Last night we had another 2 wins for our NBA Picks. At 11-3 for the postseason, I’m cooking heading into the weekend, & I’m trying to keep my hot streak with 2 more plays from today’s NBA Odds. 

Bulls vs. Bucks

The Bulls are looking better than ever, (insert injury disclaimer here) and if they continue to play like they are, there next round series is going to be a lot of fun. However they have to beat the Bucks one more time to get to the next round, and with Cleveland on the verge of clinching their berth into the East Semi Finals, you know the Bulls are going to come into this game motivated to get the win, and not have to go back to Chicago.

The NBA odds have the Bulls as -4 ½ favorites on the road tonight, with a total of 188 ½. While I am tempted to lay the points with the Bulls, they looked pretty bad in the first half of Game 3, and if it weren’t for another solid performance by the Bulls backcourt, they would have lost that game. While I do think the Bulls will win, the Bucks’ backs are against the wall. However when it comes to the total of 188 ½, that may mean the under is a solid play tonight.

It being an elimination game will lead to stronger defense from both clubs, and if it wasn’t for a wacky Game 1, and double overtime in Game 3, the under would have been incredible in this series. The under is still 5-2 in their seven games against one another this season, and I see it getting to 6-2 tonight. The under is 7-3 for the Bucks in their last ten games against winning teams, and even with the over cashing in two of the three games this series, the under is still 6-2-2 in their last ten first round playoff games. Take the under in this one.

My NBA Pick: UNDER 188 ½ at 5Dimes

Grizzlies vs. Blazers
The late game tonight is a 2-0 series, but with the way the Blazers have had, if they don’t win this game, they are toast. Even though they aren’t healthy, the Grizzlies are playing excellent basketball right now, and they would love to make this a quick series in order to rest some guys like Mike Conley and Tony Allen. Tonight they have the ability to do that, as the Grizzlies are only +3 underdogs, with a total of 188 ½.

The Blazers have not been able to matchup well with the solid defensive Grizzlies. Outside of LaMarcus Aldridge, who is getting whatever he wants, the Grizzlies are playing well in this series by shutting down everyone else on Portland. Aldridge alone is not enough to beat Memphis, even at home tonight. Conley is looking better even without full health, and if that stays that way tonight the Grizz are the play.

The Blazers are only 7-19-1 in their last 27 first round playoff games, and that does not bode well for them against a team that’s won their last five games in a row ATS. The Blazers are also 0-6 ATS in their last six games, so Memphis is where I’m going here for my NBA pick.

My NBA Pick: Grizzlies +3 at The Greek
