NBA Over/Under Picks for Tuesday, March 15th 2022

NBA Over/Under Picks for Tuesday, March 15th 2022

In last week’s 53 NBA games, 30 went Over the posted game total with 23 games going Under. Teams averaged 226.8 points per game and closing totals came in at 227.1, the highest of the season.

There has been an increase in pace since the All-Star break and nine games have now had a closing total of 240 or higher. The Under went 6-3 in those games.

With four games tonight, will any of them follow last week’s trend? Here are the Over/Under picks for Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Indiana Pacers

Grizzlies vs. Pacers Predictions

Pick: OVER 232

The Grizzlies have won six of their last eight games and have moved into second place in the Western Conference. Ja Morant has been on fire and the Grizzlies rank fourth in the NBA in scoring (114.4 ppg).

But, Morant is listed as doubtful tonight. Don’t let that scare you though. The Grizzlies are 12-2 in 14 games without Morant this season. In their last two games without their star – one in February and one in January – the Grizzlies scored 123 and 121 points.

The Pacers are 1-3 in their last four games, but they have averaged 123.5 points over those four. Like the Grizzlies, Indiana trends Over with 15 of their last 20 going Over the total. Nine of the Pacers last 10 home games have gone Over.

For Memphis, 12 of the last 17 game totals have gone Over. In the last ten games in this series, the total has gone Over.

Detroit Pistons vs. Miami Heat

Pistons vs. Heat Predictions

Pick: UNDER 216.5

Detroit ranks 29th in scoring offense (103.6 ppg). Miami has the fourth-best defense in the NBA allowing just 104.8 points per game. Four of the Heat’s last six games have gone Under. For Detroit, five of their last six totals have gone Under.

In the last ten games in this series, only four have gone Under but the average final has produced 208.9 points. The last three games (all played this season) have had an average final combined score of 203 points.

Phoenix Suns vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Suns vs. Pelicans Predictions

Pick: OVER 225.5

The best team in basketball is coming off a game in which they scored 140 points. Phoenix has seen the Over hit in 11 of its last 16 games. Remember, the Suns have the fifth-highest scoring offense in the NBA.

In their last ten games, New Orleans has scored fewer than 111 points just once. The Pelicans are averaging 120 points a game over those ten games. Four of their last five games have resulted in totals going Over.

In the series with Phoenix, eight of the last 11 games have seen the Over cash. Each of the last five Suns- Pelicans games played in New Orleans has produced an Over.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Orlando Magic

Nets vs. Magic Predictions

Pick: UNDER 232

This total is just too high for tonight’s Nets-Magic game. Orlando ranks 28th in the NBA in scoring averaging 104.2 points per game. Five of the Magic’s last six games have resulted in the total going Under.

The Nets have gone Over the total in 11 of their last 16 games, but the Nets won’t score enough to make up for the Magic tonight. The two teams have played three times this season. The average final combined score of those games is 211.3 points. None of the three games came anywhere close to tonight’s total.
