With some sides having already packed their bags, the reality of the NBA playoffs is starting to hit very hard for fans, as well as all punters and NBA betting apps. The Boston Celtics have a chance to book their place in the last 8, following a little wobble against the Miami Heat, the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks are locked in a classic, whilst the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks are battling it out too.

The Eastern Conference has been all about the Boston Celtics this season and they now sit just one game away from progressing through their first playoff test. So far, Miami Heat have proven to be tough opponents for the Celtics, with the Florida outfit having pushed them much harder than people expected. But with the series dormy at 3-1, the Celtics know that one more win here would get them over the line and the greens are the strong favourites to bag that victory with all NBA betting apps.

Dallas Mavericks to win the match @ 2.05 (PlayUp)

In what has been one of the most memorable playoff showdowns in recent years, the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks meet again, with the series locked at 2-2. Both sides have enjoyed the momentum at different periods in the series so far, but it feels as if a big game is coming and this could be it in California. The Clippers will be backed to the hilt and are always tough to beat but the Mavericks love spoiling the party and they could pick up a massive win on their travels in this one.

Philadelphia 76ers vs New York Knicks Best Bet

2nd May – Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia

Another very tight playoff series is on the agenda here, asv the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks clash. The 76ers find themselves 3-2 down in what has been a very topsy turvy series but they have their destiny in their own hands at home and they look to be firmly in the mix to progress with all punters and international betting sites. The New York Knicks have been mightily impressive throughout the season and certainly shouldn’t be discarded yet but the 76ers need to win to keep the series alive and they should just about manage to do that here.
