The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Wednesday, March 29th, with 20 teams in action. Take a look at three strong bets for tonight’s games, featuring the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Phoenix Suns.
NBA Best Bet #1: Los Angeles Lakers -1.5 (-110)
The 37-38 Los Angeles Lakers lost their most recent outing to the 36-39 Chicago Bulls, against whom they will play again on Wednesday. The Lakers did not play well in that contest. They brought LeBron James off the bench for just the second time in his career as he returned after a month-long absence.
However, With James set to re-enter the starting lineup and starting point guard D’Angelo Russell set to return from a two-game absence, the Lakers should look like a much different team. Therefore, expect a different outcome as the Lakers win by at least two points to even the season series.
NBA Best Bet #2: Milwaukee Bucks -11.5 (-110)
The 54-21 Milwaukee Bucks have been the best team in the NBA this season. However, Milwaukee still has plenty to play for. Currently, they are just 2.5 games ahead of the Boston Celtics for the Eastern Conference’s top seed.
Tonight, The Bucks will face a 33-43 Indiana Pacers team that has been trending in the wrong direction. Furthermore, Indiana is expected to be without several key pieces, including their top three scorers. Therefore, look for Milwaukee to take advantage and move closer to locking up the top seed by winning by at least 12 points.
NBA Best Bet #3: Phoenix Suns -5 (-110)
The 40-35 Phoenix Suns will have Kevin Durant back from a ten-game absence on Wednesday night. While they will face a 39-37 Minnesota Timberwolves who have been playing great basketball, Phoenix has yet to lose with Durant on the team. So expect the Suns to continue their strong play with the 2013-2014 NBA MVP in the lineup as they win by at least six points.
