The NBA slate for Tuesday's action features some very interesting matchups that could turn out to be very profitable. In this article, our expert NBA capper provides his take on where you will find the best value.

Bucks vs Cavaliers

The Milwaukee Bucks finally made their strategic move to put themselves in a better position to compete with the Cavaliers when they traded away a first-round pick and Greg Monroe to get their point guard of the future, Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe’s arrival will certainly take a lot of the pressure off of Giannis in terms of ball-handling and running the team. Now Giannis will be able to focus much more on being the dominant off-ball slasher that he is. Bledsoe will certainly not be playing in this game, as the trade just happened this morning and he has not played in two weeks since being told to stay away from the Phoenix Suns.

The Cavs already beat Milwaukee once this season in a thrilling, closely contested game. That seems like it was ages ago because it was before the Cavaliers team seemingly imploded on the defensive end. Cleveland has lost four of their last five games, including an embarrassing loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. The Cavs are giving up an astonishing 113 points per game and as a team are just lacking the overall effort needed to compete on a nightly basis. It’s not as if the Cavs players don’t want to give the effort, it’s probably that they can’t at this point. The Cavaliers are the oldest team in the NBA with an average age of 30.1 years old.

One of the advantages that an older and slower team has when playing against the Bucks is the fact that you don’t have to spread your defense too thin because of the Bucks’ lacking of outside shooting. Cleveland should be able to drive Bucks players off of the 3-point line and keep Giannis outside the paint.

 Hornets vs Knicks

Kristaps Porzingis is turning into an actual basketball unicorn, right before our very eyes and his solid play has increased the level expectations and excitement coming out of Madison Square Garden. Just within the last week, Porzingis has had games of 36, 38, and 40 points respectively, all NY wins.

The Hornets have their own budding superstar in Kemba Walker and he has lead the Hornets to a good start to their season and a .500 record through 10 games. Walker is eating opposing defenses alive with his dynamic dribbling display and uncanny shot-making ability. The Hornets struggle offensively as a team, but that is ok when you literally have a one-man show who can go out and get a bucket at any given moment.

Still the staple of the Hornets team is their defense, which is now anchored by Dwight Howard and he does a fantastic job of contesting opponents shots at the rim and clearing the ball on the defensive glass. Howard may finally be tio the point in his career why he’s starting to realize that he can impact basketball games way more with his running, rebounding, and jumping skills as opposed to demanding the ball in the post as he did in previous stops. If the Hornets are able to get solid contributions from some of their younger wing players then they will definitely beat the Knicks on the road.

Mavericks vs Wizards

The Wizards have been one of the more frustrating teams in the NBA this year because of the team's level of expectation for themselves entering this year. Washington was one game away from the conference finals last year, but have come out and played inconsistent against certain teams. You can’t play with the Golden State’s of the world and lose to the Suns and Lakers in the same week. The outcome of this game will be largely dictated by if John Wall is able to play, and as someone with a close relationship with many on the Wizards staff, I would say that it’s safe to assume that John Wall will not play tonight. The Wizards as a team are usually conservative when it comes to protecting their star players and with Washington in the middle of a 4-game home stretch, will probably use this time for Wall to heal and rehab his sprained shoulder.

The thing about the Wizards is that they are a completely different team when John Wall is not on the court and the Maverick’s young point guard, Dennis Smith may see an opportunity to have himself a good game.

Look for the Maverick to stay competitive in this game, as they love coming to D.C. and have won their last eight straight against the Wizards in D.C.

Sixers vs Jazz

The world was robbed of our first look at Joel Embiid and Rudy Gobert matching up against one another because the Sixers decided to rest Embiid. The Jazz are one of the league’s best defensive teams and will certainly give a young Philly squad problems when it comes to scoring the basketball. Combine that with the fact that the Sixers will be playing without their best offensive player, and things could get real ugly for the Sixers in Utah. I would not expect them to be able to score enough points on a rangy Jazz defense to win this game.
