We continued the good form with our NBA betting tips on Saturday and are back to bring you some more for the big slate this Tuesday! Check them out below and good luck if following!
NBA Betting Tips: Saturday, 24th of April
Phoenix Suns at New York Knicks
Madison Square Garden, 9:30am AEST
Phoenix Suns come into this off back-to-back losses against the Nets and the Celtics, which is the first time they’ve lost two in a row since January. This east coast trip was always going to be extremely difficult and to be an even 2-2 so far would probably be a breakeven.
New York Knicks will be looking to make it 10 straight wins when they host the Suns on Tuesday. It’s been a great resurgence from the Knicks this season and it’ll be refreshing to see them in action come playoff time. As it stands, they’re the fourth seed in the East.
This will be the first meeting between these teams this season and it should be an interesting one. The Knicks are certainly in the better form of the two if you strictly take win/loss results into account, but the Suns will be the hungrier team in this contest after a couple of disappointing losses, and we expect that to the difference here.
Devin Booker is having another great season but has just been off his game a little bit of late. He bounced back to form on Monday against the Nets however, pouring in 36 points on an efficient clip. Expect that same type of rhythm just a day later when he takes on the Knicks in what’s an important game for the Suns.
Prop: Booker 25+ Points ($1.91)
Memphis Grizzlies at Denver Nuggets
Pepsi Center, 11am AEST
Memphis Grizzlies are coming off back-to-back road wins against the Trail Blazers to take their current road trip record to an impressive 4-2. It’s been a fruitful couple of months now for the Grizzlies who look set to finish in a play-in spot in the West at the bare minimum.
Denver Nuggets went on a four-game winning run after Jamal Murray went down with a devastating ACL injury, but they came back down to earth a couple of days ago against the Warriors when they had no answer for Steph Curry. The Nuggets are now in fourth spot in the West at 39-21.
These teams have met twice this season and both games have been absolute thrillers that have gone down to the wire; the Nuggets won the first meeting by one point and the second meeting by two points in overtime. We’re expecting another close game here with both teams having equal chances of winning, which makes the Grizzlies the value pick at $2.60.

Dallas Mavericks at Sacramento Kings
Golden 1 Center, 12pm AEST
Dallas Mavericks finished off their long home stand in style with three consecutive wins, two of which came against the defending champion Lakers, albeit an undermanned version. It’s been a much-needed return to winning form for the Mavs as they look to push for a top six finish to avoid the play-in tournament.
Sacramento Kings have had yet another tough season that will finish without a playoff berth. Injuries and inconsistency has plagued them since the opening game of their campaign and they’ve just never been able to hit their straps as a result.
The Mavericks have quite a few GTD’s for this Tuesday afternoon clash, but even if they do have a few key players missing they should still be far too strong for this Kings side missing their only true star in De’Aaron Fox. Take the Mavs to cover the spread in the final game of the slate.
With Fox sidelined, there are plenty more shots on offer for the rest of the Kings starters, and someone who’s getting a few of them is Buddy Hield. The three-point sniper has had 24+ points in three of his past five games, including each of his last two and is good value to keep his run going in what will be a high-scoring affair.
Prop: Hield 20+ Points ($2)
Dallas Mavericks -5.5
