3 games today and a couple of home sides will need to win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Here are some NBA Picks for April 19th, 2019.
Toronto Raptors 1 @ Orlando Magic 1
Prediction – 211.5
The Magic have been the form team coming into the playoffs, but beating the Toronto Raptors featuring Kawhi Leonard will be a big ask.
This game should be low scoring with the Magic having to win to regain the advantage over the Raptors. The Raptors do have a lot of depth and with the addition of Marc Gasol, should be too good against a Home Magic team.
The Raptors to go close to covering is a decent option in this encounter.
Boston 2 Celtics @ Indiana Pacers 0
Prediction + 203.5
Boston + 3.5
The Pacers have never really got going in this series and have struggled since before the finals began. Expect the series to open up a little and more action on the offensive end.
The Celtics could win this series in a sweep.
Look at the Game Total to go over and the Celtics to cover at the Pacers home court.
Portland Trail Blazers 2 @ Oklahoma City Thunder 0
Prediction – 221.5
Portland + 7.5
Portland has a decent shot to almost take care of the Thunder in Game 3.
The Thunder will not give up so easily and should still win in a narrow contest.
Paul George has a shoulder problem and expect Russell Westbrook to take more control on the offensive end and get to the bucket.
This game should feature a lot of pressure defense and be low scoring. The Under doesn’t look too bad and is rather high for a final. Look at the Under Game Total and Blazers to cover the line even though the Thunder need to win. They just have not been impressive in the finals just yet.
