Boston v Cleveland
On paper, the Celtics should be stronger and win. They have also won 6 straight matches at home against Cleveland.
But if we look at reality, we see that the Cavs have won 6 matches in a row. Including against serious opponents like Chicago and Miami. And just on the road, Bickerstaff’s charges beat the champions.
In addition, Cleveland is currently ranked 3rd in the Eastern Conference, while the Celtics are in 9th place.
I’m not at all sure about the victory of Udoki and his guys. Therefore, you can take a head start. For example, Away (5.5) with a coefficient of 1.95. The guests are on the move, they will not give up this match just like that.
Milwaukee v Houston
The Bucks is storming in the absence of the leader. Already two defeats in a row. In such a situation, betting on W1 with the odds of 1.2 is somehow scary. Even considering that the rivals are Houston. The Rockets are, of course, terrible. But anything can happen.
I will bet that Budenholzer’s players will score less than 116.5 points with an odds of 1.94. Milwaukee have not been able to break this ceiling for 5 games in a row. And now, apart from Giannis, Portis and Divincenzo will not play, Hood is questionable. Total could not be pushed even taking into account 4/5 farthest from Connaughton, 7/12 from Grayson Allen and 40 points from Holiday.
Oklahoma v Denver
Here, too, at first glance, everything is obvious – the guests must win. Denver are in 5th place in the West and have beaten this opponent in their last 4 games out of 5.
However, Oklahoma just beat numbers 4 and 6 of the Western Conference, Memphis and the Clippers. I believe that the owners will show their teeth here too. I’ll bet on H1 (5.5) with odds of 1.99.
