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...
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|

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!
