2017 NBA Finals Expert Betting Picks, and Odds: King James Enjoying Jordan Comparison.

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

NBA Predictions are winning at a winning rate and will continue through the 2017 NBA Finals Game in June. Thursday. June 1st, 2017 is a day Basketball Fans around the globe have circled.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin their quest for a repeat vs. The Golden State Warriors.

Both teams ran through the 2017 NBA Postseason with ease and will face off in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive season.

No player in recent history has the pressure of expectations as Cleveland Forward LeBron James.

It was just about eight years ago when the “KING” made his infamous decision to join the Miami Heat; The results were astounding as the Head won two NBA titles in four seasons.

However James left a bad taste in the mouth of fans in the nation, and nowhere was he more hated than Northeast Ohio. James, a native of Akron, Ohio was supposed to be the savior of the franchise.

He still holds the title; he just took a detour to come back to the “BUCKEYE STATE” and deliver.

James is now playing in his seventh consecutive NBA Finals, and there is a lot on the line.

 

In 2016 The City of Cleveland got their long awaited professional sports Championship as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.

Fans were seen dancing in the streets of Cleveland, and the Indians of Major League Baseball almost gave the city another Championship but fell short.

James is finally living up to the lofty expectations surrounding him as a high schooler at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s in Akron.

As a member of the Miami Heat James won but felt out of place. The kid is loyal to Northeast Ohio, and this sports handicapper knew he was going back to the place he loved so much.

LeBron James is a once in a lifetime player, who has the physical stature of a Superhero and the ball skills of a point guard.

None of it will matter if the Cavaliers don’t repeat as NBA Champions.

The best player in the world can silence all of the critics and will own the City of Cleveland aka “THE MISTAKE BY THE LAKE.”

James and the Cavaliers will travel to the Bay Area where the Golden State Warriors will be waiting with another weapon in their arsenal.

The Golden State Warriors added star Kevin Durant to the roster, and it showed how good of a move it was in the playoffs.

The Warriors got a scare from the San Antonio Spurs, but the loss of Kawhi Leonard for the Spurs made it almost impossible to pull off the upset.

Another twist to the 2017 NBA Finals is that former Cleveland coach Mike Brown will be on the bench substituting for Steve Kerr.

What team has the advantage is still up in the air, Brown who once understood how to contain James but the King has grown mentally.

Durant, known as a selfish player must be how poise and get teammates involved.

There is also a lot on the line for the former Oklahoma City Thunder star.

Bovada.Lv has Golden State at -275 to win the 2017 NBA Finals.

The best sports handicapper believes the Boston Celtics may have found a formula to compete with the talent-laden Cavaliers.

Boston beat the Cavaliers Sunday in game three, and there is hope for Celtic fans.

The Game three loss was the best thing that could have happened to the Cavaliers. The team almost looked lethargic and disengaged Sunday Night in front of the home fans.

The Opening Betting line has Cleveland as a Fourteen And A Half Point Home Favorite Against The Point Spread.

The Betting Odds Total is 215 Points for Tuesday’s Eastern Conference Finals Playoff Game 4 contest.

The Boston Celtics got a last second three point shot by Avery Bradley to get the victory in game three.

As usual, Boston trailed by double digits at halftime but came out and outscored Cleveland by nineteen-points in the second half.

Guard Marcus Smart who got the start for the injured Isaiah Thomas scored team-high twenty-seven points.

The Oklahoma State alumni went seven of ten from the three point line. Head Coach Brad Stevens understands his team is in a huge hole and must take everything minute by minute.

The Best NBA Playoff Western Conference Finals Picks, and Odds: San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors.

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

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

The (69-26) and Two Seed San Antonio Spurs of the Western Conference Southwest Division will stay in the “BAY AREA” for game 2 of their best of seven Western Conference Finals Playoff matchup.

The game is on Tuesday. May 16, 2017. The teams will play at Oracle Arena next to the Coliseum in Oakland, California.

The best sports handicapper believes the San Antonio Spurs let an opportunity go by in game one.

The coaching staff must do extra duty getting the team emotionally ready for Tuesday’s game.

The Golden State Warriors dodged a bullet in the first of the best of seven series. Talent made the difference with the Big Three getting it done down the stretch.

The Opening Betting line has Golden State as a Thirteen Point Home Favorite Against The Point Spread.

The Betting Odds Total is 209 Points for Tuesday’s Western Conference Finals Playoff Game 2 contest.

 

The San Antonio Spurs got to the Western Conference Finals by taking care of Houston in six games.

Head Coach Gregg Popovich and his staff must feel sick to their stomachs after letting a twenty-point halftime lead slip away in the finals minutes of the match.

Most Valuable Player candidate Kawhi Leonard spent most of the second half on the bench.

That is when the game turned with Golden State exposing the weaknesses of the second-seed San Antonio Spurs.

San Antonio is already short-handed with an injury to point guard Tony Parker, and now with the status of Leonard in question, the staff must get their mental focus in order.

San Antonio seemed to be the more dominant team in the post, and they should slow the game down if they expect to even the series.

Forward LaMarcus Aldridge played up to his capabilities with a twenty-eight point performance. Center Pau Gasol must become more of a factor Tuesday.

Bovada.Lv lists the San Antonio Spurs at +850 to advance to the 2017 NBA Finals.

 

The 2017 Golden State Warriors have now won nine playoff contests in a row.

However, the team looked vulnerable in the come from behind win over San Antonio, especially in the post.

Golden State got seventy-four points from Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. Klay Thompson was not a factor with just six points.

Center Zaza Pachulia and his backup JaVale McGee were less than spectacular, combining for just twelve points.

Reserve David West must also get into the action a little more than he did in game one.

The layoff from the Utah series hurt Draymond Green, who had trouble finding his rhythm.

Head Coach Steve Kerr is still nursing a sore back, and he is not expected to return to the bench.

Mike Brown is taking over the coaching duties and is familiar with San Antonio.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017 Golden State Warriors at -1,700 to advance to the NBA Finals against the Eastern Conference.

Free 2017 NBA Playoff ATS Picks: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers.

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.

Our 500-star Basketball Picks are winning at an unbelievable rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2017.

Starting Point Guard Kyle Lowry is set to return from a wrist injury later this month. The Detroit Pistons are playing for their playoff lives.

The Former University of Kentucky standout has talked players into staying “NORTH OF THE BORDER” instead of leaving, which is helping to build a winning culture.

All-Star DeMar DeRozan is becoming one of the most reliable players in the National Basketball Association.

The Los Angeles native signed a huge contract during his services will stay in Toronto.

The recent acquisition of Serge Ibaka should provide leadership in the postseason. The key to a Toronto victory is to play with a sense of urgency.

Home court advantage in the East is not out of the question.

Bovada.Lv listed the Toronto Raptors at +125 to win the 2017 Eastern Conference Atlantic Division Title.
The 2017 Detroit Pistons have lost six of their last seven, and their playoff chances are fading fast.

Detroit is in the cellar of the standings in the Central Division. However, they are still in postseason contention with the Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets.

Head Coach and General Manager Stan Van Gundy is one of the best “X AND O’S” in the league.

After losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 postseason, expectations were high for Detroit this season. It has not been easy for Van Gundy and the staff.

Point Guard Reggie Jackson missed a lot of the first part of the 2017 season.

Center Andre Drummond is not the same player he was last season.

The key to a Detroit win on Wednesday is to come out and play inspired basketball; there is a lot on the line.

Bovada.Lv, list the Detroit Pistons at +165 to get the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
