Bet NBA Playoffs – NBA Picks For Friday, April 30th

Atlanta Hawks @ Milwaukee Bucks
Betting Odds: Hawks -2

Online betting fans were shocked on Wednesday when the Milwaukee Bucks went into Atlanta and won. While head coach Scott Skiles isn’t getting much mention as coach of the year, he definitely deserves it as he has done more with this roster than anybody in the NBA could have.

It seems like the Bucks finally figured out the Hawks down the stretch of the fourth quarter. They have been playing tough defense on them for three straight games and it all finally clicked on what they need to do to slow the Hawks.

The Hawks are a perimeter team and they don’t play well on the road, so there really isn’t too much reason to put faith in them.

The Bucks are tough mentally and they need it. This will be their toughest contest as they don’t have the experience of putting a team away. But at the same time, their experience comes from Skiles and with some good defense once again, they’ll win their fourth straight and the series.

Bet NBA Playoffs: Bucks +2 Los Angeles Lakers @ Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Odds: Thunder -1.5 The Los Angeles Lakers have had their hands full with the Oklahoma City Thunder but that appears to be coming to an end. Whether it’s in Game 6 in Oklahoma City or in Game 7 in Los Angeles is the question. One big difference throughout this series has been the free throw line. The Thunder have had 80 attempts at home in Games 3 and 4, and if they get that many again in Game 6, they will probably win. But if the Lakers can force them to shoot more and avoid putting them at the charity stripe, this game will come down to the wire, which could give the Lakers a change to steal it. It’s a coin flip but with two days off to prepare, look for the Lakers to put this one to bed and move on.

Bet NBA Playoffs: Lakers +1.5

Denver Nuggets @ Utah Jazz
Betting Odds: Jazz -4.5

NBA betting fans know that the end might be very well near for the Nuggets. Not only are they down 3-2 in the series and heading to Salt Lake City as an underdog, they now have to play with a bruised front court.

Center Nene looks like he’ll be out for a while as he has a sprained knee, which many deem to be a torn ACL. Backup Chris Andersen is also limping and power forward Kenyon Martin is an injury waiting to happen as is.

Meanwhile, the Jazz have smoked the Nuggets in two games in Utah so far in this series and considering the Nuggets will be without a starter, they could be in some real trouble.

When you start to do the math – no Nene, no George Karl and locker room squabbles – it’s clear that the Nuggets are coming unglued. Denver will win if this series goes seven so expect some urgency – and a big win – from Utah on Friday.
