Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/2/21
DAL (-5.5) at NYK (5.5)
Pick: Bet $20 DAL
Total: 213.5 (Lean Over – 219)
Predicted Score: DAL 113 – NYK 106
Overview: Derek Rose is questionable for NYK. Dallas has been good on the road lately (7-3 over the last month), but this is their 4th road game in a row and Knicks have been better at home lately (5-2 the past month). The Knicks shooting has been terrible lately. Dallas should get the win and cover this game. Luka and Porzingis are on fire lately. $20 bet on the Mavs.
CHI (13.5) at UTA (-13.5)
Pick: Bet $20 UTA
Total: 228.5 (Lean Under – 222)
Predicted Score: CHI 104 – UTA 118
Overview: Zach Lavine is questionable tonight. Donovan Mitchell should be back for Utah today after missing Wednesday’s game. At least the team won’t need to get on a flight today. The Bulls are on a terrible losing streak while the Jazz keep on winning – particularly at home. Jazz will win and I think they cover this (but maybe bet the first half to be safe and avoid a backdoor cover). $20 bet on the Jazz.
LAL (4.5) at SAC (-4.5)
Pick: Bet $20 SAC
Total: 221.5 (Lean Under – 220)
Predicted Score: LAL 106 – SAC 114
Overview: Even Andre Drummond has learned from LeBron that it’s meaningless to play right now. He’s out for LA. The Kings shit the bed on the road against the Spurs, but I am backing them for a bounce back game today. $20 bet on the Kings.
GSW (2.5) at TOR (-2.5)
Pick: Lean TOR
Total: 226.5 (Lean Over – 227)
Predicted Score: GSW 112 – TOR 115
Overview: Kyle Lowry is out for TOR. Warriors played last night and lost – making them 9-16 on the road. Raptors are only 9-12 at home and are 2-13 the past month. Toronto’s EFG% is getting better though.
HOU (9.5) at BOS (-9.5)
Pick: Lean HOU
Total: 223.5 (Lean Under – 221)
Predicted Score: HOU 110 – BOS 111
Overview: John Wall is questionable tonight for HOU. Boston is 13-9 at home but have lost their last 2. Celtics are a .500 team the past month and Houston is 2-15 overall. Boston slaughtered them last time they played but Houston’s EFG% is much better than Boston’s right now.
CHA (3.5) at IND (-3.5)
Pick: Lean CHA
Total: 222.5 (Lean Under – 214)
Predicted Score: CHA 106 – IND 108
Overview: Domantas Sabonis is listed as day to day. Pacers have lost 2 in a row and are only 8-13 at home this season. Hornets are decent on the road but road EFG % has dipped lately.
MIN (6.5) at MEM (-6.5)
Pick: Lean MIN
Total: 231.5 (Lean Under – 226)
Predicted Score: MIN 112 – MEM 114
Overview: Neither team is very good right now. I’d avoid this one.
ATL (-1.5) at NOP (1.5)
Pick: Lean NOP
Total: 223.5 (Lean Over – 224)
Predicted Score: ATL 111 – NOP 113
Overview: John Collins is out and will miss some time. Josh Hart is banged up after last night’s game. Brandon Ingram missed yesterday’s game and Lonzo Ball did too. Atlanta has not played well lately but nabbed an OT win yesterday over the Spurs. New Orleans lost to Orlando last night in OT.
OKC (12.5) at PHX (-12.5)
Pick: Lean OKC
Total: 219 (Lean Over – 220)
Predicted Score: OKC 107 – PHX 113
Overview: Phoenix has been winning but not really covering. They should win again, and they should be able to beat up a depleted OKC team. But can’t bet them.
MIL (-3.5) at POR (3.5)
Pick: Lean POR
Total: 236.5 (Lean Under – 225)
Predicted Score: MIL 113 – POR 112
Overview: Portland lost 3 in a row recently but over the past month have played better basketball. Milwaukee looks to be pacing themselves for the postseason. Could be the year they finally do something since they are not focusing on the regular season. Should be a close one today.
Washington Capitals (-165) at New Jersey Devils (145)
Pick: Lean Washington
Toronto Maple Leafs (-140) at Winnipeg Jets (127)
Pick: Bet Toronto
Calgary Flames (128) at Edmonton Oilers (-142)
Pick: Lean Calgary
St. Louis Blues (207) at Colorado Avalanche (-235)
Pick: Lean Colorado
San Jose Sharks (109) at Los Angeles Kings (-120)

Javier (HOU) – J. Luzardo (OAK)
