Basketball ATS Picks are the best in the business. They will win at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June.

The (56-32) Philadelphia 76ers are in the Bay State for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals to face Atlantic Division rivals, the 60-30 Boston Celtics. Tip-off is at the TD Garden in balmy downtown Boston at 8:05 PM EST Thursday on TNT.

The 76ers are 20-2 their last 22 games dating back to the regular season’s conclusion. Philly took care of Miami in five games but the long layoff showed their rust in game-one of this series.

Boston has the best basketball mind as their coach. Brad Stevens has the Celtics believing they can compete with any team, despite their two best players on the sidelines with injuries.

The opening betting line has the Boston Celtics as a four-point home underdog against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 206 points for Thursday’s contest.

Philadelphia couldn’t make three-point shots in the series opener which ultimately cost them.

Head Coach Brett Brown took the blame for the game-one defeat and will make adjustments Thursday. Philadelphia got exposed for their lack of athleticism at the two guard and Forward positions.

Veteran Guard J.J Redick who averages over seventeen points per contest during the regular season had twenty but his inability to guard on the perimeter hurt on defense.

Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid combined for forty-nine points in defeat. The key for Philadelphia to even the series is to play better defense and Brown must insert more athletes in the lineup, reserve guard Jerryd Bayless comes to mind.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Philadelphia 76ers at 2/1 to win the NBA Eastern Conference Championship.

The Boston Celtics got spectacular performances from point guard Terry Rozier and rookie standout Jayson Tatum in their game-one victory in front of the home crowd.

Head Coach Brad Stevens did a masterful job on the bench exposing the 76ers youth and inexperience.

The former Butler University coach who made history taking the Mid Major Bulldogs to back to back Final Fours appearances is making believers out of the faithful in Beantown

Losing Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving will eventually come back to haunt the two seen in the East, but Stevens has the team staying in the moment.

Forward Jaylen Brown also missed the first game with a hamstring injury but expects to play Thursday night.

Boston must continue to expose Philadelphia’s slower players and close out on their three-point shooters. Simmons and Embiid will get their number, but the rest must be contained.

Bovada.Lv has the Boston Celtics at 60/1 to win 2018 NBA Championship.

Portland is equally as hot as we come down the stretch of the 2018 NBA regular season. Portland has plenty of young talent, and the future is bright in “RIP CITY.”

The opening betting line has Houston as a four and a half-point road favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is 214′ points for Tuesday’s game.

 

The Houston Rockets are on a five-game winning streak after consecutive road victories at New Orleans and Minnesota.

The Rockets are 6-4 to the Las Vegas number their last ten basketball games, going over the betting odds total just three times in the ten game span.

Not only do the Houston Rockets have the best record in the NBA they are 29-8 on the road which is also the best in the “ASSOCIATION.”

Head Coach Mike D’Antoni had the luxury of watching his brother coach the Marshall Thundering Herd to a first-round win in the 2018 NCAA March Madness Men’s Basketball Tournament.

It’s a good time for the D’Antoni family. However, the Herd lost in the second round to the University of West Virginia.

General Manager Daryl Morey deserves a lot of credit for putting the pieces together to make an NBA Title run.

All-Star James Harden is the team’s leading scorer with Chris Paul and Eric Gordon also contributing.

The Rockets understand playing tight defense will get them where they want to go.

Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Rockets at +175 to win the 2018 NBA Western Conference Crown.

Portland will host the Boston Celtics on March 23rd before a crucial road game at Oklahoma City.

The dynamic backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum is one of the most productive in the league.

The game is on Thursday, March 14, 2018. The teams will play at Taco Bell Arena on the campus of Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. The CBS Television network will broadcast the game.

The Buffalo Bulls are a high scoring offense and hasone of the brightest young minds in College Basketball leading them. Buffalo won the 2018 MAC regular season and Tournament to get the automatic bid.

Arizona, on the other hand, has some issues off of the court coming into the first round as the program is under a microscope. However, the team remains in focus to advance.

The opening betting line has Buffalo as an eight and a half-point underdog against the spread on a neutral court. The betting odds total is 159′ points for Thursday’s game.

 

The 2018 Buffalo Bulls enter the NCAA Tournament on a six-game winning streak. Buffalo beat Toledo to capture the Mid American Conference Tournament title.

A lot of the credit to success in Western New York belongs to forty-three-year-old head coach Nate Oates who will probably get an offer at a power conference school in the next few years.

The Bulls love to play at a fast pace and will launch the three-point shot with regularity.

Junior Guard C.J. Massenburg and two-time conference sixth man of the year Nick Perkins are two players fans should keep an eye on Thursday Night.

Junior College transfer Jeremy Harris is third on the team in scoring with a little over fifteen points per game.

The “EMPIRE STATE” will have three institutes playing on Thursday with Iona, and St.Bonaventure also taking the floor at various venues.

Buffalo has all of the tools to pull of an epic upset with all of the confusion going on at the University of Arizona.

Seattle, Washington native Allonzo Trier, has fans in the “GRAND CANYON STATE” believing in karma as nearly a few decades ago Jason Terry who is another of the “PACIFIC NORTHWEST” helped the Wildcats cut down the nets.

Head Coach Sean Miller understands what is going on internally with the program and insists his innocence.

In the meantime, the University of Arizona will focus on advancing past the first round.

Ayton should have his way with a Buffalo defense that is less the spectacular, but one the Bulls start making baskets from the perimeter it could cause problems.

The key to a Wildcats victory is to play through their talented freshman.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Arizona Wildcats at +475 to win the March Madness South Region.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

The opening betting line has Marquette as a six-point favorite against the spread on a neutral court. The betting odds total is not available for Wednesday’s game.

 

The DePaul Blue Demons lost five of six to end the 2018 regular season with the lone win coming in the span against Wednesday’s opponent.

His second began in 2015, and this could be his last go around unless his team can make some noise in the annual spectacle.

DePaul University has access to some of the best high school talents in the nation with its location in Chicago, and it’s been nearly three-decade since Ray Meyer was able to land big-time players from the “WINDY CITY.”

Guard Max Strus is the team’s leading scorer with sixteen and a half points per game. The Blue Demons have a few talented players who can put the ball in the bucket.

The key to a DePaul win is to guard the three-point line with authority, Marquette can shoot the long ball with the best in the nation.

Bovada.Lv has the DePaul Blue Demons at +15,000 to win the 2018 College Basketball Big East Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament.

 

The 2018 Marquette Golden Eagles are on the other end of the spectrum winning four of five to end the season, including their regular season finale against Creighton.

Head Coach Steve Wojciechowski is in his fourth season on the bench with one NCAA Tournament showing.

The two teams have met twice this season each winning on their home court.

Wojciechowski is aware of the Blue Demons physical nature and length at virtually every position on the court; he expects a physical contest.

Marquette is a prolific scoring team averaging nearly eighty-two points per game.

The basketball program parted ways with former guard Haanif Cheatham earlier in the season.

However, sharpshooters Markus Howard, Andrew Rowsey, and Sam Hauser can score the basketball with the best players in the College Basketball landscape.

Marquette must push the ball at every chance; they can’t allow DePaul to set their defense.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Marquette Golden Eagles at +2,800 to win the annual Big East Basketball Conference Tournament Crown.
