The NBA Playoffs head into Round 2 and the Conference Semifinals where the Celtics-Wizards and the Cavaliers-Raptors in the East and the Spurs-Rockets and the Warriors awaiting the winner of the Jazz/Clippers Game 7 in the West. Let’s looks at series prices, updated Conference odds along with updated NBA Finals odds and then offer up a pick where warranted.

NBA Playoffs Trimming From 16 to Eight

The Conference Semifinal round of the NBA Playoffs begins Sunday before the opening round even ends with John Wall and the Wizards heading to Boston and TD Garden in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference series. The Round 2 brackets will fill out three hours later when the Clippers host the Jazz in Lalaland in Game 7 of their Western Conference series. So oddsmakers have already put up series prices for the Cavaliers-Raptors, Celtics-Wizards as well as for the highly anticipated lone star state Spurs-Rockets.

NBA Playoffs Kick Into High Gear with Two Conference Semifinal Openers Monday

There are two Round 2 NBA Game 1’s Monday, with LeBron James and the defending champion Cavaliers hosting Raptors in the East with Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs welcoming the Rockets to the AT&T in maybe the best of the second round matchups.

BookMaker is also offering four unique Props involving last season’s NBA Finals combatants with a “Will the Cavaliers Win the East?” offering (Yes -251, No +196), “Will the Cavaliers Win the NBA Championship?” (Yes +370, No +510), “Will the Warriors Win the West?” (Yes -425, No +322) and “Will the Warriors Win the NBA Championship?” (Yes -250, No +202), so Offshores are confident in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson being able to redeem themselves this time even with HC Steve Kerr still struggling with chronic back pain.
