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


Wizards @ Pistons


BET: πŸ”₯ Wizards at the moneyline with FanDuel Sportsbook (-120)

πŸ“ˆ 59.5% probability

A match between two teams who are struggling overall this season, the 'books have it close with regards to the moneyline odds between the Wizards and the Pistons. A simple eye test, though, says that Washington are superior to the ailing Detroit.

Those same eyes will all be on the status of Bradley Beal once again who seems to be inching closer to a return from injury. Regardless, Russell Westbrook's form is scintillating enough to be the difference according to our data.

76ers @ Cavaliers


BET: πŸ”₯ Cleveland Cavaliers to cover the spread with PointsBet (-110)

πŸ“ˆ 52.3% probability

Sometimes in a season a bad team somehow has the wood over a team that is better than them in every category, and this year that might be the case with the Cavs against the Sixers.

This is the third meeting between the two teams this season with Cleveland currently sitting at 2-0 in the series. Their most recent win against Philly came on February 27 when the Cavs got the W in OT. Sometimes these kinds of things can't be explained; but we're making sure we're jumping on the big points spread tonight.

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

Magic @ Pelicans

BET: πŸ”₯ Orlando Magic at the spread with BetMGM (-135)

πŸ“ˆ 54.6% probability

A couple of days ago I spoke of The Ewing Theory relating to the Magic and their decision to trade pretty much everyone on their team, and so far they are 3-0 ATS since last Thursday's trade deadline. That included a gutsy come-from-behind win against Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers at Staples. This team still isn't great, but they are hard workers with players who are legitimately playing for their livelihoods past this season. Once again, the 'books have them on an inflated points line against a Pelicans team who may be missing Zion Williamson and Lonzo Ball due to injury. Stand up and take notice on this one.
