Best NBA Bets: 4 Picks in 4 Minutes for March 22
Patrick Beverley 2+ 3-Pointers
Beverley has been a key player for the Bulls since they acquired him. He has been particularly effective from beyond the arc, shooting 41.2% from 3-point range over the last seven games. In this game, Beverley should continue his hot shooting and make at least two 3-pointers. The 76ers have been playing very well defensively, but Beverley is in a good spot to go over here.
Joel Embiid Under 34.5 Points
Embiid is undoubtedly one of the best players in the league and has been the focal point of the 76ers offense this season. He is currently averaging 33.6 points per game, and the over/under for this game is set at 34.5 points. However, the Bulls will be able to limit Embiid’s scoring opportunities and keep him under this mark. The Bulls have surprisingly been one of the best defenses in the league, and they will be well prepared for this game.
Nikola Vucevic Under 9.5 Rebounds
Vucevic is a dominant rebounder and is currently averaging 11.3 rebounds per game. However, the 76ers have a strong frontcourt and will be able to limit Vucevic’s rebounding opportunities. The Bulls have struggled on the offensive glass this season, and this could play to the 76ers’ advantage. Expect Vucevic to fall short of his rebounding average and finish the game with under 9.5 rebounds.
Zach LaVine 3+ 3-Pointers
LaVine has been the Bulls’ best scorer the last month or so and has been on fire from beyond the arc. He is currently shooting 44.6% from 3-point range over the last month and has made at least three 3-pointers in five of his last seven games. We expect LaVine to continue his hot shooting and make at least three 3-pointers in this game.
