NBA Playoff Bets To Consider

by Rohan LullaApril 12, 2023

The NBA Playoffs are starting this weekend, and oddsmakers have been busy making a variety of lines. There could be plenty of profitable opportunities from a number of player and series props to choose from.

Here is a list of some intriguing Playoff bets to consider:

Kawhi Leonard vs. Kevin Durant-Most Total Points

As the Clippers get ready to face a healthy Suns team, there is a lot of anticipation for the matchup of Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard. Both superstars will look to battle it out in what should be an entertaining series.

Since his return from injury, Durant has looked super efficient and has will with his new team. Kawhi will look to keep pace with Durant and should be able to show why he is one of the greatest defenders in recent years.

Durant should have the edge over Kawhi in overall scoring. Durant has proven that his scoring ability during the playoffs can reach high figures. Durant should be able to beat Kawhi for most points in the first-round matchup.

Suns vs. Clippers-Over 5.5 Games

Continuing on with the Suns vs. Clippers matchup, this won’t be an easy series for the Suns. Although the Suns are favorites to win the West, the Clippers are very capable of making this series go to 6 games.

Expect this series to go to a minimum of 6 games, as the Clippers can steal 2 games within this series and put pressure on the Suns.

Eastern Conference Team To Win NBA Finals

This year I do believe an East team will win the NBA Finals. The East looks stacked, talented, and well-established at the moment. The Celtics or Bucks look most likely to come out of the East. Either team can manage to beat the powerful West teams this year.

Although the Suns look like one of the best teams to win it all, I do believe that they will not be able to manage to beat an East team. It usually takes a superstar an entire offseason to adjust to a new team and roster, but Kevin Durant has not had the amount of time with this team to go the full distance.

Grizzlies To Beat The Lakers

The Lakers are back in the Playoffs after last night’s win against the Timberwolves. Anthony Davis and Lebron will play their first 7 game series since 2021 against a young and hungry Grizzlies team.

The Grizzlies looked great this season, making the 2 Seed. Ja Morant should look to be on the rise and lead his team to success over this Lakers team. Morant finished the season averaging 26.2 points and 8.1 assists. His impressive stat line should see an increase in the coming series.

The Lakers still continue to deal with health issues. Playing a 7 game series with an aging squad will be challenging in the First Round. I do not believe this team is capable of staying healthy and playing at a high level in a series against this Grizzlies team.
