Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks and fantasy advice for 4/19/22

Without further ado, let’s dive into our favorite NBA spread bets for the night portion of Tuesday's postseason slate.

Miami Heat (-7.5) vs. Atlanta Hawks

Miami matches up so well in this series against Atlanta. Trae Young will go off for the Hawks, but who else will help out to keep this a competitive series throughout? It’s tough to peg, which means the Hawks are in trouble. For Game 2, Miami holds serious advantages in multiple areas. Bam Adebayo should dominate down low on both ends of the court, plus Jimmy Butler’s presence will have a notable impact. 

Atlanta struggled mightily in Game 1, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t forecast it to happen again. Hammer with emphasis Heat -7.5 over the Hawks.

Pick: Heat -7.5

Player Props: Trae Young over 25.5 points, Bam Adebayo over 18.5 points, Jimmy Butler over 4.5 assists, Kevin Huerter over 2.5 threes

Memphis Grizzlies (-6.5) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota has the Grizzlies on the ropes early. After throwing an uppercut to Memphis that landed in Game 1, can the Timberwolves take a convincing 2-0 series lead back to Minneapolis? With the way Anthony Edwards is playing right now, seemingly any scenario is on the table for Tuesday night. However, we’re rolling with a big-time Grizzlies bounce-back opportunity. Ja Morant will come out with a vengeance scoring-wise, plus his team's perimeter shooting should go back to its law of averages.

This series will likely go the distance, at least six games, but we’re locking in the Grizzlies to win Game 2. Lock in Morant to win you back your coins.

Pick: Grizzlies -6.5

Player Props: Ja Morant over 29.5 points, Anthony Edwards over 24.5 points, Karl-Anthony Towns over 1.5 threes, Dillon Brooks over 1.5 threes
