Bookie vs. Bettor - 76ers vs. Celtics Game 1 2018 NBA Playoffs

Action should be brisk on this NBA Playoffs Game 1 between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics.

With Boston suffering from the injury bug, Philadelphia was coming in as the -3.5 road favorite here.

The NBA Betting Power Ratings do indicate that it is Boston that should be at -2.5.  By now, the injuries should be reflected in the Power Ratings, so there is definitely an overlay here.

Boston has also won eight of the last ten in this series.

This one could go either way, however, as action was lopsided on either the 76ers or Celtics depending on the book.  For example, some of the more recreational sportsbooks were showing more action on Boston.  The sharper books were seeing more action on Philadelphia.

The line movement has been -2.5 to as high as -4 and it appears, once on the 4, the Celtics were seeing more action.  That is a bit of a hint that books fear a 76ers cover.

We will avoid a play on this game today.

Action and line movement is difficult to read once again in this Game 4 of the Playoffs series between Houston and Golden State. 

Rockets Embarrassed Can they make it A Series?

James Harden is clearly the NBA regular season MVP but not in game three of the Western Conference Finals, nowhere near it with a paltry 20 points. Not all of the blame rests on Harden, he was not alone in the underachieving bandwagon. Ariza had 6, Tucker 6, Capela 13, and Paul 13.

It's amazing how we are having such a tough time finding agreement between some of the sharper books and the more recreational outs when it comes to the NBA.  This has prevented us from making many picks during the later stages of the Playoffs and today appears to be no exception.
