NBA Weekend Free Picks For Saturday, April 27

NBA Free PicksThe NBA’s eight first-round playoff series will switch venues this weekend, as lower-seeded teams will try to put higher seeds on their heels. Will the new environments make a difference?

Eastern Conference First Round, Game 4:

Brooklyn Nets @ Chicago Bulls – Saturday, April 27

A prudent betting agent would point out that this series between the fourth-seeded Nets and the fifth-seeded Bulls should go at least six games, if not the full seven. There’s so little separation between these teams that it will be hard to expect either one to go on a two-game winning streak within the course of the series, unless it’s in Game 6 and Game 7 (simply because Game 7 situations are volatile and have a one-shot quality to them). If you do subscribe to that larger line of thought, you will almost certainly conclude that this series will leave Chicago tied at two games apiece.

Therefore, this Saturday’s Game 4 figures to be won by the team that enters the floor trailing 2-1 in the series. The sense here is that Chicago will probably win Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead, which would then mean that Brooklyn is likely to fight back in Game 4 and dig out a triumph on the road. This is an unpredictable series, one of the few first-round battles that fits such a description. The team trailing 2-1 in Game 4 should pull off a victory unless something dramatic and particularly unexpected occurs. Go with the Nets, under the presumption that they’ll be down 2-1 when this game begins.

 

NBA Betting Pick: Brooklyn

Eastern Conference First Round, Game 4:

Indiana Pacers @ Atlanta Hawks – Saturday, April 27

When immersed in the world of live betting, it's always important to separate macro-level assessments from micro-level predictions. The Indiana Pacers should win this series against the Atlanta Hawks, but will the third-seeded Pacers win Game 4 on Saturday night in Georgia? Perhaps not. Indiana, without Danny Granger, lacks its best scorer, a player who can spread the floor and give the Pacers more structure at the offensive end of the floor. This missing piece will make the competition more even, and Atlanta – playing at home – can capitalize on such a reality. The Hawks will probably trail the series when this game begins, but they’ll probably be able to fly back to Indiana for Game 5 on a happy note.

NBA Betting Pick: Atlanta

Western Conference First Round, Game 3:

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Houston Rockets – Saturday, April 27

Bet online reviews will show that the Oklahoma City Thunder are, by far, the better team in this series. In all likelihood, Oklahoma City will lead this series 2-0 when Game 3 begins on Saturday in Houston. However, it's also true that if you visit any premier sports betting outlet for information on this game, you'll be told that the Rockets are a potent offensive team, one that can trade punches with the Thunder. James Harden does not want to be swept by his former team. He almost certainly won’t be able to win the series by himself, but Harden can certainly win one game by himself. If Houston is to avoid getting swept, this figures to be the game it will win. Take the Rockets in this situation.

NBA Betting Pick: Houston
