indiana @ san antonio

march 13th 12:00pm

The Indiana Pacers (22-45) battle the San Antonio Spurs (25-41) in an inter-conference battle on Sunday.

The Pacers were dealt a home loss by the Cavaliers in their previous action, while the Spurs were defeated by the Raptors in their previous game.

The Pacers registered a 131-118 home win in the lone meeting this season the last time these teams went head to head, so there has to be some credence paid to to that victory. 

San Antonio, however, has showed good improvement in the second half of the season. 

The Spurs will have plenty of opportunity on the offensive end to post a big score thanks to a leaky Pacers defence. 

They have given up 133 and 127 points respectively in their last two games against the Wizards and Cavs. 

Going wth the Spurs to get the job done and cover the spread. 

Suggested Bet: San Antonio -5.5 at $1.90

cleveland @ chicago

march 13th 12:00pm

Cleveland attempts to win three in a row when it travels to United Center for a clash against Chicago. 

Both teams have well and truly surprised the league with their performances this year and are on track for playoffs. 

The Cavaliers and Bulls have shared the honours in the season series this year. 

Cleveland won the first battle, but the Bulls got their revenge in game two back in January. 

This is going to be a great battle between two star players in Darius Garland and DeMar DeRozan. 

Garland and DeRozan have been amazing for their respective teams this season. 

Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic will provide support for DeRozan and it is the Bulls who look to have a few more match winners in their squad. 

Siding with the home team. 

Suggested Bet: Chicago -2.5 at $1.91

milwaukee @ golden state

march 13th 12:30pm

Two NBA heavyweights meet when the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks do battle from Chase Center on Sunday afternoon.

In a big game that pits the big stars of the league against each other, it is the Bucks who are slightly favoured to get the road win as the $1.87 favourites. 

The Warriors might very well have hit a bit of speed bump over the last month or so, but back-to-back wins coming into this contest should have the mojo back up. 

Stephen Curry was back to this best in the 113-102 win over Denver on Friday. 

The Warriors will still be without their champion defensive wall in Draymond Green, but there has been a bit to like about what they have done over the last week. 

But the Bucks are different beast. 

Milwaukee is scoring a barrage of points in most games having netted at least 120 points in all six games in this winning streak including 132 against the Suns.

This is key, as the Warriors have squandered an average of 115 points in their last five games without Green. 

For all the good the Warriors have done in the last two fixtures, this is likely going to be a thud back to earth. 

Suggested Bet: Milwaukee -1 at $1.89

toronto @ denver

march 13th 1:00pm

The Denver Nuggets (40-27) will host the Toronto Raptors (35-30) on Saturday night.

Denver took the only head-to-head matchup so far this season between the two teams with a 110-109 winning result as a 5.5-point road underdog on February 12. 

Given the way Nikola Jokic has been playing, the task ahead for Toronto looks gigantic, quite literally speaking. 

Jokic’s strength and huge frame make him a nightmare to match up on and he is on course for another MVP title. 

Denver struggled to have a safeguard for Stephen Curry on Friday, but there is no one in this Raptors team of that ilk to worry about here. 

The Raptors are playing back-to-back road games, and, despite looking fantastic against Phoenix, this might be a bridge too far on jaded legs. 

Suggested Bet: Denver -5.5 at $1.91
