Knicks vs 76ers Quick Bet to Make

Bojan Bogdanovic is our guy tonight. We are going with him getting at least 11 points. Jalen Brunson got double-teamed in the first game, and we believe that the 76ers will do the exact same tonight as well. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 13 points in the first round, and we believe that he will score at least 11 points tonight.

That being said, Bogdanovic getting at least 11 points is a value bet.

Value bet/ the best odds: Bojan Bogdanovic over 10.5 points @+106 @FanDuel

Denver Nuggets vs Los Angeles Lakers Best Bet

10PM EST
Denver, CO
Ball Arena

For April 22, 2024, we will look at the clash between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers in Denver. The Nuggets won the first game 114-103. Expect a high-intensity game. The LA Lakers need this win to come back and tie the series.

Current Form

The Denver Nuggets have won four of their last five games. They are considered to be one of the biggest favorites to win the title this year. In the first game, the Nuggets won 114-103 easily against the Lakers. Nikola Jokić, former MVP, was yet again their best player on the court. He scored 32 points with 12 rebounds and 7 assists. Their team chemistry is also great. Jamal Murray was also great in the first game. They just need some better bench production, and if they get some points from the bench, we believe that they will win this series easily.

The Los Angeles Lakers have won three of their last five games. They ended up being the 8th seed in the regular season. Being the 8th seed, the Lakers had to fight throughout the play-in tournament to get into the playoffs. They played against the Pelicans in the play-in tournament and won 110-106. Zion Williamson got hurt late in the fourth quarter and could not finish the game. We believe that if he had stayed in the game, the Pelicans would have won that game against the Lakers.

Nuggets vs Lakers Best Bet to Make

The Nuggets are one of the best, if not the best, teams in the league right now. In the first game, the Nuggets were overall a better team, and we expect a similar performance from them tonight as well.

That being said, the Nuggets winning by at least 8 points is a value bet.

Value bet/ the best odds: Denver Nuggets -7.5 @1.91 @bet365
