Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NBA Playoff First Round Betting Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2017.

The (53-33) and Number Five Seed Utah Jazz of the Western Conference Northwest Division are in the “CITY OF ANGELS” for game five of their first round (quarterfinals) playoff matchup.

Utah will take on the (53-33) and Four Seed Los Angeles Clippers of the Western Conference Pacific. Tip-off is 10:30 PM EST on the TNT Television Network.

The game is on Tuesday. April 25, 2017. The teams will play at Staple Center in beautiful downtown Los Angeles, California.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Utah Jazz have everything to gain and nothing to lose in the first round matchup.

The stakes are a little higher for the Los Angeles Clippers. It could be the last time fans get to see Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in a Clippers uniform.

The Opening Betting Line has the Utah Jazz as a Four-Point Road Underdog Against The Point Spread.

The Betting Odds Total is 196 And A Half Points for Tuesday’s Western Conference First Round Playoff Game Five contest.

The Utah Jazz came from behind to even the series at 2-2. Utah is also 3-1 Against The Spread in the first four games of the Western Conference Quarterfinals matchup.

Head Coach Quin Snyder and the rest of the staff is doing a masterful job controlling the pace of the first four games.

It’s the first time budding star Gordon Hayward has gotten a taste of the postseason in his young career.

The Former Butler University star and lottery pick scored just three points in the game four win.

Hayward is questionable for game five of the series after dealing with a bout of food poisoning.

Maybe the organization should hire a food taster for the rest of the postseason!

Veteran Joe Johnson led all scorers with twenty-eight points, and reserve Power Forward Derrick Favors came off of the bench to pour in seventeen.

Favors, primarily known as a rebounder “FLEXED HISS MUSCLE” in the post with the absence of Blake Griffin for Los Angeles.

The key to a Jazz victory in game five is to play at a slow pace and keep the crowd quiet.

Bovada.Lv lists the Utah Jazz at +200 to win their first-round series vs. The Los Angeles Clippers.

The 2017 Los Angeles Clippers are one of the most talented teams in the National Basketball Association.

However head coach Doc Rivers is not doing the job management expected when he got hired. “LOB CITY” as the Clippers are known have not gotten to the NBA Finals in the Rivers era.

Despite having one of the best point guards, intimidating post players and a sharp shooter the team has struggled in the postseason.

Paul and reserve Paul scored more than half of the team’s points in the game four loss. Making matter worse the Clippers will be without Blake Griffin for the rest of the series.

Forward Marreese Speights is the “X-FACTOR” the rest of the set with his ability to hit the three-point shot.

The key to a Clippers victory is to play at a fast pace each and every possession; they can’t allow Utah to set their defense nor control the tempo.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017 Los Angeles Clippers at +3,000 to win the 2017 NBA Western Conference Title.

The game is on Thursday. April 20, 2017. The teams will play at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in beautiful Indianapolis, Indiana.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Cleveland Cavaliers must find a way to close out playoff contests.

It seems as though the reigning NBA Champions are coasting through the postseason, it could cost them down the road.

The Indiana Pacers have the talent to take the series to seven games. Game 3 is basically do or die for the Pacers.

The Opening Betting Line has the Indiana Pacers as a Two-Point Home Underdog Against The Point Spread.

The Betting Odds Total is 212 And A Half Points for Thursday’s Eastern Conference First Round Playoff Game Three contest.

 

2017 Cleveland Cavaliers lethargic play in the second half of the NBA regular season is rearing it’s ugly head.

Cleveland has a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series, but it hasn’t been easy. ¬†Cleveland has beaten Indiana five straight times, however the Pacers have covered the last three Against The Spread.

Cleveland led game two of the series by eighteen points going into the fourth quarter and barely held on to get the win. Superstar LeBron James is still the best player on the planet.

The Cavaliers added sharpshooter Kyle Korver and point guard Deron Williams to the roster last in the season, the duo is coming up big in the postseason. Cleveland still depends on James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love for the majority of their offense.

Head Coach Tyronn Lue must warn his team about coasting this time of the year. The key to a Cleveland victory in game three is to play hard the entire contest.

