Today brings a great set of games for sports fans and bettors, including a Thursday Night Football matchup with the Cowboys playing the Saints on the road in a high stakes game. There’s also some great NBA action this evening.
Dallas Test In New Orleans
The Cowboys have more than just a loss at stake when they come in Thursday night to visit the Saints. New Orleans is looking for the opportunity to turn their season around after losing four straight games. With one of their main figures still questionable in RB Alvin Kamara, the Saints need to look for another option on offense and have named QB Taysom Hill as the starter for tonight’s game.
In recent games, the Dallas defense was exposed on several occasions, which may also represent an opportunity for the Saints to study their weaknesses and come up with a strategy that will help them get a much-needed win.
Pick: Dallas Cowboys to win.
Knicks Look for Revenge in Chicago
Coming off a loss, the NY Knicks are now set to play against one of the strongest teams in today’s NBA in the Chicago Bulls. SG Zach Lavine will be back in the starting lineup after being out recently with a non-Covid related illness.
The Knicks have some unfinished business with the Bulls after losing to them earlier in the season. They are now looking to set the record straight by winning this game and continuing towards their goal of a berth in the postseason.
Pick: Chicago Bulls for the win.
Phoenix Returns Home
After one of their biggest wins this season against the Golden State Warriors, the Suns are ready to come back to Phoenix and host the Detroit Pistons in an easier matchup after recently competing with some of the toughest teams in the league.
The Suns have now tied a franchise record with 17 wins in a row and have been making statements in every one of those games. After being an NBA finalist last season, all indications are that they’re on track to make it there again at the end of this regular season so is an obvious NBA pick this week.
Pick: Phoenix Suns to win.
Bucks Head North
The defending champion Milwaukee Bucks have made their presence felt every single game this season and are now traveling to Toronto to play the Raptors, who are having a lot of difficulties and have now lost three straight games.
Finals MVP PF Giannis Antetokounmpo has been nothing less than sensational this season and does not appear to be slowing down after winning his first championship with the Bucks. He is currently averaging 27 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game which makes him a nightmare to play against on both ends of the court.
Pick: Milwaukee Bucks take it.
