2014 NBA Betting – Picks For Games On Friday, April 11

Posted by Craig Parsons on 4/10/2014 10:52:50 PM

Game 1: New York Knicks @ Toronto Raptors -Friday, April 11

The Knicks are on their last legs, knowing that they are more inclined to miss the playoffs than make them. However, if New York is going to get into the postseason, it will have to win this game on the road against a team that is trying for the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. There’s value for Toronto in winning this game. The Raptors, by getting the third seed, would avoid having to play the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs. The Raptors would instead play either Washington or Charlotte, two teams that would be much easier to handle than the Nets. Therefore, anyone who is inclined to pick the Knicks in this game based on a perceived sense of urgency is not really factoring the Raptors’ level of motivation into a betting play. Take Toronto at home. The Raptors are going to care about this game just as much as the Knicks will, and Toronto is a much bett er team than New York. That’s the smart way to read this game.

NBA Betting Pick: Toronto

Game 2:Phoenix Suns @ San Antonio Spurs -Friday, April 11

When the Suns face the Spurs, Phoenix will be playing for its playoff life. The Suns caught a bad break on Wednesday night when Memphis, a team hot on the Suns’ tail, defeated the Miami Heat. Phoenix was hoping the defending champions could have knocked the Grizzlies further back in the Western Conference standings. Because of that event, this game for the Suns is even more of a big deal. The importance of this game is substantial for Phoenix, because a loss would make it that much more vital for coach Jeff Hornacek’s team to win its remaining games without stumbling. There just isn’t much of a cushion when you’re taking on two other teams, Dallas and Memphis, in a race for only two spots. There aren’t enough positions to go around at the bottom of the West’s playoff ladder.

Phoenix needs this game, but San Antonio, playing at home and trying to make sure that it gets the top seed in the West,is the team that’s probably going to come out on top. Too many Spurs will likely get in on the act and help San Antonio to score a high number of points against the Suns’ defense.

NBA Betting Pick:San Antonio

Game 3: Indiana Pacers @ Miami Heat -Friday, April 11

For NBA fans, this will naturally be a very interesting game, but the reasons for drama on Friday are not what a lot of people would have expected a few months ago. The Pacers and the Heat will be playing for the top seed in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage in a possible Eastern Conference Finals series, but these teams are close in the standings only because they’ve both played terribly in recent weeks. The Pacers are tired, and the Heat are playing game after game without Dwyane Wade. All the starters on both sides should play in this game, but it will be hard to know what to expect. Miami, at home, probably deserves an edge, but only a small one.

NBA Betting Pick: Miami
