It’s a huge day of NBA Odds, & after a 2-0 on Tuesday, I’m back to see if I can continue to see green. I have 2 more NBA Picks for you, so get in on the ground floor of this streak, & tail along.
Heat vs. Celtics
The Boston Celtics have been one of the crazier stories that not many people are talking about, but they are about to make the playoffs in the East after looking like they would be tanking for the next two or three years at least. They have another shot at securing that 8th spot in the East tonight at home against the Heat. The NBA odds have the Celtics as favorites in this one at -5, but I am a bit more focused on the total for this game, as it sits at 201 points.
The total opened a lot lower last night when the line came out at 198 ½, but even at 201, it still looks like a nice play to take the over. The Heat have been playing better recently and even though they play at an extremely slow pace, their scoring and efficiency is still very good in March. Miami has lost two in a row after that bad loss last night to the Bucks, but still this month they are averaging 100 points per game.
The Celtics on the other hand haven’t been as good on offense, but their defense is what is keeping them out of the sleeper discussion. In their last four games the Celtics have given up 105 points per game, and with all of this combined, the over is the play. The Celtics have cashed the over at 23-8-1 in their last 32 games as favorites, and they are 18-7-1 cashing the over in their last 26 games as home favorites.

Kings vs. Suns
The Kings are coming off a tough win against the Sixers last night, and now they have to travel from Sac-town to Phoenix for a game tonight with the Suns. The NBA Odds have the line in favor of the Suns at -8, however the more interesting line has to be the total once again at 210 ½. With the Kings coming off the back to back, and with the Suns playing at an extremely fast pace, I don’t see why this total isn’t 215 or higher.
Plus good news for the Suns tonight is they could get back Brandon Knight after he badly sprained his ankle a few weeks ago. His presence plays on both ends, but his quickness and playmaking ability is another factor that could really help the over tonight.
The over is 9-2 in the Kings last 11 games and the over is 4-1 in the Kings last five games on no rest. On top of that, the over has cashed in the last six games in a row for the Kings on the road, and in six of their last eight games as underdogs. Take the over in this late game tonight as your NBA pick.
