DraftKings NBA Playoffs

NBA Parlay Odds & Picks for Monday, April 25 (2022)

Both conferences will be in action tonight in the NBA, as the Eastern Conference could punch its first two tickets to the second round. For both the Nets and Raptors, tonight’s game is a must-win to stave off elimination well before either had planned, but especially Brooklyn.

In the West, things are all square in the Mavs/Jazz series, as the series returns to Dallas for Game 5. Let’s take a closer look at each and see where the value remains.

DraftKings NBA Playoffs

Leg #1. Nets ML | -105 at DK Sportsbook
One of the more surprising outcomes of the playoffs thus far has been the failure of the Brooklyn Nets to get even a single game against the Celtics. After losing by one in game 1, many expected a closely contested series which has since proven to be largely one-sided.

In Saturday’s 109-103 win for the Celtics, they once again kept the duo of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant in check, keeping the duo to just 32 points on the night. In one of the coldest stretches of shooting in his postseason career, Durant is well overdue for regression and I don’t see a scenario he doesn’t have himself at least one stellar performance; I expect to see that here.

Leg #2. Raptors +8 | -110 at DK Sportsbook
Despite being down 3-1 in the series, the Raptors have largely kept things close since returning home last week, dropping game 3 by 3 points in overtime prior to Saturday’s 110-102 win. Once Fred VanVleet left the lineup in game 4 with a hip flexor injury, the Raptors’ Pascal Siakam rose to the occasion scoring 34 points on a night they desperately needed him.

As for the 76ers #2, James Harden, his contributions have been nearly non-existent, averaging just 19.25 points per game while committing 3.25 turnovers per game. While I think the 76ers get this one done late at home with VanVleet out of the lineup, I think the Raptors led by one of the best coaches in the league (Nick Nurse) find a way to keep this one close.

Leg #3. Mavericks -3 | -110 at DK Sportsbook
The Mavericks were just 40 seconds away from returning to Dallas up 3-1 with a chance to close it out, before Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell likely saved the Jazz season. The loss did, however, come after the Mavs came back from an early 16-point Jazz lead, clawing back led by Luka Doncic’s 30 points and 10 rebounds in his return from injury.

With Doncic fully back integrated into the lineup tonight and the continued emergence of Jalen Brunson, who is averaging 29.8 points per game this series, I like for the Mavs to get back on track tonight at home.
