The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Sunday, April 2nd, with 26 teams in action. Take a look at three strong bets for tonight’s games, featuring the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, and Phoenix Suns.
NBA Best Bet #1: Los Angeles Lakers -11.5 (-110)
The 39-38 Los Angeles Lakers have won back-to-back games. They are also over .500 for the first time this season. While Los Angeles dropped their most recent outing against the 19-59 Houston Rockets, they were without co-stars Anthony Davis and LeBron James. With both players expected to play, Los Angeles should win their third consecutive game. Look for them to win by at least 12 points.
NBA Best Bet #2: Golden State Warriors ML (+118)
The 41-37 Golden State Warriors have not been very good on the road this season. They will also face a 51-26 Denver Nuggets team that has been one of the best home teams this season. The Nuggets, however, are expected to be without star center Nikola Jokic. Denver has dropped back-to-back games without Jokic in the lineup. Look for them to lose their third consecutive game as the Warriors win this contest outright.
NBA Best Bet #3: Phoenix Suns -5.5 (-110)
The 42-35 Phoenix Suns have won all five games in which Kevin Durant has suited up for them. Furthermore, four of those five wins have come by at least seven points. They will face a 38-40 Oklahoma City Thunder team which they have already beaten by at least nine points twice this season, without Durant in the lineup. Look for the Suns to continue their strong play as they win their fifth consecutive game by at least six points.
