Saturday’s NBA slate is a bit smaller than usual. There are five games to choose from, starting with the Warriors vs. the Hornets at 8 p.m. ET and wrapping up with the Wizards vs. the Blazers at 10 p.m. ET.
Let’s dive into some of my favorite wagers on DraftKings Sportsbook for Saturday’s NBA slate.
This game has plenty of potential for points scored.
For starters, the Warriors have played at the second-fastest pace in the league this season. Charlotte is average in that department, so this is a solid pace-up spot for them.
More importantly, the Hornets will be without Devonte’ Graham in this contest. Graham is just a role player at this point in his career, but he has been vital for the Hornets on defense. They’ve allowed an additional +11.6 points per 100 possessions with Graham off the court this season, which puts him in the 96th percentile in that department, per Cleaning the Glass. No Graham means more LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier, who are much less inclined on the defensive end.
I think the Warriors should be able to cover the spread as two-point favorites, but I like the chances of this game going over even more.
This game sets up as the exact opposite of Hornets-Warriors.
Miami remains without Goran Dragic,
