05 April 01:30 Brooklyn Nets v Minnesota Timberwolves

The Nets may have won their last 3 games but the last one was not convincing at all Spencer Dinwiddie said they were lucky to get a win in that game against the Utah Jazz. With the Nets being a terrible rebounding team and not having the best rim protection, I’m going with the Timberwolves as underdogs here. Minnesota has more offensive depth than the Nets, the reason they average more points per game and have a field goal percentage of 49%, they are top 5 in the league. I see the Timberwolves learning from how Utah played the Nets in the fourth quarter and taking this game here, either winning or covering the spread.

Suggested Bet: Minnesota Timberwolves +3.5

05 April 02:00 Houston Rockets v Denver Nuggets

The Rockets have been the worst team to bet on the spread the whole season and it’s bizarre because their lines are huge most of the time. The Nuggets are going to win this game it’s just a matter of how many points. Nikola Jokic is going to return for this game but even if he’s ruled out the Nuggets have more than enough talent to win comfortably, they showed this in their win against the Warriors.

Suggested Bet: Denver Nuggets -9.5

05 April 03:00 Utah Jazz v LA Lakers

Every game the Lakers have been playing recently has been a must-win game and this game is no different. The Jazz have lost 4 of their last 5 while the Lakers have won 4 of their last 5. Im going with the team that wants it more here, the Lakers know that a playoff spot is still very possible considering the way some of the Western teams have been losing some games. This Lakers team is healthy unlike the Jazz who are without some of their players due to injury, take the Lakers for the away win here.

Suggested Bet: LA Lakers ML

05 April 04:00 Golden State Warriors v Oklahoma City Thunder

The Warriors are 5th in the West and they know the Pelicans and Lakers are right behind them so they cannot afford to lose this game. When it comes to betting on Golden State you have to take them only when they play at home, they have been one of the best home teams this season. This game could be an over-game, considering how both sides are in the top 5 pace and top 5 points per game. Overall take the Warriors to win this must win the game.

Suggested Bet: Golden State Warriors ML/ Over 235
