Wednesday night has a very tasty lineup of NBA fixtures on offer with plenty to choose from. We’ve gone through the best of the games and found some value in the markets in three of the heavy hitters. We’ll be checking out the Lakers travelling to Toronto, the Wizards at the Bulls and the glamour tie of the night when the top two teams from both conferences face off when Celtic travel to Arizona to take on the Suns.

La Lakers @ Toronto Raptors tips 

Under 225 points

What has us looking at the Unders bet here is that Toronto have had an average of 112.2 points scored on average so far this season while the Lakers are averaging 116.4 which would give us an implied score here of 228.6 which is obviously over the 225 but only just. 

At home, the Raptors have averaged just 106.8 over their last five at the Scotiabank Arena while the Lakers have picked up a pretty healthy average of 122.6 over their last five games on the road. However, it’s that strong defence that the Raptors have that’s putting us off an Overs bet here, particularly as they’ve kept two away teams in their last three games at 100 points or lower and over their last five meetings against the Lakers have conceded 105.4 points on average. The hosts are nine wins and three losses at home this season and Lakers have struggled on the road so we can’t see the score being too high here.

Raptors to Win

That impressive home run of nine to three means we’d have to go with the hosts, particularly as they’ve gotten the better of the visitors in six of their last 10 showdowns in Canada. The hosts have also won nine of their 13 games this season when priced as the favourites and the Lakers have only won six of their 16 games as underdogs this campaign and when playing back-to-back games have only won two of their seven matches, Lebron James could be rested here too meaning it’s certainly advantage Raptors so we’re taking them on the Moneyline as well.

Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls tips

Bulls Under 115.5 points

Without Bradley Beal the Wizards should struggle in Chicago, they’ve been averaging 110 points per game this season and have won none of their last five on the road. The Bulls have won just two of their last five at United Center, averaging 110.6 points over those last five games. This one has an air of safety-first about it, the Wizards are looking to end that five-game winless streak on the road while the Bulls will be eager to not make it four losses in-a-row. We’re likely to see a cautious approach from both sides here and with the Bulls covering the line of 115.5 points in just one of their last seven at home we can’t see them covering it here.

Chicago Bulls -5.5

In their last home game the Bulls dismissed the Celtics by a margin of 14 points, they’ve also beaten the Milwaukee Bucks since then as well as the Utah Jazz but came up short against the Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors and took a bit of a hiding from the Phoenix Suns. Saying that, the Wizards have been pretty bad on the road and without Beal to rely on for three-pointers it’s certainly advantage Bulls here. The away side have won just three of their 11 away games this season and while we don’t see this ending with a huge scoreline, the Bulls should have more than enough to win by six points here.

Boston Celtics @ Phoenix Suns tips

Celtic Under 116.5 points

This should be a cracking match-up, the Suns have lost just two of their 14 home games this season while the Celtics have won nine of their 12 on the road so far and while both sides will be going for it here the fact is that the Celtics have only covered this line in four of their last 10 on the road and the Suns have only allowed 117 points, or more, against them in two of their last 10 at the Footprint Center.

The Celtics tend to be a bit more defensive on the road and they’re going to have to weather some of the storm the Suns rain down on them, as they’ve scored at least 120 points in four of their last five. While the Bostonians are favourites we think it’s too close to call but seeing their averages well below the line there’s value to be had here in backing the Celtics to Score Under 116.5 points.
