Pick Summary

  • 76ers vs. Cavaliers: Over 221.5 (-110) at Caesars

  • Mavericks vs. Spurs: Mavericks -5.5 (-110) at Caesars 

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 – 07:30 PM EDT at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse

The Philadelphia 76ers have been on fire. The Sixers have won five straight contests. Their most recent game was an easy 112-93 win over the Washington Wizards on Sunday night. Tonight’s contest marks the beginning of a three-game road trip. 

The Cavaliers are also playing well. The Cavaliers just scored 2 consecutive road wins over the lowly Charlotte Hornets. On Tuesday night, they defeated the Hornets 120-104. The Cavaliers were without Donovan Mitchell and Jarrett Allen in that game. Both players are questionable for tonight’s contest

Why Did the Books Post This Total So Low? 

The OddsTrader A.I. generated model has the final score of the game projected at 114-114. Obviously, the game cannot end in a tie, but this does bode well for the over which is posted at 221.5. The computer has found a nice 6.5-point edge for us to bet. 

NBA Pick: Over 221.5 (-110) at Caesars  

Sacramento Kings vs. Chicago Bulls

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 – 08:00 PM EDT at United Center

The Chicago Bulls are fighting for their playoff lives. The Bulls are in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls have won their last two games and they begin a three-game homestand tonight. The Bulls are home after a successful two-game road trip where they defeated the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets. The Bulls will look to defeat another Western Conference opponent tonight. 

The Sacramento Kings are coming off a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Kings got off to a hot start but we’re not able to hang on to the 15-point first-half lead they built. Sacramento will be looking to bounce back against a Chicago team that has struggled to defend this season. The Kings will need to defend better as well. The 133-124 loss to Milwaukee marks the sixth time this season the Kings have allowed 130 or more points in a game. Sacramento is 1-5 in those games.  

Stick to the Spread

The Sacramento Kings are favored in tonight’s game. Our OddsTrader A.I. prediction has the final score of this game at 120-117 in favor of the Chicago Bulls. Obviously, this projection does bode well for betting on the Bulls. 

Our second A.I. pick has a 4-point edge. That is the type of edge we are looking for when running NBA models. With the Bulls being 1 point underdogs, we have an edge when betting on the Bulls tonight

NBA Pick: Bulls +1 (-110) at Caesars  

Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 – 08:30 PM EDT at AT&T Center

The Dallas Mavericks enter tonight’s game with fellow Texas team, the Spurs, on a three-game losing streak. The Spurs are one of the worst teams in the league. However, they are no pushovers. The Spurs have won four of their last seven games

Dallas lost two games to the Memphis Grizzlies. When they fell on Monday at home 104-88 they were missing Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic from the lineup. Doncic will not play tonight’s game and Kyrie Irving is listed as questionable.

The Mavericks know they need to get a win tonight. The Mavericks are currently in a three-way tie for eighth place in the Western Conference. They are only two games out of sixth place. 6th place is pivotal because you avoid the Play-In tournament

Who Will Win This Pivotal Game? 

Even though Dallas looks to be in a rough patch right now, the San Antonio Spurs are one of the worst teams in the league. The San Antonio Spurs are 18-50 this season. Because the Spurs have been playing well recently, we get a discount for betting on the Mavericks in tonight’s game. 

Our computer algorithm has projected the final score of this game to be 122-113 in favor of the Dallas Mavericks. With the Mavericks being 5.5-point favorites, we have a 3.5-point edge on betting the Mavericks to cover the spread.
