76ers vs Hornets

How to Watch

  • When: Friday, March 17, 2023, at 7 p.m ET

Odds

Prop Pick

The Philadelphia 76ers are in top form at the moment with six straight wins. Their superstar Joel Embiid was the scoring leader in each of those games, putting away 30+ points each time. We think the chances are that he’s gonna do the same tonight as well.

The bookies have set the margin to 34.5 points, but we think Embiid will manage it. Not only is he in fantastic form but his team is taking on one of the worst defenses in the league. The Charlotte Hornets have conceded 8,342 points in 71 games, or 117.5 points per game on average. This makes their defense the eighth worst in the league.

  • When: Friday, March 17, 2023, at 8 p.m ET
  • Where: AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas
  • Channel: NBA League Pass

Odds

Prop Pick

The San Antonio Spurs have the worst defense in the league, conceding 122.1 points per game on average. The Memphis Grizzlies aren’t great in the offense, but they should be able to do well tonight. The man who’s expected to lead their offense this evening is Desmond Bane.

With the Grizzlies’ scoring leader Ja Morant still suspended, Bane is the one who needs to do even better in the offense than usual. His season average is 21.1 PPG, but we think he’ll go over that number this evening.

Mavericks vs Lakers

How to Watch

  • When: Friday, March 17, 2023, at 10:30 p.m ET
  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, California
  • Channel: NBA TV

Odds

Prop Pick

This is supposed to be the biggest matchup of the evening, but both teams will miss a couple of key men. Over in the Mavericks’ roster, there’s no Luka Doncic, while Kyrie Irving and Tim Hardaway remain doubtful. The Lakers are without LeBron James for sure, while Anthony Davis is reportedly struggling with fitness but will probably play.

He should play, but he might not do too great on the court. In fact, we expect him to score no more than 28 points in total.

Anthony Davis to score under 28.5 points-112
