Detroit Pistons ML over Orlando Magic (+225)'

The Pistons are still the worst team in the NBA, but it feels like only a matter of time (perhaps as early as this weekend) before the pass Washington and they are also within striking distance of San Antonio. Detroit is actually playing decent basketball of late – at least by its season-long standards. Isaiah Stewart is suspended due to his altercation with Phoenix center Drew Eubanks, but the Pistons have plenty of other big men like Jalen Duren James Wiseman an d Ausar Thompson who can pick up the slack. For the Magic, Markelle Fultz is out; that's not a crippling absence, but it doesn't help. Although Orlando is playing pretty well these days, this is by no means a team that is an automatic 'W' against Detroit.'

Boston Celtics -10.5 alternate spread over New York Knicks (+150)'

New York is in absolute shambles at the moment. This club is still in a top-4 spot in the Eastern Conference, but it is by no means in the clear for a top-6 seeding. There is no guarantee that the Knicks will avoid the play-in tournament. Both Julius Randle and OG Anunoby are injured, which is the real problem in New York. If this team was healthy, it would be a real contender in the East. But it isn't, and that means a blowout is likely in the cards when Boston pays a visit to MSG. The Celtics are 44 -12 overall (by far the best record in the entire NBA) and they have won 7 in a row. Their 2 most recent victories have come by 50 and 17 points – over Brooklyn and Chicago, respectively. Boston is sweeping the head-to-head series 3-0 so far this season, with 2 of its wins coming by double-digits.
