Top 3 NBA Betting Picks for Friday, April 22 (2022)

There are three NBA games tonight. Last night was exciting, and viewers hope that tonight’s games are the same. The Grizzlies came back from being down 26. They won 105-95 to go up 2-1 in the series. The Warrior’s new death lineup has carried them through the series against the Nuggets.

Hopefully, the same excitement will be there tonight. Let us look into the matchups and see where the best betting value is.

Miami Heat Moneyline -120 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The Miami Heat have been my pick all season. They have the talent and the depth to go back to the finals as they did during the bubble season. Erik Spoelstra did a great job managing his team’s minutes while still winning all season. Atlanta is at home this game, which helps them out. But without Clint Capela, they will struggle inside to stop the Heat and get rebounds. That means Miami is the play tonight. 

DeMar DeRozan Under 29.5 points -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook

DeMar DeRozan can score. That is something we saw last game when the Bulls won, and he had 41 points. The reality is DeRozan averaged 27 points per game. The NBA is a long season, and the averages will be accurate this late in the season. DeRozan can be a streaky shooter, which showed in the first game of the series when he shot 6-25. This bet is a great value play with how he has been playing all season. 

Phoenix Suns Moneyline -125 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The big headline is that Devin Booker is out for this game. I think that adds more value to the Phoenix Suns winning this game. The Suns have been winning without their star players all season long. That does not stop now. They have plenty of talent and depth in their lineup to beat the Pelicans. Let us not forget that the Suns went 3-1 against the Pelicans during the regular season.