Bovada.Lv lists the Cleveland Cavaliers at +360 to repeat as NBA Champions.

 

The Indiana Pacers lost game one of the series by a point, Forward C.J. Miles missed the game winning shot.

Indiana should feel confident going into the third game of the series and fans will be ready in “NAPTOWN”.

Starting point Guard Jeff Teague is more than capable of holding his won vs. Kyrie irving. The former Atlanta Hawks star scored twenty three points in game two.

Forward Paul George led the Pacers in scoring in defeat with thirty-two points. Indiana is doing a good job rebounding the basketball at both ends of the floor.

Head Coach Nate McMillan must find ways to isolate George for easy buckets.

Lance Stephenson also showed he has the moxy to score east baskets by driving the basketball.

All in all the Indiana Pacers have to feel good about the rest of the series, they had a chance to steal a game in Cleveland.

Their best case scenario is winning game three and four, putting the pressure on Cleveland.

The key to a Pacers victory Thursday is to play inspired ball in front of the home crowd.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017 Indiana Pacers at +1,000 to win their first round NBA Playoff series vs. Cleveland.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have one of the best players in the National Basketball Association.

Triple double machine Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with twenty-two points in their game one loss in “H-TOWN.”

Backcourt mate Victor Oladipo looked like a deer caught in headlights in his first ever postseason contest. The former Orlando Magic player scored just six points.

Head Coach Billy Donovan must put an emphasis on getting the ball into the post in the second game of the series.

Starting Forward Andre Roberson did an adequate job of scoring and defending. Westbrook and Roberson were the only Thunder players to score in double figures in the first contest.

Taj Gibson had plenty of playoff experience but did not show up Sunday Night.

The former Bulls star must take his game to another level if the Thunder are to advance.

The key to an Oklahoma City victory in game two is to play with a sense of urgency and play inside out basketball.

Houston looked like the most impressive of all playoff teams in their game one blowout victory. The key to a Houston victory is to stick to their game plan.

2017 NBA Playoff Picks and, Odds: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Charlie RedMcDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Our 500-star NBA Playoff Point Spread Predictions are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2017.

The game is on Tuesday. April 18, 2017. The teams will play at Staples Center in beautiful Los Angeles, California.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Utah Jazz must use the same formula in game two to take a 2-0 series lead. Utah added some experience in the offseason to upgrade their roster. The Los Angeles Clippers are officially in desperation mode.

Head Coach Quin Snyder understands what is at stake for the franchise and the entire “BEEHIVE STATE.”

The Jazz has been building this team for the past five years.

Drafting player such as All Star Gordon Hayward and signing free agents George Hill, Johnson, and Boris Diaw has also helped bring veteran leadership.

However, the Jazz will be without Center Rudy Gobert, who suffered a knee injury just after the opening tip-off on Saturday.

Derrick Favors is capable of producing in the starting role; the former Georgia Tech scored fifteen points in the game one upset.

Trey Lyles will probably ask to come in and contribute off of the bench.

The key to a Utah victory in game two is to play their style and not get enticed into a fast pace game, which the Clippers want to play.

Bovada.Lv lists the Utah Jazz at 66 to 1 to win their 2017 NBA Playoff opening series.

 

The Los Angeles Clippers outscored Utah in the first and fourth quarter of their game one matchup with Utah.

However, it was not enough as the Clippers lost 97-95 at home to the Utah Jazz.

Forward Blake Griffin and All-Star Guard Chris Paul scored fifty-one of the team’s ninety-five points.

Center DeAndre Jordan was the only other Clippers player to score in double figures. Shooting Guard J.J. Reddick must find a way to shake defenders and score on open shots.

Head Coach Doc Rivers understands what is at stake for the organization.

The usually productive Jamal Crawford must also step up his game, the Clippers must match the Utah intensity on defense.

However, the key to a Clippers victory is game-two of the series is to play at a faster pace.

Utah clearly outplayed the Clippers, Los Angeles must come ready to compete Tuesday.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017 Los Angeles Clippers at 50-1 to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
