Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/6/22
DAL (-9) at DET (9)
Pick: Bet $10 DET ML
Total: 219.5 (Lean Under – 219)
Predicted Score: DAL 107 – DET 112
Notes: Dallas currently sits in the 4 spot in the West. They have a chance to get to the 3 spot and some losses could drop them to the 5.
So the Mavs still have something to play for.
Winners of 4 of their last 5, the Mavs has played better on the road as of late and improved to 22-18 away from Dallas this season.
This will be their 4th straight road game as they face off against a Pistons team that has won 3 games in a row.
Cade Cunningham continues to improve as the season goes on and is a bright spot for this Pistons franchise.
Can Detroit win this one? Maybe.
I certainly like them to keep it much closer than the 9 here so I’ll take a shot on the big plus line and bet $10 on the Pistons moneyline.
BOS (-6.5) at CHI (6.5)
Pick: Bet $10 BOS ML
Total: 224 (Lean Over – 232)
Predicted Score: BOS 120 – CHI 112
Notes: Time to rip the band aid off. The #2 seed Celtics head to Chicago to take on a possible first round opponent.
Chicago has faded in the second half of the season – dropping down to the 6th seed.
The loss of Lonzo Ball has been brutal for them. And it does not look like he’s coming back this year.
DeMar DeRozan is doing whatever he can to keep the Bulls afloat. He’s coming off a 40-point game and he’s averaging 28.4 points per game over his last 10.
But the Celtics’ stingy defense could be too much for him and the Bulls tonight.
Boston is #1 in defensive efficiency and #1 in opponent’s effective field goal percentage.
Chicago is 3rd in 3-point shooting % on the season but recently, that drops to last in the league.
I like the Celtics to grab the win today.
$10 moneyline bet on Boston.
BKN (-7) at NYK (7)
Pick: Lean NYK
Total: 232 (Lean Under – 227)
Predicted Score: BKN 114 – NYK 113
WAS (10.5) at ATL (-10.5)
Pick: Lean WAS
Total: 231 (Lean Under – 231)
Predicted Score: WAS 112 – ATL 119
OKC (17.5) at UTA (-17.5)
Pick: Lean OKC
Total: 224.5 (Lean Over – 231)
Predicted Score: OKC 115 – UTA 116
PHX (-3) at LAC (3)
Pick: Lean LAC
Total: 229.5 (Lean Over – 233)
Predicted Score: PHX 116 – LAC 117
Calgary Flames (-265) at Anaheim Ducks (215)
Pick: Bet $10 Calgary
Notes: Calgary broke a 3-game losing streak by beating the Kings in LA two days ago. Now they head over to Anaheim to take on a Ducks team that has lost 4 of their last 5 games.
The last time these teams met, Calgary put up 6 goals. But that Calgary offense has not been as dynamic lately.
That could be part of a strategy to focus more on defense heading into the playoffs. Calgary is giving up only 2.62 goals per game the past few months.
Jacob Markstrom will be in goal tonight and he’s been great lately.
Anaheim has also struggled to score – meaning this could be a low-scoring game.
As such, I would not hate a chickenshit play on the Ducks. But I’ll take the Flames for the close win.
$10 bet on Calgary.
Tampa Bay Lightning (-146) at Washington Capitals (122)
Pick: Lean Tampa
Detroit Red Wings (240) at Winnipeg Jets (-300)
Pick: Lean Winnipeg
Seattle Kraken (202) at St. Louis Blues (-250)
Pick: Lean Seattle
Vancouver Canucks (142) at Vegas Golden Knights (-172)
Pick: Lean Vegas
