Our NBA predictions continue as the play-offs edge closer, with franchises in the Eastern and Western Conferences trying to squeeze into the top eight places.
There are nine matches overnight, with implications at both ends of the divisions for the victors and losers.
Josh Luckhurst picks out three selections which can be combined for a 5/1 treble on a busy night of basketball.
Cleveland Cavaliers to beat New York Knicks @ 4/5
In the battle at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, the Knicks travel to the Cavaliers just one game behind their hosts.
New York have lost their last 16 matches and have also traded star man Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas to leave rookie Kevin Knox as the new go-to guy.
As part of the trade, the Knicks have done okay with Dennis Smith Jr, DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews coming over to Madison Square Garden, but that has not stopped the rot.
Cleveland have only been mildly better, winning back-to-back matches at the end of last month, but still have a pretty poor record of 11-45 this season.
Both teams would ideally like to avoid this match-up, with the worst-ranked side in the NBA set to get their hands on potential superstar pick Zion Williamson in the 2019 NBA Draft, with the number one spot currently occupied by the Knicks.
With this in mind, plus their recent trade deal and form, the Cavs look to have just too much for New York and we expect home court advantage to be the main factor in our NBA predictions.
Minnesota Timberwolves to score over 116.5 points vs Los Angeles Clippers @ 4/5
The Timberwolves sit five games behind their opponents, who occupy the final play-off place in the Western Conference, and will look to end their four-match losing streak against the Clippers.
Minnesota have been solid at home for most of the season but have struggled in recent weeks, recording a 5-5 record at the Target Center.
The Clippers, however, have seen an upturn in form at just the right time as they look to consolidate their push for the season-ending play-offs, winning six of their last 10 matches on the road.
They have one of the better away records in the NBA, as one of only seven franchises to have a positive win-to-losses ratio (16-14), making it harder to predict a winner in this one.
We would usually edge towards a Timberwolves victory but their recent form is a worry, so the hosts to score 117 points or more looks more appealing.
Milwaukee Bucks to score over 118.5 points vs Chicago Bulls @ 17/20
The Bucks top the Eastern Conference and look to keep the Toronto Raptors at arm’s length with another victory to extend their winning run to five matches.
NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo has led Milwaukee to the top with brilliant individual performances and has been aided by Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez.
The Bucks have won the last five matches on the road, while Chicago have failed to register a home win in 2019 – a run of 10 matches.
Chicago are struggling with a 13-43 record this season to sit in 13th place in the Eastern Conference and will likely be on the wrong side of a heavy score against their high-flying divisional rivals.
Milwaukee have a 9-1 record this campaign against Central Division rivals, while the Bulls are just 3-8 in the same division, so it is easy to see why a Bucks win will be too short in price.
A handicap bet could also ask too much for a little price, so a points-scored offer could be the way, with Milwaukee getting the nod to surpass 118.5.
