Michigan’s first two losses to the Spartans played out exactly the same. Michigan’s vaunted ball-screen defense faltered against Cassius Winston, who got whatever he wanted. The Wolverines tried to vary their ball-screen coverages in the rematch and forced Winston to turn it over several times in the first half, but he was in control after halftime and led a 25-4 run that decided the game.
Michigan State tore through Wisconsin on Saturday and has been playing at an elite level. The Spartans match up well against Michigan on both ends. Winston’s mid-range game is so good, and although he isn’t the most athletic guard, he has been able to turn the corner against Michigan’s big men on pick-and-rolls. Meanwhile, the Spartans have switched ball screens instead of hedging, as they traditionally used to — and it has paid off. Tillman is a perfect center for the scheme, with the ability to stay in front of guards and defend on the perimeter.

The only question is whether Michigan State can successfully reintegrate Nick Ward, who missed the first two games with a broken hand. He returned Friday against Ohio State and is now coming off the bench — playing 25 minutes total in two games due in part to foul trouble — and averaging five points and 2.5 rebounds. Ward can be a source of instant offense in the post, but Michigan center Jon Teske is tough to score against down low, and Ward doesn’t appear to have the same defensive versatility as Tillman.

Bitter rivals square off Saturday at 1 p.m. ET when the Michigan State Spartans and Wisconsin Badgers battle in the 2019 Big Ten Tournament semifinals. The Spartans are 8-1 in their last nine games, which includes an eight-point road victory over the Badgers. Meanwhile, Wisconsin enters Saturday’s semifinal having won four consecutive games. The Badgers will come out fighting, hoping to knock off the No. 1-seed Spartans to advance to the Big Ten Tournament championship game. However, Michigan State also has a lot to play for as the Spartans are trying to strengthen their case for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Oddsmakers list Michigan State as a 5.5-point favorite, with the over-under for total points set at 128.5 in the latest Michigan State vs. Wisconsin odds. Before you make any Michigan State vs. Wisconsin picks or 2019 Big Ten Tournament predictions, see what SportsLine senior analyst Josh Nagel has to say.

A Nevada-based expert and winner of multiple handicapping contests with more than 20 years of experience in the sports wagering industry, Nagel specializes in picking college athletics. He enters the weekend with a sparkling 45-29 record in against-the-spread college basketball picks for SportsLine members. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now Nagel has locked in on Michigan State vs. Wisconsin, and entered a strong against-the-spread pick that you can only see at SportsLine.

For Saturday, Nagel has taken into account that Michigan State has won eight of its last nine games, which includes a dominant 67-59 victory over Wisconsin on the road. The Spartans were led by Cassius Winston, who recorded 23 points, six assists and six rebounds against the Badgers.

In order for the Spartans to advance to the Big Ten title game, they’ll need another huge performance from Winston. His play on both ends has helped the Spartans get back on track after losing three straight Big Ten contests earlier this season. Michigan State’s defense has been impressive overall during that span, holding its opponents to 63 points or less in six of their past nine games, and if the Spartans can hold the Badgers to another low number on Saturday, they’ll have a great chance to get the win and cover at the United Center.

But just because Winston and the Spartans are playing well on both sides of the court doesn’t mean they’ll cover the Michigan State vs. Wisconsin spread in the 2019 Big Ten Tournament semifinals on Saturday.

For the Badgers to pull off the upset against Michigan State on Saturday, they’ll need a big game from senior Ethan Happ. The 6-foot-10 forward leads the team in points (17.8), rebounds (10.4), assists (4.7) and steals (1.1). He’s a one-man wrecking crew for the Badgers, having recorded 21 double-doubles this season.

The Badgers boast a 14-7 record when Happ collects a double-double, but he’ll need help from his teammates if Wisconsin wants a shot at winning its first Big Ten title since 2015. In Friday’s four-point victory over Nebraska, sophomore forward Nate Reuvers had one of his best performances of the season, racking up 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting. If Reuvers and his teammates can make Michigan State’s defense stay honest, the Badgers will have a great shot at pulling off the upset.

Saint Louis came into this season with high expectations and although the Billikens struggled at times during conference play, this is a very talented team that had solid wins against Seton Hall, Butler, & Oregon State this season. The Bonnies have over achieved this season as it looked like they would be more in rebuilding mode after losing both Jaylen Adams & Matt Mobley in the offseason, however, the Bonnies have used a solid defense that ranks 21st in scoring defense & 27th in defensive FG% to reach the Championship game.

