Making moves as March approaches is the key objective for every NBA side and as another midweek fixture list rolls around, there is plenty on the line for punters and NBA betting apps alike. 

The Dallas Mavericks will be hoping to maintain their playoff push, as they travel to Toronto to take on the Raptors, the Indiana Pacers host the New Orleans Pelicans and the Chicago Bulls welcome Eastern rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The landscape is starting to look a little bleak for the Toronto Raptors, who need some inspiration if they are to break into the Eastern playoffs and they welcome the Dallas Mavericks next. Very few NBA betting apps expected the Raptors to struggle as much as they have this season, and they will be eager to silence a few doubters here. However, the Dallas Mavericks are ticking along nicely, with Luka Doncic in fine form and they should pick up an important road win here.

Two sides that have been hugely impressive in their respective conferences this season face off, as the Indiana Pacers take on the New Orleans Pelicans. For the Pacers, keeping up with the sides above them in the East is their key objective and they currently have their top 8 status completely in their own hands. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans have wobbled a touch in recent weeks, but they are going well in the West and will relish this challenge against the Pacers. However, the Pacers have won 4 on the spin and they should have too much for the Pelicans at home here.

Chicago Bulls vs Cleveland Cavaliers Best Bet

Cleveland Cavaliers to win the match @ 1.80 (BlueBet)

The aforementioned moving season has been epitomised by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have been in incredible form of late and now sit inside the top 3 in the East. They travel to Chicago Bulls next, a side who are always tracked by both domestic and international betting sites and who have more than an outside chance of breaking the top 8. However, the Cavaliers look to have the bit between their teeth at the moment and they should pick up another important win on their travels in this one.
