Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks against the spread for 4/7/22

Every day, BasketballNews.com gives you NBA betting analysis before tip-off. Make sure you subscribe to our daily podcast, “Nothing But Bets” on Apple PodcastsSpotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.

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

Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers (-2)

This is going to be a fun one in Toronto, folks. People continue to sleep on how good the Raptors truly are, especially noticing the late spread flip in favor Philadelphia. In the last 12 hours, the line has moved from Raptors -2 to Sixers -2. With plus money now on the table, hammer the home team here. Pascal Siakam is playing at an All-NBA level, plus Fred VanVleet and Scottie Barnes continue to step when called upon. Toronto pulls off another impressive victory in our forecast.

Pick: Raptors +2

Minnesota Timberwolves (-8) vs. San Antonio Spurs

In terms of stylistic matchups, Minnesota versus San Antonio is always entertaining. The Timberwolves want to run-and-gun with a blistering pace, which the Spurs can keep up with. San Antonio can slow it down as well, playing through their point guard ace in Dejounte Murray. As I mentioned this morning on SportsGrid, this feels like a game where Minnesota comes out and makes a statement.

Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards will be dynamite against the Spurs’ defense. Hammer an emphatic victory for the Timberwolves by double-digits.

Pick: Timberwolves -8

Denver Nuggets (-4.5) vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Who’s ready for another masterpiece performance from Nikola Jokic tonight? The MVP is ready to capture the crown once more, and this feels like thew perfect time to make some jaws drop in Denver. Don’t be surprised if Jokic puts up a 30-plus-point triple-double against the Grizzlies, who are already locked into the Western Conference’s No. 2 playoff seed. As Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo continue to put up dominant numbers each game, Jokic needs to keep pace in the razor-thin MVP race. Lock-in the Nuggets to pull off the victory as they continue to build rhythm for a potentially deep playoff run.

Pick: Nuggets -4.5
