Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Friday, April 8th (2022)

Apr 8, 2022 - 2:18 PM

Tonight starts the last weekend of the NBA regular season. That means teams are playing for better seeds, home-court advantage, and better draft picks. Teams are going to limit key players’ minutes this weekend. Bettors will want to make sure they are checking what players will be playing, and it’s a great time to lower the number of betting units until the playoffs begin. Let us look into the best value bets for tonight. 

Bet $10 on Any NBA Game, Win $200 if Either Team Hits a Three Pointer>>

1. Chicago Bulls -2 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Bulls need to win this game tonight. They are the 6th seed, but they are in a position they can become the 5th if they win out and Toronto loses out. That can be a big difference because of how home-court works in the NBA playoffs. Chicago and Toronto play around the same time, so the Bulls will probably play for the better seed tonight. The Hornets being one of the most inconsistent teams in the NBA gives the advantage to the Chicago Bulls tonight.

2. Miami Heat -1 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Heat own the one seed and have clinched the conference. The Heat have plenty of depth that if they restrict minutes on their star players, they can still win this game. The Atlanta Hawks have clinched a playoff birth, but their seed is yet to be determined. The Hawks will be facing the hottest teams in the league no matter what see they get. That means there is a good chance they limit minutes too. The betting value goes to Miami since they have more depth. 

3. Phoenix Suns +4 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Suns have nothing to play for tonight, but it is hard to imagine that the best team in the NBA does not try to win this game going into the playoffs. Booker, Ayton, and Paul have already been sitting out, but the Suns have still been competing. That is what we see tonight. Cameron Payne, Mikal Bridges, and JaVale Mcgee can all play with the best in the league every night, and that is why this game stays close.
