With New York, Cleveland and Phoenix looking towards the franchise altering consequences of the NBA lottery we thought we would do the crazy thing and focus on the other most exciting thing to happen in May in the NBA, the Playoffs.
Toronto and Philly are locked at 2-2 with game 5 in Toronto and if required Game 7 as well. If you think the 76ers can get 2 of the next 3 games then the +650 on them to win the East has got to be attractive. With the Celtics trailing by 2-1 with the next game at home the market isn’t giving them much of a chance of an upset in the series despite being -120 for Game 4. If they do win game 4 then the series will become more tense and the +1300 on the Celtics to win the East will shrink. Now is the time to take a position and Game 4 can be a bit of a free roll. Game 4 is do or die for the Celtics but if you like the Bucks then value is on your side (+102 at a point in the series where the Bucks may have them worked out is value).
I am happy to be with Embid and the 76ers to get over the Raptors. Simmons will need to do more to reduce Kawhi’s influence and if Embid is healthy I think the 76ers can win game 5 and 6 and from there I think they can get over the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
