Phoenix Suns vs. Boston Celtics Odds, Spread and Total

Kevin Durant's 45-point game in Phoenix wasn't enough to beat Boston earlier this season, and now the Suns are road dogs (6-5 ATS this season) against a Boston team that is 29-3 at home this season.

The C's are also 18-14 ATS as home favorites, winning those games by an average margin of 15.4 points per game.

Washington Wizards vs. Houston Rockets Odds, Spread and Total

Houston has been elite at home this season, going 10-5-1 against the spread as a home favorite and 21-11 straight up in 32 home games this season.

Washington is 20-13-1 ATS as a road dog, but the team is just 11-54 overall this season.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Chicago Bulls Odds, Spread and Total

Chicago is playing the second game of a back-to-back, a spot that the team is 6-5 ATS this season.

The Bulls are also solid as home dogs, 8-6-1 against the spread, but they have failed to cover in three of their last four games in that spot. Los Angeles is 12-10 ATS as a road favorite this season.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Milwaukee Bucks Odds, Spread and Total

This is going to be a tough game for Philly, who is still down Joel Embiid and failed to score over 80 points in two straight games against the New York Knicks this week.

Milwaukee has struggled as a home favorite (13-15-1 ATS), but it should win this game given Philly's injury issues.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Odds, Spread and Total

Oklahoma City failed to cover at home in its last game, but the team is No. 3 in the NBA in terms of ATS record at home, going 22-11 this season.

This is the second night of a back-to-back for Dallas, who played the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday. Dallas is is 7-3 ATS in that spot this seasn -- the second-best mark in the NBA.

New York Knicks vs. Portland Trail Blazers Odds, Spread and Total

This is an interesting duel of two of the best trends (against the spread) in the NBA.

Portland is playing the second night of a back-to-back, and the team is 9-2 ATS in that spot this season -- the best mark in the league.

Meanwhile, the Knicks are 9-3 against the spread as road favorites, and the team is 13-2 straight up with OG Anunoby in action (he returned to the lineup on Tuesday). This should be an interesting game to figure out.
