Heat, Clippers Look To Build On Strong Performances at Home

Posted by Craig Parsons on 4/24/2013 7:14:56 PM

Parity isn’t exactly the best word to use when describing the first round of the NBA playoffs. That said, there is still a chance that things can change in a number of series as the locations shift for game three. The Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers have firm control of their respective series’ after sweeping the first two games at home, but the Clippers in particular could get a tougher challenge when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies in game three. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls are tied at one win each in their sports betting series, with Chicago looking to take the lead at home.

Miami Heat @ Milwaukee Bucks
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET – Heat Lead 2-0

Miami is coming off back-to-back double-digit wins over the Bucks, and there is zero chance they will let off the gas as the online sportsbook series shifts to Milwaukee. The Heat were disrespected by the Bucks heading in to the postseason when Brandon Jennings projected his team would win this series in six, and now Miami is about to make sure that has no chance of becoming reality with a third-straight win to open the series on Thursday. Lebron James and company are on a mission to get back to the NBA finals as fast as possible, and a 12-game playoff-win streak must sound good to them.

NBA Betting Pick: Miami Heat – 4.5

Brooklyn Nets @ Chicago Bulls
Thursday, 7:30 PM ET – Series Tied 1-1

The situation is much different heading in to game three between the Nets and Bulls, as Chicago managed to steal the split at Brooklyn and can now take a three-games-to-one lead and home advantage by winning both games at home. The only series in the East with some real parity to it, many will argue that the Bulls are the better team but dealt with a lot more adversity during the regular season with injuries playing a major role. Chicago still doesn’t have Derrick Rose or Joakim Noah, but now they get the hometown fans on their side and that will only bring out even more energy with this club.

NBA Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls – 2.5

Los Angeles Clippers @ Memphis Grizzlies
Thursday, 9:30 PM ET – Clippers Lead 2-0

This is the second season in a row that these online betting teams meet in the playoffs, and Memphis will point back to last year’s seven-game series as inspiration for battling back after falling in to an early 0-2 hole. The problem is that the Grizzlies are not that same team after losing Rudy Gay, while the Clippers are a much better team after playing together for a year. Los Angeles’ best chance at reaching the NBA Finals needs to steal one of these two games in order to have a shot at clinching the series in game five at home, and it wouldn’t be a surprise at all if Blake Griffin and company just kept on rolling in game three.

NBA Betting Pick: Los Angeles Clippers + 2.5
