Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks against the spread for 4/2/22

Without further ado, let’s dive into our favorite NBA spread bets for Saturday's slate.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets (-2)

If you’re wanting to watch an NBA game with offensive fireworks galore, you've found the right matchup. Atlanta and Brooklyn should score points in bunches, particularly Trae Young, who has been carrying the Hawks on his back by putting up monster numbers. Meanwhile, Brooklyn’s dynamic duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could go off at a moments notice. In the end, we’re forecasting a big-time outing from Durant and Irving leading the Nets to victory. When you’re on the fence, almost always bet on the stars to pull through.

Pick: Nets -2

Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat (-2)

These two teams don’t like each other. Every time Chicago and Miami face off, the bad blood is palpable. On the court, these two match up very well thanks to all the All-Star wings involved. Jimmy Butler will have his hands full defensively against DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine. On the other end of the court, who will be able to stop Butler? An underrated aspect is the bigs down low. If Bam Adebayo dominates Nikola Vucevic, Chicago is in big trouble. This feels like the perfect opportunity for Miami to make a pre-postseason statement on the road.

Pick: Heat -2

Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz (-2)

Still without Stephen Curry, it’s hard to trust the Warriors, at least from a betting perspective. Utah is good enough where they'll make a tough opponent for Golden State without their best player. Donovan Mitchell should feast on Saturday night, and the constant defensive presence of Rudy Gobert will loom large. If the Jazz’s role players make their open shots early, there’s value on the spread here in favor of Utah. As a best-bet for Saturday’s slate, lock in the Jazz with confidence to cover the 2-point spread in San Francisco.

Pick: Jazz -2
