NBA Betting Picks For Today's Games: Feb. 22

NBA Moneyline Pick: Knicks ML at 76ers (-102, FanDuel)

Both the Knicks and Sixers really needed the All-Star break. New York needed the time off for players to heal from injuries, while Philly needed the time to get a few practices in with new pieces to its roster. That said, I think the wrong team is favored in this matchup. The Knicks suffered four straight losses heading into the break but it should get Donte DiVincenzo, Isaiah Hartenstein and Bojan Bogdanovic back, which will add a ton of scoring and depth to their rotations. 

It will still be a few more weeks before New York gets OG Anunoby back, but DiVincenzo was averaging nearly 27 points on 39.5% shooting from deep without him. His return will take a lot of pressure off of Jalen Brunson to have to do all the scoring. Getting Hartenstein back also brings an interior presence that the Knicks desperately missed without him. With Joel Embiid still out for Philly, Hartenstein will have the matchup advantage down low over Paul Reed, which will open up the perimeter for New York's shooters. 

When these teams met in early January, the Knicks won by 36 on the road, and that was with Embiid in the game. Julius Randle and Anunoby were also on the floor for New York, but their absence hasn’t been quite as impactful as the 76ers big man. 

Tibs will have his players ready to go, so grab the Knicks to win outright! 

NBA Pick Against the Spread (ATS): Clippers +2 at Thunder

This should be an incredibly competitive game, given that the season series is tied 1-1 and this is the last time these teams will meet. L.A. won the first matchup, while the Thunder took the second. However, the Clippers were without Kawhi Leonard on a road back-to-back for that loss after losing in Dallas the night before and were playing their third game in four nights.

L.A.’s defense struggled to contain OKC’s offense, allowing it to shoot 58.6% from the field and 47.1% from deep. The Clippers also turned the ball over 15 times, leading to quite a few easy buckets for the Thunder. 

With Leonard back in the lineup, and and no rest advantage here, I think we’ll see a much tighter contest. This line has already come down half a point in favor of L.A., which I think makes sense. These two teams are nearly the exact same in net rating with the Thunder at 2.7 and the Clippers at 2.6, so I expect this to come down to the wire. With that being the case, I’d prefer to have the points in my pocket, so I’ll back the road team. 

NBA Over/Under (Total) Pick: Jazz Over 119.5 vs. Hornets

There aren't too many things I love more than betting on the Jazz to go over their team total when they're playing at home. After all, at 20-7 to the over, what isn't there to like about it?! They're averaging 121.0 points per game over their last 10 games in Salt Lake City and are facing a Charlotte team that is going to struggle on the defensive end in SLC's high altitude.

On the season, the Hornets have the worst defensive rating on the road and, while that's gotten a tiny bit better since adding a few new pieces at the trade deadline, it still isn't anything that concerns me. If anything, Charlotte's offense got better with Seth Curry, Grant Williams and Davis Bertans moving all the way up to No. 11 in offensive rating over their three games together, and will put pressure on the Jazz to score more.

Utah ranks No. 2 in 3-point attempts and No. 6 in 3-point makes over its last 10 home games, while Charlotte's 3-point defense is No. 29 in opponent 3-point percentage on the season. Again, that number has gotten significantly better in its three games post-trade deadline, but coming off a week of drinking tequila in Cabo is going to paint a different story.

I also like the full game over at 232.5, so if you think the Hornets can keep up with Utah on the offensive end, go ahead and grab the over as well!

NBA BetQL Model Pick: Magic at Cavaliers Over 216.5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The BetQL model loves the over 216.5 in Thursday's Magic-Cavs game, making a five-star play. The model makes the total 222 points, which is a 5.5-point difference from the current line.

These two teams have met three times this season with the total going over 216.5 in two of those games. Their first meeting finished with 232 points and the third with 225 points. The second meeting stayed under this total with just 198, but both teams struggled from deep, shooing less than 27.0%. Both teams are also fully healthy and should be refreshed and rejuvenated following the All-Star break, so fatigue or difficult travel spots won't be an issue in this game.

The over has also hit in five straight Magic games and three of the Cavs' last five home games.
