The exciting NBA season continues on Sunday with another juicy seven-game slate. We’re coming off a successful Thursday where we were extremely unlucky not to go 5/5 due to the Suns and Jazz game going to overtime. Here, we bring you our best spread and player prop bets for Sunday and wish you the best of luck if following!
NBA Betting Tips: Sunday, 11th of April
Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers
Quicken Loans Arena, 9:30am AEST
Toronto Raptors have had a nightmare season and look destined to miss the playoffs despite being in the weaker Eastern Conference. Not having any games at their home in Toronto has been a huge disadvantage and it’s just something they haven’t been able to deal with.
Cleveland Cavaliers have had a tough season but there’s still been enough signs from their young stars to suggest it won’t be too long until they climb up the ladder. The Cavs are coming off back-to-back wins, both of which were by over 20 points.
The Cavs are clearly in the better form of these two clubs and deserve to be the favourites in our advantage. They won the earlier meeting against the Raptors this season and should have a further edge this time around on their home deck.

Sacramento Kings at Utah Jazz
Vivint Smart Home Arena, 11am AEST
Sacramento Kings have teased with a few handy win streaks this season but just haven’t been able to produce any sort of consistency. They come into this having lost five games on the spin and are just about out of the playoffs race with around 20 games to go.
Utah Jazz have been fantastic all season long including last time out against the Trail Blazers where they were very comfortable winners. It was an important win for the Jazz to create a little bit more separation from the rampaging Suns who are second in the standings.
The Kings are in horrible form at the moment and now face one of the toughest tests in the NBA at the moment. It’s virtually impossible to see them winning this game on current form as all signs lead towards a comfortable win for the home side.
Bojan Bogdanovic hasn’t had the best season shooting the ball by his standards, but he’s starting to get a lot more looks of late. He’s had double-figure shot attempts in each of his last six games and has scored 15+ points in five of them. Getting even money for him to do it again on Sunday looks like great value.
Prop: Bogdanovic O14.5 Points ($1.83)
Washington Wizards at Phoenix Suns
PHX Arena, 12pm AEST
Washington Wizards have had another tough campaign and won’t be featuring in the playoffs unless something drastic happens. Russell Westbrook has been a good addition and is averaging a triple-double once again, but he’s had little to no consistent help outside of Bradley Beal.
Phoenix Suns are having a dream season and will finally break their long playoffs drought. Chris Paul has been fantastic in his first season in the Valley, helping lead his side to the second seed in the West as it stands. The Suns were losers last time out against the Clippers, but that game came a day after an overtime thriller against the league-leading Jazz.
The Suns should be too good at home here, but we see the real value in the total points over market. These sides always seem to play in shootouts and the current line simply looks too low. The lowest total score from their past five meetings is 235 and we’re expecting something similar again here.
Mikal Bridges has had a solid breakout season but there’s still been some growing pains. He had a mare a few games back against the Jazz where he failed to score, but bounce back last time out with a big night against the Clippers. In what will be a high-scoring game, we expect Bridges to continue to build momentum with another solid night scoring the ball.
Prop: Bridges O12.5 Points ($1.80)
Total Points Over 227.5