The 6-seed Saint Louis Billikens will be looking to punch their first ticket to the NCAA Tournament since 2014 after upsetting the Davidson Wildcats, 67-44, to advance to the A-10 Men’s Championship game. Saint Louis was incredible on the defensive end agianst the Wildcats and was able to pull away in the 2nd half after taking a 49-33 lead with 10:58 left in regulation. Saint Louis shot 48.1% from the field while holding Davidson to just 25.9% shooting from the field and 23.3% shooting from beyond the arc in the victory. Leading the way for the Billikens was Javon Bess who had 24 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, and a steal.

The 4-seed St. Bonaventure Bonnies come into the championship game playing some of their best basketball of the season and had no trouble reaching the Finals after defeating the 8-seed Rhode Island Rams, 68-51, on Saturday. St. Bonaventure used a 13-0 run at the end of the 1st half to trail by just a 29-27 margin at halftime and was able to pull away in the 2nd half after a 14-0 run gave the Bonnies a 64-46 lead with 3:20 left in regulation. St. Bonaventure shot 39.6% from the field while holding Rhode Island to just 35.2% shooting from the field and 26.3% shooting from beyond the arc. Leading the way for the Bonnies was Kyle Lofton who had 23 points, 5 assists, and 1 rebound.

Coming into their game against Rhode Island, St. Bonaventure was averaging 66.5 ppg on 43.3% shooting from the field. The Bonnies were averaging 6.1 three-pointers per game on 32.6% shooting from beyond the arc. Offensively, St. Bonaventure has been led by Courtney Stockard.

Defensively, St. Bonaventure was holding their opponents to an average of 63.7 ppg on 40.5% shooting from the field. The Bonnies had a rebound margin of 0.6 and a turnover margin of 0.9.St. Bonaventure defeated Saint Louis in their only match-up in the regular season as the Bonnies defeated the Billikens by a 66-57 margin at home in early March.

Javon Bess scored 24 points for the Billikens (22-12), who play fourth-seed St. Bonaventure in Sunday’s championship game. St. Bonaventure defeated Rhode Island 68-51 in the other semifinal. The Bonnies beat Saint Louis 66-57 in their only regular-season meeting on March 9.

“You (have) a lot of respect for St. Bonaventure and how they’re playing,” Saint Louis coach Travis Ford said.Saint Louis last reached the Atlantic 10 championship game in 2013, when the Billikens beat VCU, 62-56.

Jon Axel Gudmundsson, who was named the Atlantic 10’s Player of the Year on Tuesday, led the Wildcats (24-9), who hope for a bid to the NIT, with 15 points and Luka Brajkovic added 12.I’m always the optimist,” Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. “I thought we could have 20 (wins).”

The Billikens are 24-7-1 ATS in their last 32 Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bonnies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

This game has all the makings of a defensive battle, however, between the fact that St. Bonaventure has won 9 out of 10 games and defeated St. Louis just over a week ago, I’m taking St. Bonaventure to cover this small spread. Good Luck!
Tramaine Isabell Jr. had 19 points and eight assists to spark sixth-seeded Saint Louis to a 67-44 rout of second-seed Davidson in the Atlantic 10 tournament semifinals on Saturday.

The Bulldogs put up an average of 80.6 points per game on the season. Yale collects 39 rebounds a night while dishing out 17.3 assists per contest. The Bulldogs are below average on the defensive end of the floor, ranking 213th in scoring defense by allowing 72.8 points a night. Miye Oni leads Yale with 17.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists a night. Alex Copeland (13.4 points, 3.3 assists), Blake Reynolds (11.3 points, 4.6 rebounds) and Jordan Bruner (10.2 points, 8.6 boards) each are averaging in double figures as well.

Paul Atkinson, Azar Swain and Trey Phills each contribute at least seven points per contest. Yale is shooting 49.4 percent from the field as a team this season. The Bulldogs knock down an average of 7.8 three pointers a night while sinking 37 percent from beyond the arc. Yale is sinking 72.5 percent of their chances at the free throw line, a number that the team has improved over the course of the season.

The Bulldogs were the top scoring team in the conference, averaging 77.3 points per game during league play, and ranking 26th in the nation with 80.5 points per game. Yale also shoots it well from deep, hitting 37.3 percent from the 3-point line. However, the Bulldogs use that ability to space the floor to create opportunities to slash and establish in the post, where they do the majority of their damage.

