At this stage of the season, with playoff spots still up for grabs, every game on the schedule seems to take on a greater level of importance. With some spots clinched, there is still the business of the final seeding to attend to for the teams who will be playing beyond the end of the regular season. That is something that might well go down to the final day of the season, with every win and loss at this point having some sort of impact on the final standings. With all of that in mind, it stands to reason that there are a ton of big games on the NBA schedule this week, which will start on Tuesday after a Monday off. We have looked ahead and picked out the biggest games to watch and bet on the NBA Odds in the coming days.
Must Bet NBA Games From April 5th to 7th
Milwaukee Bucks at Chicago Bulls – Tuesday
With 4 games left to play in the regular season, it looks like the Bucks chances of winning the Eastern Conference are slipping away. They are 2 ½ games out of the top spot and really need to win out, while also hoping they get some help along the way. They have a tough start to the week coming, with a trip to Chicago to face the Bulls being their first order of business. One more win might well secure a top 6 spot for the Bulls, so it is definitely all to play for in this game.
Atlanta Hawks at Toronto Raptors – Tuesday
Both of these teams will be playing beyond the end of the regular season, but where they might land is another matter. The Atlanta Hawks are currently in the play-in tournament and probably need to win out to get into the top 6. They are taking a good run at it, as they come into this week having won 5 games in a row. The Toronto Raptors are sitting just above the play-in line and could breathe a whole lot easier with a win in this game.
Phoenix Suns at LA Clippers – Wednesday
What makes this one especially interesting is that we could potentially be looking at a playoff preview. The Suns have already clinched the Western Conference and look like a good bet to make another run at the NBA Finals. On the flipside, the LA Clippers already know that they will be part of the play-in tournament, so their goal here will be to get the win and maybe put a little bit pf doubt in the heads of the Suns, who have lost each of their last 2 games.
Memphis Grizzlies at Denver Nuggets – Thursday
Every team wants to head into the playoffs on a good run of form, which is exactly what the Memphis Grizzlies are lining up to do. They come into this week on a 7-game winning streak and a run that has seen them win 9 of their last 10 games. The Nuggets are close to clinching a top 6 spot in the Western Conference and might well be able to do so with a win on Thursday night. These are two teams poised to make some noise in the postseason.
