This weekend is jam-packed with NBA betting value ... just look at the odds on the board for the upcoming matchups!

Wizards at Raptors

The Wizards are coming off of a disappointing loss to the Miami Heat, in which they got down 25-points in the first half but stormed all the way back just to miss a game-tying shot in the final seconds. One of the things learned after that game is that Wizards point guard John Wall is questionable to play because of fluid in his knee. The Wizards played the Raptors two Sundays ago without John Wall and won that game handily 107-96. Bradley Beal was the difference maker in that game as he had a season high 38 points in that Wizards win. Beal will look to continue his hot shooting from deep and from inside the paint. Beal has changed his game drastically by improving his ball-handling, which has allowed the him to get to the basket and finish at the rim. Beal is shooting 86% on all shots from zero to three feet from the basket.

 

Toronto is still figuring out how they want to play as a team. They started the season as a 3-point gunning team that was following along in the whole pace and space movement, but now have reverted back to the natural skill set of DeMar DeRozan, which is the mid-range jumper. The Raptors are too reliant on just DeRozan and Lowry to get a lot of their offensive production and the Wizards have enough defensive prowess with Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre on the wing to shut down a two-man operation.

Pistons at Timberwolves

Jimmy Butler has settled any debate about the hierarchy in the Minnesota offense. Butler has settled in as an ancillary option in Minnesota, and allowed the young stars, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns dominate the ball on offense. Butler is fifth among Wolves player in usage rate at 19.7%, which means that he is getting the ball much less than he did last season in Chicago where he had a usage rate of 26.5%. Butler is reverting back to his early days in Chicago where he was a critical role player behind Derrick Rose.

Tobias Harris is quickly turning into one of the most efficient players in the NBA, and that has to do with his career high 48.9% shooting from 3-point range on a high volume amount of 6.1 attempts per game. Add that on top of Harris’ already adept soft touch around the basket, and the NBA has a throwback player with an inside-out game of power forwards past.

The Pistons won the first meeting 122-101, but that was without Jimmy Butler who will be key to slowing down Harris.
