NBA Playoff Picks

With the NBA playoffs upon us, we can expect every game from here on out to be hotly contested. In the Western Conference, the road clearly goes through Phoenix, while in the Eastern Conference, the top five teams were separated by just five games during the regular season. That could make every playoff game tough to call if you don’t have the right analytics. That’s why we wanted to share some key stats to know about heading into the playoffs to help you understand what teams excel in what situations. Remember you can always get our full slate of NBA picks against the spread with a BetQL subscription, or you can follow along with our expert picks to see who our sharps are wagering on night in and night out.

Best Against the Spread

Below are the best NBA picks against the spread for the 2022 season. We have done our research on the playoff teams this season and how they have performed against the spread. Picking moneyline winners during the playoffs isn't too difficult but the real bettors make their money against the spread. Take our advice and figure out which teams are the easiest against the spread picks for this playoff season.

Memphis Grizzlies

If we’re talking straight-up, the Grizzlies were a distant second place in the Western Conference, finishing eight games behind the Suns. But there was nobody better against the spread during the regular season. Ja Morant and company were the second-highest scoring team in the NBA, which no doubt played a role in the Grizzlies beating the spread 64.2% of the time, going 52-19-1.

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavs finished second in the Southwest Division behind Memphis and were also excellent against the spread during the 2021-22 campaign. Dallas had 47 wins against the spread, covering 58.8% of the time. Ironically, while Memphis is one of the best scoring teams in the league, the Mavericks were just 24th in the NBA in scoring. There is also some uncertainty regarding Luka Doncic’s strained calf, although if oddsmakers overreact to that injury, it could make Dallas even better against the spread in the playoffs.

Toronto Raptors

The Raptors finished fifth in the Eastern Conference this season, putting them a few games behind the four heavyweights most expect to duke it out during the playoffs. However, Toronto was the third-best team in the NBA and top in the Eastern Conference against the spread. Keep in mind the Raptors were 8-2 down the stretch, helping them go 46-35-1 against the spread, covering 56.8% of the time.

Best Bet as the Favorite Against the Spread

Chicago Bulls

We know the Bulls are one of the best teams against the spread when playing at home, but they were also the best team in the NBA this season when favored. Of course, as the no. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference, they were rarely favored against the teams finishing ahead of them in the standings. But when Chicago was expected to win, the Bulls were able to take care of business, covering 31 times in 48 games, which amounts to 66% of the time, considerably better than any of their Eastern Conference rivals.

Memphis Grizzlies

No team was better against the spread this season than Memphis, covering 64.2% of the time. The Grizzlies were almost as reliable when they were the favorite, going 31-18 and covering 63% of the time. As the no. 2 seed in the Western Conference, Memphis figures to be favored in most of its playoff games until potentially playing the Suns in the Western Conference Finals, so this will be an important trend to watch when the playoffs get underway.

Dallas Mavericks

While they were only good enough to get the no. 4 seed in the Western Conference, opponents don’t want to see the Mavericks when they’re favored in the playoffs. Dallas was favored 49 times this season, covering 29 times at a clip of 61.7%. The only question is whether the injury status of Luka Doncic will keep the Mavs from being favored in the playoffs or only result in them being favored by fewer points, making it a little easier for Dallas to cover.

Best as the Underdog Against the Spread

Miami Heat

Most teams in the playoffs don’t spend a ton of time being underdogs. Surprisingly, the no. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference was the best in the NBA at being in an underdog role. They ended up being underdogs in 23 games this season, beating the spread 17 times, giving them a rate of 73% as underdogs. Of course, it’s unclear how often the Heat will be underdogs in the playoffs, but if that ends up happening, Miami could be dangerous.

Phoenix Suns

Likewise, the top seed in the Western Conference was also the best team in the conference when oddsmakers labeled them as underdogs. Needless to say, it was a rare occurrence that the 64-18 Suns were an underdog. But they were 9-4 against the spread on those rare occasions, far better than the teams that will try to unseat them as Western Conference champs.
