What’s Happening Today in Sports Betting?

Two Game 2s and One Game 3 on Wednesday

Two favorites won and covered and one did not on Tuesday night. The one that did not was the biggest of them all, the Phoenix Suns gave up home court advantage with a Game 2 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies took care of their affairs, but the Suns were favored by as many as 10 and lost by 11.

Two games went under the closing total and one went over, though the Hawks/Heat game fell in the middle, so early over bettors won and late under bettors were also victorious.

Here’s the Wednesday schedule:

7:00 p.m. ET – Nets at Celtics (-3.5, 226)
8:00 p.m. ET – 76ers (-2, 216.5) vs. Raptors
9:30 p.m. ET – Bulls vs. Bucks (-10, 225)
