Celtics @ Cavs
After defeating the Cavaliers on Wednesday, the Celtics travel to Cleveland for a rematch.
Tatum led Boston to victory in that matchup, scoring 41 points in 36 minutes. While it was not the outcome Cavalier fans were hoping for, it should give them confidence that their team can run with the top dog in the East.
After losing by four in Boston, the Cavs will certainly be looking for a win in this one playing at home. Mitchell and Garland were responsible for 73 of Cleveland’s 113 points, so they will need their frontcourt to participate more in the scoring to give them a chance at a W.
While Clevland should be able to pick up the win, this spread is far too large. It should be another tight game, and it is improbable the Cavs will cover 7 points.
Boston +6.5 (-110) Evan Mobley Over 16.5 Points (-113)
New Orleans @ Sacramento
Sacramento’s five-game winning streak game to an end Saturday against the Timberwolves. The back-to-back games proved too much for the Kings, but they will bounce back tonight hosting the Pelicans.
Given all the injuries New Orleans has sustained, it is strange to see the Kings as just a five-point favorite at home.
Fox is questionable, but we’ve learned this season, questionable means probable. However, even without their point guard, Sacramento should still be able to handle this mangled New Orleans team.
Sacramento -5 (-110)
The one good thing about seeing so many injuries on the New Orleans side is it almost guarantees an over on McCollum point prop.
CJ McCollum Over 22.5 Points (-110)
Despite the shifts seen in New Orleans’ starting five, McCollum’s prop barely moves. However, the same cannot be said for Brandon Ingram; after some hot games, his line has moved almost five points. He should have a solid showing tonight, but 28 is too much to ask for from the forward.
Brandon Ingram Under 27.5 (-125)
