NBA Picks Tuesday - 2 April
Our picks for Tuesday's NBA action
Sorry for the break over the last few days. The NBA has become a lot harder to make picks for given that it's so close to the end of the regular season. We have a decent slate today, but there's still only one game that leaps out of me.
Current Record - 29-26-1 (win/lose/push) +0.39u
Sam's NBA picks will regularly be giving you picks for the day's hoop action. I recommend backing these individually but you're welcome to parlay them too. Each pick is staked at one unit.
Trail Blazers @ Timberwolves
Damian Lillard struggled on Sunday, when he only managed a poor 8-of-25 shots. It wasn't just him who struggled with Portland shooting at just 37%. He rarely plays badly consecutively, so I expect him and the team to bounce back and comfortably win their first of four games this week.
The devastating loss of Jusuf Nurkić to that gruesome injury has been hard for the team but Portland are still a great team, who are 8-2 in their last 10. Minnesota meanwhile are 3-7. Portland are 5th in the league ATS when they are a road favourite and I'd expect them to cover easily today.
Trail Blazers -3.5
