Jack Green makes his NBA predictions for Wednesday night's games, with four picks against the spread.
Check out the Betway Insider's NBA picks and predictions page for tips throughout the 2020-21 NBA season.
Cleveland Cavaliers (-2.5) vs Detroit Pistons
The Cavaliers have lost two consecutive games to drop to 8-9 for the season but should bounce back against the struggling Pistons.
Detroit are 14th in the Eastern Conference with a 4-13 record and are 1-6 in road games this season.
Ten of the Pistons’ 13 defeats this season have come by a margin of at least six points, so it’s worth backing the Cavs to cover here.
Toronto Raptors (+6) vs Milwaukee Bucks
The Raptors have had a disappointing season so far, but they’ve won five of their last seven and should at least keep it close against the Bucks.
Milwaukee are third in the East with a 10-6 record but are just 3-4 on the road after defeats to the Celtics, Knicks, Heat and Nets.
The Raptors are 5-3 at home and have won four of their last five games in their temporary Tampa home.
Boston Celtics (-3.5) vs San Antonio Spurs
The Celtics have climbed to second in the East, winning seven of their last 10 games to take their record to 10-6.
Their last two wins have been blowouts against the Cavaliers and Bulls, and they should again win comfortably against the Spurs, who are 9-8 and ninth in the West.
San Antonio have been inconsistent this season and have struggled at home, losing five of their eight games to date.
Utah Jazz (-3.5) vs Dallas Mavericks
The Jazz are on a nine-game winning streak following their victory over the Knicks on Tuesday night, and eight of those nine wins have come by double digits.
Fatigue may be a factor for Utah in the second game of a double-header, but they’re still worth backing to beat the Mavericks, who have struggled recently.
Dallas have lost five of their last seven games, with three of those defeats coming by a margin of at least 16 points.
