NBA Playoffs Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – April 24

The underdogs were able to carve out an early edge in the opening round of this year’s NBA Playoffs, but with most of the series heading into Game 4 or Game 5 to tip-off this week’s betting action at BetAnySports, things have evened out quite a bit with the underdogs now 15-14-1 against the spread through the first 30 games. The total line results slightly favor the OVER at 17-13.

Cleveland became the first team to advance to the conference semifinal round with its straight-up 4-0 series sweep against the Indiana Pacers as the second seed in the Eastern Conference. Most of the games remained tight with the Cavaliers going just 1-2-1 against the spread. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing line in the first three contests before staying UNDER 214 points in Sunday’s 106-102 clincher as four-point favorites on the road.

Golden State will be going for the four-game sweep against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night as a seven-point road favorite with the total set at 219.5 points. The top seed in the Western Conference failed to cover in a 121-109 Game 1 victory as a 15-point favorite at home, but the Warriors have been able to cover in their last two wins. The total has gone OVER in two of the first three games.

The Houston Rockets are the No. 3 seed in the West and they will try and close out their series against Oklahoma City on Tuesday night as eight-point home favorites. This after they took a 3-1 series lead this past Sunday with a hard-fought 113-109 win on the road as slight 1.5-point underdogs with BetAnySports. The Rockets are also 3-1 ATS in this series with the total evenly split at 2-2.

Boston came into the playoffs as the top seed in the East, but the Celtics have had their hands full with the surprising Chicago Bulls in a series that is now 2-2 with the road team winning all four games both SU and ATS. The total went OVER in the first two games in Boston before staying UNDER in the next two matchups in Chicago. Game 5 is set for Wednesday night back in Boston at TD Garden.

Washington has a 2-1 series lead against Atlanta heading into Monday’s Game 4 while the other series in the East between Milwaukee and Toronto is tied 2-2 with Game 5 on tap for Monday night as well. The Utah Jaz and the Los Angeles Clippers have battled their way to a 2-2 tie with Game 5 set for Tuesday night as is the case in the other series in the West between Memphis and San Antonio with Game 5 also scheduled for Tuesday night.
