Bet NBA Playoffs

The NBA playoffs have already been explosive. It’s been an epic journey. It’s almost hard to believe we’re just early in the second round. The games have been mostly good, there’s going to be a new champion – just about anything can happen. Of course, if you have a strong feeling about what’s going to happen, you can bet NBA playoffs game by game right here at BetNow. You can bet on each game, each series, or even on each quarter, each half, and more. We have all of the different ways that you want to bet on NBA Playoffs games at BetNow. 

Bet NBA Playoffs Hawks vs. Sixers Game 2 

How do you feel about a game where one team had a furious comeback in the previous game but didn’t come back enough to win? There’s multiple schools of thought about this exact scenario. Do you believe that the team that got out to the big lead simply “took their foot off the gas?” Then, the reasoning follows, when they’re completely committed again (in the next game) that initial lead will show just who the best team is (regardless of what happened in the second half). 

The other school of thought is that the team that had the big comeback, even if it wasn’t enough to win the first game, will come out with all of the momentum in the second game. The idea is that they weren’t “awake” (or whatever phrase you would prefer to use) in the first half but the second half, even though it proved too big a hole, is a true presentation of the talent in the series. 

These are great questions in the context of the Hawks vs. the Sixers. The Sixers lost game 1. It looked like they were going to get blown out. After all, the Hawks took a 20 point lead at the half. But, in the second half, the Hawks were outscored 70-54. So, how do you see game 2 going? The Sixers have to be feeling the pressure. Going down two games to none and heading to Atlanta will be tough indeed. What do you think? 

Clippers vs. Jazz 

For just about every series in the NBA playoffs, we think “this is going to be a good series.” But, even with that caveat… this is going to be a good series. The Jazz and Clippers could very well be a Western Conference Final with all of the talent on the floor. Both come into this with the “proverbial chip on their shoulder.” In the Bubble, the Jazz went out in the first round while the Clippers went out in the second. That’s a tough burden to bear for teams that feel they have real championship aspirations. 

One thing that both of these teams share – they can shoot from deep. These two clubs are absolutely lights out from beyond the arc, as they’re two of the best three point shooting teams in the league, bar none. The Jazz may attempt more threes, but both teams shoot plenty of them. 

Our handicappers see the Jazz as having a bit of a home court advantage. WE’ve got them as a three and a half point favorite at home. Of course, again, with one of the league’s best three point shooting teams, “three and a half points” is not exactly the biggest deficit to make up. We also see this as a high scoring series, with a 220.5 point over/under. What do you see going on in this series? Does the Jazz shoot the lights out of the Clippers? Or vice versa? Regardless of what happens, you’ll be able to bet all of NBA games throughout the playoffs at BetNow.
