Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Saturday, April 23rd (2022)

Apr 23, 2022 - 12:31 PM

Two of the games last night were great to watch. Trae Young hit a game-winner with 4.4 seconds left on the clock after struggling for the first two games of the series. Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton carried the Devin Booker-less Suns past the Pelicans to go up 2-1 in the series. Tonight four games are going, and hopefully, this playoff continues to be exciting. 

DraftKings NBA Playoffs

Philadelphia 76ers Moneyline -150 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Philadelphia 76ers are up 3-0 in the series and want to finish with a clean sweep. They are playing some of the best basketball we have seen all year with Maxey, Harden, and Embiid healthy. Toronto doesn’t have the tools to stop Embiid. When they try to stop Embiid, it opens up Harden and Maxey to do whatever they want. Until Toronto proves they can stop Embiid, the betting value is on the 76ers. 

Boston Celtics Moneyline +135 at DraftKings Sportsbook

This pick is purely on betting value. The Celtics have been the best team in the NBA since the All-Star break. They are 19-5 since the break. The Nets are 14-12 since the All-Star break. That barely puts them in the top 15 teams. The best team in the NBA right now as an underdog is always a great play to make. I think it is a close game, but the Celtics will get it done. 

Minnesota Timberwolves +3 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

I feel bad for the Timberwolves after they gave up a 26-point lead and lost the last game. I think Minnesota comes into this game looking to prove themselves. The Timberwolves have the players and depth to win games in this series. We have seen streaks of greatness throughout this series. They need to play four quarters of complete basketball. The Timberwolves have a chance to win outright, but I’ll take the points.
