NBA Picks Friday - 5th April
Our picks for Friday's NBA action
We went 2-1 yesterday as we've continued to make a profit every day this week so far. We've only got three games today, and they're hard to call, so it's a single only for me.
Current Record - 34-27-1 (win/lose/push) +3.94u
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.
Whilst we're here and talking about hoops, can we remind you that Oddschecker is the place for great March Madness content. Find our great articles here.
Backing against the Bucks is never usually a good idea but it seems likely that Joel Embiid will be returning for the Sixers today. Philly is a team that looks totally different with the tall centre on the floor, and he's been having a very strong season and very much in the running to finish third behind Giannis and James Harden in the MVP race.
You'd think that with a returning Embiid that Philly would want to stamp down some authority ahead of the playoffs, especially when it seems very possible that these two meet at some stage. I'm taking the Sixers to cover and if I were feeling a little more bold I'd consider the money line.
