NBA Games For March 2
A few NBA teams are about to catch a whooping this Wednesday. With eight games on deck, the latter half presents at least three games with double-digit favorites. This may an easy three-leg parlay on the NBA betting lines or we’re due for a few big upsets.
Charlotte Hornets vs Cleveland Cavaliers
It’s the fourth and final meeting between the Charlotte Hornets and Cleveland Cavaliers. The host Cavaliers are 10-7-1 against the spread (ATS) as home favorites while the Hornets are just 13-12-1 as a road underdog. Charlotte has won just two of its last 13 games.
Indiana Pacers vs Orlando Magic
The Indiana Pacers and Orlando Magic do it again following Orlando’s blowout win over Indiana on Monday. Indiana will now be the favorite and the total is the second-highest of the evening. Thanks to its porous defense, the total has gone over in 13 of Indiana’s last 16 games, so the over may be another popular bet online.
New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers
Joel Embiid and James Harden go for an encore as they lead their Philadelphia 76ers against the New York Knicks again. The duo couldn’t be stopped in their last meeting and the Sixers are now playing at home, Philadelphia is a double-digit favorite. However, the Sixers are just 2-6 ATS when favored by 10 points or more.
Harden goes behind-the-back for the Embiid slam 🔥

Miami Heat vs Milwaukee Bucks
If Wednesday’s slate was a menu, this is the filet mignon of the bunch. The streaking Miami Heat get one last crack at the Milwaukee Bucks, a team they have beaten twice in their last three meetings. Milwaukee is 4-1 in its last five games at home versus Miami and is the favorite. Kyle Lowry will continue to sit out for Miami.
Sacramento Kings vs New Orleans Pelicans
The highest-scoring game per the online sportsbook belongs to the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans’ game. The Pels are coming off two big wins with blowouts of the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers. The Kings are just 2-16 in their last 18 road games, but they did beat the Pelicans in their own arena this season.
Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets are once again involved in a blowout in the making. The Utah Jazz are the night’s biggest favorites. Utah is 12-10 ATS as a road favorite and Houston has lost 10 straight and has just one win in its last 15 games. It is 1-3 ATS in the last four games as a double-digit underdog.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Denver Nuggets
From one lopsided matchup to the next. The Denver Nuggets are being spotted over two touchdowns as the hosts to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Denver is just 9-13 ATS as a favorite at home, though it has won seven straight against Oklahoma City at the Ball Arena. The Thunder are 22-15-2 ATS against the Western Conference.
Portland Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker will miss this game but the Phoenix Suns are still big favorites as they host the Portland Trail Blazers. Phoenix is looking to snap a two-game skid, as is Portland. However, the Blazers are even more injury-riddled. The total has gone over in these teams’ last three meetings.
