  • Cavaliers/Nets – Over 218 (-110)
  • Spurs/Pelicans – Spurs +13 (-110)
  • Thunder/Clippers – Thunder +7 (-110)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 – 07:30 PM EDT at Barclays Center

The Cleveland Cavaliers head to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. The Cavaliers are trying to move into the top four of the standings in the Eastern Conference so they have home court in the first round of the playoffs. The Nets are trying to remain in the top six in the standings to avoid having to participate in the Play-In tournament. Both teams should be giving their all when the teams take the court tonight.

The Cavaliers have won seven of their last 10 games. The Cavaliers are coming off a 117-94 victory over the Washington Wizards. The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Brooklyn Nets the last time they played. The final score was 125-117 in favor of the Nets. Obviously, the Nets look much different now after trading Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Why Did the Books Post This Total So Low?

The OddsTrader A.I. generated model has the final score of the game projected at 115-108 in favor of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers have scored at least 110 points in nine of their last 11 contests.

This does bode well for the Over which is posted at 218. The computer has found a nice 7-point edge for us to bet.

NBA Pick: Over 218 (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

San Antonio Spurs vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 – 08:00 PM EDT at Smoothie King Center

The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off a 117-107 win over the Houston Rockets. The win made the Pelicans 34-37 and they are still alive for the playoffs.

The Pelicans get a chance to beat another Lottery-bound team when they face the San Antonio Spurs tonight. The Spurs had lost two consecutive overtime games before their surprising 126 -118 win over the Atlanta Hawks. The Spurs have been fighting hard in spite of their poor record this season.

Will the Pelicans Cover the Large Spread?

The New Orleans Pelicans are favored by 13 points in tonight’s game. Our OddsTrader A.I. prediction has the final score of this game at 117-110 in favor of the Pelicans. So, while the Spurs do not have the best straight-up record, our algorithm likes them to keep this game close tonight. This projection does bode well for betting on the Spurs.

Our second A.I. pick has a 6-point edge. That is the type of edge we are looking for when running NBA models. With the Spurs being 13-point underdogs, we have an edge when betting on the Spurs tonight.

NBA Pick: Spurs +13 (-110) at Caesars Sportsbook

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Tuesday, March 21, 2023 – 10:30 PM EDT at Arena

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers are fighting for playoff positions. They will face each other in a tough game tonight. The teams are just two and a half games apart in the standings. The Thunder can either close the gap or the Clippers can increase their lead depending on the outcome of tonight’s game.

The Thunder are coming into this game playing well. They have won seven of their last nine games. They would like to continue that streak against one of the NBA’s most talented teams.

Who Will Win This Pivotal Game?

The Thunder have beaten the Clippers two times already this season, but both those games were in Oklahoma City. Now, the Clippers get a chance to protect their home court against their Western Conference rival. We should get full effort from two teams that would greatly benefit from the win.

Our computer algorithm has projected the final score of this game to be 119-116 in favor of the Los Angeles Clippers. With the spread being set at Clippers -7, we have a 4-point edge on betting on the Thunder.

Bet accordingly; the A.I. has spoken.
