NBA Picks - 04/12/17

Last Updated: 4/13/2017 10:28 AM ET
Due to several teams deciding to rest players on the last day of the season, we have not posted picks for games which include large amounts of players/starters resting. We believe we would be doing a disservice to our customers by posting picks regarding rotations and players that are completely random and would require us to "guess" what the coach will do with their rotation. The games listed below include teams who will play their starters, and minute inputs have been adjusted.

If you are getting a different line than our projection, simply access the Play Analyzer, which allows you to see picks at current consensus lines or input your own against-the-spread and over/under lines. Also, to know who we project to be OUT of each game, check out our injuries information. And, Halftime Pick analysis is available (when games get to halftime) here. The Play Value ($) assumes a "normal" $50 play.
