The UF Team name their top tips for this evening’s NBA action
It’s getting tight in the NBA playoffs, with two Game 6 matchups on the agenda this evening.
With plenty of odds available, we have picked out a few selections that could be worth backing this evening.
Here are the best bets for Friday’s NBA Conference Semi-Finals games.
NY KNICKS @ MIA HEAT (7:30pm ET)
The Heat are in the driving seat heading into Game 6, with the eighth-seed needing a sole win in the final two games to dump the Knicks out of the playoffs.
That is exactly what could happen here, with Miami winning seven of their last eight home games and covering the spread in eight of their last 10 games at the Kaseya Centre.
Their spread line looks in reach, which could be combined into a Same Game Parlay with Jimmy Butler’s points line.
Butler has been criticised by some pundits for his latest performance, stating that he simply was not aggressive enough in scoring.
Expect him to take this personally, with his over 28.5 points line looking achievable as he leads the Heat into the Eastern Conference Finals.
TIP: MIA Heat -5.5 + Jimmy Butler Over 28.5 Points (+196, FanDuel)
GS WARRIORS @ LA LAKERS (10:00pm ET)
A huge matchup lies in wait in LA, with the Lakers needing a win tonight to eliminate the current NBA Champions.
While the Lakers have enough in the tank to get the job done, the Warriors will not give in easily and will likely push LeBron James & co. all the way.
Their moneyline price doesn’t offer much value, but it could well be worth pairing it with a certain player prop.
Anthony Davis has been a monster defensively throughout the playoffs, averaging 13.7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 1.2 steals per game in his last 10 starts.
His blocks line has been lowered due to the fact he hasn’t registered one in his last two starts, but in a crunch game like tonight’s, he could well get that stat back up here.
Expect a big game from the eight-time All-Star here, as well as the Lakers progressing to the Conference Finals.