Harvard and Yale meet in the finals of the Ivy League Tournament on Sunday at noon ET. The Bulldogs are 4.5-point favorites, with the total at 145. Both teams had matching 10-4 records in the conference, but Harvard swept the season series to earn the top seed; Yale is the 2-seed. It’s the biggest rivalry in the league and for the first time it has center stage of a conference tournament final with an NCAA Tournament bid on the line. So before you make your Harvard vs. Yale picks, be sure to check out the predictions from SportsLine guru Michael Rusk.

Rusk built his name by exploiting flaws in public betting. With his economics and statistics background, Rusk uses multiple algorithms pooling with recency bias to produce profitable picks. That’s exactly what “The Prodigy” has been doing recently with his strong 28-16 run on his college basketball picks. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

For Sunday’s showdown, Rusk knows that one big advantage for Harvard is its perimeter shooting. In the first two matchups against Yale, the Crimson hit 43.5 percent of their shots from beyond the 3-point line. Bryce Aiken has been their biggest catalyst all season, averaging 21.9 points per game. After a difficult performance in the first game, he bounced back to have a big night at Yale on Feb. 23.

Aiken hit 6 of 11 from the field and 3 of 6 from 3-point range, while also hitting 13 of 15 from the free throw line for 28 points in an 88-86 win. The Crimson led the conference in 3-point shooting, so if they can get another big game from Aiken and supplementary scoring from beyond the arc, they should control the action Sunday.

But just because the Crimson swept the regular-season series, doesn’t mean they are a lock to cover the spread.

Paul Atkinson, Jordan Bruner and Blake Reynolds have good size and strength on the interior that they will look to exploit against a smaller Harvard lineup. Yale is also the more veteran team, so it will look to use the experience edge to adjust its plan of attack after making serious ground from its 16-point loss on Feb. 1 to the two-point loss on Feb. 23.

We can tell you Rusk is leaning to the under, but his much stronger play is on the spread. He has identified a critical X-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. You absolutely need to see it before locking in any college basketball picks.
The top two teams in the Ivy League take the floor in the championship game of the conference tournament to earn the automatic bid in March Madness. The second-seeded Yale Bulldogs battle the top-seeded Harvard Crimson Sunday afternoon up in Connecticut. Yale advanced to the final as they dropped third-seeded Princeton 83-77 Saturday afternoon in their last game. Harvard dropped fourth-seeded Penn 66-58 in their last contest in the semifinals Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs own a 78-65 advantage in the all-time series between the teams but it was the Crimson taking the last four meetings, including an 88-86 road win in the last matchup on February 23.

Yale survived a wild back and forth game with Princeton in the semifinals of the Ivy League Tournament to advance here as they seek their first NCAA Tournament bid since 2016. The Bulldogs improved to 21-7 on the season with the victory. Yale was up 12 at the half only to find themselves go scoreless for more than six minutes in the early stages of the second half. The Bulldogs trailed 67-60 with 5:33 to play in the game before closing the contest on a 23-10 run to get the win. Yale shot 50.8 percent from the field, including five of 16 from three-point range, and knocked down all 16 free throws in the victory. Miye Oni led the Bulldogs with 23 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the win.

The Tennessee Volunteers are averaging 82.3 points on 49.9 percent shooting and allowing 67.9 points on 39.5 percent shooting. Grant Williams is averaging 19.2 points and 3.2 assists while Admiral Schofield is averaging 16.4 points and 6.3 rebounds.

The 2019 SEC Tournament comes to an end with a championship matchup between No. 3 seed Tennessee (29-4) and No. 5 seed Auburn (25-9) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. The Vols stayed alive in their chase for a No. 1 seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament when they knocked off Kentucky in the semifinals Saturday. The Tigers, meanwhile, stand to see a nice bump in their Big Dance seeding thanks to this strong SEC Tournament run. The latest odds show the Vols as five-point favorites with the over-under for total points set at 150. Before locking in any picks of your own, first check out the SEC Tournament Championship predictions from SportsLine’s Michael Rusk.

Rusk built his name by exploiting flaws in public betting. With his economics and statistics background, Rusk uses multiple algorithms pooling with recency bias to produce profitable picks. That’s exactly what “The Prodigy” has been doing recently with his strong 28-16 run on his college basketball picks. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now Rusk has zeroed in on Tennessee vs. Auburn. He has taken into account Tennessee’s dramatic 82-78 victory over Kentucky on Saturday to punch its ticket to the SEC Tournament finals. The Vols trailed by seven points with 4:03 to go before furiously rallying back to stun the Wildcats in Nashville. That marked Tennessee’s second win over the Wildcats in March.

