Tuesday’s NBA Acca

Milwaukee Bucks -10.5

New York Knicks +4.5

Toronto Raptors +16.5

Houston Rockets +10.5

Oklahoma City Thunder -2.5

 

Milwaukee Bucks @ Washington Wizards (Wed 0000 BST)

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton will be key players to watch for As the Milwaukee Bucks face the Washington Wizards. At the time of writing, they're expected to play.

Giannis is having another superb season and stands a chance of winning his third MVP trophy.

Khris Middleton is back from an ankle injury and he’s been phenomenal, averaging around 18 points per game while shooting 48% from the field.

The Wizards have looked better with Jordan Poole and Kyle Kuzma on the floor, but the latter is ruled out due to an ankle injury. The Bucks should take this game comfortably.

Tip: Milwaukee Bucks +10.5


New York Knicks @ Miami Heat (Wed 00:30 BST)

As the New York Knicks battle to grab third spot in the Eastern Conference, they come face to face with Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat.

Butler is averaging 21 points this season while shooting 50% from the field. The Heat are in seventh but remain a playoff threat to any team around this time of year.

The Knicks have their own lethal weapon in the form of Jalen Brunson. He's having an amazing year and had a career night against the San Antonio Spurs, finishing with 61 points. As an individual matchup, he's a nightmare to guard.

This deep New York Knicks team ranks as a threat in the East and even with OG Anunoby out, the visitors should keep this one close.

Tip: New York Knicks +4.5

 

Houston Rockets @ Minnesota Timberwolves (Wed 01:00 BST)

The Houston Rockets head to Minnesota to face the Timberwolves as they seek to proclaim their spot in the play-in tournament. 

Highlight reel Anthony Edwards, 22, is playing out of his skin, leading the team to 51 wins as he averages 26 points per game.

On the other hand, Houston's Jalen Green is also having a great season. Through March, Green averaged 30 points per game. The matchup will be very close and entertaining.

As red-hot as the Wolves have been, the spread opened at -8 which seems a lot of wiggle room to hand the surging Rockets.

Tip: Houston Rockets +10.5


Los Angeles Lakers @ Toronto Raptors (Wed 00:00 BST)

King James heads towards the cold in Toronto after slaughtering the Brooklyn Nets, becoming the second player alongside Michael Jordan to score 40+ points at age 39.

This should be an easy match-up for the Lakers, but the young Toronto Raptors will be fighting hard to break their thirteen-game losing streak.

It all depends on whether the Lakers will take this young team seriously and we're not convinced they will.

James and Anthony Davis could sit out, while the returning RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley will add a scoring punch for the hosts.

Tip: Toronto Raptors +16.5


Oklahoma City Thunder @ Philadelphia 76ers (Wed 00:30 BST)

The youngest team in the NBA, the Oklahoma City Thunder, face the veteran Phildephia 76ers.

This should be a fun match-up with MVP candidate, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, against the young, captivating Tyrese Maxey.

Both players are mesmerising, but OKC is first in the Western Conference OKC, while the eighth-seed 76ers have been hit-and-miss.

Main man Joel Embiid averaged 35 points per game, the highest in the league this season, before going out with a meniscus injury. He's expected to be out again this evening.

Regardless, OKC are so talented that if the team gets hot, somebody will need a bucket of water to cool these savages off. This game has blowout potential if the visitors take it seriously.

Tip: Oklahoma City Thunder -2.5
