Check out the Betway Insider's NBA picks and predictions page for tips throughout the 2020-21 NBA season.
Dallas Mavericks (-1.5) vs Boston Celtics
The Mavericks are 9-5 since the end of February and their last three wins have all come by a margin of at least 20 points.
Dallas has a 9-7 record against Eastern Conference opponents and should earn another win over the Celtics, who are seventh in the East with a 23-24 record.
Boston has lost seven of its 11 games since the All-Star break and could be without star shooting guard Jaylen Brown for a fourth consecutive game as he is questionable with a hip injury.
Toronto Raptors (-7.5) vs Oklahoma City Thunder
This looks to be a close match-up on paper, with the Raptors and Thunder having both lost three games in a row.
Oklahoma City’s line-up has been hit badly by injuries, however, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Luguentz Dort and Darius Bazley – their three leaders in minutes this season – all out for this game.
The Raptors have had a disappointing season but they are the much healthier team and should comfortably beat the Thunder’s backups.
Sacramento Kings (+2.5) vs San Antonio Spurs
The Kings have been on a tear since the All-Star break, winning eight of 11 games, including each of their last five.
Sacramento beat San Antonio 132-115 on Monday night and is again worth backing in this rematch on Wednesday.
The Spurs have lost five of their last six games and they’re only 11-14 at home this season, compared to 12-7 on the road.
Phoenix Suns (-6.5) vs Chicago Bulls
Phoenix is second in the West with a 32-14 record and has won 12 of its last 15 games.
The Suns rank third in the NBA in net rating and they’re 16-8 at home this season.
The Bulls have been in a slump since All-Star Weekend, losing eight of 11. Their last four games have all been defeats by margins of at least nine points, and they’re just 10-15 against teams from the West this season.
