Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/2/22
MIA (-2.5) at CHI (2.5)
Pick: Bet $10 CHI ML
Total: 219.5 (Lean Over – 223)
Predicted Score: MIA 111 – CHI 112
Notes: Miami currently sits atop the Eastern Conference but are only a game ahead of the Bucks.
Chicago used to sit at the top but have dropped down to the 5 spot. They risk falling into 6th if they can’t finish strong.
They have managed to win 2 in a row.
But beating Washington and needing OT to beat the Clippers is not the sign of a team turning things around.
Especially because the latter needed a 50-point effort from DeMar DeRozan to secure the win.
For Miami, they bounced back from a losing streak by winning two in a row – annihilating the Kings and then getting a very good win over Boston.
The Heat are healthy and ready to prove they can get back to the Finals in a non-bubble season.
The Bulls aren’t as lucky. Lonzo Ball still remains injured and Zach Lavine is banged up too.
It does look like Lavine will play today though and I’m hoping he will be enough to help Chicago get a much-needed win.
$10 moneyline bet on the Bulls.
CHA (5) at PHI (-5)
Pick: Lean CHA
Total: 230.5 (Lean Under – 222)
Predicted Score: CHA 112 – PHI 110
CLE (-2) at NYK (2)
Pick: Lean NYK
Total: 216 (Lean Over – 221)
Predicted Score: CLE 108 – NYK 113
BKN (-2.5) at ATL (2.5)
Pick: Lean ATL
Total: 241.5 (Lean Under – 232)
Predicted Score: BKN 114 – ATL 118
UTA (-2) at GSW (2)
Pick: Lean GSW
Total: 219 (Lean Under – 216)
Predicted Score: UTA 108 – GSW 108
Los Angeles Kings (102) at Winnipeg Jets (-122)
Pick: Bet $10 Los Angeles
Notes: The Kings enter game 3 of their road trip. They got a nice won over the Flames in their last one.
LA has been a pretty good road team this season and that’s been a reason why they are second in the Pacific right now.
The Kings are having some scoring issues though and they needed a shootout to win that aforementioned game over the Flames.
Part of that has been injuries.
Thankfully for them, their defense has been pretty damn good.
Cal Peterson was in goal for the win over the Flames and is slated to be in goal again today. It seems the defense steps up when he’s in goal.
But it might not be critical for today’s game seeing that Winnipeg’s offense has not been good either.
I expect a low-scoring one here. Eye the under for sure.
For me, I’ll take the Kings for the win.
$10 bet on LA.

Pick: Lean Carolina
Toronto Maple Leafs (-295) at Philadelphia Flyers (235)
Pick: Lean Toronto
