Best NBA Bets Today – March 18
Best NBA Moneyline Today: Philadelphia 76ers ML / Under 232.5 +165 (DraftKings)
The Philadelphia 76ers are playing the Indiana Pacers tonight, and with Joel Embiid pushing for MVP honors, it’s clear that the Sixers will be taking this game seriously. While the Pacers are capable of putting up points, they’ve struggled to do so consistently. As such, we believe that betting on the Sixers winning outright and the total score remaining under 232.5 points is a smart move.
Best NBA Bet Today Under: 236.5 Sacramento Kings at Washington Wizards -110
The Sacramento Kings are traveling to Washington to take on the Wizards. The Kings are the better team on paper, but playing on the road is never easy. We believe that the Kings will be able to limit the Wizards’ offense, and as a result, the game’s total score will stay under 236.5 points.
Utah Jazz +4.5 -110
The Utah Jazz are facing off against the Boston Celtics, and while the Celtics have improved of late, they are still not the same team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last season. Meanwhile, the Jazz are a solid team, and with the Celtics still trying to find their way, we believe that Utah will be able to cover the spread and keep the game close.
Under 117.5 Team Total Memphis Grizzlies -110
The Memphis Grizzlies are facing off against the Golden State Warriors, who have struggled recently due to injuries and suspensions. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies are missing one of their top players, Jaren Jackson Jr., due to injury. This means that both teams are likely to struggle offensively, and we believe that Memphis will score under 117.5 points in this game.
Over 216.5 Miami Heat at Chicago Bulls
The Miami Heat are taking on the Chicago Bulls, and with the total score set at 216.5 points, we believe that the over is the smart play. The Heat have several players capable of putting up big numbers, and the Bulls have a dynamic duo in Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic. As a result, we believe that this game will be a high-scoring affair and will exceed the total score of 216.5 points.
