Toronto play’s the (47-30) Cleveland Cavaliers of the Eastern Conference Central. Tip-off is 7:05 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday, April 3, 2018.

The teams will play at Quicken Loans Arena “aka” THE Q in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.

Local Television networks will broadcast the game.

After being the number-one seed in the East the past three season’s, Cleveland is now behind Boston, and Toronto in the standings.

However Cleveland still has LeBron James and nothing less than an NBA title is acceptable from fans.

Maple Leaf Square will be rocking for the beginning of the 2018 Playoffs with expectations at an all-time high.

Management understands what’s at stake for the franchise. The opening betting line has

Cleveland as a one-point home underdog against the spread. The betting odds total is 225 and a half points for Tuesday’s game.

 

The 2018 Toronto Raptors are on top in the Atlantic division with a slim two-game lead over Boston.

Head Coach Dwane Casey is in his seventh season on the bench, and the team keeps getting better.

Toronto has a winning record both at home and on the road but none of this matters if the team doesn’t advance to the NBA Finals.

Five of the last six games between Toronto and Cleveland has gone over the betting odds total; you can bet ATS players will be all on the over.

Toronto has dropped their last eight to the Las Vegas number which means they have a full line on the basketball court.

The Raptors are also in the top ten league-wide both scoring the ball and on defense.

All-Star Guard DeMar DeRozan leads the team in scoring at nearly fourteen-points per game.

The key to a Raptors victory is to clamp down defensively; they know it will get them to the NBA Finals.

Bovada.Lv, list the Toronto Raptors at +170 to win the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Championship.

 

The Cleveland Cavaliers topsy-turvy season continues. Cleveland has won seven of their last eight basketball games both straight up, and to the Las Vegas Number, the betting odds under the total has come in their previous four.

Cleveland is 1-1 vs. Toronto this season and will probably face them again in the postseason without the home court advantage which could loom large.

Head Coach Tyronn Lue is still on medical leave, and the team could drop as low as the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Cleveland has a slim lead over Indiana and Philadelphia for the top three seeds.

Rodney Hood, Larry Nance Jr, and veteran George Hill are doing an efficient job since coming to the “CAVS” in a trade.

However, the play of Jose Calderon is going to be critical if the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to get back to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Cleveland Cavaliers at +600 to win the NBA Title.

Free 2018 NBA Expert Betting Picks, News, and Odds: Portland Trailblazer’s at Utah Jazz.

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

NBA Predictions are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The (32-26) Portland Trailblazers of the Western Conference Northwest division are in the “BEEHIVE STATE” for a divisional matchup.

Portland takes on the (30-28) Utah Jazz also of the Western Conference Northwest. Tip-off is 9:05 PM EST. The game is on Friday, February 23, 2018.

The teams will play at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in scenic Salt Lake City, Utah. The Local Television network will broadcast the game.

The Portland Trailblazer franchise is one of the most consistent in the NBA landscape but when will they become true playoff competitors in the Western Conference?

Utah is playing much better than experts thought after the defection of Gordon Hayward to Baston is the offseason.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell is turning heads around the league and won the “SLAM DUNK” contest at All-Star weekend.

The Opening Betting line has the Portland Trailblazers as a four-point road underdog against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 206 and a half points for Friday’s contest.

 

The 2018 Portland Trailblazer’s are forth in the tight Northwest division, two and a half games behind first-place Minnesota.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season both straight up and against the point spread.

Head Coach Terry Stotts is in his sixth season on the bench in “RIP CITY” and is doing an adequate job. However, the franchise understands point guard Damian Lillard wants a chance to win an NBA title. The Oakland, California native is the team’s best player and leading scorer.

Backcourt mate C.J. McCollum is second with a little over twenty-one points per game. The dynamic duo is one of the best young tandems of guards in the league.

Offensively the Trailblazers are a middle of the pack team, and they could be more aggressive on defense which Stotts preaches daily.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season and needs a dominating performance again from Lillard and McCollum to get a victory.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Portland Trailblazer’s at +1,800 to win the Northwest Division Title.

 

The Utah Jazz is last in the Northwest, just four and a half games out of first place. Utah has a losing record against division opponents.

However, they could be playing in the most competitive divisions in the NBA. Minnesota, Oklahoma City, and Denver are in the top three slots.

Utah is one of the hottest teams in the “ASSOCIATION” with a ten game winning streak and are 7-3 ATS in the span.

Head Coach Quin Snyder and Executive Dennis Lindsey should be in consideration for coach and general manager of the year.

