The run into the playoffs ramps up with 3 very interesting cross-conference battles coming up. The Pacers host the Jazz, Harden meets Giannis while the Cavs look to get the better of a in-form Nuggets outfit.

NBA Feature Previews

1. Utah @ Indiana (11:05am)
Defence has been the name of the game for these two franchises over the last fortnight. The Under is 6-1 in the last 7 for both teams and by some margin. Neither side has reached 100 points in 4 of the Jazz’s last 5 outings while the Pacers have held their last 3 opponents to an average of 93ppg. The Wolf is absolutely shocked to see the total set at 200.5 and says he cannot get enough on the Unders!
Tip: Under 200.5 points ($1.91)

2. Houston @ Milwaukee (12:05pm)
The Rockets are legit people! They cruised to a 10 point win in Oklahoma City and extended their win streak to 16! The Bucks have been known to end a streak or two in the past and this looms as a scheduling loss for the Rockets. It would take a brave man to bet against them but there is a method to the madness. The Rockets are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 when on the immediate turn around with the home team going 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings between the two franchises. The Bucks have won the last two meetings in Milwaukee with Antetokounmpo averaging 27/11/6 in his last 4 against the Rockets. The Rockets do a great job packing the paint so look for Giannis to be relentless in his pursuit of getting to the rim. 
Tip: Milwaukee +6 ($1.92)

3. Cleveland @ Denver (2:35pm)
We were all over the Nuggets when the two sides met in Cleveland less than a week ago and The Wolf says it will be much of the same in the rematch. He has no concerns about the Nuggets being on the second of a back-to-back, especially with a 12-5 ATS record in their last 17 when backing up. In addition the clash with Dallas was more of a training run despite the scoreline. The Over is 8-4 in their last 12 when backing up and is now 14-3 in their last 17 overall. They blew the total out of the park in Cleveland and will be doing the same here. Over is 8-3 in Cavs last 11 road games and 4-0 in last 4 meetings. Overs, Overs, Overs!
Tip: Over 230 points ($1.91)
