The Golden State Warriors hit the road on Tuesday to take on the Orlando Magic. The Warriors are having a great year this season as they sit at 47-24 on the year. The Magic are just 19-53 on the season. The Warriors have lost two games in a row, while the Magic won their last contest after a three-game losing streak. This will be a tough game for the Warriors, but they should be right in it. Take the Warriors to cover the +8 point spread.
The Chicago Bulls make a short trip north to take on the Milwaukee Bucks on the road. The Bulls are 42-29 on the season, while the Bucks are 44-27 so far this year. The Bulls have been one of the surprises of the NBA as they have really had a very good season. The Bucks have played just like everyone expected and have put themselves in a very good spot to make a title run this season. Look for the Bulls to give the Bucks all they can handle this evening but the Bucks are just a bit better. Take the Bucks to cover the -6.0 point spread at home.
The Los Angeles Clippers hit the road to take on the Denver Nuggets in what should end up being a very good game. The Clippers are 36-37 on the season and are holding onto eighth place in the Western Conference. The Nuggets are 42-30 on the season and sit at seventh in the Western Conference. The Clippers head into Denver as they are struggling a bit right now. They are on a three-game slide and have lost four of the last five games. The Nuggets have struggled at home as of late and have lost three home games in a row. Look for the Clippers to play well enough to cover in this one. Take the Clippers to cover the +6.5 spread.
The New York Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils this evening in a game that will be much better than it looks on paper. The Rangers are 40-18-5 on the year thus far and are 4-1 in their last five games. The Devils are 22-35-5 right now and are on a three-game losing streak. This should be a game that is not close, but the Devils will look to make it close. In the end, talent should win out. Take the Rangers to cover the -1.5 puck line.
The St. Louis Blues take on the Washington Capitals this evening on the road in a game that pits two very similar teams against each other. The Blues are 34-18-9 on the year, while the Capitals are 35-19-10. The Blues are on a three-game skid while the Capitals lost the first game of their homestand. This game should be a very good one that could go either way. Take the Blues to cover the +1.5 puck line.
The Vegas Golden Knights head off to take on the Winnipeg Jets this evening in a game that could have some playoff implications as both of these teams could use a win to jump-start themselves.

This is going to be a game that comes down to the wire, but I think the Golden Knights will be able to break through. Take the Golden Knights to cover the +1.5 puck line.