Getting over that hurdle was a huge accomplishment for the Vols, but Tennessee won’t be content to leave with anything short of its first SEC Tournament title since 1979. To finish the job, the Vols will need SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams (19.2 ppg) and senior Admiral Schofield (16.4 ppg) to be at their best. Another solid performance from point guard Jordan Bone, who went off for 18 points and five assists against the Wildcats, would go a long way in helping UT as well.

But just because the Vols had the better season overall, that’s no guarantee they’ll be able to cover the spread in the title game on Sunday.

Auburn, coached by former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl, knocked off the Vols in the regular-season finale, 84-80. That game put the Tigers in great shape to make the 2019 NCAA Tournament, and their strong run in Nashville that has included wins over Missouri, South Carolina and Florida has done nothing but help their seeding.

In total, Auburn enters Sunday on a seven-game winning streak and has won nine of its past 10. With an offense that averages around 80 points per game, the Tigers have shown they can compete with just about anybody. They nailed almost 40 percent of their 3-pointers in the recent win over Tennessee, and a similar shooting effort on Sunday could easily lead to a cover, if not an outright upset and SEC title for the Tigers.
We can tell you Rusk is leaning to the under, but his much stronger play is on the spread. He has identified a critical X-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. You absolutely need to see it before locking in any college basketball picks.
Tennessee basketball is facing a familiar scene Sunday afternoon in Nashville.

For the second time in eight days, the Vols will run into an Auburn team with a championship on the line. And they’ll be hungry for a different result than they experienced on March 9 in Alabama.

“Those guys denied us a regular-season championship,” guard Jordan Bone said. “We have to go into (Sunday) understanding that can’t happen again. We are competing for another championship.”
Bruce Pearl strutted off the court, climbed the stairs to the ESPN set and pumped his fist at no one in particular in an almost packed Bridgestone Arena Saturday.

Auburn fans cheered for their coach. A cluster of nearby Tennessee fans howled, “Bruuuuuce!” just as they did when he led the Vols to the SEC championship game 10 years ago. And even some Kentucky fans tried to lean over the security railing to pose for selfie photos with him.

Pearl has been called a winner and a cheater, sometimes by the same people. But in the SEC, he’s a celebrity to all fan bases, even those that despise him.

Errol Spence Jr meets Mikey Garcia in the main event at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday, headlining a big PBC fight card, with the main bouts airing on FOX pay-per-view.

How to watch Spence vs Garcia
The card will start at 8 pm ET on FS1, with a fight between former heavyweight titleholder Charles Martin and Gregory Corbin. The pay-per-view portion of the card starts at 9 pm ET.

The PPV is priced at $74.95, and can be purchased online.

The event will also air in select theaters via Fathom Events.Mikey Garcia said he craves “big challenges” and “big obstacles,” which explains why the four-division champion is moving up two weight divisions to challenge Errol Spence Jr. for the IBF welterweight championship Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The two unbeaten boxers meet in the main event of the first pay-per-view telecast offered by Fox as part of a four-year partnership with Premier Boxing Champions. Garcia (39-0 with 30 knockouts) holds the WBC 135-pound lightweight title and wants to add Spence’s 147-belt to his collection.

“Getting this victory will leave my name in the history books,” Garcia said this week. “I’m here to make history, and this fight does that. No other fighter dares to do what I’m doing and that’s what I’m about.”

Perhaps Garcia, 31, is being too brave for his own good. Trained by his older brother Robert, Garcia is easily one of the sport’s elite fighters, having won belts at featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight. He is a master technician with the ability to break down an opponent with timing and power. The Oxnard, Calif., native is also confident.

“I’ve got all the tools and skills needed to beat him,” Garcia said. “I’m better than him in every way. When it comes to timing, when it comes to reflexes, defense, you name it, I’m better.”

That has to be proven. Spence, a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team, has been impressive just about every time he has entered the ring. Like Garcia, Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) is a puncher and a thinker with explosive power. This will be his third defense of the IBF title.With all of the talk regarding Mikey Garcia’s daring move up two weight divisions and whether IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. can live up to his reputation as the boogeyman who everyone avoids, the time if finally here to focus on the actual matchup.

From the standpoint of craft and technical artistry, Saturday’s title bout (Fox PPV, 9 p.m. ET) between unbeaten and pound-for-pound ranked welterweights is among the best fights that can be made in the sport for lovers of the sweet science. The fact that both Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs) and Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) possess both fight-altering and fight ending power, respectively, only sweetens the pot.

