We are placing our bets with SugarHouse on Wednesday night as they’re offering all new players up to $250 in Free Bets on NBA when they open a new account
Los Angeles Lakers @ Chicago Bulls:
PICK: Lakers Money Line @ -114 with SugarHouse.
The Lakers are on a downward spiral and things are getting so bad that people are starting to question the wisdom of them having LeBron James on their roster – arguably the Greatest of all Time. They’ve lost five in a row and it looks like they may miss out on the Play Offs. However, a road game against a miserable Bulls team that have won just 8 in 34 in Chicago is a low pressure chance to get back to winning ways. Take the Lakers to put up some big numbers in a much needed W.
Cleveland Cavaliers @ Philadelphia 76ers:
PICK: 76ers (-14 Points) @ -112 with SugarHouse
The Cavs claimed a rare win when beating the Raptors 126 – 101 on Monday but it’s not going to be enough to see them make the Play Offs, with Cleveland only one of three times already out of the post-season picture. Philadelphia, meanwhile, are gunning for a top seeding in the East and should be too good for the Cavs, who perhaps only managed to beat Toronto due to the match descending into violence when Serge Ibaka punched Marquese Chriss. The 76ers, who are 26-9 at home, can cover the spread in what should be a rout against a tired Cleveland team coming off a long trip to Philly.
New York Knicks @ Indiana Pacers:
PICK: Under 212.5 Points @ -113 with SugarHouse
The Pacers and the Knicks meet in Indiana with both teams coming off back-to-back defeats. Neither will be too high on confidence and it may not be the highest quality game of basketball at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Pacers should win though but a -12 Spread isn’t something to be too excited about. Instead, take the Unders in a match which Indiana should control but may involve missed points and some low scoring periods.
