minnesota Timberwolves 120-114. The total for this game is set at 244.5. This is the highest total on the board tonight. The computer has found a nice 10.5-point edge for us to bet. 

NBA Pick: Under 244.5 (-110) at Caesars  

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Sacramento Kings

Monday, March 13, 2023 – 10:00 PM EDT at Golden 1 Center

The Sacramento Kings face the top team in the Eastern Conference tonight when they host the Milwaukee Bucks. Tonight will be the second in a three-game road trip for the Bucks. The Bucks lost their most recent game 125-116 in overtime to the Golden State Warriors. In that game, Milwaukee was missing their best player, Giannis Antetokounmpo. 

Milwaukee has not lost back-to-back games since January 14th. The Kings will try to achieve that tough task against Milwaukee tonight. The Kings are playing well, however. The Kings have won eight of their last nine games. The Kings traveled down to Phoenix to beat the Suns 128-119 on Saturday night. The Kings will try to keep their good streak going tonight. 

Who Will Win this Pivotal Game? 

Our OddsTrader A.I. prediction has the final score of this game at 122-119 in favor of the Sacramento Kings. Obviously, this projection does bode well for betting on the Kings as underdogs. 

Our second pick has a 5.5-point edge. That is the type of edge we are looking for when running NBA models. The OddsTrader A.I. prediction has this game as a Kings win and the books are currently listing this game with the Milwaukee Bucks being favored. 

NBA Pick: Sacramento Kings +2 (-110) at Caesars

Phoenix Suns vs. Golden State Warriors

Monday, March 13, 2023 – 10:00 PM EDT at Chase Center

Two teams with championship aspirations will take the court in San Francisco tonight when the Golden State Warriors face the Phoenix Suns. The teams are fighting for position in the Western Conference and we should expect a spirited affair as these teams try to move up the standings. 

The Golden State Warriors are coming off an inspiring overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Phoenix Suns are coming off a tough loss to the Sacramento Kings. This game will be televised on ESPN and we should expect a great effort from both teams. 

Why Did the Books Post this Total So High? 

On Saturday night against the Bucks, the Warriors’ game went under even though it went to overtime. The books are setting these totals incredibly high after getting punished on overs earlier in the year. The computer algorithm has spotted a defect in the totals of the books. 

Our computer algorithm has projected the final score of this game to be 115-111 in favor of the Golden State Warriors. The total is set at 236, yet our computer prediction has the game landing at 226. We have a 10-point edge on betting the Over. Bet accordingly; the A.I. has spoken.
