NBA betting lines during the regular season have always been difficult to beat, primarily because it is somewhat of a guessing game as to whether each team will show up night after night ready to play and focused to win. Against that background it is not a stretch to say betting lines are tighter than a dead-heat at this point of the playoffs because every team is showing up every single night ready to play and focused to win.
The very foundation of winning in the post-season rests with the tiny hidden edges one can find and, just in case you think these are idle words, may I point out to you that I am on a 10-3 run with my last 13 NBA playoffs selections and over the past three nights have won three of those games by the narrowest of margins using these edges.
Last night I released a 10-unit play on the Miami Heat laying -11 over the New York Knicks and won by 12 points, 106-94.
On Tuesday night, I released a 10-unit play on the Boston Celtics +1 ½ over the Atlanta Hawks and got the cover in a one-point, 87-86, loss.
On Monday night, I stepped in on the underdog Utah Jazz (+8) over the San Antonio Spurs and got the cover by two points when the latter won by six points, 87-81.
Bookmakers throughout the world are getting heavier action than ever before as the popularity of NBA basketball and the betting that goes with it has become big business in dozens of countries beyond the borders of the United States. Bookmakers cannot afford any weak betting lines and they offer they offer none.
While the lines are hard as a rock, one can still beat them, as I am proving, beating them with the hard work it takes to find a bit of an edge here or there. You can count on me to keep doing that and it will produce winners.
Bettors should also be warned with each step teams take up the playoff ladder, winning becomes exponentially more difficult. If you do not have the knowledge or the time to do the hard work it takes to get it done, please let me go to work for you immediately.
The winning continues tonight with my 50-unit NBA Playoff Showdown Game of the Week. There are three games on tonight's schedule and in those games three teams are up 3-2 in their best-of-7 series and can win their first-round series and move on to their conference semifinals. Conversely, their three opponents can win, tie up their series 3-3 and move on to game seven.
You can win my 50-unit NBA Playoff Showdown Game of the Week for just $25, charged to your major credit card. It is available on this site and toll free at 1-800-755-2255.
NBA Trivia In Play Tonight
Some strong statistical history is in play tonight for some of the six teams and it is anything but trivial. The Chicago Bulls and the Atlanta Hawks were at one time down 3-1, respectively, against the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics and only eight of 202 teams in NBA history of come back to win their series.
Just food for thought.
