NBA Betting Picks: Wednesday March 30th
Denver Nuggets at Indiana Pacers
Bainbridge Fieldhouse, 7pm ET
The Nuggets will be desperate to extend their winning streak to three when they travel to take on the Pacers. They proved too good in tight tussles against both the Hornets and the Thunder, which gave them a little bit of breathing room in the sixth spot in the West standings.
The Pacers have had a horror season and decided to pack it all in and go for a full rebuild. They enter this clash having lost each of their last four games, two of which were 30+ point thumping against the Grizzlies and the Raptors. The Pacers are now 25-51 on the season and will be looking forward to some time off.
This will be the second and final meeting between these teams this season and it will be the Nuggets who have the opportunity to secure a series sweep. They were three-point winners against the Pacers in their first meeting and with how both teams are trending at the moment, we expect them to win in easier style on Wednesday night.
Miami Heat at Boston Celtics
TD Garden, 7:30pm ET
It took a matchup against one of the worst teams in the competition, but the Heat were finally able to snap their four-game losing streak thanks to a demolition job against the Kings. Importantly, that win keeps them in the hunt for the #1 seed in the East, which they currently hold by 0.5 games over the Bucks.
The Celtics have been by far the best team in the East since the turn of the new year. At one stage they were below .500 at 18-21, but they enter this slate at a very healthy 47-29, which is the third best mark in the East. Unfortunately, they lost in overtime against the Raptors last time out, but they were without both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.
The star duo of Tatum and Brown are both expected to return to action for this clash with the Heat, which they will rightly start as favorites in. The Celtics have easily won both of their meetings with the Heat this season and we expect them to get the job done again on this occasion.
Phoenix Suns at Golden State Warriors
Chase Center, 10pm ET
The Suns continued their dominant regular season with a 114-104 win over a fellow championship contender in the 76ers last time out. That win was the Suns eighth in a row, five of which came on the road. They’ll be the only team to chalk up 60+ wins this season and their record currently sits at 61-14.
To say the undermanned Warriors have struggled in recent weeks is a massive understatement. They enter this slate having lost each of their last three and six of their last seven games. Steph Curry remains out with injury, while Draymond Green will be available after a short layoff.
These teams have met three times this season and surprisingly, it’s the Warriors who have the advantage 2-1. However, Curry is a huge loss for the Warriors and the Suns have easily the best road record in the league this season at 30-6. We expect them to level the series at 2-2 with a good win on Wednesday.
