Max’s Sports Bet Picks for 4/7/21

 

NBA

Sports Bet Picks for 4/7/21

CHA (-4.5) at OKC (4.5)

Pick: Bet $20 CHA

Total: 214 (Lean Over – 217)

Predicted Score: CHA 113 – OKC 104

Notes: Gordon Hayward will miss at least 4 weeks for Charlotte and after losing Lamelo Ball for the season, this is a team that is tough to bet on. Except against OKC – who has more than waived the white flag for the season. I have Charlotte winning this game by 9 – which is enough wiggle room for me to bet $20 on them to win. A bet on the Hornet-Bobcats.

 

SAS (6.5) at DEN (-6.5)

Pick: Bet $20 DEN

Total: 223.5 (Lean Over – 230)

Predicted Score: SAS 110 – DEN 120

Notes: Denver easily handled Detroit last night and they should easily handle San Antonio tonight. Or, you know, maybe not. I have not had success betting against San Antonio. But lately, I haven’t had success betting. Period. But I like this Denver team right now. They are healthy and they found a great way to use Aaron Gordon in their offense. $20 bet on the Nuggets.

 

MIN (3.5) at IND (-3.5)

Pick: Lean MIN

Total: 227.5 (Lean Under – 221)

Predicted Score: MIN 110 – IND 111

Notes: Pacers just got stomped by the Bulls last night. D’Angelo Russell is probable for the game tonight.

 

WAS (-3.5) at ORL (3.5)

Pick: Lean ORL

Total: 224.5 (Lean Under – 216)

Predicted Score: WAS 107 – ORL 109

Notes: Bradley Beal is questionable for tonight. Otto Porter Jr. is out for Orlando.

 

NYK (3.5) at BOS (-3.5)

Pick: Lean NYK

Total: 214.5 (Lean Under – 212)

Predicted Score: NYK 107 – BOS 105

Notes: Celtics lost to the Sixers last night.

 

NOP (10.5) at BKN (-10.5)

Pick: Lean NOP

Total: 230.5 (Lean Under – 224)

Predicted Score: NOP 110 – BKN 114

Notes: Pelicans lost to the Hawks last night. James Harden will be out at least 10 days but there is a good chance Kevin Durant plays tonight.

 

DAL (-11.5) at HOU (11.5)

Pick: Lean HOU

Total: 224.5 (Lean Under – 224)

Predicted Score: DAL 117 – HOU 107

Notes: Porzingis is listed as day-to-day. John Wall is listed as questionable tonight.

 

MEM (2.5) at ATL (-2.5)

Pick: Lean MEM

Total: 229 (Lean Under – 229)

Predicted Score: MEM 114 – ATL 115

Notes: Memphis beat the Heat last night and Atlanta beat the Pelicans. Ja Morant left the game with a back problem.

 

UTA (-1.5) at PHX (1.5)

Pick: Lean PHX

Total: 225.5 (Lean Under – 224)

Predicted Score: UTA 111 – PHX 113

Notes: Phoenix has won 6 in a row and are 2.5 games behind Utah for the top seed in the West.

 

NHL

Sports Bet Picks for 4/7/21

Montreal Canadiens (127) at Toronto Maple Leafs (-140)

Pick: Bet Toronto

Notes: With Carey Price getting the start against the Oilers the other night, Jake Allen should get the start tonight. Which certainly gives me a little pause here. But Toronto has been very good at home and Jack Campbell is slated to start in goal for them. So I would also eye the under here but my play is $20 on the Maple Leafs.

 

Arizona Coyotes (105) at Los Angeles Kings (-116)

Pick: Lean Los Angeles

Notes: The Coyotes got the best of the Kings on Monday and now have won 3 in a row. The Kings have lost 3 straight and are only 6-7-4 at home this season while Arizona has found some wins on the road.

 

Edmonton Oilers (-184) at Ottawa Senators (164)

Pick: Lean Edmonton

Notes: The Oilers will look to bounce back from a close loss on Monday to Montreal. Ottawa surprisingly has a winning home record but Edmonton has been very good on the road and should nab a win tonight.

