Picks made by Bobby Burack and Gary Sheffield Jr.

Before the NBA play-in tournament tips off tomorrow and the playoffs begin on Saturday, place your bets at the FanDuel Sportsbooks via OutKick.

Here are the five best bets to make. In other words, here’s how you will make money:

Lakers Over Warriors by 11-15 at +600

Credit to Steph Curry, but this Warriors team doesn’t have enough weapons to compete with an urgent Lakers team. Even though LeBron has never, ever gotten back to 100% — another lie — he’s not letting this team fall to a one-game elimination round in the play-in.

Bet the Lakers, by a lot. 11-15 is juicy. – Bobby Burack

Bucks to Win East at +350

The East is a three-team race, so I’m taking the best value. The Nets’ (+105) glamorous new trio has played fewer than 10 games together. That’s not enough. A switch cannot just be flipped. The Clippers tried that last year and exited in the second round.

I’ve never believed in the 76ers (+260). I’ll bet on Giannis over Embiid. – Bobby Burack

Knicks to Beat Hawks 4-2, +440

I’ll go Knicks 4-2. Thibs will make Trae Young a volume scorer and shut down the supporting cast. – Gary Sheffield Jr.

Suns +2400 to Win Title

Suns will likely run into the Lakers, who have chemistry issues because of injury. Take those +2400 odds to the house! – Gary Sheffield Jr.
