We have the two games today and both are tipped to go the distance in each series.
Here are some NBA Playoffs Picks for April 29th, 2019
Philadelphia 76ers @ Toronto Raptors
Prediction – Game Total Over 221.5
Philadelphia + 6.5
The 76ers were poor in Game One and had no answer for Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors.
Both these sides have a combined average of 222 in their last 5 matchups.
This game should be high scoring and it needs to be fast paced if the 76ers are any chance of upsetting the Raptors.
The Sixers played a fast-paced brand against the Nets and started scoring. This helped them dominate the series and expect similar tactics for Game 2. They cover the spread at 62.5% after a loss and will be very keen to square up the series and send it to Philly.
Portland Trail Blazers @ Denver Nuggets
Prediction – Game Total Under 216.5
Portland + 4.5
The Nuggets are very good at home but will be tired after that seven-game series against the Spurs.
The Game Total normally goes pretty low when the Nuggets have a home encounter and expect much the same here. Both sides have averaged 217 in their last 5 head to head matchups.
The Nuggets cover the spread at 43% when they only have the one day off and the Blazers are playing very good basketball. Damian Lillard will be tough to stop and will probably score close to 30 points.
Expect this game to be low scoring and the Portland Trail Blazers to be right in it with a couple of minutes left. The Under and the Blazers with the points is not a bad option.