Mikey Garcia is here in the hometown of welterweight world titleholder Errol Spence Jr., but it was Garcia who drew the biggest cheers from the thousands of fans at AT&T Stadium on Friday afternoon as two of boxing’s pound-for-pound best stepped on the scale to weigh in for their much-anticipated showdown.

The undefeated fighters in their primes will meet Saturday (9 p.m. ET, Fox PPV) in the main event of the fourth boxing event to take place at AT&T Stadium, and both were animated and seemingly ready to go as living legend Robert Duran stood between them and raised the belt over his head.

Spence (24-0, 21 KOs), 29, from nearby DeSoto, Texas, was 146¼ pounds ahead of the third defense of his 147-pound world title; Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs), 31, of Moreno Valley, California, was a career-heavy 145½ pounds as he goes for history.

Garcia, a reigning lightweight world titleholder (135 pounds), is seeking to win a world title in a fifth weight class. He has won belts at featherweight, junior lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight and can become only the third fighter in boxing history to win world titles at featherweight and welterweight, joining Hall of Famer Henry Armstrong and obvious future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao.Garcia had never weighed more than 139½ pounds, which he registered for a fight last March, when he outpointed undefeated Sergey Lipinets to claim a junior welterweight belt. After that fight Garcia returned to lightweight and easily outpointed undefeated Robert Easter Jr. in July to unify two titles before calling Spence out and making the audacious move up two weight divisions to fight him in his hometown.

“We’re both ready, we both put in our work, we’re ready to get in the ring [Saturday night]. That’s what we’re ready to do,” Garcia said.

The fact that he was the crowd favorite on supposedly enemy turf was not lost on Garcia.

“It’s amazing to have this kind of reception in his own hometown,” Garcia said. “I told you my fans follow me, my fans support me. I love every single one of them. I’m doing this for them. These fights are for them, and that’s what I’m about. So I really appreciate the love and support.”

Spence, a much bigger man than Garcia, said he had a point to prove against Garcia.

“My message to the world is, I am the best fighter in the world. I’m pound-for-pound the best. I’m No. 1, and I’m gonna do what I’ve been doing to these fighters, which is breaking them down, beating them up and knocking them out,” Spence said.

As for seemingly having fewer fans than Garcia on Friday even though he is at home, Spence shrugged it off.

“It don’t matter. The fans can’t fight for him,” he said. “I don’t care where we were fighting at. I’m still gonna do what I always do, and that’s dominate like I did in Sheffield.”

Spence was referring to when he won his world title in May 2017 by traveling to Sheffield, England, the hometown of titlist Kell Brook, and grinding him down, breaking the orbital bone in his face and stopping him in the 11th round.

After Spence and Garcia faced off, Spence walked away and seemed to have the expectation that he would do the same to Garcia as he did to Brook, mouthing to some in the crowd, “I’m gonna f— him up.”

In the co-feature, former super middleweight world titleholder David Benavidez (20-0, 17 KOs), 22, of Phoenix, weighed 167 pounds, one under the division limit, for his 10-round fight with J’Leon Love (24-2-1, 13 KOs), 31, of Las Vegas, who was 168¼ pounds. Watching from the audience was world titleholder Anthony Dirrell, who recently won the vacant belt, which had been stripped from Benavidez for a positive cocaine test. If Benavidez, who will be fighting for the first time in 13 months because of a suspension after that positive test, wins, Dirrell could make his first defense against him.

Former bantamweight world titlist Luis Nery (28-0, 22 KOs), 24, of Mexico, who will be making his United States debut and has knocked out nine consecutive opponents, weighed on the division limit of 118 pounds for his 10-rounder with former junior bantamweight world titlist McJoe Arroyo (18-2, 8 KOs), 33, a southpaw from Puerto Rico, who was 117¼ pounds.

The opener will pit former three-time heavyweight title challenger Chris Arreola (37-5-1, 32 KOs), 38, of Riverside, California, who was 239¼ pounds, against Haiti native Jean Pierre Augustin (17-0-1, 12 KOs), 31, who weighed 226½ pounds.

