This Wednesday is shaping up to be a crucial day in the NBA playoffs.  Will the top-seeded Sixers and Jazz get series wins on their home floor?  Will the Knicks get put to bed in MSG by Trae Young, the NBA’s Darth Vader?  And will Luka Doncic bounce back from a brutal game 4 loss and make the Clippers look silly in Staples Center again?  The answers to these questions will all have a ripple effect on the rest of the playoffs.  So, let’s take a look at some NBA playoff bets, shall we?

Wizards (+7) At 76ers (-7)

It’s so hard to analyze this game without knowing if Joel Embiid will play or not.  If he doesn’t, I think the Wizards will win.  He only played 11 minutes in their game 4 loss after averaging 29 points through the first three games of the series on 67% shooting.  The Sixers need Embiid to win, it’s as simple as that.  If Ben Simmons were consistently productive on offense then I would have confidence in Philly, but he’s not.  Due to the uncertainty surrounding Embiid, I would stay away from betting this game. 

But given the very real possibility he doesn’t play, I like the Wizards spread and ML (+300) with my NBA playoff bets, due to the value.  There’s also sharp money coming in on the Sixers which has influenced the line in their favor, adding more value to a Wizards bet.  The Wizards have covered twice this series and are 41-30-1 ATS in the regular season.  This series has hit the over in 3/4 games, but I’m taking the under here (229.5) in anticipation that Embiid does not play.  Again, I would stay away from this game as a bettor but if you’re looking for value I think you’ll find it by assuming Embiid sits.

Hawks (+1.5) At Knicks (-1.5)

The Knicks have only covered once this series, and that cover came in their game 2 win at MSG.  Am I foolish to yet again be putting money on the Knicks spread with my NBA playoff bets?  Maybe, but I’m doing it anyways.  I’ve said it a million times, but they were the best ATS team in the league this season at home (22-13-1), while the Hawks are one of the worst ATS teams on the road (16-19-1).  94% of the money is on the Knicks right now, despite only 47% of the bets being on them.  When there is more money on the favorites, a bet on them hits 62% of the time and has a 21% ROI.  The numbers say New York is the better wager.

The Knicks have looked bad this series, particularly Julius Randle.  However I expect him to finally put it together in game 5 and lead the Knicks to a comfortable victory.  Randle averaged 37 points in his three games against the Hawks in the regular season, so I also love betting on him to score 30+/Knicks win (+800). 

That will give New York the chance to go back to Atlanta and lose there instead.  This series has hit the under in every single game, which is why I love taking the over in game 5 (208.5).  I’m expecting big offense from Randle and the Knicks and I think the 208.5 mark is reflective of the low-scoring series so far, making it a great value play.

Grizzlies (+9.5) At Jazz (-9.5)

The Grizzlies have lost by double digits in two of the three games Donovan Mitchell has played.  The other game they lost by seven, in Memphis.  Now they’re back in Utah with a chance for the Jazz to take the series?  I don’t think it will be close.  The Jazz were the best team in the league at home ATS this season (23-13) and have covered against the Grizzlies in every game this series with Mitchell playing. 

The Jazz currently have 71% of the bets and 87% of the money.  They fall into the “more money on favorites” category mentioned before, and sharp money coming in on the Grizzlies has improved the odds for the Jazz.  Because of how crucial this game is for Memphis, I expect them to lean heavily on Ja Morant.  As such, I like a bet on him to score 35+ at +620 odds.

Mavericks (+7) At Clippers (-7)

Luka Doncic is PISSED OFF after dropping both games in Dallas.  The Mavs went to LA, took a 2-0 series lead, went back to Dallas, and somehow let the Clippers even the series.  Now they have to go back to LA with the series tied and trying to slow down a Clippers team that has been playing with a fire in their eyes recently.  Can the Mavs pull it off?  Probably not, but I think it will be close and the Mavs will cover the spread even if they lose.  Dallas is 20-16 ATS on the road this season (22-16 if you count the playoffs). 

