Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks against the spread for 4/3/22

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

Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (-13.5)

It’s been awesome to watch No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green turn the corner after the All-Star break. Green is carrying the Rockets’ offense right now, showcasing the same kind of late-season jump we saw from Anthony Edwards last season in Minnesota. This feels like too many points for the Timberwolves on the road in Houston. If Green gets going early and some other young Rockets role players step up, this game will be much closer than expected. Hammer the underdog here.

Pick: Rockets +13.5

Toronto Raptors (-5.5) vs. Miami Heat

I’ve been on the Raptors' bandwagon since the All-Star break as they continue demolishing teams with relative ease. Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet have been excellent, and rookie wing Scottie Barnes looks the part of a future star, as well. However, in this matchup in Toronto, we’re favoring the underdog Heat to cover. Miami is always a feisty team, especially when placed with plus-money odds. Expect this one to be within one possession throughout, ultimately resulting in Heat +5.5 as Sunday’s lock.

Pick: Heat +5.5

Los Angeles Clippers (-2) vs. New Orleans Pelicans

It’s great to have Paul George back fully healthy for the Clippers. How quickly we all forgot just how special a two-way talent George truly is. With George back in the fold, Los Angeles looks poised to be a sleeper team within the Western Conference playoff hierarchy. Sunday feels like the ideal opportunity for George and the Clippers to make a statement against a resurgent Pelicans squad. Bet big on George’s heroics to carry the Clippers across the finish line with a cover.

Pick: Clippers -2
