Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics (Thurs, 01:30)

Cavs by 11-15 Points @ 11/2 - BET NOW

Celtics star Isiah Thomas has been the most talked about player of the playoffs so far. He’s averaging over 25 points per game in the postseason, but the bookies don’t see him being able to propel his team to a win against a dominant Cavs side who have won their last eight games, i.e. 4-0 against the Pacers and the Raptors.

Boston are available at a best price of 33/20 to go one up in the series and while they’re in with a chance, I’m not going to back them on the road. Cleveland are too strong at home and a price of 11/19 for a team that is so in form is highly tempting. Get on them to win by 11-15 points, but make sure you check our price comparison here, because there is a decent price difference between the bookmakers offering odds on that winning margin!

Golden State Warriors vs San Antonio Spurs (Sun, 02:00)

Warriors -6 Points @ 9/10 - BET NOW

Warriors took the Spurs to the cleaners in game two. Already one up in the series, Golden State won each quarter and smashed San Antonio by 136-100, setting a marker for the rest of the series. Can anyone see them coming back from such a dispiriting beating? I can’t. Steph Curry ran the show, dropping 29 points and looking in ominous form. But no Kawhi Leonard meant no chance for the Spurs, who had found a way to close out the Houston Rockets without their star in the last round, but showed zero fight when faced with the challenge against these Warriors this time around.

LaMarcus Aldridge had a nightmare game, hitting just one shot in the first half. Warriors are 10-0 in the postseason so far and just seem to be cruising to win after win. They might still bottle it when it matters most, but backing them to go 3-0 up makes sense to me. They’ve got the momentum and have psychologically crushed their opponents now.
