The NBA season rolls into the NBA Playoffs, and we look at some opportunities to make some money in the NBA first round.
GS Warriors -3.5 to beat NO Pelicans @ 1.68 (MarathonBet) – 3 points
The Golden State Warriors are extremely motivated to continue their hot form from the regular season agains the 8th placed Pelicans in this series that they already lead 2-0. Both games were close in their own respect, but the team with a better playoff experience, better players and what turns out to be a top quality coach is lending their hand towards qualifying.
The Warriors have dominated this season thanks to the back court Splash Brothers of Curry and Thompson while being ably supported by Green, Barnes and Bogut in their starting 5 to help out primarily on the defensive end. The Warriors bench is an extremely talented one including the likes of Iguadola, Livingston, Barbosa, Ezli and Speights while Lee recovers from injury.
The Pelicans have relied on only one man, Anthony Davis. While he is going to be a future All-Star and MVP; he needs support in order to deliver on the goods that his team expects, but there is absolutely no support for him. Gordon, Anderson, Asik, Holiday and Cole all play in certain bursts and are not consistent enough for the team to rely on as a top scorer.
This game might be close, but I expect the Warriors to take it and move towards a 3-0 lead in this series.
CLE Cavaliers -3.5 to beat BOS Celtics @ 1.67 (MarathonBet) – 3 points
