Weather is warming up for most of the U.S. which means it’s time to get out the poles. It looks like we’ve already got the bait with Memphis giving just -2 points to Minnesota, Golden State -2 in Denver, and Dallas +7 at Utah even though there’s a chance Luka Doncic could return.
All of those lines seem too easy, so by that metric, the teams to target tonight would be the T’Wolves, Nuggets, and Utah – but maybe that’s what they want us to think?
Either way, let’s get after it with a trio of Game 3’s and series’ shifting locations:

🏀Top Player Props April 21st 🏀
LineStar has a new Player Prop tab that lets you search for the best individual props through apps such as DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Caesars, and PointsBet. Here are some of the best bets for tonight:
🏀Donovan Mitchell (Over 28.5 points) -I think he gets to at least 30 here unless the Jazz tries to get Rudy Gobert more involved in the offense. Mitchell averaged 33 ppg in the two playoff games in Dallas despite averaging just 14.5 there in two regular season games. He’s taken 59 shots so far and averaged 33 in two home games vs. the Mavs this season.
🏀Jordan Poole (Over 2.5 three pointers made) – He’s hit 10-17 from three the last two games and that’s with Golden State pulling out two double digit wins. It feels like Denver wins this game with the Warriors just -2 point trap favorites, so expect even more shots from beyond the arc.
🏀Andrew Wiggins Over 5.5 rebounds) – He’s running all around 35-year-old Jeff Green with an 8.5 rebound average in the first two games of the series and Jokic is wearing down against this small ball GSW attack.
🏀Rudy Gobert (Over 15.5 rebounds) – Just -104 even though he has 17 rebounds in three of his last four meetings with Dallas. Has 16+ in 4 of his last 6 overall at home
Tonight’s Key NBA Matchups
Grizzlies (-2) @ Timberwolves , O/U 236.5 7:30 ET
Memphis bounced back with a 28-point win in Game 2, and now has a chance to regain homecourt advantage back in the Twin Cities. This series has been largely dominated by officials so far, with Ja Morant shooting 20 free throws in Game 1, and the 1st quarter of Game 2 taking nearly an hour with a combined 33 free throws. Let’s see if the tight whistles continue back in Minnesota, as surely the league has heard the criticism.

When both the dog of a Timberwolves player and the brother of a Grizzlies player are saying there are too many fouls… there are too many fouls
Mavericks @ Jazz (-7), O/U 210.5 9:00 ET
LukaWatch will probably continue right until game time which stinks with a 9:00 PM ET tip off. Then again who is spending $9.6k on Doncic when he might be on a minutes restriction – but his return could also put a dent in Jalen Brunson’s production after he went over 8X in Game 2.
The Jazz know who is playing for them, and that’s Donovan Mitchell who has 45+ fp in the first two games of the series. Rudy Gobert is killing the boards (17+ in 3 of last 4 vs. Dallas) but he’s not scoring with just 6 fga total the first two tilts in Dallas.
Sports Illustrated
Three more NBA Game 3s tonight headline the sports slate, including the potential for Luka Dončić’s return.

Here’s how to watch all the action.

📺 Happy streaming:
Warriors (-2), O/U 223.5 10:00 ET
Golden State is up 2-0 as they’ve outscored Denver by 35 points in two games in the Bay Area. Something like 85% of the betting public is on the Warriors with the line not budging and sportsbooks don’t just give away games like this. Something to think about even with Steph Curry under $9k on DK for the first time all season ($8.9) coming off 49fp off the bench in Game 2.
