Tonight, January the 28th, sees just 3 games on the NBA schedule, but not without opportunity as I see money to be made on tonight’s NBA board. Tonight’s games include the Toronto Raptors making their way to Broadway as they will collide with the New York Knicks, the Boston Celtics will visit the Orlando Magic in a battle of the best in the East, and the Phoenix Suns will welcome Western Conference foe Dallas Mavericks to the desert. Do not miss out on this week’s continued action the NBA has to offer, and be sure to get your FREE NBA predictions and picks below.
NBA Predictions and Free Picks January 28th:
Toronto Raptors @ New York Knicks – The Toronto Raptors come into tonight’s game extremely fresh off of a 111-103 win at home over the Miami Heat one night ago. The Knicks come into action tonight looking to improve upon an 11-13 home record that has them currently sitting 2 spots out of a playoff spot, and 5 spots behind the 5th place Raptors. However, the Knicks might play their best basketball as a favorite. They are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home favorite. The most important stat tonight could be that the Raptors are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. I like the home team to cover the spread tonight from Madison Square Garden.
Free Pick – KNICKS -3.5 (-105)
Boston Celtics @ Orlando Magic – Two of the best the NBA Eastern Conference has to offer collide tonight as the 4th place Magic will welcome the 2nd place Celtics to Orlando. Something has to give tonight as the Orlando Magic play extremely well at home (16-4 home record), but the Celtics are one of the NBA’s best road teams (16-6 road record) this season. Although both offenses are very potent, defense is the key to success tonight. UNDER is 4-1 in the Celtics last 5 overall, and 5-1 in the Magic last 6 overall. UNDER is also 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two, and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Orlando. Look for strong defense from both sides tonight in a low scoring affair from Orlando.
Free Pick – UNDER 190 (-110)
Dallas Mavericks @ Phoenix Suns – The Phoenix Suns cannot seem to buy a win, as they have plummeted down the Western Conference standings all the way down to 9th, where they sit with a 26-21 record. Dallas however, has been on the way up the Western Conference ladder, as they sit in 3rd place, with an impressive 30-15 record. Phoenix remains strong at home with a 17-6 record, but its Dallas’ 16-8 road record that is more impressive. The lights are usually shot out when these two collide as OVER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings, and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix. OVER is 10-2 in the Suns last 12 vs. the Western Conference, and 4-1 in the Mavericks last 5 vs. the Western Conference. Look for a lot of points tonight from the desert.
Free Pick – OVER 216 (-110)
