Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, April 9th (2022)

Apr 9, 2022 - 1:37 PM

Tonight there are four NBA games, and most of the teams tonight are not playing for anything. That means tonight is a good night to lower the number of betting units and double-check players’ playing time. There is still plenty of betting value in these games, but bettors might need to dig a little more to find it. Let us dig into the games tonight to find the best betting value.

1. Sacramento Kings +13 (-135 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

These two teams are playing for nothing. The Clippers have clinched a playoff berth, and their seed cannot change. That means the Clippers players are on limited minutes. Once the Clippers get up in this game, they will slow down the pace of play. That will keep this game tight within the final minutes. The Kings players are playing for jobs at this point and need to treat this game like it. The Kings have more reasons to try in this game.  

2. Philadelphia 76ers -13.5 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The 76ers have a reason to play tonight. Philadelphia can still move up to the third seed, and that could be a big difference between playing a hot Toronto basketball team or an injury-plagued Chicago team. The 76ers will still limit minutes, but they will have a rotation that gives them a chance to increase their seeding. The 76ers have betting value because they have something to play for in this matchup. 

3. San Antonio Spurs +7 (-110 at DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Spurs have been playing great basketball lately. They have been winning against good teams, and the last time they lost by more than seven points was March 18th. The Warriors are a hurting team right now. The Warriors will try to win this game while limiting the minutes to as little as possible, and that will keep this game close and the Spurs within seven points.
