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.
