Accumulator of 5.56/1
Milwaukee Bucks @ Atlanta Hawks – Bucks (-2.5) @ 10/11
This will be the final time these two sides will lock horns during the regular season, with the Hawks currently leading the season series 2-1.
Milwaukee beat the Knicks last time out, while Atlanta will enter this match with plenty of confidence after toppling the Los Angeles Clippers 112-108.
The Bucks will be aiming to continue applying the pressure to the Celtics, who currently sit top of the Eastern Conference, with a win here, while Atlanta currently occupy a play-in spot.
Milwaukee have won four of their last six since enduring a four-game losing streak, so I’m going to pick them to cover the point spread in this one.
New Orleans Pelicans @ Boston Celtics – Celtics (-8.5) @ 4/5
The New Orleans Pelicans will look to end the Boston Celtics’ five-game home winning streak when the teams meet in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Boston picked up their fifth straight home win by beating the Chicago Bulls 107-99 last time out, without guard Marcus Smart. Jayson Tatum continues to perform at an MVP-calibre, averaging a team-high 30.8 points per game. No Celtics player has averaged 30.0 points per game in a season, with Larry Bird at 29.9 in 1987-88.
The Pelicans set a season high for points in their 132-112 triumph over the Wizards last time out, despite the absence of leading scorer Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
The Celtics have a 16-5 home record, while the Pelicans are 8-11 on the road, so I’m backing Boston to cover the point spread.
Indiana Pacers @ New York Knicks – Knicks (-4.5) @ 10/11
The Pacers have won eight of their last 10 games, and will be seeking revenge in Madison Square Garden when they take on the Knicks, after suffering a 109-106 setback on December 18.
Meanwhile, Jalen Brunson erupted for a career-high 44 points for New York against the Bucks last time out, but it wasn’t enough as the Knicks were defeated 111-107.
Prior to that setback, the Knicks had won their previous four outings, so I anticipate this game being a closely-fought affair.
However, I’m backing the Knicks to cover the spread, especially since they are home here.
