On Friday, there are a handful of games on the basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NBA picks for Friday!

NBA Matchup: Detroit Pistons @ Atlanta Hawks
Date: Friday, April 6th, 7:30 ET
Location: Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA
NBA Betting Odds: Atlanta -9
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

Should the Hawks really be laying this type of wood, even at home against the Pistons? Look, we know that Detroit isn’t all that great, and it is hard to back a team that is just 6-21 this year away from Motown. That being said, the Pistons have won five out of six and are at least thinking about getting back into the discussion for the playoffs. Josh Smith and Greg Monroe should provide a great battle, but aside from that, we really don’t see how the Hawks are just that much better than these Pistons. This just isn’t a good matchup as we see it for Atlanta, and though we do think that the hosts will get the job done and win, doing so by double digits just isn’t all that likely in our eyes.

NBA Pick: Detroit +9

NBA Matchup: Houston Rockets @ Los Angeles Lakers
Date: Friday, April 6th, 10:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Los Angeles -6
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV

The Lakers have a lot to prove in this one. They aren’t playing all that well right now, and the heat is turning up on Head Coach Mike Brown and his team. Andrew Bynum is just coming back from his ankle injury/potential de facto suspension, and he now looks to be fired up to contribute as well. Now, a Houston team that won in this series just a week and change ago is coming to town. The Lakers are a different team here at home, and though they haven’t been covering spreads, they are finding ways to win games. We think that this is a bad spot for the Rockets to be in, knowing that they really could just get blown away with their lack of healthy guards at the moment.

NBA Pick: Los Angeles -6
