Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA games ⏬


Jazz @ Lakers


BET: 🔥 Los Angeles Lakers at the spread with William Hill Sportsbook (-110)

📈 55.7% probability

The Lakers are already hobbled - we know that - but now the Jazz have some concerns of their own with Donovan Mitchell going down for Utah in their game against the Pacers yesterday. It's horrible to see someone of Mitchell's calibre out, and it will force a reshuffle for the Jazz. Our projection analysis sees the Lakers capitalizing on an opportunity in this one at the points spread.

For a play like this, it's hard to look past this offer from William Hill Sportsbook who are giving new customers in certain states a RISK-FREE bet up to $2021 - see if your state is one of them here. Basically, you can deposit as much or as little as you like (we recommend around $50) and then place your bet on our play. If we get it right, you cash in! If not, that's okay - they'll give you your money back to use again on another bet.

Warriors @ Celtics


BET: 🔥 Warriors at the moneyline with PointsBet (+160)

📈 3.5% edge on the sportsbooks

Who's betting against Steph Curry right now? Not us, that's for sure. The two-time MVP is on a TEAR right now, scoring 30+ points in nine consecutive games. The Warriors are riding the wave of Curry's heat, on a four game winning streak. The +160 on offer here at the time of publishing is juicy for a man ON FIRE.

But more than just that, when PointsBet is offering free bets like they are in the offer below, why wouldn't you take advantage!?

Pistons @ Wizards

BET: 🔥 Washington Wizards at the spread with BetMGM (-105)

📈 51.5% probability

Beal and Westbrook are running hot right now. With the Wizards now standing a legitimate chance to land a play-in spot for the postseason, we can't see anything but full pedal to the metal in this one as the Wiz meet an up-and-down Pistons unit.
