2015/16 NBA Playoffs Betting Tips

The NBA playoffs are in full swing with a few early upsets and some poor performances from some star players drawing the attention of the headline writers. There are three games on the slate for Thursday (Australian time) and we’ve circled a few NBA betting tips we really like.

Portland @ Los Angeles Clippers 12:35 AEDT

Portland were blown out of the water in Game 1 a little bit and never really had a chance against the Clippers. Coach Terry Stotts has been very impressive this season at making adjustments and we expect them to be more competitive in Game 2.

The hype around the Clippers from a lot of their beat writers is a bit silly. They are unproven against good teams still and we know they are very suspect late in games. Portland can get hot at the drop of a hat and Lillard and CJ will be disappointed by the Game 1 stinker. Take the points, this line looks two points too high!

Suggested bet: Portland +8.5 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 70%

Detroit @ Cleveland 10:05 AEDT

Detroit battled really well in Game 1 and this line looks too high against the Cavaliers. The most important thing to take out of that game was the fact that the Cavaliers Big 3 of Love, Irving and James combined to score 70+ points. They all played pretty well but the Cavs only just beat the Pistons.

Stan Van Gundy’s men should take confidence from that! They took punches from the Cavs star players and kept coming back for more. We have the spread at 7.5 and the common line at the moment looks too high!

Suggested bet: Detroit +10 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 75%

Charlotte @ Miami 9:05 AEDT

Miami are our pick to go all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. We love the addition of Joe Johnson and how focused they seem down in South Beach. These guys know that the East is wide open right now and they are a legit chance to face their old for King James in the ECF.

The Heat were brilliant in Game 1, they crushed the Hornets in all areas. It’s really tough to see the Bugs coming back from that beating! Miami will continue to surge at home and cover that spread for us.

Suggested bet: Miami -4.5 @ $1.95 William Hill
Confidence level: 70%
