NBA Picks 2/15/22
An absolutely brutal night of betting on NBA games. Bruce Brown and LaMarcus Aldridge led the Nets to an emphatic win over the Kings. All of the good vibes after Sabonis’ debut are now gone. They are once again a dumpster fire. The Pelicans trounced the Raptors and the Warriors continued their slide with a lopsided loss to the Clippers. For the time being, the Warriors are being placed on the black list. We will reevaluate their status post-all-star break. For now, let’s take a look a tonight’s slate and try to get back on track with the NBA Picks 2/15/22.
Dallas Mavericks at Miami Heat (-3.5) 7:40 p.m EST
Count me among those that think Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Bertans can actually contribute for the Mavericks. How much so is yet to be determined. With Tyler Herro out and Jimmy Butler questionable, I think the Mavericks have a chance to steal a game on the road.
Pick: Dallas Mavericks +4 (-110 via DraftKings)
Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers (+3) 7:30 p.m EST
With Harden out until after the All Star game, I don’t think Philadelphia has enough scoring punch to beat the Celtics. The Boston backcourt looks terrifying on defense. As long as either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown can have a decent scoring night, I think this is a very winnable game for Boston
Pick: Boston Celtics -3 (-110 via DraftKings)
Indiana Pacers at Milwaukee Bucks (-12.5) 8:10 p.m EST
With no Myles Turner, Giannis is going to have his way with this Indiana team. Indiana has lost their past 5 games and has its sights set on the future. This could be a get right game for the Bucks after losing to the Trailblazers last night.
