NBA Hit or Miss March 20th, 2019

The Kings shouldn’t be allowed to play basketball until next season.  

Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls

Spread: Wizards -2.5

O/U: 231.5

The Washington Wizards travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls tonight. The Wizards have the 8th best shooting percentage in the NBA at 47.0%, while the Bulls shoot 45.5% from the field. The Bulls are also horrendous at home this season with a 8-27 record. With a lack of production at home, there’s little home court advantage for the Bulls. The Wizards are a top 5 team in assists per game, 26.6. This is my lock of the night, the Wizards should win this game with room to spare.

Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers

Spread: 76ers -3.0

O/U: 224.0

Whenever these two teams play each other it’s a war. These games seem to always come down to 1 possession and it is going to be wire to wire. I expect the Celtics to at least cover because they’ve won the past 3 games against Philly. I don’t have them winning tonight because it’s very difficult to beat a team 4 times in a season, especially a team as good as the Sixers. The Celtics have the 6th best three point shooting percentage in the league at 36.4% and have the third third highest free throw percentage at 80.6. The Celtics take advantage of teams at the line and can win games just based on teams making stupid fouls. I like for Boston to cover but I’m still taking the 76ers to win outright.

Spread: Celtics +3.0

O/U: Over 224.0

Winner: 76ers

Utah Jazz @ New York Knicks

Spread: Jazz -12.0

O/U: 209.0

THIS IS MY LOCK OF THE CENTURY! I am going to preach this until I look like a complete dope. The Knicks don’t know how to play basketball and will be blown out again tonight. They are on the back end of their back to back and lost last night to the Raptors by 36--without Kawhi Leonard in the lineup. New York faces another playoff team in the Jazz, who have won 4 straight games and 7 of their last 10. The Jazz have the 2nd best defensive rating in the NBA and the 7th best offensive rating. They are just flat out better than the Knicks, who are the worst team I have ever seen play basketball. Duke would cover this spread in the Garden. Take the Jazz.

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