For the Fox Sports 1-televised preliminary bout, former heavyweight world titleholder Charles Martin (25-2-1, 23 KOs), 32, of Carson, California, weighed 254½ pounds and opponent Gregory Corbin (15-0, 9 KOs), 38, of Dallas, was 263¼ pounds.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing nearly 50 percent shooting in their last five games and now go on the road where they’re losing by an average of 11.8 points this season. The Dallas Mavericks haven’t had a ton of success lately themselves during their seven-game losing streak, but they’ve been competitive and are still winning by an average of 2.4 points at home. The Mavericks are 21-12-1 ATS at home. It’s tough to lay points with losing teams this time of year, but the Cavs are brutal on the road, while the Mavericks have played their best by far at home. So, Mavs or pass for me.The Cavs have lost four of their last five games. … Kevin Love did not play in the first meeting between the two teams. Love has scored in double figures 10 times in his 11 games since returning to the Cleveland lineup on Feb. 8. … Love has posted a double-double in 19 of his last 21 appearances against Dallas. … The Cavs are 6-2 in their last eight matchups versus the Mavericks, which includes a 3-1 mark at American Airlines Center. … The Cavs had their streak of at least 10 made 3s come to an end at 14 games Thursday night. … Ante Zizic has posted 17 double-digit scoring outings this season, including each of the last three games. … Jordan Clarkson is tied with Los Angeles sixth man Lou Williams with 60 games in double figures. … Cleveland is tied with Phoenix, each with six, for the fewest road wins in the NBA this season.Dallas is riding a seven-game losing skid. … Rookie Luka Doncic has 37 20-point games this season. … Doncic became the first player in franchise history to garner the Rookie of the Month award four times in a season.

He averaged just 6.8 points prior to the break. … Dallas has hit at least five 3-pointers in a franchise-record 250 consecutive regular-season games.The high the Cavaliers were riding after beating the Toronto Raptors has completely worn off. They have lost their last two games, and on Thursday night, they were completely obliterated by the Magic, 120-91.

It’s back to reality.

The Cavaliers only shot 40.7 percent from the floor and a ridiculously poor 7-of-31 from 3-pointer. However, the one part of the game that likely sent Cavaliers coach Larry Drew over the edge was the fact that they gave up 26 points off 16 turnovers. There were simply too many mistakes on the floor for the young Cavaliers to overcome, and they really never even gave themselves a chance to win the game.

Forward-center John Collins (19.9 points per game) has been playing well of late. He had 27 against Memphis, 23 vs. New Orleans on March 10 and 33 vs. Brooklyn on March 9. Point guard Trae Young (18.3 ppg) also had a big game against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, scoring 22.

Who wins Hawks vs. Celtics? And which side of the spread can you bank on in nearly 70 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Hawks vs. Celtics spread to jump on, all from the advanced model that is up more than $4,000 on its NBA picks this season, and find out.

Grizzlies vs Wizards : The NBA Boston Celtics may be extremely shorthanded for Saturday’s matinee against the Atlanta Hawks thanks to a flu bug that’s straight-up ravaged their depth, according to the team’s official injury report released Friday.

The Boston Celtics go for a season sweep when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. The Celtics (42-27) have won all three meetings and six of the last seven against the Hawks (24-45). Tip-off from TD Garden for this Eastern Conference matchup is at 12:30 p.m. ET. Boston is a 10.5-point favorite in the latest Celtics vs. Hawks odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 231.5. Before making any Celtics vs. Hawks picks of your own, you need to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, is crushing its NBA picks. It entered Week 22 of the 2018-19 NBA season with a sterling 240-187 record on all top-rated picks, returning almost $4,000 to anybody following them. And it has been particularly red-hot on its A-rated NBA picks against the spread, entering Week 22 on a strong 54-42 run. Anybody who has followed it is way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Celtics vs. Hawks. We can tell you it is leaning under, but it’s also generated an extremely strong pick against the spread that cashes in nearly 70 percent of simulations. That one is available exclusively at SportsLine.

The model has taken into account that Celtics are tough to beat at home, going 25-10 at TD Garden. Boston is 28-13 against Eastern Conference foes and has been hot of late, winning five of its last seven games overall. The Hawks, meanwhile, are 11-24 on the road and 13-31 within the conference. The Celtics are led by guard Kyrie Irving (23.5 points per game), who’s already had two big games against the Hawks this season, scoring 56 total points.

Also a thorn in the Hawks’ side has been forward Jayson Tatum (16.1 points per game), who had 19 in the first meeting and 22 in the second.

But just because Boston has dominated the Hawks this season doesn’t guarantee it will cover the Celtics vs. Hawks spread on Saturday.

That’s because the Hawks are averaging 123.6 points over the last 11 games. They never trailed in a 132-111 win over Memphis on Wednesday. Atlanta has won two in a row, is 5-5 over the last 10 games, and has won three of its last five road games.
