Best NBA Bets Today: Player Props & Expert Betting Picks
Mavericks Moneyline (+135) Over 76ers
The game of the night should be ultra-competitive and entertaining, although Joel Embiid (back) could miss the game. If Embiid does not play, bettors should jump all over this plus-money bet.
Dallas enters the game on a three-game winning streak and is 8-2 over the last 10 games. They also have the league’s second-best record in 2022 at 26-8. Luka Doncic has been spectacular since the All-Star break, averaging nearly a double-double with 31.2 points, 9.9 rebounds and 6.8 assists while shooting 48.4% from the field and 36.4% from the 3-point line. Spencer Dinwiddie has hit several big shots for the Mavericks recently and has produced 18 points a game since arriving from Washington. Dallas has also been above average on the road this year.
Philadelphia has seemingly rediscovered its mojo since acquiring James Harden, although it has split its last four games. Harden has been solid since coming over from Brooklyn, producing 22.8 points, 10.6 assists and 6.8 rebounds. However, the 76ers are just 4-8 in games Embiid has missed. They also have lost three of their four games when they are playing for the fourth time in six days.

Knicks Spread (-6.0) Over Wizards; Over 225.5 Points
The point spread increased by 1.5 points since the opening line. New York has played decently well the past few games, winning four of six, and Julius Randle has been balling out recently in an attempt to save what has been a disappointing season for himself and the team. The Knicks have been pretty good on the offensive end in March, as they put up over 115 points a game on 46.2% shooting from the field and 38.6% from long distance. R.J. Barrett has scored the ball pretty well, though he hasn’t been very efficient, while Immanuel Quickley is playing some of the best basketball of the season. Meanwhile, the Wizards have been in a huge funk, as they have dropped five straight by at least 5 points. A big reason for their recent slide is that they have been awful defensively, allowing 115 points per game. Washington has posted an effective field goal percentage of 57.957% since March 1. Moreover, the Wizards are 3-9 on the road since January and have a negative-6.3-point differential.
