NBA 2021 Betting on Must-Win Games

NBA 2021 Betting

NBA 2021 betting: Four days. That’s what we’ve got left in the NBA regular season. May 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th – that’s it, that’s all there is. The NBA regular season will then be over. So, if you’re going to make a move, this is the time to make it. There’s no tomorrow. No, literally, there is no tomorrow if you’re too far out. In fact, for many of these teams in the “must-win” games, it’s already too late in all likelihood. But, as with all of the other games that you could want to bet on, you never know what’s going to happen. That’s just part of what’s so great about NBA betting at BetNow. 

NBA 2021 Betting Must Win Games 

It might be too late for the Spurs. They might not make it this year. Three and a half games out with five days left might be too much. But, if they go on a run, things go their way… you never know. However, for that to happen, it’s got to kick in tonight. That’s when they play Brooklyn. Brooklyn, of course, is not worried about getting into the playoffs – they’ve already clinched. But, they could still be playing hard – they’re only a couple games back of the Sixers for the top spot in the East. If there’s a last stand for the Spurs, it has to be tonight. 

If the season ended today, the Celtics would be in the playoffs. Good for them that the season is quite close to ending “today.” But, it’s not over yet. They’re still only up by two games on the Hornets and Pacers. That said, the Celtics have a chance to move forward today as they’re playing Cleveland, a team that is not in position to make the playoffs this year. But, the Cavs are professionals, too. They have pride. They’re going to play this one tough. Who do you got? 

Games Out West 

In the west, there are plenty of games for teams that still have a chance to get into the playoffs as well as those trying to hang onto their positions. For example, the Mavs. As of now, they’re in. They’re up 3.5 games with five days to go – a good position to be in. But, they haven’t clinched yet. Until that happens, you never really know. They’re playing the Pelicans – a young and hungry team that, while they aren’t going to the 2021 playoffs this year, very well could be in the years to come. Who do you have winning this one? 

Then, we come to the Lakers. It’s hard to believe that the champs might not make the playoffs. But, they’re only two and a half games above falling out of the playoff pictures. Are the Lakers going to make the playoffs? Probably. Most likely. But, between all of the injuries and everything that they’ve had to deal with all year long, it’s not guaranteed. They get the Rockets today, a team that’s certainly struggled throughout the season. But, as with all of the games, they don’t play them on paper. The Lakers, to put themselves in the best position, should win this one. 

The Playoffs Are Almost Here
