Friday March 26: NBA Best Bets Today, Picks & Predictions
The Bucks just held off a big Celtics comeback earlier this week, and Boston was active at the trade deadline, bringing in Evan Fournier from Orlando and swapping out center Daniel Theis for Moe Wagner. It's unlikely Fournier or Wagner will be available for this game just one day after the deadline, so the Celtics will be playing shorthanded and on the road once again in Milwaukee. The Bucks being favored while also having plus odds on the point spread are worth taking here.
The pick: Bucks -6 (+100, FoxBet)
The Nuggets are another team that shook things up at the deadline, sending out their longest-tenured player in Gary Harris in a deal that will bring back Aaron Gordon. Social-media reaction from the other Nuggets players has made clear how much they didn't want to lose Harris, and at times that kind of emotional hangover can drag a couple days past the deadline, as well as the fact that Gordon probably won't be ready to play yet. New Orleans at home makes sense as the pick for this game.
The pick: Pelicans ML (+110, William Hill)
The Warriors have lost three games in a row with Stephen Curry sidelined, and he looks to be out for at least a couple more games. The Hawks have lost their last two following their eight-game win streak after they replaced Lloyd Pierce with Nate McMillan as head coach. One of these teams has to win, and at home coming off a disappointing loss to Sacramento, the Warriors are due for a bounceback.
The pick: Warriors ML (+198, FanDuel)
