Philadelphia 76ers at Brooklyn Nets

The 76ers were surprisingly beaten in the opening match of their series with the Nets in Philadelphia, but bounced back to win 145 – 123 on Monday night to level up ahead of two meetings in Brooklyn.

The 76ers will need to win one of these matches and they are no bigger than -150 with the New Jersey sportsbooks to pick up a first victory on Thursday.

That price looks very short though, with the Nets having already managed to put up over 100 points in each of their games with the 76ers in Philadelphia. Home court advantage should see them put up even more and a shoot-out could really go either way.

It’s certainly no more than a coin flip in Brooklyn on Thursday night, which has been proven by all the results between the two this season. It was 2-2 in the regular season, with no team winning more than one in a row. That pattern continued in the PlayOffs, with one win apiece. The head-to-head favors a Nets win now on Thursday and it’s worth taking a Money Line price of +130 with BetStars.

Pick: Nets Money Line @ +130 with BetStars

Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers

The LA Clippers produced the biggest ever comeback in NBA PlayOff history when coming from 31 points down to beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of their series on Monday night. The Clippers were odds of over 100-1 in-play to win the match but put together a huge performance to beat the Warriors 135-131.

The big question now though is how the Warriors bounce back from that shock. The sportsbooks think they’ll come out fighting and have made them -400 favorites for Game 3 on Thursday, with the Spread set at 9 points in favor of Golden State.

This line seems fair, particularly as it is one which the Warriors have covered in three of their last four victories over the Clippers, including on the road. This is one of basketball’s greatest ever teams and champions like Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson won’t enjoy having been embarrassed on Monday night.

They’ll come out fighting and it would be no surprise to see the Warriors put up a Series defining win on Thursday, which would cement their place as favorites to win yet another NBA Championship.

Pick: Warriors -9 @ -102 with SugarHouse
