NBA Hit or Miss April 4th, 2019

Let's get back on track.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Philadelphia 76ers

Spread: Bucks -4.5

O/U: 230.5

The Bucks are one of the better teams ATS so far this season with an overall record of 46-29-3 and 23-15-2 ATS on the road. The Sixers have not been great this year ATS with an underwhelming record of 36-42. The Sixers have multiple key players who are questionable for tonight and I think at this point in the season they are more inclined to sit and rest for the playoffs. Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid and JJ Reddick are all questionable for tonight and that is too much offense the rest of the team can’t replace. The Bucks are also the 3rd best field goal shooting team in the NBA with a 47.6% and they are the best total rebounding team in the league with 49.6. I like for the Bucks to both win and cover tonight with the Sixers being short handed.  

MY PICKS

Spread: Bucks -4.5

O/U: Over 230.5

Winner: Milwaukee Bucks

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Sacramento Kings

Spread: Kings -9.5

O/U: 228.5

I am not going to lie, there is not a single stat I can give you to say the Cavaliers are going to keep this game close. But like I say all the time, the spread is just too large for these two teams. In the NBA any team can win on any given night and any team can challenge the other. I just think that 9.5 points is going to end up being too many points and the Cavs are going to score enough to not get completely embarrassed.

MY PICKS

Spread: Cavs +9.5

O/U: Under 228.5

Winner: Sacramento Kings

Golden State Warriors @ Los Angeles Lakers

Spread: Warriors -13.0

O/U: 227.5

The Warriors are the one team that it doesn’t matter how big the spread is I am riding with them. Especially when they are playing a Lakers team who are sitting most of their team. I say this all the time but the Warriors are flat out the best shooting team in the NBA bar none. They are first in field goal percentage shooting 49% as a team and 3rd in 3 point percentage at 38.3%. They also lead the league in assist per game because they have so much talent that everybody trust each other out there and no one can stop them. There is nothing the Laker will be able to throw at them tonight to even keep this game close. Take the Warriors to cover and win.
