William Hill NBA & NHL Playoffs Betting Tips – 17th April, 2018

It’s a huge day in US Sports on Tuesday as the NBA and NHL playoffs continue. Early in the day, we’ll look at the Bruins and Maple Leafs clash. Then we turn to the NBA action with Aussie Ben Simmons and the 76ers looking for their 18th straight win. Lastly, we’ll preview the Warriors clash against the Spurs.

NHL – Boston Bruins @ Toronto Maple Leafs

17 Apr, 09:05am
Maple Leafs $1.87, Bruins $1.97
After two dominant wins for the Bruins, the series will head to Toronto. Boston have outscored the Maple Leafs 12-4 so far in two games. But the Toronto side will be looking forward to home ice advantage. They went 29-10-2 at home this season and have a 23-16-8 record after a loss. The Bruins don’t really play well here as they’ve record just 3 wins in the last 10 meetings. They’ve also lost the last 4 clashes at Air Canada Centre. So with the series on the line as sorts, the Maple Leafs should win this. After going down 4-0 in the 1st quarter of game 2, they showed some fight in the latter stages with 3 goals apiece. So they should use that momentum into this clash.
Best bet: Maple Leafs WIN $1.87

NBA – Miami Heat @ Philadelphia 76ers

17 Apr, 10:05am
76ers $1.32, Heat $3.50
The 76ers won the first game 130-103 and extended their winning streak to 17 games. So they deserve favouristism in game 2 against the Heat at $1.32. The Heat were in the hunt for the first half but fell away badly in the second half as they were outscored 74-43. After giving up 130, it’s hard to see their defence changing in a matter of days. Ben Simmons dominated with 14 assists and Redick scored 28 points. So in game 2, the 76ers will look to keep the 3 ball going as they out shot the Heat 64% to 46%. They also have the better bench, which included 25 points by Belinelli and 17 by Ilyasova. Thus it’s hard to back against the line for the 76ers. They’re 49-33-1 against the line this season and have a 31-11 record at home. The Heat are just 18-24 on the road and just don’t have the scoring options to compete with Philly. So after a 27 point win in game 1, I’ll back the 76ers to beat the 6.5 point line.
Best bet: 76ers -6.5 $1.92

NBA – San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors

17 Apr, 12:35pm
Warriors $1.16, Spurs $5.50
The Warriors kicked off their playoff campaign with a comfortable 113-92 win over the Spurs. Kevin Durant led the way with 24 points and 8 rebounds. It was their 9th win over the Spurs in the last 10 meetings as well. So they go into game 2 as the clear favourite. The Spurs shot poorly in game 2, hitting just 40% from the field. They were also dominated around the boards. So the main question is whether the Warriors can by 11+ again? This season, they’ve won games by 11+ at 39%, which is fairly high. The Spurs are woeful on the road with a 14-28 record, so it’s hard to see them improving from game 1. The Warriors went 30-12 at home and they’re 7-3 ATS versus the Spurs in the last 10 meetings. At home, they’re 3-1 against the 11+ margin so I’ll be taking it here.
Value bet: Warriors 11+ $2.00
