NBA Playoffs Betting Tips: Tuesday, 1st of June

Philadelphia 76ers at Washington Wizards

Capital One Arena, 9am AEST

Washington will be hoping to extend this first round matchup with Philadelphia to at least five games as they come into Game 4 trailing 3-0. The Wizards first of two home games was an embarrassing one for them, with the 76ers winning all four quarters to come away with a 29-point wire-to-wire win.

The 76ers must be feeling really good about themselves coming into this Game 4 on the road after putting up 132 points in their first game in Washington. The Wizards simply had no answer for Joel Embiid who had 36 points on just 18 shots in 28 minutes. Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook put up another triple-double for the Wizards and Bradley Beal scored 25 points despite struggling from the field.

We predicted a series sweep for the 76ers before Game 1 and with what’s transpired over three games now, we certainly aren’t changing our prediction. The 76ers are far, far better team in this matchup, particularly on the defensive end, and should be winning this by double-digits once again.

With this most likely being their last game of the season if everything goes to script, we expect Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook to go down swinging by taking a ton of shots in big minutes. Beal has scored 33 points twice from three games in this series and will certainly have the shot attempts to reach that number again on Tuesday.

Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzles

FedExForum, 11:30am AEST

Memphis put in another admirable performance against Utah in Game 3 and threatened regain the series lead when they led late in the fourth quarter; however, Jazz’s defence rose to another level down the stretch to allow them to go on a row and finish the game strongly. The Jazz now lead the series 2-1 and will head back to Utah after this Game 4 on Tuesday.

Even if the Grizzlies were to end up losing this series 4-1 against the #1 seeded Jazz, there would still be plenty of positive to takes out of it. Dillon Brooks has been sensational on both end of the floor in all three games to date, as has Ja Morant who continues to attack Rudy Gobert in the paint. For the Jazz, they’ll be looking for more production from Bojan Bogdanovic who has struggled to get involved being the third option again on offense.

For the first time this series, the young and inexperienced Grizzlies looked gassed out on the court down the stretch in Game 3. They’ve had an incredibly tough schedule over the past couple of weeks and we think it’s just starting to catch up with them, which leaves the door wide open for the Jazz to go up 3-1 in the series. We have the #1 seeds getting the job done on the road and covering the spread in the process.

Mike Conley might have a soft spot for the Grizzlies after spending the bulk of his career suiting up for them, but he certainly hasn’t shown them any love through the first three games of this series as he’s been absolutely killing them. Conley has scored 20+ points in all three games including 27 points last time out on 7-10 shooting from deep. The odds on him continuing his streak of 20+ points look too good to pass up here.

Utah Jazz -5.5

Prop: Conley 20+ Points ($2.40)
