Brooklyn Nets getting +10.0 points at only -114 odds, we had to take it. The Nets have found a way to battle during the bubble and we expect that to carry over into playoffs. Yes, the Raptors are a top tier team with great potential, but they are beatable and do not warrant a 10 point cushion for the Nets. The Raptors have generally destroyed the Nets, winning 6 of the last 7 games. However, the only W by the Nets came back in February, the last time these two met up and they won by 10 points. The game before that, they only lost by 1 point to Toronto. We believe the Nets can pull out a game 1 victory especially with the spread and we would be scared if we were Toronto fans, they could be joining the Maple Leafs out on the golf course.
The Utah Jazz have also been playing very tough during the restart of the NBA season; they have had no problem putting up points, but their defense has been awful. In the last two seasons, these squads played 6 times with the Jazz winning the first 3 and the Nuggets winning the last 3 games; however, they were all tight matchups. The last game was played only 9 days ago when they went to OT and Denver won by 2 points. We love the Jazz getting +5 points in game 1 and we will definitely be looking for the outright win.
The NBA Playoffs are here! Enjoy!
