NBA Playoffs – April 24th, 2022

NBA Playoffs

Another day and another easy win in the NBA Playoffs. The Dallas Mavericks didn’t play their best game losing by a single point but still get the cover. My NBA Playoffs daily bets are now a healthy 7-4 (63.3%).

NBA Playoffs: Warriors (-4.5) @ Nuggets $

I played the Warriors in game 2 and got the win. I think I will back them again today. The Nuggets actually played their best possible game and still couldn’t get the victory. Nikola Jokic had 37 & 18 and his team still came up short. It is too much to ask anyone for more, even a reigning MVP. I do not like their chances today in what should be the final game of the series.

It was a demoralizing loss for Denver and a sense of pointlessness could overwhelm the team. A 90% effort from the Nuggets could result in a blowout. The line has adjusted two full points from the last game to (-4.5), but I still see value on the favourites. This is simply a bad matchup for Denver. Jokic cannot win all by himself and he is getting little help right now.

With Devin Booker currently out of the playoffs, the Warriors look like the favourites to come out of the western conference.
