Best bets to consider for March 4 NBA slate

These bets seem like quality options for Wednesday night’s NBA schedule.

Draftkings Sportsbook will have bets for Wednesday night’s NBA slate, as usual. We picked out a couple options that seem most likely to help you rake in the cash. Here’s what we think you should consider:

Brooklyn Nets cover spread vs. Memphis Grizzlies as 1.5-point favorites (-110)

The Nets are playing good basketball and narrowly lost to the Miami Heat on the road over the Weekend before topping the Boston Celtics in TD Garden on Tuesday. Now they’ll return home, where they’ve won five of their last six home games by at least 10 points. The margin for error is small, so I say you take this bet and consider making it a parlay with something else.

Kevin Love double-double vs. Boston Celtics (+110)

Love has faced the Celtics three times this season and is averaging 18.0 points and 8.7 rebounds against them. Boston is dealing with injuries across the board, as Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown will not play. Jayson Tatum isn’t a lock to play, but is listed as questionable. Andrew Drummond is out for the Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson is listed as questionable, so this could be a big night for Love against an undermanned Celtics team missing one of their top rebounders.

Caris LeVert top scorer vs. Memphis Grizzlies (+250)

LeVert totaled a career-high 51 points on the road against the Boston Celtics Tuesday and will return home against a Memphis team that’s not particularly strong on the wing. Memphis doesn’t have a dynamic, go-to scorer, so it’ll likely be a toss up between LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie (+300). I think LeVert will stay hot and ride the momentum though.
