The NBA is back! Check out my prediction on a few marquee contests here on USA Wager!
Wizards vs Cavaliers
The Wizards and Cavaliers will go head to head in Washington for a Eastern Conference battle. Cleveland has had an interesting season, but have won 2 straight and are still 5th in the East. The Wizards have lost two in a row and could be missing Bradley Beal along with Kyle Kuzma tonight.
Kristaps Porzingis will have to carry the load against the young Cavs team with stars like Donovan Mitchell and Darius Garland. I got Cleveland getting an easy win tonight and taking the dub against Washington.
- NBA Prediction by Drew Knuppel: Cavaliers -3.5
Nets vs Clippers
The Clippers take on the Nets for a game that will be without Kyrie Irving, who was just shipped to Dallas. L.A. has Kawhi Leonard and Paul George playing at full strength right now and are currently dominating, each scoring 30+ points last game.
The Nets are in such a weird phase right now, so I don’t expect them to be able to compete tonight without KD and Irving now. Bet on the Clippers to blow Brooklyn out!
- NBA Prediction by Drew Knuppel: Clippers -270
Trail Blazers vs Bucks
The Trail Blazers and Bucks is the big-time game of the night. Milwaukee now has their big 3 healthy and ready to go after it in Portland. Damian Lillard has been playing out of his mind recently and has three 40+ point games in his last 4 outings.
The Bucks at full strength are a scary to go up against, so I don’t think the Blazers will have the fire power to fight back against Giannis and company. Take the Bucks to win big!
- NBA Prediction by Drew Knuppel: Bucks -3.5
