Vegas Picks for NBA Playoffs – 4/13/2019

4* Brooklyn Nets +6 @ Philadelphia 76ers – Whether Embiid plays or not is not is the biggest determinant in this game. The Nets were able to steal 2 games from Philly this season, despite the big man playing in all 4 meetings. Embiid averaged over 30 PPG against the Nets individually, but it was hard for the 76ers to pull away. If Embiid is out, the Nets have a much bigger chance to win this one outright.

4* Los Angeles Clippers @ Golden State Warriors -12.5 – The Clippers have played well to end the season, but they couldn’t hang with the Warriors. Across the board, Golden State is far superior at every position and is more than capable of covering this number.

3* San Antonio Spurs +5.5 @ Denver Nuggets – The Spurs have had some trouble winning games outright in the Mile High City, but they have been golden covering the number there. San Antonio is the much more experienced team and can play a competitive style against the Nuggets. Frustration and nerves could become a factor for the home team, while the Spurs will take the game with easy strides.
