What are you predictions?

EAST
1-Bulls -2500 vs 8- 76ers... I may possibly take the UNDER in every single game... this is gonna be a street fight!.... ya know... it probably will be a lot lower due to Rose's health concerns... but the role players really step up big when they need to.. more so defensively as this D is a bad bunch....

2-Heat -500 vs 7-Knicks... I know, it is def. way too low, but I feel like there is going to be a ton of public support on the Knicks and thus the oddsmakers set up the short line... but I do give the Knicks a legitimate shot given the MVP-like play of Carmelo and the way their 2nd unit has been lighting a fuse under everyone... BUT they are facing another incredible defense w/ the 3 uber-studs... the Knicks are gonna have their moments...feel like it's gonna go 6 or 7

3- Pacers -1500 vs 6-Magic... Dwight-less Magic = trouble... but still could turn into a series if the Magic drain their 3s as the Pacers do have trouble scoring....

4- Celtics -250 vs 5- Hawks... this is gonna be a rough and tumble affair... def checking the UNDER for each game... I feel another 7 gamer...

WEST
1- Spurs -2000 vs 8- Jazz... will lightening strike again!?  I feel the Spurs are the team to beat... they are so deep it is unbelievable... their 2nd team dominates the floor... Parker is a master general, Manu and Duncan know their role... just a machine right now... I'm really rooting for them... got a futures on them to win it all

 #30009 - San Antonio Spurs +500
Sport:Contest Wager
Label:Basketball - NBA Futures - NBA Championship
Info:Odds to win
Header:Odds to win NBA Championship
Ticket #:57602060
Accepted:04/22/12 10:25 AM (EST)
Scheduled :04/22/12 1:05 PM (EST)
Risk:$200.00
Win:$1,000.00
Outcome:Pending
$200.00$1,000.00
2- Thunder -800 vs 7- Maves... probably a little low... actually definitely low....but you gotta give the Maves a puncher's chance.... Dirk is the ultimate weapon...

3- Lakers -300 vs 6-Nuggets... I like the Lakers inside game and defense and how can I forget Kobe... if Nugs can't get going they're in trouble.. but I do see this as a close 6-7 game series as I believe the Nugs will have their moments

4-Grizzlies vs Clippers -150... I feel the oddsmakers make the Clips the fav in this series.. very evenly matched... Paul will most likely be the difference... Grizz do have the experience from last year's run... gonna be a great series...


Welp these are my predictions/handicapping of the 1st round... I love the NBA playoffs....

Any predictions?  Playoff Angles? Futures?  Would love to get this thread going w/ good solid info...

Can't wait for the lines/ series prices to come out...

I lean Pacers -700 or less, anything more is too risky

Lakers -300 or less

Celtics -250 or less

Knicks +anything... this is def a homer play, but I have to especially if I can get +500 or something...

Good Luck everybody!

Guess it's kind of tough to lean 2 series' that I believe will be 7 gamers, huh? lol....

def got to reconsider those...

and it would be nice to know that the Hawks are the #4 seed... ugh...

4- Hawks -250 vs 5- Celtics is my new prediciton... lol

You do realize Bulls have lost 4 of their last 6 to Philly?  Sixers have given Chicago all kinds of trouble over last 2 yrs.  Unlike vs Miami, the Sixers can put a real scare into the Bulls.  Bulls wont be that big a favorites.  Miami wouldve been -3000 vs Sixers.  Chicago probably wont be more than -1000.

Nice info... thanks!

this is my first reaction to the match ups... haven't dug deep jut yet... but I feel the way the 6ers faded very badly to end the season they will be in some trouble vs the Bulls....

Nice write up FG, thanks for getting a thread started. BOL with the Spurs bet, they look really strong this year.

Bulls, Pacers, Spurs and OKC will be favored by less
Boston will be a small favorite over ATL, -150 if I had to guess

Miami will be a little larger than -500 in my opinion.

Spurs - Heat finals Miami in 6

I hope LAL can win a few series this year.

Miami will be closer to -900 in my opinion. Celts don't have home court but I think they will be favored. Mem will be favored over clips.. I like Denver to possibly win that series..

I like thunder -500, I maxed bet it on 5dimes, if Mavs can beat the Thunder then 5dimes can have my money.

Here are my plays:

(BTW: didn't even know you can bet the series w/ games as the spread!)

 #883 - Knicks Series +2½ (+100)$100.00$100.00
 #883 - Knicks Series ML (+600)$50.00$300.00

Total HOMER play on the Knicks!!! 

 #886 - Pacers Series -2½ (-130)$260.00$200.00
 #894 - Hawks Series ML (+160)$50.00$80.00
 #896 - Grizzlies Series ML (-210)$210.00$100.00

LOVE the Pacers to crush off the Magic...

Hawks is more of an "eh" feeling play... they have a nice squad and I like that they have homecourt, obviously it's going to be very tough vs the grizzled Celts... but I'll take a shot @ + odds...

Grizz... love how they ended the season... Clips still need some time before they take it to the next level and win a series... scared that CP3 can takeover.... but honestly i would love to see Clips get to the 2nd round....

GOOD LUCK!!!
