William Hill NBA & NHL Playoffs Betting Tips – 15/16 May, 2018

NBA Game 1 – Warriors at Rockets

15 May, 11:05am
Rockets $1.83, Warriors $2.02
The West is down to 2 teams, with the Warriors and Rockets going head to head for a spot in the NBA finals. As the number 1 seed, the Rockets will get home court advantage for the first two games of the series. They beat the Jazz in 5 games and also defeated the Timberwolves in 5 games previously. So they have an 8-2 record in the playoffs this season and will be confident of beating the Warriors in game 1. Meanwhile, the Warriors have an identical record as the Rockets. They beat the Pelicans 4-1 in a high scoring series, which came after a 4-1 series win over the Spurs. In the head to head, the two sides played 3 games against each other this season and the Rockets lead 2-1. In January, they beat them at this venue 116-108 as they rebounded from a 124-114 defeat to the Warriors 10 days prior. So in this matchup of the two best scoring teams in the NBA, you would figure the over/under total bet is the way to go as this game could either way. Looking at the stats, the under does have a good trend in this matchup. At this venue, the Warriors are 13-6 against the under. This season, the Rockets had a great record against the under with 51 of 89 games going to the under total. The Warriors also went 47-44 against the under this season. So I’ll be getting on the unders in what should be an entertaining game 1.
Best bet: Under 224 points $1.91

NHL Game 2 – Knights @ Jets

15 May, 10:05am
Jets $1.67, Knights $2.25
The Jets won the first game of the series 4-2 and they’ll look for a 2-0 lead when they face the Golden Knights on Tuesday. They jumped out to a 3 goal lead in the first quarter and they were defensively too strong for the Vegas side in the end. So the Jets will be the favourites in game 2 and it’s hard to see them dropping this important game. They’re 5-2 at home in the 2018 playoffs and in their last 2 games overall, they’ve outscored teams 9-3. Vegas does have a 4-2 record in away games and the key will be getting a fast start in game 2. However, the stats say the Jets will win this matchup. They’re 62-39-9 at home after a win and they’re now 2-1 against the Golden Knights at home.
Best bet: Jets WIN $1.67

NBA Game 2 – Cavaliers @ Celtics

16 May, 10:35am
Celtics $1.85, Cavaliers $1.97
A sellout crowd at TD Garden saw the Celtics dominate game 1 with a 108-83 victory. They started quickly in the first quarter, outscoring the Cavs 36-18. With a 61-35 Celtics lead at half-time, it was pretty much over for the Cavs. LeBron had arguably his worst game of the 2018 playoffs. He committed 7 turnovers and went 0-5 from the 3 point line on his way to just 15 points. For the Celtics, Brown, Horford and Morris all scored 20 or more points. But the defence was the key as they just dominated the Cavs all game. So in game 2, they’re favourites once again. At TD Garden in this playoff series, the Celtics own a 8-0 record and have beaten the line in all 8 games. So after thrashing the Cavs in game 1, it’s hard to see them causing an upset. They rely on LeBron and the Celtics D will prove too strong again.
Best bet: Celtics -1 $1.92
