Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/18/21

 

NBA

Sports Bet Picks for 4/18/21

NOP (1) at NYK (-1)

Pick: Bet $20 NYK

Total: 217 (Lean Over – 225)

Predicted Score: NOP 109 – NYK 116

Notes: New Orleans is just 9-17 on the road this season. The Knicks are riding a 5-game winning streak and is one of the better home teams this year.

 

MIN (10) at LAC (-10)

Pick: Lean LAC

Total: 231 (Bet $20 Over – 241)

Predicted Score: MIN 115 – LAC 126

Notes: Kawhi Leonard is questionable. LAC could still cover.

 

Leans

IND (2.5) at ATL (-2.5)

Pick: Lean IND

Total: 234 (Lean Over – 239)

Predicted Score: IND 119 – ATL 120

Notes: McDermott and Turner are questionable for Indy today. Atlanta has 6 players on the injured list but John Collins has been upgraded to questionable.

 

BKN (-4) at MIA (4)

Pick: Lean MIA

Total: 222 (Lean Over – 225)

Predicted Score: BKN 114 – MIA 111

Notes: James Harden will be ready in a few more games but will miss today for sure. Jimmy Butler is also questionable in this one. Without him, Brooklyn should cruise.

 

POR (-4) at CHA (4)

Pick: Lean CHA

Total: 219.5 (Lean Under – 216)

Predicted Score: POR 109 – CHA 107

Notes: No Damian Lillard for Portland today.

 

OKC (11.5) at TOR (-11.5)

Pick: Lean TOR

Total: 220.5 (Lean Under – 218)

Predicted Score: OKC 103 – TOR 115

Notes: I was shocked to see I had Toronto covering this one but here I am. OKC has lost 9 in a row and have looked overall awful while doing so.

 

HOU (1) at ORL (-1)

Pick: Lean HOU

Total: 219 (Lean Over – 230)

Predicted Score: HOU 117 – ORL 113

Notes: Game of the day here. John Wall and Eric Gordon will sit out for Houston making it even more fun to watch.

 

SAC (8.5) at DAL (-8.5)

Pick: Lean SAC

Total: 230 (Lean Under – 225)

Predicted Score: SAC 110 – DAL 115

Notes: Has Luke Walton been fired yet?
