Detroit 117 @ Dallas 127 | 04/22 | 12:30 AM UTC

Detroit +10.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Mavs are in a funky place. The last time they played, they got whacked by the Kings at home on Sunday. I called that game on the NBA App, and I was surprised how many timeouts Dallas coach Rick Carlisle took in an attempt to motivate his team. The Mavs have had three days to bask in that embarrassing L. They win tonight, but this is way too many points. Take the dog.

Memphis 137 @ Denver 139 | 04/20 | 1:00 AM UTC

Memphis +7.5

WIN

ANALYSIS: Check out the month Memphis has had so far. The Grizzlies have wins at the Sixers by 16, at the Heat by 12, at the Hawks by 18, and then most recently on a back to back, they beat the Bucks in Milwaukee by 13. Are you not entertained? What more does Memphis have to do to start getting some respect? The Grizzlies may not have a full lineup tonight, but 7.5 points is way too many for Ja Morant and the crew. Give me the dog in this spot.

Memphis 128 @ Milwaukee 115 | 04/18 | 1:00 AM UTC

Memphis +8

WIN

ANALYSIS: Riding this Grizzlies train has been fun. Now I get this many points? I will surely take every single bit of those. Memphis dominated in a win over a Bulls team without Zach LaVine. The short trip to Milwaukee should not take too much out of their legs. The Bucks are certainly defending better, but stopping Ja Morant is easier said than done. Way, way, way too many points in this spot. Take the dog.

Golden St. 114 @ Boston 119 | 04/18 | 12:30 AM UTC

Boston -5

PUSH

ANALYSIS: Boston is playing its best basketball of the season, They scored a very impressive win over the Lakers, even though they had to put their starters back in the game in the fourth quarter. The two-headed monster of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum is just too much to contain. They need to get the ball out of Stephen Curry's hands, because right now he is in zombie mode. You cannot stop him. If they get the ball out of his hands, that can be the difference in the game. Lay the points with the Celtics at home.

Utah 115 @ L.A. Lakers 127 | 04/17 | 8:30 PM UTC

L.A. Lakers -1

WIN

ANALYSIS: The Jazz received good news with Donovan Mitchell's X-rays being negative, but they are going to have to adjust without their leading scorer. The Lakers did a great job of cutting down a near 30-point deficit and turning their matchup against the Celtics into a two-possession game. I love their identity now under Frank Vogel. The Lakers are physical and tough. Utah has to make some adjustments, and they are on the road.
