There are a total of eight NBA teams taking the floor tonight, providing us with plenty of PrizePicks bets to target. Below, we’ll go through the best picks across all NBA matchups.
NBA PrizePicks Bet #1: Jordan Poole Over 4.5 Assists
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors Match Details
Fixture: Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors
Date & Time: Thursday, March 2, 10:00 p.m. EDT
Venue: Chase Center, San Francisco, California
Jordan Poole is enjoying the best season of his career, and he’s especially flourished when star Stephen Curry has been sidelined. Although Poole is known mostly for his scoring ability, during February, Poole averaged 5.7 assists. The University of Michigan product sees the ball in his hands a ton with Curry out, and in the two games against the Clippers this year, Poole has reached five assists both times. Expect him to dish out five dimes again tonight at home.
NBA PrizePicks Bet #2: Bradley Beal Over 22.5 Points
Toronto Raptors vs. Washington Wizards Match Details
Fixture: Toronto Raptors @ Washington Wizards
Date & Time: Thursday, March 2, 7:00 p.m. EDT
Venue: Capital One Arena, Washington, D.C.
Bradley Beal faces the Raptors for the first time this year, fresh off a 37-point performance against the Hawks. Beal had been slumping a bit, but he broke out on Tuesday and should be able to ride that momentum into tonight’s contest. Beal has scored 23 or more points versus Toronto in five of his past six games against them, and he tends to be a streaky player. As the main scoring option for Washington, look for the veteran shooting guard to get to 23 points tonight in D.C.
NBA PrizePicks Bet #3: Buddy Hield Over 15.5 Points
Indiana Pacers vs. San Antonio Spurs Match Details
Fixture: Indiana Pacers @ San Antonio Spurs
Date & Time: Thursday, March 2, 8:30 p.m. EDT
Venue: AT&T Center, San Antonio, Texas
Buddy Hield has gone cold from the field his last two games, shooting a combined 4-for-11. Hield went to the line a lot last game, but he averages 13.4 field goals per game this year, so it’s unusual for him to only attempt 11 over a two-game span. Tonight, the Pacers take on the Spurs, who allow the most points in the NBA by a sizeable margin. Considering how banged up and how bad their defense is, expect the Spurs to give up a ton of points again. This should allow Hield to bounce back and hoist up more shots than he has been recently.