As usual, the Utah Jazz is at the top of the league in points allowed by the opposition per game; they rank fourth.

Rookie Guard Donovan Mitchell is the team’s best player. Power Forward Derrick Favors is still in a Jazz uniform after many experts thought he would get traded before the deadline.

The key to a Jazz win is to perform well at what they do best, and that plays tight defense.

Bovada.Lv has the Utah Jazz at 8,000 to win 2017-18 Western Conference Championship.

Minnesota is also 4-1 to the Las Vegas number their last five betting predictions.

The Timberwolves are on top in the Western Conference Northwest, division three games in front of second place Oklahoma City.

Minnesota is reaping the rewards from the Jimmy Butler trade and head coach and executive Tom Thibodeau understand what it takes to execute at an elite level.

Defense is the recipe for success for the young Minnesota Timberwolves. Center Karl-Anthony Towns, swingman Andrew Wiggins, and Butler average nearly half of the team’s points on a nightly basis.

As we get into the second half of the NBA season look for the Timberwolves to tighten up even more at the defensive end of the basketball court, they currently rank fifteen overall.

Point Guard Jeff Teague is underrated and could be the key to how far the Timberwolves can go in the playoffs.

Fans in the “BUCKEYE STATE” want a second NBA championship and they understand it’s going to take a maximum effort from each member of the team for that to happen.

Head coach Tyronn Lue must take control; there is the illusion that James makes all of the decisions on the basketball court.

The Cleveland Cavaliers rank near the bottom of the league statistically on defense, and it must improve.

LeBron James is still the best player in the world, but the gap is closing. Cleveland must find a combination that everyone is comfortable with if they are to get to their fourth consecutive NBA Finals.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Cleveland Cavaliers Over/Under win total at fifty-three and a half games.

The organization has the former NBA standout Magic Johnson as the General Manager, and rumors are he’s courting LeBron James.

Los Angeles can put points on the scoreboard, but the defense ranks near the bottom of the league.

Second overall draft pick Lonzo Ball is receiving his share of criticism for deficient shooting and below average defense.

Rookie Kyle Kuzma is the team’s leading scorer and is playing like a seasoned veteran.

The Lakers will be looking for revenge but it’s a long season, and the staff must keep them playing fundamentally sound basketball at both ends of the floor.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday, November 28, 2017.

The teams will play at Amway Center in sunny downtown Orlando, Florida. Local Television networks will broadcast the game.

Oklahoma City General Manager Sam Presti did a great job in the offseason attracting a few high profile players. However, the move is not paying dividends yet as the Thunder are struggling. Orlando has plenty of young players but needs a few veterans to show players how to be professionals.

The Opening Betting line has the Oklahoma City Thunder as a five and a half point road favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is 212 and a half points for Wednesday’s contest.

 

The 2017-18 Oklahoma City Thunder have lost four of their last five both straight up and against the spread.

Oklahoma City’s “BIG THREE” of Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and, Paul George are not meshing through the first six weeks of the season.

Head Coach Billy Donovan understand the “X and O’s” of basketball better than most. However, he must be pe patient.

The one thing that is positive is the defensive effort of his team; they rank second in the National Basketball Association allowing opponents just 98.1 points per game. The former University of Florida coach is preaching offense will come through great defense and players are listening.

Westbrook, George, and Anthony are scoring a little over sixty points per contest.

Center Steven Adams is progressing in the post and could be the team’s most important player.

Despite the slow start fans are not in panic mode.

The key to a Thunder win is to continue to focus on defense; they will get enticed to run against Orlando, it could be a trap.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Oklahoma City total wins at fifty for the regular season.

 

The Orlando Magic are on a nine-game skid after starting the season 6-2. Orlando’s last loss came on the road against the Indiana Pacers in a high scoring affair.

The Magic are 4-1 to the number their previous five against Oklahoma City. Orlando is still just four games behind Miami and Washington in the Southeast division standings.

Head Coach Frank Vogel knows he has a young team with plenty of talent that needs to learn how to play efficiently on the defensive end of the basketball court.

Third Year Point Guard Elfrid Payton is a proven commodity playing defense but struggles on offense. The former Louisiana Lafayette standout is one of the favorites of the coaching staff.

Guard Evan Fournier and high flying Forward Aaron Gordon are the team’s leading scorers.

Rookie Jonathan Isaac is raw and must continue to learn how to play a the NBA level. Orlando is competitive at home and must play to the crowd to pull the upset.

