Betting preview for Friday's NBA playoff games


Friday is quite the day in the NBA. Two teams have an opportunity to punch their ticket to their respective conference finals, but both are underdogs at home. We also saw Milwaukee force a Game 7 with a dominant win at home over Brooklyn on Thursday night. This postseason is shaping up to be quite dramatic, so let’s not waste any time today and dive right in.

Philadelphia 76ers (-2, 222.5) at Atlanta Hawks

It is hard not to just copy and paste my write-up from two days ago, but the last two games of this series have gone so similarly that the analysis remains almost the same. For the fourth consecutive game, the Philadelphia 76ers built up a monstrous double-digit lead, but for the second time in two games they blew that lead and allowed the Hawks to win. This time, the loss resulted in a 3-2 series deficit for the 76ers and now there is zero room for error.
