Lakers – Cavaliers, 19:30 | TV: TNT

Latest odds:

Cleveland Cavaliers -6

  • Key trend: The Cavaliers are 11-1-1 in their last 13 home games.
  • Pick: Cavaliers -5.0 (-110)

After a terrible start to the 2022-23 season, the Lakers have won five of their last six games. But I’m still losing to the Lakers on the road against the Cavaliers. In mid-November, the Cavs struggled and even lost a five-game streak. This group then turned the tide and have since compiled a 7-3 record.

Cleveland is dangerous in the attacking part of the site. On Tuesday, the Cavs are averaging 111.3 points per game, which is good for 18th in the league. However, Cleveland thrives from the perimeter as they shoot 37.8% of their three shots (sixth in the NBA). Donovan Mitchell (42.1 percent) and Darius Garland (40.8 percent) really lead the way from long range and should be causing problems for the Lakers all night.

Meanwhile, despite the difficulties on defense, the Lakers are more than capable of scoring on offense. This is the group averaging 114.8 points per game (10th in the NBA). On top of that, star big man Anthony Davis has been out of his mind in the last two games with 55 and 44 points. But they have to face the Cavaliers, who have the fewest points per game (105.0) in the league. The Cavaliers are in the middle of the rankings when it comes to 3-point defense as they shoot 35.4% from range, but the Lakers are one of the worst 3-point teams in the NBA.

Panthers in Jets, 20:00 | TV: ESPN+

Latest odds:

up to 6 years

Choice: Under 6.0 Goals (+100): Two of the NHL’s best goaltenders will be in the spotlight Tuesday when the Jets host the Panthers. With that in mind, I’m comfortable riding with the bottom in this particular match.

Jets goaltender Connor Hellebike was one of the best in his position, posting a 12-5-1 record as well as a 2.27 goals against average (fifth in the NHL) and a .931 save percentage (third in the NHL). ). The 29-year-old goalkeeper has scored two or fewer goals in each of his last three matches and won all three.

Panthers goaltender Spencer Knight has been equally impressive lately. In the season, Knight posted a record of 8-3-3, 2.49 goals against average (seventh in the NHL) and a .923 save percentage (fifth in the NHL). In the last two matches, he conceded a total of two goals. Under 15-5-1 in the last 21 Jets home games, so there’s definitely a trend.

Key trend: Under 7-1-1 in the Jets’ last nine games after scoring five or more goals in the previous game.

Pistons in heat, 19:30 | TV: NBA.TV
Pick: Saddiq Bey over 11.5 points (-109)
: Saddiq Bey recently returned to the Pistons after missing several games with an ankle injury. Back on the attack, I’m sure we can cash in on his points at this point.

Bay is a versatile wide player, averaging 14.6 points per game this season. In its last four games, the 2020 second round pick has scored at least 12 points in two of those competitions. While it may not be an insanely large sample size since he returned from an ankle injury, Bay scored 24 points against the Grizzlies on Sunday, in which he made 7-of-16 shots. Cade Cunningham is still out, so the Pistons will need to continue to rely on Bey to play offensively every night.

Key trend: Bay has scored at least 12 points in two of his last four games.
