Here is what the data is telling us for tonight's NBA games โฌ


Thunder @ Raptors


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Thunder at the moneyline with William Hill Sportsbook (+530)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 2.9% edge on the sportsbook's odds.

Dimers does not shy away from making the big calls. When our data tells us something, we respect it. It's telling us that the Thunder at +530 are a chance here against the Raps.

Toronto were fined yesterday by the league for irregular injury reporting regarding their roster. For the layman, that means they've been fined $25K because they're trying to tank. The Raptors failed to hand in their injury report last night but it is believed Gary Trent Jr and Fred VanVleet could be missing.

We know the Thunder are on a tank mission of their own - which is being executed perfectly by GM Sam Presti - but the Thunder are bound to win at least one game before the end of the season. This might be the time.

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.

Kings @ Mavericks


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Sacramento Kings at the spread with PointsBet (+100)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 52.9% probability

The Kings, so long the NBA's biggest dumpster fire, has been had that fire reignited in April with nine straight losses. A healthy points spread is on offer here against the Mavs who are not exactly reaching the heights many predicted for them at the start of the season, winning only two from their past six. Sacramento are worth the value here with enough points at the spread to make us feel comfortable, even if they were to lose for the tenth time.

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

Timberwolves @ Clippers

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Total points UNDER 234.5 with BetMGM (-105)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 52.1% probability

With Kawhi Leonard still listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Timberwolves, the Clippers could be lacking offensive power, just like they have in their past two games that have seen them average an uncharacteristic 101.5 points (compared with a season average of 114.8). Our data model is anticipating an Under play here.
