NBA Game 4 – Celtics @ 76ers

8 May, 8:05am
76ers $1.36, Celtics $3.20
Down 0-3 in the series, the 76ers will look to keep their season alive on home court this Tuesday. Boston won the first 2 at TD Garden and survived in OT in a crazy game 3. Al Horford continued his dominance in this series with key baskets in game 3. Tatum has scored 20+ points in all 3 games and will be the key once again in game 4. Meanwhile, Jaylen Brown seems to have recovered from a hamstring and collected 16 points from the bench. For the 76ers, they shot just 39% in game 3 and will need to push that over 40% if they want to avoid the sweep. Embiid is the man around the boards after 19 rebounds and he took 26 shots. But all the other starters finished in the – category. In the betting, the 76ers are the warm favourites but this series hasn’t gone their way. So the line for the Celtics is a good bet at +6.5. They could win this based on their form at the moment and even they go down, it shouldn’t be a blowout.
Best bet: Celtics +6.5 $1.92

NBA Game 4 – Raptors @ Cavaliers

8 May, 10:35am
Cavs $1.38, Raptors $3.10
Can the Raptors stop LeBron? After 3 games it’s a large no at the moment. He hit the game winner in game 3 and has scored 38 and 43 points in back to back games. The Cavs are starting to heat up after 4 straight wins and they’ll go for the sweep at home on Tuesday. For the Raptors, they were sloppy in game 3. They had 17 turnovers and 28 fouls, with 15 of those coming from the bench. DeRozan was kept quiet with just 8 points and 3-12 from the field. So he’ll need to rebound if the Raptors want to continue their season. But to get within 2 points was a good sign after a poor first half. They rallied in the 4th, dropping 38 points to almost push the game into overtime. So I’m also going to get on the Raptors at the line. They’ll be desperate to avoid the sweep and their second half was much improved in game 3. DeRozan doesn’t play many poor games and they’ll just hope LeBron doesn’t hurt them once again.
Best bet: Raptors +6 $1.92

NBA Game 5 – Pelicans @ Warriors

9 May, 12:35pm
Warriors -12 $1.92, Pelicans +12 $1.92
The Warriors brought their defence in game 4 as they held the Pelicans under 100 points for the first time in this series. So they’ll head back home with a 3-1 lead and will look to close out the series in front of their home faithful. Durant was lights out in game 4 with 38 points and 15-27 from the field. Curry had 23, which included 4 of 9 from down field. They had just 11 turnovers and shot 48.4% from the field. So the Pelicans will need to be at their very best. It’s fair to say game 4 was n’t a great performance. All 5 starters ended the game in the minus category and they went just 36.4% from the field. Davis was the standout once again with 26 points and 12 rebounds. But his teammates will need to step up to keep this season alive. They have a 1-14 record against the Warriors at this venue since 2012 so it’s not looking good. They’re also 2-10 after a loss when playing in Oakland. The Warriors rarely lose these type of playoff games with the next round insight. So I’ll be getting on Golden State to win by 1-10, which is good value. The Pelicans surely can’t play as bad as they did in game 4 to cover the 12 point line.
Best bet: Warriors 1-10 $2.95
