It’s Friday and time to see what the experts are cooking up for St. Patrick’s Day.

Starting in Charlotte, the Philadelphia 76ers will travel to take on the struggling Hornets. Charlotte has lost their last three games, while Philadelphia is doing the opposite. The 76ers have won six straight. 9 of our 15 experts like the 76ers to cover a -10.5 spread. 

Charlotte has simply not been the same team since LaMelo Ball had to end his sophomore season early with an ankle injury. The Hornets will also be without their rookie center Mark Williams for a fourth straight game due to a right thumb injury.

The Atlanta Hawks are set to host the Golden State Warriors tonight in State Farm Arena. Our experts like the Hawks to cover -4 at home, mostly because of the Warriors’ inability to perform on the road. Golden State is just 7-27 on the road versus 29-7 at home. 

Golden State will be without Draymond Green due to a one-game suspension, and Andrew Wiggins for personal reasons. Stephen Curry is also listed as questionable.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Washington Wizards, and this one should have a playoff-like atmosphere. The Cavs are -5.5 favorites, and that is where our experts lean. 

The Wizards sit a half-game ahead of Indiana and Chicago for the final spot in the play-in tournament, so it is a must-win for Washington if they hope to keep their position. On the flip side, they have already fallen twice to the Cavaliers this season. 

Cleveland is 7-2 at home in their last nine games, so the Cavs money line is also a play to watch for. 

Our experts are split 10-5 in favor of the Chicago Bulls -2.5 over the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Bulls are looking to avoid the season sweep and also looking to close in on a spot in the play-in tournament. 

The largest split between our experts is in the Pelicans-Rockets game. 12 of our 15 experts are riding with Houston +5.5 on Friday. The Rockets have won their last two games and will be trying for their first three-game win streak since December 2021. Houston has one of the worst defensive rating in the NBA and allows the most points per game in the league, so the over (228.5) is one to look for.

The Boston Celtics will take on the Portland Trail Blazers, and our experts love Boston. 11 of 15 experts are picking Boston -4.5 because of their efficiency on both ends of the floor. The Celtics rank fourth in offensive and defensive rating this season. 

Boston may be short-handed, with Robert Williams III out with a hamstring injury and Jason Tatum questionable with a hip injury.
