The Warriors smashed Houston as The Wolf’s value bet on Sunday and I’ve shifted my attention to two form teams preparing for playoffs for Monday’s best.

Here are The Wolf’s NBA tips for Monday.

Best Bet

It’s a huge line for the Suns when they face the Thunder currently set at 14.5 but The Wolf is happy to take it on.

Phoenix are playing some great basketball to close out the season with the second-best record in the NBA, while the Thunder have closed up shop winning just one of their last 17 games. From those 16 losses, their average losing margin is 23.2 points with nine being by 15 points or more.

On Sunday OKC lost to Indiana by 57 points and now have to back it up against a much better Phoenix outfit. Last time they met on April 2 the Suns won by 37 points, and they enter this winning nine of their last 12 games.

Don’t expect a team led by Chris Paul to stuff around against his old team who are now playing no-names – expect a 20+ point win.

Suns (-14.5)

Value Bet

The Knicks are another team that don’t want to flirt with form – they’ve won 10 of their last 11 with their loss by 8 points to a very good Phoenix team.

Seven of New York’s last eight wins have been by double digits entering this clash with the Rockets, who the Warriors smashed by 20+ on Sunday as tipped by The Wolf.

Last time they played was on February 13 with the Knicks winning by 22 points, and although Houston just beat the Bucks a few days ago they lost Giannis one minute into the game.

The Rockets have won two of their last 13 games, with seven of those 11 losses by 11+ resulting in an average losing margin of 15.6 points.

Coach Thibs is relentless – expect big minutes from their starters with the New York looking to lock away a home series in the first round of playoffs.

Knicks 11+
