NBA Picks - Friday 10th May
Our picks for today's NBA action
Let's get stuck into the action today.
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.
Raptors @ 76ers
The difference in this series has been the contrast between the Raptors best player, Kawhi Leonard and the Sixers best, Joel Embiid. Embiid has only had one standout game, whereas Kawhi has put up some serious numbers in each game.
The Sixers need to win to force this to a Game Seven and I'm certain that Embiid, Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris will do enough to force that to happen, or at least cover the spread. The question is what they'll do with Ben Simmons.
Nuggets @ Trail Blazers
Much like Sixers, Portland needs to win on their home court to take this to a decisive Game Seven. They have all the firepower to be able to do that and if Dame Lillard is draining threes then I expect them to do so and cover the spread too. Roll on Game Seven.
