Celtics vs. Mavericks prediction and evaluation

It is a perfect purchase level for the Celtics, who shocked many throughout the league with Monday’s 14-point loss to the Bulls to cap off a three-game highway journey. Even with this consequence, this line is a bit dismissive of this crew’s dominance.

Previous to Monday’s loss, Boston had gained 9 in a row and outscored opponents by 11.4 factors per recreation throughout that streak. It is no coincidence: the C’s rank third in web rating (+6.5) all season and have gained by 5 factors or extra in 10 of 17 video games this season.

The Mavericks have proven flashes of long-term upside with Luka Doncic in MVP kind, however they’ve additionally misplaced to the Rockets and Nuggets with out Nikola Jokic over the previous week – dragging their file to a worst NBA 4- 11-1 ATS. Now isn’t the time to anticipate that to vary towards among the best within the league.

Prediction and evaluation of raptors towards nets

It isn’t a lot about Brooklyn’s embarrassing loss on Tuesday to a Sixers facet lacking its prime three scorers, although that alone is sufficient to warrant concern right here. If something, it is merely a brutal place for the Nets in a season that has not often gone down.

It is laborious sufficient to win in Toronto, the place the Raptors personal a stellar dwelling file of 5-2 ATS this yr – tied for third-best within the NBA – and have outscored groups by 6, 4 factors per recreation in these video games. It is even more durable to do it on the second night time of a back-to-back, a one-day worldwide journey that the NBA tends to restrict to round 10 occasions a yr, on common.

As you’ll be able to think about, this typically does not go properly. Groups there are 14-21-1 ATS (40%) the previous 5 seasons, and the Nets are the primary such crew to cope with that this yr. Good luck with that one.

Bucks vs Bulls Prediction and Evaluation

Few groups have dominated a sequence just like the Bucks towards the Bulls, who’ve struggled to maintain up when these groups face off.

Since Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first All-Star marketing campaign in 2016-17, Milwaukee is 18-10 towards its division rival with a stellar 23-5 file. It isn’t like these video games have been notably shut: The Bucks have edged Chicago by 11.5 factors on common, with greater than half of these 28 video games determined by 13 or extra factors of their favor.

That features three straight wins by greater than 16 factors on this streak relationship again to final season, when the Bulls had been really among the many finest groups within the NBA for a lot of the yr. That hasn’t been the case this season, and I do not see their fortunes altering on this recreation both.
