Against The Spread Pick

It appears that the lines makers haven’t learned from the first three games of this series. The Trail Blazers have gotten two of the best Trail Blazers shots and all the Warriors did in each of those games was come out with a victory in a big way. Damian Lillard is playing with separated ribs and it has really hurt his play the last couple of games, especially with his shooting from the field. I think the Warriors can win this game and win it by a large margin. I would not be afraid to lay some solid cash on this game.

Over Under Pick

The total has been difficult to predict in each of the games because the pace has been different so bet this lightly. The one edge I can find in game three was with the Blazers gassing out in the 4th quarter and I think that could happen again in this game. The total is set at 220 and if the Blazers finish around 100 or 105 this game will go under. Back the under as a lean in this one.

Will Draymond Green Record a Triple Double?

This selection is really intriguing for me because the payout on yes is sitting at +225. In game two he only missed a triple-double by three assists and in game three he successfully got one. This is a closeout game and Green is going to have a ton of energy. At +225 there is a ton of value and I think Green will be able to get it done. Take the +225 and run to the bank with it after cashing this ticket.

Total Points – Damian Lillard (23.5)

Damian Lillard is playing with separated ribs and it has really hurt his play. In game two he only had 23 points and in game three it got much worse putting up only 19 points. It’s a closeout game but I see another poor shooting performance from the field which is going to limit his points. Back the under to get the job done.

Against the Spread Pick

Milwaukee did not play great but they forced a couple of overtimes as the series shifted to Toronto. They should still be feeling pretty good heading into game four. Giannis had his worst game of the playoffs as a tight whistle meant more scrutiny for his steps. Others played alright but no player was great for the Bucks. Still they pushed Toronto in a slug fest of a game. They can play better and have the confidence to to so. Toronto was desperate for a win and they got it in a game that neither team played great in, at least not offensively. Toronto got more hero ball from Kawhi Leonard but it was more of a team effort than we have seen in this series. Not a surprise given the location of the game and they will need more of that. The whistle was really tight in game three and things could be a little looser in game four as a result. I am not sure that is good for the Raptors though. Still take the home team as a small favourite.

Over Under Pick

The last game went over but we needed both overtimes to get there. As such it is not a surprise to see the total drop even though we have had back to back overs. I think the whistle won’t be as tight for this one and that generally favours scoring, especially for Giannis. I am getting behind the over as Toronto takes  a breathe and plays with more flow.

First Half Toronto +0.5

Usually when a team is favoured for a game they are favourites for the first quarter and the first half. That is not looking like the case for this one which is interesting and a nice value opportunity. I will take the home team to start a game strong and use the home crowd to build a lead. I like Toronto a lot for this one. I see them winning the game and it is more likely to be as a front runner instead of a comeback.

Prop:  Total Points Pascal Siakam – 18.5 Over

Pascal Siakam had a big game and was important in the victory on Sunday night. He easily went over the rebound total of 6.5 and scored 25 points. That is why I am surprised that the number here is just 18.5. He has been up and down throughout the playoffs but is one of the few Raptors who should still play with great energy even off the double overtime game. He can match the 25 points and cover this one relatively easily.

 

 

 

Latest NBA News

Latest News

The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to actually acknowledge that there games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league. This can only be considered as a good thing for NBA betting and professional basketball bettors. Much like hockey, there are no shortage of NBA predictions on every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

What Free NBA Expert Picks Do You Offer At Pickswise?

There are 2,460 games to bet on during the season and our expert NBA predictions provide betting angles into every game. If you’re looking for the best NBA bets today we have you covered. Our NBA experts share their best free NBA predictions each and every.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?

We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day.  The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyse every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily.  Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedule and referees and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.

Free NBA Predictions Moneyline

The moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not farfetched for the Warriors moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread

When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.

NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or less points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause the upset and win the game outright.

Free NBA Picks Over Under

NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA you might see a 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.

Expert NBA Parlays And Teaser NBA Predictions

NBA teasers are one of the few sports where these types of bets are utilized besides pro and college football. The most common points available in NBA teasers are 4, 4.5, and 5 with some books offering 7 points. You can apply these points on anywhere from 2 to 14 games with each bet you add the payout odds increasing. Of course in order for an NBA teaser to be graded a win, each team on the ticket must be graded a win. NBA parlays work in very much the same manner with between 2 and 10 teams being added to a ticket. You don’t get the 4, 4.5, or 5 points in NBA parlays but the payout odds are better

NBA Playoff Predictions

In addition to free daily NBA predictions, we also provide insight into NBA postseason betting. From best of seven quarterfinals matchups to the NBA Championship Finals, there’s nothing quite like the excitement of game seven in the series. In the NBA postseason home court becomes an even bigger advantage but it’s important to make sure the lines reflect that. Our experts analyse every playoff game and give you their expert NBA predictions to help you make the best selections in April and finish off the season in profit.
