It’s a nice slate of NBA action on Sunday with a ton of games all over the day. Even with some big NCAA Tournament games today too, the NBA is red hot with value and our handicappers are ready to release their best NBA Picks of the day.

Heat vs. Celtics

These two teams could match up in the playoffs depending on how things fall over the final few weeks of the season, but the Celtics have won all three meetings this season so far and they are solid NBA Odds favorites of -5 on Sunday with a total of 210. So far the total has been going up since it opened last night and that could be one of the indicators to bet the over.

Line movement isn’t a sure indicator that the sharps are on the side of the over. However, the advanced analytics for these two teams over the last 10 days say that the over could be the play.

Since March 15th, the Heat and Celtics both rank in the top 12 teams in pace, as both combined are averaging over 100 possessions per game in their last five or six games. While it hasn’t helped either cash the over to date during that stretch, playing against one another in this early afternoon game will easily lead to the over being in play.

While both team’s defenses have been good lately, look for this one to be a bit faster in pace and the over to be the play.

Grizzlies vs. Warriors

Not too many people give the Warriors credit for being a great defensive team, but this game is absolutely between two good defensive teams. However, Marc Gasol’s status is in question, so while I would love to take the points both SU and in a teaser, the better play might be the under in this early evening game.

These two teams are a combined 1-8-1 in their last five games cashing the under and even if Gasol misses tonight, the Grizzlies will be able to protect the rim well enough without him, but their offense might suffer a ton.

Without Gasol on the court this year, the Grizzlies are averaging five fewer points per 100 possessions and against a strong defensive team like Golden State, they may be held to less than100 points this evening.

If that is the case, look for the under to be a fantastic play for your NBA Picks on Sunday.
