dallas @ washington
april 2nd 10:00am
The Dallas Mavericks resume their four-game road trip when they take on the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena on Saturday morning.
The Mavericks opened their trek with a convincing 120-112 victory in Cleveland in a clash they were favoured to win.
Having now registering three consecutive wins thanks an offensive barrage of points, the Mavericks have climbed to third in the conference and will be looking to hold fort against a Wizards team which has won three of its last four.
The problem for Washington will be how it handles this strong Dallas defence, which has been in-sync over the last month.
Add in an offence which has been piling on the points and it spells danger for the Wizards.
Washington has let through at least 110 points in six out of its last nine games, so expect Luka Doncic to get off the leash.
This should be another road victory for Dallas.
Suggested Bet: Dallas Mavericks -8.5 at $1.91
indiana @ boston
april 2nd 10:30am
Boston could be set for a danger game when Indiana rolls into TD Garden.
The last time these two teams played it was the Pacers coming away with a 128-107 win after controlling the game from the onset.
It was a dominant display by Indiana, but the respective seasons for both teams have taken completely different paths.
Indiana looks as though it has well and truly put the white flag up on 2021/22, while the Celtics have everything to play for.
Celtics are going to take full advantage and this has the makings of the perfect “get right” game right before the end of the regular season as Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown get their touch heading into playoffs.
Suggested Bet: Boston Celtics -14.5 at $1.90
la clippers @ milwaukee
april 2nd 11:00am
The LA Clippers hit the road for a trek to the Fiserv Forum when they get set to play the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.
The Clippers play on the quick back-up and will have no time to dwell on their 135-130 overtime loss to Chicago with another monumental task in front of them.
The Bucks came up huge on the road against Brooklyn with an epic 120-119 overtime win, which saw Giannis go full beast mode with 44 points, 14 rebounds and six assists.
The win was another feather in the Bucks’ cap this week after they slipped past the 76ers 118-116 on the road.
Milwaukee is playing inspired basketball at the minute and Giannis looks unstoppable.
With a healthy roster, the championship defence looks on track.
Bucks to get it done by covering the spread here.
Suggested Bet: Milwaukee Bucks -7.5 at $1.89
portland @ san antonio
april 2nd 11:30am
San Antonio Spurs (31-45) will attempt to worsen the five-game losing tally bestowed upon Portland when the teams go head to head on Saturday morning.
The Trailblazers are coming off a 117-107 loss to New Orleans as their season continues its downward spiral to the bottom of the Eastern standings, while the Spurs come off a gut-wrenching 112-111 loss to Memphis.
Portland has now lost nine of its last 10 games on the road and this trip to AT&T Centre is not exactly roses and rainbows.
Having one of the worst defensive units in the league does not bode well against a Spurs team which has looked viciously dangerous on offence in the last month.
San Antonio is scoring more than 113 points per game, while making 47 percent of their shots at home and that is a big danger sign for Portland.
This one could get out of hand as Dejounte Murray looks to sail on with his purple patch of form.
Suggested Bet: San Antonio -14.5 at $1.91
