Leg #1. Bucks -2 | -115 at DK Sportsbook

These two just faced off on Saturday as Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 43 points though the Bucks fell short 106-114. However, the Bucks were without two players that get a lot of time in Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton, who are both expected back for this one.

As for the home Hornets, Terry Rozier was the high scorer in the first contest with 28 points, and he’ll need a similar performance tonight if they want to knock off the reigning world champs in back-to-back games. I look for the shooting of Allen to make the difference tonight for a team in Milwaukee who is competing for the #1 seed in the East every night.

Leg #2. Nets -9.5 | -110 at DK Sportsbook

Kyrie Irving is back in the lineup tonight, as the Nets hit the road this time for a game in Portland. While they started slowly in his first game back Wednesday at Indiana, Irving scored 22 points, most in the fourth quarter, as the Nets came back for the 129-121 win.

In this one, they draw a Trail Blazers team ripe for working out their issues. Losers of six of their last eight, Portland has continued to struggle on both sides of their ball but most notably on defense. Coming into tonight, they rank dead-last in the league in opponent FG% (47.7%) and near the bottom in opponent points per game (112.6).

Look for drubbing tonight compliments of the Nets.

Leg #3. Cavaliers -5 | -110  at DK Sportsbook

One of the hottest ATS teams in the league not long ago, the Cavaliers continue to deal with one bad injury after another and come into this one having covered just one game since December 26th. Last night, they scored just 82 points in a 96-82 loss at the Warriors, as the return of Klay Thompson spurred an emotional win for the home team.

In this one, however, I like the Cavs to get back on track against a Kings team whose reeling in their own right. Losers of four straight, the Kings haven’t covered any of them, missing the cover by an average of 7.25 points.
