Here is what the data is telling us for today's NBA games โฌ


Bucks @ Pacers


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Indiana Pacers at the spread with PointsBet (-110)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 53.4% probability

Caris LeVert is on an absolute tear right now and with seedings still on the line for the Pacers, our model has them covering the spread against the Milwaukee Bucks.

To cash this bet, we only need the Pacers to stay within 8 points of the Bucks who are but locked into a first round matchup with the Nets already.

Spurs @ Knicks


BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ New York Knicks at the spread with DraftKings Sportsbook (-105)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 51.2% probability

The San Antonio Spurs have basically wrapped up their position in the play-in tournament with a likely 10th place finish in their future.

The Knicks on the other hand will be buoyed by the fact they've locked in their first post-season result since 2013. Which coupled with the fact that they're still fighting the Heat for the fifth place, means that we have them winning this one with ease and covering the spread.

Heads up, this Friday is Free to Bet Day with DraftKings Sportsbook! That's the holiday that celebrates the repeal of PASPA, the law that allowed states in the US to offer sports betting. DraftKings Sportsbook will be giving out a $5.14 free bet to anyone who claims (must be claimed and used on 5/14). This is open to new (AND EXISTING) customers. Click below to claim!

Nuggets @ Timberwolves

BET: ๐Ÿ”ฅ Minnesota Timberwolves at the spread with BetMGM (-110)

๐Ÿ“ˆ 51.9% probability

Last up, we have the in-form Wolves to keep it close against the Denver Nuggets. Anthony Edwards is making a late push for ROTY and if he can turn it on against the Murray-less Nuggets, we should be in for a tight one.

To best use this pick, you can't go wrong when signing up to BetMGM where new customers you can cash in even if your bet doesn't win!

Simply deposit $20 into your account, place your bet, and then wait for the money to come in, regardless of the result! It's free money.
