With 3 huge games on Saturday, our man brings you his NBA preview for each game complete with betting tips.

Portland Trailblazers @ Toronto Raptors 12pm (ESPN)

Damian Lillard lead the Blazers has become increasingly hard to stop as he’s led Portland to 12 wins from their last 16 games.

Averaging 25 points and 8 assists in the last month, which means he is usually a good prop bet to meet his assists line overs.

The Blazers have also won 4 in a row on the road, which fills them with confidence coming into this one.

The Raptors keep on winning games, so they get to keep featuring in my daily previews.

Their impressive home record has again been added to, with a 26-6 mark in Canada now. There is so much offensive weaponry on a team that prides itself on grinding on defence.

 Players to watch out for here are Pascal Siakam and Kawhi Leonard. They will play a big part in the result of this one

I’m picking the fixed winning margin here. It’s going to be a close game and so Either team to win by 6 or less at $2.58 with BetEasy is my prediction here.

Washington Wizards @ Boston Celtics - 12pm

The Wizards are 3 and a half games out of playoffs and that’s probably the most important stat about them right now.

They obviously need wins to make the playoffs, but the bad news is they are one of the worst teams on the road in the NBA. An abysmal 8-24 away record makes this a tough hill to climb.

The forward depth of the Wizards in Trevor Ariza, Jeff Green, Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker will need to take the scoring load off Bradley Beal to get this done.

Boston are in free fall after four straight losses with one of them being to lowly Chicago.

An interesting stat to further confound Boston fans is that they’ve lost all of Kyrie Irving’s last six games.

In the last six games where he has not suited up, the Celtics have come out on top.

Is this just a coincidence or is Kyrie Irving just not clicking with the Celtics anymore? This game will be the test.

I’m taking the Wizards to cover the game line of +8.5 with BetEasy. Their away record is bad, but it doesn’t account for how close some of those games have been.

Milwaukee Bucks @ Los Angeles Lakers - 2:30pm (ESPN)

Say what you want about road teams in the NBA, but Milwaukee is on a fantastic away winning streak.

They’ve won 12 of their last 13 games away from home.

That would be impressive in any building, but to do it on the road shows just how good this Milwaukee team is.

Injury concerns with Giannis haven’t really stopped them. He’s suffering from knee soreness and missing every 2nd or 3rd game but Nikola Mirotic is more than willing to step in and replace him.

Winning is imperative here for the Lakers, for obvious reasons.

A decent 18-12 home record may help them as they attempt to pull a rabbit out of a hat against the Bucks.

LeBron will be ready to carry this team on his back after his 33 points 7 rebounds and 10 assists against the Pelicans.

While I think the Lakers have a chance but at $1.52 for the Bucks on BetEasy is just too good of value to give up.

My multi for the day:

Either team under 6.5 Portland/Raptors – $2.58
Wizards +8.5 – $1.90
Bucks to win – $1.52

Combined Price: $7.46
