#1 Companion for DraftKings, FanDuel and Yahoo!


It’s the wild wild West in this last week of the regular season. OKC played two guys 40+ minutes even though the ink was barely dried on their 10-day contracts and Davion Mitchell of the Kings is supposed to get a minutes restriction to wind down the year…only to log 39:57 vs. the Pelicans.
Expect more of the same shenanigans tonight and through Sunday’s regular season finale. Let’s see how it looks:

🏀Top Player Props April 6th 🏀
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:
🏀Reggie Jackson (Over 18.5 points) -The Suns are on the back to back and you’d think they ease up a bit tonight. That bodes well for Jackson who has taken 24, 23, and 19 shots in the last three.
🏀Nicolas Batum (Over 3.5 rebounds) – He’s grabbed at least 4 rebounds in 5 of the last 8, and plays Phoenix who has given up 10+ rebounds to four straight PFs.
🏀Reggie Bullock (Over 9.5 points) – He’s got at least 16 points in 3 of the last 5, and 8+ in 5 straight. Detroit is banged up and allowing 15 ppg to opposing PFs the past 20.
🏀Al Horford (Over 8.5 rebounds) – Probable (back) and averaging 11 rebounds/game over the last three. Has snagged 8 and 10 in two games vs. the Bulls this season.
Tonight’s Key NBA Matchups
Mavericks (-8.5) @ Pistons, O/U 220.5 7:00 ET
It’s “supposed” to be business as usual for Dallas tonight as they are trying to hold off Utah for the #4 seed which would give them home court in the first round playoff series. The Mavs are up 2 on the Jazz and just 1 GB from Golden State for the #3 spot, but Detroit actually comes into this one on a 3-game win streak.
Nets (-5) @ Knicks, O/U 229 7:30 ET
How does Brooklyn play this one on the back to back? The Nets are in the play-in tournament but you’d think they’d want to hold on to the #8 seed and still try to catch #7, which they are 1.5 back from. Brooklyn plays the Cavs -who they are chasing – on Friday. The Knicks will also try to avoid their 7th straight loss to the Nets.
Wizards @ Hawks (-10.5) , OU 234 8:00 ET
Atlanta goes on the back to back after having a 5-game win snapped in a 118-108 loss in Toronto last night. Four Hawks players logged at least 31 minutes, so do they go for this one or take it easy?
Celtics (-7.5) @ Bulls, O/U 221 8:00 ET
The big question for this one is who plays for both teams. Zach LaVine rested his knee in Chicago’s loss to Milwaukee last night, and it wouldn’t be a complete shock if DeMar DeRozan or Nikola Vucevic sat on the back to back now that the Bulls have avoided the play-in tournament. Boston has Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum on the injury report, and also has a critical matchup with the Bucks tomorrow night in Milwaukee as they are tied for the #2 seed.
Courtside Fracas
As it stands the 2, 3 and 4 seeds in the East all have identical records (BOS, MIL, PHI)

1 game separates 5 & 6 (TOR & CHI)

Seeding is totally up in the air 😅

Question: Who would you like to face LEAST in the Eastern Playoffs, in order?
Thunder @ Jazz (-17.5), OU 219.5 9:00 ET
Welcome to Jaylen Hoard chalk SZN (!) as he went for 24 points and 21 rebounds last night vs. Portland for 12X. Utah is also on 0 days rest and following an OT 121-115 win over Memphis. Bojan Bogdanovic and Donovan Mitchell both logged 40+ minutes in that contest.
Suns @ Clippers (-2.5), OU 226.5 10:00 ET
Line moving towards the Clippers way, opening with Suns as +3 point favorites. That would make you think Phoenix takes this one easy having clinched the #1 seed awhile ago and also playing on the back to back.
