TomBox Sports Betting Algorithm NBA Picks For Sunday 4/18/2021
There are five evening games on the NBA slate this evening. And our TomBox AI algorithm doesn’t mind weekends because it doesn’t know the difference. All it knows is simulating each game thousands of times and making predictions that will earn you money.
Tonight’s player prop bet will focus on the 2nd half of the NBA TV doubleheader, with Anthony Edwards and the Minnesota Timberwolves hosting Kawhi, PG, and the Los Angeles Clippers.
Minnesota is no match for a Clippers team in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. But Edwards is a bright spot who has emerged as a Rookie of the Year favorite after LaMelo Ball’s injury. The TomBox algorithm still expects a comfortable Clippers win, but the Wolves will be led in scoring by Edwards’ 24.4 points. Take the over, even if he claims not to know who A-Rod is.
Portland is expected to run away and hide in this game, shooting 51.3% from the field to Charlotte’s 44.9%, commit eight fewer turnovers, and make 2.6 more three-pointers. There won’t be many stings in the Hornets tonight, with the TomBox algorithm projecting a 120.7-95.8 victory for the Blazers despite 28.9 points from Terry Rozier.
It’s not always been easy for the Raptors this season. But we expect them to hold the Thunder to 38.6% shooting for the game, have a 7.4 rebound edge, and should commit 4.2 fewer turnovers. That’s a recipe for success for the Raptors, who are projected to come away with an easy 100.2-87.8 win, covering the 5.5 with ease.
If you dislike defense, then do we have the game for you! We expect both teams to shoot over 50% from the field with a low amount of turnovers. And they should combine for 31 made three-pointers. The TomBox algorithm projects a very close game in Sacramento. Our model gives the Sacramento Kings a minuscule 124.8-124.7 edge over the Dallas Mavericks. But we’re only focusing on the over here, which should comfortably hit.
