NBA Playoff Picks - Friday, May 28
This Friday we have three games and Sean Highkin is back on OddsChecker giving his picks for every single game tonight.
This series is so close that I'm inclined to just take the moneyline for whichever team has the better odds each time out, which in the case of Game 3 is the Knicks. Atlanta stole Game 1 at Madison Square Garden, and there's no reason to think the Knicks can't do the same thing with a much less strong home-court advantage in Atlanta.
The pick: Knicks ML @ +165
Three of the four Eastern Conference first-round series have gone the same way: the lower seed gave themselves a chance in the first game, but ultimately fell short, and then the next game was completely non-competitive. Boston had their shot in Game 1. Even with the series shifting to their home court, there's no real reason to think they have a chance to hang with a Brooklyn team that's starting to click. Take the Nets and the points—this one should be another blowout like Game 2.
The pick: Nets -7.5 @ -109
The Mavs just took both of the first two games in the Clippers' building and now return home to what should be a nearly-full home crowd. After Game 2, the Clippers said they weren't worried—they should be. This is looking like the same story as their playoff flameout in the bubble last year, a would-be title contender that folded. They haven't had any answers for Luka Doncic and there isn't an obvious adjustment the Clippers can make on him. With Dallas getting plus odds to win at home, it's a no-brainer.
The pick: Mavericks ML @ +115
