Brooklyn Nets @ Philadelphia 76ers
Prediction – 230.5
Finals time means defense and both these sides have a tendency to slack off a little in this area during the regular season.
A combined season total average of 226 and when they match up on each other that number increases to 234.
Tough to pick a winner but the Nets on the line could be a decent pick if Embiid doesn’t play for the 76ers.
Expect a solid amount of defense for this final and the Game Total going under looks pretty good.
Orlando Magic @ Toronto Raptors
Prediction – 216.5
The Orlando Magic has been a hot team of late and in some good form coming into the playoffs.
The Raptors have arguably the best defender in the league and will bring some pressure in this contest. The Magic at the line doesn’t look too bad and both these sides are great defensively. They have a combined average of 208 in their last 5 contests.
Expect a tight game and both sides to get to 100, just.
Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors
Prediction Golden State – 12.5
The Warriors have a bunch of players who have a ridiculous amount of recent finals experience.
Stephen Curry plays well against the Clippers and his points total may be worth a look.
The Warriors will bring a lot of effort on the defensive end and should win this game by a significant margin.
San Antonio Spurs @ Denver Nuggets
Prediction – 211.5
San Antonio has been the talk of the town to cause the first upset in the NBA Finals against an out of form Nuggets outfit. Because the Spurs have some experienced big game players this game is a flip of the coin. The Spurs to cover the spread does look ok.
Denver is one of the best defensive sides in the league at home. These two sides have a combined average of 212 in their last five contests. Both sides will bring it on the defensive end and the Game Total number does seem rather high. The under looks pretty good in this encounter.
So there are some NBA Finals picks for April 13th, 2019.
Game Total – 3/3
Against the Spread – 1/1
