Orlando Magic @ Washington Wizards
The betting odds at BetOnline is showing a total of 227.0 on this NBA Southeast Division game.
Orlando has gone over the total in their last 5 trips to Washington. Those 5 contests averaged a combined 234.4 points scored per game.
These division rivals have played one another 3 times this season. It’s worth noting, there were a collective 58 or more free throws attempted on each of those occasions. That’s significant since Orlando made 79.3% of their free throws throughout each of their previous 5 games. Furthermore, Washington has gone 80.7 from the charity stripe thru its last 5 outings.
Washington has gone over in their last 5 games when there’s been a total of 239.0 or less. Those outings produced a lofty 244.6 points scored per contest. During that stretch, the Wizards averaged 125.8 points scored per game and shot an impressive 49.0%. Additionally, Washington has gone over the total in 21 of 31 home games this season.
Pick: Over 227.0
Golden State Warriors @ Houston Rockets
The NBA odds at Heritage currently has a total of 230.5 on this showdown between 2 elite Western Conference teams.
You may be surprised to know that 7 of the last 8 meetings between these teams have gone under. Those 8 head to head battles manufactured only 209.5 points scored per game. As a matter of fact, the last 3 played in Houston all went under with a mere 192.7 points being scored per contest.
Golden State will be without the services of star forward Kevin Durant this evening. Durant is sidelined by an ankle injury and the Warriors will surely miss his season scoring average of 27.4 points per game.
The Warriors have seen their last 5 games played all going under. The average total in those contests was 231.4 and there were 222.4 points scored per contest.
Houston has witnessed 4 of its previous 5 going under. The Rockets stout defensive play was a major contributing factor to those low scoring affairs. Houston has held its last 5 opponents to only 97.8 points per game and a miserable 28.3% shooting from 3-point territory.
Pick: Under 230.5

Utah Jazz @ Phoenix Suns
The present total at Bovada on this game is 221.0.
Utah has witnessed 3 of their previous 4 and 5 of its last 7 games going under the total. The Jazz are coming off a poor performance during a 98-88 home loss to Oklahoma City. They’re 22-10 under this season following a home game and there were 210.9 points scored per contest.
Phoenix has scored 97 points or fewer in their last 5 and 7 of its previous 8 games played against Utah.
The Suns have gone 9-2 under in their last 9 at home. Moreover, they’ve gone 4-1 under in their previous 5 games overall.
Phoenix pulled the upset of this NBA regular season in their last appearance in defeating Golden State 115-111 as a 16.0-point road underdog. Nevertheless, the Suns are 13-4 under this season after a game in which they scored 115 points or more.
I like this contest to stay below the posted number. One of my Wednesday 3/13 NBA totals picks will echo that prior statement.
Pick: Under 221.0
