Best Bets: BasketballNews' picks and fantasy advice for 4/26/22

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

Memphis Grizzlies (-6) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

This series has been so fun to watch come together, and it now shifts back to Memphis tied up heading into Game 5. Both the Grizzlies and Timberwolves have certain advantages over each other, but they are also very similar in their DNA as well. Not only can they explode on the offensive end, but the defense can be surprisingly good at points as well. On Tuesday night, this feels like the perfect opportunity for Ja Morant to remind everyone just how special of a player he truly is.

After struggling in his last outing, we’re forecasting Morant and his backcourt partner Desmond Bane to light up the scoreboard. Projecting this series to end in seven, the home team gets the nod here to win and cover the spread.

Pick: Grizzlies -6

Player Props: Ja Morant over 26.5 points, Anthony Edwards over 23.5 points, Desmond Bane over 3.5 threes, Karl-Anthony Towns over 1.5 threes

Phoenix Suns (-6.5) vs. New Orleans Pelicans

What a weird turn this series has taken since Devin Booker exited due to a strained left hamstring in Game 2. Without Booker, the Suns are struggling to find any sort of offensive consistency. Meanwhile, the Pelicans have all the momentum on their side behind a masterclass playoff debut from Brandon Ingram. However, in Game 5, we’re rolling with the home team to win outright and cover the 6.5-point spread.

Chris Paul is due for a solid outing, especially after he was put in clamps by underrated rookie Jose Alvarado in Game 4. Behind a big bounce-back performance from Paul, plus some of the Suns’ shooters finally hitting three-pointers, lock in the Suns -6.5 with confidence.

Pick: Suns -6.5

Player Props: Brandon Ingram over 26.5 points, Deandre Ayton over 21.5 points, Chris Paul over 12.5 assists, Jonas Valanciunas over 12.5 rebounds
