Fri 4/19

Indiana has had scoring droughts that have hampered their chances and allowed Boston to both win and cover in Games 1 and 2. The Pacers haven't shown the ability to score enough points even while holding the Celtics below their average. Boston is going to figure out how to score, and I don't think Indana will keep up. I like the Celts straight-up on Friday but will take the points.

The Bucks and Pistons have played six times this season counting the playoffs, with Milwaukee destroying Detroit in five of those games while winning all six and going 5-0-1 ATS. Lay it as Milwaukee avoids a letdown.

Thu 4/18

Philly embarrassed the Nets in Game 2, but now they're back in Brooklyn for their first home playoff game in four years. Combined with Joel Embiid provoking the Nets, I'm looking for a big effort from the home side. The home team has covered five of the past seven meetings. Grab the points.

Thu 4/18

The Thunder have had plenty of time to re-focus after their miserable performances in Portland. They're 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games playing on two days' rest. Playing at home with their season on the line, look for OKC's desperation to translate to a solid win. Lay it.

Wed 4/17

The Rockets are on a mission and they match up extremely well with the Jazz. Utah will be better prepared but doesn't have an answer defensively. With Houston on a 6-0-1 ATS tear at home, I'll lay the points in Game 2.
