76ers vs Heat Quick Bet to Make

Tyrese Maxey is our guy tonight. We are going with him getting at least 31 points + assists. He has gone over this line in 3 straight games against the Heat. When playing at home, Maxey covered this line 85% of the time. This is a big game for the 76ers, so expect him to play many minutes.

That being said, Maxey to have at least 31 points + assists is a value bet.

Value bet/ the best odds: Tyrese Maxey over 30.5 points + assists @-102 @FanDuel

Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks Best Bet

9:30PM EST
Chicago, IL
United Center

For April 17, 2024, we will look at the clash between the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks in Chicago. A win here would give them the playoff shot. A loss here, would be a season-ending loss. Expect a high-intensity game. This will be the most important game of the season for both teams.

The Chicago Bulls have won 2 out of their last 5 games. In their last game, the Bulls lost against the Knicks after overtime. Zach LaVine was out for the most part of the season, and that hurt them a lot. He is their best player, and without him, their defense got better, but they did not have any answers for the offense.

The Atlanta Hawks have lost 6 straight games. Luckily for them, the Nets were just too bad to take advantage. The Hawks lost the home court advantage because of that, and dropped to the 10th seed. Trae Young played the last three games of the season, after being out because of an injury. Even with him, the Hawks lost their last three games.

Missing tonight

Bulls vs Hawks Best Bet to Make

All being said, we believe that the Bulls are a better team at the moment. We believe that none of these teams will get into the playoffs. However, in this matchup, we believe that the Bulls have better team chemistry and that they will win in Chicago, in front of their own crowd.

That being said, the Bulls winning is a value bet.

Value bet/ the best odds: Chicago Bulls to win @1.65 @bet365
