Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks and fantasy advice for 4/21/22

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 the night portion of Thursday's postseason slate.

Utah Jazz (-7.5) vs. Dallas Mavericks

The pessimism surrounding Luka Doncic’s immediate playing time is obvious from Dallas. Reading the tea leaves, Doncic will probably be out for Game 3 due to a calf strain suffered in the Mavericks’ regular season finale. Jalen Brunson has put on a show in Doncic’s place, but this series flipping back to the raucous environment in Salt Lake City could change things up.

Donovan Mitchell is poised for a big breakout performance, plus Rudy Gobert’s defensive dominance is always a looming factor. In the end, hammer the Jazz to cover -7.5 over Dallas as a Best Bet.

Pick: Jazz -7.5

Player Props: Donovan Mitchell over 29.5 points, Jalen Brunson over 24.5 points, Rudy Gobert over 15.5 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie over 6.5 assists

Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors (-2.5)

Similar to the Suns series last season, the Nuggets are simply too outmatched here. Golden State’s offense has exploded behind a new modern-ady death lineup: Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green. With an absurd Offensive Rating above 200 right now, Denver doesn’t stand a chance against the Warriors

And with Devin Booker’s hamstring now playing a major factor in the Western Conference playoff storylines, Golden State might have a clearer Finals path. Behind a big game from Curry, hammer the Warriors to take the commanding 3-0 series lead.

Pick: Warriors -2.5

Player Props: Nikola Jokic over 29.5 points, Jordan Poole over 22.5 points, Aaron Gordon over 5.5 rebounds, Stephen Curry over 3.5 threes
