Current NBA Odds for the Championship
+240 Milwaukee Bucks
+280 LA Lakers
+300 LA Clippers
+1500 Houston Rockets
+1800 Boston Celtics
The Rockets since dealing Clint Capela have been hot playing small ball and the Celtics and Lakers have looked great of late as well. The Bucks made a statement on Tuesday taking down Toronto on the road as they made a bigtime comeback in the second half. The season has 20 games left as teams jockey for playoff positioning.
Key NBA Games this Weekend
Friday February 28th
Thunder @ Bucks
Both teams have been great covering the spread since the All-Star break. This is a situation where at home the Bucks probably keep rolling especially since they average 120 points per game and have the biggest point differential in wins/losses in the league at 12.4 more points a game than their opponent.
Harry’s Hypothesis, Bucks by 16
Nuggets @ Clippers
This Denver team is relentless in keeping the 1 to 2 game lead over the Clippers. This is a situation for the Clippers at home to put the Nuggets back in their place and Doc Rivers the Clippers head coach will make adjustments and make it happen.

Saturday February 29th
Rockets @ Celtics
Rockets as stated earlier have things working in their favor. Small ball is working for Westbrook and Harden. This game is the ABC game of the week and it stays close but I’m really looking at a high scoring game here and the OVER is the play
Harry’s Hypothesis, the game lands between 235-243 total points
Sunday March 1st
76ers @ Clippers
The 76ers have been awful on the road and in Los Angeles that continues as Paul George and Kawhi Leonard light Philadelphia up.

Lakers @ Pelicans
LeBron James probably played his best game of the year against the Pelicans on Tuesday with 40 points and now in less than a week these two squads play again, this time in New Orleans. Zion has been unbelievable lately and is making a charge at winning the rookie of the year. The Pelicans will be pumped for the Lakers in town and put up a great performance in an impressive victory.
