NBA SU Parlay – Heats, Suns, Celtics, Grizzlies – Monday & Tuesday
The Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers get their series started on Monday night, with Miami hosting Game 1. While I expect this to be a close series, especially given that they went 2-2 in the regular season, I do like Miami at home, as they had the best home record in the East this season.
After winning in Round 1, the Phoenix Suns are one step closer to another appearance in the NBA Finals. They open at home against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, as they look to continue their dominance over Dallas, who they beat in all 3 regular season meetings. All those wins were comfortable, so expect more of the same here.
You do have to say that the Milwaukee Bucks winning Game 1 of their series against the Celtics was a bit of a surprise given that they lost both games in Boston in the regular season. Given that little nugget of information, I would not be surprised to see the Celtics tie up the series on Tuesday night.
Game 1 of the series between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors was a tight one, with the Dubs winning by a single point. With 30 home wins in the regular season, you would be surprised to see them lose 2 in a row in their own building.
NBA ATS Parlay – 76ers (+8), Suns (-5 ½), Bucks (+4), Grizzlies (+2)
The regular season series between the Heat and the 76ers was about as tight as it gets, with the 4 games being evenly split. If you look at the average score between these teams in their last 10 meetings, they are separated by a single point. I think the 76ers keep Game 1 tight.
The Phoenix Suns absolutely dominated their regular season series versus the Dallas Mavericks, winning all 3 games, winning by an average of over 7 PPG. While things tend to tighten up a little in the postseason, I think the 5 ½ points in Game 1 looks like good value.
The defending champions went on the road and took Game 1 against the Boston Celtics in a fantastic performance. I’m not so sure that they will be able to repeat that in Game 2, but I do like the Bucks to keep things close.
If the whole series between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors is as good as Game 1, then we are in for a treat. That game was decided by a single point in face of the Warriors. I like the Grizzlies to even things up in Game 2, so have to take them at odds of +2.
