Utah Jazz Moneyline -150 at DraftKings Sportsbook

This game is just a bad matchup for the Hornets. The Hornets are 19-7 this year against top-ten NBA defenses, and the Utah Jazz is the ninth-ranked defense in the NBA. The other issues for the Hornets are Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. These two players have been able to score whenever they want against the Hornets. Until they prove they can stop those two, the Jazz will have an advantage in this game.

Miami Heat -5.5 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Heat is the seventh-best team against the spread this season. They have plenty of talent and depth but have struggled to keep everyone on the floor all season. Despite those struggles, they have still found ways to win games. Tonight the Heat play the Knicks. The Knicks have had a tough season, and the only good that has come out of it is RJ Barrett. Barrett has stepped up as a scorer this year. Besides Randle and Barrett, the Knicks lack scoring ability. The Heat have the full advantage in this game.  

Detroit Pistons Moneyline -160 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Pistons have been a whole new team the second part of the season. Cade Cunningham, Jerami Grant, and Saddiq Bey have all proven they can be the leading scorer on any given night. That gives the Pistons options and creates difficulties for opposing defenses. The Wizards will be one of those defenses that struggle to contain all three guys. Without Kyle Kuzma, the Wizards have to lean on Porzingis and Caldwell-Pope to score. The Wizards are down right now, and Detroit has the advantage.
