Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat

Both of these teams are on a back-to-back—the Bulls got blown out by Philadelphia, and the Heat won at home against Orlando. Bulls head coach Billy Donovan held back nothing after the game as he admonished his team for quitting on defense. As the season has progressed, this Bulls team has done well bouncing back from bad losses and generally responded well to Donovan when he's picked his spots to be critical. On paper, the Heat are the much better team, but this is a chance for the Bulls to prove they should be taken seriously as playoff contenders.

Orlando Magic vs. San Antonio Spurs

It's not often that you get plus odds on the favored team in a matchup. The Spurs were one of the teams that got a head start on the second half of the season in a makeup game with the Mavericks, which they lost. At home against an extremely shorthanded Magic team, they have an opportunity to bounce back in a major way. The spread is high at -7, but they should be able to handle Orlando.

The pick: Spurs -7 @ +100 (Click To Bet)

Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz

Jordan Clarkson's three-point shooting cooled off a little bit before the All-Star break, but on the season he's hitting 3.2 per game and shooting 37 percent from beyond the arc. Four is the lowest number of threes you can get plus odds for him on FanDuel—if you want to get a little more ambitious, he's +400 to hit five or more threes, but four is a safer pick for the value.

The pick: Jordan Clarkson 4+ made threes @ +168 (Click To Bet)
