Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks and fantasy advice for 3/26/22

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. This season, “Nothing But Bets” is up thousands of dollars on PrizePicks.

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

Cleveland Cavaliers (-2) vs. Chicago Bulls

This matchup has turned into one with massive implications within the division. The Bulls have really seen the wind sink from their sails over the last month-plus, which is the exact opposite of what they want before the postseason. Meanwhile, Cleveland continues to stay afloat behind their dynamic duo of Darius Garland and Evan Mobley. At home, we love the Cavaliers in this spot. Garland should pile up the stats, plus Mobley will be able to deter shots consistently around the rim.

Pick: Cavaliers -2

PrizePicks Power Play: DeMar DeRozan over 25.5 points, Evan Mobley over 15.5 points, Nikola Vucevic over 10 rebounds, Darius Garland over 9.5 assists

Brooklyn Nets (-4) vs. Miami Heat

Finally, Kyrie Irving is set to become a full-time player after New York City changed its rules around unvaccinated players. Now, Brooklyn is set to become a major threat within the Eastern Conference. Against the slumping Heat, Irving and Kevin Durant are primed for monster performances. Miami isn’t in a rhythm right now, and facing Brooklyn’s superstar duo is not the ideal recipe to bounce back. Hammer the Nets in this spot as 4-point favorites in South Beach.

Pick: Nets -4

PrizePicks Power Play (No Heat props currently available): Kyrie Irving over 27.5 points, Kevin Durant over 27.5 points

Denver Nuggets (-15.5) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

As “Nothing But Bets” longtime listeners know by now, we love betting on the Thunder when the spread is massive. In this case, we're looking at a monster 15.5-point favorite line for the Nuggets in Denver. However, we’re going against that trend today for a few reasons. First off, Oklahoma City is full-on tanking with so many players out due to injury, including Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh Giddey. Another item of note: the Nuggets are going to play angry after their loss earlier this week against the Phoenix Suns. Expect one of those special performances from Nikola Jokic, which should lead to a blowout win for the Nuggets.

Pick: Nuggets -15.5

PrizePicks Power Play (No Thunder props currently available): Nikola Jokic over 23.5 points, Aaron Gordon over 6 rebounds
