The Scout: NBA Best Bets

Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics (Game 1)

The Heat have been incredible throughout the playoffs highlighted by their dismantling of the Bucks. Goran Dragic has been a big addition to the starting 5 with his playmaking and shooting from three point land.

Bam Adebayo has proven to be a difference maker all season and can be so again here in Game 1. He looms as a mismatch for Boston who aren’t highly equipped at centre. Jaylen Brown will likely get minutes on Bam, which should put things in favour of the Heat.

This Miami team are playing fearless basketball and have all the weapons to make it to the Finals. I think Game 1 is there’s for the taking.

Suggested Bet: Miami Heat (Head to Head) @ $2.08*

Denver Nuggets vs LA Clippers (Game 7)

Nikola Jokic has dominated the Clippers so far this series and all the momentum is with the Nuggets. The creative big man has done as he pleases, scoring in the paint, bombing three pointers, and finding teammates with exceptional passes.

The Nuggets will no doubt come out firing here, riding the wave of momentum they’ve created over the last two games.

Like so many NBA games I see this one going down to the wire. If and when this game gets there, there’s no better person to have on the floor than Kawhi Leonard.

It’s long seemed destined that we were headed for an all-LA Western Conference Finals. I think that’s still on the cards and the Clippers do what needs to be done here.

Suggested Bet: Denver / LA (Half/Full Time DBL) @ 5.50*
