Top 2022 NBA Week 25 Betting Picks

The NCAA Men’s College Basketball National Championship happens on Monday night, which is one of the reasons the Association hasn’t scheduled any games on April 5. The action picks up in the final week on Tuesday with a massive battle between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are playing for the Eastern Conference’s 1-seed while Chicago hopes to stay out of the play-in tournament.

NBA Betting Picks of the Week (April 4th to 10th)

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls

  • When: Tuesday, April 5th, 2022. 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks) // 670 The Score (Bulls)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

Both these teams are desperate for a victory. It may sound strange, but it’s true. The Bucks head into the final week on a 2-game losing streak. Milwaukee fell 153-119 to the Clippers and lost 118-112 to Dallas. The Bucks are 2.5 games behind Miami for the top spot. Chicago is tied with the Raptors for the 6-seed and just 2.5 games ahead of the Cavaliers for the 8-seed. The Bulls don’t want to have to play their way into the playoffs. They also don’t want to have to play the 3-seed in a road series. Big game on Tuesday that should go the Bucks. Milwaukee has Chicago’s number and Giannis and his crew won’t lose 3 straight.

NBA Betting Pick: Bucks

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Clippers

  • When: Wednesday, April 6th, 2022. 10:00 pm ET
  • Where: Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, CA
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: Phoenix Metro 98.7 FM (Suns) // KLAC 570 AM (Clippers)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Suns will rest some players. But there’s rest and then there’s rest. Phoenix should grab the 1- seed, but Monty Williams doesn’t want his team out of shape the next time they hit the court. He also doesn’t want his squad to relax too much. The Suns have lost 2 straight, games to Memphis and, amazingly, Oklahoma City. So expect Williams to push his players some in this to keep their mind on business. Phoenix wins and covers.

NBA Betting Pick: Suns

Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks

  • When: Thursday, April 7th, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • 0
  • Where: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee, WI
  • TV: TNT
  • Radio: 98.5 FM The Sports Hub (Celtics) // SportsRadio 1250 WSSP AM (Bucks)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

If the playoffs ended on April 3, the Celtics would start the postseason the 2-seed. Boston is a half a game ahead of Milwaukee and 2 games behind the Heat for the top spot. Milwaukee won the last head-to-head, but the game happened on Christmas Day. Since we landed in 2022, Boston has rolled. The Cs take this.

NBA Betting Pick: Celtics

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets

  • When: Friday, April 8th, 2022. 7:30 pm ET
  • Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: Newsradio WTAM 1100 (Cavaliers) // WFAN 101.9 FM (Nets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Nets have locked down a play-in spot. But Brooklyn could finish as the 10-seed, which means in a 3-game play-in tournament they’d get a single game in their arena. That’s not what Brooklyn wants. Cleveland wants to keep the 7-seed and have a shot at the 6-seed. Cleveland beat Brooklyn 114-107 in the last head-to-head. Kyrie didn’t play in that game. Brooklyn is 1-5 ATS in their last 6. The Cavaliers are the play to cover.

NBA Betting Pick: Cavaliers

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Memphis Grizzlies

  • When: Saturday, April 9th, 2022. 6:00 pm ET
  • Where: FedExForum, Memphis, TN
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: ESPN Radio New Orleans 100.3 FM (Pelicans) // WMFS-FM 92.9 (Grizzlies)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Bulls have fallen from the 2-seed to the 5-seed. Chicago must win in the next two weeks or they could end up having to battle in the play-in tournament. The Bulls face a tough squad on Saturday. In the last head-to-head, Jimmy Butler and his teammates rocked Chicago in a 112-99 victory. The Bulls can turn the tables. But they won’t. Miami wins straight up and against the spread.

NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets

  • When: Sunday, April 10th, 2022. 6:00 pm ET
  • Where: FedExForum, Memphis, TN
  • TV: NBA TV
  • Radio: 710 ESPNLA (Lakers) // Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM (Nuggets)
  • Live Stream: NBA League Pass
  • NBA Betting Odds: TBA

The Lakers are a couple of games behind the San Antonio Spurs for the 10-seed. Don’t expect Los Angeles to do enough to make it to the play-in tournament. LAL isn’t a good basketball team. LeBron looks tired. He’s not likely to play in this game. Nikola Jokic might if the Nuggets believe they can leapfrog Dallas for the 4-seed. Denver beat the Lakers 129-118 on April 3. There’s a chance the Nuggets win this by close to 20. Nuggets ATS is the play.

NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets
