Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, March 19th (2022)

There are four NBA games tonight. Those four games have good betting value and feature the Milwaukee Bucks and Minnesota Timberwolves matchup. That matchup is two great teams who keep getting better in the second half of the year. This game is a good preview of two quality playoff teams that have the potential to win a few games. Both of these teams are coming off two days of rest, and we can expect them to play hard. Let us peek into tonight’s games.

Milwaukee Bucks Moneyline (-150 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

Both of these teams are hot. The Timberwolves are 8-1 in March, and the Bucks are 6-1. The advantage for the Bucks comes on defense. They are the fifth-best defense in the NBA, while the Timberwolves are the eleventh-best defense. The Timberwolves have nagging injuries too. Jaden McDaniels and Anthony Edwards are nursing injuries that could impact their gameplay. Milwaukee is the more healthy team in this matchup, giving them a slight advantage. 

Dallas Mavericks -1.5 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook )

The Charlotte Hornets struggle against great defenses. That has shown in big games all year long. The Dallas Mavericks are the seventh-best defense in the league, which will create issues for the Hornets while scoring. The Hornets are without Gordon Hayward this game too. That will hurt their scoring and depth late into this matchup. Donic and Dinwiddie are playing great basketball right now, and their ability to score will give the Mavericks the betting value in this game. 

Detroit Pistons +8 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Cavs are on the second part of a back-to-back where they lost in an overtime game to the Denver Nuggets. Cleveland already has injuries that are hurting their depth, and the additional minutes on their legs will hurt them going into this matchup against the Pistons. The Pistons have been automatic at covering the spread lately. Saddiq Bey, Jerami Grant, and Cade Cunningham have improved the second half of the season. Marvin Bagley III looks like a new player in Detroit and provides help at the power forward position. Detroit is the sneaky play tonight.
