NBA Picks: Conference Quarterfinals Odds For April 17, 2017

NBA Picks: Conference Quarterfinals Odds For April 17, 2017
The first weekend of the NBA playoffs produced some surprising results, including upset wins by Utah, Chicago and Milwaukee. After a hectic start, Easter Monday features a subdued schedule, with a pair of games on tap, beginning at 7 PM EST. Neither matchup should produce an upset, as the Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs are favorites to make it to the finals.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Playoff Odds

Cleveland Cavaliers Regular Season Record: 51-31
Indiana Pacers Regular Season Record: 42-40
Canada Sports Betting Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers (-380) at Bodog

The Cavaliers barely escaped an embarrassing home loss to begin the playoffs on Saturday, allowing the Pacers a chance at the buzzer for the win. Instead of Paul George getting the ball back off a double team, C.J. Miles lifted a jumper, ending Indiana’s best chance at scoring a win in this series.

As usual, it was LeBron James leading the charge with yet another sublime performance, scoring at will and distributing the ball in an effort to get his mates involved in the match. Cleveland needed each one of his 32 points and 13 assists to avoid the upset.

It’s difficult to see another game in which Kyle Korver doesn’t shoot a three and the Cavaliers score only 17 points in the final quarter. Expect a much bigger winning margin for Cleveland this time around.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Playoff Odds

San Antonio Spurs Regular Season Record: 61-21
Memphis Grizzlies Regular Season Record: 43-39
Canada Sports Betting Pick: San Antonio Spurs (-800) at Bodog

Game one between the San Antonio Spurs and the Memphis Grizzlies was over before the third quarter finished, despite the heroic effort of Marc Gasol, who matched Kawhi Leonard’s game-high 32 points. Nobody else on the Grizz stepped up to the plate, leading to a 29-point blowout after 48 minutes.

The vaunted Grindhouse defense suffered without Tony Allen, and the Spurs feasted, shooting 53.2% from the field. Kawhi enjoyed plenty of free buckets, hitting 11 of his 14 shots, including 10 for 12 from mid-range and 9-9 at the free throw line.

Coach Popovich trotted 13 players on court during a time when rotations usually shrink to a tight nine. This is probably the least competitive series in the NBA playoffs, and you should bet on it as such. Even a single victory for Memphis is a huge upset.
