Our basketball expert picks out his best bets for this evening’s NBA action

The NBA Playoffs are officially underway, with several series already two games down.

Three more first round ties get underway this evening, with several interesting clashes to look forward to.

Our NBA expert has looked through the markets, picking out some selections that could be worth backing ahead of tonight’s games.

Here are the best bets for Tuesday’s Playoff games.


After a tough opening game against the Bucks, the Pacers need to get back on track tonight.

Indiana was all over the place, with their offense failing to deliver like they did in the regular season – shooting only 39% from the field.

Tyrese Haliburton looked a ghost of his former self, only managing to score nine points in total in Game 1.

That should only really be a blip, as Haliburton has managed to put up 20 or more points in seven of his previous nine career starts against the Bucks.

The Pacers guard should be pushing harder for points this time around, so 20 or more points looks an achievable total.

Indiana likely will produce a better performance here, and with Giannis missing – they could well take the chance to tie the series here.

TIP: Indiana Pacers Moneyline (-102, FanDuel)
TIP: Tyrese Haliburton 20+ Points (+110, FanDuel)


After suffering defeat in Game 1, Dallas find themselves in a must-win situation against the Clippers.

The Mavericks were miles behind in the first half, but they halved the deficit in the closing half to record only a 12-point defeat.

If that first-half slump doesn’t happen again and James Harden doesn’t produce a similarly spectacular performance, Dallas should be in contention in Game 2.

The Clippers are waiting on whether Kawhi Leonard will be fit, and he could prove to be a big miss here.

The Mavs have become underdogs on the spread, so they look good value to win here on the moneyline.

TIP: Dallas Mavericks Moneyline (+102, FanDuel)