The Clippers may have evened the series but it never should have been 0-2 for them in the first place.  The story for them ever since acquiring Kawhi and PG has been inconsistency and underperformance.  Paul George is shooting under 50% from the field this series and just over 30% from three. He has to be better if the Clippers are going to win the series, but I don’t have confidence he will be. I just can’t trust them as a bettor, and I would rather put my money on a Mavericks team that seems more passionate and more determined. 

I love the over for this game as well (218.5), as I expect Luka to be himself again.  The series has hit the over every game but game 4, which was an anomaly given Luka’s injury.  Because of how he played last game and the series being tied, I expect a huge game from Doncic and would not mind betting on him to score 40+ at +980 odds.

  • My experience working for Consumer Genius was extremely disappointing. Although I completed all my job responsibilities and worked hard, I haven’t received my salary for four months. Despite trying to contact the company several times, I haven’t received a response or any explanation for the delay. It’s not only unethical but also illegal to withhold employees’ salaries. This conduct reflects poorly on the company’s professionalism and respect towards their workforce. I strongly advise anyone against working for this company or considering any business dealings until they show a genuine commitment to treating their employees with respect and paying their salaries on time.

  • Thank you for any other wonderful article. The place else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect approach of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such information.

  • One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the banking institutions intentions any time talking about home foreclosure. One fable in particular is that often the bank needs to have your house. The lending company wants your hard earned money, not the home. They want the bucks they gave you with interest. Averting the bank is only going to draw a new foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your publication.

  • One more thing I would like to talk about is that as an alternative to trying to accommodate all your online degree classes on times that you finish work (as most people are drained when they come home), try to receive most of your classes on the week-ends and only 1 or 2 courses for weekdays, even if it means a little time off your weekend.

  • One thing I’d really like to say is that before buying more computer memory, look at the machine in which it can be installed. If your machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Installing above this would purely constitute just a waste. Make sure one’s motherboard can handle the actual upgrade quantity, as well. Interesting blog post.

  • One thing I’d really like to reply to is that weightloss routine fast can be achieved by the perfect diet and exercise. A person’s size not merely affects the look, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, melancholy, health risks, plus physical abilities are disturbed in putting on weight. It is possible to just make everything right but still gain. Should this happen, a problem may be the root cause. While a lot food and never enough work out are usually guilty, common medical conditions and traditionally used prescriptions can easily greatly amplify size. Many thanks for your post here.

  • It’s my belief that mesothelioma can be the most lethal cancer. It’s got unusual traits. The more I really look at it a lot more I am convinced it does not act like a real solid human cancer. In case mesothelioma can be a rogue virus-like infection, so there is the potential for developing a vaccine and offering vaccination to asbestos exposed people who are at high risk associated with developing potential asbestos associated malignancies. Thanks for expressing your ideas for this important health issue.

  • I have realized that in unwanted cameras, specialized detectors help to {focus|concentrate|maintain focus|target|a**** automatically. The actual sensors with some surveillance cameras change in in the area of contrast, while others use a beam involving infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low light. Higher standards cameras oftentimes use a blend of both methods and will often have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ the face and concentrate only in that. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this weblog.

  • I have figured out some essential things through your blog post post. One other subject I would like to convey is that there are plenty of games in the marketplace designed particularly for preschool age young children.

This helps to keep little ones occupied without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks

  • In my opinion that a foreclosures can have a major effect on the applicant’s life. House foreclosures can have a 8 to decade negative impact on a applicant’s credit report. The borrower who may have applied for home financing or any kind of loans as an example, knows that a worse credit rating will be, the more difficult it is to obtain a decent bank loan. In addition, it could affect any borrower’s ability to find a really good place to lease or rent, if that gets the alternative housing solution. Great blog post.

  • Thanks for your article. What I want to say is that when evaluating a good on-line electronics go shopping, look for a web page with entire information on critical factors such as the security statement, safety measures details, payment methods, and also other terms along with policies. Often take time to read the help and also FAQ areas to get a much better idea of how the shop is effective, what they are able to do for you, and exactly how you can make best use of the features.

  • Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I should also believe is that credit cards giving a 0 rate of interest often entice consumers along with zero interest rate, instant acceptance and easy on the net balance transfers, however beware of the main factor that is going to void the 0 easy street annual percentage rate plus throw one out into the poor house quickly.