 

Vegas Golden Knights (-145) at St. Louis Blues (130)

Pick: Lean Vegas

Notes: Vegas just beat the Blues 6-1 on Monday. I like them again tonight against a Blues team that is 4-9-4 at home. Robin Lehner hasn’t been unstoppable for the Knights but he’s been more reliable than Jordan Binnington. The Blues are in a losing streak right now that will end at some point. Probably not tonight. I’d be on this one if I wasn’t on another chalk game already.

 

Colorado Avalanche (-187) at Minnesota Wild (167)

Pick: Lean Colorado

Notes: Colorado does seem to have Minnesota’s number. And right now, they just look like they are rolling. Still, its hard to ignore a team that is 13-4 at home – especially after Carolina bounced back last night after a rare home loss.

 

MLB

Sports Bet Picks for 4/7/21

TOR (-185) at TEX (169)

Pitchers: H. Ryu vs. K. Gibson

Pick: Bet $20 TOR

Notes: The Blue Jays were stunned by Texas yesterday but have Ryu on the mound today. This is, I won’t say, a “must-win,” but it’s close. Toronto cannot afford to lose games to terrible teams when they have the Yankees in front of them. I like the Blue Jays to bounce back today and yeah, the payout will suck, but a $20 bet on Toronto.

 

MIL (-106) at CHC (-102)

Pitchers: B. Woodruff vs. K. Hendricks

Pick: Bet $20 MIL

Notes: I hate betting against the Cubs to lose two in a row at home. But this Cubs team has not been hitting the ball well and if Kyle Hendricks cannot go more than a few innings like his last start, this could get ugly. Woodruff did not have a stellar start himself but Milwaukee’s bullpen can keep them afloat if needed. $20 bet on the Brewers.

 

SF (138) at SD (-151)

Pitchers: K. Gausman vs. B. Snell

Pick: Bet $20 SD

Notes: I took a flyer on the Giants last night and it didn’t pay off. Now I am on the other side today as Blake Snell takes the mound for the Padres. Snell didn’t go 5 innings last time out but looked good in the time he was out there. So hopefully he can go a little bit deeper into this game and lead the Padres to a win. $20 bet on San Diego.

 

BAL (173) at NYY (-190)

Pitchers: J. Means vs. Taillon

Pick: Bet $20 BAL

Notes: The Yankees were on cruse control yesterday with Cole on the mound and the offense clicking. But I am a fan of John Means and I like the contact that the Orioles’ batters have been making so far this season. The Yankees have the power but Baltimore will get some baserunners and chances to score. I like them to sneak out the win today. $20 bet on the Orioles.

 

MIN (-168) at DET (154)

Pitchers: K. Maeda vs. M. Boyd

Pick: Bet $20 MIN

Notes: This game looked like a trap yesterday and today, it doesn’t. As such, I am jumping on board with Minnesota. Matt Boyd did have a solid start to open the season but when this dude is off, he bleeds out runs. I am confident that the Twins bats will come alive today and put pressure on him. I also am optimistic that Maeda will have a strong start after showing promise last season. $20 bet on the Twins.

 

ATL () at WSH ()

Pitchers: M. Fried vs. E. Fedde

Pick: n/a

 

PIT (189) at CIN (-209)

Pitchers: C. Kuhl vs. L. Castillo

Pick: Lean CIN

 

TB (108) at BOS (-117)

Pitchers: R. Yarbrough vs. N. Eovaldi

Pick: Lean BOS

 

KC () at CLE ()

Pitchers: J. Junis vs. S. Bieber

Pick: n/a

 

LAD (-150) at OAK (138)

Pitchers: T. Bauer vs. J. Luzardo

Pick: Lean OAK

 

NYM (137) at PHI (-149)

Pitchers: D. Peterson vs. A. Nola

Pick: Lean PHI

 

STL (-112) at MIA (104)

Pitchers: J. Flaherty vs. P. Lopez

Pick: Lean STL

 

CWS (-158) at SEA (145)

Pitchers: D. Keuchel vs. J. Dunn

Pick: Lean CWS

 

ARI (-103) at COL (-105)

Pitchers: M. Bungarner vs. A. Senzatela

Pick: Lean ARI
