June 14th, 2021 NBA Playoffs Betting Tips

Vin

Congratulations to the Phoenix Suns who have stamped their ticket to the Western Conference finals. The trade for Chris Paul has really turned around that franchise and now they are just four wins away from their first trip to the NBA Finals since the days of Charles Barkley.

The Eastern Conference playoffs just got interesting as well with the Bucks evening their series with the Brooklyn Nets. Things are really breaking right for the Bucks right now with Kyrie Irving going down with an injury. Nobody wants to see an injury in the playoffs, but this really opens up the Bucks path towards the Finals. They’ve opened as a slight underdog for game five in Brooklyn which I think is a mistake. This team is really cooking right now.

Two big games tonight with the Hawks and Clippers both looking to even their series.

Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks Betting Tips:

The Hawks took game one of this series and the Sixers dominated the next two games. That makes tonight a must-win scenario for the Hawks as a loss here will send them back to Philly down 3-1.

I have to think that the Hawks are going to launch some more threes in this one as that is their best path to victory. The team made the strange decision to somewhat abandon them in game three, attempting a playoff-low of 23. Their outstanding game one was all about the three ball so going back to that would be a smart move.

That said, the Sixers have been outstanding on defense over the past couple of games and have really been able to control the flow. Still, their injury issues have me a bit worried about them taking complete control of this series tonight. Joel Embiid is dealing with an injury and now the team will be without Danny Green as well.

It feels like the Hawks have it in them to extend this series tonight. Take them with the points.

Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers Betting Tips:

This is just how the Clippers play apparently. They went down in their series against the Mavericks and then manage to figure things out and come back. Now they are looking to do the same against the Jazz.

Paul George and Kawhi Leonard combined for 43 in game one, 48 in game two, and 65 in game three. They lost the first two and won the third. Funny how that works. I’ve said before that I think this team is coming out of the West and that doesn’t change. A win at home here will keep them on that path.

Pick: Bet Clippers -4.5

The improved points total for the Clippers’ starts lead to a an easy over on the total and now all three games in this series have went over the posted total. I see no reason that stops here and the over looks like another solid bet.

Pick: Bet Clippers/Jazz Over 223.5
