Best NBA Plays for Friday

Another packed slate of NBA bubble basketball today with six games for us to get stuck into while hopefully cashing some tickets along the way.

Playoff seedings are at stake and some teams could effectively end their season's today with an L.

At Dimers we've put together our best plays to get you through a crucial day of basketball!

Thunder @ Grizzlies
Grizzlies +4.5 (+100*)

Ja Morant and the Grizz are still searching for their first win since the restart and will need to get going soon to avoid falling out of the 8th seed before the play-in matches. The +100 on offer from PointsBet to cover the line is our play.

Kings @ Nets
Kings at the Moneyline (-226*)

Brooklyn gave up a whopping 149 to Boston on Wednesday after stunning the Bucks earlier in the week. Life in the Bubble is young, but we’ve seen teams with playoff spots already sewn up begin to think about preservation before playoffs. The Kings, on the other hand, are losing hope of being able to get the 9th seed to force a play-in series with the 8th seed, but that won’t stop them from playing hard. Ultimately, Sacramento just have more at stake right now, and that’s why this looks like a safe bet. Add it to your paylays.

 

 

Magic @ 76ers

Sixers at the Moneyline (-200*)

Even without Ben Simmons, who looks likely to be gone for a long time, the Sixers are good things here against an Orlando Magic who have hit a wall, dropping their last two. Joel Embiid tends to be a bit of a monster when Simmons is missing. Expect him to lead the way and make your bet a winning one.

Wizards @ Pelicans

Wizards +8 (+100*)

The two most disappointing teams since the NBA restart meet tonight with the luckless Wizards coming up against the talented Pelicans. The Pels have come under fire for wasting their potential so far in the bubble and even despite Washington’s trouble, we don’t expect New Orleans to blow this one out.

Celtics @ Raptors

Raptors ML (-149*)

Simply put, the Raptors are the better team here and should get the job done. Throw in Siakam to go over 21.5 points and you’ve got yourself a nice same game parlay.
