NBA Hit or Miss March 19th, 2019

The hot streak continues!

Los Angeles Lakers @ Milwaukee Bucks

Spread: Bucks -11.0

O/U: 229.0

Both Lebron and Giannis won't be playing in tonight's game, leaving the Lakers shattered. No James, no Ingram, and no Ball. The Bucks should be able to run wild at home. Khris Middleton scores a solid 18 points per game and without Giannis in the lineup, he averages 23.2 ppg. Milwaukee is coming off a very hard loss to the Sixers and will look to regain momentum going into the final games of the season. Like I said in my last Hit or Miss, I am done betting on the Lakers. Now I am going to start betting against them. Take the Bucks to cover in a blowout victory.

MY PICKS:

Spread: Bucks -11.0

O/U: Under 229.0

Winner: Bucks

Philadelphia 76ers @ Charlotte Hornets

Spread: Hornets -1.0

O/U: 223.0

There is no world in which the Hornets should be the favorites against the Sixers. The Sixers just went into Milwaukee and pulled off a very impressive win against the Bucks, who have the best record in the NBA. The Sixers have the 7th best field goal percentage in the league at 47.2%, while the Hornets are at 44.8% (22nd). Kemba Walker is the only person of note in Charlotte. He is willing this team to a playoff spot. Even still, the Sixers have way too much talent for the Hornets to keep up. Since Vegas is giving away points, take the Sixers to cover and win.

MY PICKS:

Spread: Sixers +1.0

O/U: Over 223.0

Winner: Sixers

Brooklyn Nets @ Sacramento Kings

Spread: Kings -3.5

O/U: 233.0

The Kings currently have the 4th best shooting percentage from behind the arc with 37.7%. Sacramento has been a real surprise for me this season. They are in the hunt for a playoff spot and have a very impressive young roster. De'aaron Fox has had a great sophomore campaign, averaging 17 points and 7 assist. He’s the undoubted leader on the court for the Kings. Fun fact, the Kings are top 10 in both steals and turnovers. Since this game is in Sacramento and the Kings are closing in on a playoff spot, I’m taking them to cover tonight.

MY PICKS:

Spread: Kings -3.5

O/U: Under 233.0

Winner: Kings

Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
