Atlanta Hawks at Charlotte Hornets, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Charlotte -102, bet $20.40 to win $20

This is an important game. Only a half-game separates Atlanta from Charlotte in the Eastern Conference standings. Currently, the Hawks are ninth and the Hornets are tenth, so they’ll probably be playing again in the playoff play-in game. It’s not unreasonable to think one team might be able to overtake the Nets in the eighth spot, but most likely this will be the #9/#10 matchup. I’m betting both of these teams want to play that game at home. Atlanta leads the season series, 2-1, and they’ve won three in a row, but they’re 12-21 on the road. Charlotte returns home after winning two straight. I think the Hornets will be amped for this one, and getting essentially even odds, I’ll take the home team.

Denver Nuggets at Washington Wizards, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Denver -6 (-110), bet $16.50 to win $15

Two teams with different agendas. Denver is scrapping for playoff position; Washington is trying to dive towards the lottery. The Nuggets have been treading water lately, 4-6 in their last 10 games, but just came off a big win at Philadelphia on Monday. They need to grab every game they can against winnable opponents. Nikola Jokic continues to set the league on fire, and he’ll have his way tonight too.

Philadelphia 76ers at Cleveland Cavaliers, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Philadelphia -165, bet $33 to win $20

Oh, what a difference a week makes. Just a few days ago, we were marveling at Philadelphia and their unbeatable offense. Now the sky is falling. Obviously, the truth is somewhere in the middle. But the Sixers need this game. They’re coming off a loss to Denver on Monday, and they’re fighting to keep a home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Right now, they’re third in the East, and would face - hey, what do you know - a banged up Cleveland team to open up the postseason. Joel Embiid is coming off losing a battle to fellow MVP candidate Nikola Jokic, and tonight he faces a Cavaliers team without their center Jarrett Allen. I sense a big game and a return to optimism.
