NBA Best Bet - Thursday 9th May
Our picks for today's NBA action
Let's get stuck into this morning's action.
Sam's NBA picks will regularly be giving you picks for the day's hoop action. I recommend backing these individually but you're welcome to parlay them too. Each pick is staked at one unit.
Celtics @ Bucks
Since that first game of the series and that sole Celtics win it has been relentlessly Bucks. Giannis is playing as a man possessed and the Celtics look like a collection of good players but they still have no identity. The Bucks should get the job done here and earn themselves a rest before they face either Toronto or Philly,
Tip: Bucks -8.5
Rockets @ Warriors
The Warriors have lost two on the bounce and Steph Curry looks lost. Curry's poor form seems to have coincided with Kevin Durant taking the team upon his back and Golden State beginning to look like his team.
It's unlikely Curry's woes will cost them again and back on their home court they should have enough to beat the Rockets and cover here. KD will drag them to it, even if Curry and Klay Thompson are off-color.
Tip: Warriors -5.5
