Raptors vs. Bucks NBA Over-Under Betting Prediction from Brandon Shively: April 27th 2017

Toronto Raptors vs. Milwaukee Bucks
NBA Over-Under Prediction: Under 195 points (April 27th 2017)

In Game Five I had the over and cashed when the Raptors and Bucks both shot the ball well and the game finished at 211 points. I think there is some value on the under in this one. It would be really hard for these two teams to shoot as well as they did last game. The Bucks shot 50% from the floor and were still blown out. The Raptors shot almost 60% from the floor.

With the Bucks having their backs against the wall here, I expect the tempo to slow down and the defenses to both pick it up a notch or two.

Take the under.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Over-Under Odds & Pick: April 20th 2017

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers
NBA Over-Under Pick: Under 211 points (April 20th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach NBA Thursday Free Pick UNDER the total in Indiana Pacers vs Cleveland Cavaliers @ 7 ET – There has been red hot shooting so far in this series so, not surprisingly, both games have found the way over the total. As a result, the posted O/U on this game has been driven up and that is leading to some additional line value here in Game 3. With 2 days of rest in between games we could see some of the hot shooting touch fade here. Also, 8 of the Pacers last 12 home games have stayed under the total. Indiana, down 0-2 in this series, knows they need to play better defense if they’re going to get back into this series with a win tonight. The under is 7-1 this season when the Cavs enter a game having played each of their three prior games at home. Even with the first two games of this playoff series going over the total, the under is still 6-3 in Pacers playoff games in recent seasons. Look for the Pacers to do a better job of limiting the Cavaliers weapons here after allowing the Cavs to shoot 54.5% from the field in Cleveland in the first two games of this series. Free Pick on UNDER the total in Indiana early Thursday evening. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets Over-Under Betting Pick: April 16th 2017

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets
Over-Under Betting Pick: Under 227.5 points (April 16th 2017)

This isn’t an easy bet to make considering the way the Rockets love to push the pace and pile up the points, but I do think there is value here. The under is 46-26 in the last 72 NBA playoff games with a total of 218 points or higher.

The Thunder have improved defensively down the stretch. Oklahoma City is also not running quite as much as they did early in the year.

In the NBA playoffs, the under has had a lot of value in the past in the first round. That has been especially true of the higher totals like this one. The defenses generally work a lot harder, and things slow down because there is a lot on the line.

Take the under in this one.

Cavaliers vs. Celtics Over-Under Betting Odds & Pick: April 5th 2017

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics
NBA Betting Pick: Under 220 points -110 odds (April 5th 2017)

This is a game that means a lot to both teams as they fight for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Expect the defenses to play better than normal in this one. Typically, late in the year when there is a lot on the line, the games are lower scoring. That should be the case here.

Neither one of these teams are playing very fast lately, so it will take some high shooting percentages to get the game over this total.

Marc Davis is the lead referee in this game, and he has been the best under referee in all of basketball in the last five years. That’s a really nice bonus for the under. The under is hitting at better than 55% in Davis’ last 200 games called.

Look for a tight game that stays under this total by several points. Take the under.

Wizards vs. Hornets NBA Prediction from Jack Jones: April 4th 2017

Washington Wizards vs. Charlotte Hornets
NBA Prediction: Hornets +4 (April 4th 2017)

The Charlotte Hornets are coming on strong just in time.  They have gone 7-2 SU & 7-2 ATS in their last nine games to pull within one game of the Miami Heat for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  They have recent road wins over both Toronto and Oklahoma City during this stretch.

The Washington Wizards have gone in the other direction.  They are 5-7 SU & 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall.  This is a tough spot for them as it will be their first game back home following a 5-game road trip that ended with a 115-139 loss at Golden State.  They are fatigued right now to say the least.

The Wizards are 0-7 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up loss.  Washington is 1-7 ATS in its last eight games following an ATS loss.  The Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games.  The underdog is 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings.  Bet the Hornets Tuesday.

Nets vs. 76ers NBA Over-Under Betting Pick from Scott Rickenbach: April 4th 2017

Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Over-Under Pick: Under 222.5 points (April 4th 2017)

Free Pick – Rickenbach NBA Tuesday UNDER the total in Philadelphia 76’ers vs Brooklyn Nets @ 7:05 ET – This total is up a full five points from it’s opener of 217.5 and Philly tends to play a little better defense when at home. This is especially true when they see it as a winnable game which this one certainly is as they host the lowly Nets. Of course Brooklyn is one of the few team in the league with a record worst than that of Philadelphia’s so the Sixers will got all out here. The 76’ers have had just 1 over in their last 7 home games. Philly has held 6 of their last 8 opponents under 46% from the field when at home and they’ve held their opponent to combined 39% from the field in their last 3 home games combined. The Nets come into this one having stayed under the total in 10 of their last 15 games. Also, the under is 9-5 this season when Brooklyn is off of an upset win as an underdog and the Nets are an identical 9-5 to the under when they face a divisional foe. The Sixers are 10-3 to the under this season when they are off of a divisional game and Philly is coming off of a hard-fought loss at Toronto on Sunday. Free Pick on UNDER the total in Philadelphia Tuesday
