Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/5/22

Sports Bet Picks for 4/5/22



ATL (4) at TOR (-4)

Pick: Bet $10 TOR ML

Total: 226.5 (Lean Over – 230)

Predicted Score: ATL 113 – TOR 117

Notes: The Raptors enter the final weeks of the season right behind the Bulls for the 5 spot in the East.

They have won 7 of their last 10 games and despite a loss in their last outing – trust me I know – this team has played some pretty good basketball lately.

Atlanta has also played well lately – winning 5 games in a row and making strides to get the 7 seed in the play-in tournament.

The Hawks are 15-23 on the road this season but they have won 3 of their last 4 road games.

Still, the Raptors are solid home team and I think they hold the fort tonight.

$10 moneyline bet on the Raptors.


POR (4) at OKC (-4)

Pick: Bet $10 OKC ML

Total: 223.5 (Lean Over – 231)

Predicted Score: POR 112 – OKC 119

Notes: The Blazers have lost 7 straight games and its hard to imagine they will win many games here on out.

This is a team that completely imploded after trading McCollum. Their closest game lately was a 3-point OT loss to the Thunder.

Other than that it’s been a bunch of double-digit blowouts.

OKC got a big win over the Suns on Sunday and did so without either of their future stars.

Both Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh Giddey are out for the season.

Despite that, OKC should still grab the win today.

$10 moneyline bet on the Thunder.


SAS (7.5) at DEN (-7.5)

Pick: Bet $10 SAS ML

Total: 234.5 (Lean Over – 236)

Predicted Score: SAS 121 – DEN 115

Notes: The Spurs sit 2 games up on the Lakers in the play-in tournament and if there was ever a time I was a Spurs fan, it’s now.

The Nuggets have won 4 of 5 games and have moved up to the 5 seed in the West.

Jokic appears to be the favorite to win MVP – something Joel Embiid apparently is salty about.

So I know it’s hard to fade a team, at home with the MVP leader on it.

Especially by backing the Spurs.

But San Antonio has also played some winning basketball lately and with this big plus line, it’s hard to resist.

$10 moneyline bet on the Spurs.



PHI (-12) at IND (12)

Pick: Lean IND

Total: 231.5 (Lean Under – 231)

Predicted Score: PHI 119 – IND 112


CLE (-9) at ORL (9)

Pick: Lean ORL

Total: 214.5 (Lean Over – 215)

Predicted Score: CLE 109 – ORL 106


CHA (5) at MIA (-5)

Pick: Lean CHA

Total: 233.5 (Lean Under – 225)

Predicted Score: CHA 112 – MIA 113


HOU (18) at BKN (-18)

Pick: Lean HOU

Total: 244 (Lean Under – 229)

Predicted Score: HOU 115 – BKN 114


MIL (-4.5) at CHI (4.5)

Pick: Lean CHI

Total: 229.5 (Lean Over – 232)

Predicted Score: MIL 115 – CHI 117


WAS (11.5) at MIN (-11.5)

Pick: Lean WAS

Total: 233.5 (Lean Under – 226)

Predicted Score: WAS 110 – MIN 116


MEM (5) at UTA (-5)

Pick: Lean MEM

Total: 222 (Lean Over – 227)

Predicted Score: MEM 115 – UTA 112


NOP (-8.5) at SAC (8.5)

Pick: Lean SAC

Total: 225.5 (Lean Under – 216)

Predicted Score: NOP 111 – SAC 105


LAL (11.5) at PHX (-11.5)

Pick: Lean LAL

Total: 232.5 (Lean Under – 230)

Predicted Score: LAL 112 – PHX 118



Ottawa Senators (-115) at Montreal Canadiens (-104)

Pick: Bet $10 Ottawa

Notes: In the matchup of the night, the Senators come into town as the hotter of the two teams.

The Senators have won 3 out of 5 including 2 straight wins over the Red Wings.

Montreal got a shocking win over the Lightning in their road closer 3 days ago.

They return home where they are 10-19-4 on the season.

Ottawa has struggled offensively all season but they are on a bit of a hot streak lately. It will come crashing down but I like them to hold on for one more day.

$10 bet on the Senators.


Boston Bruins (-200) at Detroit Red Wings (164)

Pick: Bet $10 Boston

Notes: Boston has won 3 in a row and 9 of 11 games after getting a win yesterday. They head to Detroit where the Red Wings have lost 6 in a row.

Linus Ullmark got the start yesterday for the Bruins so backup Jeremy Swayman will be in the net today.

Swayman has had a very good season and should overmatch a lackluster Detroit offense.

I use lackluster as a compliment, really. Because now I get to talk about their defense and goaltending.

Which is complete dogshit.

Alex Nedeljkovic has allowed four or more goals in 3 consecutive starts. Probably make that 4.

The line is lower because of the back-to-back and backup goalie situation for Boston. I just don’t think those things matter.

$10 bet on the Bruins.



Columbus Blue Jackets (106) at Philadelphia Flyers (-128)

Pick: Lean Columbus


Colorado Avalanche (105) at Pittsburgh Penguins (-126)

Pick: Lean Pittsburgh


Carolina Hurricanes (-275) at Buffalo Sabres (220)

Pick: Lean Carolina


New York Rangers (-162) at New Jersey Devils (134)

Pick: Lean New York


Toronto Maple Leafs (146) at Florida Panthers (-178)

Pick: Lean Toronto


Minnesota Wild (-120) at Nashville Predators (100)

Pick: Lean Minnesota


New York Islanders (114) at Dallas Stars (-137)

Pick: Lean Dallas


Edmonton Oilers (-196) at San Jose Sharks (162)

Pick: Lean Edmonton
