Welcome to another stacked day of NBA Playoff Odds! Our handicappers are ready to release more of our valuable NBA Picks and with three games on Friday, we have several plays to add to your bankroll tonight.

&Two-Team Teaser

With the limited slate of NBA Odds tonight, we have to pick our plays carefully. That’s why I am recommending a teaser on the first and final game of this Friday night.

The first between the Wizards and Hawks should be a good one with the Hawks trying to force a Game 7 back in Washington DC. Atlanta only shot 40% from the floor in game 5 and only lost by four points and they will be looking to improve on that back at home where they have been much better on offense.

However, by all accounts this should be a lower scoring game and it should stay close unless the Hawks are shooting 50% from the floor like they did in Game 3. I doubt that happens, but I also doubt the Hawks’ ability to put together a good game here.

John Wall has been unstoppable in this series and I doubt he lets the Wizards lose this one by more than one or two possessions, if they even lose at all. Teasing up the Wizards to +8 looks like the way to go in our first leg.

The second leg is teasing down the Utah Jazz’s NBA Odds here in Game 6. They are currently -6 favorites, but a five-point teaser moves then to -1 for our NBA Picks tonight and with a 3-2 lead and no desire to travel back home, the Jazz should take this one. Assuming they slow down Chris Paul enough tonight, the Clippers won’t have enough offense to counter Utah at home tonight.

Celtics vs. Bulls

Rajon Rondo is still not healthy enough to play in Game 6 of this series and after the Celtics won the first home game of this series in Game 5, I think their confidence is up enough to take Game 6 on the road in Chicago tonight.

The Bulls have been completely outcoached in this series after the first two games and since then the Celtics have wiped the floor with the Bulls. Being without Rondo has hurt, which is still surprising to say this season. However, Brad Stevens is making Fred Hoiberg his bitch in this series and after three straight games Hoiberg still hasn’t figured out how to slow down the C’s small-ball offense.

With Al Horford playing well and no one available to stop Isaiah Thomas with Rondo out, things have fallen apart for Chicago and they are back to playing like a lottery team. Dwyane Wade has absolutely checked out too, even after his near-triple double in Game 5. I see Boston coming out as the more desperate team, despite having the series lead.
