Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics

01 May, 10:05pm
76ers $1.67, Celtics $2.25
Game 1 of the series between the Celtics and 76ers kicks off on Tuesday morning at TD Garden. There’s no love lost in this rivalry so this should be a fun series to watch. It seems like forever ago that the 76ers finished off the Heat in their series. So they should be refreshed for the Celtics. They come off a 7 game series against the Bucks, in which they won all 4 at home. But they will start as the underdog against the flying Sixers. In the head to head this season, the Celtics lead 3-1. But the 76ers did win the last contest at TD Garden 89-80 in January. Philly recorded a 24-19 record on the road this season and they will need to keep the rocking Boston crowd quiet. That will mainly be the job of Ben Simmons who dominated the Heat. He owned the boards and averaged 15 points per game. Meanwhile for Boston, they’re getting key points from the bench and Al Horford is showing the Celtics why they signed him. He simply outplayed the Greek Freak in game 7 on his way to 26 points. But in the end, the Celtics D should be the key in this game falling under the total. They’ll likely slow the tempo, especially after a tough 7 game series. The last game at TD Garden between the sides was low scoring as well.
Best bet: Under 208 points $1.91

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Toronto Raptors

02 May, 10:05pm
Raptors $1.38, Cavs $3.10
The Cavs advanced to the next round after a tough 7 game series against the Pacers. LeBron basically carried his team across the line and he’ll have to do the same against the Raptors. They comfortably beat the Wizards and will be refreshed for this home game. The Raptors have been incredible at home this season as they hold a 34-7 record. The Cavs aren’t a great travelling side, especially considering a game 6 loss against the Pacers by 34 points. So it’s going to be a big ask for LeBron against a better Raptors team. The last meeting in Toronto was a 133-99 victory for the home side so I’m jumping on the Raptors at the line.
Best bet: Raptors -6 $1.92

New Orleans Pelicans @ Golden State Warriors

02 May, 12:35pm
Warriors $1.13, Pelicans $6.25
The Warriors simply outclassed the Pelicans in game 1 and they’ll return to their home court looking for a 2-0 lead. Without Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson led the way. Durant scored 26 and had 13 rebounds. Thompson was equally as good. So the Pelicans will need to step in defence if they want to avoid another loss. Anthony Davis continued his good form with 21 points in game 1 and Rondo recorded 10+ assists again. But they’re definitely underdogs in game 2 as the Warriors are just a better team at the moment. So I like the Warriors at the line and to keep this high scoring. The two sides reached the over total in game 1 and it should be free flowing in game 2. The Pelicans will be desperate for a win before heading home. The Warriors are on another level though and should cover the line/total double.
Best bet: Warriors -5.5 & Over 219.5 points $2.05