Game-2 NBA Playoff Eastern Conference Finals Picks, and Odds For Friday. May 19, 2017: Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Al Presto. 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.

Tip-off is 8:30 PM EST on the TNT Television Network. The game is on Wednesday. May 17, 2017.

The teams will play at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

The best sports handicapper believes the Cleveland Cavaliers “FLEXED THEIR MUSCLE” in game one of the series. Cleveland has yet to lose in the 2017 NBA postseason and are on course to face Golden State in the NBA Finals.

Boston must regroup after being dominated in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals. The could not match the energy of Cleveland at either end of the floor in Wednesday’s loss.

The 2017 Cleveland Cavaliers never trailed in their 117-104 road win in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Cleveland took a twenty-two point lead into the half, before calling off the dogs in the second half.

Forwards LeBron James and Kevin Love combined for seventy of the team’s 117-points. Cleveland is a covering machine and friendly to Point Spread Bettors going 6-2-1 nine games in the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

Center Tristan Thompson also put his stamp on the match with twenty points, and as usual, the team fed off of his energy.

Head Coach Tyronn Lue must keep his team in focus and not become lethargic in game two of the series.

The key to a Cavaliers victory in game two play with the same kind of intensity on both offense and defense.

The team is so talented they have a tendency to lose focus and play down to the competition.

Bovada.Lv lists the Cleveland Cavaliers at -550 to represent the Eastern Conference in the 2017 NBA Finals.

 

The Boston Celtics seemed out of rhythm in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals in front of the home crowd.

Boston did not have any energy and looked flat in the first game of the series.

All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas had trouble with the length of Cleveland at both ends of the court.

Boston shot poorly from the three-point line in the first half and had trouble rebounding on offense and defense.

Head Coach Brad Stevens and his staff must devise a scheme to combat the multi-talented Cavaliers.

Kelly Olynyk, who came off of the bench to become the hero in game seven against Washington had little success against Cleveland.

Seldom used Gerald Green will probably get more playing time the remainder of the series, he has intangibles to at least compete.

Free 2017 NBA Picks and, Odds: Oklahoma City Thunder at Minnesota Timberwolves.

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

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

The (46-34) Oklahoma City Thunder of the Western Conference Northwest Division are in the “TWIN CITIES” for a Divisional matchup. Oklahoma City takes on the (31-49) Minnesota Timberwolves also of the Western Conference Northwest.

Tip-off is 8:00 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday. April 11, 2017. The teams will play at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The best Sports Handicapper believes the Oklahoma City Thunder will probably play reserve as they will rest starters for the postseason.

Oklahoma City finished second in the Division and will get a six-seed. The Minnesota Timberwolves are knocking on the door with a young lineup.

The organization must hit a homerun in the 2017 NBA draft and lure a quality free agent in the offseason.

The Opening Betting Line has the Oklahoma City Thunder as a Two-Point Road Underdog Against The Point Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 216 Points for Tuesday’s contest.

 

The Oklahoma City Thunder are 3-1 both straight up and against the number their last four basketball contests.

Oklahoma City will finish second in the Northwest division, and there is little hope for them to go far in the 2017 playoffs.

The loss of Kevin Durant is starting to rear it’s ugly head and will show even more in the postseason. The Thunder will face the Houston Rockets in the first round; it could be a favorable matchup for Oklahoma City.

Head Coach Billy Donovan must rest starter and begin to prepare for the Rockets.

All-Everything guard Russell Westbrook will probably be named the league Most Valuable Player.

The Former UCLA Bruins alumni give 100% each and every night.

The key to an Oklahoma City victory on Tuesday is to play their style of basketball and focus on defense.

Bovada.Lv lists the Oklahoma City Thunder at +50,000 to win the 2017 Western Conference Crown.

The 2017 Minnesota Timberwolves are on a four-game losing streak and are 1-2-1 Against The Point Spread in the span.

Owner Glen Taylor can’t seem to find the right combination of personnel to get the franchise over the hump.

At the conclusion of last season, the team hired former Chicago head coach Tom Thibodeau to run the show.

However it’s still the same story, the Timberwolves will again finish last in the division.

If there is a silver lining in the equation in Minnesota is the talent is very young. Stars Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, and Karl-Anthony Towns are just 12-years of age.

It is up to Taylor and Tom Thibodeau to keep the trio in a Timberwolves uniform. Point Guard Ricky Rubio could get shopped in the offseason.

The key to a Minnesota victory is to play with enthusiasm in front of the home crowd, give them hope for next season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are out of playoff contention.
