Hopefully, our NBA picks are helping you win some money. The playoffs are just around the corner but there is still lots of value in targeting the underdogs.
Los Angeles Lakers +10.5
Is it crazy to bet on the Los Angeles Lakers who have no reason to play hard? Maybe! But as a sports bettor, we don’t care about mental health. All we care about is making money. So, with that, +10.5 is too much to give Lebron James and with Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka out, I think this is a spot to take the points.
Sacramento Kings +8.5
The Celtics are the Steelers of the NBA – Full of drama and with a 5 game lead over the Nets, they don’t have too much to worry about in regards to missing out on the playoffs. The Kings are a young, fast, opportunistic team that are just starting to gel. Also, the Celtics could be without key depth in Marcus Smart and Jaylon Brown.
Orlando Magic -7.5
The Magic are fighting for a playoff spot (currently 9th) playing against a tanking team vying for Zion Williamson. They have the athleticism to blow the Cavaliers out of the water. Don’t be scared of laying the points on a 9th seed.
