NBA Playoffs Preview & Tips, Friday 28th May

Tips, Previews and all you need for Friday's NBA playoff fixtures.

Three pivotal games in the complex of NBA playoffs take place and our team goes over the best bets from each game. 

The Lakers and Suns do battle, Bucks and Heat are in action as are the Nuggets and Trail Blazers. 

Milwaukee @ Miami

May 28th 9:30am

Miami host Milwaukee as it looks to avoid falling into a three-game rut after losing the first two games of the series in Wisconsin.

The Bucks won game one in overtime courtesy of a Khris Middleton midrange field-goal with 0.5 seconds left, before belting the Heat senseless on Sunday in game two.

The Bucks opened up an unassailable 26-point lead after the first quarter as they went on to streak the Heat by 34.

After being sent out short-priced favourite in each of the first two games, the Bucks are now the $1.79 elect to get the job done on Friday.

Milwaukee deserve the favourite tag and are a genuine championship threat. 

Suggested Bet: Milwaukee Bucks -1.5 at 1.90

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Milwaukee Bucks -1.5
Leg 2: K. Middleton over 17.5 points
Leg 3: Total points scored under 225.5
Combined odds = $5

Phoenix @ Los Angeles Lakers

May 28th 12:00pm

After pinching the second game of the series in Phoenix, the Los Angeles Lakers will be looking to make the Suns pay in Game 3 at the STAPLES Center.

The Lakers have been helped by Chris Paul’s injury which has opened up the series, leaving the Suns looking to find another avenue of creativity. 

LeBron James answered his doubters yet again  in Game 2 on Wednesday, while also getting help from Anthony Davis and Andre Drummond.

Young star Devin Booker will have to produce something mesmerising to put the Suns back in the front of this series. 

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles Lakers -6.5 at $1.91

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Los Angeles Lakers head to head (SGM SPECIAL)
Leg 2: L. James over 26.5 points
Leg 3: L. James over 6.5 assists
Leg 4: A. Davis over 6.5 rebounds

Combined odds = $4

Denver @ Portland

May 28th 12:30pm

Denver and Portland travel out to the Pacific Northwest for game three of the first Western Conference tie. 

The third-seeded Nuggets hit the road as it attempts to pinch back the lead in the series against the sixth-seeded Portland Trail Blazers in Game 3 on Friday. 

Portland slammed home a big 123-109 victory in Game 1 on the road and with it, home-court advantage. 

The Nuggets then returned the favour to level the series at 1-1 with a 128-109 home win in Game 2 on Tuesday. 

Damian Lillard could prove the difference in this game after he single-handedly attempted to lift Portland in Game Two with a 42-point 10-assist effort. 

A repeat of that form at home with a lift from a few of his team mates should see Portland take a 2-1 lead. 

Suggested Bet: Portland Trail Blazers -3.5 at $1.93

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Portland Trail Blazers head to head
Leg 2: D. Lillard over 30.5 points
Leg 3: Total points scored under 227.5 points
Combined odds = $4.5
